WOYWW 520 10th Annniversary cards for soldiers


Who would have thought that a photo of a desk all those years ago would create this extraordinary following.

Well my desk is featuring creative card making for the soldiers. I do cards for them every year.
It is very gratifying to know that we can help them send something from home and they can then send a greeting  back to their families.

As well as cards we make other stuff to send as well, we are also making little stockings to put candy cane or life savers in it.

I had help from Dayle and Faye who kindly offered to lend a hand, we had a fun day.

I do love my new craft area for visitors, my own craft area is a huge mess at the moment, maybe I'll share it next week

T Tuesday R U OK

This is a cup I bought for a charity called R U OK. 
In 2009, Gavin Larkin chose to champion just one question to honour his father and protect other families from the pain his endured.  

The extraordinary story behind R U OK? was brought to life by Australian Story in 2011. In 2017, six years after they first aired the story of Gavin Larkin, they returned to his family to see how Gavin's extraordinary legacy has helped sustain them through their grief.

He started this as his graduation project called Landmark 

 I love this T2 tea maker. You brew the tea in it
 Then you pop it on your cup and it drains away

 You've got to know the capacity of your cup, as you can see its abit short, so I just top it up with water

Again our local cafe does lots of yummy dishes, this one is one of my favourites called Singapore Noodles, I like to eat it with a chilli and soy sauce that they make, I need to make some more of my own as I've now run out. that will be a hot affair and I have to cook it outside or risk choking myself on the chilli fumes

 The same cafe serves Yum Cha on a Sunday andn for $15 its value for money, I certainly cant eat it all.
