Long time ......

Well as you can see my page needs updating. It's been a long time since I've been on here or entered any competitions. I go to Stamping up classes every other month and have grown to love there products. I have my lovely new craft room but don't seem to be making full use of it. Life in general has been so so busy. Looking forward to making some new designs :)

Thought of the week

Do not focus on things you cannot control - like the weather or others.
Successful people don't waste time on what they can't control.

What a funny year

Well as you can probably see I have lost contact with my card making and crafting. I have'nt done anything since feb. I am trying to motivate myself to get back into it. I have been watching the new channel on telly and also been to my card class which I have'nt done with one thing and another since June. I get notions come to me but don't put them into action. I really need a push from somewhere as I do want to start again. Well hope evryone elses crafting is going good xx

My life seems to be very busy at the moment and all my free time I'm either drawing, painting or crafting. Hence why I'm not very consistant on here. Well I wish you all well and leave you some pic's of my holiday.

New cards

Hi everyone
I just want to add a few of my new cards which are ones I have made for a little shop I supply. Because its a small village shop they like to keep the price low. So I try to make reasonably quick cards for this.
Still everyone of my cards is a different one, I never make two cards alike. If you want to see any others I have uploaded some on the trimcraft site under cornishmaidsu.
Take care all and have a great weekend xx

Hi everyone, I'm so busy

Hi I just want to say hello to all my blogging friends and add a few of my new cards. I am busy preparing cards for local craft fair and the shop I supply. Also trying to keep up with the housework (boring) and entertaining family. Oh and my son had to go to school dressed up for book day at school. They are not allowed to hire, just use stuff from home.

This is a pic of my son as puss in boots.

Have a great weekend all Su x

Amazing Day ...

Just thought I would let you know I had the most wonerful and special day yesterday as I was at the birth of my friends baby. I just adore babies anyway and after having 5 of my own it was so nice to be there and support the family. My first niece was born a month ago today and I was with her before she was 24 hours old but to be there for the birth of this wonderful new life was amazing.
This is a pic I took just after with his sister who is 4 in Oct.

My Cornwall .... in dots

Just thought I would let you see something new I tried. Please feel free to leave any comments on what you think. Thank you Su x

This is one of my favourite ones of a round houe which can be found at Veryan.
Veryan is most famous for its nineteenth century thatched Round Houses There are five in all, two pairs of which stand at each end of the village and another in the centre. They were originally built by a missionary named Reverend Jeremiah Trist for his daughters. In a round house there are no corners where the devil can hide. A crucifix on the top of each one adds extra protection!

A engine house

This is a Celtic cross also found in Cornwall.

My Cornwall ....

This is of Lanyon Quoit, Cornwalls most famous quoit also near Penzance.

This is men-an-tol which is near Penzance.

Here are a couple of engine houses which you can find dotted all over Cornwall the
1st is a dotted one and the second is a sketched one.

F is for ... Challenge card

Hi this is for the ABC challenge which is F for fairies. I love making fairy and fantasy cards as I think they always have a bit of charm about them.
I have added some glitz to there wings to give a bit more of a translucent effect and I think the colours to this card work well together. Happy for any comments Thanks Su xx
