  1. Hi Everyone,


    Just wanted to let you all know I have not run off and forgotten about the swaps.


    My laptop has broke and has had to be sent back to be fixed. I was logged on one night and then suddenly my screen went blank and they have said it could take upto 4 weeks to fix.


    My brother has kindly lent me his laptop tonight so I can get addresses etc for the stuff I need to send out.


    I have received my card and a really nice rak in the butterfly card swap the other day. THANK YOU.


    I am borrowing the laptop again Friday night but just for an hour so if you are expecting something off me and it has not arrived by then just pm me on here incase have missed someone.


    Sorry if you thought I was some sort of a scammer.


    Hopefully I will be back posting regular again soon. x

  2. Your poor cat things like that can really terrify them im glad you topped it in time.

    When my previous cat was about 17 he went missing as did a neighbours across the road at the same time (another oldie). Anyway after 3 days he turned up on the door step unable to move. When we took him to the vets he said someone had smashed his back leg really hard with what looked like a cricket bat. He was severely dehydrated also as it was high summer. He had managed to drag himself home though but he looked terribly thin.

    We were lucky enough to have his leg amputated and he was with us for nearly 3 years after though an indoor cat only (before we could not get him in the house) and every time he heard a loud noise he was ever so jumpy.

    Our neighbour was not so lucky. The same thing had happened to his cat but it was gone longer which meant the dehydration had caused kidney damage and he had to be pts.

    I get really angry over animal neglect and have had a few run ins with people over animal scaring myself.


    Sorry for the rant it just brought it all back as it is nearly 4 years since the incident and 2 years since we lost him.

  3. Ok so we are planning to go away for a week later in the year as a family. This will be our first family holiday.


    Unfortunately I am not very well travelled and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of places in England that is nice for a family. I do not want anywhere like Skegness or Blackpool. We would love somewhere with a beach but also countryside so we can go for walks etc.


    With you ladies being spread around the country I thought you may be able to offer some suggestions.My only stipulation is it cant be anywhere to expensive. I am happy with somewhere that has static caravan parks.



  4. Thats really "Tweet" :lol:


    I dont know how you put papers together, I would never of thought of putting those papers together and they work so well you have a good eye for colours and patterns :-) Love the Bird and how you used the patterned paper for his wing. FAB :-)


    My sentiments exactly.

    Love the blueness of this one.

  5. Hiya,


    I have been really inspired by your jewellery makes and was wondering what "kit" would I need to have a go myself. I would want to try on something basic so would probaly start with handbag harms or something like that though was wondering what I would need to get me stated.



  6. I would just like to say thank you for the lovely RAKS you have both sent me. Thy will both come in very handy and I have already startd to play already. I will take photos once I have got some more camera batteries.


    Pink Puppy - variety of stamped images you sent me were fab. I have already made 2 bookmarks for the swap out of them as I could not resist waiting.


    Copse - Thanks fr the Tilda stamped images I have had some fun tonight (once I was told it had arrived. 10pm and my partner tells me I had a package). Well me being me I had to get my pens out straight away. Also thank you for the lovely papers I have lots of ideas for them and the ribbons and embellishments. :-)



    I am very very happy and have a busy colouring in weekend ahead of me I think. OOOOOH I feel about 9 again getting this excited over colouring in. :-D

  7. Thanks everyone. I have a few to look at now. I made the mistake because im new of just buying stuff because it was cheap and thought it was the way I was doing it but since joining this forum I have learnt loads already.


    Thank you everyone. x
