Some 'Me' Time!

Managed to get myself to our local crop for the first time in are some of the layouts I did. The First is using basic grey porcelain, and the second and third are jillibean soup papers made using a kit from sarahs cards.

I feel a bit stale with my scrapping lately...I used to scrap constantly before becoming a mummy, and I must say I do miss being able to sit down with no interuptions and go into my own world and let loose! I find it harder to scrap at crops than I do at home....I suppose its all about being in my comfort zone and having everything to hand.

But beggars can't be choosers and I had a cool time having a laugh and getting some stuff done!

Managed to get a mini project done amongst dirty nappies, feeds, and the laundry! Didnt take too long and was a little rushed, but I am happy with the end result. The papers are jenny bowlin an old range can't even remember what its called, and the embellishments are old stash I am trying to use up.

I like the contrast of red cream and black so have been boring and stuck to just these colours!

My Wish For You

Managed to get a few layouts done, TJ seems to be so demanding I hardly get time to scrap anymore! I thought babies are meant to sleep most of the day so always thought id be able to get stuff done until he could walk...but TJ does NOT like to sleep! I cant complain too much I guess as he has always been really good through the night, hence the extra energy through the day!

Anyhow this layout was inspired by a Rascall flatts song called "my wish for you" they are beautifull lyrics and are exactly everything i wish for my little man.

Bed Head!!!

Tijay first thing in the morning.....Isnt He just the sweetest thing ever! I cant believe he is already 3 and a half months old! He is such a sweet natured adorable little thing and i cant wait to have more. Im totally in love with him and he is my little ray of sunshine. Me and mes can't believe how being parents have made us feel...its the best feeling in the world and we love it!

more stash...yikes i was really naughty at the weekend!!!

Went to ally Pally at the weekend and spent an absoloute fortune....I really dont neeeeeeeddddd anymore stash but i think im just addicted! I got myself some promarkers (have had my eye on these for a while!) and i stocked up on my papers as I just couldnt resist. Plus a few other bits n pieces.... Have a look isn't it just yummy?

I really need to excersise some self control and I have promised myself ...No More STASH for a very long time! At least untill the next ally pally......

I had a sort out of my craft room and sold some of my stuff on UKS and although im sad about it its kind of a relief as its just not getting used. Continued the selling at a bootsale yesterday and made wayyyy more than i expected perfect for buying more stash lol...but am gonna be sensible and not spend a penny of it! (yeah ok i hear you say!)

Altered Little Box

Here is a little box I altered...again for mum isn't she lucky LOL! I actually bought her earrings for Christmas this year and thought the box was a bit I bought a bare box and made it a little more interesting for those earrings! I was really happy with it and thought it looked rather cute! The stamp is one of my faves, I have used it time and time again..unlike some of my other stamps that seem to be collecting dust!

Altered Mothers Day Book

It's mothers day on Sunday...cant believe how quickly this has come round! I always try to make an effort to make mum something special and handmade as she loves, appreciates and treasures everything I give her...but with a 2 month old I just have not had the opportunity this year! I was browsing through my photos and found this, which is what I made her last year for mothers day.

I'm a mummy Now

Since starting this blog have not managed to add anything to it.. have been way to busy with my new toy - a beautiful baby boy who we named Tijay. I never knew I would enjoy being a mum so much...especially as my motto in the past has been "eughh KIDS? never!" Well I can categorically state that I want more....SOON! Im loving every minute and am absoloutly in love with Tijay!
