and now that I have admitted that, you can all stop emailing me to remind me that it has been over a month since I last posted and that I need to update LOL

Things have been crazy hectic around here and I have soooo much to talk about...where do I start?

Last weekend I was lucky enough to attend the Scrapanalia Retreat at The Country Place, Kalorama, int the Dandenong Mountains. The venue was absolutely divine and on several occasions over the weekend the thought of never leaving did cross my mind. Having beautiful meals cooked for you, a serviette placed on your lap and somebody else doing the dishes and making the beds has an amazing way of rejuvenating the soul. I didn't get a lot done (ok 2 LO's, although one of them was a double) but being able to catch up with friends and make so many more far outweighed the whole scrapping thing. We had such a great group of women attend and it was nice that we all mingled together and made the effort to get to know one another. I have some photos to upload and will get on to that ASAP.

On Monday I attended the Making Memories Trade class at Quest Apartments in Richmond. Having had only a couple of hours sleep withing the four days leading up to it, I can't believe I actually managed to get through it. It was a great day and as soon as I finish my album I will upload some pics for all of you to see. I have to say a big thank you to Nicole and Emilie from Simply Scrapbooking in Eltham, who were great company and forgave me for my lack of brain power. I also bumped into an old friend that I hadn't seen in nearly six years. I had no idea that she scrapped, let alone that she owned her own online ribbon store. Simone's ribbons are reasonably priced and she has so new ribbons arriving from Malaysia soon, so head over to the Ribbon Palace website and check it out.

On Monday we also had Ebony's final X-rays and I am happy to report that she has the all clear. Thank you to everyone who has sent good vibes her way since the accident in December, it obviously had the right effect. The vets has also featured Eb in their February newsletter, so that was a little exciting for us. Check it out here.

I think that will do for one day. I'll be back to upload some photos and fill you in on everything else within the next couple of days...I promise.

Jess is right, you are an angel! Hey, it's what your name means anyway isn't it, so your parents named you well :)

Glad your mm day went well. Love to see your work when you are done. Eb's story made me cry! Poor darling.

I posted your CD yesterday afternoon. You should get it Tuesday with the public holiday on Monday.
