it's been a while

--- over a month in fact since I last blogged.  Please forgive me.   I am pretty sure I made mention in a previous post, or two, about the fact the organisation I work for has been consulting with "the union" on a restructure.  I'm also pretty sure I have mentioned the outcome.  Well in the past month the job descriptions have been released, and the closing date is tomorrow.   I submitted my application form on Friday, so hopefully things will get a lot less stressy now.  At least until I know the outcome.   I have already said that if I open a letter than says "We are sorry but......." then I will cry.   But I will cross that bridge if I ever gt to it.

I've done a bit of crafting and the like in th past month - but I can't remember exactly what I've done.

so here's a selection

This is a Hunky Dory storybook kit - "Twas the night before Christmas"

This is not a very crisp picture, but the card was rather lovely - it's using Clarity stamps from Barbara Gray and the brayering techniques she is so very good at.

This is using a Jayne Netley Mayhew stamp - it's the black cat, I gave this to my son as his birthday card and he said "it looks like Smokey"   which was the intention all along.   I coloured in the eyes with a pear green promarker.

This one I gave to my mother - it's a Stampavie Sarah Kay stamp. 

This one I gave to my sister - it didn't turn out as wll as I'd hoped - it is, again, using Hunky Dory products.
This is anotheer Rupert card - again from a kit - not too much imaginative creativity going on at the moment
And this is using kanban stamps.

Finally - a cake

And some flapjacks

And that's me done

Catch you later folks xxx

Some stuff about the stuff in the blog


Very new at this blogging lark, so forgive me if I get a bit befuddled. User name is derived from my maiden name of George and the fact that by the time the Olympics are held in the UK in 2012, I will look as if I could compete. And not as a sumo wrestler.

For starters there is only one blog with contain my thoughts, but this might evolve into 3 or 4 when I work out what I'm doing.

In the main it will cover my slimming journey, my quilting exploits, my get fit and stay fit campaign, and my photography. Not forgetting my recent TrollBead obsession.

Should I ever get a lovelife you might get glimpses of that as well.
