Returning to Blogging!!

Hello Everyone!!

After a long break from Blogging (and crafting) I have decided to get back into card challenges. I will probably be very rusty but it will be fun starting over again I'm sure!!

As I haven't posted for well over a year I thought I would update you on what I've been up to. Well firstly this little precious girl was born. My best friend's little girl Chloe became my Goddaughter and she is adorable!! This is us on her Christening day.

And here is me and my not-so-little-anymore man. Dylan is now 9 and I am so proud of what a lovely boy he continues to be. He has a brilliant sense of humour and we spend so much time laughing!! 

Last year was tough as I lost 3 family members. The first being my brother, then my uncle and finally my partner's Grandad. When these things happen you start to re-evaluate your life and what's really important. I began to research simple living and decluttering and gave away so many of my belongings. I can't tell you how less stressed I feel as a consequence... it really is liberating!!

I would say that I now have about 20% of the craft stash I used to have. A lot I donated to my partner's mums' WI group, some went to charity and a lot I sold. So here I am deciding that this craft stash which I have kept (which I couldn't bear to part with) now needs to get used!! 

I look forward to creating again and I hope you'll come to visit me and see what I've been creating.

Love and hugs

Becky xx
