I am still here!!!

HUGE HUGE THANK YOU to my crafting buddy Tracie Jane, for my fantabulous award - You are very sweet and kind. If you havent stopped by her blog, you must. She makes stunning cards and I love popping over to see what she does with Poppicrafts products. It is very rewarding to see what people create with my products as every one of them is unique and makes me smile.

Just to let you all know that I am still here and well, and thank you for your kind comments and stopping by. As some of you already know, I have packed most of crafting stash away (big sad face) while our building work is being carried out, so I wont be blogging for a while. Hopefully when the new craft room is done I will back at my desk beavering away!!! I am focusing on the shop at the moment and have just received my new delivery of grosgrain ribbon. Cant wait to get my hands on it and play. (hurry up builders!!!) Next week I will have more blooms in stock, crochet flowers, MORE ribbon and mountains of brads - Yippee!!! So there will be lots of new kits over the next few weeks. I do stop by as many blogs as I can. What with half term next week and my little soldier will be having his 5th birthday, I will be rather busy. 5? I can hardly believe it, he is growing up before my very eyes, telling me on daily basis that he his nearly a grown up,but he still has his childlike moments that make me smile for days. My mum was talking to him the other day about bees:
"There arent many bees left in the world now Riley and they are very important as they give us lots of food"
"How do we know that nanna?"
"Because the bee doctors have looked into it and there are far less than there used to be"
He paused for a moment.
"Nanna, are the bee doctors people or bees?"
How cute is he??? Me and mum had visions of these little bees buzzing around with suits on and briefcases under their wings...

Poppi has been unwell this week, but of course being female, she has been very brave and soldiered on. She wanted to go to pre-school and play with her friends, but she was just so sleepy and floppy. I cannot bear it when they are unwell, but I have to say the amount of snuggles we had was just lovely. I really cherish moments like that as they dont last for long do they? Riley is already of that age where he will hold my hand but would much rather hold Poppis, when we come out of school. I have no doubt that I will wake up one morning and holding my hand or kissing me goodbye at school will be embarrassing for him. So all these little moments are very precious.

Anyway, thanks for popping by and I'l be back "making" soon, cant wait!!

Good luck, we had builders in at the end of last year and I had to pack up my craft stuff, so I know exactly how you are feeling! It is a lovely feeling when you get to unpack it all again tho and rediscover what you have!
