Got my Ma and Pa arriving on Friday in preparation for our Xmas shopping on Saturday. Am very excited about Steve and I spending the day together.
No crafting again today :o( but here is a pic of our card to George. It is really lovely and bright with some fun images.
It was made using a sheet from Kanban - a company I have not used before but I have to say I will again. The card stock was really good quality and the print quality excellent. Can certainly recommend!!!

about the cover of my journal!
And I should think it will change again before the week is out LOL!
Well how wet and windy has it been again? Thankfully we are not affected more severely by the weather has some people have been.
Last night I finally managed to finish my Xmas cards to the family and am going to make a few more 'normal' cards out of left over Xmas stash (of which I still seem to have alot!!!!!!)
Photos of cards will follow but by the time I got home from work today the light was pants so will aim to take pics tomorrow.
I am really enjoying crafting again at the mo - its just a shame I don't have more time to do it.

A relative of mine has lost his wife very suddenly and I felt that I should make the effort and make a card.
However, I was short of ideas and just didn;t know where to start. So I starting trawling on line galleries and finally found a suitable card on the Do Crafts website.
Yes its simple but it says all that I need to say.
Today I have had Harry and Steve at home following bad reactions to the Swine flu jab. Both have been in bed most of the day and were still there when I went to work this afternoon. They seemed to have perked up though so fingers crossed for tomorrow.
Talking of tomorrow, I am finally getting my haircut after 5 months!!! So looking forward to a tiny bit of pampering even if it is just a wash, cut and blowdry.
In the evening we have Parent's evening for George tomorrow evening which I am really looking forward to. He seems to be really settling down with his new teacher and actually wants to go to school!!!! Its really lovely to see him finally be happy.
Am off to chill infront of the tv for the evening xxxx

It's the inlaws Ruby Wedding Anniversary at the end of the month (40 years gulp!!!!!)
Here is a card I made for the occassion. To be honest its a little frou frou for me but I think they will like it.
Its nice to finally have some pictures of crafting to show on the blog :o)
Life has been manic as usual and with Xmas rehearsals, work etc I think its going to be even more so until the boys break up next month.
I have started my Xmas shopping and planning on doing a big shop at the end of the month with hubs. I love this annual event as its one of the few times Steve and I get to go out with no kids!!!
Xmas cards are almost done I think. Am sooooo trying to be organised this year - hmmmmm we'll see!!!!
