It's my blog anniversary

I can't believe it has been one year today since I set up Adventures in Pickle Land.

I've loved writing this little blog of mine and sharing with you a little of my life this last year.

I've learnt so much and I am still learning.

I've loved reading the comments I have received and have taken much confidence and inspiration from them.

So to my readers who ever you may be- thank you so much for being part of my scrapbooking and blog journey. I may not be the best blogger/scrapbooker/photographer in the world, but I'm really enjoying this great hobby and being part of a fantastic community.

I hope to continue with this blog of mine and I'm hoping to blog abit more regularly, as I think after a year I have had my period of crawling and is now time to take bigger and better steps.

There are a couple of people who I would like to express special thanks to.

To my most excellent friend Chris- you inspire me everyday with your fantastic cards, scrapbook layouts and artwork, and by being a fantastic friend who encourages me in my scrapbooking and letting me borrow her stamps and various other products.

And to my wonderful husband AJ, who inspires many a layout, encourages me and gives me so much confidence to carry on. And also for putting up with a dining room, living room and spare room crammed full of scrapbook goodies. I love you Mr Pickle xx

I dedicate this post to Peter (AJ's step Grandad) who sadly lost his bravely fought battle with cancer last night, and to his wife Edie who herself is in hospital after suffering a stroke and has lost her husband of nearly 64 years. Thinking of you both with love xx

Good evening from Pickle Land

Hope to speak to you very soon

Love Lesley

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…
