Presents for Friends

I've had the house to myself this afternoon as AJ has been playing cricket, so I have used the time to make some presents for some of my friends.
It is my friend Jo's birthday at the end of the September, so I have made her a little something using a frame (bought from Home Sense - great shop), and an owl stamp from the June Bug range from Basic Grey. I think this is quite simple yet cute, and I'm planning on finding more small frames and doing something similar for some of my other friends- either for their birthdays or Christmas. I'm not being tight, but I thought I would start making some presents that are personal and made with love by me. Below is Jo's present

I've also made a desktop calender for my friend Chris for her birthday in November. I have made it so it can be used every year and have left some sides empty so she can add her own photos to it. I've used a variety of papers- from my monthly scrapbook box from Sarahs Cards Limited of which we both subscribe to, plus added a few other embellishments found along the way. I hope she likes it. Below are some images of Chris's present. Just in case Chris views this blog, I'll only show you snippets.

Happy Birthday to Me

Its my Birthday.  I am 42 years old.  Wow, how did that happen?????? Is still feel like I'm 21

A fresh start

That is a huge statement for me to share and also a very long time coming.

The past few years have been really tough.  Life seemed to have totally gone off track.  My life felt off kilter and to a point not my own.  I suffered deeply with depression, had a crappy job, my relationship with my husband was at times very strained and I had become very insular and within myself.  Life felt hard and I suffered greatly.

I got a new job, and for a few months I hated it.  It didn't float my boat so to speak.  I thought I could do better.  I felt like I had taken a huge step backwards career wise, I was unhappy and felt broken.  But I suddenly had an AHA moment.  I realised that I could and should change my attitude towards it.  I didn't want to look for a new job as it had taken a while to find this one and I hated filling in application forms and going to interviews.  I didn't want to find a job where I would…

I'm back

It's been far too long.  But I'm back. Just checking in at the moment, but I'm going to start visiting again.  New attitude, new me, excited for the new journey I'm on.  Watch this space.
