Wherefore art thou "Notme"?

Notme, if you're reading this I think we could do business. Seriously. Why give yourself a bad name getting my kids into trouble when you and I could scratch each others backs, so to speak? To date you have been blamed during the following interrogations;
"Who wrote on the wall?"
"Who pooed and didn't flush?"
"Who spilt cereal all over the floor?"
"Who pulled the curtain down from the railing?"
"Who put silly spray all over the ceiling?
"Who told Leah there were spiders in the toilet?"

Notme, are you getting tired of these juvenile pranks yet? How about we do some good in the world? Imagine my delight and joy to get up tomorrow and ask myself "Who made these lunches? Notme" Or "Who did the dishes?? Notme" Or "Who put the bins out?Notme" Or......or.....or....Oh be still my beating heart, "Who did ALL the laundry?" "It was my friend, NOTME, and I love him/her" I will leave you cookies, butter, whiskey, cans of Coke, whatever you want, wherever you want if you'd just defect to my side. Please. I'm begging you. And I will actually scratch your back if you want me to.
Hoping to hear back from you Notme,
The Mom Who Cleans Up Your Mess.

I'm finally making cards again!

Well after a wonderful weekend with Lynda and her gorgeous family and a day at Jackie Mooney's wonderful workshop, it was just the push I needed to get crafting again! Above is what we made at the workshop. (There's one missing, I've sent it to someone already!)I'll just have to try to recreate it! Huge thank you to Jackie and everyone who really made my day and for being so welcoming. It was especially nice to see the forum girlies. Some new faces and some old favourites! Lynda (the messer), Babs (the nutter with a flap problem......don't ask unless you're crafty!) and Karina.....what can I say? Words still fail me at this point. Only kidding, a Princess is the only way I could describe her. Isobel and Val, I feel like we're old mates now! Jess, Amanda Jane, Ann with the demo, Lorna, Angela, and Jackie C, (I know I've forgotton someone)Thank you all for making the day so great. I really should leave the house, city, hell county, more often!
And again Lynda, I cannot thank you enough for your hospitality. You are a beautiful lady with a beautiful family to match. I never would have dreamt I could be so comfortable and relaxed in a "stranger's" house. Which, in essence, we were. Thank you so much. x x x

And here are a few I made today for Lynda and her beautiful daughter who was made to sleep in the shed while I spent the night in her cosy bed!



And one I made a while ago almost completely made from a christmas card! Recycling IS the new buying you know!
