A Pain in the Neck!

Hi everyone, just a quick post to apologise for not making my regular visits to all your blogs.
I've done something silly to my neck (not quite sure what) anyway the outcome is that I'm in quite a lot of pain at the moment and can't move my head down or to the left without yelping. As you can imagine, this makes using the keyboard quite difficult and making cards impossible, which means I'm also bored and not able to do much more than watch TV.
As usual, these things always happen at the most inconvenient times as I have a few special orders to make for the weekend.
Hopefully whatever I've strained will sort itself out in a couple of days and then I will be able to catch up with you all again.

As promised......

Hi everyone, well my DH finally took some photos of the handmade birthday cards that I received from crafting friends (most of them from Joanna Sheen's forum)
The first picture is of all 42 of them and the others are close-ups so that you can get a clearer view of how stunning they all were.
I have never received this many cards before and I was absolutely thrilled with them all, it really made my day very special indeed.
I hope you enjoy seeing them, I certainly enjoyed receiving them all and I'd like to say another huge "thank you" to everyone who put such time and effort into making them, you are all very talented.

I'm back!

Hi everyone, well I'm back and with apologies for being away so long, I hadn't meant my break to be quite this long but "the best laid plans" etc.
I've really missed you all and I've also missed blog hopping. I made the rounds of your blogs over the last couple of days and just couldn't believe how many wonderful things I'd been missing. That was when it really hit me how much time had passed since I last posted, including celebrating yet another birthday (and receiving a total of 47 cards, nearly all hand made from my lovely crafting friends!) I may try and post a photo of the cards if I can get my lovely DH to take it.
One thing I have learned is that I can't manage to make a card and update this blog every day without falling behind on everything else, so from now on I will not be posting on a daily basis. I will probably post a couple of times a week, maybe more if I can but we'll see how things go. Hopefully by doing this I won't need to take another break just to catch up with all my other jobs.

I don't know if you can remember this far back, but a while ago I told you that I had made a little "friendship book" for my BF and a lot of you were interested in seeing it, however as I am totally unable to work our latest camera I had to wait for DH to take some photos for me. I thought that this might be a good project for my first posting, so here are the photos. I hope you like it, I certainly had a lot of fun making it.
