Bloody hormones!!!!!

Why are we cursed with hormones!!!!

Ok so it has been a while since I was last on here! I have been feeling a little low lately, and just havent been able to write anything interesting thats going on! I think my hormones have taken over my entire body and have been contoling me!!!!- Arrrrggggghhhh bloody things!!! I think they must be like lil aliens in my body telling me to be a grumpy cow, or screaming banshee, or a howling baby- why do these things take so much contol over me???????? Had some tests done at the docs and it looks like I have PSOS, but it is strange as I have 2ce as many periods as normal and usually you have less with PCOS - I am telling you its the hormones!!!!!!!!

OK Rant over!!!!

I have not been doing much scrapping the last few weeks, but have been sewing lil tree decorations as lil pressies. I have also been making lil buttons out of fimo- lil gingerbread ones- they are sooo cute (even if I do say so myself!!)
Here is the class I taught at the MODSCRAPS crop

It is birthday month in our house Evans was yesterday, then Aerons on the 23rd- and all I can think about is presents and parties!!!

We went to the ss great britain a few weeks back and I think I must have just walked round with the camera infront of my face!! Here are some pics!!

Right I am going to call it a night

OMG a whole week has passed!!!!

I cant believe it has been a week since I was last on here!!!
Talk about a hectic week!! Jamews had the week off work so we finallly switcvhed the boys bedrooms around!!! It took all week as they both had to be decorated!! But they looookk FAB!!! i am so pleased with them and so are the boys. Aeron and Evan have been playing so wel together with their toys and Calann finallly got his hamster!!! It is lovely to see them so keen in keeping their rooms nice!! James built a fantasic shelving unit for the boys toys will post a pic soon. I made some tiebacks but I cant find any D rings anywhere- any ideas??

I am putting together the advent swap pressies for someone- i just hope she will like it all!! This is such a good idea as I dont get many presseis for xmas and its nice to get something from people who "get" scrapbooking!!!
Anyway back to it

Sunday, 4 November 2007

Well my weekend has been spent clearing the boys bedrooms ready to swap them around!!! Calann is now going to live in the box room and Evan and Aeron are now going to share!! We took them to home base and they chose their own colours Calann chose a very pale green and beigey kinda calico curtains. Aeron chose a pale blue which is great as theroom is quite dark as it is at the back of the house! Aeron said he wanted their bedroom to be pirate themed- sounds fab to me!! I am going to frame my ahoy there layout and put it up in their room. Cal hasnt said what he wanted but he still loves dragons so maybe I will make a dragon layout for him!!

We had a fab time last night at a friend Ruths who put on a fantastic fireworks party, although I didnt get to see many as Evan was quite scared!!! She had a FANTASTIC spread of food, there was something for everyone!!! The boys had a fab time pinching sausages and pieces of salami!! Evan was rather tired and stropy at times while we were there!! So we left around 10 and they fell asleep in the back of the car!!

Oh I have been meaning to put up this months scrapstudios dt stuff on here

This layout is about my friend Sarah- she is into scrapbooking too!! She had been saying for ages that she needed some photos for her layouts and I said I could take a couple of her. So as she came around I spotted these beautiful leaves in the lane next to my house and took some photos there. Amazingly her top matched the whole scene!!!

I was so pleased with all the buttons that came with this kit- I just had to put them to good use!!

Annonymous- sorry I didnt see that thread!! So are you sending to me?? hmm I will have to be a good girl now!!

Halloween is always a celebrated time in our house - possibly (by me) more so than xmas!!! We dressed up , made a k9 costume for the cat, carved a pumpkin and walked the streets trick or treating!!!! Great fun!!!
I have finished a layout I have been working on- its called mad house

- demonstrating the chaotic jarvis household!!! I have wanted these Elsie papers for ages and was so pleased when I got the Red velvet kit with these Jack and Abby papers in!! But something that I have just noticed Does Calann look like he is hanging from the tree??? He is meant to be climbing it!!! Let me know if you think I need to rearange it!

My online class is with Mandy, but she e-mailed me and said she been ill, but I am sure she will post it up on her website as soon as she can!

Last comment

I am so curious who sent the last comment??
Its my birthday- and I have been spending lots of money in on-line shops for stash!!!
Hmmmm there are 2 things I want but I dont know which to go for- A bind it all or a big shot!!! which one???? I have a tag a long , but the big shot will cut through thicker materials hhmmmmmm, and the bind it all will be so cool hmmmmm dilemma!!!
I have had some cool pressies today- 2 dvds- becoming Jane and Mansfield park- I just love period style drama films- ohhh did anyone watch fanny hill on bbc4 Raunchy or what!! I had to close the living room door incase any of the boys came down!!!- It was good though!!
I had a bottle of Leau d issey- love this perfume!! A memory card reader- I have wanted one of these for ages!! A digital photography book - I am really loving photography atm , and a design basics book - its for graphic designers but there are a lot of cross overs in there which could be related to scrapbooking!!! A wooden coffin with a ghost drawn on it!!! (calann has been doing some wood work, and made this for me to hang on the wall- it even has a hook!!!) oh and not forgetting my green and blacks chocolates!!

I have a hectic day ahead I am looking after my friends 3 boys so the will be 6 boys in my house ages ranging from 2-10 OMG lets see how that pans out!!!! Anyway have a good day!!

squirly whirly kinda of a day

Don't you hate it when you have one of those days where nothing seems to get done! Well the last 2 days have been like that- The highlight of my day yesterday was fighting my way through adsa trying to get to the tampon isle, whilst trying to stop Aeron from reading 'Tampon' out loud from my shopping list - as I knew what would have come next- 'whats a tampon, whats it for?? etc'
We have also been potty training in this house so have spent half the week following Evan round with a potty and mopping up wee off the carpet- and DETTOXING my house!!!

I have also been on Facebook finding all my old pals!! Its really fun looking from ones friends freinds to their friends, I have found and poked some people I havent spoken to for about 10 years!!
Anyway I am going to drink my coffee and try and make today different!!! hmm what to do!!

Sneek peeks - Here is my sneek peek for my 3rd layout for the october scrapstudio kit

Also this is a sneek peek of the project I am doing for Scrapstudio

We had a fab day out yesterday- we went to visit James gran. She lost her husband of 63 years a few weeks back so we all met up and went out for the day to cheer her up. We went to Torquay, and went to the 'Living coasts' to see the penguins. We had lunch at the cafe and surprisingly the food was really good(we have never had great experiences of zoo type cafes!!) but their paninis were lush!!- I had Salmon and cream cheese- YUM!!!

This is Aeron who had been placed on this mine??? by his grandad- he was just giggling!!

This was Calann by the entrance posing for me and for once he has a normal look on his face rather than his normal cheesy grin!!!

Evan did his normal grumpy stropy toddler thang!!! and kept sulking at every opportunity.

I saw such lovely colours thereincluding this sand box which I photographed whilst everyone was kinda looking at me as if to say 'WHY'!!- But I am sure that you will appreciate it!!

I could have taken hundreds of photo yesterday but I ran out of memorycard.

Right I ma going to be a good mummy and make the boys some scrummy tea- I have told them I will make them Sausage mash veg and gravy-YUM . Then I am going to make a GI lasagna for me and James!!- arnt I good (I will probably burn it all though!!!)

Just a quicky.......

I had so much fun at the crop yesterday- ok so I messed up my Layout I was working on and took it appart in much horror to some of the girls:) But I did get a little project done for a birthday pressie (I cant mention anything incase he reads this:)!!!)

Ellie asked me to be on the Modern scrapbooking design team- You are now looking at the latest member of it!!!

Noodles is fine the vet was happy that the lump wasnt a problem, and that cats just gets these things!!! When he had his jab as Noodles just screetched and scratched the vet- he thought it would be a good idea to castrate him when he is old enough. He thought he was cute when we brought him in(he does look cute!!) and then he swipped!! He is a bit of a wild cat and he LOVES his food- I give his 3 big bowls a day!!

I bought Kirsty Wisemans Digi course here, I think it will help me alot!! I cant wait!!!

Anyway we are going to visit James' grandmother today in Newton Abbot- she is such a lovely woman, James parents are going to be there too- the boys are VERY excited
Right got to go bye!!

Evan is so much better now and even slept through the night!!! He is definately more perky now and I took him to cresh this morning which he really enjoyed although he is very tired now!!

Noodles (my lil kitten) has got his last jabs today, so at lastt he will be able to go out soon- he has desperately been trying to escape lately!! I am a little concerned about him though as I have found a lump on his back- Going to ask the vet to check it out for us today!! I hope he is ok- even if he is a devil cat - I now have to sit with a water spray next to me so he doesnt bite me!!!

Anyway Mandy from scrapstudio brought my yummy DT kit last night- If you havent had any of these kits- You must try them Mandy really has a flair for putting a scrumdiddlyumtious kit together- I have even done 1 LO this morning - thats good for me!!

My poor Lil man

Well my poor lil man is still feeling under the weather! He showed me where it hurts pointing to one of his molar teeth!! He has hardly eaten today (and that is not like him), so I am making his fave tea- pizza and chips to see if that will tempt him. He has been driking plenty of orange juice though- which is quite good. Whilst he slept this afternoon I tidied my boys pitt sorry I meant bedroom. An hour and a half and a black bag later they have a tidy bedroom!! Shall I time how long it lasts!!

I am going to do some scraping tonight as Ii havent done any for ages and I want too do some new layouts for the comp!

On the happyscrappin forum I am on they have started doing photo promts which sounds great to me so todays is......... BLISS

So this is my bliss for today!

This was me and James in Rome on our honey moon- it was lovely just being us without being mum and dad too. James really does have a susspicious look on his face here , but it was the best one of me!!!

I found all these lil smileys today and I just love em You Go Girl Kitty 2 Black Kitty

Right back to the pizza and chips....... Wales

Declutter sunday!!


sorry again about my lack of posting here, I blame it on having 3 kids!! Evan (my youngest) is a little under the weather:(. His temperature is up and he is a bit grumpy, red cheeks, I think his back teeth may be coming through! Poor lil lad! We were at ikea last night and they had igloo tents there for a fiver so we bought one for him, so he made himself a bed in there today and watched Finding nemo with the kitten!! soo cute

Aeron is sooo popular he went to 2 parties this weekend AGAIN!! He has been to 2 parties a weekend for the last 3 weekends now- he has a better social life than me!!
Calann has spent the weekend nagging us to let him spend his pocket money!! We eventually gave in and followed him around the shops- well Tescos after Ikea last night, he bought a copy of the Iron Giant- its such a lovely film, and I found a copy of Amelie, which I have never got round to seeing but at 3 squids I couldnt resist, cant wait for a chance to watch it!! James said he fancied seeing it too!! But we have been trying to watch all the Rocky films, as I have never seen them before, and James wants me to see them with him- we have now watched 1+2!!
Anyway my weekend has been spent "decluttering" my kitchen (well the diningroom half) I cant believe the amount of stash I have accumulated in the last year!! I have put most of it into clear plastic boxes so I can see whats in them. So over the next few days I will be putting a few RAKS on here- some things are just too good to throw out!! So watch out for that!!
I am going to have alook through some of my 12x12 papers and sort them out too as I already know what I am not going to use!
This week James bought us a new computer well bits form here and there and built one himself, so whilst I have been "decluttering" James has been "cluttering" up our bedroom!! As we speak our bed has a whole pc on it and the rest of the room is full of the boxes from our new pc!!! Hmmmm and he complains about the mess I make scrapbooking- its never been on our bed!!
This pic was taken a few weeks back and it just makes me laugh- this is Calann at the zoo- it is just so him, he loves being the joker!! the other is of my grandfather- another joker!! considering they are 3 generations appart they are very simular!!!- Just ask my nan!!!

I admit to not doing a single bit of scrapbooking this week- I think my mojo wants a rest!! I think Mandy will be bring my scrapstudio DT kit sometime in the next week- I always look forward to a visit from Mandy- she is just so friendly and chatty!!

I am going to the modscraps crop next saturday, and I am thinking of entering the scrapbook magazines scrapbooker of the year competition- so hopefully may get some done there. Has anyone entered this ? I am a little confused about the sending of the entries do you send your origional layouts?? hmmm may e-mail them!

Right I think I am going to scoff some icecream with my hubby and watch 'Drop dead gorgeous'! anyone else love it??

Ohhh one more thing Elsie flannigan commented on one of my layouts this week I was sooooooo chuffed!!!

Right icecream time!!!

Photos and photography

I was sent this fab photo of me with all the scrapcamp teachers and Mandy- I love it!! I cant believe I taught amongst these fabulously talented women!! It was an Honour!!

Kirsty has a fab pic of me on her blog, and she made a lovely comment about me being gorgous- aww you made me blush Kirsty!!!

I really did have a lot of fun over the weekend, and I met some fantastic women- Thank you to all of you who took my classes, I really enjoyed myself, I realise I babbled on through all the classes, hope you all didnt mind too much!
Anyway I wanted to get some practice in with my camera as I didnt take a single pic on the weekend. So I asked my fabby scrapbooking friend Sarah to be a model for me in our back lane!!! Yes I know that sounds like a rather odd and possibly hmmmm place to do a photo shoot but , I saw these fab red leaves from the street and they called to me saying photograph me photograph me !! So I did and am so pleased with the results as was Sarah!! She looks so stunning against them, and was rather envious of her beautiful red and black top!!

Mandy (scrap studio) Parr came over last night with her little dog Martha Bunty. Noodles and Martha met last week Noodles (although only 9 weeks old) showed his domination for his home by arching his back, spitting, hissing, and then SWIPED at Mandy and Martha. Mandy screamed so loud, I couldnt stop laughing at my 9 week old dominator kitten!!!!!! - I told you he was a nutter.

mad busy mad week

I thought things would be a little easier this week with my 2 big boys going back to school, but It hasnt- I have a new childminded child and I am worn out!!!! I was challenged by Maria Grace abuzman to do a layout about how chatty I am - which I was really excited about and I feel so tired I havent had the energy!! Its has just been such a busy mad week!!!

Went out today with James the boys and another childminded child and walked with them for about 6 MILES!!!!!! it took us about 5 hours. There was an open door day in Bristol which you could visit parts of the city that would not usually be open to the public. So we walked around the redcliffe caves (an underground network of caves that was once used for smuggling) I have wanted to do that for years so I was really pleased to have finally have done it. W e then went to the museum then just walked to various site in Bristol. Whilst walking I bumped into Ellie (Modscraps owner) and we talked about me teaching a class at the next crop!!

I have been planning my scrapcamp classes too- I am really excited about these!!!!:D I have been having a play with tecniques to incorpoate texture into my classes....

Right have to sort house out:(

Monday, 3 September 2007

Back to school.......

I know its awful but I am ready to party at the fact that the kids are going back to school, I love them to bits but I need a little space every now and again. I have had 3-6 children every day for the last few weeks, and I need a little r&r bring it on scrapcamp!!!!! (Ok maybe not r&R but s&c(scrap and chat!!)) So 2 of my lovely boys will be going back to school tomorrow leaving me with only 2 children (what will I do with myself!!)

I finally finished this layout that I have been working on for a week- even James asked have you not finished that one yet, but I was working and working it!! I have machine & hand stitched rubbed (ons), flocked, doodled, inked, and some more doodling....

2 of my boys at western yesterday- arnt they cute:D!!
