the Leukaemia Foundation World's Greatest Shave

... or in our case the World's Greatest Hair Colouring.

ImageWriter

My gorgeous little girl, Phoebe, has decided to raise money this year for the Leukaemia Foundation by colouring her hair.

She's set up her PROFILE PAGE on the World's Greatest Shave fundraising site, which is now open for sponsorship.

Phoebe asked me to post about her fundraising here on my blog, which I am so happy to do, I hope you will visit her page. You can also leave her a message of encouragement over on her profile page... maybe suggest the colour she should dye her hair, cause she's having trouble deciding at the moment.

Thanks for reading, and thank you from Phoebe.

Hope you have a great weekend.

Maya Road dt blog post & Aussie Cardmaking Stamping & Papercraft magazine

It was my turn to post over on the Maya Road Design Team blog last week. I wrote about a little book I made for Emily's birthday. Lots more photos of the book are on the MR blog.

I was also excited to receive this publication in the mail a few weeks back. I had a set of cards published in Australian Cardmaking Stamping and Papercraft and one of my cards was featured on the cover (Celebrate You - top right). I didn't know this card would be on the cover, so that was an extra little surprise.

Congratulations Jody, I'll be in touch by email to arrange delivery of your newest baking delights!

Thank you to everyone who left me lovely comments. I wish I had enough cupcakes stamps to send to everyone.

Not much to report on creatively-wise. I have a quilt half cut which I'll be making for Emily (currently taking up most of the surface of the kitchen table).

Ribbons Galore has some ribbons perfect for Valentine's Day projects...

Just thought a share a few photos from last weekend.

Phoebe decided to add to her repertoire of sporting activities recently. So along with the athletics, soccer and basketball which currently consume a lot of her spare time, she decided she'd like to compete in a triathlon. We found the Weet-Bix kids TRY-athlon for her to enter which was last weekend out at Homebush. It was such a fantastically organised event with over 2500 kids entered in the Sydney event alone. There were no winners, the kids weren't timed, they were just given the opportunity to try a triathlon.

Has she caught the triathlon bug? Apparently....yes. I'm just applying to have that eighth day added to the week so we can fit it in.

I should also mention that these are not my own photos, they were taken by professionals, Super Sports Images, at the event and we were able to purchase these.

Well that's about all for this week. Happy Friday and I hope you have a great weekend.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
