Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi , and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

May I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy, and Health New Year.

Thank you so much for all your visits, and wonderful comments that you all make on my work.

My bungalow is still  all upside down from my kitchen refurb, and my craft room is all in boxes waiting for the heating to be done in the New Year. 
I am getting lots of with drawl symptoms from not being able to craft.

Hubby has recently had another fit which has left him very unsteady again. 

I have had to have a smaller desk in my craft room to accommodate the new heater, and so I have changed computers with hubby, and lost my photo editing program of Picassa 3 as they no longer do that one,
So if anyone knows of a good, and easy one to use please let me know.

Thank you for your visit, and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Well it seems that there are a lot of crafters who have had their craft space in upheaval but lucky enough for me it was only for two days while we had new radiators in but two days with no heating in December is not very pleasant up North but back to normal now and hope you soon will be too.
Hope you have had a lovely Christmas day.

My Sister suffered from fits and it was really frightening some of the places she had them in. She would not go on medication though but when her Hubby was in hospital after having a stroke and she had been to visit him, she had a fit in the hospital grounds she did decide to take the medication and touch wood, she has not had one since
The last one she had was in her kitchen and while it is not a thing to laugh about, she was cooking and had a jug of gravy in her hand when she had the fit and David rang us to tell us and we shot up to their house and she was lying on the floor, totally out of it and with a lovely paramedic and her next door neighbours were there for some reason and the neighbour said to me that "she has messed herself during the fit"
Well she hadn't it was the jug of gravy that she had dropped during the fit

Best wished for the New Year and looking forward to having you back.

Sending love and many good wishes Jenny! You have so much happening right now. I strongly recommend you try GIMP - it's free to download and I use it to edit my photos! Can help you from afar if you need some pointers!

Merry Christmas Jenny! I hope hubby is well again soon and that your remodel is soon done so life can get back to normal. I know it is hard not to be crafting, so hope you can get to crafting again soon! I have no clue what editing programs are out there. I use iPiccy, which is free. Here is a link if you are interested in looking. Hugs, Brenda
