OMG ... yes its a card .........

if your wondering what I've been doing lately..... well its a long story
I have been making cards for friends and commissions,working,juggling life between school meetings and physio meetings and school meetings again. Next week is full of more meetings (when will they stop ) Oh and my TV blew up followed by the vac(which I managed to fix, the vac that is). I've been having a thorough sort out of my craft shed while its been freezing and
getting my mojo back while all the snow has melted.
Next week its more wedding invite stuff to do so in the meantime here's a lovely little hedgehog I thought I'd colour with my copics, the flowers were freebies from Jasmines-cards
I had to reinvest in a guillotine as mine was defunct (see another thing to break ) but I'm back up and running again now

arty farty angle oooh this is different

well come back soon I'm on a roll now so should have more for you to see.

It's Joshua's B'day tomorrow and wow I remembered to make him a card.
Should be a fun day if I know Josh.

Haitian Disaster Relief- Make a difference

On January 12, 2010 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, leaving in its wake devastation so overwhelming that the Haitian people and their leaders can only look for help from the outside to cope. Stampin Up is offering some help

From now until 28 February, 2010, £1 from every Greenhouse Gardens stamp set sold will be donated to the American Red Cross’ International Response Fund. The Red Cross is already well-established in Haiti, and this money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.
See here how Shelli and SU continue to help out.

Who invented the xbox and DS ......

I would just like to thank them (I think )
I have not seen my boys for the last few days it seems apart from the refilling pit stop times Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, where all I here is them munching and discussing the place they last came against Mario and who survived the longest against Mordor.
They have not argued ( I wont say once but not very often)and the house is strangely quiet. I'm beginning to wonder if its still my kids up there.
Now I find I have a puppy training camp upstairs " Jack" and" Bongo" are being shouted from every corner of the room it seems.
Saving grace is I don't have to clean up after them I guess.
I'm off to the craft shed Aidan's birthday is on Tuesday and his card needs to be made along with alot of sorting out of some junk in there too
Happy Sunday Everyone
Hugs Toni : )

So its a New Year.....

and positive thoughts ........... being sent out to you all
2010 year ahead I will be relaxing and taking time to think.
Sometimes in the thick of it I find I dont have time to just sit back and think and reflect and reevaluate my time so this year I plan to do that every so often.Ive made no cards over the Christmas season I just spent the time with family and friends and enjoyed it .
The new school term begins on monday as does my crafting time although this year I am determined to not get stressed,careful planning is needed and started
Lets hope it continues.....
So watch this space if you want to see some creations over the year
I wont say they will be daily but they will be here for all to see....
Hugs Toni : )
