I decided to put the photos from our trip to Bristol last Summer in this album - we followed part of the trail around the city for Gromit Unleashed - 80 sculptures decorated by famous people and large companies to support the Bristol Children's Hospital - we managed to find 33 over the 3 days we spent in the area.

It's been another very busy week here with a spur of the moment trip to Halifax on Monday - finally we found a car Darran has spent 6 months looking for?! Today we are going to be driving back to Halifax to collect it after our weekly drive to Durham for Philip to continue with his conductive education at Heel and Toe. Now where to park my new car, ah yes the back of the car park where there is plenty of space, as it's much bigger than the 7 seater I currently drive???
A trip to Newcastle on Wednesday for an appointment with Philip with a quick visit to the Disney store at the Metrocentre. Then Philip spent a lovely afternoon visiting his old friends and teachers at his previous primary school - we decided the time was right to move Philip to a new school in the summer where he can continue mainstream education but with the additional support he requires for his disability and although it was heart wrenching at the time things have worked out well. Lucy left at the same time to move up to secondary school so there were a lot of tears shed but more about that another day as I have some lovely photos I would like to scrap.

I know it has been a long time since I last did anything with my blog but I needed to take a break, re-evaluate how I was using my time and decide where I wanted to go.
Since I started my blog many things have changed and I needed to accept that sometimes it is OK to admit that I can't do everything, no matter how I tried many days I felt like I was going around in circles getting no where - today as I looked up a tutorial I made for a project I created last year I realised why I wrote this blog, it was my love of beautiful craft projects.
So where are they I hear you ask?! I have been continuing with my Stampin' Up! business and classes although on a much smaller scale than before and I have done some crafting but mostly without taking time to photograph projects before they were given away as often they were for commissioned orders. I have now completed almost everything that was outstanding and spent some time using some fabulous new products available soon from Stampin' Up! so I plan to share some projects again later this week as I already have a basket full on my desk!
I'm not sure how often I will be posting yet but I do plan to keep my blog updated on a regular basis with inspiring projects too and I will be sharing the dates for my up-coming classes, so if you are local contact me and come along - if you are too far away, why not order a class kit with full instructions included to make the projects at home.
