Exciting News!

My friend Katrina and I have decided to start a craft group here in Coventry! We have been thinking about this for a while and have now found a venue to hold our event.

It will be the 2nd Monday of each month, starting 12 October from 7 - 9pm at Hearsall Baptist Church (on the corner of Hearsall Lane and Queensland Ave, Chapelfields, CV5)

This is an opportunity to meet other crafters and share ideas and inspiration. There will be refreshments provided, all levels of crafters welcome!

There will also be occasional workshops/make and takes etc. For more information please visit the blog

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. If you live locally we would love to see you there. Please email us at if you want to come so we can keep a count of numbers etc.

Cost is £3 to cover room hire. Workshops will cost more but will be advertised in advance. Bring your own craft supplies and project to work on for the first meeting.

Hope to see you there!

Forever Friends Girl and Boy

Here are 2 more cards I made for the CRY sale - for the birth of a baby girl or boy. The cards are identical in layout but obviously just pink or blue!! I picked up the forever friends stamps a while ago and these are the first time I got round to putting some ink on them!

Recipe for both cards:
Paper/Cardstock - mainly Papermania, Forever Friends or from my stash

Images - Forever Friends
Sentitment - SU
Others - Ribbon and safety pins from stash

Only a quick post from me - hopefully I'll have some more creations to share soon, if I get round to making any!

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave, until next time....

Back to creations!

So I think I may have bored you all with baby talk so back to creations now! The first pic shows my craft sale for charity that I held at work - not very exciting but I think the cards looks cute on my little rack - quite a few people mentioned how nice is was, I could have sold that 10 times over itself!

The next pic shows some of the shopping list size notepads I made - these flew out like hot cakes! They have been covered using a variety of stuff from different companies, mainly SU!, doodlebug and bazzill.

These are a selection of the small notepads I made too - I left these simple as they were so small.

I need to get crafting to build my stock back up and to make some cards for a few people. However I've slightly lost my mojo after making so much for the sale!

Before I go I must say Happy Birthday to my parents - my Mum's birthday is today and my Dad's was on Monday. Happy Birthday mummy and daddy - love you both lots!

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave. Until next time....

Baby Ollie

A quick post from me today, to share a photo of baby Ollie! (I have his mummy's approval for this!) I went to see them last night in the hospital and he is just gorgeous!

Congratulations Bec, Scott and Grace.

The baby (and me!) is here!

Sorry for the lack of posts this week, I've been mega busy. But on to more exciting news first!

Today my friend Bec (finally) gave birth to baby Ollie Jake Curtis! Hurrah, the little stinker took his time to come out as he was due on 31 August! May be he wanted to wait and have an extra special birthday 09/09/09! He was born at 10.08 this morning by C-Section and weighed in at 9lb 6oz!

As soon as I get a photo of him I'll be sending out her baby announcement cards. I can't wait to get to have a munch, although it will probably be in a few days as she's got to stay in hospital to recover from the surgery. Here is a little gift I got for her when I first found out she was pregnant - see the theme of giraffe's continues on!! I just love this little suit, I hope he can get into it for a few wears! (The photo also shows the card I made for them.)

So, why have I been busy? Well I decided to set a date for my CRY sale - it was today! I made £43 from today's sale, added to my previous sale that gives me a total of £84 for the charity. I took 32 cards and 10 notepads in to work, and I'm pleased to say I sold all the notepads and have only 9 cards left!

I'll share photos of my sale and more of my cards over the next week. Must crack on with an SU! order now!

Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you may leave, until next time.....
