Normally within a post like this I would ramble about how I have still been scrapping but been too busy to post, along with a promise to blog more often. However...I have not really been scrapping much, and certainly very little for myself, so I thought I would update you on what I have actually been doing instead.


On the August Bank Holiday I held a stall at a local-ish craft fair. With the dismal weather, numbers were low but the feedback from those I did chat to was very encouraging.

Then in September I had my birthday. We had a lovely weekend to ourselves, topped off with a great night out.

At the end of September I had to surrender my position on the Sarah's Cards DT. This was sad but it is because I am now working for Papermaze in their shop...Yippee! I have worked two days so far and am loving it!

This last weekend we went away to Surrey for a birthday meal in a hotel. We had a lovely time but unfortunatly Oliver decided to wake up in the night and walk into a wardrobe,resulting in a rather large gash above his eye and half a day trying to get a doctor to see him! :(

Finally, at the end of November I shall be teaching at an all day crop/scrapbooking day in Henley, Suffolk called 'The Big Event'. It promises to be a good day with many other classes, shops,refreshments and a kit to buy which the classes are based around. If you are local enough, then check out all the details here http://www.yourcreations-event.blogspot.com/

I have a few pages I have finished lately but I have not gotten around to photographing them. The weather doesn't really make me want to go out there with my precious paper pages and camera anyway!

So along with:

  • Ear infections
  • Tooth Extractions
  • Car puntures
  • Grandad in hospital
  • Three friends having babies
  • Bathroom tiling
  • Dress making
  • Childminder hunting
  • Parent's evenings
  • Computer/internet problems
  • Fence erecting
  • Water coming through ceiling

it really has been quite an eventful few weeks!
