Hey! Back in blogland.

I've had 6 months off from blogland, actually some might say 6 months off from more than that, but it's time for me to get back into it. So I've re-jigged my blog and will be posting twice a week photos of my makes aswell as the goings on in my barmy life.

Snow Day!

Wow! How fab has the snow been today? It looks so peaceful and calm when it's snowed but it causes so much havoc. There was no school for Faye today and no after school club for Leah so I finished early to collect her from school. We got changed straight away and took the dog and the sledge to the wood for an hour.

I gave Leah lessons on building a snowman (rolling big snowballs) and made a head that big that i couldn't lift it on top of his bloody body!
I bet there are huge snowballs left instreets all over the place, you know like that artist (Andy somebody). The kids in our street have done it. Not sure if it was in the name of art though...

I made this card just before Chrsitmas for my lovely friend Linz' birthday. Let me know if you want a supply list.

Hope your snow day was as good as mine.

Here are my babes.....

.....and the reasons I get distracted from crafting!

These were taken in Whitby during the Chrsitmas break.

This is Spence on one of our trots around Fryston Wood.

These are some tags I've made to put in the Folksy shop I haven't set up yet.

Do you know what? I've really been fancying doing some sewing just lately. I bought the 4th issue of Sew Hip today and NEED to buy vintage fabrics. I'm going to trawl the charity shops in Pontefract tomorrow and car boot on Sunday. I've got ideas to stamp on Calico but haven't got any and need to research what ink I can stamp on fabric with. do you know you can make a tote bag out of a pillowcase? How fab is that? I NEED to make one. Of course I'll post the results. My only worry is that my sewing machine chews up the thread underneath the fabric which really tests my patience. Iv'e asked Ed to service said sewing machine but don't think he's interested.

Anyway enjoy your weekend lovelies.
