Only a Week to Go!

I hope you all celebrated well on Australia Day (the 26th) and will enjoy the public holiday today!
Many people here in Tasmania are finished up their summer holidays at the beach and will be heading home as school starts next week too.

The final week(end) had been a bit fraught with bushfires everywhere in the state, mostly started with dry lightening strikes. The fuel is so dry everything is burning too easily. All very sad. However, the rest of the summer was a bonzer time. 

A beautiful capture of a dingy on Stewarts Bay beach. 
This little gem of a spot is in a sheltered bay, perfect for swimming and kayaking, whilst wildlife abounds here with many native animals calling the beach and surrounding bush home.

There is only one more week until we begin our new challenge year
#86: (Wonder what the challenge will be) with a TWIST (mmm, how will I do that?)

Remember, we do not allow STAMPS, either digital or rubber or acrylic or wood
However, we do allow everything else to do with papercraft!

We have a few new members of the Design Team and will introduce them throughout the month. 
Please welcome them.

Meanwhile, keep crafting and enjoying life!

Welcome to 2019!

I hope you are all crafting up a storm out there and enjoying the new year. 

 Our days have been mostly barmy and dreamy

This is on the North West tip of Tassie

WOW... sunset at Marrawah thanks to Aussie Destinations Unknown who says:
How gorgeous is this pic we snapped at Marrawah? Can you see the moon in the middle of that epic sunset? 👌🏼♥️ It’s one of the most picturesque places we’ve free-camped yet. 🤙🏼

We have had a glorious summer to date - some days a bit windy and one day very smokey and a bit scary for those of us who remembered the 1967 bushfires in Hobart. However we were not showered with ash or burning leaves this time.....

Taken by me last week in the city at the top of Murray Street

...but on the whole it has been blues skies and glorious warm weather. 

This is at Bridestow  in the North East
The lavender farm is quite famous, particularly in Japan and China....
