Tagged - twice

Thanks to Quackas and Ruth for tagging me xx

What was happening 10 years ago - I was a legal Conveyancer and I was a single mum to a scrummy gorgeous 2 year old son.

5 things to do today -

Wrap a present, shop for refreshments for school production, finish off the props, sort out the stage make-up ready for matinee performance today, find out if I'm still going on a Drama residential course this weekend (which I'm not - yay) !!!

Snacks i like - anything savoury, but especially Mccoys crisps, pasties & prawns.

What would i do if i was a millionaire - buy a huge house with lots of land. Convert the garden into a football/cricket pitch and install a huge craft room especially designed for me. Sort my mum out - and then go and visit ALL of my friends in Canada.

Places i have lived - The Wirral, Rochdale

I tag,

See below right for my new tag from Ruth. I also tag the same people above.

Guest Designer

I was really honoured to be asked to do some design work for Carolinez Crafts this month. The fabulous kit I have been using can be seen HERE. Talk about good value for money. I am still working on projects using the kit, and will add these as I get them finished and photographed. Included in this Love Elsie kit, is loads and loads of embellishments, obviously fab papers (heaps of), cardstock, buttons, Love Elsie brads, ribbons ... loads !

Other News

Well its our school production of The Wiz coming up this week. Yesterday was spent doing a full dress rehearsal. Typically, some of the kids can't remember lines, and others can't remember all the words to their songs ... some of the props are still in the making (naughty naughty me) .. and our first matinee performance is tomorrow !
*insert shocked smiley*
However, as it normally the way, by our Tuesday evening performance, all should be well !

Just in case, please keep everything crossed for us !!! I'll post photos after the event.

Love to you all xxxxxx

What type of fruit are you ???

You Are a Banana

You are mellow, easy going, and a total softie on the inside.

People find it really easy to get along with you. You suit most tastes.

And while you're very sweet, you're not boring or ordinary.

You have an attraction to the exotic, and you could show up anywhere... doing almost anything!

You are spirited, energetic, and a total kick to be around.

You're also quite funny. Your sense of humor is on the goofy side, and it fits you well.

I thought this was quite funny, so what fruit are you ???? Please let me know !

Unexpected Gestures ...

I'm not feeling my normal jovial, happy self at the moment. In fact, up until 5 minutes ago, I was feeling downright blurdy miserable.

However ... I received a random PM on Splitcoaststampers from someone that I have never ever 'spoken' to in my life. I won't go into the details of the PM, but I burst out crying because of the kind words contained therein. It was literally nothing, just a few words. But it was unexpected kind words at a time I never expected them. I know the person reads my blog, so I really just want to say thank you ... your timing was impeccable !

Anyway, upwards and onwards.

I went to the Warrington crop on Sunday, and had a lovely day. Great company, great class (Lianne) and a lot of fabulous stash - what more could a girl ask for !!?? Well UNITY actually - I know, I know I keep harping on about them, but if you haven't checked out their online store then you are deranged. They truly cater for the scrapper and the cardmaker - the quality of the stamps are amazing for the price - a real bargain ... and the service by Angela is 2nd to none.

Anyway, the above Book of Me and cards are made using two of the 'kits'. Me, Myself and I and the gorgeous Owl always Love You.

Thanks for popping by - catch ya soon xx
