New Project - Project Life

I'm not sure why... but I have decided to take up a new project.... Yip.. thats it... Project Life.  It's not like I have extra time on my hands, or have retired, or have broken a leg and Im stuck to a scrapping chair for the next 6 months... but I think it is because I am just totally addicted to scrapping and I am keen for a new challenge.  Like I said, Im not sure when I will fit it in... but I always manage to do whatever I want to do.  I just go  and go and go.
I have been over the past onto collecting papers and tags and stickers and embellies to put all together for this project.  I'm not sure how I am to get organised for it... but I am going to go in my scrapping room tonight and do a whole lot of cutting up and organising.
I am planning to start this in January 2013 but I wanted to have a bit of a play with it today.
Im pretty happy with how it come out.. I want to get a few more stamps and numbers for dates etc.  But as far as I can see it is a great way to document 52 weeks of one year.!

That's all folks
Hope you all had a great weekend.  I only got today of.  So I am hoping to go to bed early and sleep like a baby.  Need the rest before a 6 week day at work next week.
Take care

Keeping Busy

Well life never seems to slow down.... just when you think you can take a breather... well that's just a joke... no rest time in my life..
I have been working heaps the past few weeks, trying to make cards which I am selling really well, and also fitting in some scrapping as well as my gym training.  I miss my boys so much.  I love them to bits.  And when you get home at 6pm after work, well it doesnt leave much play time.  But I feel blessed that we are a content wee family and are 100% happy with each other when we do get that quality time.
My DH is away atm due to work commitments so I have been catching up on some social time in between my working schedule.  
Corey and I went over to my girlfriends place on Sunday night for a sleep over.  She lives on the water near where we used to live and where I miss a lot.  We had a few drinkies and made a yummy dinner.... followed my a great night in to scrap.  Corey and Tex get on fabulous so he loves going over there.  We leave our pushbikes at her place and we go for rides on them when we are over.  Great place to ride along the water at Kawana.  Corey and I slept in while Tex went to work and we had the most funnest time together.  It was a pupil free day and I took the day off work as Daddy is away. Love that bonding time with him.  He is the apple of my eye just like Danielle is to me.
Well anyway enough of me.... here are a couple of layouts I have done .  

Was nice to pull out my stamps and get them wet with the ink.  Bit of Teresa Collins washi tape, twine, Prima chipboard, and Tattered Angels Chalkboard.  Prima and Technique Tuesday stamps.  Love them all.

I loved this paper when I saw it.  Thought mmmm I could play with that..not sure how but I need it.  How coooool is this pretty happy and motivating sunshine .
The coolest thing about Amy Tans products is they are all so funky and bright, full of energy and happiness.  They are one of my favourites.  I love the cute wee clouds in the top right hand corner.   And of course a cute as button from The Greatest View.  These totally rock girls!!!

Love the Amy Tan date stamp too.  It says SNAPSHOT and the date.  It has about 12 or so words on it you can add to your date or leave it blank.  Soo cool for $6

Thats it for now.  Hope you all have a great week and looking forward to the weekend. 
Love Moonie x

Our Student

Well after a huge week at work this week... I could barely keep my eyes open when I got home Friday night but I still managed to get to Daisys that evening for another great night scrapping with the girls.
As tired as I am and my hubby doesn't get it... it is a wind down time for me.  It's always hard to get there as I work all day Friday and Saturdays now and I dont get home from work til 6pm on a Friday night and I am there first thing in the morning for a full day again.  I basically have a shower, my hubby has a bourbon poured for me and my bags backed in the car for me by the time I am dressed again.. and we sit for about 20 min before I get in the car again to head out for the night.  I am normally tucked into bed by about 1.30- 1.45am Saturday morning.  So after working 6 days this week, including a 9pm finish and Daisys.. work today.. tonight I am buggered.  But it's all worth it.  I am planning on a good night sleep tonight and a nana nap sometime tomorrow.
I am loving the collages I am playing with atm and this is one of them that I printed out last week. I have used cardstock and made my own poloroid frames for the smaller prints.  I love them.   I just really love these photos of my Corey at school.  He loves school and is doing really well.  His favorite is Maths.. He is so smart when it comes to sums.
Anyway this is what I put together using a list of different products.

The very cute Amy Tan tag with Happy Memories.. Perfect for this layout and the cute Basic Grey tag and flag I have used.

Another Amy Tan journal tag.. They are so perfect.. I love her collections

My HAPPY Space

Since I am such a craft scrapoholic and I am also a night owl, I have been blessed by my hubby to have the biggest room in the house for MY SPACE.  I must admit since being here for 2 years now I have accumulated a certain amount of... ummm.. stuff and furniture to accommodate it in here.  I spend at least 3 hours in here a night... unless I am seriously sick.  I either scrap, sit and ponder online, make cards, sew, or just tidy and reorganise.  I am a huge fan of storage containers, boxes, totes, cute cosmetic bags or purses you can pop a few inks in etc.... so I like to swap my things over so the others don't get left out.
There are many special sentimental things in my room.  My husband is very happy I have a happy place and he is a good supporter of my scrapping.  Sure he might not read the journalling on my layout when he looks at it.. but then I tell him too... with a stern voice lol... that is the most important part I say.  I have a king single bed in here for my hubby and son to come and join me sometimes and on the weekends they will watch the footy or the fishing show or like in the holidays Corey will come and join me and just watch a movie.  I love the company.. but not all the time LOL

I bought the blinds.. well not really blinds... from Loot.. they are all plastic crystal like beads.. Love the sparkle they give to my room.

My MOONIE and heart that my husband bought me to add to my room and the cute bird on a branch that was a gift from a great friend Lisa Hayes.
My $20 white storage unit I got from a Garage sale.  I have my punches, inks and stamps in there.
The white book case on the right was also bought at a garage sale for $30

This unit is the expensive piece in here.  It was our TV unit for 4 years but sadly (grin) our telly is on the wall in the lounge.. and simply..... NO ROOM for it.. Perfect for my 12 x 12 Art bins and other stashes.

And there is room for 7 in here.  This is the spare desk for my besties when they come to scrap.  This was also a scratched table from Ikea I picked up for $20.  I must mention that my gorgeous big fat white two pack dining table I use for my scrapping desk was $400 at AMart but got it in the dints and damaged corner for $100.  It has a perfect small scratch on the top exactly where my craft mat sits.

A few little sentiments

Ikea book case.. Worth its weight and gold

My beautiful Dad who we lost a wee while ago.. Dad and I to the left and my sister and I playing his guitar on our first Fathers Day without him :-(

My most amazing two children.  I worship the ground they walk on.  I miss this girl so badly.  Words cannot explain how much.  She has been gone for 3 years now and it seems like a life time.  She is so happy up north now living the life she wants to.. but I will forever have a very lonely empty spot in my heart for however long she is away from me.  It's is life I know.. but I cannot stand the pain sometimes. She is and will always be Mummies best friend... Ok... crying now... sob sob  .... lump in thoat.. ok moving on..
and Corey... well at least I get the biggest cuddles and I LOVE YOU MUMMA ten times a day still.. So that brings smiles to me

My two besties.... my girl on her 17th birthday and my soul mate from Mackay on a visit to me a year ago.  This was our goodbyes and we were gutted.  I will love this girl forever. We have been friends for 16 years

Love this... It is nice and slim line and I have it sitting right next to me on my desk.

All couple of sentimental gifts from friends

And that's my space.... I would love to see your space too... so get out your cameras.. Big or small rooms or spaces or wherever you scrap... It's all interesting to take a look at how others create.
Big week for me this week at work so since it is 11.39pm I should get some zzzzz's in.
Night night for now...
Thanks for letting me share with you
