All Change!

Do you every feel like life is happening just a wee bit faster than you can keep up with??

That is exactly what the last few months have been like here and it is still a little (lot) crazy!

I quit my very part time job a couple of weeks ago in less than ideal circumstances (lets just say someone obviously had it in for me and moaned so much I could not put up with it any more even though I had the full support of my boss). So, I have decided to throw myself into Heavenly Handmades , my card making business, to see if I can actually make a go of it, here are some of my new designs using my gorgeous new Wild Rose Studio stamps (bit fuzzy, sorry)

I always feel such a fraud when I say I am going to try and sell my cards because they are so simple compared to some you see but I figure some people must have the same taste as me in simple rather than 'busy' cards...

The website has also had a bit of a face lift, I am getting there slowly but I would love to be able to afford to get someone who actually knows what they are doing to do it for me! I have an advert going in the local community magazine in a week so I need it looking good by then!

Now to be a true Scottish person, a moan about the weather. There were record temperatures here last week, 22degC at one point, proper shorts and t-shirt weather

I raked around the loft (attic) to get the summer clothes down, had them out for a day then the weather got cooler and tomorrow the forecast is snow with a low of -9degC overnight, brrr! Global warming don't you just love it...!

Off to find my thermals for tonight:)

Linking to some of these fab linky parties!

    Totally get where you are coming from, we're down on the South Coast, and I didn't believe the forecasters at all but just popped outside in the garden and my feet hurt as the ground was sooooo cold, brrrr!
