Hello 2015

Welcome to 2015! Yes, here I am again trying to get this blog thing going properly. Last year was a bit of a fizzer in blog terms. I couldn’t even reliably post a single monthly post of pics so how on earth I figured I’d handle a 10 week long project is totally beyond me! […]

The Xmas Xclutter Challenge

I have bad news if you’re a crafter, and good news if you’re a kid. Christmas is coming up, in fact it’s 80 days until the big day. As I look around me I can see an awful lot of stuff. Kids stuff, my stuff, his stuff. Stuff everywhere. And to think that it was […]

They generally included a birthday celebration for me, heaps of presents (which Marcus and I got to hand out) and a magical gingerbread house. I don’t remember ever eating the gingerbread house, but I […]

Memory Monday – Christmas Past

I keep a lot of the cards that I receive. They take up a lot of space, but I think it’s space that’s worth it as each is a treasured memory to me. In my Dublin apartment we had wardroes with opening doors – the backs of these were plastered with cards so that every […]
