Stash: Incoming! Plus a badly shot baby card

It's been so long since i've been here at this familiar place.  The place where I have lovingly uploaded so much of my life and my creations.

A place where I connect with those who 'get me' and share in what I do.

I've taken time out to refresh my batteries.  It was so long since i'd last crafted, I mean REALLY crafted and dug in to something amazing for me.  Something that excited me and made me want to upload right that instant.

But then I did create something.. oh and boy, it was one of the best creations I ever set eyes on:


Gabe, aged 9 months, nannas house.

*Oh, hai!*

So i've been focusing all of my love and  attention on family, on kids, on enjoying moments i'll never get back again - and 2011 was amazing! I feel complete, I feel positive and I feel happy.  Trully happy.

I'm getting more free time now, so I knocked up a quick card for the 52 card challenge over on UKS, run by the very talented Nat of Kool Kitty Musings.

My sister is expecting so I thought it'd be nice to knock up a little something although I really dislike the end result:

Well, it's a start isn't it? I've completed a challenge, used up old stash.  It feels great!  Shame about the crappo picture thanks to winter nights!

Lastly.. on the mention of stash...

Thank you Sarahs Cards and Jackies Fabrics for your awesome bargains!

Well.. you can't use it up without replenishing 10 fold!? Stash diet?? Pfft! They're for the weak!
