Slacker is my middle name

I hope everyone had a smashing new year! We all stayed up for the 9 o'clock fireworks, otherwise known as the "nanna" fireworks, walking just around the corner to view them from the local neighbourhood grassy strip. By midnight, everyone was in bed and I had to poke the geezer awake just to look at the fireworks from our bedroom window. We can just see the one closest to Manly.

But there is some art! I finished this outstanding project on the last day of 2007.....the very reason of my slacker-ness. Aren't I a slow-poke? (Hopefully, I've now responded to everyone who I owe an extremely late email.)


This really is a painting I made just for me. Having been creating and giving away all those presents got me all worked up and motivated to finish this before the start of the new year.


I'm eagerly ready for whole new batch of projects. I just need to get better organised. And now that the geezer has gone back to work, we can all go back to our regular routines......and I can hog the computer again. He he he!

Okeydokes! I'm off to use up the rest of nap-time thinking up the next lot of crafty to make. I'm intent on easing into the new year slowly. Hope you have a good week! Cheerio!
