Hey hey it's Friday!!!

And another week is over! And it's November!!
And were the hell has this year gone??
We have the kids down tonight for the weekend, and it's going to be quite busy!
Tomorrow starts with grocery shopping and I am hoping to get everyone up relatively early to make a start so we can miss the crowds!!
I have a hair appointment in the afternoon :)
And then it's our fireworks party.
Now in general I am not a huge fan of fireworks, they are too loud and they scare the animals. But once a year Stuart has the chance to act like a kid and spend far too much money!!
Who am I to stand in his way??
Sunday is Rebeccas horse riding lesson.
And hopefully we will make a start on the new decking!!
IACW update
Well I have to say it's been absolutely amazing to see so many people taking up the
Scrap Your Boobies Challenge.
And seeing all the beautiful LOs has reminded me what the scrapping is all about!!
Thanks to all of you for your donations so far, the Just Giving page is available until the end of December and it would be awesome to double what we hoped to raise!!
A *huge* thanks to all the sponsors for your prizes!!
And of course a *massive* thanks to all the IACW girls for their organisation and hard work! Love you all so much!

I've been tagged :)

By the lovely Andrea!
1. If you could have £100 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?
Blossoms, ribbon, ‘anything’ MM metal , scenic route papers :)
2. If you had to choose between using only stamps or rubons, which would you choose?
Definatly stamps!
3. If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts but could only do one for a whole year...which would you do?
Has to be layouts!! I have too many photos that need scrapping to spend a year doing cards only!
4. Would you rather own a scrapbooking store or have your own scrapping room at home...(can't have both he he he)
My own scrapping room. BUT it must be big enough to have 3 walls of IKEA shelving. A big desk so I can leave my sewing machines, cricut and photo printer permanently set up. A space for my laptop and printer (A3!!) And a large raised centre table so I can scrap standing up.
5. And last but not least, what is your CURRENT cardmaking or scrapping style.
I like to think it’s a bit shabby and eclectic. I am learning to mix paper lines, mix brown and black ink on a page :o And I’m brave enough to go to the extremes, either loads of white space, or a very full page :)
I'm tagging in return
Don't forget to visit It's a Creative World to be in line to win a prize!!

PS, I think I still have another tag in my drafts, from Sue. Sorry hun, I did have all intentions of posting it ages ago, but forgot about it!!

Finding the balance

Boy it's been a long time since I blogged!! Yet again I am finding the balance between home life, crafting, work and blogging a bit tough to get right.
But i'm working on it and hopefully things will get into a routine soon enough.
Work is great and I am loving being back in a challenging roll again.
Home life is always good! We have been busy preparing the garden for winter, clearing the beds and planting bulbs. We are also doing some garden renovations which is very hard work, but the improvement will be so worth the effort.
My crafting life is a busy one! IACW has kept me busy this month, with loads of LO classes and of course the Scrap Your Boobies challenge. I am so overwhelmed at the response we have received, and so proud of the scrapping community that have got behind us and taken up the challenge.
As of this morning we have reached our fundraising target and hope to double it by the end of December.
The LOs we have received so far are all so beautiful.
So alas my blogging life has taken a back seat and this is why I have not updated for so long. I will be working on how to get a better balance to my life but if anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them!!
So today over at IACW we have a LO class......scrapping from a sketch.
We feature Pencil Lines and the loves Anna, who had the idea for the inspirational sketch blog.
We were even given an exclusive Creative World sketch!!
Here is a LO I created with it, pop over the blog to see the other LOs.

Here's to better blogging days and laods more yummy stuff to come!
