“Wisdom begins in wonder. Be as you wish to seem.” ~Socrates

I've had a productive day around the house & with creating which has been very satisfying.

I put together this layout of me as a baby sitting on the beach with my mother. I was born in Queensland & we lived in Brisbane for the first 5 years of my life. Our family often visited the beach but also travelled around on holidays regularly.

I'm not exactly sure of the date but I was born in October & look about 6 months old...that makes it around April. It makes me laugh to see me & my mother both in knitted cardigans! Oh well, maybe it was winter in Qld. We can't check anymore, sometimes we make up the times, places & faces when we aren't sure...who's going to argue?

I also made up some thankyou cards for an upcoming event I am planning, these were pretty simple.

While I was creating I had lamb shanks cooking away in the slow cooker. It is very nice to come home after a hard day at work & know the crock pot will yield something delicious but it is also nice to know the effort you put in in the morning will reward you in the evening, even if you have been home all day. The recipes I am trying have turned out nicely, the roast chicken on Saturday was beautiful, so moist & tasty.

I also whipped up a caramel walnut slice in between going to the hospital for a meeting. All in all a very good day. If I didn't have to pack up all the scrapping stuff now I'd be a very happy girl.

  1. We had Lamb shanks for dinner last night that I had cooked on Sunday - a big favourite in my house. Cooking make me happy to - feel like I have achieved something.

    Love the black and white cards.
