Getting back into the swing of things








Firstly can I thank all that participated in yesterdays Colour Blog Hop. I am finding these monthly challenges really fun. I have seen all the participants entries and they are all fab. I am, however, having problems with adding comments. So if you haven't received a comment from me, I'm sorry and I'm hoping to sort the problem out if I can. I think it may have to do with changing my e-mail address on Goggle and it not recognising it properly.



Secondly, after my wonderful holiday ( some photos to follow later) I am feeling refreshed and in a more creative frame of mind. I have so many projects I want to do and complete, and I have so many ideas. I just need to get myself organised abit more and then allow myself more time to create. I love this hobby of mine so I should dedicate all I can to it.




I thought I would show you the card I made for a friend who is going to give it to her aunt for her birthday. The image is a Lili of the Valley stamp (I am starting a little collection of the LOTV stamps of late) which I can't remember the name of at the moment coloured in with Pro-Markers. I have used my Martha Stewart butterfly stamp that my brother R kindly got me for my recent birthday and the lettering is American Crafts thickers.




I hope you like. I'm trying to build up my card making confidence and this card is the first card I have been commissioned to make. Abit scary, but my friend loved it.




Anyway, hopefully I will be back later to show you some photos from my holiday once I have decided from the very many I have are the best ones to highlight for you.




Have a good day and I will speak to you very soon




Love Lesley xx

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

I am currently at ease with myself and the way my life is at present.

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…

Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas
