I think my memory is shot! lol

Right I know that I promised weekly updates on both my blogs, but so many things have been happening at once that I always seem to forget! Still I am taking a year out from studying and shall use the time to get some serious crafting done, well in theory at least *chuckles*
I have taken classes in basic crochet, the two projects that I have finished so far might be small but to say they are the first times working from a pattern I am pretty chuffed with them!

I am hoping to complete a couple more and actually get some more done on the sampler for my parents over the Easter period. Hhhm the road to hell is paved with good intentions! lol!
Still my kids are now old enough to fend pretty much for themselves, and I am managing to get a certain amount of time for myself now =)

This is the card that I made for my daughter, she turned 15 the 21st of March... Where on earth does the time go?
She is a huge fan of Supernatural, especially Sam Winchester!
I have been doing other bits but haven't yet put the pics in the computer, I am not busy today so maybe I will get around to it? Hhhmm I am not going to make any promises!

Just a quick note...

Just thought that I would post my latest 2 cards!

This first one was made for my close friend Sarah. She adores anything butterfly related so decided this was the best option for her, simple decoupage, with the sheet having printed the stages so very quick to do simply following the stages on the sheet. I very rarely do this type of decoupage these days as I prefer to print pictures a few times and actually decide for my self which parts need to be raised! But that is me for you, I have to be the one in control! lol... Typical for a Leo though. I haven't got pics on the laptop of my cross stitching progress. So hopefully tomorrow I can sort the update on my stitching! That is if I actually remember of course...
This is a card which I did for Karen, my roomie in London, as it was her birthday a few days after the event, and she was meeting James for the first time ever I felt a James card was in order! And being a proud Brit I chose the picture from his role in Torchwood as Capt. John Hart.

Thats all for today folks!
