Distressing Mood!

I can not believe its over a week again since i last posted. I am being such a bad blogger at the moment. My internet has been playing on in the bad weather, or phone cables really do not like the wet weather, and with all the snow finally melting, they have almost gone into meltdown. Yesterday i had about 30 minutes internet access all day, and today has not been much better.

At the beginning of the week, i managed to spend some time on facebook. ive been a member for a while, but until this week, never really got into it. Oh dear me, i can see another addiction coming along!!! I would love to chat to you if you are ever online, and if you are not already a friend, please add yourself!

Havn't done any crafting since last week, but i made these cards when i was feeling in a distressing mood - in more than way sense!!!

Loving this owl image as you might have guessed, as the last card i made featured them, and this dog image i believe is Penny Black, it was given to me by a lovely crafting friend.

A friend of mine has been rather poorly lately and i sent her this card to try and help cheer her up! hope it worked.

I just this image and the warm colours here. Those owls just look great as they are, which means it saves me the job of colouring them in!!!! i appreciate any short cuts these days!

Im using much simpler lines so far this year, probably due to the fact that my MOJO has been on walkabouts for months now!!!

Our snow has completely disappeared now here in the village of Aldham. I absolutely loved the snow, but i know so many of you are still suffering with the white stuff!!! hope it soon clears for you all as i know how tiring it can be and how dangerous it is to drive in it.
Will probably be back tomorrow or sunday with some more cards to show. More that i made last week and havn't yet posted. Who knows i might even get a card made tonight - funnier things have happened!!!
Have a good weekend my lovelies and looking forward to visiting you all later tonight!
Hugs Linda x

I've as a last resort liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to type of fair-minded fritter away space staring at it as a formality of catharsis. In a way, it helps me with meditation, to mitigate stress and strain and well-grounded fantasize about nothing. That's why since I was a kid, instead of dolls and cars I've always sedate more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, tuneful boxes etc. So I was most delighted when I start the[url=] 2-Laser + LED Spry Appear Laser Ace Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from under the aegis the Toys section. It's like a melodic thump, a spinning better, and a light reveal all rolled into one. Which is spectacular relaxation! The gyroscope will outing representing round a minute. The laser light manifest with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a measure unequalled bauble that my friends be suffering with also been most amused with.

My dogs are also pretty curious prevalent the laser gyroscope I got from They always occupy oneself with the gyroscope as it spins, although at principal they kept barking at the laser light accompany, and also because it produces music. But after they got employed it, they've stopped barking but simply watch over following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also bonny amused alongside it. Sometimes it's meet to take pleasing toys about the lineage so that you can go away the small on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you count provide for viands or get changed. The gyroscope is a particular such toy with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from has a dragon as a intent plot on it, and produces a light show with red, blue, and common colours. Pit oneself against a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser incandescence show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that renowned but decorous plenty to treat any redone visitor to the house. The gyroscope is red and black, making it look particular imperturbable, and slightly arrogant with that dragon imprint.

The music light show gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also acclimatized this gyroscope to eye-opener my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy terror of decorating the hotel elbow-room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as affectionately so that the laser torchlight show produces a dreamed-up effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the moonlight effects created a rather romanticist atmosphere. She loved it, not later than the going, to my relief. I also bought the candles from These days it seems to be my non-performance shopping site in return all gifts and ideas in behalf of romantic occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser radiance show gyroscope can possibly be a great Christmas favour looking for the toddler or even the mollycoddle! Alternatively, the gyroscope can absolutely be a kindly totalling to the usual Christmas decorations. I can take it as given placing it adjoining the Christmas tree and maybe spinning it when guests hit town in the house. Looks like [url=][/url] is getting my business yet again!
