Starting Again .......

I can't believe how long it is since I blogged *insert shocked smiley*

So, I'm going to start again.  I've literally just got back to Lancashire after going to my second 'home' - Ireland.  My first home will always be my parents home.  No matter where I go in the world, home is home.  However, my son and I have recently been travelling to Ireland to visit his relations - and thats where our tale begins ... again ....

Awards !

I received these two awards from the gorgeous Hannah from THIS BLOG .
The first one is the Honest Scrap Award and you have to list 10 honest things about you.

1. I smoke. 2. I'm stubborn. 3. I'm loud (occasionally) 4. I find it hard to let go of the apron strings. 5. I love singing, anywhere and everywhere even though i'm crap. 6. I feed Jack Jnr under the table even though he has food in his dish. 7. I used to bite my toe nails (can't reach now) 8. I hate all insects - anything that creeps, crawls or flies. 9. I have a shocking memory. 10. I'm a terrible for doing things last minute. They get done, but always last minute.
The second Award is to confess to 5 things you're addicted to so here we go:
1. Scrapbooking stash
2. Handbags
3. Shoes
4. Everything has to match
5. Cheese and onion Seabrook crisps - yum yum

Now I have to nominate 7 people to pass these awards on to, but rather than do that, I would like everyone who reads this blog, to please accept these awards, and forward them on to those bloggers in your life.
Thanks for reading !

Luxury Weekend ...

I spent a glorious weekend down in Bedford with Gwyneth. Honestly, it was like staying in a 5* Hotel !!! That woman has more stamina than I will ever have, and kept me up into the wee small hours laughing and chatting. I really managed to completely chill out and was extremely sad leaving to go home. If you're reading Gwyn - once again, very many thanks xxxx

The twinchies and frame above is a gift that I made for Gwyneth. I used all TH dye ink pads, mostly TH stamps together with Hero Arts, Autumn Leaves and UNITY. Lots of sandpaper, distressers, blossoms, dye cuts etc. were used, and some of the images are 2/3 layers of stamping.

Thanks for popping by !
