Sorry, sorry.....SORRY!!

I have been re-miss in my blog duties and I apologise.

Ok, so where have I been? Hmmm, that's a hard one to answer. Since my last post in......when was? My darling Daddy passed away which shook me to the core and totally destroyed my world. I had my first flying trip to Spain which was great. I usually travelled abroad by coach, but this time I flew and what's more I enjoyed it!! I also acquired a parrot!! Yep, a real life, flying, squawking, talking parrot!! Bailey is a forever re-home bird and is an absolute delight. I've had her for a year now and she has learnt so many new words and phrases. She hardly ever shuts up which can be a tad annoying especially as my house is 'minimalist' and very echoey, but for the most part, she is adorable. She escaped last year and was missing for 4 days. I had only had her a fore a few weeks then and the time she was missing, I was distraught!! I was out late at night and early in the morning looking for her and eventually and luckily she was found on the local cricket pitch where she kept flying down from the trees landing on a young lads shoulder to say 'hello' to him!!

Oh yes, what else is new? I'm a Grandma!! My youngest son's girlfriend gave birth to Billy-Jo on St Georges day April 23rd. He is a little smasher and I absolutely adore him!! I see him on a regular basis at least once a week sometimes more and I just can get enough cuddles!! He is such a little smiler and I cant believe how much he's changed in the very short time since his birth. He was smiling when he was just over a week old and is already giggling and laughing and he's only 3 months old.
Do I look a bit proud? Billy-Jo at 10 hours old.
This now makes me the Grandma or G-Ma as I call myself and my Mum a Great Grandmother. My Dad would have been chuffed to bits with him, he really would.
I'm still crafting, but I'm not making as many cards as I used to. I tend to make family cards only and don't really sell any cards.  My passion for photography has really taken over now and since I took a photography course last year, my interest has grown and grown. I've even got my own website displaying my photos.
I have been covering a few children's party's and have held a few portrait sessions in my own home usually photography small baby's and children and the odd dog.

I'm also making jewellery and have sold a few items now. I particularly love making wedding items such as tiara's and fascinators etc.. I've made a few small tiaras headdress's for ballet dancers to wear for their ballet exams. They look really cute.

I've also been working on an 'invention' that will assist wheelchair users. It's been a long, laborious process getting the patent applied for with the drawing up of plans, making a working prototype, filling in all of the paperwork and  but at last I can say I am now officially 'Patent Pending'. Yippeeee!! Once the patent has been passed and issued, I will be a very happy bunny and can start with the next part of the job, getting my invention into production. Hopefully, this will make me and my lads very rich if it is successful!! Hopefully!!

So, I guess in essence, what I'm trying to say is that from now on, this blog will be about my jewellery and my photography rather than for the card making that it was set up for.

Hope you don't mind? Nah, of course you don't do you? Ha Ha!!  Ok, so I'll post some photos soon, really soon. XX
