I need to get back to scrapping

I need some mojo first though. I seriously need to get back to what I really like doing and that is scrapping! I am hoping that the retreat that I am on a countdown to attend is going to spark me back into life of 12" x 12" paper and cardstock.

To that end, I have been going through the accumulation of stamps and having a bit of a clearout, they have been put onto eBay it feels better having a spring clean now and then.

On another note, scrapping is coming back into my life again. Hopefully next year I will have a local scrapping (cardmaking) crop, depending on whether anyone in Norfolk does this! There is a local craft circle but basically, I need to scrap, I miss the monthly crops etc. Papertrends.co.uk is also having a revamp.

I'm getting to play with Adobe Illustrator but well basically need to play more. Am endeavouring to get stuff so I can cut it on the cricut, but, it ain't just happening for me, got to look into that a bit more there must be a tutorial out on the web somewhere.

What a day

Must have drunk something! I have been having a whale of a time, in between getting up and having to walk around as my back keeps going (does it even when sitting down!). Playing with the Christmas and little animal stamps (a simple card for someone who will be 4 next week).



The giraffes have spots but I had to get the Sakura pens out and colour them in to add a bit of glitter effect. Scallop punched some black cardstock and also got the punches out again for the circles. Having fun using up some of the old stuff I have accumulated and the little Sizzix pads are working a treat.

So far... two

Finished up two cards, Hero Arts and the balancing owls, coloured in using promarkers, may just have to indulge in some copics one day! Paper from a Sizzix pad I found lurking and scallop punched the edge of one of the sheets, all adhered to some A4 cardstock trimmed down to A5 size. I have some santas waiting to be stuck down later on something else!

Nearly back at work

Finally going back to work on Monday, it's been a bit of a haul with B - still don't know what they are going to do with him - and my back, but heck the valium is keeping it a bit at bay, I'm a walking body of pain relief! Got my appt for the lumbar spine x-ray, 26 October (start of half term so not too much mucking around).

Back to work on Monday means also back to the diet! Have been loitering around the same weight for the past few weeks, comfort eating and not eating as no appetite!.

Did some stamping today, found my Hero Art Owls, stamped them, coloured them then the mojo took a walk - to the kitchen - and never returned!

Then when it did return, started stamping some Reindeer, getting ready to make some 'magical reindeer food', oh and stamping bats as you know something, it will soon be Halloween. Then I found the owls!

Waiting to get back to normal...

..with everything that has gone on over the past two weeks I need some normality. Brian was allowed to come home last week but has to go back this week for an MRI scan on the heart and then it will be decided does a pacemaker (ICD) go in or not, genetic rather than something he has done but still you don't know if or when it is going to happen again. To add to it, my back has gone into one and is an absolute killer; one is not a happy bunny.

Anyhow, I had some therapy and got some time to make some ATCs for a Halloween swap, a card using my rooster stamp and some Christmas cards. Crafting is therapeutic :)



I've got some more to play with but for now it is a school day tomorrow and there are bathtimes calling for 3 kidlets.
