Hello again.
Last night I decided to make a jewellery box using a template on a cdrom by Debbi Moore which I bought from here recently -

I didn't realise how fiddly it could be - especially when I decided to start 'tinkering' with it to make it my own!!!

I am still making it today! To be honest though, we did go out for lunch with friends today and I did faff about with other little jobs too!!! Something tells me my heart's not in it today but I WILL persevere from this point on!

Weather not too good here. The strong wind is getting stronger and it's raining - I'm just grateful we don't live by the coast as I do feel sorry for those who have been flooded again.

Well, hopefully i will have my craft-room ready at some point this week. I have a craft table coming tonight courtesy of Freecycle so when I have a minute I'll get to it and enjoy the change of view (currently the dining room wall and TV to the outdoors and the school at the back!!!!)

Happy sunday everyone x

Thursday Morning Blues, Reds, Yellows..... etcetera!

Good morning one and all.

The title of this post today is quite apt as I've just spent the last hour and a half faffing (yes, that is a word!) faffing about with the colour of my blog!
As a newbie-blogger I have much to learn about the process and I feel i've achieved something today - the background colour! Hope you all approve - tough really if you don't. :)

Must admit, today looks like a 'lost' day. For once this festive season, we have no plans whatsoever for the day - even if some of the previous week days have been spent feeling sorry for oneself after the night before!
One thing is fab though - my cold seems to be on its' way out. I think I have shown it the door and it heeded my advice!

Right now a cup of coffee would go down well but there's nobody else up and about so looks like i'll have to make it it myself - again. Oh, woe is me!!!!

Looked out of the window earlier and my daughter +Kristin Bogumil  and her hubby are still in bed too (did I mention we are a close family? Yes, they live across the road!).

Ok, coffee and creativity time - must finish the card I started! Pictures to follow xxxx

A Happy New Year Everyone!

Although I started making a birthday card yesterday, i didn't quite get round to finishing it!
Had to sort things out for the NY party here last night and have a fight with this cold.
I thought I'd won, but I still have it, so obviously didn't drink enough to kill it or cure it after all!
The party was great fun and enjoyed by all - especially the ' firework-off ' him indoors and his best bud had at midnight! Thought our whole road was gonna lift off there was such a racket of rockets!!!! Boys and their extremely noisy toys eh? lol x

Feeling tired today. The weather here is dreadful; wind, rain and cold. Put together that makes a day on the sofa in front of the TV inevitable. And looking forward to watching the new mini series of Sherlock on TV later on - I reckon tomorrow i'll feel much better and I will aim to start crafting again.

Found yet another fab website for all things card and paper-crafty!

Happy days to all xxxx
