Cookies what are they?

Hi Stampers,

Well what a busy week it's been for me with only small moments to myself, you sometimes feel overloaded. 

I think we often find we have many hats, either being a Mum or Dad, being a teacher, a provider or even just a worker - however I think it's always good to find time for yourself whether it be crafting or just sitting down by yourself and watching TV. This week I would like you all to take one hour a day for yourself and do whatever makes you happy, because you never know what tomorrow may bring.

Based on that, I thought I would go over "Cookies" and what they are. Now I'm not referring to the nice ones stored in a jar at home that you were never able to eat, but the ones that relate to the computer. 

What are cookies? A cookie is just one or more pieces of information stored as text strings on your computer. Some webpages will send you a cookie and the web browser  (i.e. Chrome, Internet Explorer etc) will store it . The browser then returns the cookie to the web page the next time the page is visited.
Sometimes the information stored in the cookie is out of date  (i.e. not updating current information) and therefore you may want to clear them now and again. And to do this, use these steps...
If you are using Internet Explorer for example, in the toolbar along the top select "Tools > Internet Options" and follow as per below.

Now with all that cleared up (mind the pun) we can look at the pics of the week...

Enjoy your week eveyone

Rounds the Bays

Hi All Crafters,

Once again this weekend has produced some fantastic weather, who would have thought its Autumn. It was so hot today I felt sorry for all those runners doing round the bays, did anyone enter today? My husband did, I of course stayed inside and enjoyed the air conditioning at home, sounds bad I know but hey we all can't compete!

Today is the last day for the NZSU Week 8 Colour challenge, for those that haven't entered you have until midnight tonight. Thank you for all those that have already entered, I have some fantastic cards to select from!

Now onto the pics of the week...

I wish you all a safe week.

Last week for the Challenge

Hi Everyone,

I hope you've all had a fun and creative week.

I haven't been able to get any crafting done this week, however did spend some time at my 3 year old's kindy making shortbread using the "Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps".  I was presently surprised to see how well the kids were able to swap the silicon shapes and how well the handle fitted snuggle into their hands.

Now just a reminder, this week is the last week for the challenge so please make sure your entries are in. I can't wait to see what you can create with the colour coach.

Well onto the pics...

Happy stampin everyone.
