I have no idea what happened but I couldnt upload any images for a while - hence the second post. I know the tag is in an earlier post but I cant delete it! The cream one is a deep box picture Ive made, the colours are creams and white but its not too easy to tell! The mirror started life as a 99p IKEA one. Some Tim Holtz inks and dyes, grungeboard butterflies I made and stamped and dyed, lace and handmade muslin roses later you have the finished product which is a cheer up present for my best friend who is having a bit of a rotten time lately - hope she likes it!
Take care

Time flying by again.

Well despite my good intentions of blogging more regularly time ran away with me again. In my defence I have been busy. Back to school /work again :-( means trying to fit in cooking, shopping, cleaning, ironing etc etc along with working - really is time for me to find a job that makes me want to get up in a morning and makes my heart sing.

A rare thing happened last weekend....I had a night away from home! On Saturday we stayed over at the Hilton Doubletree in Milton Keynes which was wonderful, then on Sunday drove into London to see The Jersey Boys musical in the West End. I didn't know much about the musical before we went (it wasnt my choice it was a surprise) but all the same it was a nice experience. It was lovely to be in London again, it must be 12 or 13 years since I was last there, and it was 4 or 5 years since I had a night away from home. It was about 2.30am when we finally arrived home and I was up for school the next morning! I think its taken me a week to get over it!!!

Those of you who know me will know that last October one of my cats went missing and never returned..............until yesterday! We heard noises in the back garden, when we looked out there was my Pepsi boy talking to Bella (the rescue cat we adopted after he left), however when Emily his sister came into the garden too it was obvious he recognised her...Emily, however, being the Queen of Hormone Dysfunction, decided to hiss at him. To cut a long story short he ran off again but came back a few times later on in the evening, we fed him outside ( he wouldnt come too close ) in the hopes that he would come in but he didnt. We spent the evening calling for him but to no avail. We are just keeping our fingers crossed that he comes back today.

I will leave you with a couple of things Ive been working on of late.....catch you soon.

A few bits and pieces as promised

A few altered boxes and a tag.
Sorry for the quality of the pictures and the fact that one is upside down too!
I may redo them and actually start a brand new blog, its something Ive been thinking of doing for a while.

I'm back !


I'm not going to state the other obvious and say 'where has the time gone' - it went. John Lennon famously said ' life is what happens when you're busy doing other things', he wasn't kidding but goodness know what I've been doing for so long - not blogging though that's for sure.

Lots of decorating has been taking place, including the craft room, oh boy what a revelation............where on earth did I get all that STUFF from? Anyhow, it's back to what passes for normal (in this house) and I'm hoping to make time to blog more regularly.

I wont bore you with the masses of photos I've taken but I will pop a few on here and there.

Here goes:
