Just a quick Hello :D

Hey guys :D
Just A quick post today, Just wanted to share my exciting news with you all. Last Month thanks to Lisa K, I sent in some Layouts to an online magazine company - Scrapbook News and Reveiw and to my absolute suprise they want to publish all 3 I sent in :D Wahooo, anyways this mag was supposed to come out on sunday but the company have had a family issue that needs urgent attention, so we are told the mag may come out by the end of the month :D
Also my very recent layout-Photoshoot has been picked up for publication from Scrabooking Memories :D wahoo anouther happy dance. So thats my excitement hehe.

On anouther note I havent quite done the markets yet with my notebooks, I have a friend AKA Tanya who will also be joining me, so we have until april to get our things up and running, then we'll go down and see. But in the meantime head on over and check out her blog HERE, she is one quirky lady let me tell you. But I have done anouther 2 small notebooks, sorry bout the picture quality. But if anyone is interested in a notebook just drop me an email. Hopefully soon I will have other handmade items, just gotta pull my finger out lol.

One last thing, My little bubba Savannah-Rose Turned 5 Months not too long ago. Simply can not believe how quickly she's growing. A few little facts about her...
weighs just under 10kg, is in 000. Eats just about everything, has been on solids for a while now, mashed pumpkin, fruit jelly and banana are her absolute favourites. She is almost crawling, is now up on all 4 rocking. Refuses to sit though lol. She also giggles alot at her brother and also screams alot at him. She hates to be left alone for a split minute but loves to be left alone in peace and quite when she's sleeping. She absolutely loves her family as we love her. We can not imagine our lives without her now, it feels like she's been apart of our family forever. Anyhoos mama loves you baby girl xxx

LOL ok that wasnt really a quick post, so i'll leave it there. Have a FAB day peoples, Thanks for dropping by. Your comments just warm my heart. Much love xxx

The week that was...and some scrap :D

Hi peeps,
Wow what a week we have had in our household this week. Some good and some not so good :( On wenesday, we had a little drama, due to my stupidness. I put Savannah-Rose to sleep on my bed, and thought she'd be safe enough to leave peacefully on my bed. She was in a deep sleep so I thought nope she wont roll over this time, but just to be sure I stacked loads of pillows up beside her anyway. Well I was out of the room for just over 5 minutes when all of a sudden I heard this all mighty scream, ran in to find Savannah had done exactly what I hoped she wouldnt, she was lying on the floor on her stomach, I quickly picked her up and she seemed fine until I walked out of the room to check her over some more, as I was holding her against my forearm, the colour started to dissapear from her face, her eyes began to roll back in her head and she passed out. I quickly blew on her face and called her name and poked her and she came back to me, but again went back into unconsiousness, so again I did the exact same to bring her back to me while running to the phone to ring the ambulance. The whole time I was on the phone she kept going in and out of unconsiousness. The ambos arrived and we were taken to the hopsital where we remained for 4 hours observation, Thanfully she got the all clear, they think it might of just been the initial shock of falling from a deep sleep. So now as the saying goes "you gotta learn the hard way" and yup thats exactly whats happened, I just feel so terrible that something like this had to happen before I learned. So now I will no longer let her sleep on my bed unattended. So I just want to say a huge thanks to everyone that thinks I'm not a terrible mother even though I feel so horrible. Thanks lys for being there and comforting me.
Anyways on anouther note, I did some Scrappin :D I actually did 2 layouts in 1 day, so not like me, my average atm is 1 layout a week LOL. Never seem to find any time to do scrappin now a days. So these layouts are for nothing in particular but for me, my own pleasure. This year I have turned down some DT positions to just focus on my family and myself. I hope you like. The photoshoot layout, I had sooo much fun creating, and as you can probably tell I went sewing crazyyy!! Although I did have some cranky moments at the sewing machine lol.

Now this layout I am just in love with, I am totally in love with this range of paper atm, its the October Afternoon Farm fresh range, its all just so natural, just love it!! I also created my labour layout with this range too. And how cute are these pinwheels?? LOL you wont beleive this but Until last night I never actually knew how to make a pinwheel, how sad is that!! Hope you like :D

Also last week I have had a little bit of luck on my side, In one of my previous posts I mentioned about a blog candy over at scrapfarm, well to my suprise my name was picked out, wahooo :D So can not wait to receive that in the post :D Also over at Born2create this month we participated in a Valentines Swap. So everyone had to make a card and Chris W would pick her favourite, then whoever won would be sent a Valentines ATC from the rest of the particapants. I am just so appreciative, because my ATC was picked, so now everyday I am receiving beautiful ATC's from all the talented ladies from Born2create. Thanks Chris W for picking me, thankyou also to the girls for participating, was seriously alot of fun. Anyhoos I will put a pic Up of the terrific cards when I receive them all :D
Well this post is seriously too long, so I better end it here. Take care awesome people. Much love Belynda AKA lyn xxx

New Venture for me :D

Hey guys,
A few of my friends aswell as my mum have suggested I start my own little market by making a few things. At first I was really hesitant, but thought what the heck, the worse that could happen is they wont sell, LOL. At least then I can say yup well I lived and learned from that experience. So i'm only going to start small and let my venture lead me wherever it may. So here are a few pics of what I will be beginning with, what do you think? I have a few more ideas of other projects, but we'll see. Ive already sold 2 pre order journals to a friend so I guess thats a good indication. Arhh sorry for my rambling, just a tad bit nervous about it all. The first 3 Journals are $12~ and the last pic is a small notebook for $5~. Im actually doing a carboot sale on sunday to get rid of a few household items, so I might try them down there just to begin with then move onto the market.

Anyhoos, I have also just completed my next lot of ATC cards for the local swap here and also One of these ATC's will be for a winner in a Valentines ATC swap on Born2Create. It might be a little hard to see, but I have added Journal paper onto Cardboard, then have run it through the cuttlebug then Glimmermisted and inked. Pebbles is also raised up so it looks as if Bam Bam is looking up and across at her. I just love this image, its too cute :D

Sorry guys will have to cut it short there, little miss Savannah-Rose is crakin up, will share some more with you soon. Take care chicky Babes!!! xxxx
