Yesterdays Crafty Alley craft club went very well. We made bunting, and a 3D flower card, discussed the merits of the BigShot and generally had a good time! Why is it that 3 hours crafting goes faster then any other 3 hours?????
Anyway, lots of get well wishes for Robyn who was unable to join us, You were missed!!

Ashtons GGS swap

video
Thank you so much to Robyn for a really great night... eleven women, card making and the nicest chocolate ever!! I had great fun, even the mistakes are pretty! and thanks to her great demonstration i probably have to buy a Big Shot now! but then again i might get the punches... there was just so much to learn, Thanks again Robyn, and especially for the halloween papers, that was really kind.
See you on Saturday,
F.x.

Aghhhhh! i should have published these pictures in reverse! The first one is the back cover, the last is the front.... the black frame has only been stuck down at the bottom so a photo could be added. The only thing i added from my stash were the little gems, everything else came in the kit.
Fx.
























This is the mini i made from a kit from Marion at apieceofcraft.com. Lots of lovely vintage stuff. Best of all was that Molly helped to make it, she is 15 and usually hates anything to do with scrapping!
Hi, its Sunday morning and a beautiful day - I was supposed to go to mount Brandon today, but Zac has a high temperature (39 degrees) so i'm here at home with him. Hopefully he will feel better soon!
I'm looking forward to next months GGS swap already, it'll be Halloween month - my favourite time off year_ so that will be really good fun for a mini book theme. I n fact i think i'll make two and keep one myself!
Here is a question...what do you do with your mini books? how do you display them?
mine are on book shelves, but facing out so i can see the covers, that takes up alot of space though, so i was wondering what other people did with them!
Its time to give Zac more medicine,
Enjoy the day! Fx

Hey everyone (i can say that now that there are more people then just me looking at this!)

I'm looking forward to next week when i get to go to a new friends house to learn all about stamping . Robyn www.injoystampin.com has very kindly offered to host an evening for our craft club. This women knows alot about card making!
I got a scrap kit today from Marion at a piece of craft, i collected it from the post office at 9am, and am amazed that i had the patience to not open all the bits and pieces untill i got home from work. Its lovely, really cool vintage stuff, and tags!! my favourite thing at the moment.
I was going to make an altered art book, but when it came to actually doing it i couldn't - it goes against my nature to deface a book. However, Marion sent some pages of a book in the kit and since i didn't tear it up why not use it??!! (thanks Marion!)
So, i'm going to make an altered book/tag/creation using Que Sera Sera papers from The Crafty Alley Shop www.craftyalley.com they are really vibrant and busy!
Thanks so much to Ashton, Robyn and Amanda for looking in,
So, after i've loaded the dishwasher, emptied the washing machine, helped Molly and Zac with their homework i'll do some scrapping ( or just crawl into bed with a book!)
Love,Felicia x

Its Tuesday and the sun is supposed to be shining, but so far there is no sign of it....
I'm going to post the GGS album to Ashton today because i have no idea how long it will take to get to America.
Since i'm off today i can't decide whether to go kayaking or go to the mountains, i think the weather will decide for me - if it rains i may as well get wet anyway!!
So, my plan is to take the kids to school, eat a leisurely breakfast and then go and do something fun!!

I've just had an email from my GGS swap buddy! the date for these to be sent is the 30th, so i'd better get on with finishing it. I will take some photos and post them after Ashton has received it - i'd hate to spoil the suprise!

The kitchen table can't be seen under all the stash! There is stuff everywhere, and all so i can make my album for GGS! I'm actually flying through it, knowing when to stop will be the problem, i'll post photos when its done.

I've just taken Ebony to college. I thought it would be worse but its been a gradual move, the only thing left to move in was her! She has a great adventure ahead of her, just as i was leaving she was wondering what she would cook for dinner, these are the things she must learn!
Truthfully though, i am very sad, and have cried lots. I know this day has been coming for the last 18 years, but i wasn't quite ready for it.
Anyway I wish her the very best and send her all my love xxxx

Monday 7th September

I'm off to my Tai Chi class this evening, i haven't done it for years but i'm looking forward to it.
I'm bringing my parents too, they want to do some excersise so this will be nice and gentle for them.
I spent the day driving around doing lots of jobs, i got everything done but every day i'm off work i think "I won't go anywhere today, just stay at home and catch up with things" - that never happens!
Well i'd better get ready, i'll let you know how it went..
