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!

  1. I think your cards look great - and a whole lot better than what my attempt at a scrapbook page would be!! I like the one with the birdie best I think.

    I was sat at my work desk all day too, so just getting to snoop around now. It's rubbish when work gets in the way of crafty business!!

    Thanks for stopping by my desk :-)

  4. Ah, there's nothing like a routine. Works for me too! Time off just means that there's always tomorrow! I've been at work too - when I think about WOYWWers visiting each other while I'm working it makes me all fidgety - I do hate to miss out! Your cards are great, gosh, you've got a lot on!
