Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

WOYWW ~ hullo again everyone!

Hullo everyone - how is your New Year going - trust it is well so far - lovely day again here, and a bit cooler than yesterday (27c) just perfect...
On post down below this you can see how we are enjoying things downunder.. in our summertime.
 I thought would drop by and join folks on What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday, even though am not crafting really yet, sorry for not being around much lately abut hopefully things are on the up and up :D

To the desk! this actually did not happen on desk as did most of at my sisters. I took images and used her pencils mostly.. she has lovely set of Prismacolor.
As you can see there were few House mouse ones there and also some of my Artneko ATC stamps. I have to do a Yellow and black Oriental card so was playing with these images for that... 
Notice please before I forget and am in trouble, the Monkeys are waving hi and happy New year to everyone!!
Deer monkey still has His Christmas shirt on cos he reckoned you didn't get to see it enough in December :D and Méchant loves to wear our WOYWW badge so both happy..
I will close with few photos:
Creek Sunset taken on mobile in early December.

Last night after a 31c day ~ in Oz, summertime

Our roses are just magnificent at the moment. They loved the rain earlier last month and the new garden edge built up around the bed {thanks Greg}!
 

To join in the fun, drop by Julia's Stamping Ground!   Happy WOYWW, everyone!

Thanks so much for popping over a for peek and chat and may God bless your day wherever you maybe.

have to agree with everyone I love the pics! I griped and complained about the 100 deg days this past summer and now the 9 deg days have me whining cause the arthritis is giving me fits...might have to look into location changes to the south in winter. BTW love the roses! Hope you have a Happy and Prosperous New Year! I look forward to seeing your posts in 2013! Vickie #17

Goodness, everyone has already said everything I thought, the roses, your colouring, the images, just fantastic. Happy New Year to you and your family Tracey R ±48

Elizabeth said...

Beautiful photographs, Shaz. Just the reference to a 'Creek' is enough to make me sigh - we don't have creeks here in Scotland and it sounds so exotic :) Your roses are simply stunning too. Hope you are well and that your eye is much improved after your operation. I can't remember if I've told you but because of your advice and gentle scolding I finally got around to visiting the optician who detected early signs of cataracts and further deterioration in my eyesight so I now have some lovely new varifocal glasses - so thank you for that nudge :) Wishing you a happy and healthy year ahead and I look forward to reading more of your posts throughout the year. Hugs, Elizabeth x #54

Happy New Year! Pretty images being colored on the desk. Beautiful roses too. Brigita #100

butlersabroad said...

What stunning photos Shaz, hard to contemplate mid summer when it's gloomy, snowy and well below freezing here, but I do love the seasons and wouldn't be without them. Love the flowers too, very pretty. I received a set of Prismacolours for Christmas too and I'm really looking forward to practicing with them and colouring in some images. We saw the fireworks from Sidney on You Tube on New Years Eve, and the ones from London too, very impressive. I hope you have a very happy and healthy 2013.

Hugs

Hi Shaz,

Beautiful roses and photography! How I wish it were summer here! We got snow on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. We are in a drought so any moisture is welcome.

I hope you and yours have a wonderful 2013!

Hugs,
Kay

Julia Dunnit said...

You're right Shaz, the roses are magnificent, how sweet a sight they are. Love your sunset photos, makes me homesick...for summer! Your colouring is gorgeous, sure hope that it won't be long before you feel back in the saddle, sad that it's taken longer than I thought it would for you!

JoZart said...

Hi Shaz,
Thanks so much for your breath of Summer in the midst of our miserable Winter. Roses all the way. Beautiful.
Happy Healthy New Year wishes to you. I've started so well with my family get together. Dreams do come true and prayers are answered. The little one was ill and we thought they couldn't come but it all came together at the last minute. I'm so grateful.
My last wish is now for good health for her when she is off her medication on 9 weeks. I'm storming Heaven!
lots of love jo x

Anne said...

Lovely photos and gorgeous roses. It has been a grey wet day today but was brightened considerably when my D.I.L. visited with my granddaughters. Haven't managed any crafting yet - sorting everything out ready. Happy New Year Anne x #120

Hi Shaz, hope you had a wonderful Christmas... and wishing you everry happiness for 2013. Love seeing your desk, well sisters :-) Your roses are stunning, they are simply one of the prettiest flowers. Enjoyed seeing your photographs, such a beautiful area....

Buttons said...

Looks like you've been busy with those images. Some real beauties there Shaz. As for the bright ball in your sky I have a vague recollection of something similar hovering over the UK a long time ago. Looks like it is now happily ensconced in the Southern Hemisphere! Ahh well. Here's hoping you have a fantastic 2013. Hugs, Jenny #47

Nan G said...

Beautiful roses!! I like the images you've colored. They'll make nice card for sure. New Year's greetings! Nan 78

RosC said...

G'day Shaz, and Happy New Year to you. Sorry I missed calling by at Christmas but I do hope you had a peaceful and happy time.

Your roses are picture perfect - what a thrill to have had the rain to help them thrive so well. We are starting to dry out a bit here but still thankful for lots of greenery. The desk is interesting and I am planning to create more ATCs this year myself. Beaut work.

Take care, and may 2013 be kind to you.

Always so love your photos that you share. Your roses are plumb gorgeous. Bet they smell divine as well. And how can you not love the little House Mousie? So cute. Such a tidy desk too. Hope you had a wonderful day, and feeling much improved with each day's passing. Hugs to you, and see you lots in 2013 I hope.

MaggieC said...

I reckon all our roses have drowned over the last 12 months, the raspberries definitely did. Hope you are on the road to recovery again and that 2013 is a good year for you in all ways. xx Maggie #45
