Just a little bit scary!!!

My brother, sister in law and my two nephews (and the 2 dogs) are facing the threat of evacuation from their home in Emerald, Queensland. Its been raining there for weeks really. The news reports are saying that 80% of the town could be under water!!! Thats the scary part.
Shane assures me they will be fine...that they are on fairly high ground...but I cant say my fears are allayed any. Its quite concerning when we are on opposite sides or our rather large country. Mind you...I am sure it is somewhat more alarming for them though...;)
I am praying they will be fine in their home and that I wont see them being rescued from their rooftop on the news...YES...a sense of humour is essential in these time!! :)
Cross your fingies for them...and all Queenslanders affected by these floods please!!

Karyn's Giveaway

Hello to anyone who still bothers to come here.

I confess to having lost alot of confidence and interest in beading and claying of late. I have even thought seriously about giving all my beads and clay away. Lets face it...we could use the space my 'stuff' takes up for something more useful!! Which is why I havent bothered to blog.

Anyways...a very talented lady, Karyn is having a giveaway on her blog to celebrate having 100 followers. She is a very talented seed beader and also makes the yummiest fused cabs (some of these are the giveaway). Pop over to "Releases by Rufydoof" and have a look at her lovely blog.

Good on you Karyn!!!

Holiday Beading

I am a bad blogger!!! I know it. I shall do my best to be a better blogger this year. Last year kind of got on top of me.

Anyways...I thought I would share some piccies of my holiday beading. I took my seedies on our annual 2 week holiday in beautiful Esperance (on the south coast of Western Australia).
