My "Life is a Journey" Project is done. Just a few final touches here and there, but what a journey, I am as drunk as a duck from a middle ear infection that left me in emergency unit on Saturday morning (thought i was dying). Renice and Wian followed with antibiotics with middle ear infection, and it is only Thursday morning.
Marie Labuschagne will be teaching the project in the Drakensberg the weekend of the 5th of March and the packs are being pack for a wonderful weekend, of nature at is best and food for the soul. Just so you can see I did work.
Fly your dreams!!!!!!!!!!!!
I battle to work in the summer or as we call it the "na somer" after summer it is too hot and too humid. I drag myself form this job to the next and only start to function after eight in the evening when it is cooler.
What I love about the after summer is Valentines day, just a reminder that there is still love in the air and with Renice being a teenager it is just so much more fun.
I have another Make and Take on the 2nd of March and the same one on the 23 March and I could not resist a pocket of envelopes for all your love letters and old Valentine cards.
All the products for this project is from 7 Gypsies.

We are all back to normal again, the Photo Carousel was a great success. All the Christmas goodies are nearly done will start posting on Monday, in the mean time Benice and friends made this stunning Christmas ATC carousel they were inspired by Sande Krieger from the Seven Gypsie site
Val, Ilse,Claudene this is beautiful.
Once again I came back enriched with so much things that people share on a scrap day. The thanks must go to all at Paper Crazy. The scrapping was hectic even the very organized scrappers lost their way from time to time.The food was as good as the scrapping
Fly your dreams
We are so blessed with such good friends and all the family, we really had such a beautiful year and the last class for the year went well and such beautiful pages were created. I have promised to put more detail of the photo carousel on the blog so the girls can finish theirs and the girl that want to still make it are most welcome.
Goodness this is enough for one day. Enjoy and make more memories to scrap tomorrow and the day after and the day after. Most of my photos are old and ugly but the memories are so good I can smell them
Fly your dreams
This is such a weak cliche, Can you believe how the year has gone by? Yes, the year has gone fast but I am always so grateful for time that flies, because that means things are good and we are having fun, because in bad times and times of hardship time drags on and on and on.
Times is also a great healer of pain and we have had lots of it the past year and therefore we thank God for time.
A great friend of us Thea Burger always exhibits her beautiful painting with us on the make and take week at the end of the year and if all this art and beauty cannot inspire you best you give up on the inspiration thing.
The make and takes are always such a wonderful experience and honor to share a hobby with friends at a end of a year to say thank you and to know that what you have made will be a part of their lives maybe forever.
This days cannot be special without special people and my mom is so special she makes all the eats for these days and mom is not well and yet she still does all this and more.
On this Thanksgiving Day we would like to be thankful for family and friends and people that share our passion with us.
I have this thing that I would like to shout out to the world. This is not fair. After years and years of knowing something is not right and always putting it down to adoption or other things( bad parenting )we have found out that our daughter has Asperger Syndrome and I am still struggling with the idea and trying to understand as to how this is going to change our lives. I feel guilty for all the things I have done because I didn't understand. I have a beautiful daughter and I will give my life to change things but I can't. So my carousel is a circle of love and encompassment of family and the love we have for one another. Paula when you designed this photo carousel was it part of your thoughts, a circle of life, a circle of love, a family circle.
So at last the recipe book is done. There is space for 55 recipes (well it is actually a kitchen journal.)
The recipe book will need recipes and labels form the products that you and your family love most. The recipes that are used on special occasions. The restaurants that you eat out when you are to tired to cook.. I also included a page for family table prayers as each of the brothers and sisters in our family a different prayer is said before a meal, My father in law still says grace in Dutch and I would like my kids to know this prayer.
I will be teaching this book in October and it will include the tea towel with buttons and flowers. It will be nice if ever one could bring a well used tea towel so much more character.
I'll fill the recipe book once I've taught it, as I always lone it out and would hate to loose it once it is filled.
Fly Your Dreams
I sewn an old fork to the outside of the recipe book, was an odd set from my grandmothers.
And so we come to the last of the canvasses ,DREAM, and of all of them I liked this one the most. I am not a dream interpretor or any of those things, I think my upbringing was to staunch protestant Gerformeerd, but dreams and angels and crystals have always fascinated me. Dreams are very powerful stuff as daydreaming can take you in to worlds of dragons and monsters and color and what ever you want to. I think in pictures, so 90% of my life is like dreaming. To get back to reality, here is the last of the series.Altering something was also the challange of the week with Artzygirls so this was a dream come true to have a altered book canvas to place on their site.
Man I love my job. Fly your Dreams
These mixed media canvasses gives one such freedom. Nothing has to be acid free nothing has to match ... IT JUST IS. I have a very good friend and she taught me the art TO BE. I must say initially it was a big exercise you have to sit still close your eyes and your mind is not allowed to wonder if it does you must let go of that thought and just be where you are. It is very relaxing and you should be able to do this for at least 20 min I only managed 3 minutes but the more you do it the longer you can stay focused on just be where you are.
I do have the same kind of relaxation with making canvasses just DO !!!!!
Fly Your Dreams!!!
Finalllyyyy. All the ATC classes has been a great success. The ladies enjoyed very minute of it to the extend that I will be teaching a new set of 30 cards (all new techniques) in October.
7 Gypsies brought out a whole new range of ATC cards and embellishments and those will be used in the October classes. There is a load of stuff from Artchix on the new cards and just to wet your appetite we will add a few cards from time to time.
The ATC holder can take up to 80 ATC cards.
Fly your dreams!!!
I am working on 5 projects at a time and it doesn't even frustrate me one little bit. I can read 3 books at a time. Think it's got something to do with your left or right brain I'm not so sure, which side.
I bought the screen along time ago and wanted to do something with it, when we moved Paper Crazy around I had the perfect opportunity to make my screen.
I LOVE MY JOB
I had such a great afternoon with Jacki from Scrappin Times all the blogs she reads and info she has is quite amazing. This made me realize that if we as scrapper do not share our knowledge and expertize this industry WILL die and it will be just another hobby and craft that once was.
On a more positive note I'm working on a 7 Gypsies book called Count, and I'm doing specially for the ladies in the Cape and will be tough by Irene. I just love the colors and techniques and like to give a sneak preview of the book.
and just to proof it here I am working in my very neat studio.
Fly Your Dreams
There are things in life that give me a warm feeling, good quality french lace, and embroidery floss and old pictures and buttons and old velvet flowers and the smell of old books.
This page was one of the things that gives me a warm feeling, like tucking your kids in at night, you could feel those little bodies warm and cheeks glowing, maybe that is what this photo was about a mom like all the rest of us with kids that could have died in a war, became doctors. I love old photos
Fly your dreams !!!!!
Who's idea was this anyway? I can just see Paula and Debbie killing themselves with laughter when we told them we were giving an ATC class.
We packed 1000 packs, poor Dingaan is finished.
Every little card has 3 brads two little 7 Gypsies mini clips and little piece of ribbon and a quarter card stock and 1 transparency and so we go on and on and on.
The stamps are amazing all from Stampers Anonymous and Niki Zipp's private collection.
The ATC are all 7Gypsies and stunning. My ATC's were all techniques from the art world more Mix Media .
I must thank my sister Taan again she has a gift for bringing the most beautiful product in.Thanks Taan.
