Great finds!

It's been study, study study for the last little bit - in saying that I really mean that study is going on around me and I try to tune out as often as possible (love the wireless internet in lectures!) and surf other crafty-type blogs.

College has four Grapevine events each each and I love each and every one of them! Grapevine is our own in-house op shop and every item is 20c each or $2/bag. What a bargain! I always end up getting stacks of stuff, trying it all on and then returning it all the next day but this year I found some keepers. I was able to nab a lot of really nice tops, one skirt, one pair of shoes, 2 pairs of socks, a few jumpers for $2! That was all in the first bag! My other bag included an awesome crocheted tote:

some beautiful, fluffy wool and knitting needles:

a vintage, embroidered tablecloth (in the photo with the tote) and other miscellaneous things like a saucepan, a few craft books, dress patterns, a recipe book and an awesome old camera.

I love Grapevine!

Sappy layouts

I told my prayer triplet at college today about my blog and my scrapping and warned them that the far majority of my scrappin' revolves around my obliging husband so I thought I should post some LOs of my darlin' hubby to show what I mean! These are both digi LOs. In the first one Nathan hasn't got his eyes closed because he's asleep or all lovey dovey but because he was well and truly sick of me taking photos. Poor thing.

Just thought I'd post something as procrastination - I should be reading some primary document for church history tomorrow. It's Biel talking about grace - or his version of it.

Been scrapping like a crazy person for the last few days. I'm making up a baby book for a friend up north in Brisbane - her baby was born in January and here I am still making up the baby book in March!

I've got a 'scrapping date' on Friday with some fun girls from church - only one of them scraps but they all like looking at my stuff *blush* and to be honest, I like showing it all off. It won't be all show and tell though as they will be making their own stuff. I'd like to have more stuff done by Friday though to show off some more.

I'd like to make this 'confessions' minibook from Shimelle's blog - I'll post some pics when I get it done.

Off to read some more about indulgences!
