June Day 30......

Well here we are on day 30 of Karoove's fantastic blog
every day in June challenge......and I made it lol! I'd planned on ending
with the double but my little miss is still feeling poorly & with 7 of 
us in the house when one gets ill the others usually follow.......and 
follow they did!! So sadly no crafting time for me at all this weekend...I've 
been on bucket duty instead!
I'm gonna miss this challenge, it's been lovely sitting down every
evening & blogging, I've "met" some lovely ladies & picked up some
fab hints & tips & seen the most gorgeous creations. 
So what are the very last prompts:
June Day 30: What does crafting mean to you
OR
Craft something that has an age theme

So what does crafting me to me......well for the last few years I've 
spent a lot more time at home.....and crafting has definitely
saved my sanity lol! It's my little escape, I've crafted through some oh, so 
tough times and no doubt I will again. It's something I look forward to
every day....sometimes an hour at night, sometimes very early morning
while everyone else sleeps, sometimes, very rarely, a whole afternoon!
I usually craft to very loud rock music, the 
dog usually curls up at my feet, the cats on my desk(?) and the kids
wander in & out. Although it's my hobby they all play a part &
all of them like to know what I'm up to! It's something I share
with my daughter, Rebecca......after 5 boys along she came and
thankfully she shares my 2 favourite things to do....craft & read!
It's something that's always there, doesn't have to cost a lot - usually
does but I like to re-purpose things too and that can save on the pennies!
But the best part of crafting has got to be the sharing....every
crafter I've ever met, whether IRL or in blogland, have been
so kind, generous & friendly and since I started blogging I've met
people all over the world....one I'm hoping to meet for real this Summer!
 So that's it, day 30, a whole month has passed and so the very last
thing I'd like to say is a big thank you to Kairen for organising this 
challenge and fingers crossed there'll be a next time!!

  3. Thank you so much for taking part. It has been fun hasnt it if not a bit hard at times. Many late night I have suddenly shouted I've not done my post to the point even my other half was checking I had done it ready for the next day. I am just going through the names for the hat and my little chart thingy says I have no link from you on the 5th. Did you double post one day ? Would hate you to miss out on being in the hat
