Hi !

Arent the nights getting colder?? Winters coming i can feel here in Melb, days are nice though most of the time..

And they also have a handmade market - you better check this out.. full of handmade goodies ready to buy.. and they are all handmade by some terrifically talented ladies.. but they sell out fast so make sure you get in quick..

You can visit the market here : Top 50 Market..

A Prima sale and forum based challenge... check it out... :)

Leanne from Scrap Therapy mailed me and let me know about the happenings on the forum..

We have a new forum based challenge launched on our forum nearly every Friday evening - three a month have a $25 prize voucher attached - we also sponser several good challenge blogs that are floating around. A new Man (Manufacturer) of the month is announced every month - we have a huge challenge in the winds but that probably wont launch until early next year.
They still have places left on their retreat being held at the end of the month...
They also have a great Prima Flower sale as well as other goodies.. . take advantage of it i did !
