Here i am after a mega productive weekend crafting :) So much new stash and no time to play with it. I allotted the weekend to myself and sent hubby off to the golf course. I wanted to do something with my favourite holiday photos and i thought what better way than a mini book. I had seen these fab new papers (road trip from Prima) and i just had to have them. So this is picture heavy but here is my mini book..........

OK so mini book made, i spent forever blog hopping for inspiration and knew i did not want to do a LO. I needed to have a bit of a change. I have had this Tando house sat in the jiffy bag envelope since it arrived and had not thought much about it for a while. The general chat here between mum's is how little time we now have until Xmas, but of course we have Halloween and Bonfire night first and i cannot possibly think about Xmas shopping yet! So with a few Halloween papers i could find ( not many about this year) i made myself a cute little Halloween spooky house.

I am really pleased with it and am hoping to be able to find a little battery operated light to go inside!! It will look great with my few bits and pieces of Halloween goodies when i get round to decorating nearer to the time. I am going to get online later and order another one of these houses to make into a Christmas Grotto.

Well now i have shared with you I'm off to finish my True blood book and relax before my working week starts :( I won't have time to blog again this week as we (Laura from Airing Cupboard Craft & me) are off to stay with some girlfriends who no longer live here! Girls weekend with lots of Cocktails, laughing talking and of course some shopping!

Have a fab week

WOYWW Finally!!!

Well it has been a while!! This post has been put on a little early (Tuesday Eve) but I do have to go to work tomorrow :( So think of me while you are all blog hopping as this is where I will be sat, not my favourite idea of a desk!

The summer really did take up my time and to think I said a whole 6 weeks off and I can craft all the time!

Now the children have all gone back to school and I have gone back to work, I feel more organised and am finally finding time to complete NVQ (think my assessor will pass out) and to find craft time.

So here I am after going to crop a few days ago, I was so disorganised I really don't want to show you the LO's, they are OK but nothing to be proud of!! However I know I need to set myself the task of starting to prepare at least a week in advance!

I have been spending a little time browsing online and looking in my local craft shop for lots of lovely stash! I really like some of the Halloween papers this year and think I may invest in some very soon. I have a cute Tando house to decorate and it's looking more like a Halloween house every day. It is however the festive goodies I have been buying and with so many cute bits and pieces around I really have been having trouble choosing and deciding what to do with them all.

I have not really been into card making until now but thought as I have all of this festive stash I should really use some to make cards instead of buying them! So here is my first attempt at Christmas cards.
I have to say I am quite pleased with them and enjoyed having a go so much I have signed up to do the card marathon being organised by the lovely Julia and Allie from 2 Scrap Ladies in October! Well i figured I might learn something :)

I have also invested in a Cinch and am hoping to find sometime over the weekend to have a play with it. I have some fab new 6x6 papers called Road Trip and I would like to use them to make a mini book of our summer holiday. So ladies watch this space.................

Happy Crafting, Hope to catch up with some blog hopping tomorrow evening!
