This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Slideshows of all the cards I've uploaded to my blog can be found at the bottom of the page.

I'm back!

Hello there! Well, I know I've been away for a while but I'm back now. The reason for my sudden departure is that I have been unwell.

Following increasingly worsening symptoms of thirst, blurred vision, palpitations and hyperventilating, I was taken into hospital on the 13th June. Turns out, I've got Type I diabetes!!!

I was in hospital for 10 days, on various drips, and now I've got to test my blood glucose levels and give myself two insulin injections a day.

Then, my in-laws came for a 10-day visit, so of course I had to pack up my craft room (AGAIN!!) so I could make up the sofa bed.

Anyway, I quickly got the hang of the injections and I'm still trying to manage my blood glucose levels. My husband very kindly sits and eats sweets, cakes and chocolates in front of me, knowing I can't eat any of them. He even came into the hospital with Twix bars and Fruitellas!!! He's a cruel man! Actually, he was very good. He came to visit me every day I was in hospital (driving from Newbury to Reading every time) and he even came in twice a day whilst I was in the CDU ward for the first two days.

So, I've now got my craft room back and I've been busy making cards. I'll upload a couple of them each day over the next few days.

It's good to be back and I look forward to seeing what you've all been up to on your blogs. I'm sure I've missed out on a few new trends that have taken hold.
