Hello and Welcome...

Hello & Welcome...My name is Anne-Marie, I am a full-time administration assistant for a local housing association, I have a husband, two adult sons, and a mad dog named Fritz. I spend any spare minute crafting (although there are never enough spare minutes)...anything from making cards, papercrafts, knitting, crochet, baking and making jams, curds etc. I also enjoy growing my own fruit/veg in my greenhouse/garden.

I hope I will post something that may be of interest to you.

Happy New Year

I'd like to wish you all a very Happy New Year, my very best wishes for a happy, healthy and fabulously crafty 2014!!

I've started off my crafty new year by making some cupcakes this morning to take to my parents as we were invited for lunch.  Went down a treat and everyone enjoyed them. 

Although did have a mishap on the way out, the front door was open and because it was windy it blew the living room door into my arm and knocked the container the cakes were in so half of them fell over and the icing was smudged, but never mind they were still enjoyed :)  They looked like this before the mishap...

They all have pink butter cream,  half have been sprayed with silver shimmer spray and half with gold shimmer spray.

Will be back in my craft room tomorrow as I have a few cards to make.

But for now I'm going to chill in my pjs on the sofa and watch the soaps.

Thanks for popping in.  Bye for now, Love & Best Wishes Anne-Marie xx
