WELCOME to my little arty world! Trying to make art is a huge part of my life ... love nothing more than messing around with inks and sprays and generally making a mess!

Well, here it is, Merry Christmas, everybody's having fun!  Or something like that!!!!

Having fun?  What isn't crafted now will be finished just as soon as I can and apologies have already been sent to the late recipients of the little cross-stitched tree decorations I traditionally send out.  They will still be sent out ... just late!  And yeah, am beating myself up about it but only need to watch the news or think about family and friends who are sick right now to fully realise a few late Christmas gifts isn't the end of the world.

Will pop back later and edit this adding photo's but for now the cable thingy I need to hook up my mobile is buried somewhere under all the wrapped parcels so it should reveal itself as we sort them out for delivery sending to Father Christmas.

Just had to blog, albeit briefly, this Christmas Eve morning to wish all my wonderful crafty friends and all you WOYWW'ers out there a truly peaceful and magical and special Christmas.

WOYWW is where we can visit fellow crafters all over the world and all thanks to the beautiful lady whom is Julia over at The Stamping Ground and she can explain it all so much better than me!  


  1. Glad you've stopped beating yourself up about finishing things - think we all do that though.. Hope you find the cable cos I'd love to see the pics. Happy Christmas, hope to see you again next year at the WOYWW crop. Helen #5

  2. Ha, we were on the same wavelength! I started my blog with the same Slade classic today!!
    Thanks for all your fab support and lovely comments this year :-) may it continue in 2015....
    Hugs, LLJ 23 xx

  3. Crafting is for fun - don't put too much pressure on yourself - I'm actively trying to avoid obligations when it comes to crafting. I buy all my Christmas cards because I don't enjoy making them. There's no rule that says you have to make all your own cards and gifts when you're a crafter. Have a very merry Christmas and a Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #24

  4. I reached the stage of what's done is done and what's not done remains not done last weekend. We went 'last time' shopping and I realised I hadn't checked to make sure that the children all had the same number of parcels!!! oooer!
    This is one time to play the 'old card' - what do you expect from an old lady!!! he! he! he!
    Have a good Christmas

  5. Hi Debbie, A Happy Christmas to you and Phil. Funny to think that this time last year I hadn't even met you, and now you are one of my bestest buddies! Thank you so much for all the love and support you've given me this year, and watching your giant milestones this year has been a delight. Happy Christmas Eve WOYWW, Love from us both, Shaz #11 xxxx

  6. If I did retrospectives, meeting you this year would get a mention...what a joy you are to know....and what a breakthrough year for you that you've let me share. Thank you and GO YOUR, you're amazing. So is that man of yours.
    Happy Christmas...see you soon. Xx

  7. Late Christmas presents make the fun of Christmas last longer, right? So it is a good thing!
    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  8. Hope you've managed to enjoy a peaceful Christmas, despite some last minute activity. Hugs, Chris # 10

  9. Don't worry about not having finished the cards... Relax! Most people wouldn't mind, and if they do, you should re-think your relationship, don't you think?
    Hope you had a very lovely Christmas,

  10. I do hope you and yours had a lovely time over the last few days. We sure did! I'm glad you posted, I'm only popping in now despite posting on time! Take care. Zo xx 32
