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 attended the Scrapbook Bloggers weekend in Coalport, Shropshire (see main picture). I have met up with some lovely talented women and I am so inspired at the moment.. Thus I am going to use this spare time of mine to the best of my crafting/scrapping abilities whilst I'm in the mood. On both occassions I have scrapped and made cards as well as made friends. I'll be posting my layouts in the coming weeks to show you
Anyway I'll end now. Good evening from Pickle Land
Hope to speak to you very soon
Love Lesley xx
