Good Morning EVERYONE !!!

I am sooo cold today ... just cannot heat up !!! Hubby is on holiday for the next three days using his last year's holiday ... he has promised he will not get in my way and that I have just to pretend that he is not there !!!! LOL we shall see how long that lasts hee hee

Tonight we have our first parents evening at Lucy's Grammar School.  I think it will be a mad mad dash round all the teachers.  I believe you are allocated 5 minutes per teacher and I think we have about 10 to see over a 2 hour period and its a big school AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !!!! but looking forward to it.

OK today I have a candle to share with you.  It is 3 inches in height this candle.  The image is from the Canine Capers release just before Christmas.  I am such a huge huge fan of Kraftin Kimmie.

I am in the process of working on some other candles ... watch this space.

Have a wonderful crafty day EVERYONE !!!

Love and Hugs

Hi Everyone !!!

Well the good news is I AM STILL UNEMPLOYED !!!! I have my first interview with the JobCentre at the end of this week !! See if I am entitled to anything .....

In between lunches, although I am cutting them right back .... I have been working on a few different projects but have as yet not managed to complete very much ... because I keep starting something else LOL !!!! I still cant believe my time goes so fast in the house than it does when you work.

Anyhoo one project I did manage to complete was my FIRST EVER NOTEBOOK !!! Was totally inspired a few months back with notebooks Pops had made and thought OH I NEED TO TRY THAT !!!! so I invested in a Bind-It-All Zutter machine (thingy - technical term) and here is the first result.  I quite really pleased with how it turned out.

The stamped image is from one of the Canine Capers stamp collection released by Kraftin Kimmie just before Christmas and was lukcy to pick both sets up in their Boxing Day sale. I am not usually a doggy person but I just fell in love with the whole set LOL !!!!

Thank you so much for visiting today !!!! Today I am colouring on tissue paper so that I can make some candles !!!!

HAVE A FAB DAY !!! Much Love

Happy Saturday dear peeps !!!

Having a family chill day today and not really doing much at all ... which is fab !!! Have the piggies out (I call them my babies!!) running around and they are soooo funny !!! if they would stand still for long enough I could try and get a photo of them both ... they are coming along famously although Lila does not like being lifted or handled at all.  Roxie is coming round now it has taken ages. 

This card is made using one of Mo Manning's images called SuperDuper Girl.  I just love her.  The papers are from the new Papermania range called Portobello Road and the sentiment is computer generated by me.  The Union Jack buttons and ribbon are also from the Portobello Road range.

Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend !!!! whatever you do !!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL !!!!  Hope everyone had a fantastic festive period and the weather was not too bad for you all.   We no longer have a garden fence !!!!

What I want to know is how did I manage to have time to work !!!! I am really really enjoying being unemployed and being a stay at home housewife/mum and doing the house work regularly and getting more into my crafting again !!!!

Would like to share my first card of the year with you.  The image is from Lili of the Valley and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The sentiment is from Ladybug Crafts Inc. and the papers are from my stash.

OK that is all for the moment !!! Got some housewifey chores to do and then I am off out for lunch with one of my friends.  Thanks for visiting and have a great day !!!
