Welcome to my blog of little bits of randomness from me and my amazing life. I have been inspired by all the lovely bloggers out there that I decided that it is high time that I join you all and I look forward to receiving your feedback.

I enjoy all things photographic (although I am only an amateur and use a point and shoot camera) and craft, and intend to share some of this with you .

My Cranberry Lane brand is an eclectic range of handmade lovlies all handmade by myself and you can also experience my items in my etsy shop and madeit shop as well as on ebay. You can also see me at!/pages/Cranberry-Lane/124083160951544 so please feel free to hop on over and take a look.

February 2011

Well, once again I haven't kept up with blogging. Maybe thats what blogging is about - apologizing for not blogging........ basically I haven't really had much to say. Life is busy, hectic rather when you work full time. I have been buying of course, and made a couple of pages (but my family prefer that I don't post, as it is of them) :(. So my blog page will stay boring, how sad. I have had to redo my blog background due to changes with the company - but I am liking it - not pink - but still scrappy.

It is only the second month of the year and hasn't the weather been strange. I think we've pretty much seen it all. Storms, cyclones, rain, floods, fires. I hope its over - so much devastation for such a short amount time.

At least I was able to get a few photos - just to scrap them now - after bloghopping that is.

Until next time
Happy Valentines Day

What New Year Resolutions

So the answer is yes - the resolutions were broken by the end of the first week :( I haven't blogged in two weeks - January is almost over.

I have however completed one scrapbook page - one that I have had waiting to do for ages - and well you know - I just needed something extra to finish it, so I had to go shopping....... and yes purchased more for my stash. Well whats a girl to do when they discover not 1 - but 2 Kaisercraft warehouses - just had to go visit.

The photo printing place is having a sale - so today I will print all my 100's of photos and just maybe I'll even scrap.

Goodbye 2010 - Hello 2011

Wow where has the time gone. Ok so here it is the 2nd day of a brand new year - but what about the past few months - where did they go!

So whats happened...... lots. I guess the best way to start a new year is with
NEW RESOLUTIONS (which of course will be broken by the end of the first week).

1. to blog more......and actually share pictures.... if I can remember how
2. do more scrapping.....and craft in general
3. share pictures of my creations
4. use up my stash..... yeah right there is so much new out there....... gorgeous must have papers, products and the fav. of the moment Martha Stewart punches - one of which I received for Christmas - can't wait to use it.

I have however been keeping up to date with all my favourite blogs and adding some new friends.

Until next time
family photo time.......

Friday, September 24, 2010

I am so glad today is Friday. It has been another loooonnnnggg week. What have I been up to - apart from work that is. Well I have been fabric shopping and yes fabric is becoming as addictive as collecting paper for my scrapbooking. Just to sew it up - my aim is to have it ready for the next Handmade Expo. I have also been taking photos to scrap and have so many ideas in my head - only at times when I can't scrap, the minute I sit down to scrap, I don't have the mojo. I have been feeling like this for ages. I guess thats what working full time does to a person. and I guess it doesn't help that every weekend seems to be wandering around the shops fulfilling my teens wishes - so that doesn't really leave much time for ME.

But........ hasn't the rain (the week) of rain been lovely. I am not normally a rain person, but after the long drought I say bring on the rain.

Anyway that has been my random thoughts for today........

My poor neglected blog...... Life has just been toooooo busy, I am sorry. Working full time leaves no spare time at all really especially last week with staff away so guess who the lucky one was to cover - needless to say that I was exhausted at the end of the week. and then of course there's running a family and household.

So its almost September and fathers day - where did August go? Miss A and I went to the ekka - had a ball - so many photos to scrap - still have to get them printed along with the beautiful photos from my baby sisters wedding.

I have done some sewing and listed some of my items in my made it shop (just click on the icon on the side bar) still have lots to list and make up but I fear my sewing machine is in desperate need of a service - just to get it there.

Anyway better get back to it, until next time.......

Handmade Expo

The Handmade Expo will be celebrating its 2nd Birthday at the next markets on 21st August - yes it is also voting day - so why not do both? Come and visit Cranberry Lane, For Fun and Fancy and Scurrette at the Handmade Expo Bundamba Racetrack on the 21st August and then go over to the local school to do your voting.

Sewing for Cranberry Lane

For some reason my Cranberry Lane facebook page isn't working the way it should - hmmmmm. I will need to spend some time trying to figure it out. But not to worry, you can still contact me in blog land - I will try and be good and update - but you know.... life happens. I haven't done any scrapping for a while and yes I have major withdrawals - I have however spent the weekend sewing for my Cranberry Lane label to have for the next Handmade Expo - haven't quite finished - but I will be on holidays soon so hopefully can do some more then...... but before that is the Ekka - yeah. Am I going....well I am in two minds.....I really, really, want to its just the money side of things. Last year was the swine flu scare so we didn't go but this year.....anyway I am still debating.

Anyway until next time, happy blogging and I'll catch you when I pop by when bloghopping.
