headerv2.1 LIVE

It’s been a bit quiet around here.  Well, I say that, what I mean is on here,  my blog. Abandoned would be a good way to put it I guess. As for me I’ve been so busy it’s stooopid.  My art journal calendar is sitting on my desk crying out for me to worked in. Yes I’m afraid to report that I am behind not just with updating it but with having pages ready to update.  Arrrgh.

I have to come clean and say that I doubt that that is going to change much in the next week or so either. There are lots of top secret plans going on and fingers crossed I’ll be able to share more with you before May is out. 

On the plus side for me I will have some crafty time next weekend as I’m off to Art from the Heart for a three day workshop with Dina Wakley.  Dina posted some sneak peeks on her blog a few days ago and it looks good.  I missed the workshops she did last year so was thrilled to bits to get a place this time around.  I’ll even remember to take a camera with me as well, so I’ll post photo’s as soon as I get chance.

And the poor service award goes to.....

Virgin Media!!!!!

Due to poor connectivity recently from our ISP we have decided to move our broadband service.  I'm sure if you've done this you'll know what a right royal pain in the ass it is, but tonight Virgin Media's live chat representative have scrapped the bottom of the barrel for customer service.  Not the biskit barrel obviously as all things are sweet there, but the customer service and dodgy website barrel.

Whilst on "live chat" with "Emma", our questions were not answered, we were told to ring a free number that isn't free...and is closed, and cut off without a chance to ask anything else. To put it politely there is not a cat in hells chance that they will be getting our business.  I just don't get why it's so bloody hard to get customer service right.

I am sorry to rant on my blog.  It's something I don't normally do, but I am sooo angry.  It's the little things that make life big, and it's the little things that make a difference.  Well done Virgin for getting it so wrong.

So, who gets your poor service award then?

Bit of a crafting void

I seem to have had little enthusiasm for crafting recently, even my art journals have fallen by the wayside especially in the last week.  I am still keeping up my AJ calendar but haven’t taken photo’s of it for this months pages.  Shame on me I know. LOL.


The kids however have been crafty and this is what they made me for Mother’s Day.  I will openly admit that I had a tear in my eye when I opened them up, even when Rosie was fit to burst and couldn’t help but present me with her turtle on the Saturday. 

In a hope to get back into the crafty grove I have cracked open the March Scrapagogo kit today to make this pocket journal (just as the April one is being sent on it’s way…oops).

PocketJournal1    I’m not altogether sure what it will be used for yet, but every page has a pocket and a tag of some sort so lots of room to add things to it.  To make it I’ve used to two sheets of double sided paper, dst and tissue tape.  I call that a stash buster.  PocketJournal2PocketJournal3PocketJournal4

Well, that’s all my craftiness for the moment.  Hopefully I’ll get back in the groove again soon.  In the meantime I hope it sunny where you are and you’re able to make the most of it. TTFN!
