scared myself away....

Lol... feels like I scared myself away anyway!

Since the marathon session last week when I switched all this over to layout and stuff, I haven't been back. But plenty has happened. Not a lot of crafting i'll admit. But plenty of other stuff.

Like - I broke my camera. End of the world for me...

Did I break the big clumsy fuji S5500 which I never use...? Oh No, of course I didn't... I broke my sexy lil baby F30 which I love love love.

hmm... LovED. That would be past tense now :-(

Life is crap.
In fact it's worse than crap because we have no money to replace it, and i'm gutted beyond belief. I just can't tell you how sad I am.

Anyway. I finally managed to put together my mojo LO last night but I had no heart to do anything really, and it turned out worse than I even thought it would. There are however, some great layouts on the site. Mine just isn't one of them.



And Sandies sketch

The original by Ronda Palazzari is actually fab - very different and quite quirky. You can check out her work here

So what else?

Well, Wednesday was the anniversary of my little ma's passing away. I can't believe so many years have gone by now, and yet I still miss her everyday. This year was the first time i've gone to the grave all alone to lay flowers and it was very sad. Very lonely, and not something you really want to do on your own. But I did take a picture of the flowers on my phone to send to my sister - before I found out she hasn't yet set her phone up for multi media msgs!! So Sanna, this pic is for you.



You have NO idea how much time and trouble this has been setting it up so I could upload from phone to PC. Not something i've ever done before so quite up my own butt now for managing it at all!

Thanks to Cleo Crafts for the fantastic service this week - I love my Bo Bunny family book, maybe I'll make a start on that today and try and cheer myself up :-)




Ok, off to stamp a LOT of images - I'm hosting a stamped journalling block swap over on Craft Diner, and need to get my backside in gear. Now!

Have a happy weekend folks - no sense everyone being miserable!

so sorry about your camera :( :( Is there no way it can be fixed??
((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))
I know how you feel about your mum. Mine died the same year and her ashes are in my sons grave. I can go with other people but when i am alone , especially in the autumn/winter its awful.
BTW your LO is fab :) ..I just did a DT one that i thought was really awful ( i still don't like it) but a few of the DT members had said its great, yet the one i really liked, no one has commented on..so don't worry.
Will go check out the diner xxx

Sorry about your camera Jakey. Can you not claim for it on your house contents insurance. DH dropped his and we had it replaced by our insurance co.
I know how you feel about your Mum too. My Mum died 37 years ago and believe me I still miss her.
Hope next week is a better week for you hun.
Keep smiling.

What a bummer but you can claim depending on the insurance policy you have. If you are real lucky you might have new for old which will cover a new replacement & not just the money to replace including wear & tear. Read you policy book.

Hugs to for your mum's anniversary. I know just how you feel.{{hugs}}

ohhh major bummer about the camera. I totally understand about being so sad. The layout is so adorable. I love the fun colors and the arrows. Sorry for your loss, it must be so hard at times, no matter how long it has been.
