Sky dive for Exeter Leukaemia Fund

Oh my word, in just over a week - next Friday, myself and Howard, and lots of other fantastic people are jumping out of a plane to raise money for Exeter Leukaemia Fund. I'm really excited, and would love to raise as much money as possible (everything I raise will go to the charity, not to pay for my jump!).

If you can sponsor me - even a little bit, then please visit my page at:

Thank you so much for your support.

Craft club

Wow, it's been ages since I did a posting hasn't it, how rude. Well I'm back, and with great news that I've not just booked a Craft Club this month, but actually have it sorted for the next 3 months!!! Hey, me organised! When does that happen.

Now you've picked yourself up off the floor I'll let you know the dates:

24th May
28th June
26th July

For anyone who hasn't been before the club is held at Jubilee Hall, Wincheap Road, Wincheap, Canterbury. It's on the corner of the road that you turn down to get to Homebase (if that helps!). There is a tiny free car park, a larger pay and display car park - and then of course there is Homebase, who have a big old car park.

The idea of the club is just to get together and craft. Share idea's tips and techniques and put the world to rights. There is a small fee of £2 (I think, it may have been £3 I keep forgetting, but I'll check with the ladies).

We have tea, coffee and biccies, and of course people generally bring things to play with - so if there's a new technique you've learnt then bring it along to share. Or if you have something you've never used and haven't go a clue what to do with it, then similarly bring it along. Not guaranteeing us lot will know - but bet we can come up with some smashing suggestions!

We have a "rent a stamp" box, where there is a small fee to rent a stamp until the next club - the money goes into the club kitty so eventually we will have ooodles of cash to get a demonstrator in or buy supplies.

If you have lots of crafty stuff you no longer use, bring it along to try and sell. All we ask is you put a percentage into the crafty kitty.

I hope that sounds good for those of you who many not have been before - to the regulars then - sorry, taken me ages to sort, but I'm really looking forward to seeing you on Monday.

Skydive Sorted

Gulp, can you believe it, the skydive is but a month away - I'm so excited! There's quite a big group of us doing the jump, so there will be plenty of nerves about - but imagine the buzz after we've done it, brilliant. I'm sure I'll need pushing out of the plane, that's the mega scary bit isn't it.

Obviously I'm hoping to raise loads of money as well, so would appreciate any donations anyone can give. The jump is for and being organised by Exeter Leukaemia Fund.

My fundraising page is:

Thank you to anyone who can help raise some pennies. I will be getting the photo's so will share the experience with you!xxx
