Post Number 800...

...I certainly didn't think I would get this far with my blogging.

This year I decided I was going to make more of an effort with my blog and like all things - it started off fine...then I started to struggle.

My crafting has always been a bit eclectic (I think that's a posh way of saying 'a bit of a mish-mash' LOL) and I wasn't sure what to share with everyone. So I've had a go a sharing most of the crafty things that I do with you lovely folk out in Blogland. You've had a peek at my ceramics, knitting, crochet, sewing and paper crafts and you have been very kind in return with your lovely comments.

Back in May, I dipped my toe into the world of 'challenges' and at my first attempt I was lucky enough to say I'm now "hooked" is probably an understatement but at least it has given me the motivation to create stuff that I can then share on here.

I decided to put my 'challenge' cards altogether in one place but... you can see - I think I need to find a bigger basket LOL
One thing that taking part in all these challenges has brought me...the ability to endulge my love of 'colouring in' (I think my stamping might be improving too LOL) and it has also given me a perfect excuse to make Christmas stuff any time I please **hehehe** - forget 'Christmas in July'...I had Christmas fun back in May when I won my first challenge and the seasonal theme has put in an appearance on a regular basis - for that I make no apologies...I LIKE CHRISTMAS...LOL

So what better way to mark the 800th post on this little bit of cyberspace but to find out that I was lucky enough to make the 'Top 3' over at Totally Tilda with my Christmas decoration for challenge #27. I now have a pretty new blinky over at the righthand side.

Well enough waffling from me otherwise I won't have anything made to put on here as post 801..............................

I could almost do the same sort of post- only started card making ( other than to give out) a little while ago - now have a box with over 50 in!! Bought my copics a couple of weeks ago and LOVE them.
Looking forwards to post 801 :D
