Just read this on Scrapbook Studio’s blog and loved it so thought I’d share it…

T’was the night before Christmas, I’m glued to the tree.
I’m wondering what Santa brought just for me.

Could it be cardstock or chipboard or lace?
Or a Cricut, I said, with a smile on my face.

And that’s when I heard him,“Hi Santa, ” I said
“You know….good little girls should be in their beds.

“I know I should Santa, and now I’ve got caught.
But I was just so excited to see what you brought.”

“Well, let’s take a look in this room where you work.
He shook his head quickly, and left with a jerk.

I heard him exclaim as he put it in gear.
“You’ve got enough crap, I’ll see you next year”

too funny and too true! I’ve been super busy with creating gift albums this last couple of weeks so haven’t managed to scrap much, however a new year and yay the albums are all finished!! I ended up doing 2 mini albums and a full 20 page 12 x 12 album in the last two weeks. Thank God it’s all done… phew! now I can relax…

I’ll be around in the New Year, got lots planned for Eidou so have a wonderful Christmas everyone!! x

OMG… I’m in Prima Heaven!!

It’s here, it’s here!! can you tell I’m excited? just a little? ok maybe a lot…


There’s gotta be almost NZ$2000 worth of Prima goodness in there (you can’t see the layers!!)


wow… need to sit down… but I can’t, too excited!! Thanks again to Prima for their generosity and for choosing me! I still think it was a mistake… but I’m so glad they made it… hehehe

The other night we took Joshie off for our annual wander around Smales Farm – it’s an industrial area on the North Shore that puts up lights and a big tree every year and is free to go to.


I love the fact that there’s loud Christmas music and even though there’s not that much to look at (the laser light show is nothing to write home about) just soaking up the atmosphere amongst a few thousand like minded individuals is just a bit special. We followed it up with a bit of a light trail around the streets around home… aaaah I love this time of year!

Haven’t managed to scrap much that I can show at the moment, mum’s been shuffling papers on an album she wanted to do for my aunt for Christmas and two weeks out from the big day I offered to do it for her…. nice of me but yep, a little stressful!! only 9 pages to go though so I’ll get there…

Have you checked out all the freebies at Eidou? there are a whole lot being added each week and we have some super specials on some gorgeous kits too! We also have Sara Belmont joining us soon, we’ve closed off our designer search and she’s the lucky (and super talented) last designer for Eidou for a while. We have such a fantastic team!

Ok, hoping to have some of my own scrapping done soon, just waiting on my goodie kit from Embellished (love scrappy mail)… hehehe

A time to share…

Here’s the layout I did for the Scrappin Patch competition in round 2 – in Mou Saha’s style. I found this one realllly hard as I hate my handwriting and NEVER do my own headings like that – I’d be lost without chipboard…


I’ve been very busy lately and haven’t managed much in the way of scrapping that hasn’t been done for Christmas presents! But I can share a few pages of an album I’ve made for my brother for Christmas (no danger of him reading my blog… LOL)… he’s always aspired to be a world famous skateboarder/surfer/snowboarder but although he did make it to being sponsored for surfing I think age has caught up with him and his dreams will only ever be that – a dream. Still he’s proud of his skateboarding so I made an album for him…


On the digital front we have a number of new artists who’ve joined Eidou! Welcome to Vicki Parker from England, Stacey Towers and Gina Fensterer from the US and Janine Worthington from New Zealand. These talented ladies join Sarah Gladstone and Wendy Polzin from Australia, Roxanna Parker from the US and myself in designing some awesome new products at fabulous prices!! Shortly our winner of the Cropstar Competition, Michele Stone, will also be joining us as a designer. Check out all the freebies they’ve been filling the store up with too!

We’re starting monthly competitions very soon as well as our Designer in the Spotlight and I have some HUGE ideas for next year to help bring all your hybrid scrappers over the dark side even more… hehehe
