Sunset bliss..

Oh My God....
Where Have I been..
well who really knows, I'm pretty sure like most of you time just goes.. somewhere.... and we all get lost in what has happened and what is going to happen. and where we want to be.
This year has been a whirlwind... I jumped off of a bridge and started Uni...
YEP. wow.. what a learning curve. not just in the content of the course but within myself.
I'm just about to finish a Diploma of community welfare and development major in psychology. I took this path because I didnt know whether I was smart enough to do psychology or if I wanted to take the counselling route.. and well I have decided that although I am smart enough I am going down the counselling road as it is a little more personal than psychology. oh and I wont have to do a course in statistics.. WINNING....
so back to everything else.
I have just started a new job which I am loving, meeting country locals is great. and I am moving. So unfortunately I wont have my paddocks outside my window but I'll  be in a small country town. I've decided to give it a year and then try and find a farm house to rent. so now I have a goal and a direction.....
oh and LOVE life.. well I am still single but I am happy. YES mum I am putting myself out there but will see what happens. I spent a little time getting to know a man and found part of myself within that journey. I know that country life is for me. and I've learnt a little more about the type of man that I want and value in my life. They say we meet people to learn from, who will be in our lives for short time or a long time. I think I have definitely found a long time friend and for me that is just as important and a lover. Don't get me wrong a lover would be nice but for now, I am happy and keep on keeping on...

What I actually came here for was to share my layout for Show Us Your Stuff, November Challenge..
so the prompt is...

 Pretty simple right.. so NO PEOPLE ALLOWED and of course the handmade something something...
My take..
"Sunset Bliss"
My handmade items are a pin from My 2 Angels, Charms creations DIY map marker and Rainbow Splendour Wood Veneer heart and cross... 
some details.. 
so thats it for me.. 
Maybe my blog will stop being so neglected however you know I can't promise much.. 
except. 
stay true to yourself and don't be scared to let go some times......

lots of love.... xo

Kraft Plus for January.

howdy,
Just calling in to leave a little something that i created for the Kraft Plus challenge..
so the prompt was.....
and well how easy is that. so i thought that i would give it a whirl. 
and this is what i came up with. 
"blessed with a country soul"
yep its an unusual size. i cant even know what actual size it is. just a random piece of kraft coloured matte board that i thought i would use..
so simple. 
a couple swipes of gesso, so random splashes of colour and a mix of .. well.. stuff.
not forgetting the Rainbow Spendour rabbit pin and mixed leaves... 
and a scrapmatts frame...
and of course some handwriting, in this case the title and then a side note of ivy.
this all just came together. i very rarely plan a layout so its kind of my style.

anyho. 
a little fore warning. this year is going to be a BIG one for me
lots of pressure, some stress. and some of the kids thrown in so i might be here to vent more often than anything. but please still leave some love..
have a wonderful night/day...
tell someone you love them.

Onwards and Upwards to better things in 2016

Good morning 2016 how the freak are you.........................

so we are onto a new year which always means a new start.
well I'm back for another term at Show Us Your Stuff 
{they must be suckers for punishment}

so for this new year we have a mood board..
I love a mood board.. open to whatever inspires you ...
 Delicious isn't it....
So I took my inspiration from the splash of red and the dash of summer and sand.

"Hi There"
The pattern paper is from Cocoa Vanilla Studio along with the paper flowers, paper cloud, title and the film strip. They are all part of the hello lovely range.. which is so so good...
 this photo is so old of Ivy but its still one of my favourites. 
and heck  yes its so different for me. 
i loved creating it though which for me is pretty much the most important reason for me to create. 
and some details for you. 
DLish flair and wood veneer frame.
Wood veneer cloud and star left natural from the superb Rainbow Splendour


and the Vellum Bow is also from Rainbow Splendour.

so there you go.. 
January 2016 is off to a flying start.

have a blessed 2016.
