Morning Everyone, had a busy week, had hospital, doctors, OT and my new hoist delivered. Got my new hoist delivered yesterday so it will help Andrew, as it can move me for chair to chair etc depending where i want to go, get a ceiling one for the upstairs, but got to wait for that one (but it is getting there slowly).
Haven't had time to do much this week, have made a Betty Boop birthday card, Tilda christmas card and 2 other christmas cards. Must get Andrew's birthday card made for 27th Sept, just not sure what i want to do just yet, thought i'll have a look around on blogs and pages today for some ideas.
Lets see what i find

Afternoon, haven't done any crafting this weekend as not having a good weekend. In bed as I write this, had a bad night, pain really bad today. Can't really craft anyway at the minute, Andrew's decided to swap kids bedrooms around and also move my craft room around so it will be easier for me, Haven't looked not sure if I should lol. I'm missing not being able to craft, think it's the only think that stops me from getting to stressed (well we do have 9 kids and 3 grandchildren, so need something)lol.
Anyway had a busy week, had a meeting on Monday with Council about the community centre I teach at and then we had 2 big meeting on Thursday with Council, Planning and people in the area about the new community that we are getting built, very nice and posh. We will not have it for 15 months and having to work from different location, which hasn't been easy with the old ladies that do the keep fit, I have found a room in the local school for them, but the time and day has had to be changed.


Tuesday 13th Sept

Evening, had a busy day today, i've had to make 13 cards for my mother in-law for tomorrow, i'm glad most of them were just one layer cards as she has to post them, i don't mind doing them, but i never feel like i've done much and don't really like making them like that as i always feel like there is something missing (embellishments, flowers, gems, pins etc).
Thinking about popping along to my local craft shop Papercuts, in Whitley Bay tomorrow as there having a demo day 10.00am till 4.00pm, so there will be plenty going on.
