WOYWDW, an award, apologies again...updates!!

I missed last weeks so I thought I'd share this week....not much to share on the card making/crafting side other than a desk I currently can't get to for stuff!!!
I've been so busy with my knitting for channel 5 & resting when not knitting, so I've just kinda lost my desk!!

As you can see I have my wool out, my stuffing & on the arm of the chair is the leaflet to remind to do the warranty for our new combi micro wave!!

Susie have you spotted the chocolate yet???!!!
There are some mini eggs hiding for me to do my easter gifts.

If you would like to join in with WOYWDW pop over & leave a comment on Julia's blog

A huge thank you to the lovely Wipso for this giving me this award. I am truly chuffed to bits that she has thought of me yet again for another lovely award.
As I have already received this award I will just say my huge thank yous & tell you my most favourite thing of all right now is
My blogging friends

I would like to apologise for the lack of blog hopping, comments, crafting & joining in with challenges. Truthfully I am having a really tough time with a lot of things & to add insult to injury having some major weird side effects from the tablets I'm taking. Doc has said they should go in a few days so I have to just take it easy for abit.

Updates 5 currently have one of my toys & the 2nd is about ready to post to them. They have now asked me to make a 3rd so I'll be resting & knitting again whilst taking it easy so I'm afraid probably no cards from me for a few more days yet. (I seem to have to have either my knitting head on or my cards!!)

Keep crafting & hopefully I'll get some blog hopping down a bit later

You sound to have a plate spinning sort of life like mine :-) Really looking forward to a show and tell when you're able with the knitting. Hang in there and do get rest when you're able. Your blogging friends are happy to wait in the wings while you are busy.

What did I miss that Channel 5 need your toys? Woo Hoo!! I spotted the yellow mini egg bags theminute I logged in...can't hide them from me you know!
Be sensible about rest, and frankly - enjoy the weird world the pills give you - sitting down though!!
Sam said…

Sounds like you are very busy with your knitting. Hugs Pam x

Trust Julia to spot the minieggs - I had to look for a second time to find them!!

You look sooo busy. I'm keeping my eye on Channel five and also you announcing (when you can) more about your knitting for them. Also - waiting with bated breath for your knitted character to appear on Harry Hill. We watch it every Saturday and the feature called K factor makes my family howl... let us know when yours will be on - or what character it is...

Hope you feeling better soon.

Colouring time with my boy ☺

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁

About me...

......I thought its probably time I should update my About me info! So here goes.... I am currently 36 years old (as of June 2017) I live in Selby with my husband and son who is (at present) 4 and a half years old.... my son not husband πŸ˜†
I suffer with CFS/ME, Fybromyalgia, anxiety and depression. They take up a large amount of my energy and time along with my family so I need an out, something for me and that is Ellephantastic. It's my creative life. Being creative, being inspired by other peoples creativity and inspiring others with my creativity are what keep me going. As well as the love I have for my family, but that goes without saying because who couldn't love this dude?

I love all kinds of crafting and creativity, knitting, art, baking, photography, paper crafting....anything really!
I have spent a lot of time the past 2 to 3 years working on myself and trying different avenues. E.g businesses, counselling, medication, diet.....all sorts! Every time though I have end…

Ellephantastic Cakes

Froggy I thought I would share with you today some cakes I have made over the last year and a bit. Who doesn't love cake? Right! Froggy was a chocolate cake decorate to match my niece's frog themed birthday.
Baby Giraffe Baby giraffe was a treacle sponge cake made for my niece who loves Giraffes Really pleased with how it turned out.

Rose Garden
These are cupcakes and I made a box for them by decorating a large cake box and making my own insert. I made them for my mum as a surprise  They are treacle cupcakes ....yum!

Chocolate Cakes All the cakes I have made have been for my family 
Hope I haven't made you hungry!!
