2012 Conclusion - Finally :-)


Well here are my last few photo collages to conclude 2012.  I loved looking back over the years photos (and there were 100s of them!), 2012 was a lovely if not slightly emotional year.  

As you can see from Septembers photos Little Sweetpea went to big school, she is loving it although she does ask if she can stay at home some days.  I am still missing her but have slowly adapted to her being away from me.

We had fun down the allotment last year and also Mr Sweetpea harvested his first honey from his bees.


October saw little Sweetpea turning 5, she was ill for quite a lot of that month poor thing but still managed to eat cake :-)  We also had a big family get together to celebrate Nan & Grandad's 60th Wedding Anniversary which was great fun.  ooh we also had our chimney swept - I couldn't help but sing a Mary Poppins tune when I saw the sweep come out of the top of the chimney :-)

December 2012

In December I got some of my photos turned into cards which have sold really well.  I started a huge crochet blanket which I am still hooking away at.  Gingerbread houses were made with my sister and the children and hot chocolate was drunk.  Little Sweetpea took part in her first nativity, again she was ill just before that but managed to get back to school just in time.  Of course there were more family get togethers, Christmas day was spent round my parents with lots of family and friends and a great day was had by all :-)

December 2012
So in conclusion 2012 was a lovely year.

Art from the Heart Auction

Some time ago I read an article about a little girl who had her hair cut for the Little Princess Trust.  This charity raises money and takes hair donations so that they can make wigs for children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment.

It got me thinking .... why not grow my hair until it was long enough to be used to make a wig?  I can't even comprehend how sad a child must feel finding out they had cancer and then to lose their hair due to the treatment they had, it must be a constant reminder of their illness :-(

Fast forward a year or so and my hair is nearly long enough to be cut and sent off and I looked up on the charity site how to go about sending it off.  I found out that it costs £350 to create a real hair wig for a child so then asked on my facebook page if others would like to help raise money for this fab cause.  Well I have been overwhelmed by the fantastic response!  I have a lot of people now wanting to participate which means we are going to have a fab auction of lots of lovely hand made items by some very talented people.

Pop to my facebook page so see what is up for auction, I will be adding new items over the next few weeks.  Also if you would like to join in please do message me via facebook or at - the more the merrier :-) xxx

2012 Round Up

It seems like ages since I have blogged and how I miss this little area of mine.  To get myself back into blogging I thought I would do a photo collage round up of 2012.  I think part of the reason I am finding it hard to blog is not only time but also the fact that I have so much to share I am not sure where to start.  I think if I summarise 2012 in photos that leave me feeling free to start afresh for 2013 :-)

January 2012
February 2012
March 2012
April 2012
So there is the first four months, the rest of the months to follow over the next few days.  I hope you are all well out there in Bloggy Land.  I will be back soon :-) x
