The bike lessons

So im sure you all want to know how i am getting on. Well a couple of words will sum it up , lets start with CRAP , totally SHIT , and STRESSED.
The 1st lesson great up until the last 15 mins and i came off , sorry i PANICED and came of .So this week i had talked to myself and thought everything would be ok .Got there and went through safety no problems , then on the bike start it up and off round the yard , fine up until the narrow part (which is where i came off last week ) and i decided to panic. Things just went down hill from here , so in the end i went for an hours ride on the back of one of the instructors bikes ( i just love riding pillion(sp)) .I have now decided to stop learning until i can sort the stress out and feel calmer about it .Peter been away for 3 weeks has me pretty stressed.I am also away a lot of the weekends coming up , 2 weekend scrapbooking retreats and then a weeks holiday at half term ,THEN i will go back to the lessons .I WILL NOT LET IT BEAT ME .

So today it's the Rusty Pickles Journal that's done and dusted .Realy liked this class was a double one , only draw back was the speed it was done at , which was super fast , even i got stressed at the time .
Pleased with the way it turned out and i no longer have it as it made a lovely present for a 50th wedding aniversary

Dollie beads

I dont have one yet but hope tio get one in the near future and start collecting these great beads.However in the mean time i wanted to let people see these new ones that Jaq has made this week she is hoping to raise money for the eve appeal, which raises funds for gynaecological cancer research. It's an appeal close to her heart, so she has made some very special dollies in teal green, the colour associated with ovarian cancer. 10% of all sales over the next week will be donated to the eve appeal.
Also in the coming months there will be future Awareness Beads for other charities too. Here is a link to her site

Noni Bags

Yes i've picked up my old knitting needles and made myself a lovely Noni bag.It's black and going to have a black and white set of handles with a black and white feather trimmed top. Well i say made it's knitted and felted and now all it needs is the lining , trim and handles added. So Hannah has kindly offered to do the lining for me , im not good with the sewing machine .In exchange im going to knit her a nice pink Noni bag.Well with that one knit i desided to do another one different style and colour , browns and creams this time.That's now knit so im starting another tonight whilst i watch The EuroVision Song Contest.Olivia has never seen it and wants to so we are going to get a take away , put on outr PJ's and have a laugh. This is not Noni bag but a different make very fluffy and sparkly this one. Keep watching as pictures will come soon.

Little Things

Times run away with me again and it's been a couple of weeks since last posting .

Little things is the theme of this months Alter That Kit , which has now gone postal.Here are some pictures of the projects you can do with the kit .

Cyber crop weekend on Ukscrappers didn't go too well for me as i had fogotten the template for the house , so it could be down loaded.My class thread turned rather nasty and i felt i was not given i fair chance to sort out the situation .I did get it sorted and it only took 10 mins to do so , but some people are just plain nasty.

Tuesday, April 17, 2007

Pick a letter

The idea is you get a letter, and then list 10 things that begin with that letter that have significance to your life. If any of you want to play, just email me or leave me a comment, and I'll send you your letter. Phyliss gave me M, so here goes:

MUM - I supose both been a Mum and having a Mum. Having a Mum still around is a gift i am thankfull for and i am guilty of not telling her enough. My Mum only lives round the corner so whenever i need her or just want a chat i know i can pop round and get the comfort i need from her .Been a Mum , never knew just how much hard work this was going to be or how enjoyable been a Mum would be , I love Olivia so much and feel so lucky to be a her Mum.

MARK - My brother , never seem to see enough of this man and he lives round the corner also.Back home with mum and dad , poor things. So easy going and layed back ou never stop angry with him long. Would do anything for me if i asked (but i never do LOL)

this is harder than you think , so i am going to keep coming back with my 10 thinks

Friday, February 02, 2007

More parcels from Gimme swaps

Yet more swaps have arrived this week so i thought it was about time i upload some of the photo's of all my lovely parcels from around the world.
This is a picture of all the lovel stuff i got from China , Olivia just loved the Hello Kitty bag and the little toy that when you pull a string moves heis legs and arms around. Lots of lovely sweet.
I am now totally addicted to swapping.

Money for Surveys

Yes you can get money for filling in surveys online and here is the link .There's no catch and i have had money from them , tested products and received vouchers for Pizza Hut etc .
Give it a go , if you don't like it unsubscribe .

  • survey

  • Had a terrible crafting night last night , had a go at making the tote bag , managed too sew 2 sides together only and then had loads of problems with cotton snapping , gave up on that ,then had a go with the dissolve stuff and some bit, broke a needle , gave up on that decided to cover my 6x6 album for Monday's class with black flock paper from paperchase , cut it all up only to find it is far to thick to cover it , gave up on that went and had a stiff drink , didn't give up on that .Don't know if i dare attempt anything tonight .Think i might have a go at doing some 6x6 pages or even some "inchies" how had can they be..........................

    More Gimme Your Stuff

    It's arrived another great parcel from another great Gimme Your Stuff swappie, took 4 weeks but well worth the wait and as you can see from the picture Olivia got stuck into the lollies straight away .Who could blame her with all that lovely candy. My husband enjoyed this parcel also as his favourite cakes were in Twinnkies. I sat down with the lovely magazine Krista had sent and some of the chocolate after having a real good look at all the stuff. Thanks Krista!

    Had a scrapbboking day at the community centre today , but had little "mojo" .I need to sort out some good pictures .Started a few layout and now all they need is a photo and a few odds"n"ends adding
    I do hope the little pink shrine and dominoe doll has arrived for Tree , it was a UkScrappers swap i arranged ,for sending 5 things to alter .I got a large match box , dominoes , paper , german scrap and metal round letter .Here's what i did with it .
