Oh my goodness - it's Saturday already

Hiya, I can't believe it is Saturday already - blah where have all those days gone?????? I'm sure it was only Monday yesterday!!!!!!! We have been busy - so I guess time does fly when you are having fun. We popped over to Emerald on Tuesday morning and did a spot of shopping then had a llllloooonnnngggg swim at the motel pool because it was sooooo hot then had a relaxed evening eating pizza in front of the tv. Then a spot more shopping Wednesday morning before going to see Alvin and the Chipmunks at the movie's with the boys (nice family time) then began the four hour drive back home again. But all in all a good time was had by all.

I have been trying to do a little something in the craft room each day but while Frankie is on days off we have also been back into the renovations. OOOOHHHHH my goodness - we have had so much fun NOT hehehe. We are working on Ashley's Room (13 year old son) and have given he and his younger brother the option of choosing their colour scheme (note to self - don't do that again) Ashley wanted black walls haha - like that was going to happen. So we had a long chat about decorating rules hehe and we compromised and he chose blue - ahhhhh safe colour you are thinking - NO - this is a 13 year old we are talking about. He chose the darkest of blue's and a black ceiling aaaaaahhhhhh - back to the compromising table again and we decided on a denim blue with a white ceiling - aaaaahhhhh a bit safer, but the colour ended up way darker than the colour sample so this is the result :

A bit dark for my liking but he loves it - and by the time we get all the white built in cupboards and desk put in, I'm sure it will tone it down a bit - I hope anyway. Still lots more to do - as our house is an old Queenslander it is all tongue and groove walls - so lots of gap filler happening. Frankie is currently sanding and cleaning the old windows, so they will be brilliant white as well - ooohhhh the fun of it all.  

Anyway I have had a little play in the craft room and here is what I came up with for the current challenge over at Lili's Little Fairies Challenge - it is your favourite LOTV stamp - yeah right as if I can pick my favourite - PLEASE!!!!! My favourite changes every day hehe - and I even have another wish list of my new favourites that I have to have. hehehe

I have also started a Christmas book - to keep all of my Christmas stuff in (like recipes and card lists etc) so  I will show you that in the next day or so. Ok talk soon x joy
