Quilled Flower Card

It's been ages since I've made any cards but I'm gradually getting back to it.  Sometimes it's good to have a break from things for a while to recharge the creative batteries.  Some days I feel like I've lost the ability to produce anything decent and other days it will come naturally - like today.

IF: Dusty

It's been a while since I've contributed to Illustration Friday and this weeks theme gave me inspiration.  I immediately thought of the horrible substance that coats everything, which is one of my bugbears - it makes things look so dirty and untidy and needs doing so regularly. 

With hating dust so much I didn't really feel that enthusiastic to draw any, so I thought I'd draw Dusty Springfield instead (well, my interpretation of her anyway).

Sprinkles & Crumbs

For anyone interested in cakes (eating and making them) I've set up a new blog for our cake business, which you can check out here.

see me over at Sprinkles & Crumbs

I'm still alive!

In case anyone was wondering.  Yes I've had quite a break from blogging but I intend to get back to it.  I've made a few changes to the blog too, I thought it was time to refresh the look a little and clean it up a bit. 

I'd love to say I've been busy doing all kinds of crafty things but sadly that's not the case.  During my blogging absence I've been on holiday to Northern Ireland, where I caught up with a good friend of mine who I hadn't seen for about five years, moved house, had a birthday, chopped all my hair off (I went to a hairdressers and didn't just do a 'Britney' - although I've felt close to it on many occasions.  I had a lot of thick long hair and wanted a complete change, now I have very short hair), got through Christmas and New Year, celebrated my husband's fortieth birthday (I think the shock of turning forty has finally passed) and made lots of cakes.

So that's what I've been up to in a nutshell.  Now to get back in the habit of blogging (fairly) regularly, I'm not one to just say something for the sake of it, which is why my posts are quite sporadic, but hopefully I'll have some interesting posts for you all in the furture.
