Hello everyone,  I am back with a little update.
I have been a little unwell and then was extremely busy for reasons too numerous to go into.
Not sure if I will be posting much, as Mr Mojo has taken a holiday :-(

My one bit of good news ( I think it's meant to be good news) is that my youngest finished her diploma course and was heading to 3rd and Honours years at Strathclyde Business School studying Business Law and Marketing.  She had also applied to Heriot Watt in Edinburgh to go into 2nd year to do Business Law and Economics.  She only found out on Monday last week that she got in and she's off in about 3 weeks :-(.
It's all happened so fast, and we haven't got long to get organised, she's moving stores to Princes Street and taking up a room in the halls.
I'm really going to miss her as she's my wee buddy, I'm just hoping she enjoys it and that she has a fab time.

I hope you are all well and creating wonderful pieces of art.


  1. Hello Alison, so pleased to see you've posted, I was wondering if you were ok as there hadn't been anything from you in ages.

    Sorry to hear you've been unwell and hope you are on the mend and also hope that your mum and dad are doing well, I know from before that they had their medical problems.

    Great news about your daughter , even although you'll miss her.

    Take care of yourself, and great to hear from you, hugs Kate x

  2. I was wondering where you were and glad to see you back. Sorry to hear you have been poorly.
    Great news about your daughter. Hope she has a great time.

  3. Hi Alison, glad you have posted, been wondering if you are ok. Hope you are on the mend and that your parents are good too.

    Great news about your Daughter, you'll miss her, but you'll have so much fun when you catch-up. My Ma is on her way to visit me in NYC as I type this - I am so excited I have to keep stopping to take a breath.

    Can you email me your home address please - then I can send you a little package to cheer you up.

    Big hugs.


  4. Hello Alison, Sending you loads of crafty hugs, sorry you aren't feeling tip-top and hope you are on the mend. Best wishes to your daughter. xx Flora

  5. Hi Alison, just making sure you are ok...take care and keep smiling.xx

  6. Hi Alison, just saw your picture with a comment at another blog (Silver Scrapper) and thought "I must pop over there" as I've been MIA for a bit myself. Hope your health issue is all improved and congrats to your daughter for her diploma. That represents a lot of hard work, I am sure. Hope to get back to regular visiting again - but as you said, things get busy. That's life! This is craft. Gotta set priorities! Hugs

  7. Hi Alison, thanks for the visit. Glad it was helpful. If you are going to do it with a standard C5 card, the measurements are:
    Stamping pieces: 5 1/4x4,4 1/1x3 and 3 1/4x2. The mats need to be 5 1/2x4 1/4, 4 1/2x 3 1/4 and 3 1/2x 2 1/4.
    Have fun. Hope you are feeling better soon, and Mr Mojo soon returns from hie wanderings.
    Hugs, Shaz xx

  8. Should have read that before I posted it, lol. the second stamping piece should read 4 1/4 x3!
