First Day of school!

Today Romy is spending her first day at school. She walked into our bedroom this morning already dressed in her school uniform :) There was no hesitation or tears when we left which made it much easier for me to walk out of the classroom. There are only 16 kids in her class and she will have a great time I'm sure.
I'll leave you with another LO from the February Kit which you can order

    Have a good week!

    This little "Secret Box" and "Secret Book" from Maya Road would make a great little present for Valentines Day! You can get it at
  • Designing Memories.
  • It is the February Mini Kit.
    Thank you again to all the girls that have given me such a positive response to my Kit and put messages and links on their blogs! It means so much to have your support!

    Less then a week to go before my little girl starts school and I haven't got a uniform, no shoes, nothing. That will give me something to do for the next few days I guess :)
    Have a good week :)

    First time

    published in an American Magazine. This LO is in the March issue of Memory Makers. It is in a way one of my favourite pages because the journaling is very honest and it is about me and my journey here to Australia. There are not enough pages about myself and it is something I'm trying to work on.
    There is less then a week to go before
  • Designing Memories
  • will have the first Kit up! There will be a Main Kit every month as well as an Add-On, a Mini Kit and a Gypsy Bag. I'm excited now that it is getting closer to the date! The website is still undergoing a few changes but it is ready to go....
    Have a good week!

    Saying Goodbye

    My friend Katja's visit has come to an end (Yes her name is Katja too). She has continued her trip this morning to Fraser Island. Despite not having had any contact with each other for 20 years we just got on like an old pair of shoes. It was great to catch up on each others lives and we promised we would stay in touch this time. She absolutely loves Australia and specially Sydney. I'm sure she will be back sooner rather than later...Hier is a pic of us being silly together.

    In 8 days my parents will arrive for a 2 month visit. I can't wait to spend some time together. They will be here for Romy's first day of school and I know there will be a 'Zuckertute' in their suitecase. It is a tradition in Germany to give the child a cone filled with sweets for their first day of school. If you don't know what a 'Zuckertute' is you are really missing out on something...:)
    And here is another little sneak peek for the January Kit...
    The Kit will be colourful and just right for all your summer photos...
