Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

WOYWW - 120

I am getting so lax about doing my posts.  My only excuse is that the time is flying by so fast that I cannot keep track of the days, and I am always too late.  I seem to have done very little crafting since we got back from Spain.  I thought I had finished doing all the DVDs and BluRays of the wedding when I found I needed to do three more sets for various people.  In the middle of doing that, I found that I could create BluRays but the same drive refused to play them. Doh.......  That should not happen.  A lengthy correspondence with Roxio resulted from that, but after doing all the things they suggested, with no result, I just uninstalled the lot, reinstalled it, and when that was working I was able to install the BlueRay bit over the top - and it worked!

I need to get back to my room now and actually find a space to work in.  While we have been tidying the house and clearing rubbish from the spare room (before getting the new carpet fitted) anything that could even vaguely be considered as crafting in some way got dumped in my room.  The result is that there is nowhere to sit or work - a couple of days serious tidying required there.  I am suffering from craft withdrawal symptoms, especially having watched Barbara Gray's Pick of the Week.  I cannot wait to set about some of the techniques she has demonstrated, but I must add the new DVD and the stamps to my wish list before I get stuck in. 

I can't wait till Monday when we actually get to see our youngest grandchildren again.  It is over 2 months since we met up, so they will have changed dramatically in that time.  We are lucky with our older grandchildren (the two we share with Shaz Silverwolf) as they live very close and we usually see them at least once a week.

I am off now to get a few things cleared out of the way before the Virgin engineer arrives this afternoon to change our TV box, but I do intend to wander through as many as possible of the lovely desks on view at Julia's place   http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/

Hopefully I will manage some crafting and some photos of my own for next week.   Have a great week all of you.

Your godmother sounds amazing - a real character! I love living near Marlborough, it's got some great shops and is full of character. I love the rolling downland around here too - having lived from north to south in the UK, this is most definitely 'home'!!
Have a great week, LLJ xx

I was wondering where you've been and it's so lovely to have you back. Thank you for your lovely comment on all the samples that I've made for the POTW shows on Create & Craft. I hope you've enjoyed all the shows and I can't wait to see what you create, once you get back into the craft room!
Love Emma x

Wow you've been a busy girl! You must be going nuts not being able to craft but at least it's not for lack of want, so that's good. Hope you get everything straightened around soon and can't wait to see what lovely things you'll be creating! Have a good week!

Nice to see you back Maggie. Loved the post from Spain but you didn't say who was getting married! I looked at earlier posts but couldn't find anything, lol. Hope you get your house stuff completed soon so you can get back to the important business of crafting.

G'day Maggie,
Sounds as though levitation might be in order for getting into the craft room for a while. What a busy time you're having. Nice to visit.

Sounds like you have been busy with computer nightmares! I have no clue and any problem usually begins and end with a frantic call to one of my children. Thank goodness they are very patient with their dear old mom. LOL
Happy very belated WOYWW

I just read about your scam story. Did you mean 7000 people? 1000 out of 700 didn't make sense to me. Of course, I could have read it wrong. Look forward to seeing a working desk next week. Hope everything is sorted out by now. And yes, I realize I'm very late this week.
