Spirit of Summer is a charity collab benefiting the
Victorian bushfire Appeal. Not only has this affected Australians, but human beings the world over. 29 Australian and international designers have banded together to help support many Australians, animals and communities decimated by one Australia's worse national disasters.

What happened? On Saturday, Feb 7, the temperature in Melbourne was 33'c by 9am. By noon it was 40'c and by 2.50 pm soared to 47.9'c (a state record).Thousands of people were also about to start running from the inferno that would
become one of Australia's worst peacetime disasters. Trees ignited in the blink of an eye. By the time people heard the roar, it was too late to flee ahead of the flames.Unfortunately no one or thing could have stopped this inferno that wiped out communities, bushland, and lives within minutes. Many towns now cease to exist!.After watching interviews with survivors, many say that they cant put into words what they went through, saw or felt on that day.Here are just a few pictures(courtesy of google,The age,sbs &abc Aust.) of this horrible disaster:Why is this charity kit different?No money will change hands at Scrap N Tag (our host website).
We are asking for your support by donating DIRECTLY to one of the following charities:

Lackluster of a day

The day started off by me taking Logan to the Dr.. oh joy!  He has been getting into trouble for not paying attention and not listening.. to which he always says.. I CANT HEAR !  well we do know he has hearing issues.. so I was tired of hearing it.. and off we went.. they think he has fluids blocked in his tubes or something like that.. so a month of intense allergy and nasal drying stuff then we will test his hearing again.  Ive been having my overy pain again.. so after we went to breakfast and I took him to school. I went back to bed.. didnt get up till 2pm!  and Im ready for bed as I type!(its only 5:15!)  I needed to take some yearbook pictures so decided to walk around the yard and take some project 365 pictures too.. first chance ive had to take any in a week!  one day im going to have to go further then my yard can you image  all 365 in my yard or home.. that would be a challenge for sure!

Since I started late and have missed times.. I will more then likely be posting several when I do post.. tis the life of me!

Several people tried to help me get her.. but the people kept jumping from site to site.. offering her for more and more.. insane.. but it is what it is.. so as of now.. I have no idea where she is or what happened to her.. sad sad.. but ......... there is always a butt......... haha.. now im getting threatening emails.. well GEE who could be doing that? lol exactly.. im ignoring them.. like I have time to go back to silly stuff like that.. Hubby is not so impressed tho.. and has started keeping a file on them.. and is sending abuse emails to qwest.. since thats the provider in which the mails are coming from.. and qwest said.. keep em and take them to the police.. just in case who ever it is.. decides to try something to our house or pets or kids or what ever.. Can you believe it? over a puppy? which I offered to BUY! crazy I tell ya.. so THANKS to all those that offered us your hopefull wishes..
I was checking out my peeps blogs this morning.. ya know.. cuz I dont wanna do the work that has to be done at home in less then 3 and over at Da Wenchies blog.. she had this tarot thingy.. well I too ws curious.. so here is mine

You are The Lovers

Motive, power, and action, arising from Inspiration and Impulse.

The Lovers represents intuition and inspiration. Very often a choice needs to be made.

Originally, this card was called just LOVE. And that's actually more apt than "Lovers." Love follows in this sequence of growth and maturity. And, coming after the Emperor, who is about control, it is a radical change in perspective. LOVE is a force that makes you choose and decide for reasons you often can't understand; it makes you surrender control to a higher power. And that is what this card is all about. Finding something or someone who is so much a part of yourself, so perfectly attuned to you and you to them, that you cannot, dare not resist. This card indicates that the you have or will come across a person, career, challenge or thing that you will fall in love with. You will know instinctively that you must have this, even if it means diverging from your chosen path. No matter the difficulties, without it you will never be complete.
