Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Shopping Trip

No cards today because while my mojo is on strike i took the opportunity to go to Liverpool Papermill Shop yesterday. As all their shops seem to be closing down one by one i thought i'd better go and stock up mainly with the white card i use for my 6 x 6 (ish) card bases. There were 3 assistants at the till and i asked if people had been panic buying. No answer, so i said " you know, with some of your other shops closing". Just a one word reply "no". Then i said " there's plenty of panicking going on on the Docrafts website". No reply again. So i didn't pursue it any further, no point, they must only employ robots. I don't slag shop assistants very often as i am one myself and there's always 2 sides to the story but these 3 were just not interested in conversation,lol. I got 3 large boxes, so come on mojo where are you?
Here's a little photo fom Cute Overload. A great site with lots of funny pics and videos. Daft dogs and scatty cats etc. Go and have a peek.

Yes, i know what day it is lol. Ahem...... target weight 9st 2lb,   todays weight, 9st 5lb. Not bad as i've ate and drank for Queen and country for 3 weeks . No point in doing anything about it yet as there's still "stuff" in the house but look out treadmill, i'm coming to get ya soon....................


  1. Hi Di

    The Papermill Shop I used to go to has closed down :-( such a shame. I used to love going around with my boxes choosing all the lovely colours.

    I buy from Papermill Direct now .. .. they have some great offers every so often and I just make the most of those .. .. .. but it isn't the same as visiting a store.

    I hope your mojo comes back soon.

    Love Jules xx

  2. My local one closes today :( need some white card but the weather is so awful that I don't fancy making the effort incase it's a wasted journey! Sending you a handful of Mojo,Julie.x

  3. Hi Diane, I used to love going around the shop with a box choosing all sorts of coloured card as well, but now my 2 nearest stores have closed. Shame on them, closing all the stores. Hope your mojo returns with a vengence very soon.
