Just in case anyone is worried that my blog has been hacked, no reason to worry. I spend a lot of my time at the moment writing books as well and am now working on my fourth novel. I still craft when I have time to do so and hope to post some crafting on here again soon.

A little update

Hi there everyone.

Just to let you know I'm still around, just rather busy with other things. I have recently retired from my day job, but then started to take up my other hobby again as well. I have been really busy with that and have made it a bit of a 'career change' if you will. I will soon pick up on this blog though as well.

If you are interested to know about my other hobby (writing novels), then feel free to have a look on my Author's blog, my website, or follow me on  facebook, twitter or Inlinkz as you please for updates on that.

Quick post

Hello everyone,

I am still around, however I have had a rather busy time with work, home etc and therefore not been posting here much at all. This means my challenges have not been continuing as before. I can't promise when I will start those up again, they take quite a lot of work. I will at some stage also need to update this blog as a lot of my newer material has never been added. Just keep an eye out every few months or so to see if any changes have taken place.

As before, none of these things are for sale. I only use them as prizes for challenge winners here or at CRAFT Challenge. If other challenge blogs are in need of a sponsor they can always contact me and see if I am able to help out.

I have not forgotten all about my followers and friends in blog land.

300th Challenge at CRAFT Challenge

Morning all,

A long absence as I have been really busy with work and home. This week at CRAFT Challenge we celebrate our 300th challenge with our followers. I had nearly totally forgotten about it, but fortunately several of our DT already gave me the heads up on it. I have therefore worked on a mini kit to celebrate this challenge, which will be free to download by our followers if they wish. It does not really fit in with the challenge subject, but I hope you like it anyway. Just in case you want to have access to it as well, here it is available for download. Just click on the picture to download.

Some free papers for CRAFT Challenge

Morning all and a Happy and Crafty 2015,

Long time, no see. I have been rather busy this last year with work and home and I have had very little chance to spend on my hobby of crafting.

At CRAFT Challenge this week our challenge is a Colour Combo as below, I created some papers with this colour combo and you can download these for free, provided you use them for your personal use only, do not claim them as your own and give credit where credit is due.

Good luck with our challenge!

Hope this will give you a start on our first challenge of 2015!

Thursday Freebie 22nd of May 2014

Morning all,

Sorry it has been so long, life and work have run away with my time and I have had very little time for crafting or posting freebies over the last few months. As we have a Colour combo challenge at CRAFT Challenge this week, I thought it would be a good idea to get you some freebie papers to get you going.

So, here you go, do enjoy and don't forget to use them for your personal use only, not to claim them as your own and give credit where credit is due. If you wish to share, please direct them to this blog instead.

'Here comes the Sun'
And here are the papers for your personal use:
