Nathan is at what we here is South Africa would call the *lomp* stage! (feet toooo large, and body growing quicker than he knows what to do with-KWIM?)- and he is soo accident prone- last night he dropped his plate, and it's a constant bump into things- WEEELLLL, today I could have strangled him with my bare hands- lol. I've just managed to get back from the shops and I'd bought a brand new lamp for the lounge ( our old one is really OLD_lol), and you know how excited you get about how something is going to look and can't wait to get it home to *decorate*- BAH, that went down the tubes BEFORE we got the car! He dropped it just outside the SHOP!! OMG, I didn't know wether to strangle him or feel sorry for him. He looked up and just kept repeating *sorry mom, sorry mom, sorry mom*- LOL. So now I have a *bits and pieces* lamp and a really old one still-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
Oh well, maybe it wasn't the lamp for the lounge and I'll just have to keep looking! Wayne's putting in a *insurance claim* for it so at least I will be able to replace for the same value! PHEW. ( And Nathan is breathing a little easier too-lol)
OOOh we were going to do more reveals on the NOVEMBER GRAB BAG- which will be GONE TOMORROW.
How about I REVEAL ALL the GOODIES today- YAY,
Yup, there are 8 brand new product files in here to play and create with ( that's only $1 per kit!) the one has 9 overlays in alone -
so grab it now before its GONE tomorrow.
This is for personal and Commercial Use ;-).
I'm glad you all liked my *bauble photos*- I'm so chuffed they actually came OUT_ hahahahaha, don't laugh- I swear I'm no gurru with the camera, and just experiment and play ( hahaha- just like Photoshop)- and I was so happy that it wasn't a BLACK image! Don't ask me what settings I used because I can't even remember now- LOL, but I'm sure I will get it again when I start playing.
I wanted to show you some other goodies I've done for Christmas before- these I made for my Sisters Christmas shop in Dullstroom( now she does them herself- lol, as I only have time to do the odd one here and there, and for gifts too) Please excuse the photo's tho as these were taken with my very old camera and the pics have lost some of the *detail*-
These were SMALL wooden star ornaments that I painted in a little set-
I LOVED doing these- they were so much fun- I also did the more traditional colours too-
(photo was blurred)- this was my sisters fav- lol, and I liked him too. He was also a SMALL bell originally ;-)
These where what my sister called HO HO HO's- lol, and man did I have these coming out my ears! They were HUGE and hung down the wall-
A closer view-, but the detail in the beard is washed out- ARRGH, bloody 3 mg pixel cameras hahahahaha
this one is an ORIGINAL(only one I made) and hangs on my dear friends Deons Door at Christmas time- LOL. I made it specially for him and it even has separated wooden pieces ( like glasses, nose, mitts, sign and star) so it's dimensional too- My dad does all the cut outs for me- I just hand him a drawing and he does the rest! How cool is that- hahahah-But with our * Tropical Summer Christmas* here I thought you would enjoy this one- hahahahaha.
Yeah there are tons more- and I'll show you some other goodies over the month- it's great having ideas sparked by what others do and I am having a ball seeing all the cards etc that others are making as it just gets the creative juices flowing don't you think?
OOOOH and Look at this-
This cutie is from Renee - Love the paper layering!
And Renee has a CU freebie up on her blog too!
And another GORGEOUS LO-
How CUTE is this LO- OMG, I LOVE it! I remember having photo's like this on Santa's lap- I think I need to go bug my dad again-LOL.

Still got my parcels to unpack- some boxes to fill and wrap for posting first thing in the morning- hee hee, Will chat more tomorrow- Hugs and Loves Kim
