Humbug Free Christmas Shopping.

Humbug Free Christmas Shopping. Well, even though the TV and shops were shouting about it since Halloween, Christmas is finally here! The tree is up since the 1st December (it’s never been that early before), mince pies have been consumed and Hallmark movies are on a loop. What have I been doing since my last […]

How to sew a Goose.

  How to sew a goose. We’ll get to the goose soon…. Once upon a time I started a blog. This blog was called Scrapzville and I had it for many years. Looking back at the first year or two I see that I wrote long, rambling posts, as if you (the reader) and I were […]

Quilt update.

Quilt update. Remember that quilt? I’m pretty sure my last blog post said something like,” Tune in next week for an update…” well, here it is almost a month later! I actually did finish it within that first week, of course you’ll just have to take my word for it, but I did. But here […]

Super Easy Quilt Making.

Super Easy Quilt Making. ‘Super easy quilt making’ is probably the wrong title for this post. It should actually read, ‘ Make it up as you go ‘. This morning I was doing my favourite Sunday morning activity. That would be drinking coffee in my p.j’s whilst browsing Pinterest – when I came across this: […]

Christmas 2016.

Christmas 2016. Suddenly it is 2017. 2016 has passed by in a blur. In four days the decorations will come down. December just vanished, we were all busy, but it went by so fast. Just in case this year passes as quickly I want to document our decorations. I had great intentions of doing this […]

That Friday Feeling!

That Friday Feeling! For some reason I am filled with Fridayosity today. This is odd since I don’t have a Monday to Friday job, but lets go with it anyway! What do I have to show you today? well, I finished the painting of the little creatures that weren’t pigs. They are in fact ‘Spoonlings’ […]

Planner Review – Episode 2.

Planner Review – Episode 2. Hello again, last week I looked at the Filfox, MAMBI, Erin Condren and Kate Spade planners. Today I have four more, you might not have heard of them all, but I thought they had enough good points to review them. This first one is called the Classic Agenda. Nope, […]

Planner Review – Episode 1.

Planner Review – Episode 1. As I said in the last post, choosing a planner is a big deal. They can be pretty expensive, so you need to know you’ll use it.  My first planner was in 1990, just as the Yuppy period was coming to an end I finally saved enough to buy a […]

Back to school means..

Back to school means…. Okay, it means the kids go back to school. But, what about all the things that go with that? like new school bags, new notebooks, new folders and my all time favourite new pencil cases! It also means new starts to me,like a new years day all over again. No matter […]

The Joys of getting Older.

The joys of getting older.   When I write my odd ramblings on this blog I don’t really consider who might read it. I used to, and do you know what? It really held me back because I worried about what those people might think. That sentence has a lot to answer for. (source) I hadn’t […]
