The weeks fly by!!!

Can't believe the last time I logged in was about 2 weeks ago! I have finished my college assignment, finally and thankfully, just go the presentation to do next week for it.

Have done a few layouts these past few weeks but not that many considering the speed I was turning them out before xmas! Steve treated me to some yummy papers last month and I have used them for two layouts, one of me and Charley and one of steve and Charley, both taken at her naming ceremony. The ones with steve and Charley in are K&Co papers from the wedding collection, which are sooooo pretty and work really well with the colour of his shirt. Im really pleased with both of the pages.

Im about to start work on some bowling pages from Charlottes birthday, I took loads including one of her feet wearing the bowling shoes which look sooooooooo cute, will post it when i get a chance.

Ive ordered a Scrapping Angels monthly kit this week and am hoping it arrives very soon, I figured that this was a good way to take me out of my comfort zone and make me try new products that I would never normally buy, will post pics when it comes, its only a small kit, here is the link but looks like it could be fun to use.
Right, work calls will try and blog again tomorrow.

Saturdays delights!!!!

We lazed about this morning doing nothing which was great, popped off to Fizzy Kids for some fun in the ball pool and had lunch. Charlotte is giving up her lunchtime sleeps which is hard on all of use, especially me as Im used to my break during the day where I catch up on chores and sleep, but she was down nice and early at 6.50pm, just have to see what time she wakes tomorrow.

Crafting hasnt happened today, although I have got a new book, 'The Amazing 650 scrapbook page ideas, tips and techniques, of which there are some lovely ideas, I just can't wait to get started on. Crafting is taking a backseat at the minute as I am really bogged down with a college assignment which I am finding very boring!!!!!!!!!!!! Ah well, only another 7 months and I should have my degree!

Right off to do some more studying.

Been and Gone

Well Christmas has been and gone since my last posting, all that time effort and money has been spent and now we are back in the real world and back at work.

Ive done some scrapping over Christmas but not huge amounts - will post some picks later! Charlotte had a lovely day and New Year was nice too, we went to Woking Theatre to see 'Peter Pan' as our special treat then went down to the Bowls Club with my parents to see in the New Year, Charlotte stayed up to see the new year in and after seeing in the new year, happy birthday was also sung to my mum!!!! A new year babe was she!

My aim this year is to scrap the year, not every day but to pick out activities that happen in the year each month and create a scrapbook of pages from them. January will be a new year page as most of the family were about and also Charlotte's birthday which is now up and coming!!!! More money!!!

Then I will take it day by day and see what happens.

We spent lots of Christmas with family seeing Steves side early in December. We spent Christmas eve with my brother and his wife, becoming the blue bin fairies to our next door neighbours on Christmas eve (long story, but very funny!) Christmas day was our day as a fimly together, we popped down to my mums for a short time, but spent the main bulk of the day at home together. Boxing day was at my mums andthe day after boxing day we went off to Steve's sister Sue, it was a great day! The rest of the week we just chilled out at home.

Now Im panicking as I have an assignment to complete over the next week and not a clue about what I am going to do! Mum and Dad are taking Charlotte to the Panto in Camberley - Cinderella I think!- today so I have a few hours to get going on it and work out what I am going to do. Has to be completed by Friday next week then I hjave to put together a seminar presentation on it!!! I cant wait for this course to be over!!! No more studying for me then, well not for a while anyhow!!! unless its crafting courses.
