30 days of me day 12



So today the question is... How you found out about blogger and why you have one?

Well I've been racking my tiny little brain about this one, and the truth is.. I can't remember how I found out about Blogger! I guess I just followed some links form some of my favourite online people and just discovered it that way!

Hmmm.. And the reason I have a Blogger? Well that's because sometimes I want to say a little bit more than I do on Flickr I guess!

I love flickr..I love being able to take photos of my every day life and keep a track of what I've been up to. I don't travel and I don't go anywhere really exciting but I love the little things I do, I love my hobbies and I love to meet new people online who feel the same way I do about things..



The stuff I love to make comes from my dreams and my imagination.. People say that they wish they could live in my head! Haha you don't! I don't sleep so well at night because my head just doesn't stop..EVER! It's exhausting! But who am I kidding? It's loads of fun too! Anyway I guess what I mean is it all comes from me.. My style, the way I like to live,the things I love, my hopes, my daydreams..They all go into everything I write and make. So having a Blogger allows me to share these things with everyone or anyone that wants to listen to my silly ramblings!

I have nothing to hide any more..My journalling has seen to that! It's my therapy... I have a childlike enthusiasm and energy for life and I just want to find people to come along for the ride...

I want guerrilla fun.. I'm an adventurer of my little world.. I want wishes to come true.. I want magic in the forest!



You still reading? Lets be friends!!

30 days of me day 11

So.... Lindsay and Cuppy! This one's for you!! Hope you love it...And thanks for being my friends ♥♥♥

30 days of me day 10


Songs you listen to when you are happy, sad, bored, hyped, mad....

Well its always an easy one for me because most music will come and go but I always have my favourite band....

The Counting Crows!



The only music I need whatever my mood!

I get a lot of stick for this being my favourite band..But *Blows a raspberry at the haters!* I really believe that music shouldn't be a badge of cool.. It should mean something personal to you. It should be what's in your heart and can take you away from it all!

Every time I see them live I cry! I can't describe how it feels other than he writes those songs for me.. He understands what goes on in my head!

It's almost everything I need!

Today's the day I have to think of something that I'm proud of in the past few days...

30 days of me day 7

Well when you ask me for a picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you... It just has to be

My Noah!



Because there's nothing else that touches the moment I became a Mum!

In fact even before he was born we would have chats... I told him I'd love him forever and that we'd be okay no matter what. Okay so he didn't talk back but he nodded A LOT!!

I can't believe it was 9 years ago.. Gosh time really does fly you know! He's changed so much and so have I. We've changed and learnt together. I see so much of myself in him, the good and the not so good! But I couldn't be more proud!

We're an awesome duo... Haha he's the greatest little sidekick I could have...







Yep...We're kinda crazy! He makes my life complete...



I dedicated this special page in my journal to him...Cherish every moment..Time passes so very fast!

I dream of unicorns...



Doesn't every girl? You see you get pony girls..But I was never one of those. Unicorns were always something much more exciting.. Beautiful glittery mystery mythical beasts! The creatures of fairytales!

Well my love for the wonderful unicorn was rekindled with this little cutie...



I never get sick of hearing her say that! I know I've done it....LOTS!!



Anyway to celebrate my love of the mighty magical unicorn..Here's some cool stuff!

fantastically fluffy unicorn onesie ...



From bangbangcrash

And when cuteness is involved you just know there'll be something at emandsprout

Like this sweet sleep mask..



And super cute hairband



I found these awesome unicorn tee's...



This one from ZambiCandy



And my other ride is a unicorn by theboldbanana



Some super cute cards by isabellsumbrella

And how much do I need this unicorn dress by devaniweaver



A LOT!! That's how much!!

30 days of me day 6

Well today it's time to announce my favourite superhero..

And for me there's only one... I LOVE Tank Girl!



Reasons i love her.... She drives a tank..she's dating a kangaroo and she hangs out with talking stuffed animals...She's too bloody COOL!!!

Tank Girl. Her real name in the strip is Rebecca Buck, but this is very rarely mentioned throughout. According to her own history included as a preface to one of the books, her first words were "cauliflower penis." When she was 7, she started a collection of novelty pencil sharpeners (the collection is now housed in the National Museum of Modern Pencil Sharpeners, Sydney). She later became a tank pilot and worked as a bounty hunter before shooting a heavily decorated officer, having mistaken him for her father, and failing to deliver colostomy bags to President Hogan, the incontinent Head of State in Australia, resulting in him publicly embarrassing himself at a large international trade conference. These events resulted in Tank Girl becoming an outlaw with a multi-million dollar bounty on her head. She is prone to random acts of sex and violence, hair dyeing, flatulence, nose-picking, vomiting, spitting, and more than occasional drunkenness.

She gets to hang out in these circles...

Booga: a mutated kangaroo, formerly quite a successful toy designer of "products Santa would've sacrificed a reindeer for," and presently Tank Girl's devoted boyfriend. She met him when he sneaked into her tank one night to pinch a pair of her knickers. He is a big Dame Edna fan and once impersonated Bill Clinton. Booga, often against his will, always does the cooking, particularly the great British institution of tea. He follows TG everywhere and does, by his own admission, whatever she tells him. This includes murder.

The talking stuffed animals:
Camp Koala: a stitchy, brown, gay, koala-shaped stuffed toy described as "the Jeremy Thorpe of comics", whom TG sodomizes with a hot banana. Camp Koala died tragically when they were playing baseball with live hand grenades which Camp eagerly caught in the outfield, exploding on impact, resulting in a violent, bloody, and gruesome death. After a tearless and comical funeral service, the other characters go to a toy store and buy a new one. Campa Koala is known for visiting occasionally as a guardian angel. He is the only character TG's ever admitted to loving.
Squeaky toy rat: a squeaky toy rat.
Mr. Precocious: a "small Shakespearean mutant" who looks a bit like a mini bipedal pink elephant, though may possibly be a bilby.

Stevie, a wild-haired blond Aborigine who owns a convenience store and chain-smokes. Being TG's ex-boyfriend, Booga is always a bit jealous of him. He has various familial ties and connections with Aboriginal culture and remote traditionalist tribespeople.
Barney: busted out of a mental hospital by TG, she is more or less insane. In The Odyssey, she is responsible for killing the whole cast, thereby sending them all to the land of the dead, from which TG was forced to save them by finding the Prince of Farts.
Sub Girl (real name unknown, although a trading card for the film once listed her real name as 'Subrina'). Described as "like a beautiful flower floating in the loo", she pilots a submarine. A friend of TG's since childhood, she used to come round her house with Jet Girl and try on her mum's underwear.
Jet Girl (real name unknown), a talented mechanic who flies a jet. All her friends call her "boring" (she has admitted to being a big fan of Rod Stewart).
Boat Girl. Otherwise known as Jackie. Barney's nervous hairdresser, former figure skater. Her only brother killed by TG and Booga after they stole from a church. She owns a greatly modified WWII Motor Torpedo Boat.



And in case you're still doubting her super hero abilities...Well she also has the ability to outrun any ice-cream van. Cool huh??

What a difference 30 days makes!

Wow wow wow!! I can't believe that 30 days have passed already! But I guess it's true what they say.. Time flies when you're having fun! I certainly had a lot of that during Janel's 30 day journalling class. So here it is....30 days of journalling!



And look what I've done..I've created a book!

Oh and to add to the whole excitement.. I won one of the "class superlatives" in JFAC class !! I am so so so flattered that anyone voted for ME!!!
Check out my badge for Fan Fave Nominee!!! This badge will go to the journal page that is the class' favorite!! This page's creativity is above and beyond :)



WOWZERS! I am over the moon...This class has been so fantastic! I can't wait for the next! And thanks to anyone who liked my pages and voted for me... I am blushing! ♥

So all that's left to say is you so much Janel. This class has been an amazing experience..I couldn't have asked for more..except maybe some more days! Hah but the new class starts on 13th Sept so I'm getting ready! NOW...I wonder if I can get this book published!??

Candyfloss contradictions... Anyone interested!??

30 days of me day 5

A picture of somewhere you've been to..

Well this one is difficult because I guess I haven't really been anywhere. I've never ever left the UK and haven't really checked this place out properly! I have so many furry friends here that I don't really get to travel but I can think of the perfect place for a picture...

My favourite place..




Kimmeridge. It's beautiful here..Kimmeridge is a small village in the Purbeck district of Dorset, England, situated on the English Channel coast. I used to come here as a child and search the rock pools for sea anenomes. My Dad always looks for cowrie shells..



It's so sweet how we have an ongoing competition to find the first one! He ALWAYS wins! I still love it exactly the same now! It's truly my favourite place...

30 day journal challenge.. The last few days!

Well I can't believe that 30 days have gone by so fast! But I guess it's true what they say.. Time flies when you're having FUN!! And I've certainly been having lots and lots of that!

So here you are...The last few days..

Day 26... The prompt...What are some lessons you have learned through this journal class? Have you grown as a person? Have you grown in your journalling?

Journalling has helped me more than you could ever imagine! I will do this forever!!



Day 27... The prompt.. Today I want you to create your journal page using a different medium than what you are used to using :) Search your studio/craft spaces and challenge yourself to try something new!!

Well for me it had to be paint! Because out of all the different mediums it's the one I am least confident with!!



Day 28...The prompt... Today I want you to start thinking about goals for September! Five goals that are completely do-able!

Ok so I did 10! But I can do these NO PROBLEM!!!



Day 29...The prompt...Should you be doing something different right now? why or why not.

I should be making plans and dreaming BIG!!



Day 30...The prompt...Today's prompt is to write a closing statement to your journal. Whether this is the last page of your journal or the end of this "JFAC" chapter, how do you wish to end it. It can be a congratulatory page to yourself, it can be a thank you to someone in the class who has done something above and beyond with encouraging words, or it can be a simple statement!

I drew me and Janel because I think she's amazing giving us this wonderful opportunity. I want to give hug a massive hug and go for a milkshake with her!

The other bit is a letter to Janel to express how grateful I am for this wonderful creative experience and to say a BIG THANK YOU!!!!






This has been the most amazing experience! Thank you so much Janel...I'm so ready for the next class on 13th September.. Sign up for your spot here and join in all the fun!!!

A habit you wish you didn't have...



Well this one's easy! I bite my nails like a masochist!

I've bitten my nails all my life..Tried to stop a hundred times but no luck! My Nan bit hers like crazy too!



I want to love my hands more.. I'm embarrassed by them. I'll never ever be a hand model! Yes this is a habit I wish I didn't have!
