Back on deck with a fresh new look and some resolutions!

Hello my beautiful blogging friends,

I am sorry my blog has been so neglected now for the past three months.  I even considered shutting it down, but I am determined that I still want this part of my life.  It has been three months since Nicholas was born and life is starting to get easier in terms of me achieving more during my day...apart from looking after Nicholas and getting lots of delicious cuddles from him.  So my new resolution is at least one post a week.  Not as much as I used to post, but a start.  I have updated my blog a little with a fresh new look and some more recent photos.  I have a candy I am collecting to celebrate me getting back into blogging on a regular basis.  I aim to post all the details about this candy next week.

I have been making a few cards here and there and have more cards published this month.  The ten quick cards feature again.  I am now more than ever a fan of quick cards so I think I will be blogging more of those.  Who doesn't love a card they can whip up quickly, without too much time or thinking?

I do love this magazine.  And did you know that anyone can contribute? If you have considered sending in some cards, or would like to see your own cards photographed in a glossy magazine, why not give it go.  Buy a copy of the mag here, or get a subscription and read all the details on what you need to do.

So I have organised my week with one job to achieve a day...apart from general housework, cooking and washing.  I wont bore you with the details...but Tuesday is blogging day.  I do aim to also return blogging comments as I really do value the friendships I have made on the internet, so here is me turning over a new leaf!

And now for a catch up of cards...

These cards were me literally running to my craft desk, slapping some papers together, scribbling on a message and trying to get them in the post for the peoples whose birthdays were already a few weeks gone.  It was fun to make cards in such a quick way.  They may not be stunning, but at least they are home made!

Well, I have to be off now..Nicholas is up and it is bath time...so until next week..
