Easter Weekend...Update. My updates are few and far between these days. Life just seems to be super busy of late.
Below is a snap of what my dad is up to at the moment...can you guess??? ..he is building a stone wall. Dad has built countless walls for other people, now at last he is building one of his own.
Have to say, its no small task though!

A couple of weeks ago I spotted this shelf at the Resource Recovery Park, its was only $2 so I smartly grabbed it! It looked to be the perfect display shelf for a few of my stamps
.... here it is with a fresh lick of paint and mounted onto my craft room wall...perfect!

Last Saturday Andrew, Aimee and I drove to Christchurch early in the morning so Aimee could attend the Duke of Ed, Hillary Awards ceremony
This was one of those rear moments when somehow I ended up on the wrong side of the camera lens! Scary!!
We got to meet and have a short chat with the Governor General himself. Aimee had formal photos taken of her with the General, they can be viewed here (check out numbers 5526, DSc7288 and DSc7311)
After the ceremony and a rather long chat with old friends we headed home to get ready for Sundays journey to Dunedin!
The week ahead saw me racing against time to get my Up2scrap assignment done. This really was a tough one for me, but I got there, and I learnt heaps in the process, and can't wait to do more of the same... Look out for the next magazine :-)
On the subject of Up2scrap have you checked out the gallery of entries received for last months blog challenge... its wonderful to see so many of you joining in... and I LOVE each and every page!
Check them out HERE. Good luck girls !!

Lovely photos Sonya! And I'm soooooo jealous of your shelf! Need to go hunting now LOL. Yes, I had a really hard time (again) with the Up2Scrap brief, I was LATE turning it in 'cause I just couldn't find anything exciting to do! Terrible! But that's how we grow, right? Can't wait to see what you got to do my friend... :)

Here is my finished latest painting

Here is my finished latest painting
This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
