Long Time

Hi, well it has been absolutely ages since Ive been on here and have been told that I must pick up where I left off, with some blog candy!!  Firstly I want to apologise for being away for so long.  Life has been so very hectic. I had quite forgotten what it was like to have to work full time and run a home!  It leaves me with very little time to indulge in my favourite past times  - crafting and my Oriflame.  I have decided that this month I am going to spend some money on some much needed crafty bits and I think Im going to get some Spellbinder dies for my Grand Calibur machine and some beautiful stamps from Lili of the Valley.  So watch this space for some of my creations!!! Ha ha
My other passion being my Oriflame beauty products, well I was really upset that I was too poorly to go to the annual event in Coventry earlier this month because I was sooo looking forward to what is going to be coming soon to Oriflame.  Oriflame products really are classy and you really should give them a try.
For those of you who have never tried any of their stuff, I think I will start the year with an Oriflame giveaway.  I will get this posted on the site by this weekend, so remember to pop back and enter.
What I plan to do in future is to have alternate giveaways with craft stuff one week  and Oriflame the next.

I have lots of things I want to do this year so lets hope that I can find the time to do them. The first thing that I really must do is to get my naughty (not a puppy anymore) dog more training!! She is still a complete pain in the backside!!  
I want to learn how to sew properly.
I want to meet like minded crafters (or Oriflame consultants) who live this way to meet and have some crafting sessions and coffee (and cake!!).
Anyway, I will see you all at the weekend with details of the giveaway.

Hi everyone
Im so glad to see that people are interested in entering my first blog giveaway!  I hope that the winner will enjoy using these quality products. I have not blogged for a while as I started my new job two weeks ago and my feet haven't touched the ground!  I have also been trying to set up my very own web site for my Oriflame products, which you can view on  Any comments?  I have also been asked to make 14 cards for  the competition winners at a bowls club, so I have been spending time designing these.  AND as you know, I have a very naughty 16 month old Dobermann who also takes up my time!  Anyway, I am hoping to show you more card designs and lots more Oriflame cosmetic reviews in the coming months.  I will also be doing some craft giveaways as well as  REGULAR Oriflame giveaways. So try and stick it out with me!!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend and speak to you real soon xxxx
