Is there a TIME?

Standard

We have been visited here in Melbourne by the sensational U2 & my son & his mates went off to see them on Saturday night.  I LOVE their music & their message, however I am past standing in a ‘moshe pit’ waiting in line with thousands of screaming fans……….oh no, signs of aging creeping up…..(well, that’s not entirely true, I have never been that keen on huge concerts, I am more a ‘live at a cafe’ style myself)…………anyway, he came back to his (still) very pregnant wife showing off his blurry phone camera shots & tried to explain to us the amazing light show. They bought an amazing message of peace, harmony & co-existance with fellow-man.  We were blessed to have them here.

Mean while, back on the home front, I decorated my 2007 diary today, as I need to start putting some dates in it.  It is interesting, how different it is than my 2006 one……..but you’d want that wouldn’t you!!?!?!  I have used the new Cosmo Cricket papers I told you about last time, these ones are from the ‘Love Notes’ range.  Soft layered mauves & turquoise & pinks………delish!  I also used my fav. 7 gypsies rubbings……….these are so delicate though, I have found from experience that they need to be sealed to last in a real life application (ie anything other than in a scrapbook layout under plastic!) so they all have a liberal dose of Mod Podge to seal them.

NOTE TO SELF: mount glossy magazine pages BEFORE splodging them with Mod Podge!!! (my fav. glue/sealer for my diaries (they get a bit knocked about)

I love the soft lavander colour on the cover of this diary, & it reminds me of one of my fav. places in our country, Tasmania, (only 38 more sleeps ’til we visit again) so I couldn’t resist running with that theme.

Here is 2006 diary…….again, picked by cover colour (after the inside configuration was sorted……I love these diaries, this is my third year using one they are made by Debden [Tuscany Range]…….not too big & bulky, but a strong cover to lean on and will stay opened flat…….I use week to an opening for my personal diary & day to a page for our day book)
