Chill Out Time

Once again, it has been ages since I last blogged - two weeks to be precise. Far too long. Why does work have to get in the way? Not this week it's not anyway, as I am on my October holiday although have been pretty exhausted most of it so far and have been taking it easy for once. The last three weeks have definitely caught up with me big time and on Friday, Saturday and Sunday I was literally on my knees. Anyway, feeling bit better now apart from having a dreadful cold (aaargh) and have been catching up with everyones blogs and trying to ignite some inspiration. I'm sitting tonight colouring some fab new stamps I bought from Spiral Whisper by the terrific designers Christine Dark and Janet Roberts and can't wait to get creative with them. I admire their work constantly and I just had to make a start with collecting some of them, I have many more on my wish list! I can hear Santa calling. I also bought the "Royal Mail" Penny Black stamp and have been busy inking that up too - I couldn't resist as I have seen this stamp so often when blog hopping recently. I had planned to have more Christmas cards made by now but same old story - plans don't happen as I want them to!

I recently took part in a Magnolia swap recently on Splitcoast Stampers which was organised by my SBS sister Monica and received lots of great images a few weeks ago. Thanks Monica! I'm looking forward to having a play with those too and maybe getting a scrapbook page or two completed too!

I love receiving new images to play with, well don't we all? Just wondering if there are any crafters out there who would like to participate in a wee swap? Let me know if you do!

Hope to post again tomorrow! Here's hoping!

Hi Lainy - Good to see you blogging :) (I've become quite an addict!)
Not so good you've got the cold...I've had it & its taking ages to leave me & now Bobby & the boys have got it too! :(
Thanks for your comments on Robbie's birthday post. Boys are both enjoying the October break & I am too. (Especially getting a lie in!)
Good to read you are enjoying your new stamps :)
I don't have any good stamps to swap but.....I could send you Cuttlebug die cut outs & embossed papers in exchange for some of your stamped images?
Let me know - Mar x

Hi Lainy, thanks for dropping by my blog and for your really kind comments about my blog, I started my blog at the beginning of the month and I've had so much fun already with it lol! Everyone has been so nice and I feel like I've formed a set of good friends already, I love it! Anyway, I would love to do an image swap with you, I've only ever done one and then DC decided that they didn't want members doing it anymore, booo hisss lol. I've got quite few magnolias, penny black etc, so just let me know what you would like and we can sort it out.

Speak soon
Hugs Tab xxx

Hi Lainy, sorry to hear you've been feeling so shattered and that's probably why you got the cold. Hope you're feeling better anyway and back to crafting. I read that you bought some SW stamps, WOW! I'm honoured that you'd choose to buy mine and really hope you enjoy them. Janet's are so gorgeous, I know you'll enjoy inking them up too. Sounds like you have lots to keep you busy. Take care of yourself, hugs, Chris xxx
