what little boys are made of

I found this rhyme on pinterest and thought it was so cute!
then i remembered one from years back so here it is also.

When G"d made little boys
He made them out of string
He found he had too much so He left a little thing

When G"d made little girls
He made them out of lace
He found he had too little so He left a little space

hope this gives you a little chuckle

SA crafters looking to get away

I met an amazing lady the other day, she informas me that they do weekends away for crafters in SA.  I couldnt believe i hadnt heard about this.
Well they have a weekend planned for the 1st and 2nd of September, go check it out here
If that doesn't suit you, they are also doing a retreat to Clarens soon.
I just thought what an amazing idea for one to meet fellow paper crafters and get to play in a tranquil enviroment.

TOMIC #56 dt

Hi there bloggy friends, we have a new challenge on TOMIC, for "At the beach" with the addition of shells, they can be stamped or used as an embellishment.
I gotta tell you since i havent been well for the last few months i think my mojo has up and left me too, while i am trying to get better.

A close up of the images

And a look at the design elements
Products used:
copics for coloring, images stampes with memento
punches and dies:  Tag(magnolia doohickey), ek success punch that i managed to break while using it,
ribbons gauze and lace from the never ending stash
shells found at the beach and the moss from one of the local florists that i have had for a while
Stamps:  sentiment is one of those that we all find in the strangest places with no manufacturers details,
               Offshore Tilda, Sailor Edwin with telescope, and sea background
hopefully i will be back soon with more to share pls just be patient as life happens while we all think we have loads of time.

SNOW!!!! in Africa

it has been snowing all day
it started off as a light dusting and then it came down like a blizzard

hope this keeps up all night and we wake up tomorrow morning to a white world.
already told my kids no school tomorrow if its snowing, bring on the snow, yeeeeha!!!!!

this whole day has been just magical to me having grown up in SA what are the odds that i would ever encounter snow, and for my kids i think this may be a once in a lifetime phenomenon, why not enjoy it while we can i say.
