Deary, deary me!!! Where did the last month go????

Hello out there to anyone who is still checking my blog. I wouldn't be surprised if there is no one left checking in. And can I blame you??? It has been a month and a day since I last posted anything. I really can't believe it has been that long. Really, where does the time go???? I was told last night, by some special friends (***Hi Ali and Tanya***) That they have stopped checking my blog because I never post anymore- so here I am girls- a post for you!!! I won't make any promises like I did in my last couple of posts or any excuses (I have been very busy and had a very sick little boy though- hahaha) but I will try - I really will- to blog some more because I am creating just not posting.

So last night I held my first workshop since the beginning of December- in fact only my 3rd workshop EVER and it was so much fun!!! Thank you Ali for hosting it for me. I tried out some new things and I think it went really well. And as an added bonus the very, very, super talented Tanya Tahir (see her blog HERE) who was a guest at the workshop is now going to be part of my monthly stamp club. Yay Tanya!!!!

I'm not going to show you in this post what we made last night even though they are super cute because I think I may be going to make another 40 of them (yes that's right FORTY) to take with me, along with 40 cards, to swap at the Stampin Up! Convention in Sydney next week. Oh I haven't mentioned yet - I AM GOING TO THE SU CONVENTION IN SYDNEY NEXT WEEK!!!! I am super excited can you tell!!!????!!!

So I won't show you those things until I make my mind up but I will show you a few things that I have made in the last week or so using all my new goodies from the Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue. Here they are:

Happy Moments SS (now retired) & Family Phrases SS
Rich Razzleberry & Old Olive Ink
Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive & Whisper White Cardstock
Cottage Wall DSP
Rich Razzleberry Polka-Dot Ribbon; Corner Rounder Punch; Word Window Punch; Blender Pens

Happy Moments SS (retired)
Melon Mambo Ink
Melon Mambo; Pink Pirouette & Whisper White Cardstock
2 Step Bird Punch (Love, Love, Love It!!!); Melon Mambo Polka Dot Ribbon; Word Window Punch; Scallop Edge Punch; Paper Piercer; Pearls (non-SU)

Framed with Love SS (retired); Family Phrases SS
Rich Razzleberry Ink
Rich Razzleberry & Orchid Opulence Cardstock
Cottage Wall DSP
2 Step Bird Punch; Rich Razzleberry Polka-Dot Ribbon; Designer Button

Well that's all for me tonight. Off to bed- crossing everything that my little one will wake up feeling better in the morning (tonsillitis, croup and a cold in the space of 8 days is no fun for anyone).

Looking forward to showing you some cards that show off my new found love affair with paper flowers tomorrow.

Nighty night x
