This week has been a whirlwind.
A good whirlwind.
We were blessed to have the gorgeous Michelle Jacquemet, from San Francisco, come stay with us.
She was visiting Australia and I had said if she got this far we would have a bed waiting for her.
So for 2 nights she was our guest and we had a lovely time.
The girls LOVED having her here and I really enjoyed spending time showing her around.
We started at Mount Wellington,
With the wind and the cloud
We also spent some time viewing the wildlife
The Tasmanian Devil
A Koala, who was far to eager to pose
I introduced Michelle to the Emu
and she quickly realised why I passed on feeding them
But she had no problem feeding the Kangaroo, who was too lazy to get up and be fed!
and speaking of fed…
Michelle was brave enough to try some local delights.
We introduced her to Tim Tams and Milo, which of course led to Tim Tam slams.
I think she liked this because she wanted more the next day (hehehe)
And right before she left we found some Potato Cakes, Dim Sims and a chiko roll
Yep, we fed her the good stuff!
She is now continuing her Australian trip in a warmer state, but we really enjoyed having her visit.
Hopefully our paths will cross again!
Before Michelle got here I had started a page inspired by the latest Kraft It Up challenge.
Today I finally got around to 1. cleaning my scrap desk and 2. photographing my page
I used up scraps from the November Cocoa Daisy kit
I packed up my kit today, I was surprised I only had 3 pieces of pattern paper that I hadn’t cut into!
Just shows how cool that kit is!!
Love that chicken wire Crafter’s Workshop stencil
And speaking of NUTZ… is the end of year busy hitting you yet?
Last weekend I bought a desktop calendar for 2013
It has nice big spaces for each of the days and I’m already making notes of things to write on it.
What is next year looking like for you?
Are you already making plans?
Do you have any big things happening in 2013??
