I love images from the web

Toffee apples, mmmmmmmmm don't you just love these.They look so tasty, love the colours.
If only i had the time or patience to do this, i love the black and white pumpkins. These would look so cool on my front doorstep.

Now these i adore, can't work out if they are real and been dyed, or made out of material, etc. Love them either way.

Now what about this for decorating for halloween, mmm not enough pumpkins me thinks.

Now i love where the wild things are, can't wait to see the film and so love this pumpkin.

Amazing outfits, can you imagine turning up to a fancy dress party looking like this, i would love it.
Well we went to my partners familys house for dinner tonight, ( can't believe i forgot the camera) so have made up for it by looking up some cool images on the web. I may even print some off to put in an album.
Well tomorrow is the 1st of november ( as you all know ) and i am amazed at how fast this year has gone. My christmas vouchers arrived yesterday ( we do a saving scheme throughout the year ) and so now have got to start thinking about buying presents. Now i love christmas, and everything about it, but since my mum and dad passed away i seem to dread the whole start of the season as its a reminder on another christmas that they are not here for. We have a very good time with my partners family, don't get me wrong but its not the same. The truth is i miss my parents, and christmas is hard there's no getting away from it, i suppose it comes down to how you handle it and cope with it.
Sorry about that just feeling a little low.

The happy couple

This is my friends Mary and Paul who became husband and wife last saturday, i was asked to take photos as their photographer pulled out at the last minute and left them with no photographer. I managed to get quite a few good shots, i have only put a couple on here as i dont want to spoil it for them.

This is my very good friend Mary and i think she looks stunning, and i really like this photo too.I am planning to make them a scrapbook album and also have ordered a book from Blurb, a website that you upload your photos to on a template of a book and they print it into a proffessional book, i have also just found out that boots do a similar thing too, but i had an email from blurb with 20% off and free shipping, now that's a bargain in my book, just got to wait and see what it turns out like. fingers crossed.
Well thanks for looking i will post about some crafty things next time

It's ok i am not dead!!!!!

Well i haven't been around in blogland for such a long time, i am ashamed to say, that life got in the way. As it does with everyone, and something had to give way for awhile. Well i am gladly back to blogging and service will resume..... hopefully.
Without going into too much detail i have not been well, and work commitments have taken prioity, supporting staff at the school i work at whilst going through a redundancy procedure which has affected everyone at the school.
Onto crafty things, i have a few things to keep me going at the moment, jyc soon to begin, a wedding album to make for a very good friend of mine....sssshh she doesn't know i'm making her an album, so don't tell anyone.
Christmas presents to make, yes i have overcome my fear of my sewing machine and we are making items together, its a team effort my part cutting out material in the shape of strawberries and swearing profusely when it all goes hideously wrong, machines part humming along at magnificent speed sewing away. End results and photos to follow, i need some jars from asda but every time i go in to get some they are sold out....gggggrrrrr.
I attended friends wedding last weekend and she looked amazing, i was asked to take photos as they couldn't afford a professional photographer, will post pics soon. It wasn't great weather but it did brighten up by the time we went outside to have a few pics taken

Well thanks for looking
and i won't leave it so long next time
