An Apology

Dear friends in blog land

I'm back.

You may or may not remember me. I disapeared and I'm sorry.

It started when my computer caught a virus, I couldn't get online and I couldn't upload a card for my DT spot at Stamping for the weekend I also had no way of letting my fellow teamies know. Eventually my lovely OH managed to make my computer better, but by this point I had missed at least 2 challenges and was too ashamed to get in touch to say sorry.
Then then pressures of my job took over. You may have noticed on my last post that I had left my job for a new, much better one right? No, not right. My new job involves working 45-50 hours a week including alternative Saturdays. Suddenly crafting took a back seat- I had no time or energy to make cards as my time off was spent doing the housework or laundry ready for the next working week.
Then I had the task of making my best friend and my brothers wedding stationary. I loved doing it and at the weddings I enjoyed having guests come over to me to ask if it was really me who made the wonderful invitation they receieved. But it had a downside- crafting had become a chore that I had to do and it came with a deadline. I spent hours alone in my craft room making the same thing over and over again. Its enough to sap anyones creativity, but I'd gladly do it again.

For a while now I've been considering coming back to my blog, I've found a way to manage my home/work relationship and Ive been crafting again since before Christmas. But I wont be looking to get on any Design Teams again as I have enough pressures as it is. I've been lurking around and reading my favourite blogs, theres one in particular that always gives me inspiration- A Scrapjourney - Thanks Debby, you've made me want to come back and enter some challenges again :)

I sincerely hope I didn't cause too many problems and upset when I disapeared and hope this goes someway to expaining my actions.

Thank you

  1. Aww Berni you shouldn't feel bad life happens and I think its amazing you made all that wedding stationery and working all those hours.
    I think its a good idea not to worry about a DT that way you can craft with no pressure and make what you want to and it would be lovely to see you makes again.


Your lovely comments mean so much
Thanks for looking!
