Birthday Cake, Gin and Gelato

September has been a busy month for me, my daughter and I both have birthdays this month and we treated ourselves with a trip to London which involved several gin bars, the Sky Garden, dinner, cake and to top it off, Hamilton!! We had a fantastic day, the sun was shining and it was good… Continue reading Birthday Cake, Gin and Gelato

Stamping and Celebrating

Hubby and I are celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary this weekend! Who would have thought we’d make it this far? We have worked hard to stay together and have a lot to be thankful for, a nice home, two beautiful, successful children, (one is estranged but the other more than makes up for that) and… Continue reading Stamping and Celebrating

Out of Chaos comes Creativity

I keep meaning to sit down and write a blog post but as always life gets in the way and I get distracted by something else. I have however, been doing lots of stamping. The situation on the family fallout is static. My Son has a lot of anger which he is directing at me.… Continue reading Out of Chaos comes Creativity

New Name, New Outlook.

Goodness, it has been two months since I last blogged! It has been an eventful, dramatic and emotional time for me recently and while I have been doing some crafting which has helped, I haven’t been able to face blogging until now. Mexico was everything I expected it to be and more. I’ll say no… Continue reading New Name, New Outlook.

Christmas was lovely but our main focus thus far this year has been THE WEDDING of the year! My Son is getting married in Mexico next month and preparation for… Continue reading Happy New Year, if a little late!

All done for another year.

Well, that's Christmas done. The Grandkids received an obscene amount of stuff, so much waste at this time of year makes me sad. I cooked dinner was OK, it's all in the timing. Again, too much food to be comfortable with. The highlight was Isabella dressed as Edna Mode from The Incredibles, she also has… Continue reading All done for another year.

The Festive Season is upon us.

You may have noticed I haven't blogged for a month! I have been neglectful but with good reason. I have been working although that is no more (for now). I have also been volunteering at our local food bank. It is a sad state of affairs that in 2018 there are families and single people… Continue reading The Festive Season is upon us.

Autumn is here

It's been two weeks since Isabella started school and I have been busy! The craft room has been overflowing with creations with an Autumnal feel. The backgrounds for these cards were made using Distress Oxide inks. I chose 3 Autumnal colours and swooshed them onto my craft mat. I then spritzed with a water mister… Continue reading Autumn is here
