Not a normal Blog post!

Hello bloggists and thank you for stopping by.
It’s not my usual tutorial today, and I hope you’ll bear with me just for today while I do my best to explain.

For the past few weeks, we (that’s my husband and I) have had a bit of a tricky time of it.  His parents are not as young as they were and his dad, in particular, needs looking after as he is registered blind and very hard of hearing as well.  My MIL is his primary carer and she’s been in hospital recovering from a severe chest infection. (She’s going to be OK, but it was a very nasty infection and she’s going to need some time to recover).

As you can probably imagine, this means a lot of running around making sure that they are both looked after, on top of the full-time jobs we both have.  Crafting is keeping me sane but I have less time to spend on it at the moment.  

So, today, instead of a project, I thought I’d talk about some of the less-sexy supplies and a bit about stamping basics.  I hope you find it useful.

Normal service will be resumed on Thursday!

Crafty hugs,



  1. Hi Keren,Am amazed you even had time to post this video with all that is going on in your life right now. Prayers to you and all the family that you will have strength to deal with what is needed and that all will be well again.
    Thank you for all your posts and encouragement, it really is appreciated and so very useful. Hugs from UK

  2. Sorry, brain not in gear, you are also in UK :-) so hugs from Surrey.

  3. Thank you very much for even taking the time to make a video with everything that is going on in your life just now. Thoughts are with you and your family in these challenging circumstances. ((((((Loads of hugs))))))

  4. Thank you Keren for taking time out of you extremely busy life to let all of
    us know what has been going on in your life. You have to look after yourself
    too so that you are able to look after everyone else in your life. Please
    take care. Know that lots and lots of people really enjoy your videos (whenever you can manage to do them). Lots of love from St.Helens.


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to leave one.
