Yes its actually me ….I am not sure where the past month has gone …I have been absent from blogging … and as for crafting. …well I get glimmers of inspiration but by the time I get everything out …most times its gone again. I cant wait to get my bedroom decorated and the storage sorted….its all there …. leaning against the wall in what is laughingly called the dinning area …waiting for Jay and Vicki to have the time and energy to do it all for me, now that they have finished the boys room and constructed the new bunk bed. I still have to finally make up my mind on a couple of things though, so an extra couple of weeks, is fine,

Well here is the end of the table, which I have taken over for the next 24 hours …or as long as sticky fingers and paws allow.

The eagle eyed of you may spot a couple of Promarkers ….yes I gave in at the demo by Angel Crafts, at the last crop, and bought 25. …but if I really get into it I will need at least another 25 lol . I also picked up some bits and bobs …did you notice the masks … and a few sheets of card stock …not that I needed any... lol ... but it was fun spending my birthday money.

I have 3 LO’s nearly finished and 3 I’m at the thinking stage still ….which could be a long process when it comes to me …as I wait for inspiration to strike.

This collage illustrates where some of the month has gone ……

Mothers day was brilliant …cards, chocs little gifts, yummy breakfast, all organized by DD and then a personalized card and an Interflora bouquet from DS and his family.

Robbie learnt to ride a bike …with out stabilizers …but with some pain.

We discovered a new park with a nature trail, a great children’s play area and an adult gym/play area too.….

We visited my Mum and Grandfather … and used it to explain about cemeteries to Robbie and Kristofer. They were happy to accept it was a place to remember those who have gone to heaven.

BTW my sons family has increased …… no not another baby... FOUR kittens….I don’t think they are planning to keep any …and Steve has said I cant take any either. …maybe that a good thing as they are so cute lol

I have so much catching up to do amongst my blogger friends ...and I will catch up...promise ...just forgive my absence ...but I also must try to visit as many WOYWW areas over the next couple of days as I can. I am so hoping my back doesn't play me up.

Take Care xx

Sometimes life just gets in the way of crafting doesn't it? :-) It's good to have you back.

Have missed you and am glad you are back. Like wipso said, life does sometimes get in the way and that is good.
I do remember that first solo bike ride. Thrilling, scary and yet such a feeling of power and freedom.

Forget the pro markers - I spied your Martha Stewart punches and beautiful layouts (smile) - don't get me wrong, any stash is nice stash! TFS Elaine #21

Sounds like you have had a very busy week! Life keeps you away from a lot more fun crafting if you aren't careful! I still haven't given in to th Promarkers or Copics yet still using pencils. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #78

Hi Angie - sounds like you have had a busy month. Great to have you back. Love the baby pics - so cute and they grow up far too quickly don't they!! (Mine is 31 next week!)

Hi Angie, this is my first visit to you I think. The end of the table desk has great stuff on it... interested to see what you do with the masks.
Your family and M's Day sound great, and the crafting will return! I invested in Copic pens but I gather they're similar to ProMarkers. I'm sure you'll enjoy them. Come by and visit the Feline page when you have a moment.

Those baby pictures are super cute and I like the layout I can see in the right corner.

It’s good to see you back Angie and you’ve obviously been extreamly busy, as your desk shows.

Happy Easter and Crafting!
