While I am recovering from my recent accident I am falling in love with all things crafty all over again.  Here are a couple of pencil drawings of my kitty and doggy, Mitsy and Bailey.  Didn't take too long to get the knack of it again and I'm thrilled with the results.  I look forward to framing these in the near future.

Recovering is slow but I'm getting there.  Bruising is fading but still a bit swollen and very painful.  Just waiting for physiotherapy to give it the once over and make sure its all healing as it should.

Have a great weekend

Afternoon all, still got getting the hang of this blogging nonsense yet lol.  I do have a very good excuse this time though.  A couple of weeks ago I had a nasty accident at work which left me with badly torn ligaments in my ankle and unable to walk.  So I've pretty much been on bed rest since then.

I have however discovered crafting, I know I live for crafting but I mean good ole fashioned crafting.  After a rummage in my craft cupboard I found wool, needles and patterns and I've knitted my first jacket.  Its been years since I did any now I cant stop.  I've started on a top also !!!!

I've also dabbled with parchment craft using Clarity Stamps Groovi System, love it so will do much more of that in the coming weeks.

Stay tuned for more of my grumbling and craft making.

Its been nearly a year since I blogged so I'd better explain myself.  I'm not very good at this blogging stuff, I find myself pretty boring so worry that others will too however I will have a go.

In the last year I became quite ill and I will probably need surgery later this year to sort things out for good (womens' troubles!!!).  I need to lose some weight before surgery so I've now lost over 5 stone, I'm feeling so much better for it and wait for it .......................... I enjoy exercise and healthy food!!!!!

Anyhoo I'm still here and still designing.  My lastest addition to my cd catalogue is a lovely cd called The Luxury of Time, it features that cute little pocket watch from Elegant Timepiece CD rom which was designed over 12 years ago!!!!  There are toppers and papers for all occasions with stunning papers to match.

I made this card using 2 different backing papers, one to cover the card and the other to add torn elements.  The topper was matted onto black card then gold card and finished off with a paper flower and some punched butterflies.

Happy Crafting
