The diet......

Tanya asked in my previous post about the diet im on and ive been taking photos (to scrap of course lol) of my daily routine on the Candida diet its essentially a strict diet im on for the next 8 days (its for 2 weeks im nearly half done woot woot) Im not allowed alot of things no mushrooms,no dairy,no caffiene,no breads,no pasta,no processed meats and no chocolate or sugar (I seriously nearly cried at the last one lol those that know me know I LOVE sweet stuff!) along with a heap of other things the list is as long as my arm lol The naturopath has given me a meal plan,some herb drink (ugh its like a mixture of potpourri,cough medicine and manky water all mixed into a little brown bottle lol) So anywhoo heres the diet
Before breakfast: Zinc drink-looks harmless enough but oh boy did it knock me off my feet for a couple of days not a fan lol The herb drink-note the delicious brown colouration mmmm tasty lol

Breakfast: An omelette made with leek,onion,eschallots and 2 organic eggs ....holey dooley those bad boys are exy!The inner stinge in me argued with myself at the egg department in woolies ......."But Tony said you have to......but they are soooooo dear...I could buy 3 of the cheap cartons for that!" lol I quickly took a deep breath and deposited them in the most expensive basket of groceries Ive ever bought and raced to the checkout lol
Snack: 1 piece of fruit-apple.banana or pear

Before lunch: More delicious herb drink

Lunch: 1 palm of meat (can be organic chicken,grain fed beef,turkey,fish,lamb-I think NOT!lol) Day 1 I went for the organic chook and my 2 palms worth of steamed vegies

Snack: 12 nuts I picked macadamias

Before dinner: More herb drink.....usually holding my nose to drink it at this stage of the day lol

Dinner: Im allowed to have roasts,stews,same as lunch or stirfrys with my "Allowed vegies" This is my super yummy stirfry (The pan is a mini one lol im not eating a massive fry pans worth lol) made with organic beef oh my this stuff is delicious!!

Im also keeping a dream diary....hehehe if anything its worth a giggle ....last nights dream involved me being bitten by 2 small monkeys :O yep im weird lol and I usually have 2 dreams a night so he is going to get double the read lol

So thats my life for the past 6 and coming 8 days :) I feel "better" not sluggish or bleh like I had been so it must be newly aquired double chin from the last few months is gone again :D My clothes are falling off me so im guessing ive lost about 2kgs...thats not the idea of the diet but obviously my body had lots of toxins to dispose of or perhaps its the no carbs and no sugar thing :$ Im having Bowen therapy when I go back for my next visit,so we'll see how that goes too :) It'll all be worth it in the end ...hopefully :) Cross your fingers for me pretty please :)

If you survived reading this long thanks for sticking with it lol and sorry if I bored you lol

Pickin daisies

This is my LO I created for the Get Picky inspiration challenge this month :) I based it on one of my sketches and used the "Life is good" kit from the shop :) I added some of my MVB creations to the kit-a butterfly critter,a couple of covered buttons and some cloud buttons :) I was inspired by the stripes in the inspiration photo,the bunting and the yummy colour scheme :)

Anywhoo enough waffling from me here's the LO

MVB critter :) The fliers set is Morgans favourite :)

some fussy cutting and bits and bobs from the MVB range :)

Ive bought all of the furniture for my princess studio now :D Once the floor has been levelled we can lay the floating floor and I can start constructing all the flat pack goodies and move all the shop stock in woooooohoooooooo!!So excited!
Today is day one of my new diet set by the naturopath...wish me luck!

Thanks for all your lovely comments lately *mwah*

All I ever wanted....

I was inspired by Kerrys challenge during the cybercrop this weekend at Wicked Princesses and couldnt resist scrapping one of my favourite photos from Al and I's wedding :) *sigh* I loved my wedding day :) It wasnt fancy or huge it was our closest friends and family coming together to share our special day and it was perfect, theres nothing Id change :)

I used the new vintage kit this month at Wicked Princesses "Lost and found" is a devine kit perfect for scrapping any theme with a hint of vintageness :D I added a 2crafty cherry blossom (because since I ordered them in its been "looking" at me begging me to use one lol) Im really pleased with how its come together :) Okies enough of my waffliing ...

Im loving paint at the moment....can you tell? lol

Today Al and I spent the afternoon shopping for furniture for the "Princess studio" :D OMG it was fun! My bank balance is reeling but hey I need somewhere nice to put all my shop stock hey! Ive gone for all white furniture with clean lines everywhere yummo its going to be so so nice :D Im super excited about downstairs almost being finished .....will have to organise a crop to christen it I think! If you live in the Brisbane area and would like to come along leave me a comment with your email :D

A little of what Ive been up to :)

Ive been SUCH a slack blogger :( Probably a slack friend of late too :( Ive been throwing myself into doing heaps for the shop and havent been doing the things I normally my sincerest apologies if I have been slack *slaps for me* I havent even been doing any scrapping :O :( I am getting my scrap on today though :D The house is quiet and im in the mood for some creating :)
This is a LO I did using last weeks sketch at Wicked Princesses :) Josh was told "No sports" when he broke his wrist and I couldnt resist snapping these shots of him playing soccer with his cast on far as he was concerned the "No sports ban" was only for sports requiring his arm lol He even did shotput with the cast on....using his other arm lol that boy is seriously comitted to his sports :D Anywhoo enough of my rambling here is the page...I used last months Dude kit to create it :)

Last weekend Mum and I went to the crafts and quilt show in the city :) Its a tradition for us and we normally dont miss it but life has gotten in the way the last couple so we couldnt miss this one!Off we went on the bus and had a lovely time wandering around the show (and me getting a wee bit of craftshow rage after being bashed a few too many times by rude attendees :( ) but overall it was fab :) always is fab spending the day with my mum :) I found these funky owl fabrics at the show and couldnt wait to turn them into buttons for the shop :D They are so cute hey!I love the baby ones too :) Now Ive got owls,butterflies,flowers,ice-creams,beetles,cogs,robots,strawberrys and a rainbow of spotty buttons in the shop!They are in the MVB bundles packs too :D Im batty about buttons at the moment lol :)
and playing with clay :D *sigh* I LOVE it sooooo reminds me of how much I loved it in highschool, couldnt resist a big slab of clay and am just as hooked now as I was then :) My latest clay creation for the shop it my MVB toadstools :D I cant wait to create something so I can use one..or two ;-)

and designing and packing kits!!I LOVE the process of choosing stock,matching the embellies and making the matching MVB's for kits :) These are this months kits in the shop :D Im playing with "Lost and found" Kate is playing with "Sweet Abbey" and Kerry is playing with "He's a star" They are all fabulous kits and theres something for everyone :) There will be a step by step for each of them on the forum throughout the month :)
Wooooooooooo........ok that was my attempt at a spooky start to my blurb about the spooktacular cybercrop on this weekend at Wicked Princesses :D Its going to be sooooo much fun!!Dont be scared by the theme (or my scary advert LOL) there wont be any need for halloweeny type photos ;-) There will be heaps of inspiration,fun games and great prizes!Id love to see you there!
Thanks for stopping by!

IM off to scrap yipppppppeeeeeeeeeeee!!

She's like sunshine.....

Ive had such a crazy busy week, I released the new kits for October and 2 of them sold out within 36 hours :O Wowsers thats a new record for me :D Im so thrilled with the fantastic customers I have that are such a great support to me and my shop :D

I got to have a quick play with the "Hello Sunshine" kit that sold out :) As soon as I saw the colours I knew I had to do a bright funky page and couldnt wait to use the new buttons on there :D They make a fab flower centre I think :)

Lovin those yummy colours :)

This is a sneak of what I did with the "Beau Vintage" kit :) There are still a couple left in the shop, I love the vintage colours in this kit....they are great for masculine or feminine LO's :)
and here is a sneak of my LO I did with the record sellout (in 9 hours :O !) Dude kit....I think this is my best boy kit yet!Maybe thats why it sold out so fast lol I love everything about it :)

Did anyone make cards for cardmaking day? I spent my rainy saturday at the scrapdesk making cards :) 2 of them I wont be able to show, they are for a request from Scrapbook Creations :D ;-) I love making cards especially when it means Im using some of my scraps from the leftovers from kits :D
Okies im off to have a shower and put on some painting clothes :D The renovations are starting to head towards the "almost finished" stage wooot woooot paint is on the walls the stairs are back in :D Today we are just doing the tidying up of the painted edges.Hopefully this week we can get the floor prepped ready for the new floating floor and have the lights and power points fitted :D I cannot wait to buy all the furniture for my shop down there :D Im going to be organising lots of crops at my house to take full advantage of the space :D yippee cant wait!
Have a fab day and thanks for taking the time to visit and leave a comment :) *mwah*

Im still alive and yes I have been scrapping :D

Its been sooooo long since my last scrappy post :O Im so slack :( I have at least been doing some scrapping :) Here are some of the things Ive created :)

This weeks sketch @ Wicked :D I pinched these photos from Josh's memory card ...I love them lol

Double lacey *swoon* I LOVE these My Vintage Blossoms :) ooh and a natural twister underneath ;-)

"celebrating us" was my LO inspired by Kates interior challenge last week :) Yummy colours in that bathroom Kate the great!
"one of a kind" is my example for Interior #3 my brother (who proved VERY popular with the princesses hehehe look out Horse you could have a fan club lol!) I love a grungey LO so fun and messy :D I used one of my new MVB buttons too :)
My beautiful friend Jules asked me to design some pages for her classes at home this month and I jumped at the chance :D Check out all those gorgeous colours I {{heart}} them :) Here are a few of the pages I did :)

Heres a quick rundown of the happenings in the Christie house of late....
STILL renovating downstairs
Celebrated Morgans birthday early with her last weekend -she is so super cute that little princess :)
Went and stayed with mum and dad last weekend and the dogs had another (insert rolling eyes here) fight and when Al was trying to break it up he copped a bite to his finger which has since nearly resulted in him having to go to hospital :O It turns out that the bite went to the bone between his knuckles and he had a massive infection in his hand that was starting to spread :O Scary stuff :( The Dr said things like that can end up in loss of limb or even death :O :O:O:O so lucky he went straight away when it started looking dodgy.So poor guy got a tetanus and a penicillin shot to kick start the healing process and he has a dose of antibiotics to get through.Norty dogs :(
Kloe dog has something weird going on of late too she seems to be off her food alot :$ and I discovered yesterday she has a few bumps in her chest to the vets for her , Id hate to think she was in pain and needs medicine for really hoping its nothing nasty :(
Sale is on now at wicked! Bargains storewide :) Shop til you drop lol Click the Wicked Princesses banner to take you to the shop :)
OKies better seriously hankering some lollies but we have none so a bowl of cheerios might have to do *sigh* lol
