This is a link to last Friday's NBN Sports report on the news. Matt swam at NSW State Age Championships on the weekend. He swam in 6 individual events and 2 relays. He pb'd in 5 events and got his first State Age medal in the 17/18yrs 200m Fly - he came 3rd. This was a great lead up to the start of his HSC trials this week.

Matt's Yr 12 Timber major work (cont)

Between coats of lacquer, there were more moments of relief.....and moments of loud music and Matt singing an "Adelle" song into his paint brush, at the top of his lungs!! Poor neighbours.

Completion! 4 coats of lacquer and sanding back, major work is completed.

An extremely happy and relieved young man, now it is just a matter of printing out his 80 page portfolio that goes with the major work. Then he'll be ready to face next week with the HSC trials

Year 12 Major Work - Timber

Legs going onto the carcas of the tallboy.

Top now attached to the tallboy and Matt feeling sheer relief that the project is nearing completion.

Back soon with some final photos.

Crazy for Cupcakes & Fox & Friends - 18th

"Crazy for Cupcakes" is a set that is being carried over to the new catalogue. I don't own it, yet!! I stamped some images off from my sister who owns it. I was asked to make an 18th birthday card by a work colleague. Her request was something with "foxes and wolves, she's not a girly girl!" OMG!! I thought where do I start with that one. Funnily enough I came up with Crazy for Cupcakes!! not sure why but I thought every girl likes cupcakes whether they're girly or not!! After rethinking this plan I decided the only fox stamp I could come up with was from "Fox & Friends" so I also made an easel card. It will be interesting to see which one my work colleague chooses.

Pocket Silhouettes

I am sooooooooooooo glad Pocket Silhouettes is staying for the new catalogue. It is one of my favourites. Here are 2 very simple cards made using this set simply layered on to Vintage Vogue embossed cardstock and Framed tulips embossed cardstock.

August Stamp-a-Stack

These are the cards we will be making in this month's Stamp-a-Stack. We will be using 2 stamp sets that will be retiring at the end of August. Sense of Time and Friends 24/7. I will be very sad to see these sets go as I love them both. The Sense of Time masculine cards can be made into Birthday cards or Father's Day Cards. The Friends 24/7 cards can be made into Birthday cards or using the quotes from this stamp set can be friendship cards. I have used the "faux fabric" technique on these cards. If you'd like to make 8 cards, 2 of each design then book in to this month's S-A-S on Friday 26th August at 7.30pm. Cost is $20 (cash). Bookings are essential as there is a limit of 8 per class.

"Say Goodbye" Retirement List

Well here it is the "Say Goodbye" retirment list from the 2010/2011 Idea Book & Catalogue.
Have a look through the list, highlight the items in the catalogue that are retiring. If you'd like anything from the list please email me or phone your order through. SU have advised that they will:

* update the "Retired List" each business day by 8:00 AM (AEST) with availability information.
* Because these items can go quickly, we recommend you let your customers know they may not receive all the items they ordered.
* Where possible, ask customers for a substitute item in case the original item is no longer available when you place their order.

Well I suggest you get a coffee, highlighter, your catalogue and sit down and check through the list. :-) enjoy!
