I'm still here.......

......but having evaluated all my crafting supplies and the fact that I have approximately 300 handmade cards stored in boxes in various locations around the house I have decided to stop making cards and concentrate instead on my scrapbooking as I feel that has more of a purpose.

I've been busy selling various cardmaking supplies (on Ebay and Facebook) but still have the cards sat around and short of giving them away am now at a loss what to do with them so would welcome any ideas!!

I shall return soon (when my crafting area is less full of Jiffy bags, envelopes and tape) with scrapbook layouts - well, that's the plan!!

Hoping someone out there is still reading this and may want to return...........
