Hi everyone, sorry i haven't posted for a while. I have been making lots of cards, and keepsakes, i will take some piccy's of them and put them on here. Im doing a stall on the 15th so i am trying to get all last minute bits done. Still i will never be satisfied, lol.
Have been selling most of my soap moulds on ebay, only a few left thats not been bid on yet (still has 5 days). What has everyone else been up to?
We have had some real nice weather, followed by some horrific thunder storms and loads of rain (terrified of thunder lol).
Its our daughter's 13 birthday on the 24th, so have been buying lots of lovely prezzie's for her (mainly jewellery and perfume) then 2 weeks later its our nephew's 13th (expensive eh)
Right well i have to make a horse and carriage so i will be off.
Take care everyone and remember to keep smiling.

Sorry i've been quiet..

To be honest it makes a change for me to be quiet, lol. I've just felt really miserable.
But now i seem to be ok - Thankfully.
I have been making some cards this week, a few oriental themed ones and a couple of mixed designs. Last night i made some baby shoe keepsakes ( i love doing them they are so adorable) Im doing a craft fair in July so i am starting on some stock, - soap i will do last minute so its nice and fresh.
I have to wait in today -BORING, i am waiting for a catalogue collection, a few deliveries from royal mail ---- ohh and an order for me from Mad About Cards (cant wait), So i am going to sort through all my stuff as im doing a car boot sale with my sister on sunday - i have never done one before so that will be an experience lol
Right well im off, my 2 year old is demanding breakfast lol, i will upload some pics of my cards and keepsakes

Keep Smiling

I never thought you would go so soon Sean. Im sad for what you have left behind.

The song our Dan chose for you broke our hearts in two - Papa can you hear me?

But i had to laugh when memories were spoken - Your love of no nails -(if no nails couldnt fix it, then it couldnt be done) I think your house was built with no nails Sean..

I thought of you with love todaybut that is nothing new

I thought about you yesterday and days before that too,

I think of you in silence, I often speak your name

All I have are memories and your picture in a frame

Your memory is my keepsake with which I’ll never part

God has you in His keeping

I have you in my heart.

Miss you so much Sean xx

Making some soap

I have just been making some soap, strawberry and champagne hearts (smell devine). Also made some strawberry cupcake soaps as well with sugar frosting scented whip, they look good enough to eat.

Have had another day at the park today with the kids, i swear my little one is obsessed with feeding the goats - im keeping asda in business buying carrots lol, i dread going near the swings because once she is on them you cant get her off even when it's pouring down (like today).
My nephew was with me today, he is in shock bless him i just dont know what to say to the poor lad. I lost my dad at 19, 10 years on im still raw, i dont think i will ever get over it, so how can i talk to a 12 year old boy about it?
Dreading Thursaday...
Hope everyone is ok.

Hello everyone,
Not quite sure what to do with a blog but as everyone is doing it i thought i would to, lol.

So a little bit about myself,
Im 29 married with two daughters. My passion in life is crafts, i can honestly say i will try anything once - craft wise. I make soap, and have been known to make some really quite unusual ones, i now make my own moulds so can literally make whatever takes my fancy.
Im in the process of setting up an online website with all my goodies, I make soap,cards,gift tags,keepsakes,favours etc. Have just got a sizzix so im busy cutting loads of different shapes and having great fun. I will post some pictures when i have worked out how to lol.
Right well not sure what else to put, im tired and drained due to the recent death in my family - post below x.
So off to bed i must go.
Keep smiling


Feeling kind of numb at the minute, my brother in law passed away on the 5th june 09 aged 35, sadly he had suffered 3 strokes and major organ failure, he wasnt responding to treatment and sadly the life support machine was turned off, he will be missed so much. My nephew his son will be 13 in August and the thought of him facing life without his daddy breaks my heart. Love you loads and loads Sean, i just hope wherever you may be, that you are no longer suffering.
Rest In Peace.
Funeral is on Thursday 11th June 09 at Acklam Cremotorium at 11.30 am.
