Ella...All grown up, not my little miss anymore!!!
Hours and hours in front of the mirror experimenting with hairstyles...hair up, hair down, Jabbering away on the phone with her girlie Friends, Texting with her 3 gazillion free texts she seems to qualify for every month and generally getting taller by the day...love these quick cheeky pics I took of her this week...
This is a layout I finished earlier this week too, love this close up of Mia in her santa hat...
Been a busy and stressful week this week, but I have a completely free weekend...so far, and a couple of days off next week too...half term...got to love teaching!!!
So far this morning though I have redesigned and updated my business cards and they are on their way to me, checked and replied to my emails, requested some information from the Body Shop about becomming a Party Demonstrator, been to a couple of the parties and it looks like fun so maybe considering it, planned my new courses that start after half term, entered a free draw to win £500 in Primark vouchers, poked a couple of people on Facebook and had two cups of coffee...and its only 7am...So I am off back to bed for a weekend lie in!!!

...Really...is it...Only Tuesday!!!
Because the week I am having so far feels like it should be at least Thursday night!!!
So much for the blogging daily, that's not happened either...sorry...All the best intentions and then.... Insomnia sets in.... that I am awake between 1am and 4am every night feeling, or the oh my god is it only ten minutes since I looked at the clock in the dark last...and now I know I am going to see every hour before I wake up...It`s truly horrible...not only the frustration in the middle of the night because you know you have to get up in the morning but also during the day when you are sleep deprived and your mood is dramatically effected by the lack of sleep...!!!
Sunday evening however I completed these 12x12 layouts...
...My Snow Babies...
Forgot how much I love doing 12x12...and as soon as I have tidied my desk from completing these layouts I promise to do more.
Off to bed now...Quilt calls!!!

Hello People...did you miss me?
I have been a terrible blogger this year so far so a big sorry to my regular readers who find a little time every day to nip on here and read my waffle...I promise more waffle more regularly and maybe a few crafty bits and bobs thrown in for good measure!!!
Had my first demo of the year on Friday over at Inspirations by Cardcraft Plus in Preston, I met some Fabulous Funny and downright zany people...I was in good company there then, and had just the best day, everyone is so friendly in Preston and the new shop is absolutely beautiful, filled with such lushness that I had to sit with my blinkers on for fear of returning home completely bankrupt, pay it a visit if you are in the area...or just go for the day...there is a Ben and Jerry's just around the corner ;-).
So I will be teaching over in Preston on the 14th April, running my first independent jewellery making class...How exciting is that. I even have the sample ready, now that is just far too organised for me and I mustn`t let that happen too often!!!
Been making a few bits of arm candy, a friend and I are planning on doing a craft fair also in April so thought I had better build some stock up...
I made this last week too, I got the idea from the Crafting Springtime gifts book I bought a couple of years ago that has been collecting dust on my bookshelf ever since...along with the Sew Pretty and Crafting Christmas gifts from the same range, have to think of a name for her because Mia thinks she needs a little name plate and I agree that would be pretty cute.
Talking of Mia, she had her hair cut last week...ten inches...yes I have the lock of hair to prove it no decent photograph yet...although took these yesterday on my Blackberry...look sunshine, real sunshine...No coats, no hats, no scarves or gloves....a lovely spring day...
and look at the little guy!!!
He is growing daily...and eating me out of house and home...the little guy turned 14 this week...and has a meeting at school next week to discuss what GCSE options he wants to take...Do they have GCSE`s in eating and playing football,
Okay off now to do some scrapbooking, still got a pile of "snowy" pictures to work through...pretty much like the rest of the population of Britain I imagine...!!!
