Blimey I am hopeless.. my notion of posting a photo a day has already fallen flat on its face. Oh well.. So here's Monday 3rd Jan: Yep, it's a yucky photo but it had to be taken because it reveals... Continue reading

Today's lesson:You might think you're well prepared.. but you've probably still overlooked something. I had my monthly card-making class this morning and felt comparatively at ease in the half-an-hour or so before it was due to start. I had all... Continue reading
