It was a dark and stormy night..................

Was it ever !!!! Storm force 10 winds and torrential rain have been hitting the Island overnight and this morning. So, up I get at 7.30, coffee on, computer on, just sat down to sort out my farm (yeah another farmville addict lol) when I heard the drip, drip, drip of water !! Oh no, the rain had managed to get in through the dormer roof and my lovely canvas which had been sitting drying over night was awash !! So buckets and bowls at the ready, I set about trying to salvage the's not too bad, could have been much worse, but will need to re-do the background and some of the paper embellies. Was gonna post piccies of it today, but will have to re-hash it first.

I know I haven't been around for a little while, for a start we are still manically busy which is good, but I have also been having major problems with blogger, the few times I did manage to get a post started, it just wouldn't upload ??? I also cannot get on other blogs, everytime I try and look at one, my computer just does a complete freeze........I have been trying to have a look at everyones lovely work honest !!

Well, the week started off quite challenging, when amid all the wind and rain, Everest arrived to fit the new windows !!! Let's just say it was a bit breezy, but nearly all done now, they are back tomorrow morning (weather permitting) to do my craft room and the study which I am so not looking forward to....having to shift everything out or cover it up !!! I suppose it will be worth it in the end.

A few good things to look forward to in the next week or so..........October Afternoon VERY MERRY has shipped !!!!! YAY !!! At last !!! The poor folks were all struck down with Swine Flu, so were very short staffed and that held everything up even more - hope they are all feeling better now.
The second good thing ........a couple of my favourite stamp ranges are coming to the Craft Emporium..........hmmmm should I say which ones yet ???? Maybe I'll let it be a suprise LOL !! The first range has already shipped, so not much longer to wait and the second one will hopefully follow shortly after.

Well, I really hope this storm ends soon, my daughter and all her friends are coming over from Uni for the weekend - feel sorry for them - 4 1/2 hours on the ferry across the Irish sea in this weather YUK !! Steph is well used to the stormy seas by now, but her pals are gonna get a bit of a shock !! Let's hope it dies down a bit.

I will leave you with a few random pics of stuff done over the last couple of weeks..........

.........and a couple of quickie cards with the new Blonde Moments Christmas Papers "All I Want For Christmas"

  2. lol that made me laugh you saying 'there wasnt too much damage, could have been worse' then went onto list what it had done to your canvas not the house lol...only a crafter would have a priority report over artwork than the building lol

    ooooooo new ranges....hmmmm...excellent!

    Now this yellow colour on your artwork is gorgeous. Think I might have to just go and take a look :0)

    My fave of your cards is the first. The balance is perfect.

Having successfully ran an online craft shop for many years, the time had come to take it easy and find more time to create and play. Of course I couldn't leave it there and signed up as a Independent Stampin' Up demonstrator. A fabulous range of high quality products and a brand new craft room, what a great combination !
