BSBP 8 - Introducing Bead Soup 2!

Now that you've met my first (official) partner, Hajer, please allow me to now introduce my second (unofficial) partner, Bridget of!

De-Clutter 2014 - Week 17

After three weeks of having all my brood (including big ol' hairy boy) all at home I am a wee bit weary.

It feels like I am a one-person fast food outlet, constantly cooking to the tune of "Mum, I'm so hungry my tummy is folding up".

And when not on kitchen duty I am entertainment manager for both the small people AND the large hairy one. All of whom struggle to entertain themselves without my input. Apparently none of them can even watch TV unless I am sat watching it with them. Gah!

JDK's 7th Do Over Challenge Reveal

Welcome to Jeannie K Dukic's 7th Do Over Challenge!

Devised and hosted by Jeannie, we are all sent a piece of jewellery, handmade by Jeannie herself, that she considers tired or boring. It is our job to make-over that piece into something splendiferous.

Focus On Life - Week 16

Week Sixteen : A moment best captured in black and white.

I've missed a few weeks due to school holidays, but while we were put and about we found this wonderfully gothic looking building, just crying out to be spookified in black and white.


Almost looks like a glowing white figure in the bottom left window, very eerie.
