Welcome to my place, grab a cuppa, this blog is about all the little things, the moments in my busy life, the things that make me happy: things I see, sew, scrap, cook or create. A place to share my love of family, crafting & photography. An escape from the daily grind, a place to relax, share & smile. Thank you for visiting.

Instagram Link

Hey, sorry it looks like I've had a holiday from blogging, my excuse is that I mostly share all my crafty endeavors over on my IG account these days, I love the simple easy up load, ( because even though we now have up dated to what's supposed to be wonderful internet for country people, it's not as good as the old set up so, major sad here, yes it's cheaper which is great.....more money for crafty goodies ) ha ha ha  any way back to the story......I love the daily inspirations & the time saving that it allows me the instant sharing of projects as they happen, the right now this is what's going down. Be warned it's not all about crafting, mostly it's about real life, work, gardening, cooking etc it's life & it's happens even when like me I've been struggling to find the pause button for the last few years. Feel free to follow me on IG, Westerngirl

New Puppy App Layout

Here is our new Puppy Davis, with his proud owner. After losing too many little darling dogs we are all hoping that he will be with us until old age. Todays cuteness.

Oh if your interested in this layout I made it on my ipad using Project Life App, you can also use it on your android phones or tablet too.

I created the page in the Project Life App & then saved it, opened it in another app called  Rhonna Designs , in this app I added the extra writing & decoration embellishments. Saved it & then I can get my 12 x 12 printed, either in a page or make a photobook.

Looks to be a fail, I was hoping to up load to my blog from my phone as this is where most of my photos of projects etc are quickest to get to. Looks like it's a fail as can't see my photo.
How disappointing. I'll look into a different app & see how I go. Until next time have fun.


Testing blogaway, mobile blogging app to see if my photos will show up.

MY OS Freind Thank you

A quick hello & a big thank you to my friend that I've never met IRL, Rosey , every time that I get stuck with giving my blog a tidy up Rosey always comes to save it!!! She is so talented & not just with codding, check out her blog & all the beautiful things she creates. Thank you & I so wish I could meet you for a cuppa in person.

Podcasts a must

Hey how are you all today, I've just discovered the The Scrap Gals Podcasts ,Tiffany & Tracy,  talk about interesting funny ladies, that help you to think about all sorts of things, mostly scrap related but also just lots of other stuff as well. On my android phone I have downloaded the App called Podcast Republic, search for "The Scrap Gals" and you have it, you can down load these interesting talks!!!  I've found my next favorite thing ha ha I sometimes listen to talking audio books while doing mundane jobs such as house work & even when I'm mowing on the ride on mower.

What have you listened to, what do you like to do while doing chores to help the jobs get done that much quicker? Feel free to comment & add links to your own blogs.

Hi all, if your visiting from my newly joined FB group, welcome. As you can see I really need some followers & hope that you come back & visit me often. I'm about to give this blog a face lift or maybe ever a complete move !!!! Hold your seats it could get scary as I'm a bit blog challenged to say the least.
