Just a quick post to let you know that I have at last managed to persuade hubby to show the world how great he is at photography. He's done some amazing pics of Lil G, as well as loads of fabulous flowers, etc. He now has his own blog! He can be found at http://ln8images.blogspot.com/, so please take a peek if you get a minute xx

Just thought I'd share this with you. She was a Rainbow for two years and then got her pot of gold. She made her promise on Friday and is now working towards her Artist badge, amongst many others!! Proud of you, pretty baby xxxxx

Hi all! Been a few weeks since my last post - sorry, it's been mad here. And not in a good way. Lots of aggro at the office for both of us and some sad news about a friend, who now needs a coronary bypass and whose husband has cracked his spine in 3 places!! Ouch!!!

But it was my birthday last weekend (22nd) and I had a lovely day. So I wanted to share some of the cards I got and a little something special from my baby girl.

The Eiffel tower card was made by my very good and talented friend, Mrs V H (check out her stuff here), the gorgeous monochrome card was by Rosie Posie (who makes the most amazing creations) and the butterflies were from my friend, Ann. How FAB are those butterflies??? She's going to teach me to make them!!

And, handmade by the little princess herself:

Off to the Sincerely Yours craft show in Lincoln this weekend - yippee!! but watching out for those dreaded debit card pixies who nick all my money but leave me lots of yummy crafty stuff!!

Hope you all have a great Bank Hols!! xxx

Well, I had one yesterday. I have an order for a wedding card, cream and gold and the bride likes butterflies. Dead easy, I thought... Oh no. The fates were totally against me. The one in my head looked fabulous, but getting that out and onto card... not a hope. I started it at 8 in the morning and by 10 last night, I'd wasted sheets and sheets of card, loads of pearls and flowers and litres of my precious ink! And I still don't really like it.

But I'm not sure why, to be honest with you. I don't get much time to craft anymore, so I've noticed I stick to the same layout a lot of the time... BORING. Actually, I have another one to make today, so I'll try something else.

Anyway, it's done. I can't change it. And I don't have time to make another one as well as the other one.. if you see what I mean!! Hugs. xxx
