Well hello there crafters and friends and welcome to my brand new blog .... I shall try not to waffle however , those whom know me well, all know this is hard for me to not waffle and to stay on point! I decided that being a mum, wife, gran , dog owner, business owner, youtuber,  Stampin' Up! demonstrator and pokemon hunter wasn't quite enough so thought I should add blogging to my list ... what was I thinking !!??? .  Please click the follow button to visit regularly and maybe I can waffle to you all on regular basis. All the links to my other things are in the right hand side bar ... The Zibbet link will take you to my new online store ...however... its not quite ready yet ... watch this space and my other social media for updates. The Stampin Up link is there and my Youtube so book mark my blog and you need never be without my links again ... phew bet thats saved your day !

Sooooooo what does one do on a blog ?? hmmm ...well my intention is to give a daily post where I have internet access and post photos of my work special offers in my shop , challenges and special give aways. I am also going to be posting pictures of projects that maybe little to long to film without boring everyone within an inch of their lives .

So what have I been doing this week ? I hear you ask .. . oh you didn't ask well I shall tell you anyway. I have been planning ahead setting some goals one being to reach Bronze Elite with Stampin up by my birthday in late August. Im also pushing to grow my youtube channel my goal here to reach 4,000 subscribers by the end of July .... we can do this its easy ...she says ! hmmm well maybe not so easy. But what is my main goal ? the golden chalice of which I seek to conquer ...... I shall tell you ... to make a card.  Yes not much to ask just simple card which has not taken me three weeks to think up and which I have not had to steal ...sorry BORROW from pinterest ... thats what I want what I really really want zig a zig ahhhh . Oh and in all honesty don't set your watches as to the time of blog postings ... I really am not that organised it can be a surprise like a little gift in your inbox .. or not , whichever ha ha ha ha ha . I really do waffle crikey !. so if your after updates on the updates of living the crafty life ... hit the follow button and I shall waffle in your eyes ... yes eyes as your reading not listening ... on a daily basis . What more could you want .. oh Is this the bit where I post a picture of some random project ok let me see how I do that ?????
Ahhh see I managed it . So here is a shabby chic flower I created this morning . It was made using several techniques including a gathered flower base and a folded muslin flower layered on top with a lovely tassel bottom ... Its actually not my favourite but it was on my desktop so easy to post ... hey Im honest Im not much cop at this blogging lark . However , like everything else in my life I shall learn and I shall conquer .

Tune in tomorrow for another episode of ..does she actually know what she's doing ???? or is she telling us all this again we heard already ....bye for now xxxxx A

  45. Beautiful Blog Amanda :) You did well at posting that picture :) I will have to see how this works, and if it notifies me of your new blogs, I'm so computer illiterate and not really sure that I want to change that, but your blog is worth trying it, lol :) and my name came up as an old one,(and I don't know how to change it) so if you don't know who this is you are going to just have to guess, I hope you have an Outstanding Day :)
