No Crafting for an Eternity ...

... Apart from this! My very first dip into the life of a circle journaller. Yes I know that is n't a real word!

Real life has taken over here and I have misplaced my MOJO. I aCJ9m sooooo glad I signed up for the circle journal before stuff started happening though! Otherwise I doubt I would have even done this!

It is not all bad stuff  ... my baby is getting CJ7 married ... to the nicest guy ever and I am chuffed to bits. The wedding fairs and shopping have already started ... the venue is booked ... a castle ... all very exciting!

On the downside I have been made redundant after 25 years with the same company ... not the end of the world I know ... but a bit of a shock to the system all the same! What to do now?

CJ8 Back to the CJ ... I was delighted with my Claudine Hellmuth and Stitchel's flowers vintage cover ... the picture does n't really do it justice ... but I love it and that is the main thing!

That got posted off on the 1st of February 2009 and should be back home before the end of the year.

The other sneaky peaks are part of the book that I posted off yesterday ... the theme of this one was vintage Christmas and I loved working on it.

Hopefully I won't be so long in between posts next time ... Thank you for sticking with me through my dry spell guys.

Linda, it is so good to see you post. It has been too long...but I know things have been tough lately. Your MOJO will come back...give it time. I think doing the circle journal will help you. Love what you have shown!! Congrats on your baby getting married. Have fun with it!

Sorry Linda, just read the post properly instead of skimming and am gutted for you about the redundancy. I am 22 years with the bank and we expect redundancies to be not too far in the future. May another door open for you soon. Congrats too on the wedding, how exciting
