This is just a quick update to say hi and that I haven't forgotten about this blog. Life has been crazy hectic of late and hopefully it will settle down a little over the next few weeks and I will have a chance to update this blog properly.
For those who don't know I'm doing a 1 year post grad course at uni to become a primary school teacher. Loving it. It is really full on and has left little time for creating or anything else in my life. Keeping up with the classes, readings, assignments, lesson plans, etc has been taking all my time and what little is left has been spent with my Dear Heart and the Princess.
It is now semester break and I have four weeks where no assignments are due ... YAY ... however I will be doing teaching rounds for a week and a half and spending the rest with my mum and the Princess ... oh and trying to clean the sty ... oops house ... hahahahahaha
Today I'm setting some time aside for being creative ... finally.
Chat soon I promise!

So I suppose an explaination is due as to why my Arabian Nights ATC is far from Arabian. When I think Arabian Nights I think belly dancing, which is something I love doing and only wish I didn't look like a floundering beached whale when I do it! The pattern on the serviette I used reminds me of the beading and coins on a belly dancing coin scarf/belt. The image highlights techniques I wish I was better at ... back bends and floor movements ... as well as the incredible beauty and joy of belly dancing.

As you can see from the picture there isn't any water in the lake. It has been mostly dry for a few years now ... gets a little water in winter with the rain but not enough to fill it back up. I must say I am mighty sick of this drought and everything being so dry and dusty ... after 10 years I've had enough. I get fed up with the people who build new houses and immediately landscape their yards ... we are on water restrictions people! Why plant a garden that you aren't allowed to water? I know that weeds and half dead plants don't look that great but I'd rather see them than water hungry non-natives!
Better stop ranting now and go get creative ... ciao

Well that's it for now. I have to sort out my financial woes after watching Oprah today!
Oh well now I'm off to the laundromat as my stupid washing machine is broken again!

This is the cover:
Thanks Connie for the inspiration.
The rules are:
- Link to the person who tagged you (link above)
- Mention the rules (well here they are!)
- Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about yourself (well that cuts out my lion story ... sigh)
- Tag six other bloggers by linking to them (still to do)
- Go to each person's blog and leave a comment that lets then know they've been tagged (obviously this is still to do)
Here are my six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about myself:
- I don't have any pets
- I'm into family history
- I'm easily distracted
- I don't like ice cream
- I love sunday morning sleep-ins
- I'm naturally very messy
Here are the six bloggers I'm tagging: (coming soonish)
