I am so sad this evening. I miss my beloved Peter so very much and for some reason it is hitting me hard today. I have put a ticker on here for him and it is showing 20 months now, but it doesn't seem to get any easier. Not really. I can distract myself for a time, but it is always there - in the background of my mind, and in the ache of my heart.

I miss you Peter

Latest makes

Phew! It's been hot and humid the past few days, so I have stayed in the relative cool of my craft room and made these bits and pieces
First is a card for an old family friend who needs all the good wishes we can muster.
Then some birthday cards for the CB ladies

and this summery card for a family birthday
and last but not least a birthday book, the idea of which came from this month's CB mag.

Hope you enjoy looking at these as I enjoyed making them. It's been said many times that crafting is good therapy and I think this past week or so I have felt the proof of that!

I am very excited because Sarah (Tiggertastic) has kindly agreed to be a designer for PollyCrafts. There are now some free designs with step by step instructions for some really pretty jewellrey that is simple to make. You can find them at the PollyCrafts site under Design Ideas

Don't forget there are also some free images you can download, and the Fairy Challenge runs until this Friday 8th, with a Fiskar's bowmaker as the prize. There are some beautiful entries and I know it is going to be very difficult to pick a winner! Take a look and see what I mean!

Despite being a poorly chick, it has been a busy ol' time lately as PollyCrafts is taking off slowly but surely, and the entries there for the Fairy challenge are just brilliant. Take a look and see what I mean. It isn't too late to enter - you have until midnight UK time on Friday 8th August.

I have also been busy in my craft room and here are some of my recent creations

Hope you like them :-)
