Tired now

It's Saturday night and nearly time for bed.
I've made 8 cards but haven't photographed them so here is something I did last year instead. One of each of my babies.

Kids stayed at my Mums last night....Heaven.
Today we all went to visit my brother amd his wife.
Tomorrow I'll be making sure everything is ready for School and Nursery on Monday.

Tuesday Blues

I got a filling done today at the dentist. Now my mouth is starting to hurt and I'm not a happy bunny.
Been a busy few days going out and about making the most of the last few days of the school holidays.
(thank Goodness!)
Here is a pic of my darlings enjoying the Glasgow Show.

It's Tuesday and I'm crafting tonight, just need to decide what to do. I need to make a First day of School card and a 4th Birthday card.
I'll post the results soon.
I got a new Gorjuss Girl stamp, Little Star. So I may do her.

Didn't craft but went for a long peacefull soak in the bath and pampered myself. Heaven.

Here's some stuff I prepared earlier tho.....

The PC was Knackered, we got it fixed then our internet connection went tits up.

Finally all seems to be working so it's time to get back to blogging.

It's a pleasant evening, kids are staying at Grannies house and we're just catching up on telly we have recorded.
I'll get photo's loaded and post some things over the next couple of days.

Thank Crunchie!!!

It's Friday!!!

Had a good week craftwise as I sold a lot of the cards I'd made and just had sitting around.
Which means I got to buy some stuff....
Fairy Doodles and the Forever Friends Champagne bottle stamp.
Happy me.
Tomorrow Pete's Mum and dad are renewing their wedding vows so an early start for us.
And a scrapping oppertunity for me!
This PC is so slow I haven't uploaded any pics but I promise they will come, some day.

Sorry I've not been on, our PC blew up.
I'm using an old very slow PC at moment while Pete's brother tries to save our beastie.
Hopefully I'll be able to post more often now.
We've had a busy time as well, with trips away and some crafting to show.
A trip to Loudon Castle with the Sunday School last Saturday, Birthday party on Sunday, crafting Tuesday, out for my Anniversary on Wednesday, kids at Ben Lomond with daddy on Thursday, In-laws Golden Wedding celebration last night and Pete took Sam to the Army open day today.
I'll elaborate soon
Missed you all this week

Well last night was the Nickleback gig and I had a ball.
Been a long time since I went to a rock concert. It's not Petes cup of tea at all so we tend to just do ones we both like which means I get the short end of the stick as he has very limited taste and I like most types of music.
The gig was great, some off my fav songs to sing along with. Cass, your Black Stone Cherry did Highway to Hell with them and it really lifted the roof.

They really liked their pyro tho. Nearly had a heart attack on more than one occasion. Maybe a sign that I'm getting old!!!
I was amazed tho to see a family there with a couple of young boys, the littlest could only have been 4 or 5. Not sure I'd want to expose my little ones to the noise level or the swearing but each to their own.
It's the Sunday School Prize giving today so off to church in a while then I'm hoping the kids will play nice and I can get on with the housework. House is a tip.
Pete will be back from his boys weekend later, hungover but happy. Then we'll get the kids to bed and watch the Grand Prix, so nobody is to tell who won.
Sun is shining at the moment so lets hope it lasts. Have a great day everyone
Loving ya Sandra xx

My boy

I've mentioned my boy, Freddie a couple of times so I thought I'd post a pic of him. He was my baby long before I had my babies.
Nothing much been happening this week. Got a bit of a block on the crafting front. Keep moving things about on pages but never decide on anything.
Hubbie is away this weekend and kids are off school tomorrow and Monday.
It'll be a long weekend ahead for me.
I do have something to look forward to to see Nickleback on saturday night with my lovely friend Susan.

Candy Alert

Go to Michelles blog - the Card Grotto.
Birthday candy up fo grabs and a cool blog.
Link on right.

Tuesday, 19 May 2009


Look what my friend Suzanne woke up to this morning.
3 little babies. I adore kittens and have just lost one of my cats at Easter.
First thing Pete said when I said kittens was an emphatic "NO"
LOL. He know's me well.
But it wouldn't be fair on my old man to subject him to a baby. He's 17 soon.

Old stuff

Yesterday afternoon was spent watching this little lot strutting their stuff in 3 outfits each!They all did very well.
My angel is in the middle in the long dress.
Not done much recently so here are a couple of older layouts for your pleasure.

Emma's 5th Birthday layout. Urban lily paper, bazzil and hero arts swirl stamp.

This was my first double layout. Basic Grey Archaic papers.
It features a day out that my Hubbie took our kids and my friend susans too.
Giving us a childless day.
He's a good man.

The above is a Birthday Card for a friend.

The cards below are part of an on going gift project.
Penny Black stamps and K & Co papers.

Emma has a Rainbows Fashion Show tomorrow and has to have 3 outfits, Evening wear, casual wear and Beachwear. You have no idea how difficult it is to get a 6 year old to agree on suitable outfits. She thinks she's a super model!!
I could do without it.

My First Award

Thank you so much Cass.

Go and have a look her cards are lovely.

Finally, photos!

Well it's another nice day here in Bonnie Scotland.
Day's gone fast with school run, supermarket, Nursery run, laundry, dishes and a wee bit of crafting. Hopefully time for more later.

My lovely Daughter on a Pirate and Princesses sponsored walk for Christian Aid. Lots of Rainbows and Brownies all dressed up.

Scrapbook page of Pete and Sam on the Queens view using Fancypants Papa papers

Tildas coloured with H2O's just need to decide what to do with them.
I've also made a birthday card for my friend but I'm not posting it till after in case she sees it.

Time seems to fly at the moment and I never seem to get as much done as I'd like.

Tuesday, 12 May 2009

I'm back!

What a week!

Sam was ill Monday then I got it and then his sis. So I've been a bit out of it.
Did manage to knock this card together tho.

Been typical Scottish weather today, blazing sunshine, rain and a howling gale....all at once!!!!

Hoping to get a night out soon but arguing with Pete about which movie to go see, he wants Wolverine and I fancy Star Trek. Don't get out that often without kids so looking forward to it.

Poor baby

Well the decision of what to do with the kids was a moot point as my little man spent yesterday burning up with a fever.

Luckily Granny had Emma and took her to the cinema as I was stuck on the sofa with a child on top of me for most of the day.

Unfortunatly I have caught what he has and it feels like broken glass every time I swallow. Boo hoo!

Tonight is my craft night at my friends and I hate to miss it but at the mo.........

Time to splash the cash

Well we made £120 at the boot sale so I get to go shopping tho not with the full £120 unfortunatly .

Not bad for a load of stuff that we would normaly send to charity.

Now what will I buy.........

Haven't done any crafting at all this weekend.
I might get out some stamps and do some colouring later tho.

Oh dear. I've just remembered the kids are off school for next 2 days, what will I do with them!

Saturday, 2 May 2009

Saturday nights alright

Today I have been sorting things for a car boot sale tomorrow.
We'll hopefully get rid of a lot of clutter and make some money.

Like many people money is tight at the moment and it's my stash that suffers! Boo Hoo!
But I'll be able to have a wee splurge if we shift some junk.
The only good thing about being financially challenged is that I've had to dig deep into my stash and have found lots of things I'd forgotten about.

Once I get the little angels into bed I'm off round to my pals with a bottle of wine.
A merry end to the day for me. Lol!

Friday, 1 May 2009

Ear plugs please!

What have I done!
Promised my 3 year old he could have his wee pal for a sleepover next time his sis went to stay at granny's. So tonight I have 2 very over excited 3 year olds on their first sleepover. The noise level is phenomenal.
Hopefully they'll tire each other out soon, then I'll let them watch a movie in bed.

I really must try and do some crafting this weekend send me some inspirational vibes please.


This made me smile.
How many people have learned the hard way that cats and crafting don't mix.LOL.

Quiet Day

Sorry I didn't manage to get on yesterday.

Went to my friend Susan's (love you!) last night for our weekly crop. Managed 3 layouts which I'll put on later once I find the cable for the camera!

Having a very quiet day. Sam seems to be fighting something and is clinging to me.

Mum will come up later after a hospital appointment. She spent Easter in hospital for a week with cellulitis(sp?) not good!
After she got out she had an allergic reaction to the antibiotics so had to stop them which means the infection isn't completely gone. Hopefully the Docs will set her up today.

I really should go and do housework but instead I'm going to catch up on some blogs.

Monday, 27 April 2009


Busy day today.
Feel like I haven't stopped but also haven't managed to do every thing I'd planned.

Just back from a new Hairdressing Salon launch. Rock n Rollers on Pollokshaws road. Free wine which is always good.

Been trying to get my bedroom into some sort of order but I think it's worse than when I started. Need to clear the bed if I've to have any hope of getting into it!

Not managed to get any crafting done so no work to show. I might put some previous work on tomorrow.

Sunday, 26 April 2009

Welcome to my World

Well Hello.

I've been following some blogs for a while and have finally gotten up the guts to try myself.

Haven't done much today except Housework and entertaining kids. DH is out and won't be back till later when he'll expect dinner, not going to happen!!

This is what my little darlings should be doing. I'm now off to be big bad Mummy and get them sleeping.
