Sorry things uploaded in a random fashion..  guess that's what happens when you're uploading too many things at the one time lol

Love Loz xxx 

Snow time

Managed to get some inked ones made too lol.  


So sweet

He's had a wee hair cut and was last weighed 3 weeks ago when he had dropped to 13.4kg.  Looking forward to next week's weigh in when it's hopefully more good news.  


Poor Nero

When a little dog is lost locally and you spend time with the owners searching endlessly to find their fur baby one thing can lead to another..  

P.s. Nero is still missing as of today 

New addition

On the 9th of March we brought this wee fella in to our lives thanks to The Red Foundation.   

He's almost 5 and extremely overweight.   He should weigh approx 7kg and when we got him he was a hefty 13.7kg.   Lots of hard work over the coming months to get this wee fella back in shape so he can fully enjoy his life.  



Speed crafting

When you're short on time for getting your Christmas cards made, pull out dies and some glitter card and alternate them lol.

Engagement time

Card made for a friend's daughter on her engagement day.   Nothing better than the smell of love in the air.   Wishing Diane and Katie a lifetime of happiness.  


Exciting time..

When you're booked to go to Britain's strongest man and ask your customer if he can make you a personalised t-shirt to wear..   thank you Tom Elliott.  


What a surprise

Had a lovely surprise last week with an unexpected delivery from wonderful step daughter and son in law.   Bless her..  she knew I'd been really poorly but had helped look after her kitty cat who'd had recent surgery whilst she was on holiday.   As I told her.. that's what wicked step mum's are for lol.   

Bright colours certainly cheered me up.  



So being on holiday and ill means you have to behave and take it easy.   Thanks to these goodies that's exactly what I done.   

Dylusions Dyary

Started off with the intentions of stamping and colouring but opened my dyary instead and ended up colouring some of the pre composed images instead lol.   Plenty more to do in this one and even better I have another with completely different images to start on after this one.   Life is good at times lol.

Getting ready to go watch the men..  fantastic event and can't wait for next time.   All courtesy of my hubby.  


Spruce up

Dads wreath was in need of a spruce up so added in some new berries and mistletoe this year..  think it will be a change of ribbon next time.

Sad day

Sadly on December 17th my beautiful furry friend Smithy passed away in my arms and took a huge piece of my heart along with him.   He was unique in every sense of the world and will never be forgotten and will always have a very special place in my heart.   Needless to say Christmas was a quiet solemn day as we didn't feel like celebrating very much.  

Love you forever Smithy man xxxxx

Small gesture

Christmas always sees a trip to the homeless unit in Glasgow to drop off cards and presents.  June who I work with is always a trooper when it comes to giving me loads of stuff for them too.  This year it was almost equivalent to a black bin bag of crochet and I honestly forget how many cards but it was treble figures anyway.   This is me working my way through 100 quick cards for them too.  

Please never forget the homeless especially at Christmas as we know not what their reasons are for being on the streets and many will be thinking of their loved ones.

Craft World workshop 

December we had a fabulous group of ladies booked a workshop as a pre Christmas treat.  

When you have 24 ladies split between 2 45 minute workshops and you want to include a fun element..  there's only one thing for it..  It's a Milly and Molly day of painting and accessorising lol.  

Fabulous group of very naughty fun filled ladies.

Cocktails with the girls

Had a lovely catch up with 2 of my oldest friends pre christmas.   Life so often gets in the way and it's hard to match schedules.   Gorgeous meal followed by a trip to the local cocktail bar and laughter with beautiful friends.

Workshop card #1

When you have a workshop booked for 19 ladies..  you have a 3 hour window which includes stopping for tea, coffee and cake (delicious home baking may I add) and you decide to push them to make 4 cards in that time.   Amazing bunch of ladies who always make me smile when I go to visit them and make me feel so welcome.
