He certainly is a cutie. More pics of Oliver please. I have always wanted a pet goat. Goats always look like they are smiling.

They do don't they. I like goats. I'd like a couple of those pygmy goats as pets, keep the grass down as well.

Chips is wonderful and gorgeous, as many photos of him as you like please

Saw this female Stag Beetle in the garden a few days ago:

Great photo, you don't see many stag beetles any more. Can't recall the last time I saw one, must be four or five years ago.

On the coastal walkway at South Beach in Timaru again but looking northish towards the breakwater that protects the harbour but increases the sand at Caroline Bay. Unfortunately most beaches around here are these type of beaches, shingle and stones. Caroline Bay started that way but became a sandy beach once the breakwater was built.

Chip certainly is gorgeous!

Maynooth says that a delicacy is something that most people are smart enough not to eat. (well, that's not exactly what he says but I cleaned it up).

Precious decided yesterday that we should go visit her friend Buddy. I'm not sure she was too keen on his welcome!

Yes quite a rarity now. A protected species even. I keep part of the garden very wild and have left part of an old fallen oak branch in one place. Maybe that sort of thing helps.

Here are a couple of Tortoiseshell Butterflies enjoying the sunshine ..and perhaps being friendly with each other. smile

Great to see you Martin. Yes isn't it nice when creatures are seen to be getting along well?

Hello Sara and thanks. smile The butterfly photo was shown on television. The weatherman asks for nature photos to be sent in. He described this one as, "Two butterflies having a private moment". Not very private if you ask me. Out there in full view and all. Just one photo amongst many but I got my name read out. Fame at last! smile

It's a great piccie, TW, no wonder they chose it to be broadcast!

I've been targeting the kitchen today, to get some goodies ready for the end-of-year party at my archery club tomorrow:

Mothergoose! I'm goggle-eyed at your friend's "portable" stash!!! I don't think I even possess that much stuff, and I thought I had too much! If that was her 'essentials' kit I can only imagine what her home-scrapbooking-space must be like!

So nice to see cats and dogs getting on together, the pair who live opposite me are a nice couple but more so when they aren't living together to get to know each other so well.

My annual review of Hampstead Garden Suburb front gardens has returned, this is a fairly well known one there which has been maintained as long as I can remember.

Precious has always seemed to prefer dogs to other cats, and she and Buddy have visited since both were very young. He's like the "boy next door" smile

I was afraid that last winter's ice storm had completely done for my roses, so I was very pleased and not a little surprised to see this beauty today.

She has a spare room at home which is solely her scrapbooking room and you can't move, let alone scrapbook, in it. She goes away frequently to scrapbooking camps whereas I go about once a year. Quite frankly, I can't be bothered packing and unpacking a car full of stuff on a regular basis. And no matter how much stuff you pack, when you get to camp and start working on a page or a card, you ALWAYS end up realising that there is something you need (e.g. a punch, or a particular colour ribbon/card/paper) that you failed to bring with you.

When I go to camp, all I take is my case of Copic markers and my binder with my digital stamps printed and ready to be coloured. Just colouring in the designs, ready for use in cards, is enough to keep me busy and I almost always end up giving somebody a free lesson in using Copic markers. Maynooth thinks it is hilarious that I have taken up colouring in at my age but actually I never did it as a child. Poor deprived kid, I was.

Here's an example of a card I made with a digital stamp that I coloured in. Although there isn't anything particularly special about it, I am quite proud of it because it was my first attempt at colouring something to give the illusion of black (the hat) without actually using a black marker and to give the illusion of white, without just leaving the area uncoloured. This probably sounds silly to those of you who are naturally artistic but I am not naturally good at art and did not study it at school, so this is all new to me.

I know what you mean about camps and classes! I usually just bring what I need to cut, measure and glue, and do all the finishing at home (photos, stamps, text, etc ...).

Your card looks great, and I understand completely about 'learning' to colour as an adult! There's a whole lot more to it that just filling in the blank spaces with colour, 'nt there? grin

Photo for today, the full moon of last Friday the 13th, a coincidence of events which won't happen again until 2049 if what I read in the papers is to be believed. Not a particularly outstanding photo, I fully admit, but I'm pleased as it's the first time I've actually managed to capture the moon at all :

I am finding that out! I have been working through tutorials on how to do hair, eyes, skin, etc. Still having problems with highlights and shadows. It's a whole new world to me. I belong to a family of artists but unfortunately didn't inherit those genes.

I use promarkers and there's lots of tutorials on pinterest if you run out of places to look, MG! I have resorted to using Conor's old colouring books when I don't have any stamps to colour smile

I'm one who takes anything and everything to scrapbook weekends but haven't been to one for ages - wish there was more around here!

Another view of the barren MacKenzie Country taken from the car as we were tavelling to Tekapo. This area has been decimated by rabbits but on the improve, however it still has a beauty of its own.

Those mountains in the distance are just spectacular! It sort of looks like some of our country ... but we don't have the mountains in the distance lol

Here is Chip venturing out and trying to work out his spot in the world. The big black goat is Pint (rhymes with hint) who is certain that Chip's place in the world in somewhere below her.

At this rate Chip will be bigger than Pint in no time flat. He must have doubled!


We have now picked most of the lychies, plenty this year. I was worried this tree would break under the weight. I took a huge bagful to school today. They went within 15 minutes. Teachers are real gannets!
