Book giveaway

I'm back from my blogging break, hasn't the weather been fabulous - just like summer.  I can't remember the last time we had so many days of sunny weather all together.  It's much cooler today but I'm ready for a break from the sun.  I'm not one for sitting out in the sun anyway but it's good that the kids can play outside.

I've had this book awhile and have nearly finished it, I won it in Vintage Mum's book giveaway and the lovely Cate put in a bookmark for me and a little chocolate heart, so thoughtful.  Cate won this book from Jille at Love to Craft.  Jille had received it from a friend at work and thought it would be nice to read and pass on.  And that's what I'm going to do.  If you would like to receive this book please leave a comment.



I forgot to show these in my last post, H bought them for me for Mother's Day.  They have only just been thrown away, so pretty :)


This is what L did for me at playschool, very cute!


This is what H made me at school.


Handmade gifts mean so much more.

I hope everyone has been enjoying the lovely weather and the Easter hols are going well for all those with children.  I've realised that I have been blogging for a year now and I shall be doing a giveaway very soon.

New adventure

It's lovely and sunny here today, they reckon it should be around 20 degrees, I'll have a bit of that :)

I've decided to embark on a new venture, I'm going to be starting papercrafting classes in my local area.  It's in conjuction with a company called Stampin' Up!, they are an American company and I use their materials in the class and hopefully sell some of them too :)

So I started up another blog Crafting Up a Storm to talk about this.  If you want to have a look please do though don't feel obliged to follow!

I've been putting up posters and this week I have been posting leaflets through doors, around 150 a day, which takes about an hour.  I've not had one call!  Very disheartening but the exercise wont hurt I guess.

If anyone has any tips then I'd love to hear them or if anyone lives in the Leicestershire area and are interested get in touch!






Both of these cards were made using Stampin' Up! papers and/or stamps.

Thanks for listening
