Gift from my Sweet Friend Claudia

Hi Everyone

I bet you thought I’d got better at using my blog for the end of August but then nothing again for a week!! In my defence I’ve been really busy with the girls and getting everything ready for the start of the new school year on Monday and also that day will be my dear darling hubbies 40th birthday!!! – He has been fretting for the past couple of years about being forty so I don’t know what he will be like that day!! Also if he’s this bad over turning forty what’s it going to be like in ten years when he hits fifty!!!

Anyways with all that going on I’ve not been able to do any real crafting – although I do have a few projects part done that I’m hoping to finish early next week and then I can share them, so I thought I would show you a few things that I have received in the past several months but not had a chance to blog properly. Today I wanted to share with you a absolutely beautiful name sign that was made for me by my wonderful sweet friend Claudia. I’ve actually had this since April and I did show it in a youtube video but for some reason I didn’t post it!! It sits in my craft area in our bedroom and I adore it but it also makes me a little sad now to know that we won’t be seeing any future beautiful creations from her. For those of you that don’t know Claudia (66msclaudia on youtube) she suddenly and very unexpectedly lost her husband in July this year!! Claudia has six wonderful children and was a stay at home mum so to help her family she has decided to sell all her craft supplies, she has video’s on her youtube channel of the things she is selling if any of you are interested!! (If you happen to stop by Claudia, I love you sweetie!!) Anyways back to the beautiful sign she made me!!

namesign from claudia Well!!! Isn’t it beautiful!!! I love it so much and will treasure it forever!!!

Well that’s it for today, I hope to be back tomorrow with a few other items I’ve received. Thanks for stopping by!
