About Me

My photo
My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

Journalling - Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep

Still not had a chance to make a card today so thought I'd share a journal page.

This little chick sums up just how relaxing our caravanning holiday was especially on two particularly hot days when we just sat in our deckchairs doing absolutely nothing, except for a BBQ, lol.

Actually completed my first moleskin journal now, filled with journalling from Morocco and the caravan trip. So in other words 'Summer 2010'.

I'll upload some more pages over the next few days but won't bore you with them all, x


  1. The pink and orange make it look so hot hot hot! The chicken made me laugh - if you were a chubby person I would have pictured it as you but as you are so slim I guess it is more like me.
    Love it!

  2. OMG Alison that's slightly weird and creepy LOL love the colours of your page though.

  3. You make me laugh Neet. Just been to Dorset, so cream teas and cakes were on the daily menu. Back to the diet me thinks, lol, x

  4. Very colourful Alison, love the chick

  5. This is really great, Alison! Love the pink and orange colour combo and that chick with the parasol is just perfect!
