Merry Christmas!

I needed somewhere to share my Christmas chair cover idea so here it is.Cover the chair with a pillowcase, tie some wide ribbon around, attach bow and sprig (purchased @ 75% off RRP on Christmas Eve from Spotlight!) and voila! Two minutes to put together and I think the end result is well worth it. I can't wait to get the rest of the table done now.

Merry Christmas!!!!

through the provision of craft supplies, products and

in lasting memories and art.
We understand the value of creating beauty.
We bel ieve in nurturing each woman’s unique
We believe in supporting each other.
We do this through with a generosity of spirit to
support women in their creativity, to recognise it’s
importance in the lives of women and their families.
And in turn to give women the space to create art so

Autumn Escape Shenanigans!

The best friends a girl could have!

The wonderful Tattered Inspirations Design Team!
Back: Carol Mead, Michelle Lark
Front: Helen Jolly, Rachel Walsh

I couldn't resist this cool apron from the local gift shop!

I was blessed a couple of weekends ago to go away with the nicest group of friends and fellow scrapbookers, whom I now call friends too, to the Gold Creek Resort in Canberra for the Autumn Escape Retreat organised by the lovely Carol from Tattered Inspirations. As a member of the Design Team, I had the pleasure of teaching my very first class at the retreat and I have to say that I loved the experience! I enjoyed seeing how everyone individualised their layout based on the class kit. I was so pleased with the results and thank everyone for showing support for my work by participating in the class.

I also won a scraplift challenge, inspired by a layout of Karyn's! 
Thanks Karyn for sharing such a gorgeous layout!

I can't wait to do it all again next year for the Spring Fling!!!
