One World One Heart

I participated in the One World One Heart event last year and had such a great time reading and meeting new bloggers that I wouldn't have come across otherwise and I really wanted to be part of it again. Unfortunately this is the last of five OWOH global events Lisa Swifke has run, so get your blogging hats on and get over there and join the fun. I had lots of lovely messages last year from all around the world some whom im still in contact with.So why not join in with the fun.

Just for the ones that are not regular readers of my blog .Im an avid crafter who had to give my crafting business up due to illness in 2006 .After being diagnosed with ME/CFS Fibro.

Since then it is back to being the most enjoyable hobby i know plus it helps me pace my ME.I am into any sort of crafts,From cardmaking,scrapbooking,Altered Art,Atc's.I will try anything once.I am a huge fan of the Lovely talented Mr Tim Holtz.Try each year to do his 12 tags at christmas .shame he doesny do 12 months a year too,but such busy man i expect he wouldnt have the time!

I live in the Norfolk/Suffolk borders with my Hubby and 2 daughters who absolutely have so much patience with me and support my craft hobby so much.The best bit they love going craft shopping and support me 100%....can't say that of many so he is a gem when it comes to that!...Wont praise too much head might have a lovely puppy Westhighland white called "Bobbie" who will be 1yr old on 19th Feb.So much lovely forests with the sea side not far theres lots to see.We still go back to London regulary as we moved from there to here.Now awaiting for the credit crunch to be over so we can now move to Hertfordshire .As my husband commutes 2 hr drive there and back to work.But at the moment house prices are at the lowest here in the uk wouldnt benefit selling now ,but im sure every where is feeling the pinch.

Iwas trained as a senior Nurse speciallizing in ITU and A&E nursinf and loved every single minute .Always wanted to be a nurse form the age of 11 and yes i did it!and love it!

I am the only member of my family in the health care proffesion and for that mater only one who ia arty.Both my daughters love to make cards and albums so im hoping they will carry on with creating later in life.My eldest also likes to blog with her friends she is mad on Rober Pattison yes "TWILIGHT FAN" me never watched it nor interested in such a movie .But keeps her occupied.My youngest well was once a tomboy but now has found the colour pink at 12 years old.I thought she would never get out of combat trousers how wrong i was .she has now growing up to be a girlie girl and yes i actually saw her legs on saturday as we wnet out and she wore a dress!!!even are friends where shocked!!!bless her.Anywyas enough rambling enjoy your time leas efeel free to comment on any posts .i will try get back round you all even if it takes me past feb 17th as it seems to grwo each year.
