Welcome from the city of the G20

Hi to all!

Just wanted to say "Hi," and to let you know that all is reasonably fine in the crafting world of A Dash of Flash.

I've been trying, lately, to create my first video tutorial. It's slowly coming along, but I am hoping to get it to you by the end of this week. What it's about - you'll have to wait and see. It's quite difficult to get everything working together to get the various bits filmed and then edited, but I'm liking the results so far. What I could have done with is an enormous cage with a camera spot right over the table, so I could just climb in and everything would be in place (No shadows from the tripod legs) - unfortunately, no-one's going to be building me a cage any time soon. :)

Things are really different in my city at the moment with the G20 conference taking place. Too bad we're having a heat wave this weekend with the expected temperature to reach 40 degrees Celsius tomorrow. It's so hot! You know that song that goes "you'll always find me in the kitchen at parties", well I'm making my theme song "you'll always find me in my bedroom on hot days". Ha! 

My husband went into the city the other night and took photos of some of the buildings that had been lit up for the G20. I'm also hoping to get a photo to share, once he gets around to downloading it from his phone.

It's also pretty busy with end of year school activities, as my son gets ready to finish his primary schooling. There's the end of year school concert, puberty talks, the high school induction program, as well as his graduation night dance. Over the past fortnight we went shopping for an outfit for him to wear and he is going to look so cool ! We got him a dark grey pair of trousers, long sleeved white shirt with a light blue striped tie and a grey vest to go with it. He'll be wearing black shoes, belt and a grey hat (I think it's called a trilby) with it.

Anyway, that's all from me for now.

  1. Sounds like you have been busy! I can't wait to see your video tutorial, that is so exciting Janelle. I'm also glad to see that Brissie survived G20, the Coast was busy with people who 'escaped' from the busy and the heat. I mostly just relaxed (post night duty) and made some cards lol. Now I'm back at work, camping this weekend and visitors next weekend, then I suppose it'll be Xmas... See you real soon with that video!


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