Monday Makers #6 and a short holiday at Dubbo

Hi everyone!
Another Monday, another makers' day.

I am writing this post in a motel room and will be checking out soon.
It is a long weekend in the ACT  (Saturday-Sunday-Monday). It has been a while since we left Canberra for a holiday. The weather has been great, so we just didn't want to miss this chance and organised a trip to Dubbo to visit the Taronga Western Planes Zoo.
I tried to post some photos here but couldn't because the connection is not great. I will write another post about this trip and put some photos of the animals when we go back home. For now, I can say that we had such a great time at the zoo; cycled around the animals' natural environment, had a lovely picnic, played alongside with my son at several playgrounds..
As you can guess, I don't have any photos of my lightbox project from last week nor can I start a new project today but I welcome yours and looking forward to seeing what you guys achieved last week and are starting today.
Here are the linky rules: 
Your project can be anything you start on that Monday as long as it makes you move and be active and creative: a new quilt, a knitting project, scrap booking, cross-stitching, baking-we don't mind yummy recipes!, a gardening project, painting your house!, tidying up the pantry!...This is your Monday and you are the maker of the day!
2. Grab the button from the side bar- this is still a WIP- or put a link back to me in your Monday post.
3. Click on "add your link" and just fill in the required areas. 
4. Please link to your specific post, not to your homepage: We would like to find your post easily.
5. Please take time to visit other links and leave a sweet comment: We love comments!
6. Share the photos of your finished Monday projects in your next link up- I am hoping you will come back again!: Who doesn't love a sweet, finished project or a "before-after" photo?
You don't have to be a follower of my blog, however; I wouldn't say no if you wanted to become one :-) 
Join and share as often as you want.


  1. Sounds like fun. I'm looking forward your pics!

  2. Great idea for a linky party. Next time I start something on a Monday I'll be sure to link up

  3. Family trips on long weekends - I remember them well! When our kids were little my husband worked 60-70 hours a week for a long time. He didn't work long weekends, so that's when we got to do stuff with the kids :) To this day, long weekends always remind me of family stuff - even though the kids are grown and prefer NOT to spend time with us now, LOL!


Thank you for visiting my blog and taking time to leave a sweet comment! I respond to comments by email. I hope to see you again!
