Some exciting news and a few more shares...

Hi everyone!
Hope you're all well and staying dry. OMG this rain!! I'm so over it!
I know some people really need it but seriously, I feel like I should be building an ark!

At least the rain has kept me indoors and of course that only means one thing...playing in my studio. Now I have it set up full time with all my lovely goodies right by my side I'm finding it so much easier to get things done. So while everyone is inside watching TV or playing game consoles I'm happily sitting down the back with the radio on creating. Bliss!!

Today I have a couple of shares and a little bit of exciting news.
First of all, I've decided to jump on the 52 Week band wagon and scrap a page a week of our lives. (Hoping it's something I can stick to and keep up with)
I think it's an awesome way to put together a year in review album. I've also decided to scrap these pages in a different size for ease and want to try and keep them plain and simple.
So here's Week 1:

Week 1 we were on holidays in Tottenham,which is in Central NSW. Absolutely gorgeous place and I could easily see myself living there. Amazing sunsets, sunrises and scenery 24/7...just perfect.

Secondly, I've done the February Scrap the Boys challenge which was a sketch this month.
I scrapped these photos of my son meeting one of his idols, Greg Bloom. Greg is one of the Bloom brothers known for pig hunting which Jye just loves. They produce DVD's and Xmas 2010 I ordered one for him. The guys don't live far from us so I secretly organised for Greg to meet us and deliver it personally. The hardest part was getting Jye to come for the drive as he had no idea what was going on. It all went to plan though and the look on his face when Greg walked over was priceless! Bit of trivia here: we lived next door to the boys father for years in our last house but my boys were only young then and weren't into hunting or anything then. Small world huh?

Last but not least, after much deliberation, sleepless nights and daydreaming, I've decided to open my own little Facebook shop.
I've closed my studio to photography at this stage and I'm only doing location shoots for now. I just found that with the constant pain I'm in and the small studio space I have I just couldn't get around in there freely to photograph. It was a big decision to make as I really love my little studio but until I get better I'll just stick to location shoots.
So...what to do with the studio? Well over the past few months I've been scrapping like mad and making a general mess and bit by bit my stash has made it's way into the studio. As I said before, having everything right at my finger tips again has made it so much easier to get things completed so of course I decided to use this to my advantage.
So...Denim and Lace was born!

The page was only launched last night for a sneaky peek but I've been working madly on getting products made and ready for sale.
I'd love it if you come on over and liked the's a link:

I've already had a little play with some of the denim flower embellishments I've made and used them on this months Stuck? sketch challenge:

Hope you like this little sneaky peek.
Well I best be off I have lots to do,
Until next post,
