Help and advice needed please ..... blogger or bloglovin, what supplies do I need, challenges, hints and tips

Good evening to you all. So as you know I will be resuming my cardmaking after a 6+ year break. I feel like such a newbie again ... I need your help. I have been looking through my old posts and noticed I had mentioned about switching to bloglovin from blogger. I honestly cannot even remember this. Can someone please give me the lowdown about this because I have no idea. Is it blogger or bloglovin i need? What are the benefits of bloglovin? 

I am also looking at new craft storage which is very exciting. If any of you have posts of your craft rooms I would love to see. 

Now then, supplies ..... what are must haves? For those that don’t know I am very into ‘cute’ and love embellished cards and usually colour with my copic markers (hope they still have ink in lol). 

Challenges .... are these still popular? 

I am planning on sharing a lot of my cards on YouTube ..... is this something you would be interested in? If so what would you like to see? I am so excited to be getting ready to share creations with you all again. 

I would appreciate any help, tips, recommendations etc from all of you. I feel like I have forgotten so much but I am hoping it’s just like riding a bike .... fingers crossed. 

Thanks for reading everyone

My biggest regret .....

...... is not continuing to blog when I had all you lovelies following me.  Well they say life goes full circle.  I am on the brink of a new point in my life. I am moving house next week, I am setting my craft room back up, I am the happiest I have been in so long.

My laptop will be back in action and I am going to be blogging on a regular basis. I will be giving my page a bit of a facelift .... I really need a nice new look whilst retaining all my past posts. I am so excited and cannot wait to get back ..... I hope to catch up with lots of you that I have lost contact with.

So what has changed over the past 6 years. 6 YEARS ..... how is it 6 years already since I blogged on a regular basis.

Please drop me a line if you are still about. Plus if you are new here please leave me a comment. I hope lots of you are still blogging. Drop me a comment guys so I can reconnect.

I am moving next Thursday so realistically it will be a couple of weeks before I am up and running. We won’t have WiFi for a while due to an issue with BT but rest assured I will be straight on here as soon as I have a connection.

If you want to see how my house is coming along then have a look ...


Thanks so much for taking the time to read my post.

L’Oréal Pro Glow foundation now available in the UK

Hi everyone and welcome back. I am going to try and post more often but hopefully in a couple of months I will be back to regular posts. 

Today I just wanted to share with you a foundation that I have been waiting to try for ove a year. It has been available in America for so long and finally it is now available in the UK. 

L’Oréal pro glow is a radiant foundatiom and I think jig is perfect for someone, like myself, in their late forties. I just do not want matte foundations now that I am getting older. 

If you would like to see my first impressions of the foundation I have filmed a video on my YouTube channel. 

Currently the only place that you can buy the foundation in the UK is from Amazon .... it is available here ....

A bit of a catch up ....

Hi everyone,so I just thought I would pop on and give a really quick update. Life is pretty hectic right now. I am coming to the end of a very intense course for work and am now facing the stressful final weeks of written work and exams but there is light at the end of the tunnel. We have also decided to move and are waiting for our new house to be built. It is all very exciting and last week we chose our kitchen, flooring, tiles etc so I feel we are starting to get there. The house should be ready for us to move into sometime around mid to the end of June all being well. I am super excited because I have already made sure I get one of the bedrooms as a new craft room! Yes, I can no longer live without my crafting so I shall return. I have spent almost the last 18 months studying so I am really looking forward to being creative again and doing what makes me happy.

I hope you all pop back and as I start crafting again. It will be lovely to see some familiar faces. I am so out of touch with blogging these days but I can’t wait to get back into it. I put will be the summer in reality before I am back up and running but I cannot wait.

I hope you are all well.

See you all soon xxx
