I hope you are all well.
Where have I been? Well nowhere jolly that's for sure .. .. .. in fact I am lucky I have any hair left!!
The House of Hearts has been away on a journey into the world of installing Super Fast Fibre Broadband .. .. a journey which started last Tuesday and has only just finished .. .. .. three engineers and one week later!!!
Boy have I missed by internet connection!! You just don't realise how much information you search for and how many times you use it .. .. until you can't!
Thankfully my emails still came through onto my phone so I didn't miss any enquiries or orders but it wouldn't let me leave even the most basic of messages on my blog .. .. so I am sorry if you have been wondering where I was .. .. and thank you so much to all the people who enquired as to whether all was OK in the old House of Hearts. There are so many lovely people out there in blogland and I was quite touched to have been missed.
So what have I been up to? Apart from pulling at my hair out and testing my patience to the limit .. ..
Well the next two big events for me are a Wedding Fayre at the end of January at the new FA Training Ground .. .. St Georges Park . I am expecting lots of interest from even the grooms at this event .. .. even if the couples aren't getting married there I can imaging the men folk wanting to attend to have a look around the place. (Even Mr Heart has volunteered to help unload the car!! Not something he would normally offer to do LOL!!).
So I have been getting my head around some new samples for taking to the wedding fayre and also Valentine's Day is only just round the corner .. .. and being super soppy I love making things for this "lovey dovey" occasion.
Here is one of the creations I have made (which doesn't want to photograph too well because of the glass in the frame.
Pink Petticoat Papers: Just An Old Fashioned Girl (my all time favourite of all Liz's collections)
Pink Petticoat Alphabet: One of the fonts on the Big Fella Mix Alpha Set
Nestabilities: Classic Square
Red Die Cut Heart run through "Roses" Cuttlebug Embossing Folder that had been rubbed with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink First.
Gold Embossing Powder
Tiny Self Adhesive Pearls
So at least you can see I have still been creating during my absence .. .. and I have met up with some lovely new "happy couples" too .. .. yay!!!
Thankfully now my internet is back I can do some research for some "extras" I need for some wedding samples and can also catch up with all my lovely blog buddies to see what you have all been up to. I feel I haven't visited for ages and ages!!! The old internet is going to get a hammering tonight that's for sure LOL!!!
The final exciting news is that my lovely Sis has finally got her blog up and running. Well done Joey!!! xxx She has been working on some lovely ideas for posting later and I managed to have my first glimpse this morning. Can't believe the day she went live I couldn't view.
If you fancy paying her a visit you will find her here. (I just need to persuade her to take her comment moderation off!! Is it just me or does everyone end up typing in the words and numbers at least three times before you find one you can read and enter correctly LOL!!!). But I know she would love to receive a bit of bloggy love if you have any to spare!
Woo hoo!!! Lovely to be back!! I have missed you all.
Catch you soon.
