a new blog awaits you ...

... although it looks and sounds exactly like this one (i've even copied my old posts across).  You can now find me at

hope to see you soon

more phone problems

So I'm thinking I might have to start a new blog and stop this one to get the app working on my phone. All the problems are really boring so I won't go into them but at the moment this seems to be the only thing I can do.  I'll keep you posted x

a few hours later ...

... and the positivity lasted!  Don't know what I did differently today, but the things I did on my website actually worked!! Enthusiastic use of exclamation marks I know but after yesterday's debacle I feel they are wholly deserved.  I'm still not ready to share the website yet but give it another few days (or weeks) and I might just be there. 

I'm going to peel myself off the computer now,  and go and have some lunch before I pack my order up. 

Happy days. 

A good start to the day

I logged on to my e-mail this morning to find that I'd had an order on and I've just spend a happy and productive 30 mins uploading my products to my gallery pages - definitely a good start to the day. 

Now I've just got to keep that positivity going while I log on to mr site - wish me luck x

what a frustrating day!

I spent most of today trying to get my head round mr site and get my website up and running ... and failed miserably! After several hours I managed to get a homepage set up so ticked that off my list and then set about trying to create a gallery ... and gave up when I couldn't manage to make it appear anything like I wanted it to... grrr! Several hours later, I logged on to my blog and decided to try the new interface ... I love it! In half an hour, I've updated my profile and created a gallery page for my cushions. I think I might have to set up pages for wonkies and skwonkies too - maybe I'm not technically illiterate after all!!

that didn't quite work out

Wednesday was meant to be my first crafty day of the new year (as I stated in my previous post) but that didn't quite work out. I ended up spending the day doing, well, lots of other little things that I can't even remember now, and as for yesterday, that seemed to disappear too, although I did make an inspiration wall and work on my twisted butterflies for a bit so I suppose that counts - doesn't it?

But today, today is the day when I have finally sat down and got stuck into mod podge. I'd never heard of the stuff, but at the end of last year, I found a really nice tutorial on pinterest for making 3D lace hearts which really appealed. So out I went and bought all the things I'd need (thankyou Hobbycraft and ebay as ever) ... and then wonkies took over my world and everything else got shelved ... until now... here goes ...

(if I ever manage to work my blogger app on my phone properly I'll post a pic)

What shall I do today?

I'm trying hard to get in the mood for crafting but things keep getting in the way ... all the little jobs that need doing post christmas that I can only do now the kids are back at school.  So far, the house has been de-christmased, the beds have been changed and I'm on my third load of washing (such a glamourous life I lead) but there's still lots of little things niggling at me (like making the top of the low unit in the lounge a place for adult things before the children fill it with all the minutiae of their lives)!

So that's decided ... today is the day for all those jobs and tomorrow is the first crafty day of 2012.  I'll keep you posted with how I get on.
