Christmas Mojo ......

Is in full swing. Due to our baby arriving mid December I decided last month to make a start on my christmas cards, unfortunately im not an organised person usually and I have totally surprised and surpassed myself cos I actually have 7 Christmas cards done, A5 cards!!! Im really enjoying doing them though when normally each year it feels like a chore, but the xmas mojo is in full swing and im flying through them.

Of course I have over 40 to make! lol! but ill get there and plan to have them all done by the end of October. Ive started a littel production line and its working so I shoudl reach my goal. Also plan to have all the christmas presents bought by then too. :) I will take photos of the cards i have already made and try and post them up, think i have the hang of it now.

I also made a September swap card today for a forum im part of the theme was to use as many cuttlebug folders as you could. Unfortunately i dont have many folders (but plan on changing that ;)) so i worked with what i had and was thrilled with the results. Will also take a pic and post it up later.

Off now to enjoy my sunday dinner.

some cards from me

The joys of pregnancy......

you know pregnancy is great, it really is. once you get over the initial sickness and tiredness and the fact that your body is expanding whether you like it or not :). well something new happened me yesterday....something my friend told me when she was on her 1st pregnancy and i nearly died laughing...oh yes thought it was hilarious i did. Until happened me yesterday!

I was out doing the grocery shopping standing in one of the aisles and sneezed, panic ensued cos i nearly wet meself! so i guess its time to root out the tenas! ;) lol. Had to text my friend to tell her and she nearly died laughing herself as did my OH when i told him. Thankfully i was in the aisle on my own so nobody could see the horror on my face! lol. Have also been told that from here on in its constant trips to the loo.....the joy! lol. Anyway enough of that potty talk. Weather is miserable, it doesnt know what it wants to do, sat here watching the sun shining and then an unmerciful rain shower followed.

Im trying to figure out how to upload pics on here, its so long since i blogged i cant remember and i want to post up some pics of cards i have been doing while i was missing. Hopefully i will get my head around it.

Its been awhile.....

so much for making more time for blog hopping, lots has happened since my last post. little did i know that when i posted that life was gonna change. Im now 29 weeks pregnant lol! so there hasnt been much time for blogging, but im still fitting in the me time and the craftin so 2 out of 3 aint bad!

our little bundle of joy is due on 10th december. I'm hoping he/she is gonna be punctual and arrive about then, id like to be home for xmas and settled. The pregnancy is going well and sometimes i think its an irish dancer i have inside me, it never stops...but thats a good sign! :). I have started my xmas cards and set up a little production line for myself, so i have stamped images in 1 bag, paper in another, card in another and embellies in another, im still adding to it as i have loads of cards to do and i plan on having them all done by the end of october. My xmas shopping has started too and that should be done by end of october aswell...I know i have never been so organised, pregnancy is great. well the fact that i am due 2 weeks before xmas doesnt give me much time for shopping and i aint traipsing about the busy streets with a big bump on me so im getting it all done now.

I have made loads of cards over the past few months, lots of wedding cards that i will try and upload here, if i can remember how to. lol. right thats about it for now.

talk soon.
