Well Where do I start?

I know I have not blogged in what feels like an age and I am really missing it!
I spent Friday editing lots of photos that I need to blog and will get a few posts done this week catching you up with where I have been and what I have been doing!
Firstly I must show you my swap package from my good friend Helen who I popped to see a few weeks ago and while we were nattering we decided to give our selves a little challenge to send each other a little pack of goodies and get making with them!
I have kept to one side of the deal by sending my package but am yet to get making with them, I think I need a 10 day week right now!
I have never been a big Halloween crafter and even less so since leaving my job at a school last year  but I will get something made this week I promise!!
I just love these little boxes she has sent me and the tiles are fab, I really wanted to get some of these when Helen gave me a couple before but never got around to it!
I am a little sad, but mega excited all at the same time as when I went to see Helen, we decided to go along to the Hobbycrtafts Show at the NEC, we used to go loads but a lot has happened in both of our lives and we stopped so we decided to pull our socks up, dust off our shopping bags and go mojo hunting.... however I have thrown a big spanner in the works.... as some of you will have read I have been demonstrating for Fiskars in Hobbycraft stores across the country (Watford I am at your Hobbycraft this Saturday!!) well I had an email from them last week asking if I would be available to demonstrate at the NEC (on all of the days!) I couldn't say no, so I have juggled the day job around and off I go, but I was so looking forward to walking round and bouncing ideas back and forth with Helen just like the good old days!! I am hoping I will be able to take a little break and catch up with here a tiny bit!
Right I am going to go a spend a teeny bit of quality time with Rob as I have been at work all weekend (not normal these days unless I am demoing!) and will be back tomorrow with some Fiskars Fuse projects to wet your appetite for my NEC and Hobbycraft Demos!
