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

Taking a little break.

Hello everyone. It's been a week since my last post and I've had to make myself do this one today. To be truthful I'm feeling a little bit despondent where my blog is concerned. I don't know whether it's because of this busy time of the year or whether I just don't want to keep it up. Therefore, I've decided to have a bit of a "trial separation" in the hope that I'll miss it and try again in the new year.
Meanwhile here is my last Christmas card for the year. Yippee!!

Well, it's actually one of a pair I made for mum and mum in law. The image is by Meljens Designs. I don.t know the origin of the paper but it's one I downloaded ages ago. It was originally pink but I changed it to sepia in picasa. That's not glitter around the edges, it's actually the design of the paper. I love my fiskars deckle scissors because it doesn't matter if you can't cut straight, lol.

I do hope I'll be back in a few weeks time. I still want to make things but I'm a bit fed up of editing photos, doing links,etc. Maybe I've just got my lazy head on.
I hope you all have the best Christmas ever. I'm going out to a local hotel for my Christmas dinner as my kitchen closes for the day.

So merry Christmas, happy new year and hopefully I'll sort myself out.

I'm at my target weight again today but as of Saturday I'm going to stuff my face for a few weeks then back to the diet.

  2. Lets hope it is just that time of year! I enjoy looking through your posts. Another lovely card you've made here, I love the colours, really nice. I WILL see you in the new year!! Have a lovely time over Christmas x x x

  3. Just love your quirky sense of humour and I will miss your blog post. Don't ever take any of the freebies as I'm not too good at digital stamping. My blog is a bit on the back burner at the mo due to OHs health problem but I still manage to browse my feeds of which your are one. Have afab Christmas and hope to see you in the new year.x Tricia

  4. I had missed reading your blog and wondered whether you were ok. Sorry to hear that you're taking a break but I understand how you feel as it can be a pain doing all the 'linky stuff'. Hope you have a lovely Christmas, take care.
