Post it notebook with stamped embellishment

This is a notebook I made in 2004 for my sister. I stamped on an Opals tile (that is a piece of straw board or matt board with a few layers of Currawong Opals on it).
Another way rubber stamps can be used.

(Natalie has a nice stamped art one on her blog).

Ok, that's all for today... I'm off to sand some more polymer clay castings, and file my nails at the same time!! *yikes*

Post It Note Booklet

I originally posted this in my Stampamajiggies blog. But I can't see the point of having two blogs when this one has become such a mish-mash of things around me. So I am moving posts on this blog, to delete the other one. I'm trying to post them by marking them with the date they were originally posted. Fingers Crossed.

Time's got wings again!

I cannot believe it's been two months since I stopped by here!
I have been busy, still making samples for Krafty Lady but I have also had to go back to work, part time, to keep receiving our "family allowance/parent payment" (not even sure of the right name for it) but once your youngest turn 7, or by July this year, we parents, as if we dind't have enough to do, have to go back to work... I am very lucky that I managed to secure a volunteer position (you can "work for the dole" i.e. volunteer and not get paid, or you can get real work, well, for me so far that's what's been going on!) at our school...

The best part of volunteering is that when the littlies have the flu, you don't feel too guilty calling in sick! Plus I'm also working on their website, which I do from home, so when the girls are sick, there'll be more work done on the site. Well, so far I worked two days, and then the girls got a cold, so ... we simply started our Easter Holidays earlier... oh, and did I mention how much fun it is to have the same holidays as the kids? Yay!
I will probably have to get a "real" job eventually, but this suits me just fine for now. I started working around... 14 or so, summer job while going to school, and worked until I had to move here to have our children :) it's been just about 9 years since I last had a job, so it's quite a shock to the system!!!
But all in all, it's just "another phase" of life, isn't it?

Hope you like my little post it note booklet... might be gifts for teachers for this year! Still early, but the next thing we'll know, is that it's going to be December!

Ooh, if you look to the right, I started listing items on Etsy. I've got a few more to find and list, but I want to make sure I HAVE them before I list them, so I do have to find them!!
