I have graduated from university! Whee! I had my ceremony yesterday and it's really only hit me now that I'm completely done!

There next few pics are mainly from graduation. It was exciting though I was still quite nervous too.

Jason and I trying to take photos. It wasn't working for us yesterday.

Mum and me. Dad was trying to do all sorts of shots. He took this from the ground lol

Jason and me. These photos are all before the ceremony. Jase gave me this cute little graduation bear. And he surprised me with it when he came over in the morning to pick me up. He also got me a book which I'll show later.

This was probably one of the best photos. My parents were having a little snack before the ceremony.

This was after the ceremony with our celebratory glass of champagne. The ceremony didn't go long either. But I think it's because they have been having ceremonies all month plus there was three on yesterday.

And outside the hall at uni. Finally showing a pic with dad in it as well.

My degree! It's not the greatest photo but I did it quickly this morning. And the little tube which they handed to us on stage but it was empty. Which actually picked up our certificates and other things around the back when we came off the stage =)

This dvd is from my parents as a little grad present. They know I love Narnia and C.S Lewis. So it was really lovely.

And this is from Jason. He bought me the little grad bear and the book Atonement! We had just watched an advanced screening last week and it was amazing! So the book should be good.

An aerial shot of my uni campus. It really is a beautiful uni and I never really appreciated it until now. I googled this picture.

This is a gorgeous photo of 'The Great Court.' That's what it was called. And the grass is super green so it can't be that new. Seeing as things aren't that green right now.

So I want to say goodbye UQ. Weirdly enough I miss it now though I didn't a few days ago.

There are more things I want to post later on.

Christmas is almost here

It's only about 15 days until Christmas. I can't believe how close it is already. I went shopping with Jason on my day off for presents, though we still have a few to go. It was absolutely crazy and it means I have much to look forward to working in toys =p It's been so busy and I have also had some of the worst customers, but then that's retail. It's almost to be expected.

Anyway, I am about to send the last notecards out tomorrow I hope. Here they are...

This is being sent off to Heather from Jeweled Elegance.

And this one is for Ellia from Green Bean Baby. So watch out for your packages ladies. Though it might take a bit longer as it's coming from Australia.

Oh other news. I graduate from uni next week!! On the 17th December 2007 I will be a graduate of the Bachelor of Arts major in sport studies from the University of Queensland. It's very exciting and I will be embarking on a new journey in my life. I feel like I've been studying for years now. I'm very excited for what is to come.

Runner up

Well as I mentioned in my last post I had a third place/runner up set. Which went to Anastasia. I have finally finished making them. So here is a preview.

I changed my envelope template. I think I prefer this style to the old one I was using. And I have also started making little stickers to seal the envelopes using my handy little sticker maker =)So watch out Anastasia for your package soon!

Oh and this is how I packaged up the note cards which I sent off to Shae. I hope it arrives soon.

And for my little sample packs, which will basically be the same as the one above, will be going to Heather from Jeweled Elegance and to Ellia from Green Bean Baby. I'm in the process of making those now =)

Also had my church young adults formal on the weekend but can't be bothered to upload photos from it right now lol. But I will leave you with this photo.

This Christmas tree in the city. Jason and I went shopping Friday night. The picture doesn't give the tree justice. Which looks gorgeous! Totally unrelated but my hair has grown a lot since I got it cut.

Ohh and one last thing. Most likely only of interest to me, but the new trailer for Prince Caspian has just come out!! Yeeee! I'm an absolute Narnia fanatic and it was so exciting to watch it. Especially because it only came out today. Eee! Can't wait for the movie next year!

So picking a another name out of the bowl for the runner up.

The runner up is Anastasia of Anastasia drawing and dreaming I first discovered her blog through Natashas Virtual Vintage Prom. And I adore her blog already. She is a talented illustrator and I look forward to reading her blog more often.

So I will contact all the winners by email to get their shipping addresses. And I want to thank everyone who left a comment on the blog and I truly wish I could give all of you something. I came up with another idea of making up little sample packs and the rest of those who entered will have another chance of winning them! I still have to make them up but the other 16 lovely people will have another chance =) I will blog about that soon.

Thank you again to all of you lovely people! I truly appreciate it soo much. Watch out for the next blog with winners to my sample packs =)
