.... 2 posts in 24 hours....lol I am on a roll, mind you i did try and send a post via my mobile phone but am still waiting for the code to come through so I can link my phone blog so that it will post them on here ! ok here is some jewellery bits i have made and my cute model.

this one above is my first successful attempt at bead stitching. I was taught to do it by Ann Marie , if you click on her blog link you will see some of her lovely examples, so big hugs and thanks to Ann Marie for her patience. Have made 2 more but will take pics of those later .

Below is my lovely little model who tests out my jewellery for me to make sure that the links, knots etc are firm...

And some not so cute pictures of the little monster !!

Wet Wipes - a whole brand new packet - what can you do but take a picture of the little monkeys
Mummy's bag of shredded paper was a good thing to throw around whilst she was off making a coffee, obviously the knot in the bag was not Marcus proof !!
Hugs and thanks for stopping by

Still Alive

OMG 7 nearly 8 weeks since i last updated this how bad am I . Ok so down to the nitty gritty waffly stuff. Whats been happening.............

Well the boys went back to school, broke up for October half term and have gone back again. Nathan has started his duke of Edinburgh award , in fact he is up the Wrekin today orienteering, rock climbing and litter picking ( yes this is part of the environment section of the scheme). Callum is plodding along, he has been doing pottery at school these past few days making a candle holder for the Diwali festival that they are learning about in school. He is also practicing hard for the version of grease the drama group is putting on next year .. I so can't Wait to see him in that and I will most definitely post pictures as and when. He will also be assigned his part in the christmas school play soon, and as he is in year 6 he will have a part rather than being consigned to the choir like the other 4 years.

Marcus, well he has turned one, is running round like an Olympic athlete. I am thinking of signing him up with the government as a spy as that boy can shift so fast and silently it is unbelievable. His speech is coming on great he is picking up words wonderfully. His favourite a few weeks ago was "ohhh Buggerrrr" which he picked up very quickly off his daddy!! Well i shall post some pics as it gets boring with just words, these are from Marcus's first birthday

Nathan has to try everything for size and this time his bum is to large and it got STUCK!

Birthday wheels from Grandma

The card was cut out for me by Maz on her craft Robo(thankyou hun ) ( iwill get myself one of theses one day ) the image is stamped and then enlarged in PSP and coloured in using prisma pencils


YUMMMMMM (favourite word at the moment, every food thing is YUMMM even if it is YUK) Cake !

I WILL be back again soon hugs and thanks for stopping by
