How Lazy!!

Have I been! Getting up late, doing nothing much and its wearing me out LOL!!
New Cooker coming on 12th ..ahh well..It gives me plenty of time to sort the kitchen out ..Not that i have started yet! Our Kitchen is REALLY small and the walls are awful, due to bad paintwork etc. It desperately needs doing and there's not that much wall to do ..Not sure how to decorate it as i want it to be sunny..probably a yellow colour..I can't afford to get it re plastered , so will probably either use lining paper or add something to the paint to add more texture..Any ideas?????
Am about to reclaim my scrapping space back as i haven't done anything over the holiday and i have a few Birthdays coming up, plus the 25th of Nov and Dec pages to do. Hopefully the Feb scrapaGoGo's kit will be arriving soon :D
Not been that impressed with the sales so far ( scrapbook) but i love the stuff at ATDML and they started their sale today :D ..Go Look
Just wanted to wish anyone reading this a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Hope its a good one for you

A belated Happy Christmas!!

Time just flew! Hope everyone had a wonderful time:)
Anyone who knows my family well, will KNOW that our Christmas will not have gone without the odd glitch LOL and of course that is true. SO RIP my cooker ..who died while cooking Christmas dinner!! ...You would think that sort of thing would only happen once in a lifetime wouldn't you ? ...No the exact same thing happened about 15 yrs ago and my darling mum cooked our dinner that time. This time I would like to thank my little sis ( with the BIG oven) xxxx.
New cooker ordered and hopefully arriving soon.
I am recovering from flu and am now starting to want to eat again..unfortunately wasn't off my food long enough to loose much weight though ;)
We had a wonderful evening yesterday playing games with little sis and family. I was both surprised at how good ( and competitive ) Meg was :).
No scrapping done at all i had to tidy it all away ..i shall start to mess up the dinning room again soon though :)

December designs

For scrapaGoGo. I have also made loads of cards from this fab kit too.
Have just finished school for the holidays and am SO tired. It has been a week and a half ( thats an understatement) but I am looking forward to a bit of rest before I have to tidy away my craft room ( dining room) for Christmas.

A few more from the weekend

The first two I have used some hugware
The last one has vintage clipart on it. I still need to make another 20 (ish!!)

Some more

The last two are my favs. The labels are from here
They were printed out and embossed a few times, bunged in the freezer and then crackled. I also used my slice to make the flowers.

I made a few cards

The bejeweled Christmas trees are inspired by Marlene's Stunning tree card. I have a few more to show you tomorrow.

New Winter header

That's also a sneaky peek at ScrapaGoGo's Dec kit :)
I knew that this would happen, that thing would start to get manic. Too much to do and not enough time to do it! This is probably one of the last weekends before Christmas that i can scrap. You see i am using the dinning room table and will have to clear everything away ( and try to FIND the dinning room ) soon. I still have only made three Christmas cards, so need to get my act together!
Dan is playing football for his school tomorrow , but its in Lowestoft ( 30 + miles away!) So no lie in and an hour + trip :( ..Am i bad to hope its rained off? Yes!
Really sad to find that the pier is closing ..i LOVE that shop.
I am off to the clothes show with the school on Wednesday which will be nice in a mad, manic sort of way!
Right back to card making!

Well .....

Even after the weekend , i still feel shattered! Mind you, it was a really busy weekend. I spent a wonderful day at the Wyverstone Christmas Crop...I think it is the first time i have managed a Christmas one. We played games, had secret Santa and went out for a meal at a local pub. Brill..I am ashamed to say that i made ONE card!! And a bad one at that! LOL
Sunday i took the girls to the local garden center to get some Christmas cards and bits. we had lunch there too. Then we popped into Diss to get some food shopping ( although i slipped a couple of presents in my basket when they weren't looking) Because of my gadding about, i got very behind in the housework etc and the place STILL looks like a bomb has hit it.
Doesn't look like things will let up much this weekend as Dan has a football match on Sat and needs to be there by 10.30 LOWESTOFT!! ( 35 miles away).
I have made a total of two Christmas cards so far, so need to get a move on.
