Look Behind You!

Thats me, running behind everyone trying to catch up!  I can't believe I didn't do a blog post in October! It was a very busy month, first off I hit a very BIG birthday! seriously i can't believe I'm that age! eek i am a little freaked out, even my 84 yr old Mother can't believe she has a 60 yr old daughter, shush Mum someone might hear you! so its just a number, theres no way of avoiding it, so I'm not thinking of it anymore, its our little secret...  Ive also been to New York to see my beautiful twin granddaughters and also had the pleasure of having my other two beautiful granddaughters there too!  They could only come for a week but it was great fun to see them all together having fun! I was there for a fortnight and got to baby sit several times, and had lots of walks cuddles and play time - Bliss! Ive been back 3 weeks and am suffering from withdrawal symptoms! thank goodness for Skype at least we get to see and speak with them..

Heres my October calendar page followed by November, for the calendar challenge on The Kathyrn Wheel(sorry link not working) Im very happy with October.  November is a different matter, I just can't seem to find the right 'thing' for it I even forgot to gesso the pages!(senior moment! haha).  I don't like November as a month anyway its always so grey and blah,  or is that just me.
For October I used Ranger Distress Inks, I love the effects you get with splurging water on them, Tim holtz masks, Stampotique stamps (love them!)  For November i used Dylusions paints(love them!) with a baby wipe, dylusions stamps, crafters workshop stencils (Love them) a little bit of gesso on a credit card scratched on. Was sure I had a leaf stamp but can't seem to find it at the moment hopefully I will before the end of Nov.

I've been catching up on some sewing projects too I made the cupcakes cushions and also this tied fleece blanket (which actually doesn't need sewing) very quick.  Lots more to do before Christmas, which is only 36 sleeps away!! isn't that scary! Im off now to continue my catch up and look forward to checking in on all the great calendar pages.
Thanks for stopping by, don't forget to leave me a comment!
