Hi, Im Joanne and I am a full time teacher and working single mum.
My relaxation in life has taken the form of a scrapbooking addiction with crafting stuff everywhere in the house.
Ive been scrapping about 11 years now and love it, too!
The sun is shining outside but is still freezing!!! Fortunatly we didnt get much snow over the weeknd and what we did get was washed away by the rain! Still Charley and I managed to get on and make some xmassy cards and some bookmarks for the family, so tonights job is to varnish them and finish off the few that we didnt manage last night.
So thats tonight sorted, Im off cropping again on thursday and then next week Im going ot Rachels Xmas class which should be good too. School is busy with rehersals, rehersals and more rehersals for the xmas play which means that we are busy with displays and prop making, today was angels harps! I didnt draw them though I just painted them!
Well you can tell that november has arrived cant you, you only need one look outside the window to see the drab weather! Still when its cold and wet outside thats perfect scrapping weather cos it means that i can stay inside and keep warm and cosy with my scissors, glue dots and blooms!
Ive managed to get all my bits and bobs for the advent swap ready so now its just a case of finding a box big enough to send them in and wrapping them up! I do hope that my swappee likes what I have bought!
Ive booked to do Rachels xmas class now I was in too minds as to whether to or not, but so enjoyed the class last week that Im going to go for it, hopefully it will give me some more gifts fr friends and family!
Well I was yesterday and so was my nan and her twin sister, all three of us share the same day, which is quite nice! I got some fabby silicone baking trays especially some muffin trays as Ive become a bit of a muffin freak! Also got some money, gift vouchers, a new iron !?!?!?! clothes, handbag and Dawn French's new book - Dear Fatty! Dont ya just love dawn French!
I spent the day doing very little, finishing a circle journal, making recipe cards for a tin Ive made my mum, I guess its about time I uploaded some pics. Ive so many projects on the go at the moment and I really do need to get on with making some xmas cards as I just dont have enough left from last year!
