My day job!

As nothing much has been happening on the shopping, decorating or craft side of my life, I thought I'd share with you a visual snippet of some of the designs I've been working on.

As some of you may know, I am a self employed graphic and website designer. You can find out more at my website That's Graphic

You can click on the images to see a larger and clearer view.

A large part of my business is web development. I create custom designed websites which make them unique to each business. Keeping up with all the ever changing technologies and compliances is challenging but keeps life interesting!

I hope you've enjoyed viewing some of the things that quite often prevent me from having time to blog!!

The kitchen is painted!

If you read my last post you will see that we had the 70's amber glass framework removed  from between our kitchen and family room. This then led me into wanting to re-paint our kitchen which I did last weekend.

Photos tell the best story, so here goes!!

That's painting done until I get the urge to do another room!!! 

While going through photos I came across a few of our kitchen when we did some other minor changes a few years back....

Hope you have a great weekend....We are off to Melbourne early tomorrow morning for the weekend with friends. We plan to go to the football to see the Crows tomorrow night and then might have to do some retail therapy on Saturday!!

A work in progress

Yay, the long weekend is here!!  I've been waiting all week for it to come as I'm eager to give our kitchen a mini makeover with changing the paint colour. The urge to paint started when we had a 70's amber glass panel and sliding door removed from between our kitchen and family room. We have never used the sliding door and we've always wondered what it would look like with the frame gone....now we know as one of our sons Daniel,  knocked it out for us last weekend!




We will be keeping the doorway open, but since last weekend, Daniel  has built a new frame and has also made me a shallow cupboard and wine rack to one side of the frame.....here is a sneak peak

And Daniel also finished off making our wall mounted coat hangers for our bedroom. Or as you will see in I'm using mine for my scarves.  Very handy having a son who is a cabinetmaker!!

You will have to stay tuned to see some more photos as I endeavour to give the kitchen a small face lift!

Hope you enjoy whatever it is that you are doing this weekend.

Something fishy and a new project

Wow, how time flies!  I haven't done any blog reading all week. Hopefully on the weekend, I'll make a cuppa and catch up on what's been happening in the lives of my blog friends.

The town where we live is on the Murray River and this year, due to the abundance of rain the river has been high which has meant Yabbies are in abundance. This hasn't happened for many years. A friend dropped us of a box of cooked yabbies last week. We just had to peel and eat them!

I spent a few hours re-potting last weekend, pulling out the petunias and planting pansies. These pink thrifts are giving a cheery greeting by our back door.
Between our kitchen and the family room is a very 70's glass panel and glass sliding door which we never use. I have talked about getting rid of it many a time to open it out into a wide opening. Anyway it is now happening!!  Our second son Daniel started pulling all the frame out last night and will re-do the frames on the weekend. Here is just a teaser photo of Daniel starting the process.  Yay!!

Stay tuned!
