Wow, it's been a long time......

Crikey, it really has been a long time since I last posted, hasn't it? I haven't really got a lot of excuses I'm afraid, just busy busy busy! Since my last post, I've had a birthday, been on holiday, been on a little mini break to a Michelin starred restaurant (I know, 2 trips away, very greedy!), have been to the gym about a million times, have drooled over Eclipse (twice!), have had swanky acrylic nails put on, and have bid a sad farewell to my most favouritest group of 3rd year students at work. Despite the last one on that list, all in all, I've had a lovely time :o)  

However, the only thing I haven't been doing is lots of crafting! It's weird... when I actually sit down to make a card, I really enjoy it and things fall together pretty effortlessly. So, it would seem that the mojo is completely fine. But, have I had any desire to actually sit down and make a card? No. And unfortunately, I've had even less desire to do any blogging. Which is probably why I've not updated this little baby for nearly 2 months even though I've had things to show you.....!

So, I've decided enough is enough, I'm going to get myself back in the habit! The plan is that I'm going to try and make my cards as and when I can but then sit down on a Sunday night and write up and schedule the whole weeks posts all in one go. That way, things should appear a bit more regularly. That's the plan anyway....!

As things have calmed down a little at work due to the summer vacation, I'm also going to try to get round your blogs more regularly to say hello. I've not visited for months and that just feels so wrong! I miss you guys!

I'm also going to spruce things up around here a little. I'm thinking: New Look, New Start :o)

So anyway, enough of my waffling. Ali has a competition tonight so I get some time to do some crafting. I shall be back to see you tomorrow with whatever I manage to come up with!

Hi Stacey. I have really missed you and am so glad to see you back. Was starting to get worried about you! I've been through a similar thing recently and am just starting to get back into the swing of things. I think sometimes a break from crafting/blogging does us good! Looking forward to seeing some of your new creations!
Big hugs, Vicky ~x~

Hey Stacey! I completely understand what you're going through. I kinda went through a hiatus myself not too long ago but it is fun to be back stamping and blogging regulary now. Glad to see you back! Missed seeing your creations!

YEY!!! I thought we'd lost you forever! I know exactly what you mean about blogging, I had the exact same thing around the time we called it a day on the CCC blog, but I'm glad you're back in the swing of things! And belated Happy Birthday wishes too! I hope you had a lovely day!

Love Beth xx

Hi Hun, it's so good to see you back!! I was thinking about you the other day and wondering whether you had a good birthday and break with Ali.
I love the new look blog, so fab!! I do know what you mean about blogging and crafting and have exactly the same feelings as you. I think we've all OD'd slightly on the blogging world and with all the challenges out there you kind of stop enjoying it all because it feels like there is much pressure.
Hope to see you out and about hun.

xx :0)
