Hosted my first make and Take demo this week and had some help from my Team Leader which was great! Had 7 ladies and all but one made a purchase, so had a great first one! I ended up spending all my commission on more products to build up by kit, but got heaps of freebies and other cool things. I am loving this already! Looking forward to my next demo which was booked at mine and then will try my hand at teaching a workshop! Fun, fun and fun!
Family are all good and I'm trying to go to bed at a reasonable hour, so keeping this short.
Here is a new family pic I took with self timer and tripod, happy with this one!!!! :)

Here's some more of my fave Gold Coast pics, with Taylah waving to me from the carousel, Taylah and Dave watching the Scooby Doo show at Movie World and Taylah and Jack having some fun on the kiddies dodgem cars!
Today I received a huge box in the mail which was my business kit for my new business working as a Kaszazz consultant. Just thought I would try and make some money out of doing something I love. (Which I was lucky enough to do with my Photography, but wanting a change at the moment!) Becoming a consultant or party plan girl was never really up my alley, but Kaszazz have such a great range of new products now and use alot of inks, chalks and other products from well-known companies, and their workshops are becoming alot more hip and catching up with the latest trends. I also like that I have a great support team here in Townsville, so always someone to ask if I need help. I'm looking forward to doing my first workshop, just have to find the scrapping people in my area now!!! So if anyone needs anything or has a question, let me know!!!
Other news- what a very foul weekend we had! My two kids were so sick from midnight Friday/Sat until Sunday evening. I have never cleaned up so much vomit in all my life. Taylah was the first to start, she decorated the mattress they had fallen asleep on, then my bed, which didn't have a matress protector on, her clothes and hair. She was up all night with terrible stomache cramps and lots more vomit. Jack started about 4 in the morning, thankfully he wasn't as bad, but still managed to decorate his bed, clothes and me. Then next day, I washed sheets, matressess, pillows, floor rugs, lounge suites, cuddly toys, clothes and hair. We nearly took Taylah to hospital, poor little thing it was so scary, she has never really been sick like that before, it didn't stop, so we went off to the docs Sunday morning and we all agree they must've got food poisoning. We just wish we could work out where from???? Thankfully, today, they were back to normal and I took them to the Museum for a treat, they love it there, lots of interactive games and interesting things, plus JURASSIC JOE, was singing dinosaur songs. WE all had a little dance and sing, it was just great to see them better, I enjoyed my day with them and being very thankful that all was well now! I even treated them to some fries from Maccas as they hadn't had any tasty food that had stayed in their bellies, since dry bikkies the night before!

Taylah and Jack have always enjoyed helping me or Nanna make a cake, or any kind of cooking. One day, they decided they would like to invent their own recipe, I wasn't allowed to give them a recipe, I was only allowed to hand out the ingredients they asked for. The first attempt wasn't bad, but this was the 2nd attempt a few weeks ago and it was delicious!!!! Taylah knows all the main ingredients to put in, I just reminded her of a few she may need and then it was my suggestion to put the choc chips in which they thought was pretty good! I was very proud of them and very happy with the taste of their master piece. When it was cooked they cut it in half so they could decorate 1/2 each. Fantastic stuff!!!!
Well, we have officially been in Townsville for 6 months now! Time really has flown by, it's taken me all this time to realise we are actually quite settled now. Mind you, both Dave and Taylah are very adament that they don't want to stay here and the one who took so long to come to terms with it all, (moi), is actually feeling like I half like it here!!! We're still not sure what is going to happen in a few months when Dave's job is finished, we shall see!
I'm rather excited to be starting up a new business, especially as it is scrap related!! I shall reveal more as time goes on!
I probably should post some pics here as I don't do it enough, so will leave you with: a card I made today, and a layout, with a pic from our recent Gold Coast holiday. (Taylah found all the characters she could to have cuddles with!)
