Pause in life...

Thanks to everyone for reading my blog, but due to some life decisions, I will be putting the blog on hold for the time being. Watch this space and hopefully I will be back shortly with some new stuff and with a fresh mind! Thanks for reading xxx

Market/bootfair bargains

I found a papercraft stall at our local market. I managed to get a neat little set of craft knives in a box for £2.50, a cutting mat for £3 and a lettering stencil for £1.20! I was pretty impressed with my haul, then when I paid for it, the lady running the stall asked me if I made cards myself and handed me a small bundle of card toppers - for free! Then my DS woke up from his nap extremely grumpy, so I tried to get him away from the bustle to give him a cuddle. DD wanted to look at the bits on the stall some more, so the lovely lady gave her a sheet of peel-off flowers! She had great fun decorating them up for her nanny's birthday [tomorrow]. I shall get some pictures of them sorted soon too.

Whilst we're on the topic of pictures, I am still trying to get them sorted out. I want to get some kind of watermark across them to prevent people claiming my work as their own, but haven't quite worked out how to do it yet ;) But as soon as I can, I will get the pictures uploaded :)

Pics soon!

I lost the xD card for my camera. My 'day job' had new 512mb cards in the warehouse for £2, so I picked up the last one last night - so there will be new pictures very soon.

Of course, sod's law says as soon as I installed the new card, the old lost one turned up *doh* but oh well. I'll have one for kidlet pics and one for card pics.

Watch this space!

Some of you have seen these already, but these are the only ones I have uploaded right now.

Any input/comments much appreciated!

Ok, I have little to no idea what I'm doing with this at the moment, so please bear with me whilst I get things going. I intend to use this blog to display my own work as a card maker - hopefully getting my work some exposure. I currently class myself as a beginner in this field of craftiness or creativity, but have had several positive comments on my work and wanted to gain some pointers from others who may be more knowledgeable than I.

I'm still experimenting with both my craft work and this site, so once again, please bear with me whilst I familiarise myself with the controls etc.

Thanks for reading!!
