Sweet like Candy

Good Evening Everyone!

I know...I've been missing for quite a while now. Life has been more than hectic for quite a few months now, and I just haven't seemed to have had a minute to get on here and post something interesting...simply because all I have done is work, work, work so there has been nothing interesting to tell you about! I just shut myself away in my studio and seem to run around like a headless chicken trying to get everything done!

However, at the moment I'm trying to give myself a little breathing space (more about why in a moment) and my bosses and colleagues are being wonderful in helping me to achieve this. There is nothing so reassuring to know that your friends and work colleagues (I also include them under the title 'friends') are there for you when you need them.

At the moment I'm having some health issues which are causing me some worry, and I'm sure there is nothing to worry about - but seeing as worrying is what I do best, I may as well carry on. On Thursday I'm having further hospital tests, and apparently it could be up to 5 weeks before I receive any results - not good for a worrier like me. I will keep you updated, after all it's only fair now I have mentioned it!

As I said everyone, and I mean EVERYONE at docrafts is wonderful! I have had help with my workload in general, help with samples for Create and Craft, the list goes on, and I thank them from the bottom of my heart. I was scheduled to go to Australia to teach a cardmaking class in April, but because of what's going on, my wonderful Bestest Friend ever Sheila Halliwell will be going in my place. I honestly don't know what I'd do without her...She is one of the most important people in my life...I'm getting all teary just thinking about it! And, seeing as she is called Sheila, she'll fit in perfectly too! I know that everyone who gets to meet her in Oz will love her just as much as I do. Throw a shrimp on the barbie for me Sheils!

Now onto the title of my Blog post. I have a problem...I can no longer fit in my craft room what with all the goodies in there. So....there will be a clear out occurring very soon in the form of FREE BLOG CANDY! As there will be so much, I may offer a number of Blog Candies over a few days, so please check back at what's going on!

I'm hoping also to be back soon with photos of Olympia, and news of all the fun and laughs that we had. I love getting together with the docrafts team and designers, you will NEVER meet a better bunch of people!

That's all for now. Lots of Love,

Lovely to hear from you, sorry to hear about your health = although not sure what it is - but i hope your results come clear. Have been watching Create and Craft, love the demos and see a lot more shows this week. Love to get pictures of samples from the all loved up range as they did not show in the Forever Friends show, but take care of yourself. Would love your thoughts on my recent cards x

Hi Clare, it was nice to meet you on Sunday at the show. I am sorry to hear you are not feeling too good, I hope they can get to the root of what is making you feel ill soon. I hope you will be able to take things a bit easier and that your friends are supporting you, it makes life easier. I knwo what you mean about the worrying, I am a worrier too, I even worry about worrying too much! If there is anything I can do please let me know :-)

Hi Clare,
It was great to find you on Ideal Extra last week, Sky TV has had to go 'cos of the nasty old Credit Crunch so I hardly ever get a C&C fix these days. The Forever Friends samples were gorgeous - well done to you, Sheila and everyone else involved. So sorry to hear you're not feeling well, everything is crossed for a speedy recovery and good news very soon.
Love from Jess in Lincoln
P.S. Please enter me for some yummy Blog Candy x
