How the time flies….

Yes, how the time flies when we’re having fun! Except I can’t say I’ve been having much fun. Most days I stay so busy I feel like a puppy chasing its tail…. do you know the feeling?

Crafting has definitely taken a back seat lately. Between all my duties with the local Women’s Institute, keeping up with the housework, and just every now and then reading a craft magazine or playing around with some cardmaking (usually project that ends up in the trash), I can’t seem to find time to sit down and do any REAL crafting. We’ve had the planning approved on an extension, so I’m just a bit closer to remodeling my craft room, but the wheels of progress (and the architect we’re using) seem mired in molasses!

Here are a couple of scrapbook pages I’ve done … sort of recently:

This is my soon-to-be-one year old grandson, Cameron. He literally fell asleep eating! What a face, though!!! The next one is of all four grandchildren. My son’s two (the older ones in the back) and my daughter’s two (the little ones in the front). Have to admit I’m a very proud grandma. They’re all just lovely, live in Texas, and I’ll be seeing them in two weeks. Can’t wait!!!


For this one (above) I used the Simple Stories collection kit titled “Summer Fresh”. I love the bright colors.

The card below is a little one I tried as an experiment. It’s a Papermania stamp I bought on a whim just because I loved it. I used ProMarkers to color them. The card is 6x6, my new favorite size.

Arrrgghh, my spell checker is driving me crazy. It can’t decide if I should use UK or US spelling, so for this post, I’m using US spelling. Next one I’ll use UK spelling, maybe. I always was the best speller in my school but it’s been all ruined now as I have to flip back and forth between the two systems and I’m constantly having to stop and choose (or wonder) which is which! So sorry!

Anyway, I know it’s been much too long since I posted anything, but hope to keep it more up-to-date in the future. Thanks for visiting my blog.


  1. LOL! Love that asleep while eating photo - precious!

  2. Love the cousins page - did you hand piece that gorgeous chevron border?

  3. That chevron border was part of another page, so I cut it and pieced onto the picture, atop the photo in other words. I love the bright colors! That paper collection is just fabulous.

  4. Gorgeous LOs you have such cute grandchildren - no wonder you are so proud. I love the papers on the 2nd one x
