In between eating rocky road "till the cows come home.."  :-)   I've managed to create some new goodies for my Etsy Shoppe.  Teacup posies are amongst my favourite things to design .. I love doing those almost as much as I love eating rocky road.
You can check them out from the linked words above....

a little tag for you below ..

Craving rocky road....
been doing that for a few days now so I broke down today and got the ingredients I needed to make some.  It's gorgeous and I haven't had any of it since I left Australia 13 years ago.  I think its time I did ....  :-)
I'll let you know how it turned out ...  and how long it lasted ...  lol...
in the meantime here is another pretty image for you to save.  A note though... PLEASE DON'T UPLOAD THEM TO ANYWHERE ELSE.  I've seen some of my stuff in places I never knew existed and that's a no-no.   They are for your personal use only.

Found these in my files this morning....
I'd forgotten about them so I'll share some more soon...
save them if you wish.

I love reading and have recently finished two books.  One was about the Casey Anthony trial .. "Presumed Guilty".... and I'm not entirely sure about what her lawyer claims to be the truth in the death of her daughter.  It was a whole mixed up family and sadly little Kaylee was the victim. Interesting read but he didn't convince me that she wasn't guilty.  My other book was a Victorian mystery by Anne Perry... "Dorchester Terrace" ... the latest in her long list of creations.  She sure does know how to write historical facts ...  and I love the main characters .. Charlotte and Thomas Pitt.... :-))

It's been too hot here to do much else other than sit and keep cool and read.  Now that I have passed my drivers test and have my licence I can get back to my Kindle and read some more interesting things other than the road rules book...

I sure will be glad when the USA election is over. I am sick and tired of all the political banter every single day on the news stations. And Obama... he's on "Entertainment Tonight" .. "The View" .. "Today show" .... good heavens anyone would think he's a tv personality rather than the President. I wish he'd stay at the White House and do his job.  Urgh!!

Don't forget to use the coupon code for a 10% discount at my Etsy Shoppe. There are over 360 digital collage sheets for you to use any way you wish ... even commercial purposes.  Lots of ways to design with them, be creative and make yourself some money this summer.....



I've enjoyed some of the Olympics this time but don't think its all as good as it used to be. I'm not impressed by the very, very skimpy outfits the girls wear playing Volleyball or the runners .... and was surprised when they said one country's rules told them their outfits weren't short enough.... wow... if they got any smaller we'd see what they had for breakfast (as we say back home in Oz.)  !!!!!
I don't like the gymnastic girls tossing around the ball or basically doing ballet whilst they twirl a stick around with a ribbon attached to it.  My favourites were the cyclists, and the diving.   I'm glad its over .... hopefully we'll get back to having some of our normal programs on again now and the host country can tally up the gigantic cost of these games.

So glad I passed my drivers test... :-)
Doesn't help me this week that I have the flu and feel rotten.... oh well.... I have something nice to look forward to as soon as I feel better. I'll be out and about ....



a pretty topper for you .... I love to use these on my blogs or to add to an email with a greeting on it.... this one is particularly pretty I think....

I am taking my driving test tomorrow so I won't get much sleep tonight.  Hating it, hating it... :-)   but I sure will be happy if I finally can drive here in Canada after driving in Australia for some 36 years. It all seems silly that its not an automatic swap over ...  I think I must have read the road rules book about twenty times... but its sure not easy when everything is reversed.  Driving on the other side of the road is strange and difficult... after my old brain has been programmed to do it another way for all those years.  If I don't pass then its back to the bicycle....
