Happy New Year from Beautiful Port Stephens!

Hi Everyone! Happy New Year!
Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas.
Sorry its taken me so long to post...I totally underestimated how massive it was going to be to move interstate and start a new job at Christmas time! But we are here in beautiful Port Stephens now and loving it!

We had a good drive down from Katherine, checked out the Queensland outback, caught up with some friends and family, went to Australia Zoo and had a few days on the Gold Coast.

The biggest shock to the system for me was going back to work. I started a new job as OHS Advisor at Onesteel Waratah Steel Mill (the old Comsteel - which is where I worked before I had Breanna - but in a different job) only a couple of days after we got here (before we even moved into our house!). It's going to take some getting used to!

We moved into our house just before Christmas and have been madly unpacking and getting settled ever since. Its fantastic to be living in our own home again and having family around us. Unfortunately we had quite a bit of furniture damaged in the removal so my office is minus a desk and bookcase which is a pain, but otherwise its all unpacked now and I'm itching to start creating again soon!

As I haven't made anything since leaving Katherine I don't have anything new to show you, but I do have a couple of Christmas gifts I made before leaving. The first is a quick calendar I decorated for my Mum. It features the new Enchante DS papers (love them!) from the Summer Mini caty...

The next pictures are from a mini book I made for my Brother and his girlfriend of their trip to visit us in the NT last Aug/Sept. The book and papers are CM (thank you Lyn!) but I have done most of the titles with SU! stamps. If you'd like any more detail on products used please email me (kaznrik@bigpond.com). Here it is:
