It's like a loony bin round here at the moment! No cardage to display, I'm afraid, right now... sorry. I plan to rectify that this weekend, hopefully.
Parties - who'd have 'em??
The eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed the countdown at the bottom of the page for Lil G's birthday, which is coming up on St Paddy's Day. So someone had the brilliantly bright idea of taking twenty (yes TWENTY!) 6-year-olds bowling for her birthday party..... Now who would come up with a stupid idea like that????? Yep..... me.
Of course, it only occurred to me AFTER we started planning the 40th birthday bash at the end of the month that her birthday was before our party and I needed to sort something out a bit sharpish!! Seemed like a good plan at the time... ho hum.
Oh, and the black & white birthday bash - another great idea. I want to take Lil G out shopping to find a beautiful black/white party dress...... SHE wants to go wearing what she wore for Halloween. Marvellous, innit?
And to top it all off, it's hubby's birthday NEXT WEEK. Bugger.
So how are things with all of you?

Well it's been a long time coming but we (my oldest schoolfriend and I) are at last celebrating our 40th birthdays!! Yes, it was last year, but we figured that providing we party before either of us turns 41, it didn't matter!

So I made these. They have RSVP cards and directions in the wallet. The papers are Pink Petticoat Little Swirls. TFL x

Yet more Pink Petticoat papers! And the very clever hinges are from the super-duper Poppicrafts - where else? x


.. with my new Stampdendous "Baby's Bath" stamp, Pink Petticoat papers and Poppicrafts embellies. TFL xxx


Thought I'd share a bit of cardage with you... Papers are Pink Petticoat and embellies are from the brilliant Poppicrafts. TFL x

Now there's a title for a post, eh? How you all doing? Not too snowed in, I hope (although it would mean no work and lots of crafting LOL!). We got told the BIG snow would be happening at 2 pm today but so far it's been a bit disappointing up here... ho hum.

Been back to the Chinese Clinic and had another go with the needles (got brave with the hands, but still can't do the feet - eeuuwww!) and got beaten up with the soup ladle again. Works brilliantly and if you've ever suffered with aches and pains and never considered this treatment, go for it. My friend has been seeing a physio for 6 months now and has a shoulder injury. She booked into to see an acupunture chap and feels better after one session than she has for 6 months! Doesn't work for everyone, but I firmly believe in it - nothing against physios, either! Last one I saw was a bit of a dish!!
Now then. It's my Mummy's birthday tomorrow, so I made her this:

It's that "when I get old I shall wear purple" poem by Jenny Joseph - brilliant!

My clever little baby-waby made this:

She stamped it herself, punched out the tag, chose the ribbon and stuck the sparkles on - all by her purdy little self - cool, eh?
