........for the long break in blogging.
I just got to the point where I was sick of the sight of my blog and didn't feel like I had much to say about anything. I was even sick of crafting although I think that maybe had more to do with lack of time to do what I would like to do rather than had to do.
There was also a bit of stash hatred going on as I have been trying for months to use stuff up.......but no!!! For the last couple of weeks I have been spending like I won the lottery (I wish) and have so much new stuff I now don't know where to start.
There is a new Cricut machine and cartridges, lots of new dies (and more to come), masses of new cardstock, stamps, ink pads and sparkly stuff and I have spent the last couple of days tidying the workroom which had got in a bit of a state and now I am raring to go.
Next week should see me crafting to my hearts content as Ruby is off for week with mummy and daddy. No major jobs booked in apart from a clean up in the kitchen ready for the festive cooking and baking. I shall be one happy bunny.
DD and I had a day at the NEC on Friday. Oh my life it was mad. We managed to stick it out until 2pm and then we'd had enough of being elbowed and battered. I did manage to get near enough early on to buy some stuff though and did get most of the things on my list.
So onwards and upwards. Hopefully I shall have things to post by the weekend.
Tara for now.


  1. Glad to see you back ! I always feel I should try to use old stash up but it doesn't inspire does it ! Look forward to seeing your creations with all your new toys

  2. Glad to see you back posting Sheila, I wondered where you had gone. Good to see you keeping our economy afloat. Waiting in anticipation to see your new creations. Just wished I lived near as I would love to 'play' in your craft room.
    Hugs xx

  3. Sometimes I wonder why I bought some of the craft items that I have in my stash, but then you find the perfect spot to put that little goodie! It would be nice to go on a bit of a shopping spree every once in a while!
    I enjoy your blog and hope you find that free time you have been looking for.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
It is much appreciated.
