Back from Holidays

Hi folks,
Been back from visiting my mum and family for about a week now. Taken me a week to get back to normal.
Had a fantastic time at my mum's we visited crab Apple Crafts, Rosemary merry's shop (from QVC) A lovely bright and airy craft shop with loads of gorgeous stuff! A scrapbookers paradise! They also had a sale on which was even better! Rosemary herself was very nice and gave me some tips to help me with my new clear acrylic album! So wish me luck I will hopefully be starting that soon when my daughter goes back to school.
We did quite a lot of craft shopping and a couple of days crafting in between visits to other members of the family.
We also went up to visit my sister and her family in the lakes. We all had a lovely time even though the weather could have been better. We had a couple of trips to the cinema. Mamma Mia is fantastic and I think all girls should go on a girls night out! Ok maybe I no longer classify as a girl but it was a great film!(not meaning I have had the op! just that I am slightly older than girl age!) Mummy 3 was also good and the kids loved Dark Knight.
Came home and a couple of days later went to a funeral for my friends son. A very, very sad day but he had a wonderful send off, His brother and friends did him proud with their eulogies. I pray that he is now at peace and his family find the strength they need to carry on.
Now I am in the start of term rush of bag buying, pencil case filling and last minute uniform buying. Everyday my daughter remembers something else that she desperately needs so she can return to school fully prepared with a pen for every occasion and I hope a brain as well prepared as the accessories! Needless to say her friends will all have gone for a different colour and hers will be soooooo last week that she will want to restock everything within 24 hrs! Not going to happen!!!
Anyway enough of my ramblings for tonight! Glad to be back and can't wait to get going on some of the great challenges that are tweaking at the craft particles in my brain!
Take care

My rainbow

Your rainbow is strongly shaded violet.


What is says about you: You are a creative person. You appreciate beauty and craftsmanship. You are patient and will keep trying to understand something until you've mastered it.

I am Blue- it's not as bad as it sounds

You Are A Blue Girl
Relationships and feelings are the most important things to you.
You are empathetic and accepting - and good at avoiding conflict.
If someone close to you is in pain, it makes you hurt as well.
You try to heal the ones you love with your kind and open heart.

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.
