I am so sorry guys :-(

Hi everyone, i am so sorry i am neglecting my Blog again 😦 I promise i will kick myself up the butt and start posting again. Its just been so hard after my house move. Also the covid situation is getting my down. Just everything has been hard and know motivation at all.

I have also been sorting out my craft space. If you follow me on Facebook i did post a few pictures of it but i needed more desk space. I had a delivery from Ikea yesterday and spent all day changing it around. I am suffering for it today though! My back is killing. I ordered another Kallax unit and some draws, shelfs etc to put in it. I have lots more work space now 🙂

Here are a couple of photos of it. I don’t have the luxury of a designated craft room so i share my bedroom with it. One day when i have my own craft company i can afford a bigger house lol 😉 Well i can dream anyway.

So there is my crafty space 🙂

Please join me on Youtube this Sunday for the start of my new series, Relove your stash!! I am really looking forward to this as when i did my ‘Tired of it’ video the other day, so many people have reached out to me through email, Facebook etc.

Happy new year everyone and i will be back soon.

Love Ann xx

  3. Hi Ann,  I’m so sorry to see that you are taking strain and you obviously are.

    You know, you mustn’t be too hard on yourself.  They reckon that a house move stress wise is comparable to losing someone, in your case, being on your own, having to decorate  a whole house by yourself, trying to keep your business going, its amazing you are still standing.  Add to all that the length of time you had to wait for the house to be ready for you to even get the keys, it was an absolute nightmare.  You had just taken on being a sizzix demonstrator and obviously, no matter how understanding and nice they were to you, you must have felt enormous pressure from that. Think about it, our Ann has been a little pressure cooker ready to blow, but didn’t. She held on and is still trying to release that pressure.   No wonder your mojo is battling to get back. I think an awful lot of us are battling at the moment.  This virus has put us all under immense pressure, the constant lock downs, not being able to socialise, not being able to mix with our loved ones, so many things blocking our creativity.   Ann try and not stress.  You are a wonderful demonstrator, your inventiveness will come back, it may not be today or tomorrow, it may not be next week, but it will come back and all us followers of your you tubes will be quite happy to wait until it does. Give yourself a break, sit back, have a coffee or a wine, and think how many friends you actually have through your wonderful creative gift. With love,

  7. Your doing a great job and we’re all in the same boat sometimes we get crafters block and can’t craft but when you move house and there’s Covid to deal with it’s all too much. I’ve just got my mojo back after watching your videos on laminating I love them. Your craft space is very tidy. Thankyou for sharing your talents keep going.

  10. Hi Ann,I’m pretty new to paper crafts as I usually stick to watercolours. Anyway after receiving some crafting items and wating tutorials mainly yours, I’ve got the bug.
    You are so talented but down to earth,easy to understand and I love watching your tutorials.
    I made my very 1st laminated notebook and it looks pretty ok,though I think my elastic needs to be a bit thicker.
    Please take care and try not let this blinking Covid grind you down lass and dont feel apologetic if your mojo is lacking from time to time as we all get like that.All the best x
