About Me

Married to my soulmate with 2 beautiful girls,and our English Springer Spaniel, Suki. Living a country life in Cambridgeshire, whilst baking, gardening, and photographing our daily lifes, where they find a place on my scrapbook pages.

My little place on the web

This blog is just that, my little place on the web.You will find my daily (or not so daily, hehe)life, my love for my new vegetable garden, baking, photography and my scrapbooking!

My Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is a way of life for me now.It has been for over 4 years. I love journaling, taking photos of my family and love colour and texture, these are all part of my everyday life and scrapbooking.

I am angry

blogged by me domestic goddess On 9/11/2006 09:33:00 AM
with life in general,
with this small community of scrappers,
with my 70 hour week,
with my weight,
with family
with colleagues/friends that you trusted and realise only have their own interests at heart
with the loss of innocent life's 5 years ago today
with watching my dad's life slip slowly away from me.

But although I was going to pour my anger out in last nights blog entry, I went to bed. i am going to try and start today feeling a bit more upbeat, and list the good things in life. So here it go's!

I have a wonderful immediate family that love and adore me, who I would do anything for
I am healthy ( kind of!)
I am lucky to have found scrapping
My life is not as bad as some of my friends and colleagues life's are and i must be grateful for that
I have had 36 wonderful years with the man known as my DAD and must enjoy the few I have left with him now
I cannot believe 5 years ago today I was browsing in hamleys, a toy shop in Hove, and overheard some ramblings on the news about what i believed to be a bomb scare at the white house, to arrive back at my Uncles house and see before me the horrific scenes that we all know so well to be 9/11 and the fall of the twin towers. Still today those scenes shock me and make me cry.

Back to work, and the monthly page kits are going down a storm. August (much belated) have sold out and next months will be Basic Grey Gypsy, and will be released for general sale at the end of the month. These are limited addition and the only way to guarantee yourself a kit is by subscription. I only make a certain quantity up and they go to subscribers first and then on general sale!

The Retreat is coming together and with only days left till the BIG weekend it is all very exciting This weekend was spent planting bulbs, and my helper Lilly was brilliant. A layout is definitely in the making there.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend
hugs and please spare a thought for the victims of 9/11 today

    i second shirleen - if i have to fly back to the uk to hug you till all that self doubt pops out i will. you are fab and kind hearted and wonderful. no matter what happens there will always be bad things in our lifes (especially with a hobby that is 99% woman) so enjoy the good things - life every moment and make sure you remeber that if 80% of the time life is good, then it is GOOD!

    Do the bad times/things have the right to live rent free in your head?! But the bad days make you appreciate the good in your life. x

    That Anam woman doesn't half talk sense ;) Thank you so much for what you do for us. For this retreat you have put your heart and soul into, for the wonderous Angle Kisses and whopper blooms I'll soon be buying in abundance from you and for that fab smile that greets me when I blog-stalk you. See you next week scrapping angel xoxox
    ps. my security letters I had to type in had the word 'hag' in it. Do you think it knows it's me?

    Hi Anna
    I can totally relate to the way you feel!
    I think all creative people go through awful periods of self doubt
    There are many days when I question what Im doing and why the hell I bother!
    Take comfort in the fact that there are people who love and support you and try and make time for yourself (not easy I know!)
    Just 1/2 hour "me" time can be so refreshing when your head is spinning with all you have to do and are responsible for
    take care
    big huggz

    Aw Anna I'm sorry you have been facing such a tough time. Can't wait to actually meet you at the retreat, but it must be almost the last thing on your mind at the moment.

    Big hugs
