Away In Western Australia

Hi all
I didn't have time to say much before we left but we are on holidays in Western Australia with my Mum and Grants Mum.We are currently at Broome one street back from the gorgeous Cable Beach.I shall show you some pics when we get back Sat or Sunday coming.The weather has been gorgeous and it was great to see the Bungle Bungle's,Tunnel Creek,desert towns and other spots again.I have seen Geikie Gorge,Winjana Gorge and other places for the first time and this is my first time to Broome.Traveling with older ladies has been slow at times but we are getting there.Tomorrow is a camel ride on Cable Beach and sight seeing at Broome and then the next day hope to get to Cape Laveque(?sp).
On a bummer note I accidentally deleted over a hundred comments here GGGrrr as the internet cafe here signed me in a diff way....never mind....I know you know I am here and you know I love getting your comments.Hope all is well with everyone and I hope to get creating soon when I am back home.

Collections houses

These are the houses Annette built LOL.Last year I had a purple faze but it was all because I needed to make an Aubergine house for a group submission to Somerset Studio for the Artyoz group.I got the first house colour wrong by thinking of Aubergine as a Regal colour rather then an eggplant colour so I ended up with two houses.

We used Collections chipboard houses and I used Opals embossing enamels on material as my roof and walls.
All the doors and windows open with hinges to reveal images the window to past hopes and dreams and the window to by gone innocence
and the kiss behind the door

and dance like nobody can see.

The house was accepted and did appear in SS but not sure when that was LOL.Some new mail also came this week in the form of my Leonardo collaborative paper bag book swap return pages.I'll try to get the book made and scan the photos soon between family dramas!!!.My gorgeous 20 yr old Carlia had her NEW Barina rear ended by a 4wheel drive today...poor kid...she is Ok, a bit sore but her car is a right off.

Varifying Things LOL

Sorry folks I have had to put a verification thing on comments due to spam.If you are not a creative person then you are on the wrong blog!!!.Just an update my daughter is now out of hospital and on the mend yeha.Some more metal came for me on Friday....there is an arty thing brewing in my head....when will I set it free and play???.Hopefully in a day or so.Thankyou all for your comments and encouragement about my jewelry attempts and art...I'm learning as I go and stumble in the dark alot.I really need some of the right tools for jewelry like circle punches and mandrels etc.It would be great to make cuffs and stuff using friends loved ones for presents.I also want to try making other animal themed ones too.AAAhhh too many wants and now I am back at work, time is evading me :o).
