Time to update again

Well I can't believe it's been so long since I updated my blog, time just seems to run away with me.

I suffer with depression and it hit me quite bad for a few months, but I seem to be getting over the worst of it now, so I won't dwell on it.

I have been away on holiday to the lovely island of Menorca, it is such a beautiful island, we usually go there twice a year, I love it, roll on May.

Well it's that time of year again, Christmas!!!!, hope all of you are all ready, I'm not far off now, still got quite a few cards to make, but with the help of my daughter I'm sure I will get there, she has made a few of the cards I'm going to put on here, there's nothing we like more than to sit and craft together.

Anyway enough of me, time to put some cards on for you to have a look at, with me feeling down my inspiration seems to have deserted me, I'm not altogether very happy with the cards, but I'm sure whoever I give them too will appreciate them and not look at them with the critical eye that we crafters do (well I hope not anyway lol).

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Marvin again

Here is another one for you to have a play with, have fun with him.


I would like to introduce you to Marvin.
He is very friendly and he will help you in anyway to make your creations special, he will be avaliable in many guises in the near future, hopefully, if people like him, he also has a lovely family too.
You maybe thinking..... well he's not the nicest chocolate in the box, but he has a certain charisma,
He asked me to put him on here so that you can have a play with him and see what you think, if you are happy with him, can you please leave a comment.
Have fun.
Just to add, this is the creation of Tony Windle, please do not pass him off as your own, he will only be available for a limited time, thanks.

Time to update!!!!

Where does the time go, I thought I would have been able to keep up to updating, but time just seems to fly, anyway, here it is......are you ready for a nap.....

Well I will go back in time to just a few weeks ago when it was my Birthday, June the 24th, I received some lovely goodies from my family and my friends on the Crafts Beautiful Forum.

I got 2 lovely bunches of flowers, some yummy chocolates, 2 teddy bears, 2 Rich Man Poor Man DVDs, who remembers them.....I haven't watched them yet, and some money, so I didn't do too bad.

I have put all the lovely cards on here that I received from everyone on the forum, sorry I can't name everyone of them now, the memory isn't too good now that I'm a year older, lol.

I have kept them all and when I get my bedroom decorated I am going to display them on the wall, I will post pics on here when that gets done, although excactly when that will be, I don't know as I have other rooms to decorate first.

I have also put pics of cards that I have made for birthdays and for challenges, enjoy having a look.

You can wake up now, I have finished for now, thanks for taking a peek at my little blog and hope you enjoy.

What a great weekend!!!

I had a great weekend as usual, Saturday is a day for family in my house, most of my children and grandchildren come over to see me, we always have fun and the house is full of laughter, we sit and chat and play games and sometimes we even do a bit of crafting, I love to see what children make when you put a lot of goodies in front of them.

This Saturday was a bit different though as I was banned from going into my craft room as 2 of my sons girlfriends decided they wanted to make me a card for my birthday, it's a good job I had the grandchildren here to keep me occupied lol, the girls seemed really pleased with what they had made, and I was so touched when I saw the envelopes and they had addressed them to MUM, altogether now Awwwww...

I was really made up when I posted on the CB forum that I had started a blog, the comments I got from all the girls on there really boosted my confidence and I would like to thank them all for that, you are all wonderful.

I was going to try and fit in a bit of cardmaking today, but once again I had visitors, so that plan went out the window, I think I may have to start the night shift if I want to make cards, that way I won't get disturbed with visitors or the phone ringing lol.

Well that was my exciting weekend, I will try and update again soon, I have a lot of cards to make over the next few days, hopefully I will get them done, fingers crossed.

My first entry on my blog

Well here I am trying to set up a blog as it seems to be the in thing at the moment, to say I'm nervous is an understatement, but I'm sure I will get the hang of it.

I will probably be asking for a lot of help from my crafting friends over in the Crafts Beautiful Forum, I hope they will be patient with me, and gentle too lol.

I really hope I don't bore you all too much, I don't really do anything exciting, but I will try and write a little something each day.

Today started off really well, I got a delivery from the postman with items I won on ebay, it was like christmas, opening all the lovely packets, I have had some good bargains from there and some lovely things.

I managed to do a bit of crafting as well, that's a first for me lately, I get a lot of crafters block and it is soooo frustrating, especially when I have all these lovely things to play with, I think I'm just spoilt for choice lol.

Well that's about it for now until I get the hang of this.

If you have been reading this and think I should do it different, then feel free to tell me.
