So I thank them with all my heart...my mum would have loved you both, had she met you !!! So I take each day as they come...knowing that some days will be better than others, and that's fine....So thankyou Di and Mel, you'll never know just how MUCH I luv you guys...I am soooo lucky to have friends like YOU.. Will be in next week with cake...I promise !!!
My second piece of news, is that I have been given a guest design spot with Twiddleybitz...and I LUUURRVVVE Twiddleybitz. One can never have too much chipboard....I have FOUR draws fULL!!!! So I am delighted....I cant show you anything yet !!!! But very soon !!!! I have been a very busy little black duck !!
Now I would normally insert the link to the Twiddleybitz website.....But I haven't worked out how to yet, But this is the address...http://twiddleybitz.com/ as soon as I work out how, I will add the link...you must go have a look...They have some wonderful chipboard designs...and like I said before...One can never have too much chipboard !!!

Loving Birdcages

I just had to show you this little birdcage I bought today....Isn't it absolutely sooooo cute... AND its only an inch tall....If you look real closely, you can see the little bird inside on a swing !!!! Am working on something along the same lines, but it's not finished yet...I plan to put in a few good hours on it tonight....now that the kids are in bed.
Will be back soon, with something to show you (hopefully).... :=)
