Hope you've all recovered from your Easter weekend. Holiday weekends always leave me totally confused and at the end of it all I haven't got a clue what day it is. This one seems to have been worse than most and I've definitely lost a day (or two!) along the way.
I've spent around 20 hours with my youngest son scribing for him for his popular culture essay on Christmas (his disability means he can't write or produce huge amounts of text typing so that's my job!) I've never had quite so much Christmas at Easter before - but I've been well educated along the way. The good thing is its all done and he's away off to Uni this morning to hand in his books at the library - and get out the next lot - any one for a 10,000 word dissertation on Convergence Theory!!
Enough of Easter (and Christmas!) - I was caught totally on the hop for my DT card for the My Time to Craft Challenge - didn't realise it was Tuesday already and on top of that couldn't see how a whole two weeks had passed since the last challenge! None the less it IS Tuesday today and time for another challenge at My Time to Craft. Our new challenge for this fortnight is
So dust off those fairies - yes all those as yet un-inked and hidden away in your stash - and lets see all your pretty - or even dark and wicked - fairies this next two weeks.
