Few and far between

My scrapping room has now become the CRAFT room.  I have my overlocker, sewing machine, paints, quilts, basket of wool plus my scrapping in here now and I am ever so overwhelmed with it all.  No wonder I can't sleep at night time.  I have been trying to get 9 large cushion covers made to put on my day bed, along with a few requests for baby quilts too.  So as much as I love my scrapping, Im not finding that I have as much time to do it as I want.  But I was in my element for the last two nights putting one together.  This is what I did.  I have used Crate Paper - Random Collections, Rima Annalee Collectiion, Prima Alphabet stickers which are really cool.  They feel like canvas.  And my gorgeous cluster is thanks to my2angels.  I have used lots of Tracys wee stash of flowers and a chipboard flourish which I have inked up using Silver ink.  Of course a Martha Stewart punch... my ever so favourite punches.  The cute as bird up on the top left hand side is front the House of Three paper.
Here is a close up of the journalling which I so believe in.  My life is not what I thought it would be 14 years ago.  I have been through so much, moved 8 times in the past 10 years, made a mile of friends through scrapbooking, got my second child after 12 years of being incapable of falling pregnant..... so yep, you just have to go with life and take what it hands out.

Love to all you girls out there who read my blog.  I wish I knew who you all were as I would love to meet sooo many of you.
Take care and Happy New Year to us all
