Coombe, Party and Beads



I would say sorry for my absence this weekend..
but the weather has just been soo gorgeous, I couldn’t stay indoors!!

It also was Cherise’s [far right] 12th birthday on Saturday..
she had a great day with a pool party and BBQ that went on till the early hours!!

Last friday I took all three of my kiddies to Coombe Abbey again
with the intention of taking some photo’s of the three of them,
I really have to take these moments nowadays..
as they all seem to have a ‘life’ of their own with their friends.. lol

In total I took over 200 photo’s so I have plenty of ammunition for the scrapagogo weekend!!!

But in the process i did manage to damage my beloved Camera [Canon 400D]
and the flash meganism just gave way and is not working anymore..

So I treated myself to a Canon 500D, Oh my gosh!! I’m soooo happy with my new baby!!!!


It’s got so many new features and even a HD video live feed!!
so expect to see some video’s on my blog


I’m sorry I haven’t got a card to show yet..
I did make one, but you will have to wait a bit for that 😉

I did find time to finish this necklace yesterday:

longhanger3  longhanger1

Its a pendant made out of flower cups and seed beads,
then a 3 string chain plait and it hangs down to almost waist length,
the chain took absolute ages as it has over 1000 beads on each string!!

I wish you all a pleasant evening and a great week ahead,

Big hugs,

Marlene xxx

    Oh my gosh your kids are gorgeous!! Nice that you got a brand spanking new camera to take their pics with! 200 at once, huh? You’re liking the camera, aren’t you?! lol The necklace is a work of art! Amazing that you actually made that – Did it take you months? That’s my problem – no patience!

  • Marion
