How did I guess I'd be Anne Elliot!

Well on my travels round the internet (on the infrequent occasions it's actually been working!), I came across a silly quiz to find out which Jane Austen character you were. I was feeling particularly silly at the time, so I took it. I knew before I started that I'd end up as Anne Elliot, and I did. Have a go- it's silly fun.

I did 3 layouts yesterday at a Scrapaholics crop. The first was using their kit. It had some Bazzill In Stitch'z templates in it, so I tried those. I'm not sure what I think of them. I like sewing, but onto card? I also had some in my January Scrapagogo kit, and these are just borders so less time consuming. I used them on the 'Wet' LO- poor Bobs. He will insist on playing football in all weather. The last LO is of Bobs again- fishing in the garden. Being the mother of a boy is never boring :o)

Happy New Year!

A bit late, but I don't enjoy New Year at all. Start to think how much my life mirrors that awful film 'Groundhog Day'. But, self pity never got anybody anywhere, so less of that and more positive thinking.

I'm still doing the Christmas Journal, though I'm a few days behind. I've signed up for an A-Z journal and that's only once every 2 weeks so that should be OK. I've also signed up to do at least one layout a week! Oh come on, I've got no essays to worry about, I should be able to do it.

As for resolutions, I'm so useless at keeping them, that I've not bothered this year- my scrapping targets are the closest I've got. I suppose I should be thinking about going back to work, but haven't a clue what I can do or what will happen with the children after school and in the holidays!!! We're too remote for them to be left in the house on their own and a bit old for child minders- hmm, I really don't know.

Best and worse scrapping buys- I agree with you on the best Anna, my Bind it All. Who wouldn't want to make their own books! I love it. Worse buys- paper decorations from QVC. I did one and it looked so naff I gave up.

Picture is of Bobs on Christmas Day- I really don't know what he's up to- some mischief no doubt :o)
