as the end of 2012 draws to a close I have made a resolution to blog again!
However, as this blog was mainly dedicated to crafty pursuits I have started a new blog which will be more of an online diary, but I would still love to see you all there.
Please come and find me at my new blog
40, Single with rats!!!
I still pop by the crafty world from time to time, but due to recent events haven't joined in as I would have done in the past. I still enjoy seeing all your creativity and will endeavour to get back into it myself in 2013.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all

So, do you remember a couple of weeks ago I promised to pop back soon and share the cards I made after Christmas??
Well finally, only a few weeks later, here they are!
Seriously I don't know where the time has gone!?
It was only just after Christmas the other day and now its half way through Feb and my BIG birthday looms! What happened??
To be honest I'm not quite sure where the last forty years went either?
I don't think I am where I thought I would be at this time of my life but I'm not altogether sure where I thought that would be either?
Does that make sense?
I certainly couldn't have imagined doing what I do, and certainly didn't think I would still be just me.
And speaking of THAT - I had a card today!! Yes a Valentine's Card!!!
Do I know who it's from?
No Not really.
There was someone I had thought it might be but he says no, and in some ways I am relieved. That could have been awkward!! Then there is the man with the really nice voice who I have been chatting with recently. Could it be him? I dunno, I've never met him. Surely he can't be that daft can he? He hasn't said anything today.
Look I never said I was a Detective!!!
Ho Hum. Maybe someone will say something and give the game away?
In other news, little Fred got fed up with Barney always being the one who had special trips to the vet in the car with mummy, so decided he would try to trump him in the most spectacular way. He hid a nasty abscess from me and only let me find it when it was HUGE and had burst and was a nasty open sore on his tummy, that panicked me late on Sunday night and ensured I did not get any sleep!
So, some hundredandsixtytwomillion pounds later he now has a very neat scar up his tummy that makes him now look like a very small pencil case!!!
Me - panic over, beans on toast for the next two months til I can afford to eat again!!
Shame the mystery man couldn't arrange a dinner date - am getting hungry!!!

You all know I haven't been here for a while and that's just because I have been busy living, not scrapping, and therefore although I have had lots to share you don't want to read a load of waffle without any pretty pics do you?
I'm going back there in June - for a BIG celebration - because I am turning........................forty (yikes!!) in a few weeks.
I plan a grown up dinner party here to mark the occasion, but really am celebrating by going for a mega three week trip to the place where my heart belongs!! Sadly, I will have to return as Visa difficulties mean I can't stay there indefinitely unless I find myself a hot yank who wants to marry me??? :(
Have worked and played and laughed very hard!!
Had a lovely late Crimbo at Grannywens and had a lovely crafty day with her making cards - I will share here as soon as the gloom lifts and I can photograph them properly. In the meantime, here is a bloomin' awful picture of a card I made for a girl at work who is escaping to have a baby! Excuse the crappy phone pic.
I've had loads of ideas of things to make and paint in my head but none of them have materialised into anything tangible yet - however, the arrival of my new Gogo kit this morning may well change all that?
See you all soon - promise
