It's working ....

I have to say, I set this blog up to help me get more creative, and I have to say it's working.  Believe me, I'm not knocking it that's for sure - I think I've probably scrapped more in the past week than I did for most of last year!  Long may it continue, that's what I say.  

Anyway, I did an entry for the house challenge over on UKS - which again, is so not like me.  I never enter any of the challenges, but couldn't resist.  Basically it's going to be a year on a theme, "about you" - And January, was about the goals and changes you want to make - of course mine, is create more, so as a thank my new blog LOL ... I did this layout :)

Cake anyone?

Oh I so love my Cricut .... I've been playing this afternoon with the Tags, Bags and More cartridge, that Simon got me for Christmas.  I needed to make a box or bag for my Mum in Laws birthday present - so there I was happily playing and cutting out - then realised the first bag was too small.  Oh well, it's not really hardship is it, so back to the drawing board - and out came this cake box :)  A few stamps and of course some bling - and now mum in law has a nice little box with some sweet tabacco, from the old sweet shop. 

I may well need to seal the box, as I could see Simon taking a little taster out of it!

A New Passion

Oh dear .... something new to try! Ok, so I couldn't resist getting this magazine when I saw it advertised on tv the other night.  Well, lets see if I ever do complete at least one square of this throw.  It does look good though, so who knows maybe I'll learn to crochet yet.

One of my Favourite Shops

What could be better at the start of my blog than a visit to my favourite place. I just love this shop to bits ... it's full of all things pretty. From homeware, giftswares, clothes, bags and one of the best restaurants for good home cooked food.  If you're ever in Cranleigh, One Forty is a must.

Of course, while I was there,a sale was on ... and really it would have been rude not to buy anything, so a gorgeous grey handbag has found its way home with me.
