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.

Just a quick post this morning to share something that I have created. I found these gorgeous papers and made this layout. It isn't quite finished, but I thought that I'd share it anyway.

It's great to finally be home from work. What a lovely day today turned out to be.... a bit warmer than the forecast said this morning and no dust, but apparently there is more on its way. I love Spring - beautiful weather, pretty flowers, cleaning - especially the pool ready for those hot days - can't wait.

I have spent several spare minutes or not so spare bloghopping - yes new word to my vocabulary. There are so many talented and creative people out there and I am a fan of you all. So much inspiring work that I want to create - but don't have the time now - '2 hours later' - makes me wish I was a SAHM once again - ah what a life that was (mind drifts off) - how life changes over 19 years (babies are no longer babies - can get learners permit in Nov - and that's the start of the cutting the apron strings).

Til next time,
Happy Scrappin

Welcome to my first blog (for the second time around) I first wrote something at 7.00am this morning and I mentioned how uncomputer and technological I am and everything keeps disappearing, and the computer keeps shutting down on me, and low and behold it has happened yet again and I lost my first blogging even though I did save it, it can not be found anywhere. So if someone out there has found it can you please return it to me. I was so proud of my first attempt, but alas I will have to make do with this one.

Today is the start of the 2nd week of school holidays and can you believe it only 12 weeks or 89 days left until CHRISTMAS. Yeah, can't wait. I love everything about Christmas and can't wait to hit the shops. But that also means only 12 weeks until school holidays again......for 6 weeks.

Anyway have just purchase DCWV new techno stack, can't wait to use it.

Until next time. Happy scrappin.
