Long time no blog!

It’s almost a year since I last blogged. Oops!

I haven’t stopped crafting, but sadly life (work, house renovations, work, holidays etc) has meant that I haven’t had time to blog.
I’ve signed up for my third term of silver jewellery classes, making jewellery from scratch, so I still am trying and learning new things.

Happy Valentine’s!

Happy Valentine’s!

Mr M and I aren’t really celebrating today. We usually cook a posh meal at home on Valentine’s itself or go out for a nice meal either that night, or a night either side. This year I am at school, behind the scenes for a production, supporting my colleagues and students.

Mr M and I are exchanging cards today, and that is all. I couldn’t bear to give him a bought card, despite having no time to make one. Besides, one of my crafty goals for 2013 is to only send handmade cards. Here is his card:

I did toy with a greeting, but decided to stick with fairly simple.

This has got to be the easiest valentine’s card ever! All I did was cut out a variety of different sized hearts out of paper and stacked them in alternating colours. You don’t need any crafting equipment, all you need is a pair of scissors and a glue stick.

As for our nice Valentine’s meal? It will be in Malta: we fly out on Saturday 🙂

Yes, I’ve entered again!
There are some amazing entries this month. Have a look for yourself…

Hello all you lovely folk!

I’m sure you are all well into the swing of Christmas, preparing to feast and hopefully have some wonderful plans to spend tomorrow with your loved ones. I myself am eye-ball deep in a chaotic house, busy packing for our flight this evening to the UK! Yipeee!
