Immaculate's lovely note

I received a thankyou hand written by Emmaculate yesterday.It was so touching and made my week..it read 'How are you? I hope you are fine and doing well.Thankyou for the gifts you sent me.Thankyou for loving me.I love you so much May God Bless You bye bye Love from immaculate'.Supporting Watoto has been such a pleasure so far please check out their website.I will be auctioning another book on ebay in October for Watoto.

Eid Mubarak

I loved making these trading cards for the girls at work..I'll not be there next year and will miss them.For the past 3 years I've worked in various communities that have honoured the 'Blessed month of Ramadan' and celebrated Eid. Activities have varied from being very involved in delivering Eid parties (lots of fun andgot to dress up too!) to creating these little tokens.

This weekends coming crafty creations

These are the mini boxes and notelets we are making this weekend.I've used ink and stamping to decorate one and then experimented embossing for a christmas one ...hoping to have fun this weekend with making these again in good company girls.The template can be found on www.melsstampz.blogspot.com ..she shares and is really inspirational thankyouoooooo

Back on track

I've two lovely projects for other people I'm getting into this weekend. I'm looking forward to the getting stuck in and am about to take the dining table hostage to get the first one on the go.I'll post photos later.This first album is going to be a larger paper bag album for a work colleague to store some preschool memries for her son.He has some favourite things and so I've sat down and chosen the colours and papers from a lovely K and Co range called rough and tumble. More die cuts are on there way and there will be plenty of storage space for things alongside some pages celebrating her little boys favourite things and areas to celbrate his transition and growth through the preschool years.
I'm also excited about getting together a wee keepsake for Harry...what a joy it will be I love doing these little 4 x 4 for boys, and they seem to like them to!think it is likely to be rustled up over next weekend.
Thanks to my pals things have lifted my spirits and my emotional barometer is back 'up there'..our canal run in the sunshine this morning was great.....upwards and onwards...
