Craft Day

On Saturday members of the Craft Swap Forum that I belong to met up in Oxford for a day of crafting and chatting.........mainly chatting. I had a great time meeting new friends and 'old'. I did manage to get a little crafting done and decorated this giant tag. Using materials supplied by Simon....thank you.


I've been busy this morning with my Cricut.

The first card I made this morning is for a friend I work with who is getting married at the end of July (I'm ahead of myself for a change).

The second card is just a simple Ruby Wedding card. I just wish I had my Cricut a couple of years ago when my parents celebrated their Ruby Wedding, I could of really got carried away.

n is for..............

I've just altered this letter n for a friend of mine as a thank you. These wooden letters are great. I've never altered one before but I can feel a trip back to the shop for some more now. I painted it with acrylic paint, added a chipboard flower which can be purchased from, and stamped on it. Simple but I think it looks lovely.

Feed me

Found this lovely picture of my daughter feeding herself with Weetabix. I think her face shows just how proud of herself she was-mind you, you can't see the state of the floors and walls. I've experimented with doodling around the edges of the paper/cardstock with this layout.
