After tidying up my house the last couple of days I decided to treat myself to do a little crafting. Ive managed to do another question as pictured left. Q. What was the last brave thing I did? I realise you probably cant see my answer in full but let me explain it. I dont consider that I do brave things but I really do believe that the bravest thing any of us can do is to actually live life. I try to live life as best as I can and as such I do what some would consider brave things on a regular basis. My life completey changed when I was diagnosed with cervical cancer when I was 28 Im now 39 and I have survived that hard time and come out of the other side a better person and try to life a fuller life than Ive ever done. With the passing of Jade my own experience of cancer has been at the forefront of my mind lately, hense why I thought it was relevant to this question. Things could have gone alot differently for me. Surviving it is only the start of it, it would have been so easy to feel sorry for myself and just given up on life but I didnt and Im so glad I didnt.

......since Ive left a new message. Ive been working so hard, even today is day 8 of a 9 day stint. Work is very busy too right now due to lack of staff so I feel as if Im just treading water and not actually getting anywhere, oh well never mind not long to go till the weekend woo hoo. I dont really have anything of interest to post today either but soon I will have a whole load of craft things with a bit of luck. So hope you all have a good day and I will post something of interest very soon.

Anyway enough of me rambling on, take care and if you do go visit Dalkeith let me know what you think. It seemed like a great meeting place for a docrafts people meet :)

Now the story to my memory on this page is that I took my mum out in Edinburgh on the pretence that we were going for a meal to celebrate getting my new job. During the meal it was funny that she mentioned the theatre and how we hadnt managed to get back to see something else (we previously went to see seven brides for seven brothers) so I took this opportunity to suggest we go to the box office and pick up a leaflet seen as it was only 5 mins away from where we were. So after we finished eating we wondered to the theatre I said " oh mum its busy I wonder what is on? oh look its riverdance we had wanted to see that too, how about we join the queue and find out if there are any tickets left on the off chance, of course failing that we could use these......." it was then I produced the tickets from my bag. Her face was a picture and the show was fantastic, I cant beleive I left it so long to go see it. I was absolutely lost in the emotion of that show.
This second picture is off my question no 7 from the 52 Q & A Im involved with on the docrafts website with my fellow docrafters. The question is what would you do if you knew you could not fail? Well as I love musicals that is most definately the first thing I would love to do if I had the chance to do so. Though I have to admit I would jump at the chance if the opportunity arose to do this I would have no fear of failure as I tend to feel the fear and do it anyway :)
So now that you have learnt a little more about me today I shall bid you a tara for now as Im going to get organised to go out to Dalkeith to visit a coffee shop attached to a craft shop I read about in scrapbook inspirations for this month. I will of course let everyone know how I get on and what mischief I get up to.

Well folks it would appear that the snow is not done yet. I was out with my man for a run in a truck yesterday and today it is snowing again. Oh well never mind I dont mind the snow its makes for great photo opportunities. But I have to say Im looking forward to different kinds of photo opportunities such as the spring flowers coming out. In the mean time I will just have to keep clicking away on some beautiful snowy scenes. Im quite pleased with my photo efforts yesterday as we were still moving when I took my photos and they have actually turned out quite well. Maybe I should have put the setting different to have that feeling of movement in the photos. Oh well, I will try that another time. It was very hard to take photos from a moving truck, the truck was quite springy so I was constantly moving, at least in a car the ride is a little smoother, having said that I think this photo is a good one of the road we drove yesterday. Right time to go get organised for work, Im on a backshift today onto an early tomorrow. No rest for the wicked eh? lol
Take care all, thanks for dropping by.

Morning folks, well here is another nature photo scrapped. I printed a slightly bigger photo and added a small photo of a close up on leaves and fungus added the felt border and some buttons dotted about. I think its simple yet effective. The photo is slotted into the top right and bottom left corner of the matting stripped paper. I like the contrast of the bright green of the main paper and the bright orange and blue stripes of the matting paper behind the photo. I hope all my docraft friends are not fed up seeing the same projects as I upload them into my docrafts gallery too. Well, its my day off today and Im off somewhere special with my mum this evening which Ive organised as a surprise for her :) I hope she is pleased with what I have in mind, of course I will share with you all what happens.
Take care hope you all have a good day.

Hi folks, Im afraid this is just a quick posting. I have been on nights and I woke up later than I had anticipated. It took me a while to unfuzz my head and even then Im not thinking as clearly as i could. I dont like working nights as I really dont cope too well with the lack of sleep. I feel like Im lost in the woods lol hope you like my little pic to the side. It was taken in Palacerigg in Cumbernauld. Well unlike me Im kinda running out of words so I think I will leave it there and catch up again when Im feeling a little more refreshed and up for a better chat.
Hope you are all having fun and I look forward to catching up with you all real soon.
