Welcome to my World – Blog Hop ’09

Taking part in BlogHop ’09?

GIVEAWAY post HERE – be sure to enter!

There is a huge blogging conference going on in Chicago, and WE are NOT bitter that we aren’t there!

Instead, we, the Cinderella’s who can’t go to the ball (unless we all get visited by a fairy god mother) are having a pity party wee party of our own.

A wee bit about me – I am a mum in Northern Ireland and am passionate about my christian faith, family, blogging, digital scrapbooking, making jewellery and photography.

I have started doing some giveaways, and have some exciting ones coming soon. Why not subscribe so you won’t miss a thing!

Here are a few photos of my family and my world from the past few weeks to give you a wee glimpse of what I love.

Here are a few things I have made

digital scrapbooking layouts for myself

and for othersI am taking part in Project 365, taking a photo a day for 2009, and each week I am making a weekly summary of my photos using digital scrapbooking.

  1. Hi, from across the pond in New Jersey! *waves* Your blog is so pretty, I love the header. I’d love to make jewelry…

  2. I was doing the 365 project, but gave it up. I do take pics just about every day, but was getting confused on when I took the pics & was getting behind.

  3. Popping in from The Creative Junkie – I’m one of those other loyal commenters on Andy’s blog. ๐Ÿ™‚


    I’m not at BlogHer right now, either! *sob sob* I’d love to hang with the other Cinderellas – hey, I even have a bunch of tiaras (well, okay, technically they’re my 6 year old’s tiaras) that we can wear! And fairy wings, too…

    Her magic wands don’t work, however. I’ve tried and tried, but the lawn *still* won’t mow itself and when the doorbell rings, it is never George Clooney or Hugh Jackman. Rats.

    Cheers from upstate NY! ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. OK, OK, OK … this is like the tenth post today that is about missing BlogHer … I still don’t understand what exactly BlogHer is? Maybe if I knew, I’d write my own post about missing it!
