Found my folder!

So I made this, this week, for starters! Picked up some lovely hessian shapes, in a variety of colours, from the pound shop. I have to say, sometimes they come up with some fab stuff, so I grabbed these! Have also been busy decorating Andrew's room. Anybody remember these??
A feature wall behind a board hiding the fireplace- so we told Andrew it's a keeper!! TFLxx

I was so pleased today. I crafted. I took photo's. I uploaded them. I've lost them!! Can I find the folder they are in? No!! So instead of showing a card I made today its a layout from several years ago! Oh well, it's better than nothing!! I will find and share properly tomorrow xx

So little time

I am desperately trying to get to my craft room but summer hols, decorating and work are collaborating to make it a no go! So this is not a fantastic photo but at least its a newish one. There are some more cards on my desk waiting for photo's but I need some time or a valid excuse to get in there. Can you think of one for me??

Thank goodness for throwback Thursdays

Otherwise I would be on day 4 of no posts!! It's been a funny old week getting back to reality after our holiday.  A sad one too. Like many people, I was so sad to hear of Robin Williams passing. A funny funny man to grow up with. Mork and Mindy was my childhood favourite. Depression has had a lot of discussion on social media. So many suffer from it without others knowing. I've been there. I was on antidepressants  a few years back and couldn't bear the bleakness of life, despite a wonderful husband and delightful children. But it's not a subject to share- you just battle inwardly and try to keep going. Some days you're good- which is most of them for me now but someday's not so much.
I was back to work today which was a bit of a shock so have not had a chance to get creative-who knows- tomorrow maybe!
