- suescraftstuff:- I try to put all sorts of things into order in a scrapbook. mainly family. I Started scrapbooking in 2009 and now am totally addicted. Just recently I started making a few cards, mainly for friends and family, I really enjoy doing this, but there is such a lot more to learn. currently I am learning to use promarkers, they're fantastic!!... I have a cricut cutting machine, but like to embellish with different mediums rather than just the cricut cutouts. I love lace and flowers, also distressing and embossing. This is just one of my many hobbies I've had over the years, a big part of it was woodcraft and painting.The woodcraft bit I got from my dad, him and my mum are my all time favourite people, my dad was so kind and clever, dad, I miss you, because of him I still dabble in the woodwork a bit too. But I am loving putting all my photo's into a scrapbook, and lately making cards, to keep and remember everone in a much more interesting way than a normal photo album .hopefully it will be passed on in later years.

A Wallhanging I made with bits and pieces from my stash. wooden hearts, a 'log cabin' made from twigs from my local park, small mirrored squares edged with leading, some plaited scraps, a 'wreath' with mulberry flowers on, some wooden hoops with flowers, all hung from a scrap twig.

My dear Grandaughter Eloise, with one of her many many expressions, she is just sooooo funny now, 1yr 7months old. she is learning new things daily, I am amazed at how I can see her change from month to month, and yet can't remember how her mum Amy or her uncle Steve were at her age. I suppose the tiredness and the worry surpassed all the little things, or it was such a long time ago it's simply that I can't remember. They always say that you appreciate your grandchildren more than your own children. I do in a way that I am not as tired. But my own children have grown to be such amazing people that I appreciate and am proud of them more than they will ever know.
This is Harvey's first Bicycle, a 'balance' bike. such a good idea, when he's gotten used to this he'll be off on a 'real' bike, no probelm. and Zach, such a little smiler, such lovely natured little boys.
