I finally made Neil Burley's mannequin!

I finally got around to making the gorgeous dress for the mannequin using Craftwork Cards papers.

Having a ball designing again

I  have rediscovered my love of designing this time using my Brother Scan n Cut. I have made two new card shapes.

Here we are back in Orlando

This is our 6th time here in 10 years and we still love it as much as ever. The girls have done Disney and Universal again and at Gatorland I realised a long held dream and held a snake 😍
We have of course done the obligatory shopping and poolside sunbathing πŸ˜‚

This time last year we came over after my first op and bought my eldest grandson and I was going home for my completion surgery -  such a lot has happened so I needed this break badly.  I have missed Callie Harley Maisie and Lula so much and can't wait to see the dogs reactions when we collect them on Friday 🐢😊

I have been suffering with awful highs and lows since my Ovarian Cancer diagnosis and subsequent 2 operations and hysterectomy almost a year ago now. So getting back into crafting I am hoping will help. I had all my hair cut off as I was so fed up but last night decided to make the effort and put some make up on for a date night at my favourite restaurant. Silly snapchat filter a must!!

We are off to Florida for the 6th time in 11 days and I really need the sunshine this time and the chance to do some shopping - craft and otherwise!! :) Last year I came back and had my hysterectomy a week later so I feel in dire need of this break.

Spectrum Noirs

So I splurged and bought all the 165 Spectrum Noir markers and had a go at my first stamped image. It is a Unity Stamp image and I am quite pleased for a first go 😊😊 #unitystamps #spectrumnoir

Happy 1st Birthday to my precious girl

Our darling Callie is 1 yr old today. I cannot believe we have had her in our lives for 10 whole months. I can't imagine a day without her now and she is the dearest, sweetest, most loyal girl - albeit a little nutty at times πŸ˜‚ she just loves people, especially children and other dogs and is so friendly and always ready to play. Happy Birthday darling girl, we all love you to pieces. 🐢 πŸ’•

Long Break from blogging and another new puppy!

I haven't posted for a long time now. It's been a turbulent couple of years health wise and I've dipped in and out of crafting. I added to my fur baby family in January with Harley, another Cavapoo puppy and Callie's playmate. She blended into the family so well and Callie and she adore one another which makes me feel so happy as Callie is such a lovely girl and needed a playmate. Harley is a little timid unlike her sister and at 5 months old now doesn't really enjoy walking or big open spaces so it is a little challenging trying to walk them together as Harley likes to have Callie in sight and Callie likes to run ahead!
