wowwee, she's a talented lady

Well not me but this Lady .

i mentioned in my previous post about an online class i was taking with Giovanna Scott.
well i finished my LO today and it was just so much fun.

so many fabulous techniques to learn, i even let loose with some free-hand craft knife cutting.
Now for me that is pretty scary stuff. lol

Just adore what Gigi showed us with the embossing!!

Here's the end result!

If you want to learn how to do it off you go here.

also i have scads of photo's from our week spent in sydney last week and will attempt to upload some of them just as soon as i can.
and i have some other lo's to share aswell.

How do I teach my kids......

take care of their belongings???????

Ok so we are 4 days back into a new term at school and the boys have their swimming program this week and next.

So, after 4 days of school this is the list of belongings lost/left at school;

-  3 (yes you read right THREE !!!!) school hats (all by the same child by the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

-  a pair of thongs!

-  one single thong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  (i mean how does that happen!!!! he does have two feet, put one on each foot and surely you should be able to keep track of BOTH thongs! )


a beach towel.

Oh and on the bright side we have GAINED a fluffy blue bath towel!!!!!
Never seen it before in my life but it appeared in my washing machine on tuesday (at least this proves i'm not the only mum this happens too) We did manage to find out who owns the towel and return it.

Thankfully we have managed to recover some of the things like the thongs and towel but It really makes me wonder what the next 10 or so weeks has in store for me.

How do i get them to check their bags and make sure they have everything in them?

Is it just a boy thing?

I'm at a loss!
