Bad blogger!

Hello to you all, that is if you're still around, I hope so :)) 

 I've been a very negligent crafter and  Blogger since I moved house. I still have lots of renovations to do but the bigger stuff, is done! hooray! 
I'm hoping to get into my craft room this afternoon to try and turn it into a usable craft space once again,  not the dumping ground it has become. It was the only room not being altered in any way so consequently "stuff" just got dumped either in here or the shed! I can hardly move in here (craft room) or the shed! As to finding my crafty stash well that's another matter altogether! So fingers crossed that "normal or as near normal, services will be resumed in the very near future".

 I did manage to do one or two commissioned  cards. Here's on of my favourites, made for a friends grandaughter who is at uni studying fashion and design

If you're still around thank you for your patience and loyalty . Looking forward to catching up with you all.
