My brain is itchy

"You've got to fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love" this keeps going round and round in my head and it's driving me crazy......damn you Cheryl Cole!!  Another case of itchy brain.  This older post will explain what I'm on about.

Children's cards

Here's the next batch of new cards, this time birthday cards for children.

We have Goof Ball, a hairy monster with wobbly eyes, he's made from fuzzy paper so has a furry feel to him.

Dino Short Arms has made it onto his own card.

And here are some fairies ready to grant a birthday wish.

All of these cards can now be purchased from my Etsy shop.

Fun, Festive Cards

So here's the first batch of new cards ready for sale in my Etsy shop, I thought it was about time I added some Christmas cards.  These ones all have bobbly heads!  Just give them a shake and their heads bob about. 

I've been busy drawing these chaps, cutting out their heads and making springs for that important 'bobbly head' feature.  You can buy them individually or as a set, head on over to my shop for all the details.

Does anyone think the Elf is scary?  My husband thinks it is, he won't look at it, gives him the heebie jeebies!!  (Guess which card he'll be getting for Christmas?  Hee hee!)

I'll let you know when the next lot of cards go on sale..........

Bad blogger!

I've not been a very good blogger, it's been just over two weeks since my last blog!  Thing is I've been keeping myself very busy with card making.  I've been very productive and made nearly 60 cards!  Some are duplicates of the same design but it all counts, I've even managed to make some promotional magnets and experimented with making my own note pads.

my promotional magnet which is free with every purchase

I'll be adding all my new creations to my Etsy shop over the next week or so, and I hope to have my website up and running soon, I've been working on that too.  And I'm very pleased to hear that I've sold some cards in the shop in town (only four so far, but it's a start and that was after 2 weeks). 

I've certainly been getting through some ink, my printer's never worked so hard!  I'll update soon with some pictures of what I've been making.....

Why are some books harder to read than others?

Why are some books harder to read than others?  You know the sort, it sounds like it'd be right up your street, it has loads of great reviews about how good it is, yet some how you just can't get in to it.  I have a few books at home that I've never managed to read, I've tried on a few occasions to get through them but it just felt like such a chore.

I generally find that if my mind wanders quite a bit when reading, I'm either not that interested in the book or I'm not in the mood for reading.  I love to get stuck into a good book but do find I have to be in a reading mood.  I can get through a few books relatively quickly when the mood strikes though.

I have a few books by the author Val McDermid, and I really want to get stuck into her books as they sound like they'd be very good, just my thing.  I have managed to read one, 'The Distant Echo', it was actually quite a good book but it was a bit of a struggle to get through it.  I'm mid-way through another, 'The Mermaids Singing', which features the character Tony Hill from the tv series 'Wire In The Blood' (which I haven't actually seen).  I abandoned this book some time ago so I probably won't ever finish it, I've forgotten what's happened and can't bear the thought of re-reading it!  I haven't even attempted the other book I have, 'Beneath The Bleeding'.

She has a new book out, 'The Fever Of The Bone', and it sounds really good, maybe I'll have another go at reading one of her books, but for now I'm enjoying Tess Gerritsen's books featuring the characters Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles.  I'm currently reading 'The Mephisto Club' which has some rather nasty murders in it!

So are you the type of person that can read just about anything or are there any books you've given up on because you couldn't 'get in to it'?
