Been Busy

Hi Bloggers, Crafters and Friends, I've been busy today making some Christmas things, I can show you one of the things but not the other until I finish it off.
I love making these, well not the way I've made it today, when I make this any other time I always make it hanging one under the other, but decided to make it a bit different today and do it in 2 layers as you can see.
I used Debbie Moore's CD Rudolph and Friends. I added gold glitter to the Reindeer and of course red glitter to Rudolph's nose.


So Pleased

Hi Everyone, well I'm so pleased that I now have my laptop back, been without it for nearly 16 months never thought I would miss it with having a ipad but it's amazing how much more you can do on you laptop that you can't do on an ipad.
Over the past 2 years crafting has been what I want to do, no matter how many times I thought "this is it, I'll start crafting again" but after getting all my things out to start making cards, I might get one done then that's it.
I started doing my classes again last week and really enjoyed it, wasn't sure if I would be able to get back into it but we made 2 cards both Christmas and I've got 2 cards made up ready for this weeks class (hope this is the start of crafting again). I will get some pics took of them and get them up for you to see.
I just want to say a big Thank You to everyone that has helped me over the past 2 years, it's been really hard and I know I still have along way to go and I know I will never get over it, but they say I will learn to live with it. Andrew was my everything, just as my children, my dad and grandchildren are and without them I'm not sure where I would be now.


Late night/Early morning

Hello All, not sure if it's night or day so saying "hello" is the easy wary. We'll I've just had my birthday and I had really lovely one, Megan and Makenzy spoilt me with a lot of presents. My dad took them out (sure say they took my dad out lol) on Tuesday and I can say is my dad said he's never seen so many place in 3 hours as did when out with them. One of the places they went to was 'The Royal Quays'  (it's a lot of shops all next to each other), my dad said it was really nice and they've done loads to it since he was down about a year ago, only for me to tell him it's been 8 years since he was last down no wonder it looked different lol.
I've haven't done much crafting over the past few days, but I will be starting this weekend as the classes I teach are starting back up next week so I must start and get things ready. We are going to have a trip to Hobbycraft tomorrow, have a look around, Megan wants to get a few more things for her Smash book she's been doing. I will post some pics tomorrow (Friday evening) to show you how she's getting on as this is the first one she has ever done with no help, (she's done really well).
Well I'll go now and catch up later on today, x


Good Morning

Good Morning, well I'm not sure if you would think that if your up at this time and not been to bed yet. Had a busy day yesterday so this is the first time I've managed to have some time to myself and catch up on here.
Had my Granddaughters last night (Friday) sleeping over which is really lovely, I usually have my Grandson as well but not last night. I was up bright and early this morning as Emily my youngest Grandchildren didn't sleep much as she's full of cold and has a terrible cough, so 4am I was up watching Baby TV with her. My other Granddaughter Sophie had her dance class for 31/2 hours and she has her first exams at 10.30am today, which she really looking forward to and has promised to show Nana everything she has learnt when she comes during the week.
I really can't believe it my youngest Granddaughter's birthday tomorrow (Monday) she will be 1 years old, it's doesn't seem that long ago since she was born, so tiny at 3lb, but saying that she is only in size 3 month clothes and her weight is 14lb, so she is still very small for her age.

Well I will be back on later on today as I've decided to start my albums that I want to make and also Megan and Makenzy both want to do one that they can put in the special things and times with Andrew (daddy) in. This will be my very first try so fingers cross I'll do ok.


I'm Back for Good

Hello Friends and Crafters, I'm back, yes it's took awhile and I know I've tried a few times but never managed to do it but now I know it's the right time. I've been watching a lot of crafty things on You Tube and have decided that I'm going to have a try at a "Southern Charm Journal " simpler to the ones on jenofevedesign. I've been out and got everything but the mix media which I'm going to get tomorrow so keep watching as this weekend I'll be doing my journal.
I'm off now to go and do some crafting and will pop back later and show you what I've been up to, x


I'm Back

Good Morning (well just), hope everyone is well and having time to craft. I feel like I just come back and something else happens and I'm away again, but for the time being I'm here. Had so much going on with the children, grandchildren and myself. My oldest daughter is helping a friend out at the minute so grandchildren come to Nana's. Megan has this cold that's going around, Makenzy's liver has decided to start playing up (as he puts it) might have have more hospital visits and the injections I get and had 8 days again have not worked so I'm not 100%, but as we do we get on with it. It is lovely having great children to help and look after me.
I've never been out of the house apart from doctors and hospitals so I've been playing around doing different things, here are some of what I've been up to

 I love Tatty Ted, I think he's ideal for birthday's of all ages x

 I enjoyed doing this card for a couple that are good friends of the family, when they opened it they thought it was lovely as years ago they use to go dancing every week, but stopped about 10 years again because she had knee problems, they now go out for a drive every week.

 Another one of my baby blankets, over the years I'm not sure how many I have made now. This one is for my granddaughter because it's starting to get cold so my daughter asked for a warm blanket and this is what she got.
Last is my darling granddaughter Sophie, she loves crafting, She has all her own tools and craft drawers at Nana's now so she can craft whenever she likes. We made this card together. I coloured the image and showed her wear to put the things, but she picked the background papers, buttons and how it should go.

Thank You for taken the time to pop along and seeing what I have been up to x


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.
