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....

  8. Hi Susan I do scrap and am on a few DTs for that which takes up quite a lot of my scrapping. But seeing as you also do other crafts I thought I'd try out for your team too. In my spare time (usually in front of the tv!) I dabble in quilling. Please check out my blog and let me know if those things would interest your followers.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. The Design Team really appreciate it. Have fun with the challenge.
