Stockings!


I am determined to use up my paper stash, that has been boxed up for the last few months. If I am totally honest I do get a tad lazy and find it far easier to just print some off rather than go rummaging through boxes looking for something. Naughty I know, but I will try harder before the edges start to fade, like the paper we used to have at school, it would be in the store room for so many years the green paper would turn yellow at the edges. Its funny the things you remember from school - like why were the walls in the sick room painted the colour of sick????Maybe I should have remembered more about the learning, eh...
Poppi is at first speech therapy tomorrow, I hope it goes ok. Apparently most of her words will come as she gets older and are normal, but it is words such as "gog" (dog) that she should have been saying at 2 1/2 that arent so good. Her vocabulary is fantastic for her age (well it would be, she is female after all) its just the pronunciation. Anyway, we will see how it goes.
It is a sad day today, my mums dog had to be put to sleep this morning, after suffering a stroke. Mum, I just want you to know that my thoughts are with you today after losing your little friend, I know what she meant to you.
Card labels are: Papers - American crafts, brads, ribbons and photo hanger - Poppicrafts.
Thanks for popping by,

Great card. I entirely aggree with you on the laziness of pulling out fresh paper instead of going rummaging! The number of times I promise myself to use up some of the old stuff... and don't!!! You also made me laugh with your observations from school -oh, so true!
Hope all goes well for Poppi and that your mum is ok.
Love,
SammieJay xxx
