A little Hello

Yes, don't faint, I posted on my blog, its not an illusion lol.

Have had THE busiest two weeks ever. Lots happening in real life away from blogland with property, producing work for publication, family heath and kids.

First off is the artwork I created this morning to say Hi and as it happens it ties in with Wednesday Stamper 'Leaves' this week and Saturday Stampers 'Tag it'. I used my new stamps and Paper Whimsy image to create this (just because I'm not posting much doesnt seem to stop me spending money lol).

please click image to enlarge



As I said its been a busy time- we've been looking for a property locally and nothing has been suitable until two weeks ago when I saw the most gorgeous place just advertised with amazing views, land and room to extend/adapt for my eldest boys wheelchair. Its a very exciting time and I shall post a few pics once contracts are in place etc.(I dont want to tempt fate)

Also my youngest boy got the 'Child of the Week' award at the school he just started. Proud :0) He was awarded the badge and certificate for " being kind, polite and helpful- a pleasure to have in the class" awwwwwww...here he is with his badge :0)



I've been creating lots of things over the past month but am unable to reveal any right now. So even though I may appear to be doing nothing here I've been doing the 'swan thing' - swimming like mad under water but on the surface being quiet and calm.

Thanks for still stopping by and visiting. :0) xx
