It feels like ages since my last post and life in the Maher household has been quite hectic to say the least. I have been keeping very busy in the last six months, I ran in my first marathon and competed in my first Triathlon, had my 30th birthday party which was a fantastic night. All of my friends and family packed into the Exchange Hotel here in Townsville for a night of eating, dancing and a few beverages.

Christmas which I got my very own RED Kenwood Mix Master, the maiden voyage was White Chocolate Friands which were to die for.
Nigella eat your heart out, the new Kenwood...
And hubby has had surgery on his wrist and we have had to travel to Ipswich in Queensland a couple of times for the Operations. Thankfully it is healing quite well and the doctor is very happy with the result, the injury that he sustained was quite severe therefore causing the ligament in his wrist to snap off the bone and if the surgery wasn't a success his wrist would have been fused together which is the worst outcome of all considering that his work requires him to have full function of this hand. But thankfully this was not the case.
A little wile ago I was lucky enough to be asked to present a Workshop Wow at our Cairns Regional Conference and apart of my thank-you from Stampin Up I was able to pick one stamp set out of the IBC for FREE. I have had my eye on Awash with Flowers for some time but didn't want to part with my $$ so I knew exactly what set I would choose with my thank-you voucher. I have only just put it together and used it for the first time to make a good friend of mine a birthday card. And I have also used for the first time the Masking Technique, this technique has been around since I started stamping but have always felt nervous when attempting it and never have, but to be honest it is so simple and effective. I am submitting this in Jac-Inks very first challenge, congratulations ladies on your new venture.
So that is what I have been up to, I hope this year I have time to get creative again.
Take care all
