In other news, Rockhampton is about to have a major flood in the next week - they expect the water to peak on Tuesday. We'll be fine at home as we live on a hill but we're a bit concerned about the shop and Ali's house - although we should be fine as long as it isn't any worse than what they are predicting! Parts of Rocky are being evacuated and quite a few things are in short supply at the supermarket as everyone stocks up. So, fingers crossed everyone that we'll all be ok!
In brighter news, today is the first Friday in ages that I get to work at the shop, usually I've had to work at my other job. It's a tradition for a few of us to get together and have a bit of a scrap on Fridays so now I won't miss out! Yay! So hopefully soon I'll have some more arty stuff to share with you in the next few days as I have done absolutely nothing all week!
Alrighty, I must dash... will share some pictures of the flood as the water rises!

I ABSOLUTELY loved the American version so I can't wait to see how the Aussies do it! I almost jumped off the couch when they showed a sneak peak the other night - scared Noel and mad him jump too! Now I just need to wait till February....

The campsites were bigger than we expected so Ali and Jo decided to share the same spot. You can see the toilet block in the background - it's my kind of camping when there are flushing toilets! They were actually pretty clean as well... the rangers came and cleaned them at least twice while we were there.
I finished a mini album on that I've been working on for a while.... it's about my resolutions for the new year....
Oh, and my exciting news.... Ali and I are heading off to America next year!! YAY! We are going over for CHA in January and also to go on a scrapping cruise around the Caribbean... gee we have a tough job.... LOL. Donna Downey and Heidi Swapp are teaching on the cruise so that is going to be awesome... can't wait!

I must say that the best bit was having a greater appreciation for what I have at home... sometimes you can get caught up in having material possessions.... I tell you I have never appreciated a hot shower or carpet so much in my life!!
Anyhow, the year has already gotten off to an exciting start.... January 1st saw the launch of the all new look of Embellished. We now have an all new forum as well as new monthly competitions... if you haven't been and checked out the site for a while, now is the time!! The changeover has also meant that all members have had to re-register to gain access to the forum so even if you were a member before you will need to sign up again.
Today was the first day of an online class that I am doing by the extremely talented Emily Falconbridge - it goes for 4 weeks and is full of painty goodness! And just so this post isn't completely devoid of pictures here is a pic from Emily's class....
I must admit I am not one for keeping up with weekly challenges but this is one I really want to do.... I've decided that I'm not exactly sure what makes me me, so this has come at the perfect time.
Well, it's time for me to go to sleep.... I have even more exciting news to share but it's just going to have to wait, but let me just say that it's so super duper exciting that I just can't wait!
See you all later!!
