Taking a Blog Break!

Hello and thank you for your visit.

I have decided to take a blog break until the beginning of December.

I've got so much going on this month  that I'm  finding it difficult to find time for blogging.

On Friday I'm going on a craft retreat with friends at Oyster Crafts then a couple of days after getting home I have friends coming to stay for several days to help me celebrate a special birthday.

In addition I have a friend in hospital,  dental and optician appointments booked and two "new home" cards to make.

I'll be popping in to see what you're all up to while I'm absent and will leave comments when I can.

I hope you'll visit again when I'm back and if any of you are also going to Oyster next weekend please do leave a comment so I can catch up with you there.  Barb xx
