I looked through my photos and found one I'd been hoarding of Boo helping nanny decorate the tree. I was sceptical I had any Christmas paper but found a sheet from Pink Paislee which I had gotten in a Hey Little Magpie grab bag.

As the title suggests I FINALLY managed to do some scrapping, and boy did it feel good! I wanted to do some scrapping over the weekend but needed something to kick start my mojo, so I checked back through some of the Sketchy Scrappers sketches for some inspiration. I decided to have a go at the December/January sketch which I originally thought of skipping, purely because it screams Christmas and to be honest I don't have a lot of Christmas photos or stash!

Welcome to week 4 of my 100 days of happiness. I'm not going to lie it's getting harder to find something each day that has made me smile, not because there hasn't been anything I'm just worried about sharing the same type of photos each time. But anyway, without further ado this was week 4.

Another week has gone by and I'm still keeping up with my 100 days of happiness. So without further ado this was week 3.

Welcome to week two of my 100 days of happiness. I have to say I'm quite chuffed I'm still going as some days when I work all day it can be hard to think what to take a quick photo of. So this was my week

I'm slowly easing myself back into doing some crafting after having a bit of a break. I brought some new stash last week from Hey Little Magpie and did I use any of this?...No I didn't, but it did give me kick up the bum to get making something. I had a couple of thank you cards to make, as well as a birthday card for my dad. For my thank you cards I looked through my Hello Kitty tin of odds and ends I've cut from cut apart sheets as I knew I had some thank you bits from an old Pebbles collection in there. From there I looked through my 6x6 pads which I find handy for cards and went from there.

To draw a line under the pants end to last year I decided to have another go at something I tried doing before and failed, the 100 days of happiness challenge. Ok I lie, I was thinking about starting the challenge again from New Years Day anyway and the events from last month just spurred me on more. For those not familiar with the challenge, basically you share a photo a day of something that made your day or just made you smile and feel better for even a brief moment. So this was my week one:
I thought I'd try a different planner this year and one I ordered from Hobbycraft arrived and so far I'm impressed especially as it was £12, a lot cheaper than the Mambi one I originally wanted! I received more happy mail the following day when my cheeky order arrived! This inspired me to not only do some crafting the next day, making a couple of ThanKYou cards and a birthday card for my dad, but to also have a de stash the next day! The perfect excuse to treat myself to even more lovely stash, ssh!
So that was week one, what will week two have in store?

Happy New Year! And in typical Jess fashion long time no blog! Well normal service has yet again resumed. In fairness things went a bit crazy work wise and crappy personal wise towards the end of 2016 but we made it through it! Short and simple blog post to welcome you all to 2017 but hopefully more post will follow soon. Xx
