Umm... hello? Remember me?

Well, after nearly two years away, I just thought I'd stop by to say a little hello! I have no real excuses for my prolonged absence, just an extremely busy life and a very demanding job. I keep thinking things will calm down soon, but alas, no sign of it yet!

You'll be pleased to hear that I have managed some crafting over the past year or so as Alistair and I {finally} got married in April! It was a truly lovely day and one that was made even more wonderful by the fact that we were surrounded by all of our lovely family and friends. They were also extremely sweet and said that all of my homemade touches really "made it". I'll add a few pictures over the coming days to show you what I made for our special day. 

All of the wedding prep really made me realise that I seriously miss my craft room and the creations that used to emerge from it. As a result, I really really want to make more time to play in my poor, neglected craft room. Although, given my prolonged break, I must admit that I'm nervous of a come back as things in the crafting world seem to have changed quite a lot whilst I've been away. Bloggers who were around when I last was, don't seem to be any more and there are lots of new ones on the scene. Blogger itself seems to have had a bit of an update, which completely threw me to start with! I really had to think about how to start a new post! So rusty...! More significantly, the style of people's cards seems to have changed quite a lot. Stamps seem to have been pushed aside, in favour of dies. The cards that I've seen so far look awesome and I'd love to incorporate some of these elements into my creations, but I think I might have a lot of catching up to do!

On that note, I'm now going to spend the afternoon in my craft room *trying* to rediscover my mojo. I promise to share whatever I manage to create, even if it is just a mess! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and for {hopefully} not forgetting about me entirely!
