It was a bit brighter than I Imagined....

I've recently finished a cardigan for my daughter. She chose the colour and the buttons (sparkly), but it became clear the closer to finishing I got, that this jumper was going to be incredibly bright...
Colour is Stylecraft Matador.

When rainy days require quick and easy ideas

I have a confession to make. I love aldi cake mixes. I know it isn't 'real' baking, but they're so handy to have in cupboard!  Today has been especially rainy so we whipped up a batch of ginger cakes with added grated carrot.

*not affiliated with aldi in any way.

Sunshine in January.

You can't beat a bit of sun for making everything seem ok.

Project fail

It's that time of year again, where I think how much I would love to do project life, then realise I have no money to buy anything.

I had to do it. I had to share my Christmas with you. I worked the nights of Christmas eve and Day, so my festivities were a little fragmented. But the important thing was that little lady got a Thomas from santa.
Lots of food was eaten,  tummies were full and laughs were had.

I bought paperchase week on two inserts, some month to view, some finance pages and ordered custom dividers. I have two 4 colour pens which DONT FIT IN THE PEN LOOP!! argh!!

Wiltshire Roller Derby Christmas party!!

Last night was my team's Christmas party! We hired a pub basement, there was food,  secret santa, Live  music and party games!! We even found a guy who looked a bit like a ZZ Top santa!

Too much looking, not enough scrapping.

Does anyone else find that? I spend so long looking and longing at other artists projects and products  that I find I don't have time for my own! And they never live up to my expectations! I keep meaning to try project life but never get around to it. I keep meaning to try and make a December Daily album but never get around to it...can you see a pattern?

Don't procrastinate, do!

Meeting santa

Yesterday we went to a big localish farm centre and we visited Santa. We made reindeer food, saw reindeer,  had mince pies and finally met a real Santa. We even came away with a really lovely gift.
The centre also had a restored carousel,  which we went on. Not a good idea when you get travel sick...

Missing Darwin

I wanted to  scrap something for Darwin,  and found the perfect layout on the October Afternoon blog by Shanna Noel I loved the simplicity of the layout but also wanted to include journalling,  so I added the journalling to the back.

Please excuse the poor lighting.
