This week I have been busy scrapping up a storm, but not at home, at work. Each morning this week I have had a group of children with me, scrapping their treasured 'family photos', its been lots of fun.
At home I have done nothing at all in the way of crafts, except organise bits and pieces for 'school scrapping'
Andrew and I are trying to adjust to having no children at home. Piece and tidiness is way over rated!

On the subject of tidiness, last Sunday we had a tidy up at Aimee's flat. here are a few photos of that...

Aimee's flat is right on the street pretty much and this is what you saw from the front...

....and after a clean up

Before.   This was the back yard, under that grass lays broken glass bottles, unbroken glass bottles, a wall clock, old rusted iron, and piece's of debri.....

After... what you see is what you get, its still not flash, but at least its safe now.

The back yard from another angle
.... By the way, has anyone seen that couch??? The land lady is wanting it back. It appears to have disappeared the week Aimee was at home. We thought Landlady must have taken it away, but it would seem she did not, odd as I'm not sure what use it would be to anyone?!

...and after. We have a compost where is couch used to sit.

Half an hours walk away now to Camden's new accommodation, which is a huge comparison to Aimee's place!...

Camden's room, like Aimee's faces out to the street front, only this street is nice and tidy and quiet!

Camden has his own ensuit, also very nice.

Abby, Camden's girlfriend has moved to Dunedin this year as well to study Vet nursing. Cam and Abby are both missing the country life.

Today we went to Dunedin to celebrate Camden's birthday. hard to believe my 'baby' is 16!

Back to scrapping now For fun I decide to pop a page into the Scrapbook Awards Web site, this was my pick...

Carol entered one of her delightful pages as well, do pop by and give her you vote. Her pages is wonderful.
I'd love to see some of your pages there as well...pop on your 'brave hat' and give it a go :-)

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.
