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!
Lovely catch up
