About Me and my Craft Shed

My photo

Born in London, but been living in Leicestershire since 1988.

I have been a Showaddywaddy fan since I first saw them on New Faces in 1973, and have finally started being able to get to their concerts since December 2012, although can only get to those in the Midlands area.

I have been a crafter since I was a child, and do many varied crafts.  At present I am working on a Scrapbook documenting Showaddywaddy from their start to the present - 2013 being their 40th year.

Snow & New Toy


Hi all, I hope your all nearly ready for the big day at the end of the week.  All or most of our present buying this year was done online, so it saved me having to get it all home.  I just have a few things left to get at the shops this week and the market for the fruit and veggies.

We had our first snow of the season last night, and more during the night - however it was not as bad as what it can be, and certainly not enough to get excited about.

My new toy is my Christmas present from my lovely husband - a laser printer for my craft work, and it is amazing, and can't wait to get playing on it.  The technical info is that it is an Oki C3300n Colour Laser printer, and because you get so many more pages out of the toners on a laser it will in effect reduce the costs of my printing by quite a bit.  This isn't a brilliant picture of it, but I will take one of my own when everything is set up in the craft shed.

I will try to get back on before Friday, but if I don't, may I wish you a very Merry Xmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year.  May all your craft problems be little ones.

Background/Layout for this blog

I am at present trying to get over having the flu again - what type i really do not know or care - I just want rid of it.  That and having had a constant migraine for the past week has driven me to utter distraction - hopefully I will get chance to visit the GP next week some time.

Anyway - I was not happy with the background/layout of the blog, and I really can't find anything I like enough to keep there for more than 2 minutes, so I am going to have a go at designing my own - I know - I can here you saying it already - now watch her make a mess of it - well if it goes wrong it goes wrong - it's not the end of the world and I can revert back to this again.  So this is more of a Watch this space and see what happens - ohhh go on have a giggle - you know you want to and you will feel so much better for it.
