What a Week...

You might want to grab a cuppa, this could be long???
It's been all go in the Underwood household, starting with last weekend.

Erin and I had an awesome night last Saturday. We went to the P!nk concert here in Perth.

We did the girly thing before hand, hair, make-up, ect and the camera was going crazy, lots of those self-holding the camera shots, some disastrous, some not. You should have seen the mess in the bathroom afterwards??

Erin trying to get me to do the Pout!! Not happening LOL

Locky and Rick, didn't want to miss out on the fun either. Poor Shadow got in on the action whether he wanted to or not LOL.

P!nk, she knows how to put on a show, she is brilliant live. We didn't have the best possie, but that didn't stop us dancing the night away.

This blew me away! These girls wind and twisted themselves in these fabric ropes, with no safety ropes and put on the most spectacular performance. At one stage, P!nk (on the pale pink rope) is lowered through a gap on the stage floor and comes back up again soaked in water, goes into a twist, unravels, with the water spinning off her, it was unreal.

Rock on!!! (or whatever they say LOL)

Be afraid, be very afraid LOL

It was Ricks Birthday the next day, Sunday. He said it was one of his best Birthday's. He got to do one of the things he likes to do best, play Fantasy board games so we did this all afternoon.

I am being blessed at the moment with a period of peace in the home. Where things seem to be going smoothly for all of us, IYKWIM. So allow me a little bragging :0)

Erin's working full time and doing a spot of modeling in her spare time. She had another shoot this week.
Those eyes!!

Liam's been doing a heap of filming. He needed some practice shots of some technique he uses (sorry I've forgotten what he called it)so he asked if he could do some arty shots with my work, so I helped him set up a few displays around the garden.

I'll try and pop a little gadget of some of what he does including the video he shot in the photos above, on the sidebar to the left, if you want to check it out. The one of the Audrey's Art is a little quick on the close up shots, but I love it, the music he used and the fact that he took the time to do it for his mum.
For those who are a little technically challenged like me - if you click on the video, press play, as soon as the video starts press pause and let it load (the gray bar goes fully across the lower section on the screen), then press play again to watch the whole video without it jumping.

Little Locky, who's not so little anymore (I had to get him some new school shoes, men's size 7, at 11 years old??) is plodding along happily as usual.
In this photo, Locky and his best mate Zac having the last swim of the season recently, which if you ask me should of been taken a few weeks ago.

Just like it is in our household sometimes and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Believe it or not I have more on this week but it's taken me so long to do this post so far (in between hanging out washing ect)that I best give you a break and pop back in a day or so with some more.

Stay Safe.


Oh My Goodness!!

Thank you to everyone who has bought one of our kits, I can't believe we've sold out!!!!!! Thank you.
For those that missed out, keep an eye to our blogs, we are going to try post a new kit each week, hopefully on a Friday, if you are afraid you might miss out just drop me an email (link on the side bar) and I will let you know when the new one is going up. )Really I will Sonja LOL)

Back Again

I made it,,,, Another post.
It's Sunday morning, it's a long weekend here in WA, the house is silent and I've just put the kettle on to make a cuppa. All is good in the Underwood house.
As usual I've been busy, seems to be the story of my life of late, it's a good busy!! If there is such a thing. LOL
Our classes are going off!! And if you haven't noticed, we've put some more kits in the store front on the side bar to the left.

Teal Tile Canvas

Moulin Rouge Tile Canvas

So if you've got caught up in the craze of tile these would be a good way to get started, get some more ideas or even to add to your tile masterpiece. :0)

My aim for this beautiful day is to catch you up on what I've been up to recently, but I need to see to some 'Domestic Goddess' duties in between blogging so it may be in separate posts, but this is a good start. Be back real soon with what could be a huge post, so be prepared.

OK, now for the rules:

New Classes

Max and I have some new classes coming up, just check the side bar for info or click on the places I teach to view their timetables. I am working on a better way to display dates ect, so bare with me.
Tommorrows Memories are celebrating their 5th birthday,this week, 'Happy Birthday', so pop over there to see what they are up to.
They came up with a great idea to help raise funds for breast cancer research.
For a gold coin donation you could purchase a little tag kit to decorate as you liked and return to the shop, to be put together with other returned tags, forming a art piece for the shop. I can't wait to see what the end result is, with every ones wonderful artwork pieces displayed together. Hopefully I'll be able to share some pics as I'm off there tonight for a class.

Here's mine.

MmmmAaaaAAAXXXX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

Well if you haven't guessed who got into my blog,,,, Max did LOL Thank goodness she didn't get to carried away,,LOL. Naaa!! I got her to do a post for me, we were so excited about out kits that I had to share and we don't seem to be getting a lot of time out of our internet,,, The download fairies hit again and as usual no-one in the house is responsible. Rick at one staged thought that maybe our net security stuff (very technical word)was being used or got into by neighbors maybe,,,, I'll leave it for him to sort out, I had a little bit of a 'woh is me' moment,,,well actually maybe if a little kid moment, or both,,, You may need to use creative visualization here,, LOL. I said, not quite stamping my feet,,, "it's not fair!!, I don't get on the computer much,,,and when I do, we seem to be shaped!! it's just not fair".(picking bottom lip off the floor. All is good now, but for how long,,, don't know.

I just want to thank everyone who purchased and wished us luck with our kits, the first lot went off with a blast. Sorry for those that missed out. We are working on more, so stay tuned.
