NZSU Pics of the Week 21 August 2016

Aloha from Hawaii this week, we are here on holiday with 2 of our sons and their families. It is taking me some time to acclimatise to the very hot weather, coming from the cold wintry blast we've just had in NZ. However many of the stores we have visited in the past couple of days have been air conditioned, enabling us to help out the local economy. We're having a lovely time and I hope you have a fantastic week.
PS: I'm sorry this post is late, I forgot we're a day behind here. (Ah well, Island time)

How's your week been? I've had a big week crafting "such fun" when I first saw the Swirly Birds and Scribbles bundle, I didn't know if I was that keen, but this week I have had a ball using these products, if you're sitting on the fence about whether to put these on your wish list, do it, they're fabulous to work with.
Have a fantastic week

NZSU Pics of the Week 10 July 2016

Hello fellow stampers, this week I'm blogging from Melbourne where I will be for the next couple of weeks. The weather here is a little warmer than in Auckland and considerably warmer than Christchurch, where I have spent most of the last three and a half months, helping to care for our newest Grandchild Connor. Connor's Mum suffers from ME/CFS and needs help each day so I will be living between the two cities for the foreseeable future. Because of this I haven't had my Stampin' Up supplies to hand, thus having very little chance to craft, so instead I've been creating digital albums and have caught up on a lot of family photos. However I really miss making handmade creations and whenever I get up to Auckland for a few days, I become ensconced in my craft room. So I've decided to pack up some of my craft supplies to take to Christchurch.
Have a fantastic week.
