Hello All,

I am back from my hols, I managed to get down there, but had to take medication to stop me from being sick... once I got there I spent the whole time lying on the sofa! and I wasn't well enough to sit and colour, however I did complete my cross stitch, this used to be my main hobby before I discovered papercrafting, I dont do it as much now but I still always have one on the go! ...... I want to do one for baby, but after trawling the Internet I love anything really girly, or something like Cars, so I have decided to wait until I know what it is before starting one, knowing me it will be about 10 before I have it completed!!!!! ...... this one is meant to have beading on it to, but I have lost the packet of beads so I will have to wait until a later date! She is "Marilyn Robertson - Lola"

I actually had a good day yesterday, so we started moving my craft stuff into the loft, by that I mean I managed to get in the loft without being sick, and I sat on a chair wrapped in a blanket whilst my poor hubby came up and down the loft with endless boxes and then I pointed out where I wanted them put ..... Its actually looking really good, I love the quirky feel to it, I think its quite "Artsy!" I have just ordered a Ottlite, so I have decent lighting for colouring, as that will be the main problem working in the loft.

I am still playing catch up with you all (the story of my life!!) but I should get round to see you soon.

Thanks for looking

On Holiday

Hello All,

Just a quick post from me. I am on holiday at the mo, we have actually broken the journey and we are currently at my in laws in perthshire. We head down to Kirby Longsdale tomorrow. I am not sure if the cottage we have hired has wi fi, so I may have to catch up with you all when I get back.

I am not sure if I will get out and about when I get there, as I still have severe motion sickness. The doc has given me tablets to cope with the journey, although I am trying to do it without them.

I have not taken all my crafting stuff, I always find that I take loads of stuff, and then make 2 cards when I am on hols, and at the mo I am struggling to make cards anyway. so this time I have taken some stamped images, my copics and prismas, and I will do some colouring, so I will be all ready to go when I get back!!

big hugs to all

Kraft and Krafting Kimmie

Hi All,

As you can see I am still playing with my Prismas & Kraft .... I did these ones last night, I have used some " Krafting Kimmie" images both the cards again have been edged using my little kanban stamp, and the first card the castle in the background is "Paper Artsy"

I would like to enter these into:

Simon Says
- Anything Goes
CES - Totally gorjuss, pretty girls

I was so excited yesterday as I went the whole day without being sick, and there is a baby fayre on in Inverness today, I wanted to look, especially at the prams, there is a shocking lack of choice here in Inverness, and although we plan to get one second hand or look on line for the best deal, I still wanted to have a look at some and get a feel for if I liked them or not. However as yet I have not managed out my bed without being sick, so it is looking unlikely!! I'm gutted and feeling very sorry for myself. My blending solution has just arrived so hopefully next time I am able to get out of bed I can have a play with that, and my craft stamper magazine has just arrived so that will keep me amused for a while.

Anyway once again thanks for looking, and putting up with my waffle
