Sorry for disappearing... things have been busy and stressful round here at the moment... got a lot on my mind but heyho!
As I mentioned in a previous post we have found Keira a new home... she's settling in nicely albeit a few mishaps but hopefully they will subside. Do you remember me mentioning this little lady below...

Well... she has no chip so has been booked to get one and will be joining our little family... she is officially named Snowy.

Missy in the picture above has had me very worried as she's not been well... all last weekend she did nothing but sleep, no eating, drinking... just sleep... Monday she seemed to perk up a bit and started eating, only a little but alas eating and drinking a little, but she still was out of sorts... Wednesday she started making clicking sounds with her tongue and looked as if she was struggling to swallow so I rang the vet who gave me an appointment for 4pm. I took both Missy & Snowy (as she'd become a little too sleepy) to get them checked and it seems Missy may have picked up a Virus that she kindly shared with Snowy... a shot of anti-biotics for both and an extra strong painkiller for Missy as she has a blister on her tongue... a course of anti-biotics to give them at home for the next week too... and boy are they loving that as i'm crushing the tablets up and mixing it with Tuna twice a day... and of course Fubar has to have his share of the Tuna without medicine.
Today they seem to have perked up and are back to chasing each other around the house.

On the crafting side of things there hasn't been as much as i'd like... my mind just hasn't been on it and what I have created I can't share at the moment as they are for swaps or Christmas gifts... although I can share one after Sunday as i'm going to Peterborough with the lovely Monica for a training event where we will be holding a swap using items from the New Catalogue.
I promise I will try and get some New Catalogue inspiration on here as soon as possible but in the meantime if you'd like to place an order then please feel free to contact me via the email address under the catalogue to the right in my sidebar :)

Sir Norman Wisdom...

One of my most favourite ever actor/comedian - Sir Norman Wisdom has died at the age of 95.

I remember sitting watching Norman Wisdom films when I was little.....and still watch them now as I have the 12 dvd boxset!! Just loved his humour.
RIP xx

Stampin' Up Catalogue 2010-2011...


The much awaited and anticipated Catalogue Launch is finally HERE.  If you haven't got a hard copy yet you can now finally have a look at the online one and start making your wish list.

Then GET IN TOUCH WITH ME !!  It is such a fabulous Book, I adore so much of this catalogue I don’t even know where to begin.

CLEAR MOUNT Stamps? YIPEEEEE for those of you with space saving issues these will be a God send,  also the lower prices means you can BUY so much more. 

I love the choice they are so easy to use and they stamp just as beautiful. I personally don't get on with wood mount so am loving the New Clear Mount. 

PUNCHES- WOW 14 new ones all in the new design (see current Bird Punch design)

 LOVE< LOVE My fave thing in this catalogue is the COLOUR COACH page 81. 
OMG this wonderful tool is a great resource to have on hand, and any crafter should have one. This will help you no end putting together successful colour schemes effortlessly. I am quite good on my own with colour but not this good!  I have used mine ever since I got it, it makes life so easy. 
The way it works -  well it cleverly displays the whole core colours plus the 5 NEW In Colours, and on the back you have at least 2 suggested combinations for each one of those colours so TONS of different and exciting combos, is truly fabulous, I cannot wait to show you some wonderful fresh colour combinations inspired by this lovely little book.

Talk about the NEW COLOURS....WOW!!! Wonderful new and exciting colours all crying to be used first, I was so upset with SU for retiring so many of my fave colours and now after seeing them all I am so excited I absolutely LOVE them !!!  
I now fully realize that we needed a renovation I just didn’t know it at the time *smile*.

Of course there are far too many new products in this book I could mention but I won’t, because I want you to have another look and another one , and I promise you that with each look you will discover new treasures. 

I am just hoping your bank manager is an understanding one as your wish list grows and grows.  

And if your list is BIG, then maybe you would like to consider one of my Virtual Clubs starting at the end of October, they are a great way for you to collect the desired items over a period of time and BLOW THE BUDGET in the month you are the hostess and receive all the freebies associated with that order. To find out more about the clubs, then get in touch at to reserve your place.
I'll be back in the next day or two with details of Paper, Ribbon, Marker & New In Colour shares that I have in mind.
Until then I hope enjoy browsing the all new catalogue.
