  1. Three years ago today Jody died.  Darren and the boys are well and the boys are growing into young men, “Jody would be proud of”.  Aidan graduated from High School in December and Callan is now 16 ½.  Amazing how time flies.  Darren is touched when I say how Jody is still remembered on ScrapGirls and even recognizes the names when I show him.  She touched so many and is sorely missed... 💕

      Thankyou Marilyn for sharing how Darren and boys are doing. It is so nice that they keep in touch with you.

  3. So distressing to watch coverage of the Australian fires burning.  The devastation is unprecedented and the amount of acreage burning is unbelievable.  So sad to see.

      It is very devastating.  It was pointed out to me today that we can live without the animals but the bees and other insects needed for pollinating crops, fruit trees etc are dying in these fires.

  7. one of my friends on FB said if there was no bad luck, I’d have no luck at all... yep. All my food is ruined  ‘fridge is freezing everything. All my new veggies, trashed. My eggs, trashed, my brick of cream cheese, trashed... need I say more? My Christmas dinner is in the trash. Only my roast to eat.

      Andrea, that is not good news. I hope it all sorts out in some good way for you.

      Yes, all the gifts are wrapped and ready to go into the car today as we will be leaving home in about 5 hours.

  9. I just want to say "Thank You" to Scrap Girls- you all have been so faithful to have this creative home for us to come to for inspiration, fabulous LOs to drool over and for especially making us all feel welcome and encouraged! ( you have just really touched my heart over the years!)

      What a lovely message to share, thankyou. I know at times I have wandered away from Scrap Girls but I keep coming back. There really is something special about this place. If only we could have all those sharing their layouts in the gallery come join us here in the forum. Then, this place would be like it was back in the early days when I first joined.

  10. Pantone's color of the year for 2020 is "Classic Blue." Pantone 19-4052. What do you think of it?

    1. A-M

      A-M

      If my Dad were still alive he would disagree as that is the sort of blue he liked. It is okay but I do not know how they choose what color becomes the color of the year!

  11. I am still in the land of the living. Getting very frustrated as the completion of our Granny Flat as stalled. The builder has taken exception to a few criticisms we had & wanted repaired to our satisfaction. It has been extremely hot here of late. The last couple of days it has in 100Fs. Terrible bushfires are raging in Queensland & New South Wales with no weather relief in sight. Normally we have summer thunderstorms but no rain at all. Hope it eases up soon. Our daughter & grandsons are coming over for Christmas so it will be good to see them again.

      I am sorry to read that things are not running smoothly for your new little home. I hope it all gets sorted out and it does come together well. I know all about the heat, fires, no rain etc. We did get some rain last week but we need a lot more.

      Being an Aussie we do not celebrate Thanksgiving ( maybe we should! ). Angie, I hope your time with family is a happy time.

  14. This seems wrong. I have neighbors (4 on my street) that have Christmas trees and lights up already!.... Is it wrong? Or is it ok? 

    1. A-M

      A-M

      I personally feel it wrong as it really is not the Christmas season yet. I dislike seeing seeing  all the Christmas things in the stores appearing on the shelves so early.

  15. Down-under, our greater Sydney region is fire-rated today at the highest level of Catastrophic! High winds, no humidity, no rain, 37°C/99°F and all the bush is incredibly dry! 600 schools have been closed and it's quite smoky anyway from the terrible fires in the north of our state that have killed three and destroyed 150 homes! Our thoughts have been with the Californians as we too are going through a very dry time. Summer hasn't even arrived yet so it doesn't bode well for the next three months!

      Those blue skies this morning were misleading. The fire is still burning out of control heading south east to an area called New Italy which is a real forest area which is not good!

      It looks like a hot windy day here.  By the blue skies here this morning I think the bush fires burning near our town are now under control. The last two days the sky has been hazy with smoke.  One of the workers where I volunteer in aged care lost their home.

  17. We have arrived home after our 6 week trip. Very tired but thoroughly enjoyed it despite the miserable rainy, cold weather. We arrived home to beautiful sunny weather yesterday but today it is overcast & showery. Now to get over the jet lag. Progress on the Granny Flat slowed & it is not yet near completion.

      Good to see you safe back home and that you enjoyed your travels. I hope your new little home will be finished soon for you.

      Looking forward to the Birthday celebrations.... just hoping it will not entice me to blow my budget which is rather tight with the way the Aussie dollar is these days.

  23. Friday at last! But here’s my news. Alopecia areata
    Also called: AA, patchy hair loss
    Sudden hair loss that starts with one or more circular bald patches that may overlap.
    Alopecia areata occurs when the immune system attacks hair follicles, and is (in my case) and be brought on by severe stress. 
    This is the autoimmune disease I have, second time in my life. It sucks buckets! Extensive and hard treatment begins on Monday. For now I am bald everywhere! and have to wear hats. So be it!
