Hi there to you all.....this is my first year of participating in this wonderful event, and sadly this is the last year Lisa is doing this event....Basically, its all about a whole lot of lovin' really...its a way to get to know other bloggers all around the world...go check out her site will explain it all...

Alittle about me...
I am a mum to 6 kids, from 9 year old twins to 20 year old!!I home school one of my little boys because he has a life-threatening condition, which really lead me to needing a bit of me time...thus my dapple in the creative side of life and a little addiction to the computer!!!!
I love looking at other peoples lives and creations through their blogs...i try to comment on as many as I look at, tho must confess when my usage is up and the computer is soooo slow I can't comment as often as I would like...
I love to scrap book, my biggest love I think,having had around ten publications, which is very exciting as anm artist you would agree, but I am just beginning to discover that I love art and drawing and writing, I even sew a little and knit as'll also catch me singing in the shower every day as well!!!my kids all love the creative and practical arts as well...
a short lifetime ago I was a teache...I live in Sydney Australia and can't wait to visit the rest of the blogs on Lisa's list...bring on the 8th I say, thats when my computer speeds up...

It's only small, but I would sure love to win it....
All you have to do is...leave a comment on this post and make sure you have some sort of contact info for me so if you win I can let you know...

I'll use some sort of random generator to pick the winner and it will be drawn on
  17th February
and posted no later than 3 days later!!!!

Just leave a comment...its that simple....
Go check out Lisa's blog, there are so many bloggers on her list its amazing!!!!
Included in my giveaway is
1 packet see d's large heart stamp set
1 8 sheet pack pink tissue paper
1 12 pack 6x6 paper pack
1 imaginations chipboard book
1 cute pink acrylic buttons set
1 36 piece chipboard alphabet set
not shown, but i have a little collection of metal charms, i will throw in some of these a s well...

I have shown some in detail....

Ok...well...until next time
lots of it

G'day Mandy,

Gee that is a nasty croup sounding cough your son has in the video.

6 kids, with one son being sick. You are a busy Mum that's for sure. I thought 3 made me busy. There is nothing worse than seeing your child ill. My heart goes out to you. Make sure you look after yourself, as a happy Mum means a happy household. That's what I think anyway.

Best of luck to you and your huge family.

Oh yeah, your give away. Please count me in and pop on over to mine if and when you have the chance.

Hi, nice to meet you! Just quickly browsed through your blog and will definitely have to come back later to see more! I just have two munchkins so far. I don't think our family will grow to eight, though both my Mom and cousins are from six-kids households. Kids are lots of fun (and work, and worry, and surprise, and joy), that's for sure! Please enter me in your giveaway. I'd love to win! And please stop by my blog to enter my giveaway if you get a chance...a whole new (wee) world awaits you!

Have an artful day!
