Been doing a bit of crafting
















Hi there! Thank you for stopping by and having a peek of my blog and my crafty bits. I have joined a few scrapping threads over on UKScrappers and have been getting a bit of my mojo back.





I know I have not been crafting half as much as I would like to but I find it really hard somedays this time of year to even smile...I won't go into why..but maybe someday I will. Another reason is because my job keeps me very busy these days and I am looking to change job locations but not job positions. Anyway....here is what I have been up to the past couple weeks...hope you enjoy looking as I have enjoyed creating them. A short explanation of my LO's. 1. My Hands....uks cyber crop pre crop challange...do a layout of an identifying characteristic of yours...when I asked my dh..he said..your small caring hands...so hence the layout of my hand next to his, 2.Aged elegance another pre crop challange as most people know I love cemetaries and love taking photo's there...so here is a photo I took at the swansea cemetary of an ornament enclosure of a cemetary family plot that has rusted and aged over the years..I find this..beautiful..but sad. 3. I think is my Niagara LO, mine and dh's first trip together as a couple..driving from Maine to Michigan..we were 30 miles from Niagara and just could not pass it up....we arrived at 7am and the gate man let us in for free and we had the place to ourselves except one man and a couple squirrels and my youngest son! Absolutely stunning is all I can describe it as! 4. Special Bond is of my brother and I, we had such a great friendship, he was 7 years older then I but he was my best friend from the day my mom brought me home from the hospital, we lost him when I was 13, it still hurts all these years later...this lo means so so much to me. 5. is of me...wow huh? I was born in the year of the Rooster in the chinese horoscope so hence the rooster on the lo, it was for this past weeks uks weekly team challange.
I hope you have enjoyed what you have seen. :)
