Something for the mums

So who out there is thinking that their mum would LOVE something hand made for Mothers Day? I have seen all the beautiful classes and I just know there will be more than one thing your Mum or Nan would love. I am really looking forward to putting some if not all of this gifts together myself.

Here is the blurb straight from the @home site.

We were thrilled with the response to our recent @Home Support Team search and narrowed our choice down to FIFTEEN finalists. As part of our stage two of the competition, our Top 15 girls had to come up with a quick, easy and fresh gift idea suitable for Mother's Day! And we were blown away by the brilliant ideas and great projects they designed!

Now that our search has ended and we welcome Sheree Forcier and Lisa Pate to our Support Team, we decided that we wanted to share the Top 15 girls' ideas with our @Home participants. Soooo, we have put together this new class featuring 14 of our 15 finalists PLUS members of our Support Team as we share ideas, projects and step by step instructions. Plus we have a few giveaways.

They join our Support Team girls as we present a glorious selection of Mother's Day projects. Make sure you take advantage of our Early Bird Price!!! Offer expires 30 April 2010.

Hope to see some of you there :)

Happy Happy

Yep, that's me!  I am so excited to say that I am now a very proud member of the Kim Archers Workshops @Home team.  I am still pinching myself.  The competition was amazing, everyone who made the top 15 were and are seriously talented ladies.  I was chuffed just to make it that far...... but to become part of the team is just so COOL.  I have long been a fan of Kim's unique style and the girls on the team have been so wonderful and welcoming..... like I said just so so COOL!!!

And Kim made sure we were put straight to work :)  I loved that.  I can only show you a little sneak peak, but I will let you know that I had lots of fun putting it all together.

and in other exciting news .......

I am back studying :)  I feel so blessed to be finally doing something I LOVE.  I am doing an Advanced Diploma in Commercial Arts (Interior Design) and I am really enjoying it all.  So the plan will be Justin has his Vines in the Valley and I will have my office in Newcastle (I am planning on Honeysuckle along the restaurant strip!) and it will somehow all work out.

Life is feeling pretty good at the moment, and after such a hard year last year, it is wonderful!

Love Lisa

What our Easter looked like

This is what we were busy doing for Easter and Justin's parents farm.  Collecting eggs (chocolate and chook ones), feeding sheep - Miss Liv seems to be quite the sheep whisperer, loving on Kel the farm dog, working with Pop (also knows as following him around the farm alllll day), playing basketball, painting, drawing and lots more!!

Justin and I were lucky enough to head out to a beautiful town called Nundle about an hour away from the farm on Easter morning (after all the egg chaos of course).  Nundle has a festival every year at Easter celebrating it's history as a Gold Mining town and the Chinese people who came to live and work there.

So together we wandered the beautiful streets, visited all the stalls, and tasted some yummy foods.  We visited the mill and even watched in in action.  My gorgeous hubby bought me the most BEAUTIFUL cashmere cardi while we were there.  I was so blessed.  I had picked it up numerous times and put it back down - even on *sale* it was expensive... but my lovely hubby bought it for me :) 

We had such a lovely time as a family, just relaxing and having fun. Was wonderful.


PS Shame about the mountain of washing I had to bring home!
