Very Special Christmas Crochet!

Hello all and I hope that you had a good Christmas and now have a moment of calm before the New Year!  We had some lovely family time, probably far too much to eat, and survived the awful weather that has been plaguing the north west of the UK! My daughter and her boyfriend have now headed back to Sussex after being with us for a few days and the house seems rather quiet once more.  Mind you, our son is still here of course and I keep hearing him playing his guitar upstairs so it's not really that quiet!  Much as I miss my daughter when she leaves, the one positive of their departure is that I can have my 'craft room' back (i.e. the spare little bedroom!), and I'm looking forward to a few hours sometime in the next few days to do some therapeutic colouring!

I just wanted to share a rather special 'commission' for some Christmas crocheting I was given!  My lovely step-daughter (who made us very proud grandparents last month!) had spotted a very cute project on Pinterest and asked if I could make it as she thought it would be ideal for some Christmas photos featuring the gorgeous Isabella!  How could I refuse?!  So I tracked down the pattern on Etsy and got busy with hook and yarn.

The stocking and hat were made with lovely soft chunky yarn from Stylecraft - and I thought the stocking could always be used later for our cutie granddaughter to put out for Father Christmas. 

But these are a couple of pics of the supermodel herself with the stocking - a bit unsure in the first one and definitely not too impressed in the second photo! It just made me laugh out loud when Lucy sent me the pics!  And I hope they make you smile too! 

Hope you like the project and pics! 

And a quick selfie of son Jack, daughter Lauren and me on Christmas Day! I'm not too sure about my paper hat and apron on.....Can you guess who was cooking Christmas Dinner?

I'll try and get back on to blogger shortly, but we're out again tomorrow and it's my birthday on New Year's Eve (no, I've given up counting!) - I'm hoping I get some quiet me-time to catch up with crafts and blogs. 

Back soon,

Christmas Wishes

Merry Christmas! I can't believe that it's already Christmas Day as the first part of December vanished in a flash. 

But it's here, and before I start being 'busy busy' in the kitchen, I just wanted to put on a quick blog post to send you all good Christmas wishes. I hope that whatever you are doing, you have a good day and that it is a peaceful, happy day for you.  

We've got family here for dinner later, guests in and out over the next couple of days and then off to see our new baby granddaughter Isabella, who is now 6 weeks old! And I'm so looking forward to having some more Nanna Kim cuddles! 

Merry Christmas!
Back soon,

Christmas is getting nearer...!

Hello all and I hope that you are enjoying a relaxing Sunday afternoon (or at least having some relaxation time at some point!). After a busy week here and a list of things still to do, I am just taking a brief 5 minutes to catch up with my blog (and myself!). Thankfully it was our end of term on Thursday and so I'm hoping that, in between all the usual seasonal cooking, visiting, etc., that I can enjoy some quiet crafting time and also to browse around blogland again. Our Christmas decorations are now all up - and despite Grumpy Poppy the Cat doing minor readjustments to the tree decorations whenever she goes past - they're all pretty intact. My lovely daughter and her boyfriend stayed with us last night (a slight alteration to the schedule!), and have now gone to visit Tom's family for a few days and then will return to us on Christmas Day for their dinner and to stay with us for a few days which I am really looking forward to!

But I thought I'd better share another Christmas card with you before the season passes!

This trio of penguin stamps from LOTV are so cute! 
I've coloured the images with copics and promarkers, with some added glamour dust. The papers and sentiment tag stamsp are from LOTV, and some added die cut snowflakes.
I usually end up making Christmas cards with traditional reds and greens, but I quite like the purples on this one for a change! 
Hope you do too! 

And I hope that you enjoy some crafting time over the coming week, whatever plans you may have. 
Back soon,

Chaos... and more chaos.....!

Hello all! No, I haven't emigrated without telling you, or moved out to go and live in a cave or stayed in bed under the duvet with a pillow over my head for the last 2 weeks - although to be fair, any or all of those options was a real possibility at times!  I've been busy trying to make 'Christmas' happen at our house, including putting the tree up, writing & posting cards, buying (and starting to wrap) pressies and ordering food.  To add to the general mayhem, we've been preparing for some work at home so half my hall floor had disappeared.  And then, to add a good layer of extra pressure, we had awful storms last weekend.

You may have seen news items about flooding, which was awful for those in Cumbria (not far from ours) but I live in Lancaster and we were also flooded - but, more critically for us, when the River Lune burst it banks it also flooded the sub-station so Lancaster and Morecambe were plunged into darkness!  A power cut that lasted, for us, over 42 hours, which was a bit of a challenge I have to say!  Now I know I like candles, but really.....  My son and his friends coped very well I have to say, being deprived of all electronics - no laptops, x-boxes or phones, because of the loss of power, there was no mobile signal either! So they were off school for 2 days (as no power there either!) and were out playing football, hunting round to see if any shops were open to get some milk and bread for us, etc. But at least we had a dry home and weren't flooded like so many, and I'm somewhat relieved that my freezer wasn't full of Christmas food! And it was so wonderful when the power finally came back on! It was proving a bit of trial at times to make tea and wash up by candlelight - and boiling water on the hob to have a wash. Once the shower was working again it was bliss lol!

Anyway, less of my waffling. I just wanted to share another couple of Christmas cards with you - I can't believe it's only 10 days away! The last few weeks have just vanished so quickly.  I decided to make a few cards with some of my stash of lovely papers and had a therapeutic session die cutting poinsettias with a Spellbinders die!

The papers and sentiment stamps for both of these cards are from LOTV, with hessian and gingham ribbons from stash.  I think they make quite simple but effective cards. 

And a couple of pics of the flooding in our city centre.  The first one is of the bus station (with Lancaster Castle above at the back) and the second is by the old Waring & Gillows furniture buildings.  It was definitely a bit wet in town! 

I hope that your December is going a little more smoothly than ours - although I'm hoping now that we've got all the chaos over with and that there are no more 'surprises' before Christmas Day! 
Back soon (I hope lol!)

Getting busy for Christmas!

On Tuesday it's 1st December and my preparations for Christmas amount to approximately '0'.
A big fat 'Nil'.
Apart from a selection of (too few) handmade cards and a few other handmade bits, I feel particularly un-ready for the arrival of the chubby man in the red suit.
Number of presents bought = 0.
Cards written =0.
Food bought or prepared =0.
I feel an official Christmas failure. Sigh.

I've been using a variety of excuses, ranging from being busy at work, getting things ready for a craft fair, new medication that the doctor has prescribed for me for my migraines that is seriously knocking me out (a genuine whinge there!), and probably a general lethargy/weariness associated with being a female of a certain age!  But I've decided I've got to put the excuses to one side, pull my big girl pants up and get on with 'Operation Christmas'.  I need to get back to my normal control-freaky behaviour of making lists, booking shopping slots, and getting everybody organised (even though the family usually ignore me anyway...!).

So, I've had a sort of spurt of energy this weekend(!) and made another half a dozen cards. I'm trying to get a surprise crochet project finished for someone that will be a special pressie (I can't really share pics of that yet - it'll have to be a post-Christmas post if you understand me!) - and even bought some food goodies for the freezer for when we have a house full over the festive period!

One of my cards is using the gorgeous trio stamps from LOTV

The images are coloured with copics and promarkers and the backing paper is from LOTV with some ribbon from stash. The sentiment is die cut using an All Occasions die. 

And thank you for all your good wishes about the craft fair - it was on Friday evening and was very busy despite the weather! And I was quite pleased to sell a few things - and had lots of nice chats with people too! 

I'll let you know how I get on with Christmas planning - wish me luck!  I'm always convinced every one else is more organised than me!

Keeping busy.... (very busy...!)

Hello all - and apologies for a bit of an absence! I don't know where the time flies to sometimes and I must also apologise for being a bit of a rubbish blogger! I will really try to make proper time to sit and have a browse at everyone's blogs and catch up with all your crafty makes.

It seems to have been a busy time at home and work - and with crafty things too.  I'm busy preparing for a Christmas craft fair on Friday this week - so all sorts of papercrafts and crochet bits are being gathered together. I've made quite a few of the crochet mini Christmas stockings that proved pretty popular at fairs last year (and buying chocolates and goodies to put in them!)

And I've also made a few more of the crochet garlands with the cute crochet 'stars' - these are the ones from last year that sold so I'll take some pics of the new ones for this year! 

And I've also kept busy making some orders for Knitted Knockers! It's so nice to use my yarn addiction to help other women! Catch up with their Facebook page HERE to find out more! 

I've also been trying to make a few Christmas cards for my own 'stash' - but I've a feeling that I'll be a bit behind with my own cards (& have to buy some!).  I did quite like this simple design using stamps I've had for ages from Chocolate Baroque and I love the sentiment on this one.  

I've used distress inks and added some gilding wax to give a slight sheen but sadly this doesn't show up on my pics! 

And there seems to be endless things to do at home! We've now sorted a little car as our youngest is learning to drive - can't believe my 'baby' is driving, another thing for me to worry about! And our daughter Lauren had an interview this week and has been offered her first teaching job at a lovely primary school in Sussex!  I'm so thrilled for her (even though I wish it was a bit nearer lol!). And of course we have our new addition to the family and we went for lovely baby cuddles last weekend with our new granddaughter who is just adorable! (But it's only natural that all new babies are adorable I suppose!).  And our son Jack enjoyed having cuddles with his new niece Isabella

Sorry for the rather long and rambling post - and I'll try and catch up with all your lovely blogs during the week!

A new arrival!

Just a quick post to let you know that we are overjoyed that we became grandparents for the first time yesterday! Our lovely Lucy and Jon had a beautiful baby girl, Isabella Autumn, on 10th November 2015, weighing in at a petite 6lb 2oz - and I know I'm biased, but she is just adorable!

We're so excited and looking forward to having baby cuddles with this little beauty.

Apologies for the gushing granny post - but it's always nice to share happy news with friends!

Stuck on the computer!

Hello all - I can't believe it's Friday again.  We've been back at school/work again this week and very busy (as always).  I hope that you enjoyed your Bonfire Night last night - despite the weather! - and have something nice planned for the weekend ahead.  My lovely old dog Tilly really didn't like fireworks and I used to have lots of toys and treats lined up to keep her mind off things. Grumpy Poppy the cat just lives up to her name though!  Last night one or two particularly loud "bangs" woke her up from her snooze on the sofa and she sat up and glared at us as if it was our fault! If looks could kill....

The majority of the cards I make tend to be either for family and friends' birthdays or by request/order and I was very pleased to receive an email recently from someone who said they'd seen my cards on my blog and wondered if I could make one - I was very flattered and very pleased to oblige!  She particularly liked the 'computer guy' image from Mo Manning - and I think it's a very good image for those teenage boys and men who love their computers (and I speak from experience here, living with a husband and son who love t'internet!).

I've coloured the image with copics and promarkers, and a mix of papers from stash. The sentiment stamp is from LOTV and the letter dies are from AllOccasions.
I used a brushed silver card for the base and decorated the inside to match

The lady who ordered it has received it now - and I'm hoping she likes it (and the recipient does!).

I'm hoping to get some crafting time in this weekend - still got quite a lot of Christmas cards to make and a craft fair in a few weeks so I'd better get a wiggle on! 

I hope you have a good weekend, whatever you have planned.

Christmas card production line....

Hello all - I hope that you've been having a good week? We've had quite a nice relaxing time on the half term break with our daughter here to stay for a few days. Sadly, she has now gone back south to Sussex and I always feel a bit down when she's gone again :(  but I have a husband and son (+ his entourage) still at home so I'm not exactly lonely! And I went out for a lovely lunch with one of my bestest friends yesterday to cheer myself up! And I've also managed to squeeze in a bit of crafting time - I'm busy with another Knitted Knocker order and a couple of cards made to order. I'm also doing a craft stall in a few weeks with another crafty friend so I've been busy making the mini crochet Christmas stockings that proved quite popular last year! (Not to mention the wedding invitations for my step-daughter's wedding!). There's never enough hours in a day really!

I've also tried to get going a bit more with the Christmas cards. I usually try to find some designs that are a bit more straightforward to put together as there are quite a few to make. I'm definitely allergic to making two cards the same, but as time is a bit limited there is also a need to make them fairly simple and easy!

I quite liked this design, using stamps I've had in my stash for ages from Chocolate Baroque


I've used plenty of distress inks and the tree and sentiment stamp are from Chocolate Baroque. The papers, ribbon, twine and snowflake charms are from stash and I've used Spellbinder and Die-namics dies.

They are quite simple, but quite effective - and I love the wording on that sentiment! 

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments - and glad you liked the pics of the family on my last post! I'll let you know when our new family addition arrives! 

I hope you enjoy your weekend - whatever you have planned!

Snuggly blanket time!

Hello all - it's definitely "Welcome to Autumn" time here! Clocks changed here in the UK over the weekend, and I've just had to close the curtains before 5pm! No likey! I love seeing the fabulous autumnal colours we've had on the trees, I can even cope with chilly mornings (thanks to central heating lol!) and love having my little candles lit.  But I really don't like it going so dark so early in the evening - well, afternoon really! And there's weeks and weeks of it ahead now.... Sigh.

On the bright side, it's half term so we're all on a lovely break from school - and, extra yippee! - our lovely daughter Lauren is here for a few days! She arrived late on Saturday night as we had a special day out yesterday - but more about that later.

And I've just finished an extra warm and snuggly blanket - just in time for chilly evenings!  I started this one a while ago (although doing other projects in between as I usually do!), using fabulous Stylecraft Special DK and a gorgeous corner-to-corner pattern that is on a fantastic blog 'Felted Button'. If you love colour and anything yarn-related, please do have a look at Susan's blog HERE.

So here's a heap of pics showing the growth of this blanket...

From the start, with a bag full of scrummy colours!  Thank you Wool Warehouse! 

As it got going, it was lovely to see the colourful stripes

I'm pleased with the colours - I think they work well together

And the finished blanket! Ta Dah! It measures nearly 1.5m square and is VERY warm and cosy - and I love the textured look and feel of the pattern. 

Hope you like it! 

And we had a lovely day yesterday as we all gathered for a surprise 'Baby Shower' for my gorgeous step-daughter Lucy!  The little Princess is due in a couple of weeks - and to say we're all excited is an understatement! This will be the first grandchild and I'm sure will be thoroughly spoilt with hugs and kisses!  And a couple of lovely pics of our 3 girls (youngest son didn't join us! I don't think all the pink and baby-themed things were designed for a 17-year old boy!) 

and with 2 of Lucy's friends (and Nikki's little baby Dougie!)

So sweet! 

Hope you managed to last through all the photos - and thanks for looking!

Birthday flowers

Hello all and I hope that you've had a good week? The usual sort of week here, busy at work and then busy at home too!  It seems to have been a very long term so far at school and I'll be doing a happy dance next Friday when we break up for our half term break!  And to make it an extra nice break, our lovely daughter Lauren is coming to spend a few days at home - I haven't seen her since we went to stay in August which seems a very long time ago!

Anyway, I was asked if I could make a card for someone for their mum, whose 70th birthday was approaching and I came up with this one

I just love this cute image from Mo Manning which I got a little while ago and hadn't used yet!  I spent quite a while colouring the gorgeous image with copics and graphits and a touch of pencil

The backing paper is from LOTV and I've used AllOccasions dies for the lettering and greeting. The flowers were made with a Britannia die. And I just think this little girl is so sweet!
I hope you like her too! 

And I had some lovely news from Knitted Knockers UK that my crocheting was at the standard they require and I'm honoured I've been able to join their orders board. So now I'm currently working on my first order for some 'knitted knockers' and hope that they can help bring some comfort as prosthesis for a woman who has had a mastectomy.  Please do follow the link HERE to the website and have a look - and do spread the word! 

I hope that you have a good weekend - whatever you have planned!

Teenage boys...

Can you believe that it's taken me about 4 days to get around to writing up a blog post? Every time I've sat with the laptop I seem to have got distracted onto something else, or not even had chance to put the laptop on! It's been 'one of those weeks', with a never-ending list of things to do either at work or home, and definitely not enough hours to get them all done! And then when I have finally collapsed into a heap on the sofa in the evening I've not really had the mental capacity to put a post together!  Some evenings, it's just enough to relax, with a hot mug of tea and some yarn & a crochet hook!  I thought this evening was going the same way when I'd just sat down and my son arrived home with about 5 of his friends - and much as I love to see them all, on a Friday evening it's just nice to have a bit of quiet down-time!

Anyway, I hope that your week has been a little less chaotic than mine - and you've had some crafty time too.  I've been very pleased to get a few orders in lately for cards to order, and it's always nice to think that people like my cards!  This one was made for an order, for someone's teenage son - and if I ever need an image for a teenager then I always look first at Mo Manning and her fabulous digi stamps!

I love this image - and it looks like so many teenage boys that I see (and trust me, I see a LOT of boys being the current owner of a teenage boy and working at a boys school lol!) - permanently plugged in to headphones and a mobile phone! 

I've coloured the image with my usual mix of copics, promarkers and graphit pens. The papers and sentiment stamp are from LOTV, and I've added some seam binding, bakers twine and steel grey brads.
I hope you like it! 
I'm looking forward to the weekend - a couple of cards to make for orders and then, hopefully, a day out on Sunday to visit my eldest stepdaughter and her partner in Shropshire!  And perhaps some time to relax!

Cute Christmas Penguins!

Hello all, I hope that your week has been going well.  Thank you for all your lovely comments and your get well wishes about the migraines. I've not been too bad the last few days - so keeping my fingers crossed!  And I was pleased you liked the details about Knitted Knockers! I've been busy crocheting and hoping that I can soon meet the standards required.  But it's nice to spread the word to the many women who can benefit from the 'knockers' supplied by the charity - they are only made with 100% cotton yarn and are so soft. I'll let you know how I get on!

But I've also been busy adding to the Christmas card stash (although I use that word loosely - I'm not sure that 10 or so cards counts as a 'stash' haha!).  This card was made with the new trios from LOTV

These are such cute penguin images - and lovely to colour. I've added some liquid pearl drops and glamour dust
The paper and sentiment stamp are also from LOTV with some ribbon and charm from stash.

Hope you like this little cutie! 

I'm so pleased it's Friday tomorrow - it's been another busy week (at work and home!). Youngest is now taking his driving lessons (which I try not to think about - even though he's loving them!), and work is the usual busy-busy! I'm just hoping for a relaxing - and migraine-free! - weekend! I hope you enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned.

New stamps..... and Knitted Knockers!

Hello all, I can't believe that another week has flown past and that it's Sunday evening again! I hope that you've been having a good week and weekend and plenty of crafting time too. I've been doing some crafting when I can, but have been plagued by headaches and a couple of horrible migraines this week - and a really stinky one from Friday night and all day yesterday.  That makes me even more resentful because I missed a whole day of my weekend lol!  But thankfully feeling a bit better today, even if a bit 'washed out', but I think another visit to the doctor might be in order to see if there's anything I can do.

Anyway, less of my moaning! I did treat myself last week to a couple of sets of the 'trio' stamps from LOTV, including a couple of the new Christmas ones which are sooo cute!  But this card was made with the very sweet teddies trio

The papers and stamps are from LOTV, and the sentiment ticket stamps are from Whimsy. I've coloured the teddies with copics and the die cut flowers were made with a Britannia die
Hope you like it! 

And you all know how much I love my crocheting (addicted to it is probably more honest), and I’m thrilled to be able to try using it for a brilliant cause.  A while ago I heard about a fantastic charity via the Joanna Sheen forum where I’ve been a ‘lurker’ for many years. And recently I volunteered my services –so I am currently working on knockers to become authorised to order board status for ‘Knitted Knockers UK’ and I’m hoping that soon my work can meet the standards required.  This is a wonderful charity that helps women who’ve had a mastectomy or lumpectomy, with gorgeously soft knitted or crocheted ‘prosthesis’ free of charge and the link to their website is HERE.  Do take a look if you’ve got chance – and help spread the word about the great work that they do. There is a fantastic team of talented ladies who volunteer lots of their time and skills in making the knockers and all support is welcome!  And it’s great to be able to spread the word about the Knitted Knockers to those many, many women who would benefit from their services. 

I'll keep you informed as to how I get on! 

I hope that you have a good week ahead - whatever you have planned.

Keeping busy (very!)

Hello all and I hope that you've had a good week - and that your weekend has been going well. It's been our usual busy one at home, with work, crafting and family life in general! I just thought I'd settle down yesterday afternoon to do some crafting as I had the house to myself (quite a rare occurrence) - I managed about an hour of colouring then got a text from darling son to say "is it ok if a few of us come back to ours for a bit?".  It ended up with having 7 teenagers (boys and girls!) lounging around the garden and conservatory, music playing and lots of chatter!  They'd all been to watch a rugby match at school and then ended up back at ours. But I'm not complaining really - I know only too well that in the blink of an eye there won't be any teenagers at home and then I'll really miss it! But the crafting came to a bit of a halt so I'll try and get some done this week!

I just thought I'd share a couple of the 'quick' cards that I made to restock the cardbox at home - those LOTV sentiment stamps are sooo handy for that!

This is using Kanban papers that I had in my stash, with some gold card for matting, and some lovely chunky buttons from the button box! 

This one uses LOTV papers with some lace and pearls. The metal flower embellishment was a stash find in a little craft shop when we were away in the summer! 

And the crocheting has still been underway - with a new baby blanket completed and added to the Etsy shop! 

I love the blue shades in this - and it's very soft and snuggly!  And I'm enjoying having the Etsy store - and was very pleased to get an order for a card from the US! Someone must have really liked my card and that is such a huge compliment!  Do take a look if you get chance HERE. 

I hope that the week ahead is a good one for you,

All sorts of recipes...

Hello all and I hope that you've had a good week - and I can't believe our weekend is nearly over again. It's just not fair that weekends seems to pass so quickly!

We've had a busy week and our youngest enjoyed his 17th birthday on Wednesday (despite having to be at school!) - and some of his friends were here to help him celebrate in the evening over pizzas!

I've been trying to make a few cards to top up the 'card box' that we have at home (and that occasionally gets taken into work by request when people need a card or two!).  Much as I love taking time over colouring stamped or digi images, sometimes time just doesn't allow, so I've been making a few that are a little quicker to finish - although I'm hoping they don't look 'rushed'!  I thought I'd share a birthday card and a Christmas card with you that I think look quite sweet, even though they don't have a coloured image!

The first one is a birthday card using an LOTV 'birthday recipe' stamp

The papers are also from LOTV. I've used buttons and twine from stash and a wooden star which I've stamped with a sentiment. Quite a simple card, and I think it's the colours I like! 

And a Christmas card using the LOTV 'Christmas recipe' stamps

I've added a touch of colour to the holly leaves, the papers are from LOTV and I've added a Britannia die poinsettia and Signature die holly leaves.

As I said, I think they are fairly simple but I think they work ok. 

I'll share some of the other 'card box' contributions this week! 

And I apologise for being a bit of a rubbish blogger just lately - I will make a concerted effort to catch up with everyone's crafting this week!

Special Birthdays....

Hello all and I hope that you've all had a good week, and an enjoyable weekend (even though it seems a long time ago now!).  We had a lovely Sunday evening, with some friends and some of my son Jack's friends here for a BBQ - making the most of the fine weather and just to mark his birthday. Tomorrow will be his 17th Birthday! I still can't quite get my head around the fact that my 'baby', the youngest of the family, is going to be 17 - although when I gaze upwards at all 6' plus of him it does remind me that he is growing up!  He's excited about the thought of starting driving lessons (which is his birthday present!) - and I've promised to warn our friends when he's on the road lol!  And I know that my view is a bit biased, but he's turning into a lovely young man - with a very sharp sense of humour!  We feel very, very blessed and proud of our gang - they've all turned into lovely people!

Anyway, thinking about birthdays, a friend had asked if I could make a birthday card for her daughter as she is celebrating her 18th so I came up with this one

I've used a Wee Stamps digi stamp - and I am so missing these digi stamps! I dearly hope that Sylvia Zett is soon able to sell her gorgeous digi stamps online again! 

I've coloured the image with copics and a touch of pencil.  The papers are from LOTV. I've added a die cut heart (from Memory Box), lettering from AllOccasions and Britannia die cut flowers.
Hope you like it.
