Lack of Tutorials for Hougie Board Yahoo Group

I am sorry I have not been able to post any as so many things are going on at the moment in my personal live.

I have been hoping to move just before Christmas, so all my crafting stuff are in boxes, but the 3rd attempted House purchase has just fallen through due to the vendor not disclosing all the info needed.The first one changed his mind just before exchange, 2nd one got a better offer just before exchange and 3rd one bought the property from the council, who still have a hold on the property till october unless she pays the penalty.  Each time we have paid solicitors, search fees, morgage arrangement and valuation fees, so over £3000.00 later we are still without a new property and its not for a lack of trying.  What upsets me the most is that all my crafting goodies, half my baby clothes and most of my kitchen appliances havce been packed up since before christmas as we were suppose to move before Juliets birth. At this rate she'll be walking, talking and getting married before we get something:).  Fingers crossed we will find another house to buy, this time without any complications, soon so I can start crafting and adding stuff to the Hougie board group. There is a few other members who have tutorials on their blogs. As I say between trying to sort out the house purchase, a seven year old that wants to craft as much as mum does and my 2 little girls (15 months and 15 weeks old) I have neglected the blog and both my Yahoo groups a bit:)

Nappy Cake and Booties

Here is some Photo's of a lovely gift I got from Dawn  my StampinUp Demonstrator, after Juliet's birth.  Thanks again Dawn:)  It is a simple Nappy cake made with a few nappies, a few bodysuits (onesies) rolled and wrapped in a gorgeous fleecy baby blanket and secured with a nappy pin.  She also made a lovely keepsake and card to go with it.
Here's some close close-ups of the pair of paper baby booties, aren’t they just gorgeous!

Go have a look at all het lovely creations, she is so talented and have really great gift ideas.

Even more reason for absense

Ok now it is taking really long and I am getting frustrated.  We have been trying since 24th of December 2010 to get a bigger house sorted out and it was suppose to have happened before Juliet's birth.  I even packed most of my crafting goodies so I would not have to worry about it while in hospital but then our buyer had issues and then the person we were buying from pulled out, just one thing after the other.  Now at last it looks like the move might just happen in the next few weeks.  It better I so need to craft even just making one card would be excellent stress relieve.  To add to it all it is school holiday in the UK and because most non essentials have been packed my seven year old is doing my head in.
More news soon hopefully.

I have however found the most beautiful digi papers at Bearly Mine Designs.  I think Donna makes the best papers I have ever seen, I am hoping to use them in some mini albums I plan to do ones the move is over and everything is in it place. Oh just remembered I need a new printers as Bianca managed to reck the one I got two Chrismasses ago, cause Daddy up it on a low shelf and his little Princess dad great fun with it while Mummy was out to have her eyes tested. Please pray with me that this happens quickly.

Take care till next time and please do go look at Donna's blog.
