And yet more...

Now that I seem to have got to grips with the main blog site again I thought I'd better bring you the Colour me Positive pages that have not yet been posted....and on checking back through the posts it would appear that you've only seen week 1 - shock horror.....what have I been doing I hear you all cry, well as you know I have been having tech problems but I seem to have mastered my iPad again and given up on using the Blogger app which, whilst easy to use, was in fact the root of all my problems.

So here go with a catching up session...

Nothing can dim the light that shines from within. 

Life is better when you are laughing.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

It always seems impossible until it is done.

Be strong you never know who you are inspiring.

If it doesn't open, it's not your door 


When the world says give up hope whispers try one more time


Forget the mistake remember the lesson


Have an awesome day and if that doesn't work try again tomorrow.


Beautiful things happen when you distance yourself from negativity

It was interesting to see just how much I'd not shown on here yet!  I promise I will try to be a better blogger....and now I need to go and see what others have been up to as well!

Busy times

I lost a crafting friend a year ago, recently I was contacted by her husband and asked to come and get some of her stash as he had no use for it and indeed no idea what to do with it all.

I confess there was a lot, an awful lot!

I came away with quite a haul and that was just skimming through....these are some of the dies I got that were all loose. Others are in their packaging and yet others were still brand new.

I got some sizzix, Tim Holtz ans Spellbinders as well as unidentifiable ones. Some will almost certainly get sold on as I have got duplicates in there too.

Life Documented and for February its all about crashing your stash so let's go for it!

Create with less and use what you have, use 5 items from your stash, quote: "life throws challenges and every challenge comes with raianbows and lights to conquer it" (Amit Ray)

week 7

week 8
use a colour that you don't usually use, quote: bee pre4sent

week 9

and that's that one all caught up!

Well, I'm really not getting to grips with the "new blog" site! So now it looks like I'm going to have to start firing up the laptop every time I do a post so I can get photos onto this one.....
