DT's and holidays....

I've been feeling much much better this week - much cheerier (is that a word!).

I'm off on my hols on Friday to Scotland for 10 whole days! i can't wait. Even the predicted forecast of snow is not going to deterr me (although being in a caravan in 10ft of snow is slightly worrying!)

This week, Mitch, who is a foster dog that my friend Alexa has been looking after finally found a home. For anyone that saw my blog at christmas time, Mitch is the one who was laid on a table and appeared to be dead, or so he wished anyway. He was terribly abused and had cigarette burns etc - it was enough to really break you heart in two :(

He's gone to a wonderful home and is happy and contented. How much better could life be than that........

I did cry buckets though when Alexa rang me. Although he wasn't my foster dog, i just adored him, he is SO special.

Can't really think of anything else happening at the minute BUT....did i tell you i was going on holiday :)

whoo hoo

Finally, my DT layouts for www.sarahscardsltd.com for February. Obviously my 2 layouts are of the very very gorgeous Patchey Miller :) and the pillow pack was made for Kirsty Wiseman's little girl Ellie. You can read all about her story here http://limegreenbogiegirl.blogspot.com/

Bad bad blogger!

okay, so i have been whinged at by Em today to do an update.

I HATE blogging you know. Essentially, im just too darn lazy to keep it updated and nothing that ever happens to me seems to be that interesting.

Right then, i've just realised that it's before my birthday that i last blogged (god thats really bad!) so i'll start with that. I had some beautiful cards and pressies, Lise sent me the most gorgeous wishing star which is proudly hung in my kitchen so i can have a wish while i'm washing up. Steph sent me a Patchey time Clock and a delicious hang up with my name on. And i had cards from loads of people including Sue, Em, Mel, Kathy and from my friends over at uks.
Right, so whats next?

Been feeling quite low this last month. I think i have a case of the winter blues and it's been very difficult to try and pick myself up again. Hopefully spring is on the way so that will chase the blues away i reckon.

Last weekend my cousin and Matt went for a ride on their bikes and my cousin ended up having a horrific motorbike accident. He lost control of his motorbike and slid down a hill on his face into a 4x4. Poor Matt has been beside himself, it's been awful to watch.

Luckily he's going to be okay (thank god for helmets and leathers!)

Finally my altered item that i created as part of my commission for SI came out this week. It seems like AGES ago that i did it. It was done as Mel's xmas pressie but obviously it's late! sorry mel hehe

Here's another! I produced this pillow pack for the Ellie fundraiser over at Bubbly Funk Form. The auction raised nearly £300 which is fantastic - well done everyone.

Next up is my 2 DT Layouts from Februarys kit from http://www.sarahscardsltd.com/ - i think this was my favourite kit. Although, saying that, this months kit is bloody gorgeous as well!

Okay, think thats it for now! - Em, does that stop your whinging now LOL
