DYLAN HARTUNG FUNDRAISER & OTHER NEWS

Wow!!! What a fantastic day I had on Saturday. I take my hat off to Jody White who did an amazing job of organising the event and who even managed to reach her goal of raising $10,000. It was great to catch up with the Scrap Pile girls (old friends and new) and although I only managed to complete two LO's in the seven hours I was there, it was well worth it. Dylan's dad was there and just hearing him speak about his adorable little boy, brought tears to my eyes. It also made me realise just how 'normal' a family they are and that none of us are immune to something like this happening in our families. Although the day was a huge success, the money raised only helps for so long, and still more money is needed. Please go and check out Jody's blog and if there is anything that you can do to help, just let her know.

In other news...we had a pretty full on weekend just gone. Isn't it always the way? You have nothing on for ages and then all of a sudden you need to be in a million different places at once. After driving down to Frankston North on Saturday I then had to come back to Coburg to pick the girls up from Mum and Dad's, come home and quickly get changed and then head out to a 21st in Wallan. Talk about driving half way around the world.

Yesterday I managed to recuperate, even with four kids in the house LOL I was looking after Jess' two boys yesterday and they were perfect ALL day. Ethan is the same age as Caitlin so the two of them headed outside and other than asking for lunch and a drink, we never saw them. Angus was happy to just plod around and then when he looked a little tired I set up the port-a-cot, put him down and didn't hear another thing for almost 2 and a half hours! Jess those gorgeous boys of yours are welcome here any time!

I can't believe that Paperific is here already...Where have the last eight weeks gone? If anyone is planning on heading in to Paperific this coming weekend I will be working at the Scrapanalia stand all three days so make sure you come by and say hello and have a look at all the yummy products that Jess will have there. There will also be some great 'surprises' so come and check it out.

Lastly, a big thankyou to everyone who left comments here, emailed me or phoned, to congratulate me on becoming a Lime Tart. I'm still pinching myself and looking forward to my first kit arriving in the next couple of days. Wait till you see it, it is just divine! As soon as I have had a play I will post a few sneak peaks and then you can head over to the November gallery and check out what my fellow talented 'Tarts' have created.

Hope everyone has a great week!
