Five for Friday {Saturday here in Oz!}

Yup, it's certain. I NEED to start showing my b-log some more lovin'. What better way than a Five for Friday?
1. Look what the super sweet Lori from Teaching with Love and Laughter sent me after receiving a set of my new Simple Borders?!

She seriously made. my. day!!!! It was such a sweet gesture and it put a smile on my face for the entire day. Click the picture above to check out some of my borders.

2. I'm trying to be healthy. Crowd laughs. No. I'm serious. People around me are just so good at looking after themselves and I...well, I'm just not! So, to kick it off, I made a healthy dinner. Look!
Chicken kebabs with mushroom couscous! Look at me being a good girl?

3. I've volunteered to have my teaching BFF to come in and observe me next week as a part of our school's move towards providing feedback for teachers. Even though it's my BFF, I'm still nervouuuuuuuuuuuuuuus! It's always a little bit scary having someone 'observe' you. I heart her though so on the other hand, I'm thuper exthited!

4. I'm going to boast a bit here...I reached 1000 followers on Pinterest yesterday! I was probably a little bit more excited than was necessary. Let's just say, the BF does NOT understand. Pffft!

5. This is what happens to your favourite pair of wedges when you come home from your besties engagement party and your 4 and half month old dog wakes up before you because you are verrrrry tired the next day.
Mega. Sad. Face.

Lucky he's so dang cute!!!

Some Simple Border Love

I have been neglecting my little ol' blog BIG TIME lately. I've taken on a few more responsibilities at school, as our year level mentor is on leave, and I've been trying to make sure I stay organised and do a good job ;-)

In other news, I've found a new love...creating borders!

Mel from Graphics at the Pond has given me some hot tips on creating hand-drawn borders and I think she has born a new obsession of mine.

Take a look...
Simple Borders #1

Simple Borders #2

Simple Borders #3
Simple Border #3 set are all hand-drawn by me! I LOVE it! I've always enjoyed doodling and have found a way to put it to good use.

Each set contains 8 different style borders. Each of them come with a clear and white background. So that's 16 borders per set!

I've decided to bundle my Simple Borders sets. They're in a zip file and contain all 3 sets at the moment.

It's a file that I've decided to add to so it will continue to grow. Once you've purchased it, you can simply re-download to get any additional borders I create. However, that also means that as I add to it the price will go up slightly.

Sooooo, get if you're a border addict (like me) head on over and check out the bundle! Click on the picture below. Grab it now while it's cheap ;-)
