How Long?

It was our Anniversary this weekend. As we are not married, we celebrate the day we met.

And that was 6 years ago!!!!

Sometimes it doesn't seem that long and other times it seems forever. All in a good way of course.

And my lovely man spoiled me in the way only he can.

This gorgeous set is made from silver and set with amethyst. It is also handmade, which you can tell if you look closely. Each piece is slightly different.

The photo really doesn't do it justice.

I know I haven't been on here much recently but I have been doing lots of scrapping.

I am in the process of putting together an 8" album to display some of my crocheted embellishments. Hopefully, if people see them used they will buy more!

Some are new LOs, some are older digi ones that I have printed off without the crochet bits and added the "real" versions instead.

This is a "real" one with crocheted daisies. I have used brads in the centre of them.

And this is another using crocheted doodling which is a free pattern on my site.

I am not entirely happy about the flower in the corner, I may change it for something else.

The little bee stamp I got on eBay. And, of course, I did get the second set of letters from Tesco. And have made good use of them!

I have also been working on my A-Z photo journal. I know the idea was to get it all done last year but the time ran away with me!

I have started scrapping the letters. I am doing double layouts for each letter and three different versions - a digi 12", a digi A4 and a real 12".

The reason for the digi A4 is so that I can take them into work and get them printed off for the residents to look at. As many of them are local, it may help them remember things.

The digi 12" is partly for planning but also for printing off to give my family an 8" version of it.

And the "real" 12" is for me. I deserve it after all the hard work going into it.
