This Christmas will be our 11th in this house, these last 10yrs have gone so quick and lots of things have changed too. We are both now out of work & both crippled with arthritis - George with Osteo & me with Rheumatoid and PsA + Fibromyalgia, I have also been diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes and Glaucoma/Ocular Hyper Tension. Both 10yrs older !!! LOL. We have lost 2 dogs and 2 cats but we have also gained another 2 dogs, I have lost 5stone, but then gained one (due to meds), gained a lot of grey hair that has been dyed blonde several times since. George has turned 60 + and me 50+. I met my niece & nephew for the first time when my Brother & his family came to visit, from NZ, back in 2008. And my mother has overcome Cancer.
Of course during these last 10 yrs I also took up a hobby that I found I was quite good at - making Handmade cards. I used to do Wedding Invitations too but tbh found it all a bit too stressful. I also dabble in other crafts too. It was actually back in 2007 that I started making cards - over 8yrs ago now, when I couldn't find a birthday card for my nephew and started looking on the web. I came across handmade cards and thought to myself "I can do that" and the rest, as they say, is history.
So here are are the cards that I managed to get done this week & as usual all the images are coloured with Copics and all my stash comes from Cardz n Scrapz.
Also baked some scones this week, just like these below, except twice as many - didn't last twice as long though LOL;
Of course little Rosie has been keeping us all on our toes (including poor Robbie) but she is just the most adorable & funny little pup and we both just love the bones of her !!!
And finally one of me with my new do !!! My old hairdresser recently moved to another town and a part from the fact I wouldn't be able to park near enough to the salon, I really couldn't be doing with driving that far to get my hair done. So after 9yrs with Cathy it was time to find another and find another I did and she is brilliant !!! Hair Dynamics in Killenaule are now my go to hairdressers!
Thank you for stopping by.
