Hi Everyone! I have had no computer for days and won't be back on for a couple of more days. Please contact me via if you need anything. I can access this account 'sometimes'. Computer is being fixed and should be back to me soon!!
Also, my best friend Ange had a baby boy yesterday (a bit ealrier than expected). All is well and he is beautiful. They haven't named him yet, but should today!!!! I am so excited. This is her fourth baby. She now has 2 girls and 2 boys and we have been through all our pregnancies together. I will update with some pictures and a name as soon as I can get back on line permanently.

The Twits

I am taking my 5 year old to see this play tonight at the Theatre Company.
We are very excited as I loved this book as a child!

"The Twits" by Roald Dahl - as adapted by David Wood

Mr and Mrs Twit are sloppy and smelly. They don’t wash and they don’t clean but they do play nasty tricks on each other. For example Mr Twit put a big slimy frog in his wife’s bed, so to pay him back Mrs Twit cooks spaghetti worms for her husband to eat. Even worse than that, this horrible duo captures a family of Muggle-Wump Monkeys and keeps them hanging upside down in a cage. Luckily help is near at hand with the magic Roly-Poly Bird coming to the rescue with a hair-raising plan to save the Muggle-Wumps.

The Twits is one of Roald Dahl’s most popular stories and has consistently featured in the top 100 all time favourite books for children aged from 5 - 16. This adaptation by David Wood is a raucous and wonderfully wild tale of mayhem and mercy, played out through slapstick, music and drama and is a magical treat for all of the family.

Facebook Bug

this is Katrina's profile

I have been bitten by the facebook bug! I have had this account for a while, but have not really done much with it. Overnight I have found an old friend that was an exchange student from New Zealand when I was in year 9. We became great friends and after she left I travelled to NZ to stay with her family for a few weeks. She has been back to Australia a few times and I last saw her about 6 years ago. We lost contact after then. She is moving to Austrlia for the summer and we are catching up!! And then I have found a couple of other old friends too. I think it is so funny! I recommend to give it a go!!! A great way to quickly message each other.

Little La La's

I thought I would just give a quick update on Little La La's.

Due to my hectic life and the possibility of some new projects on the horizon, I will be slowing up on Little La La's. My stock is getting low, so please pop on over and have a look if you wish to purchase anything. What ever is left in the next few days will find a spot in my house no doubt!!

If you are interested in talking to me about purchasing my stock at wholesale prices please email me. I also have a "business package" for sale if anyone is interested in the concept of Little La La's.

There may be some changes with my blog also, but I will post about that soon. I am still reading everyone's blogs and am finding new inspiration every day!

Have a great day!

Paper Dress Swap

Becky has received the dresses I sent her, so I can post some pictures now! Thanks to Jeweled Elegance for hosting.

The kids decided they would help (well to be honest this was the only way I was going to get them done if they helped haha!!).

For fun, I put at little zipper on the back of one of the dresses.

I also sent her a cute lingerie scented bag to pop in her draw to make everything smell sweet. You can see it over at her blog.

I have been quiet

Hi! I haven't blogged for a while which is not like me!! I have had school holidays, and I hurt my back so I have been a bit of a hermit. I am on the mend now. I have still been reading blogs when I have had the chance, but haven't been able to sit for very long haha!!!

I will be back with some more updates with what has been happening in my little world soon!!

My Outdoor Area

I have been giving my outdoor pergola area a bit of a freshen up. I haven't really done anything too exciting, but have added a few items I had stored away for a while. I am very keen to get a timber deck out there, a new table and some timber slats to close it in, but I can't really build these things! This is something I will have to wait for my husband to do. The deck especially is a job that has to be done over consecutive days as it would be too dangerous to leave it unfinished for long periods of time. He works a fair bit, so this will have to wait until he is free!!!

The area is rather big (well to me anyway, I am sure it's not that big to anyone else), and is rather long and the roof is very high. So I have always found this space hard to work with. Firstly, the floor needs to be brought up, and there needs a screening from the roof down to just above head height to close it in a bit more. It is also far too sunny, so hopefully some screening will help. We will be doing the screening in the next few weeks as this is only a small job so I will add some more pictures when done!

Ok, I have been tagged a few times, so thought I better give it a go.

7 random things about me....

1. I cannot lick a paddle pop stick as the sensations sends me crazy
2. I have a University degree Bachelor Communications (Advertising and Marketing)
3. I won lots of awards for Public Speaking and Debating back in my High School Days (hahaha)
4. I got a tattoo about 20 months ago
5. I have had Crohn's Disease since I was 18
6. I jumped out of a plane about 4 years ago
7. I moved into a guys house that I did not know, we lived separate lives for 6 months, then one day we 'got together', then were engaged 8 weeks later and married 6 months later!! Of course to my gorgeous husband Andrew (hehehehe).

Well they are short and sweet, but I bet you never knew those things about me!!!!!

Paper Dress Swap

Here is a sneak peak of the dresses I am sending to Becky.
Thanks to Heather for hosting!
After Becky receives them, I will put some more pictures on here. I had lost of fun with these. They are not spectacular or anything, but they are pretty cute!!!

My Sisters House

I wanted to share with you some pictures of my sister's gorgeous house! She and I have similar tastes, but I like lots more pink and she likes green. Of course nothing in her house is ever out of place and I am sure I send her into a state of panic when my boys lick all her windows and eat all over the house (haha)!!

(Sorry about the quality of some of the photos, but I forgot my camera so took them with hers and wasn't very confident with it, but I still think they show all her pretty things!)

These photos below are the beginning of my sister's nursery. She only got her cot last week so she is putting it all together. I can't wait to see what she has because I know she will add some gorgeous touches when the baby arrives.
