Well its back to school for the boys tomorrow and back to work for me, only Monday morning and then not until Friday morning so not too bad!!!! Got loads of cards to make for some card sales I have coming up!!! Can't get fired up to make them at the minute, I think I have too many ideas in my head, need to go back to basics!!!! Been to rehearsal for my show this afternoon, went quite well!! Here are some photos of my craft room I have been re-jigging it this weekend, still got some bitsto change here and there, photos will be better in daylight too!

Rehearsals are going well but ticket sales not too good, people don't know the show well enough which is a shame as it is fantastic!! If you live in Leeds please come and see it, Yeadon Town Hall, 13-17 November - I know its a long shot!!!
Had a sort out in my craft room last night, same old story just got too much stuff but still want more!!! I tend to give things to my boys as they like to make cards and do "craft" as they call it!!
Got a few rubber stamps to put onto Ebay and some Sizzix stuff I do longer want as I've got my Cricut. Just waiting to buy the Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge!!! Going to order it from the USA, comes out on 1/12/07!!!!
Did a few cards last night for a show I am involved it!!!! I am a bit of a "lovey" and I am involved with a local amateur theatre group. I say amateur but in July we peformed We Will Rock You the Queen musical and the audience thought we were a professional company on tour!!!!
Anyway we are doing Bat Boy the musical. It is fantastic but no its not about Batman's son!!! It is about a boy who is half bat/half boy and is found in a cave in a small town in the south america, the story is about the predjudices he faces as he tries to become a "normal" boy!! It is very moving and also very funny.
So made a few Good Luck cards to sell to the cast!!!! We did Annie last year and I sold loads to all the parents whose little girls were in it!!!!
Well I've been rambling and no photos to upload!!!!

Penny Black stamp, paper pinched from one of Natty's stacks, think it was Spring Stack (DCWV), floral sentiment again is from Craftwork Cards.
No cards to upload as I have tried to download the software from my mobile but it won't work!!! Boo!!!! Got cards to show you but might have to resort to old methods for now!!!!
Been blog surfing this morning, gosh how talented are some peeps out there!!!! Makes me want to buy more stuff though!!! Really tempted with the Hanna stamps but need to wait until next month as funds a bit low at the moment as I have bought my lovely new laptop!!!!
Better go make lunch!!
Ciao for now!!

Think I had better go buy him some lagers from the off licence!!!!
Anyway I was really pleased with my bargain laptop with its lovely silver casing and everything! 4 HOURS my husband has been trying to set up wireless access for me!!! He's been on the phone to one of those call centres abroad for 1 hour without any joy.
Anyway he's now gone to PC world in the hope of an elusive adapter that we think we may need!!!! The annoying thing is, is that he asked the guy in the shop if he needed one of these in the first place!!!
Back to cards, not had much chance to make many more but am going to try to upload some after my recent failed attempts!!!

Been working this morning (teach music classes 3 mornings a week) so not much crafting today. Had a wedding sample to make up and package and post out for this afternoon.
WAITING FOR STASH TO ARRIVE!!! Ordered £50 worth of goodies from The Glitter Pot yesterday!! Ordered 3 Woodware stamp sets, Hero Arts dinosaur stamp, Changito Monkey stamp and Penny Black Gift Tower stamp!! Can't wait to make cards with these, especially little boys cards as I need to do more of these type!
My craft bud NattyK has really got me into stamping, she has loads of them!! Its great since we have found each other cos now we can share things between us. I have a Cricut and Natty has a Cuttlebug so its supposedly saves us money but I think we egg each other on to buy more stuff!!
Fingers crossed my new toys arrive soon

Please excuse me whilst I experiment and find my way around this whole blog thing, its all a bit trial and error at the moment!
Thought I would try and add a couple of cards!!! Hope it works, drum roll please...............................
The first one is my new Beerafella from StampingBellas!!. I love this little guy but my husband doesn't like this card!!! Good job it wasn't for him!!!! Crate paper, Craftwork cards sentiment and Queen & CO brads!!
Did the second one last week. Bella stamp is my craft buddy's, think its Flowahbella but not sure, used Cuttlebug (also my craft buddy's),sentiment from Craftworkcards and used Whisper's pens!!!
Hoping to add some pictures soon (once I figure out how!!)
Thats all folks for now
