Meet my gorgeous grandson Marley He now lives with me and is wonderful company.
Well the house alterations are almost complete although there is still some work which needs to be finished by the builder but not sure I will ever see him again ... a word of advise.... never pay up in full until all the work is complete .
the others from the set of fruit ATC's are on a post further down the page

Hello dear friends of SaWo. It is time again for a new challenge.
Many thanks to all those who last week so busily recycled.
There were wonderful creations. This week the challenge is “Make your own jewellery”. Whether it be rings, earrings, broaches, bracelets, it’s up to you. I am looking forward to being surprised with your pieces of jewellery. I wish you loads of fun with crafting your creations and have a great weekend.
I already made the necklace and earrings a little while ago but wanted to support Sandie and her challenge blog so I am showing them for this weeks challenge.
Thanks for looking

So Sorry I have not been around for some time I have been busy moving house.
I hope very soon to have the place ship-shape and ready to get some crafting days again.
In the meantime here are a few of the ATC's I created before the move for the ATC challenge over at Fiskars, for this month we needed to make 9 ATC's on the subject of 'fruit' well
everytime I think of fruit in the summer it brings to mind long cool glasses of Pimms...I think I captured that here... the background papers have been recycled from a local college prospectus dated 2007/8...I just new it would come in handy one day.
Thanks for looking and I do hope to get some blog hopping done leaving some comments for all my blogging pals.

Once again life has been busy some of it good but some of it very sad, we had a berevement in the family a very special brother-in-law, he was only 52, music and guitar were his love, Dave had just finished a band practice when he took a heart attack. He had a very special gift of lighting up a room with his smile. R.I.P. Dave. x
See the ' black n silver ' necklace I made, it's one of my faves.
Thanx for looking. Chriss x :0)

This is a very quick post as I just want you to know I have not left the country....once again my PC crashed on me but I was unable to get it fixed as my son was on holiday...HOW DARE HE IN MY HOUR OF NEED...LOL.
We now know the problem, a part of my Acer laptop does not like AVG so every new update was causing it to crash... don't know if anyone else has had the same probs with an Acer and AVG.
Before it crashed I managed to take on the Fiskarettes 1st ATC challenge the theme being ''Wings'' below are my 9 entries for the challenge. Hope that you like them.

It's Friday again!!!
Apparently the happiest day of the year... Did anyone feel happier today than they have in the rest of the last 6 months????
Chris decided she would tag me and I must show picture number 6 in my 6th album
This is one of my dads school attendance certificates he was awarded at school.... My dad never took a day off even when he didn't have any shoes to his feet.
... Sadly Dad is no longer with us, he passed away 10yrs ago, I still miss himloads .xx
Happy Father's day for Sunday to all those wonderful dads out there.
So what have we here...
I finally finished the sewing machine.... Firstly I coated it in Alcohol inks which I bought from Karen at Scrapz over HERE and then I decorated the machine with Lisa's Altered Art sewing images, I love her images, why not check them out by clicking on her button on the right.
The completed sewing machine is now A DOOR STOP.... lol.
And as promised another bracelet.

Hello and a Happy Monday....
doesn't the week fly? before you know it we are a week closer to Christmas...oh, sorry about that...every year I say that the year went fast and I am convinced that 2009 has already gone faster than other years...Do you know it's only 5 more pay days to Christmas!!!
Over on the our ATC blog HERE we had a challenge to recycle an old Calendar here are my ATC's for the said challenge.
The backgrounds are all Cosmo Cricket's fab papers and the images are from the 2005 Ordinary Women Calendar.... I just adore those images.
...sooooo much fun.
Have a great week
