Living a life as creatively & as happy as possible. Be the best you can be. Have a go & never look back.......
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.
Here is our new little puppy, we've all been heart broken for weeks as our other little dogs Bob & Lilly went missing 3 weeks ago , after many missing posters, posting on ever FB group/pages they still have not come home. As hard as it is to start again with a new little dog, we all needed Patch a little ball of fun , another friend. RIP Bob & Lilly you'll both always be in our hearts, it drives me crazy that I don't know what happened to them, they had so much love & had even had their own birthday party in August!
Welcome Patch may you live a long happy life within our family
Someone wants to put the tree up now, so as the storms rubble around us, and we pray for much needed rain, here DD is trying to get some Xmas happening , only have a few gifts to wrap as some one else hasn't had a chance to shop yet!! What's on your Xmas list???
It's called..... On my table, it's all about my crafts, what I'm working on etc.
Here's today's ......working on catching up on my Project Life, this is how I do it, unload my photos from my cameras & iPhone , beg my kids for any photos that I can use , file all my photos by year then by month , print out a heap of page layouts , get on my laptop, using picasa 3, go through sorting, resizing & editing as I go, save all in a folder on desk top to get printed. With a biro I roughly fill in my printed out sheets so that I know where each of my prints will go. If I did this once a week it would be easy peasey but because I'm 3 months behind its quiet a chore. One I can do on the dinning room table while the rest of the families chilling watching a movie on a Sunday arve.
Until next time , what's on your table please share Wen x
I'd been promising DD that we'd make it, her design, my help & finishing !! Here it is finished baby doll carrier so that she can be a hands free Mummy, it's only when she's older she'll realise that 2 hands still won't be enough!!
We have kittens!!! Our mother cat is Ragdoll x Himalayan , our father cat was the same , but sadly he went missing. So now our kittens have an unknown Daddy :(
Under the desk looking for a mouse, not sure which kind though!! Hope to sell or giveaway these babies.
Feeling depressed as it's getting so dry here, DH is always working away & I had to deal with a dying cow today so I had to suck it up and do what needed to be done, I come inside & my computer seems plagued with some virus that's only trying to get my bank details, could the day get any worse ?? So instead of having an orderly day where I quietly go about my office work, everything hit the fan!!! The only happy spot today has been this........ Of all the random things to end the day I've been cleaning out the shoe cupboard, and now my desk drawer, I just realised that yes I love pretty note books, here's the proof, all given to me by friends & guess what I don't like to write in them incase I mess them up. Now you know one more thing about me. I'm fine tomorrow will be better x
Here we all are, and no the baby wasn't there, her Daddy came by & kindly took the photo!!!
Was the best week end, because I got to meet & make new friends, we all shared our talents & tips, we actually crafted!!! We chatted, we ate lots, we had a week end with out kids, husbands, pets & with very little washing up!!!! What more could we ask for?? Maybe just more space & cooler weather.
Can't you tell I'm so excited, this is my first ever time away for my self, doing what I want & when, meet some new friends, learnt some new things & shared a few ideas if my own too :) here's a few pics
I'm slowly added some bit's & bobs to make our home a more welcoming place, I hope. I'm loving yellow at the moment and for once in my life I'm in fashion as I've noticed that lots if catalogue s & magazines are also highlighting yellow!!!! Yah maybe I started it lol. Here's proof, live this bargin of a mat that we brought !!
Blog make over, trying to be positive & happy & this yellow does that for me!!!
I'm about to up load photos of my things at home so stay tunned, ha ha I'm off to hang out a tonne of half dry washing first!!!
Hi all I forgot to mention that I now have my very own personal shopper, to supply me with my Project Life addiction , for the days when I can't just drive 4 hrs to shop!! Thanks Cathy you'll always be one of my besties, thank you for giving me something to smile about today when I'm in usually in my sad rut!
At long last my local ( only 4 hour drive away) Spotlight shop has finally seen the light & now sticks Project Life kits etc, I've been a follower of Becky Higgins before she even thought up this amazing idea, to simplify record keeping!!
If your looking for a good book to read ,that covers lots of real life issues, country life, romance, & history of this area I live in , etc. Here is a great book that's new out that my Friend Heather Garside has written. Its even available on Amazon, I have a kindle so I brought & down loaded it in a few minutes, then spend all week end reading it. You can also get the Kindle app on your Ipad or Iphone so there's no excuse that you can't read it.
Now I really need Heather to continue her story into a series!!! There is so much still to happen I think.
Please feel free to share Heathers page as we live in a rural area , it's not easy to get your name out all over the country, I'm trying to help as I really think this is a book that everyone could relate to in some way. And read just for pleasure too.
