Artists at work

There was a bit of scrapbooking action here last weekend. Ruby and Max have found their mojo. They proved they really are dedicated artists by spending hours rifling through mummy's photos and precious supplies in search of the most perfect, most glittery, most sparkly adornments. It was worth the drama.

Both children have shown great interest in glitter. Ruby has created a new technique called "lipgloss on a page" and has a penchant for butterflies while Max's specialty technique is cutting butterflies in half to edge the page. Beautiful work.

On this cold, wet and windy day - there are sure to be more beautiful creations coming soon.

peace and love

A bit of this and a bit of that

We had a very quiet and lazy weekend, but we did a bit of this:

and a bit of that:

As you do ;)

Our quiet weekend was a treat. Maybe we should plan more of them. Who knows what other beautiful creatures might visit.

peace and love

On this day

I've been looking through lots of old photos today. I found this little treasure from 20 May 2005. We were in Sydney to meet up with lots of other families we had come to know and love from an online parenting forum. I'm pretty sure Ruby and Max were the most beautiful kids there ;)

lots of love

A good list

I love lists. I've received this one 3 times this week, so I thought the universe was sending me a message to read it and pay attention. It's a good strong list. Love it.

ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

FOUR. When you say, 'I love you,' mean it.

FIVE. When you say, 'I'm sorry,' look the person in the eye..

SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.

EIGHT.. Never laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much.

NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely..

TEN... In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

ELEVEN.. Don't judge people by their relatives.

TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly.

THIRTEEN! ... When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, 'Why do you want to know?'

FOURTEEN.. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

FIFTEEN.. Say 'bless you' when you hear someone sneeze.

SIXTEEN. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

EIGHTEEN. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

NINETEEN. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

TWENTY- ONE. Spend some time alone.

A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.

Been lots happening here. Promise to post something more meaningful sometime soon.
