The new addition

Finally,a picture of the reason that I have been pre-occupied for so long!!

He is still baby no name and will be 6 weeks on Friday. He has been keeping me extremely busy,but seems to have settled really well in the last few days,giving me chance to make a few thank you gifts for all the pressies he received.
I'll keep you posted on the name situation!

My Leave of Abscence

Ok Ok so I have been away for quite some time now and have found very little time to be even the slightest bit creative,however, this is down to some fabulous news.

I am proud to announce the arrival of the latest addition to the family!!! Our new little boy was born on the 16th January and after an agonising last few months of pregnancy he is making his presence truly felt!!

With the little one and the fact that we moved 10 days before christmas,things have been extremely busy around here.

Hopefully,in the very near future we will be launching a new website,new blog and just new beginnings in watch this space!!

The long awaited pictures

At long last,the pictures are here as promised,although a little late!!!

This card is an acetate sheet with an xmas peel-off finished with a midnight clue card blank inserted underneath to give the effect of a night sky.

The reindeer in this card have been attached to a disc behind the first panel which makes the reindeer spin and move from one end of the card to another as you tip the card up and down, aptly named a slider card.

This is simply a set of 5 thank you cards embellished with acetate pictures.

These are actully part of a set of 26 xmas miniture cards for my daughter to hand out at christmas to her classmates.

This is a keepsake set for a new baby. The card is a gate fold 10cm card in brown and beige,making it suitable for a new boy or girl. The front two 'doors are embellished with fabric teddy bears and the words new baby and the inside is has a new baby verse mounted inside. The candle has a larger version of the fabric teddy on one side with the words 'a new baby' on the opposite side. The other 2 sides are embellished with gold peel-off baby booties.

So there you go,much longer than expected but they are finally here.

I don't believe it

As promised, I took pictures of all of my latest projects, switched the computer on, plugged in the camera and...................the camera has decided that it will no longer work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lately I have noticed that the pictures were not coming out at the same quality that they always had and now I am thinking that it was my cameras way of telling me it was going to 'die'.
So I have reserved a new camera online tonight and I will be marching down to the high street tomorrow to pick it up. Luckily the pictures automatically save to the memory card,so all I have to do is put the memory card in the new camera when I get it.
I am determined that these pictures will be uploaded,even if it kills me....

On a Roll!!

Well I know I haven't posted much lately but I have a very good reason. I have been bitten by the inspiration bug and have been busy beavering away making and creating.
I have finally managed to get in gear and go for it,resulting in lots of new projects.
And to prove it,by the end of the day I will have the pictures uploaded.......promise!

Will it ever end!!

Hi all

Question...Why is it that when we have so much to do,we end up ill?!
I was adamant that my website would be up and running by the end of October,but have recently been hit by a bug which has put me out of action for a week. A week?,I hear you say,that's not so bad but on top of looking after the house and the kids,tying up loose ends at work so I can take my maternity leave AND trying to make enough stock to open the website, a week feels like forever.
Still, I have had chance to sit down with pen and paper and do all the 'boring and uncreative' stuff involved with getting my website off the ground and I can see the light!!!!
I am determined to get out some of the cards that I have managed to make and take some snaps so you can see what I have been up to!!

A drive in the country

Aaaah,sunday afternoon and I'm still feeling rather relaxed from yesterday.
What started out as a quick drive up to the local Sainsbury's ended in a family day out in Kent!!
With some food supllies in the back of the car and several cd's just for good measure we headed up down the M20 towards Kent.
Although the weather left a lot to be desired,it was unbelievably refreshing to see all the cows,sheep and other animals freely roaming the countryside.
And with the help of the internet on my phone we managed to find a local craft centre that was a treasure cove for any crafter.
With bags full of materials and 'inspiration' we found a nice spot for dinner a cosy cup of hot chocolate before headeing back to the car and finding our way back home. So now,with lots of new 'toys' to play with, I'm off for an afternoon of crafting and making a start on the christmas rush!!
