LIght in the heart

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.” Khalil Gibran

Nothing says beaches of northern NSW like Pandanus trees. When I first saw these trees I could not see the beauty in them but now that they are associated with fun filled days on the beach they have a special kind of beauty in a wild and carefree way.

Sky Watch Friday is the same for me, the sky is always there, with lots of different moods that Sky Watch fans from all over find the beauty to share in their photos.

Did you see us on show at the CHA last week? Really enjoying the Tattered Angels range and can't wait to be showing off the newest creations - soon!

Spreading Light

"There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it"  Edith Wharton

Our local beaches were full of sad news this week so we headed inland towards where we used to have a family farm. Have a great weekend and check out Sky Watch Friday for 100s of bloggers view of the sky from all over the place.

Bonne Annee

"Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-fruitful path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb." Sir Winston Churchill

Try Sky Watch Friday for lots of views from all parts of the globe, my view is from a long walk along the river on a changeable day. And the bird - that was just pure luck.

And a recent Altered Book page on the theme of recycled Christmas wrapping.

Happy New Year

Is it 20-10 or 2,000-10 for you? 
What ever you call it hope it is a good one for everyone. New Year’s is a great time for celebrating all that is good in our world. For me it is a recent publication in Scrapbooking Memories (AU) with this project from the Rapt in Paper range.

Finding great inspiration through Susan’s gang of Tablescapers including Sarah of the Beach Cottage who have helped me rethink table d├ęcor. Don’t rush into packing up your holiday decorations, because you might just have another theme reveal itself, as I found here with silver stars for a New Year’s celebration. Recycling can be fun with a little creative thinking.

All these parties reminded me of a few things to add to our bucket list including the Venice’s Carnival season. Finished this little page with lots of glimmer mist for a special touch of pretty. Am really excited to have joined the Tattered Angels design team this year and looking forward to sharing lots of pretty things soon.
