Next month I head away on a big adventure with my good friend Annemarie,its her adventure really ,she has been dreaming of this for years. Where do I come into the picture? Well it was a crazy idea that popped into my head one sunny afternoon last year,after id joined Annemarie on a Garden Walk and then a drink or two at the Glenavey Hotel on our way home. Think Annemarie said "you should come with me"and I maybe said ..."why not, perhaps I will"..and now here I am. I have a brand new pack, sleeping bag, tramping boots and half the clothing stock from the Katmandu store in Christchurch ..more than im ever going to be able to fit into that nice new pack (told you Hannah, Aimee ,Debbie and Andrew that I needed a much bigger one). Anyway on the 17th of next month I set off for Peru for a whole month. So I hope to share some of my adventure on my blog as I go, so my friends and family can,in a small way, share my adventure to. How do I feel...terrified at the moment and worried about everything from the plane going down to forgetting to take my roll of tiolet paper and bag of soap ends. So let the count down begin...

Altered Mouse Traps

Goodness me, its been ages since I've crafted or blogged. My first creative project this year....MOUSE TRAPS !!

These were made for a Swap over on our NZ Paper Chase Facebook page.

I wanted to make each of my three traps useful

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.
