Come on down! 😀
I’ll be sending you an email shortly in order to get your address, and these cute wee Monsters will be winging there way towards you and your family!
I’d like to thank everyone for participating, not just in my raffle, but in all the Auctions and Raffles that went on all over crafty blog land in the last couple of weeks to raise money for the flood victims. It really helps restore ones faith in humanity.
There are good people out there.
*loves you all*
So much has been going on in our happy little household over the past week!
I’ll begin by letting you know that the Raffle has been extended at the request of Toni the organiser in order to let anyone who missed out on the Auction bidding to still have a chance on some of the Raffles. So the Raffle has been extended to midday Wednesday!
A little closer to home the routine for the year has been settling in, and I now walk home from work 3 nights a week, and go running 3 mornings a week. On the day off we head to Sydney Indoor Climbing Gym.
The most uncomfortable shoes I own …
We also managed a trip to the Art Gallery on Wednesday, thanks to their amazing Art After Hours program. It’s such a calming and inspirational place.
Often a little random too!
I have been knitting up a storm and finishing off some hats to match gloves that I made in previous years.
Nothing I can wear yet in the heat, but fun little projects none the less.
I hope your weeks are being productive and inspiring!
You know what I like about socks? They travel anywhere.
These ones remind me of vibrant hibiscus flowers and thus seem very tropical to me. I feel like I should have my knitting in one hand and a large layered fruity cocktail in the other.
Don’t forget to enter the Raffle for the Monsters!
Such a weekend you never did see! Well, I did, and you might have, if all of your circumstances came together like ours did! You know when you see a stuffed life sized tiger in a white hearse that you’re in for something a little different!
We had an Adventure all planned out, and at the last minute decided that this really may not be the perfect weekend for that particular Adventure. The weather was not cooperating with us.
So we decided to go play tourist instead by purchasing some tickets to the Sydney Aquarium with some left over holiday money we had.
We got there about lunch time, and there were queues, and we were dispirited, so we decided to find food, re-group, and come up with a new plan. We re-grouped here;
Such a steak you never did eat before! So tender, so juicy, so LARGE!
Three hours later, the queues to get into the Aquarium had mysteriously vanished, so we thought we’d try our luck!
We saw Dory
and Bruce’s cousins …
And a MERMAID!
*cough* I mean, Dugong of course!
Such an amazing day! We had so much fun! We’ll definitely be going back!
Now don’t forget the Raffle to raise money for the QLD flood relief is still going but ends next Monday, 24th, at 9am. If you have yet to enter Just head to this post and follow the directions. The clean up efforts are just monumental, and every little bit helps.
Something a little different in today’s post.
I am holding a raffle for my Monsters. You remember them …
They love you and want to live at your house! They also want to help people like this,
The rules are simple –
The Raffle starts now.
An entry in the raffle is going to cost you $5 paid directly to the Flood Relief Appeal. (If you can afford more than $5, please think about making a more significant donation.)
On that site you can make an online donation, and once you are done you will get a receipt number.
You then need to stop over here, and leave a comment with your receipt number and email address and you will be entered. It’s that simple.
The Raffle must end on Monday 24th at 9am.
At the close of the Raffle, I will contact the winner and the Monsters will be winging their way to one lucky person. I will cover postage anywhere in the world.
If my prize doesn’t interest you , there will be raffles, auctions and sales popping up all over blogland – Just pop on over to Make It Perfect blog on Friday when the master list will be up.
Please help. Please spread the word.
