Busy, Busy, Busy

Evening All, I hope you've all had a lovely weekend and maybe even managed to get a bit of crafting done.  I had a lovely weekend with the family, I love having all my Grandchildren around me, even if I do need a lie down once everyone goes. On Sunday I decided to have a clear out and glad I did, I've found things that I forgot I had bought, even found 2 packs of card that I had bought about 8 months ago.
My 2 youngest Megan and Makenzy decided we would make some cakes today as part as Home School, I only watched while they did everything between them and did really good.  Here is what they made

I've also did a bit of crafting myself and this is what I got up to

thought a couple of quick cards.


It's Warm

Hi, I hope you all have had a lovely day and maybe even got a bit of crafting done. It was going to be my class tonight, but as you can see from this post I haven't got there. As I mentioned my car went in for it's MOT on Monday and still not got it back :(
One of the things I love doing most is stamping, I find you can do so much with just a few stamps rather than digi images. I have that many stamps that I have decided that I'm going to sort them all out this weekend and I'm going to use the stamps that are still brand new to make some cards. I know a lot of you will have some you have never used.
I've just been printing some 'My Besties' downloads out so I think you can guess what I'll be doing later and tomorrow. I'll be using my pencils as I've just noticed that I have left my pens at the caravan and we're not going up until next week. It's funny how we decide to use different things, while at one point I wouldn't use anything but my pens and my pencils just for highlighting the image, but now I love using my pencils and not my pens. Have any of you found you do that?

Well I'm away to play with this digi. Have a lovely night and I hope you find a few minutes to do some crafting x



Hello Everyone, sorry I missed yesterday. My car went in for it's MOT yesterday and failed, but never mind it's getting put right so I can have it back. Even though I don't use it everyday I miss it when it's not here. I hope to get it back tomorrow morning as I'm at the doctors at lunch time, if it isn't back my dad will take me, but it will mean I can't do my class at night time.
 I've been sorting my craft things out, well some of them lol. I don't think we really know just how much we do have. I've been trying to sort my paper and card out, putting colours together, so I know if I have paper for inserts that will go with the card I'm making (nothing better than opening a card and seeing the insert that matches the card).

This is one that I love making, I make a few every year as I think you can do so much with it. I will doing this tomorrow with my class along with another Christmas card, which I will put on tomorrow night once we have done it.
Hope you have all had a lovely day and thank you for popping along to have a look x


Not Far Away

Hello Everyone, Well it's that time of the year when we think more about Christmas. I wonder how many of you have started or even finished doing your Christmas cards, also your presents.  I have done some Christmas cards but not the extra special ones that I need, presents are a different matter I haven't even started. With the amount of children and grandchildren I have I need to start soon.
Megan and Makenzy have asked if we can make treat bags up for everyone, the bags will have toffee, fudge, peppermint creams etc. I'm going to make some candles as the older girls all love having candles so I'll make them to match the rooms they have. Might even have a try at making some soap something I've never done before, if anyone have any ideas for me, let me know, thank you.

I had a bad day yesterday that why I never blogged, but feel a lot better today. I've made a couple of cards up to now and I think I might colour some images in this afternoon. That's if I have time as it's one of my grandson's 3rd birthday and he's having a small party for the family.
I'm not sure where I got this image and papers from, I have them in my draw so thought I would make it up.

 Tatty Teddy, always a hit with people, I have a few friends that love teddies but don't like Forever friends so I always make Tatty Teddy.

This kit was a free download that I got 2 years ago and I've always loved it, it's so easy to make up, you get 2 different greetings you can pick, Merry Christmas or Let It Snow.
Thank You for taking the time to pop over and have a look at what I've been up to, I'm off now to have a cuppa and maybe do some colouring x


Busy Busy

Good Afternoon, Friends, Followers and Crafters, it's been a lovely morning so let's hope it stays like that. All I've been doing lately is colouring in, it's so relaxing just sitting, but never done anything with the images I've been doing, so this morning I decided to do some embossing. I have loads of white cards so I thought I would emboss some 6x6 card fronts, so I have some with texture when I need them. Not sure what I'm going to do with them at the moment, but like all crafters I'll find some way to use them.
I decided to write a list of everything I would like to do in 2015, it's amazing once you start just how many things you end up wanting to do. I've got 20 things on my list, things such as:- tell someone special you love them everyday, do a bit of crafting everyday.

Here are a few more images that I've been colouring, along with a card I've made

Well I'm off to do a bit more crafting while Megan and Makenzy (my 2 youngest children) do some more school work x


Good Day

Evening All, didn't have any sleep last night but felt really good today, not sure why but not complaining. I've made a few cards and then did something different.

I decided in the holidays to do what all the kids are doing at the minute and thats 'Loom Bands', I have made a few different things, so today I thought I would have a play around with them again and here's what I made

I made an Owl, I made one on holiday as well. I've made a bracelet but haven't uploaded it yet so I'll do that tomorrow.

Oh by the way I got my new phone today, well when I say my new phone I should say phones. Because I get a big discount on my phones I thought I would just keep my 2 accounts I have with them (one of the phones were Andrew's), anyway I got an Iphone 5s (I've got an Iphone 4s, which Makenzy is going to use) and a Nokia Lumia 930, so not to sure which one I'm going to keep for myself and which one Megan will get. I know a lot of people think that it's a bit much to give children phones that are that price but I get them free on my contract and like I said I get a big discount, so as long as they use what I pay a month I don't mind. We never use our house phone so I only have that because I need it for my Internet and it's in my package from Sky.
Well enough about that, sorry for rambling on lol x


Something Different

Hello Friends, Followers and Crafters, I decided to do something different today and make some dummy clips

I've been asked to make a few for friends and family as well as for my Grandchildren. I've been asked to make one with name, date of birth and weight on as a present for a new Mammy.
I have made some keyrings withs names on ie Granda, Nana, Sister etc.

Going to make some as stocking fillers for Christmas.
Thank you popping over to see what i've been up to x
