Grateful for my MUM, for the strength I inherited from her, it is sad to realise that this strong, amazing woman will have been missing from my life for a year at the end of this week. While her family live on she will never truely be gone, she is always in our thoughts and in our hearts. So dearly missed.
The second LO is of my gorgeous daughter Kate, what an amazing young woman she is turning into. She shines and brightens my life daily, I am so very grateful that she is mine.
I have been wanting to make cards to raise money for Breast Cancer Research, however I dont always have the energy, well tonight I decided to make a start and this is the first card I've made, quite pleased with it so I will probably do some more like it in different colours. So I know it is only one card so far, but as they say " A journey of 1000 miles begins with one step" So hopefully this will be the first of many.
I have had not done a lot of crafting lately, but I have recently made myself an organiser for 2009 and have already got a lot of projects in it that I am hoping to complete this year. So hopefully I will be adding new stuff to my blog on a - I will say weekly basis as I think daily may be to much of a stretch. Here are some LOs I did for a "Grateful for" album I am working on, some of th eLO's were based on classes from the latest Cyber Crop on UKS.
Hi my name is Anne I am 50 years old. After beating Breast Cancer in 2008, I was diagnosed with Secondary Breast Cancer in April of this year. I am currently undergoing weekly chemo and the things you see on this blog are my way of switching off and staying sane. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, friend and many things to many people. I love to craft and have recently taken up quilting. I also love scrapbooking, cardmaking, knitting, cross stitch and .....the list goes on and on hehehe
This blog has been created to allow me to show the handmade cards I make and also to show my scrapbook pages. Most of my handmade cards are decoupage, which I love. My layouts are purely personal, they feature my friends and family, they are produced for my childrens albums and that is where they will ultimately end up.
