Good Week!

What started a good week went downhill rather quickly never mind tomorrow is another day. Thorpe park was cancelled due to bad weather and damaged to the show tent. So spent a bit on Paperarts and Banana Frog online to make up for it. Sis took me to Craft and Co and spent quite a bit there, then we popped over to Crafty Cow at Seale and spent a bit there, no have discovered that there is a possiblity the show has been reschedule to the 2nd and 3rd Feb mmmmm will I have enough pennies to go now!
Have a huge list of cards to make before I can scrapbook.

On the Wagon

I think I might be back on the wagon. This LO is a scraplift from pagemap Jan 07, they are great sketches especially if your mojo is missing. I used winnie walls and I made the swirls free hand. The pics are scanned images which I've now discovered that my scanner scans with lines down the pics, so when DS finally moves out and I can get the Epson scanner(its hidden over the two seater, three seater settee, but I have to get over the fridge and freezer first!) I got to scan slides I will use that from now on. And it is square its the photographer thats wonky.

I've also made a card, I've been interested in the word cards featuring words like Joy and Noel in the card mags. So I've had a go with words like MUM, DAD and Bro. I finished the Mum card but not quite the other one.

A message for Andrea read my blog tomorrow to see what we've brought you Christmas.

Finished off another LO but it so grey and miserable here unable to photo it. All this grey weather is very depressing never mind 41/2 weeks will be in Spain and when we come back 6 weeks later will be in Florida.

Well here's my eyelet challenge its an awful picture but you get the idea. Can't believe it was taken in 1979, Tim the baby is 30 this year. It didn't turn out quite as well as I expected but its done. Finished Andi birthday book too but cant show you. Which reminds me I must photo it before I send it.

Sorry guys no craft pic dragged off to Town. When work decides what they are doing with me I shall lose my discount and DS needs towels etc for his new house when he eventually gets it, and he wanted some shirts so I got dragged down there to use my discount card plus need some US dollars for DD. She has some christmas money given to me plus her Birthday soon. Which leads me to the little Mini book I'm making for her birthday card but can't show cos I'm hoping DD may be reading this. We also brought some presents the chocolate variety.

Yipee I've done my LO for Mod Scraps but the weather is awful so can't photo it yet. Like to photo without using flash and I can't scan it, its a bit bumpy. So this is a picture from 2004 when I got my little room has I call it. Its about 9 feet long and 3 foot wide and before Scrapbooking, trust me it doesn't look so neat and tidy.
I've also been very bad, I've ordered my kit from Mod Scraps now thats not unusual but Mandy has add on's so I usually get the Bazzill add on but this time she has a flourish add on kit and well I received a certain cheque today and my heart was obviously in charge than my head, so the kit fell into the basket whoops! Now the guilt is settling in because sis and I are off to thorpe park in a fortnight and I know I will need money (lots and lots) then the following week we are off to Mod Scrap birthday Crop. Hope this guilty feeling passes soon. (all of five minutes).

Well I've had a couple of bad days but things are looking better today. I really need to get my act together and do something crafty always makes me feel a bit better. Only trouble is I've lost my inspiration I really want to do the competition on ModScraps using eyelets but have seriously lost the plot and come up blank.
Good news Andrea parcel has finally arrived it was delivered by parcelforce not convinced that it hasn't been sat somewhere over here rather than over there for last ten days!!!!! So I have some lovely tree decs for next years cause the tree has been put away. So I have a gold and a red baubles shaped like Mickey hanging in my craft room.
Well I've been on a couple of forums I check on, read the blogs that I read, all I need is one huge push to get me going.

Happy New Year

Spent new years eve with my sister, bil and their friends. Sis made a brilliant roast LOVELY. Came home after lunch of bubble and squeak. Now I promised Giselle christmas book but unfortunately its the start of the Tennis season and I have to book an appointment to get onto the computer, the aggro to get on here yesterday was just not worth the stress so here it is today.

Just a couple of pages that I managed to photo reasonably well but you get the idea craftybanshee has also put hers on her blog and she has photo her pages well.

At the moment waiting to be picked up to pop over to my local craft shop, they have a sale starting today, hope my bros get here soon then to drop of Davids fridge, freezer, and washing machine from mum old house not sure where we are going to put it just got to make sure I can get into my craft room
