Well, my 3rd day of blogging, not that I'm counting though, lol.

I bought some new shoes a few weeks ago from Clarks and today was the first day that I wore them. I'll pop a piccy on of them, so you can see what they are like. I did say I wanted to keep my blog totally dedicated to crafting, whooops lol, but I just wanted to pop these one, hee hee. These sandals were rather nice and I don't tend to buy that often for myself, but Simon and I had money from my Mum for our 16th Wedding Anniversary last month, (he bought sandals too, lol), so they were a special treat.

Pics are a bit dark, but the weather hasn't done us any favours this summer, has it? Lol.

Anyway, not had chance to make anything at all today, been a bit tired, due to the lack of sleep, lol.

I said I would pop some pics on of a few more TP projects and tomorrow I will upload some birthday cards I made too.
TP Maze Book. The covers are a little bigger than would normally be used for the 'usual' maze book, but I had started making something previously for something else and never got round to completing it, so I used these thin coasters for the covers of this book instead.

This card was one for the DCM, which was to make a christmas card in June.

This was a DCM card from the (Daringcardmakers) and it was to make a card using images etc, that made you feel cold.

I also made a set of 6 christmas tags, this challenge was set by Karen and I really enjoyed making these too. You know how we sometimes forget to make our tags for the extra special presents, or even for any of the presents, so making sets of these could come in handy indeed.

This one was made a month or so ago for a birthday.....

I'm still trying to update my blog with more links etc and also I'm trying to do my banner, but am having problems, so it all looks a bit bare lol, but nevermind though.

Anyway, thanks for having a look, I'll upload more tomorrow sometime. XX

Well, here's my second post in two days, lol.

This is just a quick one, plus I thought I'd better pop some pics on just to brighten it up a bit. I made some cards for the Think Pink Challenges and will be sending them to Di, for her to sell on the stall and raise money for the cause. So, I will pop a few on tonight and then add some more tomorrow. The 'bubblies' will already have seen these those. ;-)

Thanks for taking the time to look. More to follow soon. XX

Hellooooo, I'm back, *waves* lol.

As you can see, this is my new blog. Well, it's a year and two days ago since I last posted. I tried to do it on Monday (18th), but just didn't get round to it. My blog is very basic at the mo, (though probably will be for a while, lol), but I thought I might aswell start blogging again, otherwise the longer I wait to get my template right, you know, all the faffing about etc, I probably wouldn't be blogging for another year, so you may see a few additions as time goes on, but hopefully it will all look alright in the end. I'm just having probs with my banner, but have had lots of tips/advice from my bubbly pals, so I'm sure I'll get it right in the end.

I haven't done much crafting until this past month or so, as for this past year, quite a few changes have occurred in my personal life, mostly positive changes, but some not so good too, but all is going well for the moment and I'm just taking each day as it comes and looking forward to the future.

I have decided that I would like to keep this blog just for crafting purposes, but maybe add in bits and pieces of my daily life, I guess I will just see how it goes. :-)

I'm working full time now, so for the time being, a portion of my spare time has been taken up with my involvement on Bubbly Funk with the Think Pink Challenges that are currently running. I was only speaking to
Karen last night and I mentioned that I don't know how I became enthusiastic again about crafting and Karen thinks it was the Think Pink challenges and I couldn't agree, I couldn't honestly, lol. Di introduced us to the challenges and everyone has been sooo generous with their efforts in their creations and those of us involved are donating our creations to a very worthy cause, Breast Cancer Awareness.

I have a logo for the Think Pink to add to my blog, so when I get a mo, I will add it. :-)

So, thanks for reading my very first post, ha ha and I shall add some more tomorrow.
