G'Day mates! Sorry I have been MIA for almost a month. I just returned from a trip of a lifetime - 18 days in Australia! My step son is getting his master's degree in viticulture (wine making) and he is studying at the University of Adelaide in South Australia for the year so, of course, we had to go for a visit. :-)

Here are just a few highlight photos - I'm still going through the 2300 we took! I promise not to post them all here. I don't like to post on a public forum such as my blog or Facebook when I will be gone on a trip like this so please pardon my silence.

Thanks to ALL of our over 1000 JUGS followers. You are AMAZING and we couldn't be happier to have so many interested crafters playing along with us each week.

Ok - here's a few pics...

Snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef - WOW!!

Thanks for hanging in there with me during my absence!

Hugs n Smiles.
