and I cherish every second of it..for it wont be long before they are off in the real world ..by themselves..
My beautiful 11 year old is not only as tall as me now, and wearing her Mums' clothes and shoes...but now..she is loving playing in Mums' kitchen.
This morning..I woke to this:
Its called "A country brekky"..and Miss M got the recipe from one of her girls' magazines...Its ham, laid in a muffin tin, an egg cracked on top and baked in the oven at 360 degrees for 20 minutes, topped with her own handmade salsa....
perhaps she will be a chef??...I love that she likes to cook. I love it too..I find it a really relaxing thing to do....and i LOVE that she already is a wizz in the kitchen...
Thank you Miss M...so..whats for lunch??XXMamaXX

I am a lucky, lucky chicken.....smiling all over my face I am..because??
I have been asked to be this months' Guest Designer for Tarisota Collections!!!!
I was so excited when Tamar asked me..I took all of about 2.5 seconds to say yes!!!
This months collection is called "Paperie" very much inspired by old books...*sigh* ..sooo very up my alley...so Ive been breathing in all the yummy goodness of the pack..and I will share as soon as Im able..but if youre not on the Tarisota Newsletter list yet..dang it!! You so have to!!
Honestly, Tamar has a true talent for putting these collections together.. Im in LOVE with them!!
I am so honoured to have been asked...so very very honoured..I cant tell you how much.....Not in words..
Cause these kits are not just about the paper and stickers..no no no..so much more..so much that screams play with me!!!..and fits my passion for Mixed media so well......
*sigh* so happy:)
Now for the bad news...(well, sort of):
I am supposed to be at work..snippy snippy today...but alas, no..
It would seem that when one is chasing after a hormonally on heat pug who thinks her name is Bikky..not Gypsy so therefore does not answer to her name when called..(ahem) through the fence into next doors' overgrown, unkempt bushland acreage, ..I have discovered these things...
1. Just call her Bikky, dammit.She might come then.
2. While severely reprimanding said Pug while hurriedly rushing to get back through the fence..it would be a good idea to pay a little more attention to where you put your feet.
3.I do not know how to fall gracefully...wearing thistles in my hair and dirt up my nostrils...not a good look.
4. Hearing a loud crack as one falls onto her face is not a good thing....
5. The *F* bomb..screamed quite loudly over and over does not stop pain..but it sure helps.
This morning my hubby had to rush me into the hospital in much pain...wearing a soccerball on the side of my ankle. Thought I had broken it for sure....
but thankfully, after a few x rays and some seriously lovely pain relievers, a visit from a very funny Doctor, and then a Physio ...I have been strapped, hobbling about on crutches and nursing a very bad sprain.
So I guess its sort of good news....No broken bones "that they could see" the radiologist person has yet to go over the Xrays..but theyre pretty happy its just sprained.(PHEW!! I SAY!!)
On the upside..Im going to play with My Tarisota kit some more now..because I do not cope well with "resting" aaaargh!!!..
Oh!!! I almost forgot!!!
Ok...so I have a new fascination...Blythe...well, I guess its more of a rekindled old fascination....but I bought a Blythe doll about amonth and a half ago...she was wearing a purple catsuit,pigtails and olive green make-up...(eeew!!).
I have customed her a bit...and renamed her Piper.( A name I always loved!!!)
I have removed all her make-up, and reapplies dark eye make-up, chiselled out her mouth and repainted it, gave her a haircut..and a wardrobe make-over. She is my little goth Piper girl....and now?? Im saving for her sister...LOL..or should I say..one of her sisters......LOL....
See? here she is with her good friends Elliot(the blonde babe with the cool Queenie beanie on) and Gigi..(the mischevious red head...)
Of course, My Hubby thinks I am going insane..but hey??? What the hell?? I never played with dollies when i was a little-un..and i am fascinated with these big eyed beauties...so WTFN???
LOL....Have a great day....Im off to sleepy byes..drugs are making me sleeeeepy. Maybe Tarisota play after a nap.....yes...good idea....LOL....Debxxoo
