Well, things are hotting up.  Goose and chook sheds all cleaned up and freshly strawed.  Geese are in full mating mode so they will be nesting soon.  The house should go on the market next week so I hope nobody buys it for a few months because the geese will need time to hatch their eggs.  I suppose anyone who buys our property will like some geese anyway and they have all been born here.  Ducks are laying well and they will probably want to sit on some eggs as well - though they are not very dedicated mothers like the geese and the bantams.  I have had some time to play because the weather has been dreadful but at least the dam is filling up.  I love winter.

And a couple more...

Love these dragonfly stamps by Stamp-It.

Well, life with chooks is in the end phase.  We are putting our property on the market and moving into town.  Truth is, we are just getting to old to maintain everything so downsizing is the word of the moment.  Not much time to craft but a couple of things.
Love these Dina Wakely stamps.
I really like the Simon Says Stamps Flowers and dies in the set, but I don't have it so I die cut the circles, coloured them with distress ink and same with the stems and leaves.  Could be worse - now for a sentiment....
Our neighbors have a new baby, a girl after two boys so she will be much loved.  This is to go with her present.

I am doing an online Watercolour for Card Makers class.  This is the technique using a wet acrylic block as a frame for an image.  Different from the class but it looks good.

 For Sarah Hemphill
For Sue Carrington

These are my ICADs as a work in progress.  Unfortunately the photos of the finished products didn't turn out and I had added some metal stuff and mounted them on card, but the I know Sarah liked hers and I haven't heard from Sue.  I tried to make them a little bit of my life and a little bit of Australia.  Thanks again Ingrid for the great challenge.
