busy busy............

This photo is from Nundle and the moon was just setting as the sun was rising............especially for Leanne.........

for the bloggers in the Secret Santa Christmas Swap SSCS09.........this is when I got the idea for the ornament..............Tracey sent this one to me last year and I thought it would be great to have a decoration to hang on the tree to remind you of a kind friend each Christmas...........just a small decoration to hang on your tree......many friendships have been made thru the SSCS so I can't wait to see what happens this year.............check out the list on the sidebar............

oh and I have a new blogger for the swap............Granny Goose go welcome her to blogland
(if there was someone else too let me know cause I had a feeling there is another new girl too)
edit Teresa is the other lady please welcome them both

.......you should have all received an email from me now so check the "junk mail" first if you haven't........ 1/2 of you have replied in less then 2 hours OMG you are soooo good.........makes this job so much easier...........


yesterday at a friends I spotted this lone dandelion in the middle of the mown lawn.............more pictures of it here on Snappy Friends.............



I am in a few birthday fat 1/4 swaps and I am patiently waiting to open this bundle..............(counting down the seconds but patiently waiting)


life is busy so if you don't hear from me don't worry............back when I get a chance.............

Take Care til next time..............

  5. What a lovely photo of dawn with the moon setting. I am afraid I will probably never see it, as I like sleeping in. Although I have got up in the middle of the night to view comets and moon eclipses!!

  8. Beautiful ornament. I also do an ornament exchange each year so I'm all for more ornaments. What a great addition.

    I've sent you a flurry of e-mails. (Hopefully these ones got through to you) Though, not within the two hour mark. :)
