About Me

Im 39 years old and work in retail as a Deputy Manager. I love to craft whether it be cardmaking or altering something. I have been crafting for almost 10 years and it helps me to relax after those busy days at work. My big aim was to blog regular and get onto a design team, now Im on 2. Very proud to have recently made Jones design team. I am godmother to 2 lovely children Matty & and Rebecca...Hope you all like what you see and thanks so much for reading my blog and leaving comments.

Hello ,

Apologies for the absence & lack of craft but life is so busy at the moment. Im juggling Wedding preparations, work and everything else at the minute. But I wanted to share a project that I did a few months back but have only just added the extra touches to it. Its a graphic 45 by the sea altered frame.....
Hope that you like it. Anyway another reason for this post is as you know when I get to 50 followers I will be doing a blog candy. The wonderful people at stix2 have donated some product for me to share between my craft club & the blog candy - how generous thanks Stix2. 
I will split it into 2.
I also have some lovely toppers, brads and a wooden album so far. And don't forget I will do my best to get some things to add to it in Florida. When its finally together I will post the full picture.
Right enough rambling from me. Hope that everyone is well and enjoying the sun.
Thanks for visiting, hugs Elaine xx

Fantastic friends !

Good evening, I thought I would share a few pictures of my hen party.... Which amazingly was all day. It was organised by my chief bridesmaid Emma who did so many nice things in top secret. I only knew times.....
Some of my closest friends gave up hard earned money just for me & I was truly humbled by the generosity. I arrived at Shelley's house ( Emma's mum & my matron of honour ) at 12.30, I thought we were having a spot of lunch but when I went in they had organised a craft teacher to come & we all made pages for a keepsake hen party book with places for photos. ( lisa Bird will be on c&c )
And we used my favourite line g45 !!!!
Then we had cake & chocs !!
Then everyone went away got changed and came back for canap├ęs and champers....
The lovely lady on the left is Emma & on the right the fab Shelley. Emma's daughter is 1 yrs old and she is my tiny flower-girl !
Then much to my total surprise a hummer Limo turned up to take us all to birmingham
Where we went to a greek restaurant, ate great food, drank, watched belly dancing & plate smashing and had a good dance.
And this is me and my crafting bestie Maria. I have the best friends in the whole world I love these ladies, and I thank them all from the bottom of my heart for giving me a special day. Hope you enjoyed a little insight into my life xxxx
