Blooming Fireworks!!!

I'm no killjoy, but i'm by the 5th November each year, i'm sick of the sound of fireworks going off til the early hours. It starts for weeks now before, and weeks after. I used to love it as a kid, but when you have little ones of your own, and it comes to bed time, its annoying!

Talking of little ones, mine is poorly again. she was poorly for a week before our holiday to Cyprus (it was her first week of playschool), and now shes poorly again (her second week of playschool). All mothers will agree with me, thats its horrible to see your little ones suffer. Poor thing has a fever, sickness and a tummy ache. i hope shes better soon.

No crafting so far this week, but i do hope to do some layouts soon. took some lovely photos of the lovely cypriot sights that i'd like to use.

I cant believe it!! I won Octobers 'Little Silver Hats' prize draw!!

I never, ever win anything, and today I received a lovely package containing 2 packs of gorgeous 'Autumn Leaves' Stamps-Flourishes and barcodes, as well as a fantastic Autumn Leaves Perfectly Clear book. At first I was very confused as I didnt order them, and believed they had been sent by mistake. So i immediately logged on to inform the lovely Lianne at Little Silver Hat that they had obviously been sent by mistake. On doing so, i noticed an email from Lianne stating that i'd won Octobers prize draw! I was stunned and over the moon to hear so, and its really made my day.I love Autumn Leaves stamps, and to win two sets and the Perfectly Clear book has really made my day. To also win it in Octobers draw is very touching to me, as I celebrated my 30th birthday in October so it was like an extra special pressy! Thanks again Lianne-you've made my day!

Such a bad, bad blogger!!

I cant believe its been so long since i last blogged! Alot was going on around the last time i last blogged that i completely forgot about it LOL!!

In terms of crafting, the wedding invitations are going well. i have managed to complete a couple of orders now and thankfully, they have been well received. i've had other orders but at the moment i'm so busy organising things at home, that i've had to pass them up.

In terms of my personal life, we went on holiday to Cyprus to see our family and we loved it so much we have decided to emigrate there!! I took loads of photos of the local sights, and had so much fun with the photography. I love blue skies and beautiful sunsets, that i cant wait to get out there.

I started Cheryls Painting with Life photography course too, which was great fun. Unfortunately as we went away on holiday half way through, so i didnt get to enjoy it as much as i know i would've. I hope to catch up with the missing modules as soon as i start putting things into place for our move.

So thats a round up of some of the things thats been going on since i last blogged. i hope to get back into it again as of tomorrow (i hope LOL)

thanks to those who have continued looking at my blog in the meantime, i do appreciate it
