I have had a re-jig and tidy of my craft area and feel much happier now :D I have put my expression on the table instead of the shelf unit as I never seem to have space to get it out, which then puts me off using it :( Which is a shame as I love it :D Talking of Cricut there are six new releases coming up, check them out here I NEED Picturesque and Serenade - soooo pretty :D
I also found a fab e-bay shop selling the most gorgeous scrappy style costume jewellery and very cheap!!! If you like bold jewelry and birdies check out http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Skorbee-Jewelry-Shop I have actually ordered a couple of extras to use in my scrapbooks.
Hugs'n'snogs J xx
P.S don't know why i'm underlined here, but I can't stop it!!!
in the epic mini book LOL I have just finished two pages of my great great grandparents - I'll take photos tomoz I promise :D The only think now is I'm not sure who the grandma is as my gg grandad remarried LOL I'm going to add that to the journalling though :D
All I have left then is my dads dad page and the inside and back cover, then I need todecide how to bind it :D I kinda wanted to include a family tree somehow but it's so big its impossible LOL been trying to trace my great grandads stepbrother today with absolutely no success :( He seems to vanish at 28!! I am guessing his desendants are the Uncle Billy who had a second hand shop in Ribbleton Lane, Preston and his daughter Jane that my mum remembers but can't find anything on any of them :(
I had to make another appointment at the dentist tonight becausewhilst eating one of those incredibly hard to eat Magnums (????) my filling came out again :( I'll be on the dentists Christmas card list at this rate :( I did debate sticking it back in with Diamond Glaze LOL
On the nice side, I haved posted the following on my facebook status...
If you are reading this, even if we don't speak very often, post a comment with a memory of you & me. It can be anything you want, either good or bad... When you're finished post this paragraph on your own status & you'll be suprised what people remember about you!
I have had such a giggle at the memories, especially the Merkin conversation LOL ( If your brave and don't know what one is google it, but it is rude LOL) But also some sweet memories :D like my niece remembers me giving her a decorated hatbox when she hadher daughter, which she used as a memory box :D
Post it, you will enjoy the results, I promise :D
Hugs'n'sloppy sentimental tooth achey hugs :D Julie xx
and the rain, rain, rain came down, down, down LOL did it not!!! We postponed and only went on Saturday in the end as Friday was a bit of a washout. We had to do two runs because we couldn't fit the dog in!!!! LOL it's a good job we are only half an hour away or he was Home Alone..... only kidding :D
Managed the new(ish) tent no probs - in fact it was a doddle,and just got it all set up before it rained:D Paul returned and we headed off for a little walk...... NEVER AGAIN!!! I thought my heart was going to jump out it was beating so fast LOL when did I get so unfit??? I climb ladders at work nearly every day :o Saturday evening was nice but was eaten to death by midges, and left the brandy hotchoc a little bit late to start and was scared of waking peeps up with the whistling kettle.... so we had brandy "warm" choc instead :D Paul had to wake the dog up because he was dreaming, then felt the need to wake me up to let me know it was raining :o what was that about??
Sunday, the heavens opened again, so we left the tent up, took the dog and some stuff home and went back for it when the sun had kindly dried it for us :D
Still happy campers though :D Hugs and midgey snogs, J xx
I've been a paper scrapbooker since 2004 and also like to hybrid scrap.
I'm just trying to learn digi scrapbooking - but it may take a while.
I have always enjoyed arts and crafts from a young age and have dabbled in most things from knitting, jewellery making, card making etc...
I'm also loving altered art and am a Tim Holtz newbie addict :D
I'm a vintage girl trapped in a modern world, so I'm just going to alter it bit by bit :D
