28th Feb Monday

Cold out today so after have done the dg duties think it will be a crafting time. Mustn't put the tv on or it will some how switch it's self on to Create and Craft then my fingers will start too twitch and I will end up buying stuff, am exploding out of the house and school room already, hubby will have a fit if I buy any more.

Hope to get a few cards and a book mark done today as hand isn't as painful and I might just be able to get the splint off for a short while.

22nd Feb 2011

Had a call from my youngest son Nathan to say that they had arrived in Cornwall at 7.30 pm yesterday, an 8 hour drive from where we live, said he was knackered.  When his college mates booked the holiday they didn't go into how far it was from here.

Have a mental block on what to do for the next unit of the course, think I will have to have a look through some of my books for ideas.

Wet Saturday 19th Feb

Pouring with rain so got wet through getting the hens and cocks out of their coops and seeing to their food and water.

Hubby and some of his mates have gone off sea fishing today, didn't think they would go but they said you can't get drips wet, lol.

Quick tidy up and wash the clothes youngest son wants to take on Holiday on Monday then it is crafting, crafting, crafting for me today, yipee.

Have a few challenges to get done so am hoping the brain will start working with some ideas.
One I set and I am really stumped as to what to do, lol.

Friday 18th Feb

Well what a day yesterday every thing I tried to make went into the bin, nothing went as planned, argh!

Have to do my course work and have a mental block also have several challenge swaps to get done before the end of the month as well as some birthday cards.

I had promised myself this year each day I would make a birthday card and hristmas card so I wasn't panicking like other years but haven't managed it yet.

Hubby going sea fishing tomorrow so will have the day to lock myself in my craft room and craft away until the cows come in.

Thursday 17th Feb 2011

I feel so down today as yesterday I had to have my beloved pet rock dove put too sleep as he had a brain tumor and he wasn't responding to the treatment this time, last time it strunk it for 6 weeks. He was an in door pet and very tame, used to sit on your head and chirp away. I had recused him as a baby when he had been hit by a car, unfortuately by the time he was well agin he was nearly a year old so couldn't be let free. He was 6 years old.

Happy Valentines Day

Well it is Valentines day and hubby has just come home during his lunch break with a card.
He gave me this lovely jewellery set made by our talented son.

I have just sent these ATCs off for a swap on an ATC group, the theme was Toy town.

As you can see I am a fan of Noddy, think I have all the books from my own childhood and my own boys loved the stories as well when they were younger.

Sunday 13th February

Well this is my first time of having a blog not sure what I am doing at the moment as not very good with computers.

I have started on a qualification in paper craft, I have just had my first review on unit 1, has gone better than I thought it would.

Here are the projects I have submitted.

My first attempt at parchment craft.
This is a book mark card, the parchment design is on the back of the weaved section, the main panel was put through a cuttlebug then chalked.

This was an ATC swap with the other students on the course, The theme was Fairies.
 I printed it from the Crafters Companion Fairies in the Garden cd, I made a matching envelope to just finsh it off.

This one I embriodered the flowers and chalked the card.

Over all I am pleased how they all turned out.
