I'm Back

Hello Everyone, sorry I've never been on my blog for over a year. I feel the time is right to start writing again.
I've been on holiday for 6 weeks and yes it was really lovely and Megan and Makenzy both enjoyed it so much. I have a lot of crafting ideas at our caravan so whenever I want to craft I can, I've even took my cuttle bug some folders and dies.
I've been doing a lot of colouring since getting here, I find it so relaxing sitting on my own colouring. I printed some images as well as printing some digi images out. I decided to use my pencils to do my colouring, I'm not sure why but I've went off using my pens, even be thinking about selling them, which is something I wouldn't even of thought of it 6 month ago but after using my pencils I've decided I like it a lot more. I've coloured some of "My Besties" digis so I can make cards later on with them.
Well I was going to add a few I had done but as I'm using my iPad not my laptop I'm not sure how to add my pics, so I will have to go on my laptop tomorrow and add my pics.
Thank you for coming back to read what I've been up to x


It's Been A Good Day

Evening Crafty Friends and Followers, I've had a good day today, no tears (well up to now).  I'm in the middle of knitting a baby blanket, I have 2 to do, a white one and a pink and white one both for my best friends daughters for presents.
Got a lot on tomorrow, going to pick my oldest daughter up and dropping my Granddaughter off at school, then Megan and Makenzy have both asked to go to school tomorrow afternoon so need to drop them off and then Nikki (my oldest daughter) and I are going to see Abby our new puppy, we might be getting her early on 24th instead of 31st May, Megan and Makenzy can't wait.
Abby first time in the garden, her brothers and sisters loved it.

  Nikki has got her new puppy and she's called Princess Petals, the youngest Grandchildren picked the name. Princess petals is 9 weeks old and so tiny


Getting There

Evening Crafty friends and Followers, Sorry I haven't been around much, but it still really hard to do anything, even watching telly is hard. There is so many thing that remind me of Andrew as he was everything to me. It hard getting crafty things now as Andrew would always get them for me.  the children are finding it really hard, Megan and Makenzy aren't even back to school full time, Megan does 2 afternoons a week and Makenzy does 1 afternoon a week. Neither one of them want to be away from me which I understand fully, just wish the school would see it the same.
Anyway I have started doing my class again on a Wednesday night for the local GP staff. I don't mind doing cards while I'm with them but on my own I'm finding it hard to get into the swing of it.
Here are a few cards that I have been making with the class


Late But Here Now

Hello Crafty Friends and Followers, Thank you for the kind remarks on my cards. Been out today and popped into Boundary Mills just for a look and ended up spending to much on craft things, but I did need them....really.
Got the children and grandchildren tomorrow for dinner, looking forward to it, it's lovely have all the kids around me, especially at the minute.

We are getting a new member of the family on 31st May. She'll be 8 weeks old when she comes to us. Abby (that's the name Megan and Makenzy have picked for her) will be getting trained to work and help me in everyday life. We are all really looking forward to her coming, we went to see her last week and now going twice a week until we get her so she can get use to us as well as us to her.

This is Abby, she's 4 weeks old in this pic, just opened her eyes

Having A Good Day Today

Afternoon Crafty Friends and Followers, I'm having a good day today and even had a good class last night. Last nights class went really well, we made 2 cards, the first was an 8 x 8 card with a basic decoupage on the front made from Crafters Companions Party Paws Cd.

The second card we made was from the same CD but we used a 6 x 6 card, we cut the shape out which I made a template for everyone.

Thank You for looking at my blog, hope you'll become a follower and pop back again.



Hello Crafty Friends and Followers, Had a hard day yesterday, it was Makenzy's 9th birthday and the first without Andrew his Dad, I didn't think something like a birthday could be so hard, Makenzy found it really hard as he wanted his Dad there with him, even though I told him Daddy will always be with us, it's still really hard for him and Megan to understand, even I find it hard.

Any way here is another card I have made, I'm enjoying getting back into crafting, think it's because it helps me relax and I know Andrew wouldn't be happy if I stopped doing it as it's help so much over the years with that many different things. Andrew was always buying something crafty for me.


Another One For Today

Hi crafty Friends and Followers, I've made another card this morning. I'm busy sorting out things for tonight's class, I've decided to start my classes again, think it helps me getting back and Andrew won't want me to stop doing it.
