Hi there to you all.
Hope everybody has had a decent Monday, well as I have been using foil tape to create Oz I thought I would use some to make a couple of signs for my nephew`s bedroom door,

So Much traffic today :o)

I would like to start this post with a Big Thank you to Clare of My Creative Spirit, she has so kindly put some of my doodleing onto her blog and invited all you kind crafters to come on over to my blog and have a look ... I was bowled over by the amount of people that have done just that... Thank you One and all, it has made my day to see how many of you have taken the time to come over.
I find it amazing that we are all strangers but one comon thing links us all and that is the world of crafting, whatever medium any of us choose to use we share the joy of creating things, I am so thrilled to have made new Freinds within the community it gives me such a boost .... Also that fellow crafters have asked my opinion on certain things, I smile because what do I know ? Then I thought about it, we all learn from each other, and if we find an easy way of doing something or a way of putting something together then we share and help others ... AINT CRAFTING GREAT !!!! I love it ... 
Thank you Aj my other half, The Male Card Maker, for getting me involved and encouraging me to set up a blog and find my own way ..... Love him to bits :o)

Pulled shoulder :o/

Hi People . 
Just a general moan maybe cos of how Im feeling, I injured my shoulder at work and its been painful for quite a while so thought it about time I got it sorted, its been like this since last September.... work related.
I went to the outpatients thismorning and was going well ... see the nurse, then wait, see the doctor, then wiat, sent to X-ray, wait back to the Dr then wait, asked to come in and he said hes having to WAIT for the X-rays to come back... so I said " OK shall I wait in the waiting room" ... he said " No an apointment will be given to you" 
So now I have to wait 3 weeks to find out what Ive done ... LOL can anyone see the theme here.. LOL LOL So guess I will just have to put up with it for a bit longer. 
Moan over, and thinking about it there is worse off people out there that really do need seeing to first....... Happy Monday to you all ..

Busy day ... trying to finish a Zendoodle which I have been picking up to relax and it worked .. Still not quite finished but very nearly so thought I would share it with you guys.

Also I have had another order for 10 more meander books for the shop in town Serendipity. So I am happy they are selling and people are liking the vintage look.
With these ones I have used some paper given to me by my sister that looks like old leather, it worked out great ... Please let me know what you think....
