An unusual Christmas Present.




This is just some of the cards I have made for a friend as her Christmas pressie. I really am worried she wont like it.

Well I have been really busy since June, played Ferdinand (my guitar) in public twice.  Both times really difficult but I conquered my fear and did a good job both times so I was told. Shared the YouTube video of the 1st outing in another post.

Anyway Peeps hope you all have a fab Christmas

Rend Collective - Simplicity

love this pared down version of this song.  Its simple words are profound and hard to sing when you are not in the right place with God

16 months in a short blog

Hello all

Well the last 16 months have taken their toll on me.  Health wise I am not brilliant at the mo.  Neither me not the hubby have been well since Boxing Day 2014.

But I have a new Guitar for myself and I am getting used to paying again after 23 years.

Only 1 person knew what I was buying for myself so gave them the task of naming him.  She called him Ferdinand and it has stuck.

Trying to get some time each day to play him can proof difficult but I am trying to do it.  

This last 12 months has been really difficult for my extended family my daughter has had loads of problems with one of her childrens' health.  1 good thing that happened is that my brother got married in Oct to a very beautiful lady.  But his health have not been good since December either.  
Work is hard going, but whose isn't these days .  
Good friends and family have been the key to keeping me sane this last few months.

    New year 2014

    So what is going to happen this year.  Don't know but it has to be better than last year.  
    last year can be spelt by the word
    TROUBLE x infinity.

    Had a really difficult year and still no end to the tunnel but hey that's life.  Just wish we could have a easier couple of years.  But cant see that happening.

    Best thing that happened last year, I gained an Adult daughter, My sister in law asked me to become her mom and i had no hesitation in saying yes.
    Worth the wait I say.

    So what are my resolutions for this year.

    Use what I have and not buy more than i need for my craft stuff.
