Hi all

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas Day and lots of lovely presents. Hope you didn't eat to much but then what the heck it is Christmas after all. I am in the process of trying to load a song list so you can listen while you look but I am having a small problem at the moment.

When I visit the JS forum I have noticed quite a few crafters have printer queries/problems I have a Canon and the colour ink has run out but will cost me £20 + to buy another one. So although its a beautiful printer its expensive. I have just an ordinary HP Deskjet printer that I had has a free gift so I have connected that to try. Unfortunately it doesn't have a scanner so my lovely friend Christine has one that she doesn't use and is going to send me so I will still be able to scan my cards to put them on my blog.

By being a member of the JS forum I have met so many lovely people and made some wonderful friends.....something I never thought I would ever do. That to me is the greatest Christmas present I could have wished for.

Hope to post some cards soon probably in 2009 so here's wishing you all a Happy New Year.

Love & Hugs

2nd Blog Award-Butterfly Award

Hello this is the second of three beautiful awards given to me by Beryl http://wlpandivascraft.blogspot.com. I am so glad that Beryl thinks I am worthy of such awards but they mean so much to me as they are the first I have ever received. As I said in my last posting I am a bit useless with links so I will put the blog sites down and hope that I haven't done anything wrong.

I am quite new to blogging and still learning so much but enjoying it. My fellow crafters have been wonderful visting my blog and giving me encouragement and inspiration. I have learnt so much from them this past year I could never have done so much without them.

here goes this time I have to list 10 blogs this is the rule so it must be followed.











Well these are 10 blogs that I visit regularly and I hope that the award will be accepted by all.

Blog Award

Hi this lovely award was given to me by a fellow crafter Beryl http://wlpandivascraft.blogspot.com/ who is a very talented crafter and a great inspiration to me and I believe to other crafters. I would like to thank Beryl for thinking of me when giving this award as it has made me feel quite proud. The rules are as well as telling 5 things that I am addicted to I have to pass this on to 5 fellow bloggers whose blogs are among my favourites. As I am quite new to the blogging scene my favourite list is still growing but the ones I choose I am sure will already have it. I am not very good at the links thingy so I will list the blog sites and the link to their sites I hope this is ok.

Five things I am addicted to:

a. Crafting especially rubber stamping

b. Shopping especially rubber stamps

c. Walking my dog Polo

Hi all

I have read the comments made by some of my crafting friends and I know that some of you would like to put a slideshow of your own cards on your blogs but have had trouble doing so. I spent quite a while sussing it out but have now done a 2nd one and find it quite easy so if you would like a few easy to follow steps here goes:

1. Log into Photobucket
2. Choose the album you want to make into a slide show
3. Click on 'slideshow' at the top of the tool bar
4. You will see 3 steps to follow a) choose the cards from your album that you would like to
appear in your slideshow once you have done this they should
appear in the middle of the screen.
b) step 2 go to the right of the screen and click on the slideshow
display that you like if you change your mind just click on
another one until you find the one you like best.
c) click save slideshow and put in a title
5. The next step is to click on 'share' this will open a screen you will need to enter your
e-mail address and password then click on the blogger sign on the left hand side of the screen
This should then show a link to your own blogger site.
6. Click share and Photobucket should bring up a message 'posted to blog ok' with a big green

I hope you can follow these steps but if you still have a problem just leave a comment where you have gone wrong and I will get back to you asap.

If I find that I have missed anything I will edit this post asap.

Once again I wish all my crafting friends and visitors a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Dec 08 Cards


Well I have managed to scan in some cards and make another slide show. The cards are all 8"x8" and I made them as a Christmas present for my mum. I have stamped and watercoloured all of them also using some embellishments. I have a beautiful faux leather red box which I have put them in along with the envelopes and I will be tying a big red bow on. As I rarely go out and money is a bit scarce I decided to make a present for mum and I think she will like it. Many thanks for looking and thanks to all for the comments and visiting my blog.

Merry Christmas to all

Hi December 14th

Hi everyone

Just managed to suss out how to put a slideshow on my new blog, I hope you like it. It has taken me quite a while but worth it ....I think. It is a selection of cards that I have shown over the last several months the reason being I haven't been updating my photobucket account so I have used a selection of what I had. I am determined to scan some new cards in and update the slideshow on a regular basis.

I am sorry for not posting but I have not been well and could not get motivated to post. I am sure people will get fed up with me as I feel I am forever saying I am not well or I am having a bout of my depression again. I do so want to say I feel great......

I have been viewing the JS forum on a daily basis to keep up to date with what is happening ad have been so impressed with the cards that are being created, they are all so beautiful.

One of my dear friends from the forum has just created a blog and I am sure will soon have a whole host of followers. Christine's new blog is in my blog links, ladylace, visit and have a look.

Well I will now leave you to Father Christmas and if I don't manage to post again before the day I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Well I have started to change and personalise this blog to my liking and I love it, the versatility of the blogger is much more exciting than my other blog which is http;//coldwaters.wordpress.com if you would like to visit. I have become used to my old blog the layout etc but I have a lot to explore on this system. Please be patient with me while I continue to have a play. I have added my first picture just as a 'test' run. Hopefully I can add my slide show later.

Hello 16th November

Hi today is my mums 89th birthday and I hope it will be a great day for her. She will be having a party next Saturday as not all the family are here this week. We have a big clan and I think there will be at least 36 going for a meal and that still won't be all of us. I know mum will love it but unfortunately I will be one of the ones that will not be there.

Some of you may have seen my other blog on wordpress but I decided to give blogger a go and if I like it I will probably keep this one as my main one.

I will be posting some cards that I have recently made so please watch this space.
