Goodbye August....

....the month that I forgot all about blogging. There is a myriad of reasons for my absence - not including the broken - but now fixed - laptop and the craft room overhaul - which I haven't been able to use as much as I would have liked!

I started the month with a shift from part-time hours at work to full-time hours, a slightly new role and lots of travelling around the city. Add to that a (un)healthy dose of viral infection complete with dizziness and fainting incidents, studying for a NVQ and an increasingly large pile of ironing - which, let's face it, makes anyone ill at the best of times - and you'll perhaps understand why blogging might have been the last thing on my mind.

Pretty Pink Beads

So, I'm looking forward to tomorrow. September has always been a month of new beginnings for me - and, as well as settling down to some serious beading - I'm hoping to try and keep up with two new projects. Learn Something New Every Day from the lovely Shimelle and Stashbusting September from the awesome T-Shirt Diaries, both of which kick off tomorrow - bugger the ironing!!!

PS. I must say a really big thank you to everyone who has left comments or e-mailed to check up on me while I've been away from the blog. Your thoughts and kindness have been a real boost. Love to you all!

  4. Welcome back then :)
    I wish you a happy new beggining in September!
    I always feel nostalgic with the end of Summer holydays... but they must end so something new can start, right?

    The "Learn Something New Every Day" project looks fabulous, happy scrapbooking!

  5. No wonder blogging had to take a back seat for a while, Clair! Here's hoping that September will allow for more creativity in your life. xo

  6. Great to see you back - hope you have shaken off that very nasty sounding virus (sounds like you have, because you sound just as excited as I am about the start of September :) )

  7. You've been so busy, busy! Glad to hear that your health is on the mend, along with your lap top. So good to hear from you. Have lots of fun getting into your September projects.

  8. Happy New Year. I teach and am married to a teacher so Sept always feels like more of a new start than Jan.
    Hope you are now feeling better - look forward to seeig youe beadig projects
