While I’m not getting much chance to craft……..

here a link to a marvellous blog I found via one of my blog rolls links today – Zindorf – oh my gosh, she really does have a way with creating scene images from stamps.  Enjoy!

No really in the mood today

Great Grandma passed away last night – she had reached a truly wonderful age, but it was definitely time to go to a better place.

Today’s the day I get my spinner

just waiting for Guy to drag his sorry carcas from bed, and get showered and we’re off to Creative Living to pick up my spinner unit.  I actually think if they have another one going I will get it – for personal use though, as I like to have things out on show, and it could stand in the studio to hold my every growing colletion of stamps.

Ever growining? Hell yessssssss, bought more (cheered on by Toodles) yesterday – some of the new Sugar Nellies (and sold older ones).  I clearly, wasn’t quick enough off the mark and missed some of the new designs, they were already showing as out of stock.

We had a bit of bad news last night, Guy’s Granny is very sick, and his Mum thought that she may not make it through the night – very sad news, but she has had a really good innings – she’s 104 – but is now very, very frail also blind, bed ridden, very, very deaf, and has dementia – so it’ll be a blessing to go to a better place I think.  The kids love their Great Granny very much, and it was very upsetting to have to prepare them for what is inevitably going to happen, but they both realise that she’s had a wonderful life, and is looking forward to being with Great Grandpa (she’s been a widow for about 30 years, as Guy’s Grandpa died at a comparatively young age).

It’s called a Tag Curler


and here’s a demo for it (unfortunately not of the moving picture variety, but you can get the idea).

Cute Card Thursday – No. 7 – Hey Chick

this week’s challenge was to create something for a female – perfecto – it’s Paula’s birthday on Saturday, so I used my new Chicken stamp.


OMG, I had such trouble with the MM magnetic stamps I’ve lost the handle that came with them, and had to use a magnetic block – know I remember why they’ve pretty much never been used.  I have to say that they are just the perfect size, obviously I just need to persevere with them though.

Quite a plain card, and I’m not sure if there’s something missing.  Possibly I should have matted the pattern paper down the middle.

I saw one of them there MM ribbon tag attachment tools – sorry, I know that’s a really bad description – I think I might want one.  Rather than rely on that dodgy description, I’ll try to find a demo clip of it.

Lovely shiney black flat monitor and flirting with a new look for the blog

wow, I now have amazing space of my work desk, I can actually have room for papers, filing tray, Dave the Cricut and a pile of flotsam, and still surf in comfort.

I’m also flirting with a new style blog design, which is clean and simple….just wish I could change the colour from blue to purple ’tis all.

I’ve had to to take the day off from work as I had no child care and the pesky teachers at Toodles school have gone out on strike, which is annoying, but has in fact given me loads of time to sort out her bedroom – her lovely white and stylish Danish desk and mantle is being delivered about 4.30 this afternoon.  Oh my gosh, how I love Danish furniture – in my dreams I have a whole house full of it – lovely clean white wooden furniture no mess, beautiful green, purple, red and black accessories in various rooms – of course, it’ll never happen with two kids, a dog a cat and a husband, but a girl can dream!
