A look back over the year!!

Its that time again where i like to reflect on the things ove made over the year, i like to share some of my favourite creation,
I know ive not shared much lately and thought this may be a nice way to get back into my blog,
 
Its really hard to choose my favourites as for one or another reason i like different kinds of cards craft,
 
So here we go!!!
 
I chose this card as i love the image lol, the papers are a bit naff but the paper twine and sentiment along with the image make me like it,
 Here is a photo frame i did for one of my fave mates, she has a neutral kitchen and i knew she wanted something to put in it, i love the sentiment here too,
I chose these as they were my first large order of wedding invites and took bloomin ages to make lol, the image was drawn by a 4 year old friend and i copied them onto the invites,
I like the simplicity of this one and of course it looks like one of my favourite books he he he (can you guess which books)
I chose this one as i love the subtle blue colouring,and the large flower and elastic,
This one i like because of the different style of baby card, i was asked to go neutral but for a girl and this is what happened, 
here is a piece of jewellery i made, the reason i chose this is because i like the mix of colours,
I loved this card as soon as id done it, you know when you see cards on other peoples blogs and know you wont ever be that good, well this card gave me a boost, its not the best in the world i realise but i love the mix of colour and the ribbons.
I chose this as i wanted to add a masculine card in lol and this isnt a bad one to share, 
 This card was really simple and easy to make, but the reason i chose this is that i was really pleased with my colouring of my image,
 I love the goth style of this card. and purple and black isnt seen that much so for that reason this is in my faves list as well
This choker necklace is really pretty and made out of lampwork beads, its simplicity and plainness adds to why i like it,
nearly there lol, are you still with me lol,
i made this card for the six weeks holidays and end of term, for my lads teacher, i like this because i like the embellishments on it,
And last but not least here is a keepsake book i made for another lovely friend of mine, each page has a lovely friendship quote on it, and the whole thing was made from scratch
 
So know i wander if anyone else fancies sharing some of their favourite creations with me? however many you want to,
 
If you do join in please leave me a link and ill pop by your blog and have a nosey, and also if you do could you leave a link to my blog to help people have a nosey at mine
 
hugs amd merry christmas xxx

A little something from me

Hi guys
Im so sorry to be a crappy blogger!! im still so busy with my work, and ptfa etc etc, its our school fayre tomorrow eve and i have a jewellery stall there, which i cant run as im at work lol, my sister is watching it for me till i get there lol,
crikey ive worked my guts out for 15 years and drove myself nuts with the excessiveness of my work, but nothing like now lol, the phone is never switched off and i always have phonecalls/emails to make etc lol,
-
anyway i thought id share a couple of pics with you and a creation i have made that was for an order i managed to squeeze in.
-
Firstly i wanted to share my boys with you, they were hanging the last xmas decs on the tree, they mainly decorated it themselves, the tinsel is all over the place but thats where they put it and isnt christmas all about the kiddies?
we went with silver and purple this year and i have lovely glass decs for the tree with the odd handmade dec that the boys have made as they always go on no matter what the colour scheme, id decorate the whole thing in my boys creations if i had enough!!!
Here is a pic of me with my dad and sister from this last weekend out on the town lol, I am the fattest one if you didnt know lol, i cant shift the weight!!! but then i love my food so its probs my own fault lol,
And here is a creation for the order, they wanted something guitar lol, and its for a chap ive made for 3 yrs on the trot, and one of those were already guitar lol so thought id do something different, again its plain but i have NO crafty time at the min so this is all i had time to make,
I hope that was a bit of a decent post from me lol,
im off on my last holiday of the year saturday morning, we are going to a lodge at slayley hall, so i have 2 fancy massages booked and hubby id going quadding with the eldest lad, there is a sauna jacuzzi and spa in the lodge we are in and we are with excellent friends and thier kids. we have a theatre trip organised as well, and of course lots of fun and games,
i may not be about again for another week as internet connection in cumbria in dodgy weather may be tricky lol
