More Listings

Blimey I really did not know how many stamps I had until I started to put them on ebay, it is so sad to have to say goodbye to them but I am sure they will go to better homes where they are used and loved :)

I have lots more on my ebay page here and still have heaps to do but it is such headache, my tip to anyone who is starting out ..... keep all of your stamp names, I have had to go though so many webpages and still cannot find half of them :(

If you do see anything you want and it does not have any bids just send me an email :)

Right better get back to seeing what else I have to put on..... lovely ribbons and some more stampin up bits and bobs are being photo'd next

Has to be done

Well it has been way too long again since I have posted and I have still not made any cards so I have decided it is a good time to downscale my craft items and sell some things on eBay to give me a bit of space back.

I will be keeping my blog open and hope to be back with something creative soon, but I hope you are all well and still enjoying your crafting :)

If you fancy a bargain all of my auctions start at 99p, there will be more added on a daily basis for week or so

Here is the link to my eBay page if you fancy a look and if you have any questions just let me know

Here goes!!

Well I have started….I have got some boxes out and started unpacking as you can see from the pictures below. It does not seem like a lot on the pics but it sure does when you start unpacking it all. I have got some cupboards down from the loft and luckily Dave has let me have them in the conservatory so as soon as it is all organised then I can make a start.

I have decided I will not be buying anything new as I am shocked at how much stuff I have got and not even realised it, so I will not be coerced or bullied by myself into buying anything new…..yeah right!!! lol

OMG how time flies

I cannot believe it has been nearly a year since my last post, it is mad how quickly that has gone.

I have been keeping up on everyone's blogs and have been inspired to have a look at getting my crafty bits back out of the boxes and get back crafting again woohoo :)

As much as work took over I think another problem was I was so loyal to PM's that I lost the whole enjoyment of making what I wanted. I felt I had to use PM's on everything I made and I also felt guilty for not leaving comments for everyone and not having comments myself. So I am not going to worry any more, this blog is for me and I will appreciate every comment that comes and if none come then so be it :)

Right lets get unpacking then, I have lots of boxes and no where to put it all....this should be fun :)

See you all soon
