Just too busy!

Hi all, sorry I've been MIA again, I just can't seem to find the time to go on the computer and write blogposts! I have finally reached the point where I can craft for myself (including gifts) again, all commissions, for nursery and my own, have been completed and delivered! Feels good, I can tell you :) Both school and nursery Christmas fairs have been and gone, and both went really well, raising lots of funds.

I'm still knee-deep in Christmas preparations, though, trying to buy presents, to make presents (most years I make a wee calendar with a photo of the girls for granparents, auntie and uncle), trying to find time to sit down and write Christmas cards and eventually start food shopping as well. Oh to be organised and actually have it all done by this time! Maybe next year...

I'm also trying to scrap a December album, with a page every day. Thought it sounded like a good idea... Well, I really enjoy doing it when I get round to it, and I'm pleased with the pages I've done so far, but unfortunately, I'm a week behind... Hope to be catching up this week :) Once it's done, I'll show my favourite pages.

To prove that I have actually been crafting lately, here are a couple of cards, one made for my friend's birthday, and the other made for youngest daughter's friend.

This card uses a Little Claire stamp, watercoloured with pencils, cardstock from Paper Mill and spotty paper from American crafts. Sentiment is Studio G.

This one uses Dovecraft paper, Paper Mill cardstock, SU! scallop punch and computer-printed sentiment. Hope you like, thanks for stopping by! Off to bed now, hope to be back sooner the next time :)


  1. Morning Anne, gosh you are a busy lady. Hope your plans are working out. We do put ourselves under pressure at this time of time - it's a bit like that here!

    Love your cards, think the little claire stamp great - not seen this before.

    Take care, ikki x

  2. Hi Anne...just thought I'd stop by to say, "Hello." I'm so glad to hear that I'm not the only one rushing around trying to get things done and prepared before the holidays! There just isn't enough time in the day...

    Can't wait to be able to sit down and start crafting and blogging again!
