Slowly does it!

Well it has been weeks since my last post but I am slowly getting back to normal.  Mum is better but still suffering light headiness and is working on getting her confidence back.  At 87 years of age she is doing not too badly.  She lives with me which can be good or bad, good because I was able to assist her over the last few weeks while she was ill and bad because we can get on one another's nerves.  That's just how it is for now.

I had infected sinus problems but that has cleared and hubby came down with a stinking cold so it has cough, sneeze, moan and groan for a couple of weeks.  Hopefully that is the end of it for now I want to get my life back.

The floors are laid and the rooms are nearly back to normal, the main bedroom is lovely, newly decorated with new floor, wardrobe doors, facing and skirting. New curtains, rug and bedding to set it off, looking good, just a few finishing touches and that will be that.  The other bedroom, well, let us just say it is getting there.  Still have to arrange some crafty things and finish labelling boxes then it will be down to some serious crafting, I have missed it so much.

My neighbour asked if I could rustle up a card for new born twin boys.  So I had a rummage and found a Kanban kit I bought a while back and it had a twin section which I was able to utilise.  Not much actual crafting in this one, more choosing papers and using some dies.  Something easy to break me in again.

Sorry the photo is very light we had brilliant sunshine for a change
As I said previously it was from a Kanban kit and Spellbinder Grand Dies
Well hopefully that is the end of my doldrums and I really have to get crafting as I have been asked to make a Girl 1st Birthday card for Wednesday, wheweeeee.  Also a Ruby wedding card (the same as one I made previously) for next Sunday, an 18th Birthday card for a girl for 20th July, a 5th Birthday card for a girl for 20th July and a Wedding card for 21 July.  So guess who better get her Mojo back quickly and get her finger out.  Luckily the girl who has ordered the last 4 cards has had a look at ones I have previously made and came with her order, nice one, don't have to do much thinking.
The "Turkish Delights" (namely Patricia and Hazel) should be back from the sunshine and no doubt we will hear from them in due course. Looking forward to hearing about all they got up to or not if they just chilled out.
That's it for now ladies take care and I hope to be back soon.

    This is a lovely card and there is nothing wrong with utilising kits. I have made lots of cards out of Tatty Ted and Forever Friends stuff because people like them so you use what you like gal. I'm sure that the recipient will be overjoyed to receive this smashing card.
    Sorry that your Mum's not been too good but hopefully you will both get your mojos back soon........I think you must at least have the "mo" looking at today's card.
    Thank you so much for the lovely comments you leave for me. Hope to see more blogging from you soon.

  12. Hi Wilma being poorly really is a pain in the proverbial isn't it? I do hope you are all getting much much better now though.

    I am on me hols at the mo but just stopped by to see how you are doing. I think this card really is lovely and looks as if a lot of thought has gone into the design. My hubby even said kits are great fot those quicky cards that we all need from time to time.
