Busy, Busy Post!


It's busy, busy busy this post! Lots to tell and show! I'm really early posting today..but that's an other story!

First off - Guess what..I'm not famous, infamous!! Corline of Mommy and Me Boutique has done a Personality Profile on me..yes, I do have one--I think!! I hope I don't stop her blog traffic! It even has a photograph of yours truly with the lovely Miss Lilly. Make the most of the picture girls if you check it out...there are not many showing me in existence, lol! My place is firmly behind the camera lens....Helen of Troy's face launched a thousand ships, mine looks like the bottle they smashed after the launch, lol!! So camera's and I do not mix. I went to the page and thought "that's Lilly..who's that with her?". I can be so stupid...sometimes my brain was me sent Corline the photo!! It was just so strange to see me!! But the lovely Miss Lilly is looking good as usual. When the photo was taken we were having a little chat about my watch..she wanted it and I was explaining she had to be five to get one. She wasn't too impressed by that, that girl thinks she's ready now. My daughter did a crafty and sneaked up on us..two clicks and then she ran! It takes a brave person to photograph me..or a fast runner!!

Now for the freebie, today is a Personal and CU OK one. It's a fun "Make your own doodle flower". In the zip you get the sample flowers, psd files of each doodle flower plus a psd with all the "bits". Just for luck you get the doodle flowers and all the parts in png format too. So have a play and make a flower!! You can make doodles, apply styles or even use them to cutout paper shapes..experiment and have fun!!

Thanks for the flower training kit. The write up was great. It makes me feel that I know you more personally. Treasure the photos that people take of you with the little ones. I too am usually behind the lens snapping away like crazy. However, if though I never like the ones with me in them, they are memories of my time with the kids. And now when I look back at my youth, I am so happy when I find a picture of my Mom or Dad with us kids.

Thanks for the goodies, June!
And that picture of you and Miss Lilly is adorable! She is indeed beautiful, but I disagree on YOUR opinion of how photogenic you are (or aren't). I think you look FINE! I love having a face to go with a name that I see in my blog visits :-).

That was a great profile she did of you. The picture is awesome. Love the Make Your Own Flower Freebie. TY :)

Thank you for the award!!

Thank you for the cute doodle flowers! I love your doodles!!!

I read your profile and especially enjoyed this line, "...because deep down I've learn to quite like me...just as I am." My wish for you is that some day you will be able to apply that to how you view yourself physically also. You are not an unattractive person, but speak about yourself as if you think you are. I hope that you will be able to overcome your aversion to your appearance one day - it will make you immeasurably happier once you can... I know, I have struggled with the exact same thing (hating my photos and saying negative things about my appearance) for most of my life... I am only now beginning to learn to stop that behaviour and have found that it produces a much more peaceful existance. Those are beautiful words, June, and they apply not only to who we are inside but to who we are outside as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us, it was very enjoyable!

And thanks again for these adorable little doodle flowers!

Thankyou for the lovely doodle flowers....can't wait to have a play with them.
Been over and read your profile and that photo of you with Miss Lily is just too precious. You take a great photo, but who am I to talk, I feel exactly the same way.....hate hate having my photo taken.....I think that's why I took up this scrapbooking thing.....I get to take the photos.
