Post-Apocalyptic Mojo-ness

Sometimes I don't know what's holidays, or the post-holiday-trauma-in-my-house days!! Yay verilly, we survived and achieved a whole lotta "firsts".

But first, to the Mojo that arrived these last few days (thank goodness)
Just the FACTS {ma'am} - the July challenge at Scrap The Boys
Couldn't decide which boy to do, so bung them both on a layout....Mumma can't play favourites ;)

 Wanted to mix some real soft elements with more edgier ones. Think it worked. Me likey likey.
 Mackinley's stats..........
 Rainer's stats..............

M.W.A.H. (Mother Warriors Are Here) - for Bon's Write Now challenge, thanks to Skye xoxo
 The crux of this journalling challenge was to write in a Fairytale style.....and I obliged in true epic proportions.
 Am sick to death of my crappy white StazOn ink pad, so I've switched to acrylic paint....bahahahaaa
I'm pretty sure I saw this groovy rolling technique on the Prima blog. Needed to steal that one!!!!

TEAS-day - Charmane's online class page at Bon's Scraps
She shared loads of very cool techniques. Glad I joined in. Every Tuesday, since earlier this year, is now a TEA ONLY day. I found these teas already blended at one of my Organic Grocers and picked one up for Mackinley as well. He no longer has night terrors and is a little nicer in the morning.
Me? Well, I've been sick twice in one week and have bounced back quickly (like a 20-something chikkie-babe LOL) I'll credit the tea drinking for that one.

And some boring family bits....
Rainer made it through 2 "first" appointments - the Chiropractor and the Dentist without incident...woohoooo!!
Mackinley made it through the holidays without being suspended from all electronic privileges *snort*
Hubby and I went to the wedding of Rainer's God-Father last Sunday.
Had a lovely relaxing time, but was as sick as a dog much later that night. Have no idea why. Everyone says "stress", I say "der!!!" but was coping well by Monday afternoon. So nice to be out with my Man.
