Welcome to Adventures in Pickle Land

Hi. My name is Lesley and this is my very first blog page on Adventures in Pickle Land.
I am a scrapbooker, cardmaker and now novice blogger, and after much encouragement from my wonderful husband AJ, have taken the plunge to share my adventures in craft and in life in general (not that I think it is that interesting - ha ha).
I am just building up my confidence to show some of my scrapbook pages and cards (once I can work out how to download them from my camera onto my laptop) and hope that other people may enjoy them too (and not just AJ- I'm sure he says they a great just to keep me happy).

I wouldn't say I have any particular style at the moment as I'm fairly new to scrapbooking, but I am enjoying myself all the same and am always inspired by magazines, other blogs and everyday life.

I am currently scrapping a wedding album - AJ and I got married in the beautiful Lake District on a very wet day in September 2009 and hoping to show some pages soon. Plus I've got our honeymoon to DisneyWorld to scrap, plus my beautiful cats Kiwi and Willow and much more too.
So much to do and not enough hours in the day!!!

Good evening from Pickle Land and hope to speak soon


NB : If you are wondering why Pickle Land, one of my pet names for AJ is Mr Pickle, hence I'm Mrs Pickle, the cats are the Ickle Pickles and we live in Pickleland - Sad I know, but fun all the same.

November round up- Scrapbooking retreats ahoy!!

November has been a strange yet good month. I have been made redundant from my job in local government (my last day at work was Friday 25th - official day of leaving is tomorrow 30th). And though I'm worried about finding another job, I'm definitely looking forward to having some free time (whilst looking for another job) and doing the many things on my list of things to do - like sort out my craft room, Christmas shopping, JYC 2011, a good clear out and doing a little cooking/baking.

Leading up to last Friday was a mix of emotions and though I am not sad to leave my place of work (it feels the right time to leave), I am sad not to be working with some people. But you can not stay in a place just for the people, and I've got to do the right thing for me for once.

However, November has been a really good month on the craft front. I firstly attended the Sarah's Cards Retreat in Warrington (see picture below with two lovely ladies Mandy and Mell) and then this weekend I att…
