Is anyone Psychic?

Just a quick post today to wish you all a Happy New Year.

I can't believe we're already 5 days into January. I've not been doing too much lately as it's been too hot. Not just summer hot ... but unbelievably HOT!!! Yesterday it reached 37.5 degrees Celsius in our kitchen with all of the doors and windows open (apart from the bedrooms where we have air-conditioning).At the small aircraft airport (about 20 minutes away) it reached 43.5 degrees. You should have seen our dog playing with the large ice cube my husband put in his water bowl - it was puppy heaven!

I've also been searching through my house looking for a gold chain and diamond enhancer that I've lost/misplaced/left it where I shouldn't/can't for the life of me remember where I put it. If any of you out there are psychic, please tell me where to find it???! I'm going crazy as it is a combination of a couple of birthday gifts (including the enhancer which was my husband's present to me for my 50th just 5 months ago). 

I've also been doing some tidying up of my craft stuff and one of the things has been finishing off cards that I'd started and not finished or decided to make out of the scraps I had piled up. the card I'm showing today was one I made a while ago, but I didn't like how it turned out, so I pulled it apart and I've had the pieces floating around for far too long. Once I found my double-sided adhesive sheets (another thing I had lost but now have found), I decided to complete it how I think it should have been done in the first place. Get that??? :)

I didn't change it much at all - just changed the background from white heat embossed flowers with a plain outlined rectangle to the glittered rectangle and the remainder of the card white. (I wish I could work out how to photograph my white cards so they look white. Any ideas?) I love the effect of the glitter and IRL it really shows the shadows formed from having the flower and leaves raised with foam tape.

Anyway, that's all folks!

Bye for now,


  1. It has definitely been hot (as you say). We've been heading to the beach and hiding out under the air con too. sorry but I can't help find your jewelry but a friend returned a piece to me yesterday that was nearly sucked up by their vacuum... so you just never know. ps love the glittery background!

    1. Thanks, Therese. :) I've almost given up actively looking for it. I think I'll find it when it wants to be found. I wish I could just suck up part of it in the vacuum - be great. I'm envious you've got the beach handy - no such luck here. My bedroom is the closest thing to heaven at the moment. :) A friend suggested I take my ironing in there to do. I'm thinking strongly about it. Ha! How did you do in the storm yesterday? I haven't heard how the Gold Coast went. We were lucky, such a lot of rain and some blown down branches on the roads. Bye.


Thanks for your comment. I'm glad you've enjoyed my blog.
