I have tried to keep myself busy in the few weeks I've been home and here are a few of the bits n bobs I've managed to do. I have made some cards too, so as soon as I've took the pix, I'll be popping them on here too.

New Piece...

Hell Blogland, how are we all on this windy Sunday? Well I went to bed early last night not feeling 100% but woke up this morning about 6am!! Feeling better I decided to 'attack' a jewellery pattern I started yesterday which I bought from on-line. 7 hours later I was finished & really happy :^) with the end result too! lol
In between finishing the necklace off I evn managed to start a stew off, dumplings will be added later :^), put the washing on, change beds, phone my sis AND do the chickens some lunch of potatoe & carrot peelings with sweetcorn, peas and a little Museli thrown in for good measure! Mustn't make a habit of doing too much before lunch or hubby will want it doing all the time and then where would I find the time to craft? hehehe
Anyhow, here's the picture, would love to hear what you think of it...
Hugs all xx

My Very First Award!

Wow!! I can't believe I got an award!! Think its more out of sympathy than anything else lol Anyhow, as I have been chosen I now have to choose 5 other blogs that I love, so here they are... ...for nominating me & wonderful card creations!! ... for some great inspiration! ... for some wonderful links etc ...for the Friday freebie club ... for some great words of wisdom!

So to complete the task for this award I now have to tell you 3 things about me & the coming year....
1) I intend to be more creative
2) I want to learn more about designing sheets
3) I want to TRY & control my crafty-stuff so that it STAYS in my craft-room! lol

Again, would just like to say a HUGE thank-you to Gill for nominating me for this award, I hope I do her justice!
Hugs xx


Here's another of my sheets that I have designed & hopefully you will enjoy making up! The large bow on the sheet was added to decorate the box that I made for the card to go in :^)
Would love to see any cards that you make from the freebies I have left here :^) Hugs to you all xx

Tut Tut Tut

Well, I have been 'slack' as my sis would say, not been able to get on my blog for a while now. This was because of a) Christmas b) Other commitments and finally c) I have been suffering with an unbelievable tummy bug yuck!! Anyhow, less of the excuses, back now, so time to tell you what has been going on...
A friend contacted me recently & asked if I could make her some samples of cards from cd's she has designed & created herself. Talented is an understatement!! Well.... how could I refuse? Firstly it gave me a purpose to be in my craftroom and secondly I got my hands on the cd!! Whooooppeeeeeee :^) So the next x-amount of cards are from her cd.
If you like what you see, drop me a line & I'll point you in the right direction to get her VERY reasonable priced cd's (pssst from as little as £2.99)
