I finally made it !!!!!!


I got to grab a few things from the walk in fridge  {aka my crafty space } and did a couple of pages yesterday, not exactly what I would have produced if I was sat in there living my 'happy' life, but you have to take what you can get don't you. These photo of my three eldest grandkiddos are obviously when they were really young, but they have always been so close, and still are, the boys are at the same college, both well over six feet tall and play footie together as well and of course you all know about my sweet girl Mia, Little Bo herself. Now at Uni and doing so well.

I used a stencil I bought from the works, some TH stickers and lots of bits and bobs from my stash. Got to love the grandkids.
Now this one is of Carla my daughter when she went to Turkey last year, a good time was had by all, I love this photo its so natural. They were on some boats where they all get blasted with with lots of water, she loved it.

Thats all for now, I hope and pray that I can make  a nice card soon, I am really desperate to colour up something, anything haha...see you all soon. 
Footnote; Just thought I should add that all the pics here were copied on my new Sprocket, I bought after Christmas with some vouchers I got, I am over the moon with it, well worth the money, its a pocket printer for those of you not heard of it yet, zero ink too, the papers are a slight bit pricy but I am happy with it. Going all over the house taking pictures on my phone to re-print on this nifty little thing...

Last call for 2022


This will be my last post of the year. I have cased these cards from my lovely blogger friend Carol Gill, you can find them here. I just loved them so much.

 Just lovely white card, I put the brick die at the back of the die cut flowers and tied with waxed cord. The sentiment is stamped. I sent these to two dear friends.

I think Carol came up with a belter again and I loved making them.


Well thats it, I hope you had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to a New Year filled with all things good. Have a good one. I am having a new years eve dinner at my daughters, she did the most wonderful job on Christmas day and everyone had such a lovely time.

Much love, see you on the other side :))

Last round up.


I can't believe I made it before the 'big day'. Things have been abit 'off' to say the least and this virus is sticking it out, but I am missing making and creating, so today I did a page in my new book. I have been collecting bits and bobs to start this one, bought a lovely Stamperia pad with lots of elements in and went from there. I am quite pleased with it, its a good start I think.

 After fussy cutting all the elements out I just tore some paper, inked up the page and stamped some script, the TH sentiment strips still coming in handy as you can see and a good splash of white ink.

Thats that then, still can't believe I managed it :))
One last picture, my tree this year, its looking abit tired now I think, its had a good run and I swear every year I will buy a new one, but I just can't find one, at the right price {have you seen the money they want these days !!!} maybe next year, she still dresses up nice I think haha.

Why it was taken from this angle....who knows, kids !!!!1

Well thats it. I wish you all the best Christmas you can have, that joy will be with you and we can spare a moment to remember why we celebrate. I will be with my daughter, for the first time in more than forty years I won't be cooking up a storm, I am just not up to it and Carla is so excited to be doing it, as long as were all together I am fine with it.
Thanks for all the comments and friendships I have made from having this blog, it always amazes me how kind and giving blogland can be.
Have a blessed time.

A couple of photo's is all I have to show.


Hello everyone, I am so sorry I haven't posted in almost a month but well I have had this awful infection, two lots of antibiotics later still not doing my best, the reason I can't do any crafting is because my little craft room is actually the back porch on the house and its like a walk in fridge, seriously its bitter out there and I just can't manage to heat it, so thats my excuse. However, I did talk these pics. this morning, its colder out there than it looks, views from my home back and front.

In the distance over yonder stands the old Windmill, usually  clearly seen but the mist has covered it.

And out back


In the spring and summer its glorious, also when it snows but we get very little now, fingers crossed because the kids love it.

Tomorrow the family are travelling to bring Mia home for Christmas, they tried to get to her on saturday but had to turn back as the roads were like glass, no one can explain why the roads weren't gritted !!!!

One last pic, hope your not to bored by now, its my new garland on the fireplace, love it

Thanks for sticking it out to the end :)) I hope to get at least one creation on here before the big day, I miss my crafting soooo much, Mia will sort me out I am sure.

I hope you are all well and if not keep your chin up, after all, its what we do best !!!!!

Love to all, stay safe

Quick-ish post


Hi lovlies, I hope your day is as bright as it is here today, washing out, doors open Luna in and out like there is no tomorrow and all is well :))

Obviously been making a few more bits and bobs for christmas, when I saw this sweet image on Sue's blog HERE, well I had to grab, LOTV and so gorgeous and a nice price to match too.

Some tags, just deckle edged and layered on silver or gold and matching thread, done !!

Now a card, don't you just love this image and no colouring unless you fancy abit, just glitter and go   yay   haha

Sorry about the light bouncing off the pic, the little tag at the top is just a seasons greeting.
Thats all folks, I am off to do a little bit of crafting, although I am being held up waiting on some ribbon I need and a few bits, but thats ok, the wreath I made is also waiting for final touches but it will all come together, I keep telling myself that so it must be true :))
Enjoy your day.

What a drab Monday...


Hello lovely people, I hope you all had a good weekend.

I have been doing a few things and here are just a couple, or three.

OK, so I confess, I forgot to blow off the glitter that has spread everywhere, I forgot to stamp the sentiment too, will do later and felt to lazy to take more pics, so please feel free to use your imagination...


Now this, not sure if I like but what can you do !!
Made a couple of tags, this one was stamped with the trees and little cottage, found bits and bobs to use I think I got carried away with the distress paste for snow which I then added glitter splashed with white paint this time instead of ink no idea why just did it.......phew, it was all very creative !!!! as you can see :)) 
This one I made with die cuts from a book I bought at The Works, so long ago, well before Covid came to town anyway. It has gone into my journal for my Christmas pages..
Once again thats all from me, I think I will go find something to do, I have had a real busy morning, had a good clean up and son is out tidying up the garden, everywhere feels nice and fresh and I don't want to mess it up so I will just stand about for abit I think ha ha ha, honestly I think I am getting worse...:))
 Hugs from

This almost hit the bin !!!!


Hello, hope you are having a good weekend so far, the sun came out late morning here, so I am quite happy with that, thankyou very much.

I know I said I wasn't buying any more images yet, but well I saw this one from Mo, well two actually, but this one is so cute, although I was abit miffed at the sparkly bits, it just looked odd somehow, anyway, after consulting my sweet girl, its ago...see for yourselves.

Coloured with PM pens, brick stencil done with chalks and glitter, the little tag is from a whole bunch I bought last year on Amazon, it was a last minute 'run out of tags' moment, but they are usefull I think, ribbon is stash.

Do you see what I mean about the hat, it looks a bit shady under the glitter, anyway, who knows...

Thats all for today, I am off to have a nice cuppa, maybe a digestive biscuit and a Christmas film, oh I am getting the mood, I have noticed my lads avoiding the mentioning the hatch to the loft hahaha, I will get them come first day of December, just wait and see...

Much love for now.xxxx
