Hello everyone,
Apologies for the longer than planned absence, I didn't realise how time consuming moving would be. I am now in Durham safe and sound and desperately trying to finish sorting everything that needs sorting still.

There will be a lot of new art coming soon, I have a lot of pieces finished but not yet photographed and a whole lot more still in development but now that I don't have that pesky day job to suck up all my time and energy I will be able to work on these pieces daily.

Now that I have moved I will also be far more active in the Self-Sufficiency group :iconself-sufficiency:

Hi everyone,
Just a quick update to say that I haven't fallen off the face of the planet. Things are about to get crazy though...

I finished my office job yesterday (on amiable terms) and now have one week to pack up all my stuff and get my Jersey affairs in order as I am moving back to Durham. I feel that sentence should probably have an exclamation mark or something at the end of it as it's a pretty big deal but I am too stressed out to feel excited at the moment.

In one short week I am going to be living in my house, have daily access to my garden, be able to throw myself into self-sufficiency, become a self-employed artist and actually get to be with the man I love. The last 5 years have been hell but it was my choice to stay in Jersey and the pay off is definitely worth the sacrifice. 

All the packing, moving, unpacking and organising will mean that I am offline for a few more weeks still. I see there is a lot of interesting and beautiful new artwork in my messages which I am looking forward to viewing properly when I have the time. I will also be producing new artwork of my own once I am settled in up north.

In the meantime I hope you are all well and enjoying the spring. xxx

ps: No this journal is not an April fools, I really have quit my job and really am moving back home. :hooray:

Hello everyone,
Just a quick update to say that I'm afraid it's still going to be another month or two until I am back online.

As well as everything else my laptop has broken in an non-repairable way and replacing it is not a top priority at the moment. I will still try to read notes and messages as and when I can but please be patient if you do not get a reply from me straight away as I do not have daily access to other peoples computers. 

Thank you for your understanding.

Hi everyone,
Due to unforeseen circumstances I'm afraid that my crafting has had to be put on hold for a while. I hope to be back in the swing of things by the start of 2015.

In the meantime my Etsy shop is still open and the Facebook giveaway I promised in September will be going ahead just as soon as I am back on track.

I apologise if this has caused any inconvenience and would like to thank you all for your continued support.

Hi everyone,

Due to a run of rather bad luck that has resulted in large vet bills and large medical bills I haven't had much time or energy for crafting lately. However I hope that within the next few weeks I will be back on track and creating new things. 

I also wanted to announce that as soon as I am back on my feet I will be holding a giveaway contest on my facebook page- www.facebook.com/pages/Lost-in…
Details will be announced once I am healthy again but I can say that this will be a facebook only contest. I'm sorry for those of you who don't have a personal facebook page (I don't have one either) but I will at some point be holding a DA only contest in the future so hopefully you won't miss out for long.
