All your projects look fantastic, can't decide which one is my favourite. Well done. Looks like I finished the blog hop, great. Sorry I entered my name in the UK blog candy when I shouldn't have, I done it and then read it, should have been the other way round, oops.
Blessings Hilde
What an incredible job all of your designers did with the artist's images, Helen. You must be so pleased.

I hopped like a bunny to each blog and commented on each one. How could I help myself - so much eye candy.

I hope to do your challenge as well, but it probably won't happen this week. My two brothers are coming for a visit and I am so excited to see them.

Wow, they are all fantastic, what a lot of work must have gone into them.

Just found your Me, Myself and CFS/ME blog and become a's such a relief to find someone that mentions M.E. and actually understands what it is (rather than thinking it's when you get 'a bit tired'). Sorry to see you are a sufferer though. Hope you are having a good day. CoB
Happy Birthday Ellephantastic! Helen, its such an inspiration as a fellow sufferer to see you doing so well! *hugs* and may there be many more birthdays for Ellephantastic to come :-) -xxx-

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!!
