About 6 years after hubbie and i married all his family came over from England for a 6 week visit,we had mum,dad, his bother and wife and there 2 girls,all of my family were living on farms or famlets, this saying "meet the outlaws become a bit of a joke.We had a great time and it was really great to have every one together. Thanks for popping by to visit.

Sassafras new papers

I Love the colours in this new range,so warm and inviting,I always seem to cut something out
as an embellishment lol.
These Photos bring back lots of very happy memories,of to do a few more of these well I'm inspired.


I couldn't scan this it was to chunky, I have a friend i meet on the Internet about 7 years ago,
we keep in touch all the time by e-mail and now and then by phone,and send each other little bits and pieces as she is a card maker.Recently she found out she had breast cancer and had surgery last week,I promised to send her a card every week well she is recovering,Even though we have never meet face to face we are the best of friends,I wish i could just go over there (Netherlands) and give her a hug and tell her every thing will be ok.I will have to get more inventive with my card making maybe something light hearted to make her smile.

This is SBBD April sketch challenge, and might i say it made me think lol, If you haven't already noticed my son is a real outdoors person and fishing is his first passion, the name "CRAYVING"
is what he has named his boat, he designed it himself,it was neat to see that side of him come out.
thanks for taking the time to look.

"Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance."

NZ Dare # 42

This is a wonderful childhood memory i have, the journaling reads: "Mum made jams and pickles,we used to go and pick your own strawberries,apples and plums etc, I think we ate as
many as we collected": She also blanched and froze vegetables like corn and beans but that wasn't as much fun because we couldn't eat it as we picked lol. Thanks for looking
