Hello to you all in the bloggy land

I have so missed visiting you all
and hearing from you... it has been so so quiet
Well the BIG move went OK...few things went wrong..but nothing too major
The company that moved us from Portugal..didn't take care of our things
So when unpacking this end.. a LOT of it is marked, broken and just dented
The poor fridge freezer has a lovely scratch along the front...!!
And there is nothing we can do...cos silly us thought that it would all be OK
so didn't get the insurance... everything that went out was fine... 
not one mark...oh well the Portuguese said goodbye to us nicely eh !!
anyway onto something of more interest...
A card... yes I have made a card...just a quick one though 
I made this just before we left Paul's mums

 I used a set of dies to get the shape 
don't ask me which as I borrowed them from another craftaholic
they are lovely
The flowers are from my stash, and butterfly was added by the MIL...
it finishes it off nicely..
This was made as a thankyou card for Hannah's Teacher
and according to hannah she loved it
Right I have to fly...I have a lot of catching up to do..
and Tomorrow sees the first day I am able to spend an hour crafting.
Thanks for stopping by

Evening ALL

Well this will be the last post from me for about a week
as tonight is the last night we spend at Paul's mum's
We have everything packed and in the conservatory
ready for the moving to start at 630am
We have to get to the new house for 1030am...
with a 2hour drive in front of us...
So van packing starts early.
Then it will be unpacking the we need straight away things
then slow unpacking for the next week or so..
Our things have been in storage for some time now so.
it will all need a good clean...everything will need a run through the washer
And I am slightly worried as it hasn't stopped raining the past few days
Not really curtain drying weather.. or clothes for that matter
We just hope that the Gas and electric are connected as we have asked
or it will be a very dark first night.
Maybe should have bought candles just in
I have a couple of open first boxes with cleaners and tea,coffee etc in them..
Pickfords will arrive at 11am with all the things from Portugal !!
Thats when the fun starts..wardrobe assembly etc..
Right thats it from me for a wee while
I have pack up to make.(just in case we can't or don't get time for anything else)
and then early to bed ready for a busy day
Tasmin is wondering whats going on bless her
I hope she isnt thinking she has to go on a huge boat again
she keeps looking at the boxes then sitting by her bed!!
Am sure she will love the ride in the van tomorrow!
Right take care all of you hope you had a wonderful easter
I will be back to normal posting as soon as we have internet
and I have my PC up and running
Oh and the craft things unpacked..

Happy Happy Good Friday

Well I have to say that I AM BORED but smiling
yes bored stupid... I have not done any crafting for a couple of weeks
as I have been so so busy... now I am bored....
Because I have packed the craft things up thinking it best to be organised
And now I have time to sit and play.... 
I may have to sneak into Paul'l mums room and make something using her things.
Although am sure she will not mind..but don't think I will chance
So I am going to go for a long long walk with Tasmin
then spend a couple of hours getting ready for drinks at the local tonight
with Paul's friends... goodbye drinks time again...
so I may have something to show you tomorrow if I sneak in that room
She is now watching Passion of the Christ... being a christian she likes the film !!
Paul is watching some rubbish about Ramasis of egypt !!
right walk time for me and Tasmin
Thanks for stopping by  xx

Easter will soon be upon us

And I have not one eater card made...
Your thinking why.... well I can not recall ever sending one
So why start now...only means more
I am busy packing..yet again... My crafty things are all packed away
I am going to try to stay away from craft shops until I move..
I just hope I have one near me...
I move to Brighouse near to if anyone knows a good one
Let me know and I am sure I can squeeze a visit in once settled
I can show you a card I made to go in with my blog candy
now that Toni has recieved the package.
 Made by ME... I did borrow a pattern from Paul's mum for the sewing 
The decoupage was from a set out of a magazine...
The punched edge is from a new punch that jumped into my basket
while at a local craft shop...naughty punch..
And it made three more join
it obviously didnt want to be alone..!!!
SHHHH Paul hasn't seen them as yet...

I am hoping to be on here before Easter as I do have cards to show
But then I also have hot cross buns to make
yes apparently a tradition in Paul's mum's house.
She bakes for the family!!!
two hot cross buns each..for 16... 32 hot cross buns !!
Wonder if she will notice if I buy Tesco ones
and say I made them... probably will do
So make I will do
Right I am going to watch War horse
