Here we are, almost half way though January already! Twelve days in, and already we've all been very busy.
We did have a lovely New Year's celebration at a friend's place - how fabulous was the storm that Melbourne had that night?? It's been a long while since I've seen that much lightning ... and rain too, for that matter. Very very welcome rain indeed.
We've also been very busy around the house - we've pulled down a couple of old pergolas, and we're currently building a new deck off the dining room - we're going to install bi-folds where the windows are currently, and make what is currently wasted space a lovely new outdoor area, with a spa!! It's coming along quite nicely - can't wait until it's all finished. Here are some progress pics for you ...
So you can see we're going to have a lovely, usable space there - really opens up the existing dining room too, which is great.
And I've had the chance to get a little creative too - it was Mum's birthday last week, so of course I had to make her a card, and I've done a sample for the January layout sketch challenge at Scrapchat ... feels good to get creative again!
Here's what I came up with ... using some of the lovely Kaiser Empire collection papers.
Well, I guess I should go and do some housework, and then think about starting to get dinner ready.
Hope everyone has had a great week so far, and I'll talk to you soon.
