still here

Yes, I'm still here...! Nothing much to report, aside from running around non-stop after a baby and a dog. I've managed to find some time to do a few scrapbook pages, though, including this one. My tactic is to stay up very late at night and get no sleep, but that way I find time to craft! (OK... I didn't say it was sensible). I've used a lime green Maya Road mist with a mask made from an old scrap of scalloped square cardstock found in the midden-ous pile on my desk; I love these mists and I find I'm using them a lot at the moment. The new colours have a bit of shimmer in them - just the right amount and not as much as the Tattered Angel glimmer mists (which I don't like quite so much). The photo of my page isn't the best, I'm afraid, primarily because the lighting at 2am isn't particularly good!

I also seem to be making (and eating) a lot of cherry scones. Why? I don't know. All I know is that I make the scones and then they disappear. Marley quite likes them, as does Ian. I've scoffed a fair few myself.

The other thing I seem to be doing a lot of is washing/laundry; whatever you want to call it, it's the same - time-consuming and there seems to be lots of it. What really gets my goat is finding a pair of socks (or two or three) on the floor once I've got the stuff in the machine and the machine is running. Do men ever pick up socks? I need a better sock radar.

Erin is being a good wee soul. Lots of fun and she's smiling and laughing all the time. Yesterday morning she tried to sit up on her own, which is amazing (to me, at least - I wasn't expecting that quite so soon) and she tried twice more last night and once again this morning... a determined and persistent wee girl!
