It's been a very long time, I haven't really had anything to show you, I have been struggling to come up with anything so I have been messing around with some inks and things in sort of an art journal, I made a few cards when I had a week off but mostly I spent my time with the kids, I have been feeling as though they are growing up too fast and my time with them is slipping away! I work in retail which means I work evenings and weekends this takes away a lot of my family time. So I have been job hunting without much success, and I think all this has zapped my creative mojo!

I love colouring on kraft with my pencils, it looks so effective, I made this simple card for my FIL's birthday, I stamped the image in Memento rich cocoa, directly onto a 5x7 kraft card blank, coloured with coloursoft pencils, added a stamped sentiment and little buttons.

This book has had me thinking
It's a "Smash Book", from EKsuccess and K&Co.
I used to be a scrapbooker then the card's took over and just keeping on top of the birthday cards for friends and family, not to mention everyday stuff (like the job) takes up all my time. I still take loads of photo's but can't remember the last time I printed any! So when I came across this little book the cogs started turning and scrapbooking came to mind, I have seen loads of DIY versions of the book and decided that I don't want off the peg I want mine to be unique but I really like the pen that comes with it, a pen at one end and glue stick at the other, will have to look out for it in the shops they will sell replacement pens I would imagine.
Check this out http://www.eksuccessbrands.com/kandcompany/smash/ for more info, and what this space you may witness the return of the scrapbooker who knows!
