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.

Wow1 Chrissie, this is absolutely out of this world. It's gorgeous and well worth waiting for. Lovely to see you back and quite understand the new maybe twice a week posting. I find that I have so much to do at the moment too that I can't seem to find the time to blog every single day. Look forward to seeing your creations as and when you have the time.
P.S. Hope you received my 'late' card ok!
