Some recent layouts...

Just thought I would share some of my recent layouts...The first is a pic of the ute that I shared in the previous post...and the second is of Miss Bella a little while ago now - she is growing up soooo fast. I wish I could see her more often - but I was lucky enough to spend the whole day with her and Trina and my Mum and my Nana even came to visit - last Wednesday. It was such a fantastic day and I really didnt want to go home...
Well I will share some more layouts soon - the first of the month to be precise!!! and I will be blogging more often this year and that is a promise!

Happy Australia Day!!!!

I know I said I would be back last night - but what a day....and then oh so hot last night and I just didnt feel like being on the computer....(I dont now - but I did promise...and as soon as I am done, I am going to go and put my bikinis (sorry to scare you all!) on and jump in the pool!!!!!

So here are some pics of what we experienced here over the last couple of weeks - it wasn't a very nice feeling I have to say...

This is on the corner of Brisbane and East Streets in Ipswich. This is the complex where Suburban Mayhem is (my daughter's clothing shop) and it went under up to thigh high on me. We managed to get all of the stock out - but all the fittings are damaged beyond repair. Dacynta is devastated to say the least....

This was before the peak of the tide. Lots of dirty, smelly, brown water and mud inundated the complex.

This is John (my husband) on his way to work on the Tuesday morning....The current just picked him up and took him out to deeeeeep water....

And this is a pic of Ipswich - The Bremer River - from the main bridge....You could not imagine the amount of water that was really had to see it to believe it...although I saw it and I still don't believe it.

These were photos of my own personal experiences - there were many of my friends, and many strangers who have lost everything. My heart goes out to all those people who lost a little or a lot.....

hehehe.....well that didn't last long did it???

I know....I shouldn't make promises about making blog posts should I? In my defence it has been a pretty horrific couple of weeks with the floods and all the devastation that has come with it and of course now....I am back at work....

I have been very busy organising the next Stick 'n' Giggle retreat - and applying some of the finer details there and of course - creating!!!! Getting in as much as I could inbetween everything else that has been going on....

I will be back tonight (this I do promise) with all the details of the retreat and some pics of the floods and of what I have been up to!

See you then! xo
