The randomness of Monday

Hello lovely people! When Monday rolls around I always feel all over the place. A few things to mention.

It was supposed to be our week of organisation last week but it didn't really happen. My cousin and her hubby were here for a few days from America so we spent those days with them. By then we got a bit lazy and didn't do much. I did start cleaning my creative space though. At the moment it's a mess because I have all these boxes full of memories and I'm sorting through it and trying to decide what to do with it all. Leave them in boxes or put them in a journal??

We did get go to the Sunshine coast with the fam to show my cousin and her husband where my brother Alvin and his wife Melly are moving back to.

Considering it's still winter it got quite warm that day. I decided to see how cold the water was.



It was still freezing but the warmth of the sun was lovely.

I can't wait for when we can go to the beach all the time. I miss our warmer weather. That was a lovely taste of summer.

Anyway, a few things I have to do this week...

♥ Finish and send my letter for the Dear Darlings pen pal project.
♥ Send some postcards for Postcrossing (I need to find some good ones)
♥ Package up some stud earrings for a giveaway (I'm not sure if I can mention where it's happening yet)
♥ Start on my journal with Jasmine
♥ Put my mixed cd's together Bianca's cd swap.
♥ Continue cleaning and organising
♥ Purchase more Hunger Games merchandise (and prepare myself for the release of Mockingjay next week!!!!)
♥ Put my giveaway for the blog together
♥ Plan our overseas trip (hopefully - more about that later)
♥ Work on my Just Because You're Lovely Swap which you have until Wednesday (18th) to still join. I've already put all the participants into a spreadsheet so far and have started matching people up. I'm seriously trying my best to match you with the right people :)

Have a beautiful week everyone!

FUN! I have to finish my Dear Darlings letters, too--I've only mailed out one so far! I'm very excited about your swap too, lady. :)

I LOVED Hunger Games and haven't read the second one yet, but am very eager to!

Oh Cd's I need to do that!

I'm meant to be being organised all this month but its not really happening either!

Love your photos of the beach :) I always paddle no matter how cold it is!

steph said...

you're so busy, lady! but i gotta agree with you that it makes life more exciting when we have lots of things and activities to do rather than just slacking at home. Anyhow, thanks to your introduction, I just signed up for both the Dear Darlings penpal and your just because you're lovely swap! :)

I can't wait to visit Sunshine Coast! I think my friends and I will be visiting there next week.

I wish I could join your swap! :( Just that I can't commit to it right now, my August budget has blown through the roof and I've been so busy with uni. :( Hopefully I'll be able to take part in the next one! Cos this swap sounds lovely.

Hope you're well, dearest. <3

How good is the Sunshine Coast? Mr LG and I are going there for part of our honeymoon!

I've been collecting pretty things for your journal :) Eckersleys in the city (on Edward St) has a bunch of envelopes and pre-folded blank cards in different colours and sizes for $1 for a pack of 10! I got 110 different types of card/envelopes for $11! Bargain!
