Had a great weekend.

Celebrated Grandads 90th Birthday and 25th Wedding anniversary on Sunday with a big family get together. Lovely carvery, wine and absolutely fantastic to see family members Ive not seen for about 23 years!

Have been doing some cards inbetween too.

One was from my FB page competition....Personalised Fathers Day Card.

Not a great picture but Tracy who I made it for was over the moon with it.

Next was a personalised Thank you card for a music teacher!

Again Sara was very pleased with her card.

Then this afternoon I have made another Fathers Day card to go into the for sale section on FB page or Folksy shop!

Am going to make some more tonight.

Have also made a chunky choc sponge cake with the kids today! Mmmmm its lovely!!

Off to do the kids some dinner now though so will return with my creations later! XXX

Lazy Sunday....

Been a busy bee!!

Had complete cardmaking head on today! Have made FOUR in total! The ideas just keep on coming its great! One of the cards I've made is for my Grandads 90th Birthday next weekend! Bless him! What an age!

I remember when I was little Mum and Dad used to have a pond in the back garden and he used to do this thing that would leave me in awe lol.... he used to crouch down by the pond and it looked like he was putting his hand in and he pulled out this goldfish coloured orange thing and put it in his mouth!!! :o

Obviously it was years later that I discovered it was a bit of carrot! LMAO! I remember the weirdest of things from my childhood!

Anyway....back to the cards LOL! Here are the 4 I've produced today!

As always, any comments or feedback on any of my creations is much appreciated.

Also DONT FORGET to tell your friends about my blog and get them to follow.... once I have 100 followers I can run a giveaway! :)

Ooooh Exciting!!!

I've just had my 1st order for a personalised card!!! How exciting!! *big cheesy grin*

Can't believe it's Friday already! Where has this week gone?

No plans for the weekend other than getting this card done for my friend and working on some more for stock.

Have made one this morning. This time using some button detail! These little buttons are so cute and just seem to give the card that little something extra! Its not a fantastic picture but the numbers are actually glittery too.

Let me know what you think?!

Also this afternoon I made my niece Ruby her 1st Birthday card! She isn't 1 until August but the idea just popped into my head and off I went.

A little different to the ones I've done so far. Again I would appreciate any feedback or comments. :)

Another creation! Starting to feel better!

Afternoon all!

Not posted for a few days, been full of cold and chesty cough but now slowly starting to feel human again!

Have been staring at my card making bits and bobs for a few days now but just haven't had the energy to do anything.

Today though I've had a sudden burst of inspiration and have made another card this afternoon! Plan on doing more later too but currently the contents of my craft box are almost covering the entire floor space in my front room! An hour til school run time too! EEEK!

Here is todays efforts.

As always comments and feedback are always welcome!

Also Don't Forget about my competition that will be drawn once I get to 100 blog followers! Please share this and RT. Much appreciated!

And another!!

Oh I'm on a roll today!! Here is another one!!! Really getting into this today!

Thursday, 12 May 2011


Feeling very sorry for myself today! I am completely full of snot, achey, pounding head, sore throat and the start of a very chesty cough! :(

Will try and create another card later once the kids are in bed. If I can keep my eyes open!

PLEASE RT and share my blog! Don't forget that once I reach 100 blog followers I will run a competition!

My little girl made a card last night!! She's so clever! She is 8 and absolutely LOVES all things crafty!!! Here it is!!

How good is that??

I see a family business in the future! Hehehe!!

Really got the bug for this now LOL

Just made this in about half an hour! Im loving this card making malarkey!

Still awaiting some "proper" glue which will be alot better than what Im currently using. 

I can see myself really getting in to this!

As before any feedback or comments would be much appreciated!

Thanks xxx

And we're off!!!

Well I've officially started!!!

Here is my 1st card!

I know its very simple but I've got to start somewhere!


Any feedback would be very much appreciated!

Just a waffle really...

.....had docs this morning to do a review on my medication. For those who don't know, I won't bore you with the ins and outs but Ive had 3 breakdowns! :(

Was put on anti depressants (fluoxetine 20mg) over 19 months ago and quite frankly they done nothing for me. So last time I hit rock bottom the docs decided to try me on citalipram 20mg(sp). Well have been on those for just over 2 months now and again theyve not really done alot for me so today the doctor decided to up my dosage to 40mg. Now in one breath Im really hoping they help but in the other im a little peeved that I NEED to have the dose upped, and that I clearly NEED these things as I am a mess without them!

Another reason why my venture is important to me as it will give me something to focus on.

Full of cold too so a little extra grumpy! BUT my kids keep me going too! Just sat and listened to my gorgeous daughter Izzy (8) read to me. Xavier (5) lives on his own little planet and constantly has me LMAO! He is such a character! They are my life and I wouldnt be without them! Im so proud of them!

Tonight, once theyve both had their baths I'm going to start on making my 1st card! Im really excited about this new venture!

Hope you have all had a good day.


Crafty Goodies have started to arrive!!

Finally.....!! My craft stuff has started to make an appearance through the post!! Exciting! I can now finally start making some cards! :)

Don't forget I need to get to 100 blog followers to run my next competition!

Going to get started this afternoon/this evening! Let the creative juices flow!

Im actually full of cold today and feeling rotten, hoping starting my little project will perk me up a little.

Proud Mummy Moment is on its way!

My little Xavier (5yrs) has his class assembly this afternoon at school. They have been filmed re-enacting the Royal Wedding! He got the part of Prince Harry!

So later on this afternoon Xavier has to stand up infront of the whole school and the parents of his class mates and introduce the assembly. They will then show the little film theyve made.

Im so excited to see its going to be so cute!!! I cant wait!!!

Whats your proudest Mummy moment?

YAY it's Friday!!

Happy Friday all! What plans do you have for this weekend?

I'm hoping that the postman is going to bring me my goodies so I can start with the card making and start sharing my creations with you all!

Right, who is going to help me get to 100 followers so I can run another giveaway?!!!

Let see how long it takes to get me there!

Thank you all for your support so far!

Have a great weekend! :)

Pleased today!!!

After what seems like an eternity of waiting, I have FINALLY received an appointment for Xavier re: referral for suspected Aspergers. The ball is finally rolling. Its been a long wait already but am preparing myself for a long haul ahead too!

Appt is 13th June so not too far away!

Dont get me wrong he is the most amazing little boy, very loving, very clever etc etc but his "meltdowns" are becoming increasingly hard to deal with! Its so tiring. Im not giving him any special treatment so am putting discipline into place where needed but its just trying to snap him out of these "meltdowns" or trying to prevent them happening before they kick off or explaining things to him. It really is hard work. I just feel that once we have an official diagnosis I will definitely know what Im dealing with, and will have more support to help deal with it too!

I love my son (and my daughter of course!!) with all my heart and I just want to be able to deal with every day life with more knowledge and peace of mind. 

My kids make me very proud! :) 

Look at him...... like butter wouldnt melt!! LOL

He's an Angel!

This is Xavier

And here is my gorgeous girl Izabel
