Hand Bound Journals with Flower Belly Band

Hand Bound Journals with Flower Belly Band Hey folks, whatabout ye all?  I hear parts of England and Wales are getting some beautiful sunshine.  Any chance of you shoving some of it my Northern Ireland way then???  I swear it has rained constantly over my wee bit of Northern Ireland since June!!  Nimbus came in this morning looking 2 stone lighter and like a drowned rat!!  Now my cat is a long haired fuzz ball and isn't afraid of water or the rain really as it doesn't get in contact with her actual skin because she's so furry and her coat is extremely thick.......but this morning....Well, our poor wee baby was soaked through and her fur was drenched......BUT....the daft cow was sitting IN THE RAIN!!!!  She has a wee house that she can go in to when its pouring but oh no.....Nimbus wants to sit in the rain!  Lol.  Daft cat.  Then she came in and proceeded to try and dry herself off on Scrubby's leg!  He had to actually towel dry her she was so soaking.....she was dripp

Blogaversary Winner

Blogaversary Winner Hey everyone.  Im going to keep this short and sweet as I know you just want to know who the winners are! I cut out all the Scrubby to pull out the names.  Sadly the first 2 names that were pulled out did not comply with the rules when I checked!  I couldn't believe it was the first 2 that were pulled out!  And the goodies were both going to end up heading out of the UK but sadly they didn't stick to the rules.  Im sorry put if you failed to follow the rules, I couldn't add you.  So Scrubby had to redraw the names again. I have decided to give a third prize away.  Its just a teeny tiny consolation prize Third Prize......just a wee small one but I hope the winner likes it A collection of my stickpins A collection of some of my flowers THE WINNER OF THE CRAFTER CARD MAKER PRIZE IS..... ...................................... ...................................... Karen from Stamping in pINK Well done Karen, ple

More Stickpins and fabric flowers

More Stickpins and fabric flowers Yummy stickpins Ive been adding to my "Grannies Sewing Room" Collection flowers.  Theyre so cute!  I know, I know Ive been a complete nightmare of late.  Neglecting my blog, your blogs, my craft room and thats to name but a few.  And guess what Im blaming it on........yep you guessed it.......the good 'ole Northern Ireland weather!!  I cannot take it any more!  Its dark, dull, grey, damp, windy and bloomin' cold! I have at this moment in time the heating on at full blast and a duvet up round me.  I can't find the motivation to go and craft when its so incredibly grey!  According to BBC newsline Northern Ireland got less than 120 hours of sunshine last month........THATS ONLY 5 DAYS!  And I tell you what.....that was them rounding up or over estimating or something because my neck of the woods didn't see no 120 hours of sunshine let me tell ye. Anyway, enough of my yapping.  Theres another sneaky reason I haven't
