It's Been A Long Time!

...indeedily it has!   What with one thing and another, my poor old blog has been neglected but hopefully things are starting to gain some equilibrium now and I can start to get back to normal service.  Thank you for thinking of me and Grim and for you safe wishes for us.  We are safely back from holibobs - what an amazing adventure we had - and thankfully weren't caught up in the horror in Sousse.  It would be remiss of me not to mention that my heart goes out to all those who were involved in that mindless atrocity.


I have had a few things going on of late - personal stuff, health stuff... not only my health but also my AlfieCat who has become ill recently, that has been most worrying as you can imagine.  He is now on medication and, fingers crossed very tightly, seems to be responding to the treatment.  He needs to have more tests with the *whispers* V E T next week and all being well they will bring goodly news for us all.


With all that going on I haven't really had chance to catch up or to get into the Room of Stash.  The canvas I am showing you here is one I made in class at the end of May (yes, I am that far behind!) and also... is inspired by my canvas I did for Craft Stamper which hit the shelves last Friday.  It is so nice to be back in the magazine!  HERE's a linky to the Craft Stamper blog where you can find details of the new challenge and other fun stuff too.


I shall away now... my Room looks like Miss Haversham's dining room... knee deep in dust and cobwebs and looking ever so slightly neglected... I need to get tidied up and clean up and then I can get inky!  Thanks for looking.. have a grand evening.  TTFN

Back with a gorgeous creation.
I'm sending great big gentle hugs to Alfie. He probably hates this weather just like me, mind I think yours has been better than mine.
I'm counting days hehe.

Hi Hels

Good to see you back, hope health problems have gone away. Glad holiday was nice but poor Alfiecat! Hopefully this medicine has done the trick, I will keep my fingers crossed for him. I love your canvas, lovely bright blue, I noticed you stamped mr butterfly's body onto a coloured pen nib, terrific detail. Great to have you back but not too much cleaning and dusting in your craft room, you can do a bit then craft a bit, then decide whether to clean any more! Hugs, T x
