Happy sunday to all!

I'm still getting to grips with the how to's of blogging, so my first few posts probably won't get anyone excited. I thought I'd show you all this picture of my Abyssinian cat- Charlie. At the time I was trying to take some photos of a craft project for a magazine. He is just one and we rescued him last autumn. I have started looking for another one, as he is the most wonderful cat I have ever owned, but it turns out they cost about £450!! I think I'll need to save up a bit first!!

I've arrived!!

Ok, it's going to be baby steps for quite a while... but I've entered the world of the blogger!! I'm quite sure you don't want to know all the details, but in brief I'm a committed papercraft addict. There. I've said it. This is the first step to recovery.... except I don't want to recover! They say the family of an addict suffer more than the person with the habit- I'm sure my husband would agree (my son is at school during the day, so he doesn't know the extent of my addiction).. but short of the total collapse of my craft room, there's nothing that can stop me crafting!! I'm into cards mainly. Scrapbooking doesn't really float my boat, although I do dabble. I design advertising and display samples for a craft company, sometimes freelance for a magazine, I've just become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and generally make a full time job of 'cutting & sticking for grown-ups' as my husband puts it. When I've had chance to get to grips with this blog malarkey (in other words, had a lie down in a darkened room..) I'll try to share something creative with you all!
