Goodies from KIM ARCHER

End of last year I purchased 3 of Kims classes, They were fantastic and great value. I learn't so much including other types of craft like dying, decorating candles and much much more. I had a ball and I thank you so much Kim and your team.
With one of the classes, kim did a live chat class which was really fun and getting to know some other crafty like minded people. Kim offered prices through out the class and I was very fortunate to win one of them.
I received;
1 x sheet of Urban Lilly rubons
1x Lil'l Davis Chipboard words
1 x Kim archer girlfriend kit
Oh it is lovely kim and I THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I will be putting them to great use very shortly.


Due to the rainy weather all around me. I decided that I would do a lot of creating these holidays. Here are some layouts I have completed. It surprised me to see how many I had completed. I am still trying to catch up on so many old photos of when you kids were much younger.

A memorable Birthday

I was awoken early with my 2 adorable children. They had made some special gifts for me. Part of me was a bit worried what they had made and the other part was excited to see what they had come up with on their own.

Katie wanted to buy me something but after telling her I had purchased enough for my birthday she decided she wanted to make some thing. A very sweet thought.

The first I opened was a ring with my initials on it 'TP' the other was a ream o beads with ' I LOVE MUM', and then Katie gave me a cup wrapped in a freezer bag. Oh dear what is this i thought... oh don't worry mum Katie would say' it is a room freshener... I made it with your expensive shampoo - dads shaving cream' I had to laugh for I would cry and was given strict instructions not to throw it out.... lol

Ben Put some beads that i had given his sister into a small envelope and gave to me....lol.

We went out to Jenni's and the kids a a great time together and we all celebrated with a delicious woolies birthday cake!

Our little family went out for dinner then I went over to Sarah’s to enjoy nibbles and fun!
