I had to take a blog break, but here’s what I made during my absence!

It’s been a long time since I last posted anything on the blog!  Life took over and a well earned family break was required.  A few weeks later we very sadly suffered an unexpected family bereavement and thus, my return to blogging was hugely delayed. Fast forward a month and we took another short break to recharge our batteries.  I now feel that a return to blogging is in order.

During this time I have decided not to continue being a demonstrator with Stampin’ Up!  My collection of papercraft paraphernalia includes items from other manufacturers, which I have obviously been neglecting over the past several months.  I will of course continue to blog all things papercraft, but with the occasional sewing project and maybe a few travel related posts too – if you are interested in our motorhome travels, my Husband’s blog is

Have I made anything recently?  Yes, our youngest son’s Birthday card is shown above, and currently under construction are my eldest son’s Birthday cards, which I will show you after the event next week.  I have also made some washable face masks, which I continue to make as and when I have the time. 

Have I bought any crafty items lately? Of course! Two WRMK Mini 8 punches which I thought would be a great addition to my collection.

Also, a Brother P-touch labelling machine which is brilliant for organising my stuff….. and my husbands’ stuff….. and my son’s stuff!

I have also purchased some Christmas papercrafting goodies from various places including The Works, The Range, Hobbycraft and Stampin’ Up!  You will see these items incorporated into future projects which I have yet to make – I usually start making my Christmas cards in August (I find thoughts of a lovely cold winter really help whilst melting in a heatwave!) but this year I am obviously way behind on this.  I do have lots of ideas though and can’t wait to get started.

I hope you will continue to visit my blog as I really do remain interested in inspiring creativity.

Thank you for your visit today – I hope you will come back soon!
