Also pictured is Rachel Greig from Darkroom who sponsored Angella Peardon's class 'As You Turn in Life', just had to take a photo, I also managed to get away to do a Rachel Greig class, awesome lady...

New beginnings

Well it has finally happened...after 25 years of running a retail store, we have now closed and will be working online and at shows. Today is the first day of the rest of my life, Andrew's and mine that is. It feels a little funny not having to open a store after so many years!!
Clearing and moving a shop is worse than moving a house...boy do my bones know that! Hopefully I wont know myself!!!! Still putting things in their place, but soon all will be done.
Need a break though, need some craft time....soon, yippee!!!

Long time no post...

It has been a long time since I have posted....happy news though!! We have now closed our shop front after 25 years and are now working online and at craft shows. Still in the process of moving everything, our deadline is next week...we needed a good clean out....we actually found our first ever internet order over 10 years ago!!!
Itching to get back to designing and having a good play!! I am really enjoying all the DT work on the NING site and I am itching to play with my friend Azza!!!

Christmas Time
















Just a quick view of my foyer, were I like ot set up the family christmas tree. My decorations are handmade from many years of crafting, 25 actually. I always enjoy adding something extra, I do love christmas time and decorating for my family is always a pleasure. When the kids were younger they would help, now I just take my time and enjoy the experience and the joy of christmas.

Christmas Time

Feeling very Christmassy at the moment, so the tree will go up in the next few days...just love christmas. I like it better when the kids helped, they are older now and its not fun for them anymore, still fun for me...I put up some of their ornaments that they made at school and it makes me remember when they were little and controllable. Hoping to take some pics to share as my ornaments are handmade, I made a few every year and now I have a collection...
