Actually got some crafting done - yay !!

Aaron was out at an all day Paintballing party today, so I had a whole day to myself to craft ! YAY !!!

The card above (for sarah from sarahscards) was made using Stampin Up Very Punny set, Paperamia alphabet set (dontcha just love how cheap they are) BG Lollipop Shoppe (they have just GOT to bring it back), fabby ribbons from Little Silver Hat ... and a couple of Lil Davies heart pins.

Also managed to get a stack of other cards made and 3 layouts. One of my pupils brought in some photographs from a wedding she attended in Pakistan and they were just begging to be scrapped with Rhonna Farrer papers .. HOWEVER .. i've had to keep the layouts pretty plain, because i'm not sure how 'embellished' her mum wants the pages - hence why I've only made up 3 for now until I get a better idea.

Can't wait for tomorrow, as I'll be attending the Warrington Crop and will get even more crafting done ... well inbetween the Costco cookies and pastries .. oh, and pizza hut at lunch time !!

Catcha soon - take care out there xxxxxxxxxxx

Oooops - I forgot my poor blog !!

Thank you to everyone for nagging me to update my Blog !!

Well, I've got heaps of news !

Firstly - we've sold our house - yippee !!! The 'For Sale' sign went up on the Friday, we received a phone call from the Estate Agents on Saturday. The viewers came round on Sunday and they put an offer in on Monday. The buyers Surveyor came round today - so hopefully it will just be a couple of weeks until its done and dusted.

Secondly - I have a new job. Its on top of my normal job, but its an extra 8.5 hours on top which will run through all the holidays as well. The job is basically a Transition Mentor for Key Stage 4 kids - which means that I will be helping selected cohorts through their GCSE exams, and then help them to select specific college/training courses etc.,. It also means that I will be able to follow these cohorts/young adults for a year after leaving school.

For me personally, it means that I can stick with my 'special kids' and not have the stress of worrying what they're up to without me !!

Will add some crafting work shortly !
