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.

Thank you so much for your visits throughout 2018 especially this last couple of months when I couldn't visit you.
I really appreciate your support, and your lovely comments, and also get well wishes for hubby.

The kitchen is all finished now, and I have managed to just about get everything back into cupboards.
My craft room is still in boxes waiting for the New Heater to be fitted in the New Year.
I have had to get rid of my old very big desk, and buy a smaller one to accommodate the new heater.
It has been a good thing as my craft room needed a over haul, and tidy up, but it's been a lot of hard work, and being ruthless with crafting items I have had for many moons.
I can't wait to get crafting again, and blogging as it seems so long now since I have had chance to visit you all.
Mind you when it's all back together again do you think I will find anything???????

So I digress my main aim today is to wish everyone  A very Happy, Health, New Year.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Happy New Year Jenny. I occasionally blitz my craft room and it stays tidy for all of five minutes but it’s my happy place so I don’t mind really. I’m usually at my most creative when I can’t find my desk lol :). Wishing you the best if everything this year. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

Happy New Year Jenny. Hope it will be a good one for you and hubby. I'm dedicating the whole of January to sorting out my craft room. I need to turn the table round that is in the centre of the room but it is piled high with stuff that I either need to find a home for or put away where it belongs before I can do that . I did make a start with putting design papers back in the right folders though. Needle in a hay stack springs to mind. Lol. Hugs Mrs A.

Wishing you and hubby a happy, healthy new year. Every time I reorganize I can't find things! I will look and look where it was before but don't remember where I now put it now. Sometimes you just need an overhaul and getting your new heater is a good thing and now is the time to do it.

Happy New year to you also and good luck with getting your craft room back into action. I have 'stuff' which I've had for many years and could do with a good sort out and downsizing but as always very reluctant to get rid of anything. I must be ruthless and make some space!!!

So glad that you have managed to get your kitchen sorted and that you are eager to get crafting again.
Love the firework display and also the e-card, thank you so very much.
Really looking forward to having you back in your craft room so we can see your fab creations.
Glad Hubby seem to be ok at the moment too.
I am away 5th - 19th Jan so if you get back into crafting during that period and I do not comment, you will know why.
Happy & Healthy New Year to you and Tony.
