September, my last post ... oh it's been a long time!

Lots of changes here - after some volunteer work and casual work in aged care I took the plunge and enrolled in Certificate III in Aged Care.  Wow, getting back to study has been very interesting to say the least.  It took me a little while to adapt to the whole academia stuff - I'd forgotten all about the elitist jargon and the vocabulary that just confuses.

Anyway, I have proved myself to be a wonderful student - me, getting my assessment tasks done days ahead of the due date!  Very unlike my past student days where I spent many long nights trying to complete assignments before I arrived at the class where they were due to be handed in that day.

So with my studious activities (two days a week in class), my volunteer work, my paid work and my placement experience in an Aged Care facility, my creative little fingers have not gotten dirty.

I have had some mini albums started, my Christmas and vintage cards begun and some layouts ready to complete - all ready for me in the next couple of weeks when i have completed the course and get back to crafting.

I am so looking forward to getting lost in paper, ribbon and lace.  I have purchased some wonderful stamps hoping that I can get the hang of using them without smudging and making a mess.  Can anyone help me with the best type of stamp pads to use for stamping?  I have a black Stazon and some little Versa ink pads and a couple of Stampin' Up pads.  I want some budget ones that don't smudge and dry quickly.

Hopefully in a couple of weeks I'll have some wonderful creations to post here.

So till next time ...
