6,7,8 & 9

#6 - Favourite super hero/why?
Do the Incredible's count?  "we're deeeaaad, we survived, but we're deeeaaaaad".  I love that movie.  It just makes me laff.

#7 - A picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you

Pretty self explanatory I think....

#8 - Short term goals for this month and why.

Well, my goal for this month is to RELAX for the first time in YEARS.  I'm going overseas to visit with my husby's family for a WHOLE MONTH.  (If you break into my house I will kill you!)  I will be shopping, crafting, playing tourist, driving, exploring, visiting, laughing, taking loads of piccies, and it is going to be bliss!

#9- Something you’re proud of in the past few days.

I stood up for myself in a way I never have done before.  It absolutely destroyed my nerves but I did it and I don't regret it AT ALL cause I did nothing wrong.  And let me add that I am non-confrontational.

I promise I will have more crafty things to be blogging about soon!!  For now you're stuck with  mumbo jumbo all about me!!

(2 more sleeps till I fly away in a jet plane)


I'll have this in green thanks.

I'll have this bedroom, but in green instead of yellow. 


My Wonderful WIP

So here is what I'm working on.  Remember these guys?...

Well, they're still sitting in a stack and I haven't made them into a wall hanging yet.  Maybe when I get back into the country.

And then there's the music box...

The handle is still not actually screwed onto the lid..

And then there's the magnet pegs..

Yeah, they're still not finished.

Either is the flower clip I asked your advice on the other day..


Check out more Wonderful WIP's over at The Clip Cafe.

Few more items.

#3 A picture of you and your friends.

I don't really have friends.  But I would consider this guy sitting next to me my bestest friend...

#4 - A Habit I Wish I didn't have.

I have a habit of telling myself in my mind what needs to be done.  And then having a conversation in my mind about why I can do it later.  So my bad habit is procrastination and it is something that I definately need to work on!

#5 - A picture of somewhere you've been.

Here's a few neat places I've visited.

Washington DC.

NASA - Houston Space Station (with my parents, hubby, hubby's parents & hubby's uncle)

Temple Square, Salt Lake City, Utah.

What it means.

#2 - The meaning behind your blog name.

When I was little, I wrote in my journal every week.  I also liked writing poems, and drawing and things like that.  Whenever I would finish writing or doing whatever I was doing, I would sign off like this.
(Obviously I would put the year that it currently was.)

I don't even know why I did it.  I guess I was an eccentric kid.  But it was my brand.  My sign off.  And I always did it.  So when I started a craft blog, it was clear what my blog name should be.  A Christy Production.  The products of Christy.

Weird but true.

So here we go.

#1 -  A recent picture of me and 15 facts (I kinda did the fact thing recently but I'll try and think of different things to make it interesting).

1. I like it when craft glue dries on my skin and I can peel it off.  
2. I move constantly in my sleep.
3. I hate it when my feet get too warm, cause then they feel like they're burning.
4. I don't like normal sized towels.  I only like using bath sheets.
5. I am a hairdresser who hates getting her own hair done!
6. I have to wash my hair every day or else it looks like a grease pit.  I am grateful every day to my dad for giving me his scalp.
7. At 25, I am still getting zits.  I thought this would have finished at around 18.  But no.  
8. I have a random painting in my craft room that I refuse to throw out.  It's of two cows.  I don't even like cows, but have some strange connection with the painting.
9. I keep just about every scrap of fabric, and I USE it too!
10. I have started dreaming about craft.  They're such lovely dreams.  Last night I dreamt about blue floral vintage sheets in an Op Shop.
11. My have really unattractive toes.  My big toe looks like a Dim Sim.  It's a family joke.
12. I rarely shave my legs.  
13.  I hate two storey houses.
14. I don't like being driven around.  I'd much prefer to be the driver.
15. I have Sri Lankan blood in me.  

Turns out most of the facts are about my body.  Sharing is caring right?  haha... Lucky you!  

I know I said earlier today I might be absent from my blog but tonight I decided my blog is exactly what I need right now so thus the challenge to do the 30 different things.  But reality is also that I am going overseas this week and am working extra days and so yeah, we'll see what happens eh.
See ya :)


Dear Bloggy friends.

I might be absent until next week, a few days after we arrive in the USA.  I have some things I have to smooth over before I leave the country, along with needing to organise things around my house and pack what we're taking.  Hopefully once we get to our destination all will be resolved and I'll be able to relax and maybe do a little bit of crafting.  I'll be limited in what I can do over there as I of course won't have my stash!  I hope you all have a successful creative week and look forward to reading all about your successes on your blogs!
