Missed It!

well wouldn't you know it...

yesterday was my blogs first birthday
and i missed it...
not due to my own lack of diligence though,
my computer wouldn't function.

it wouldn't even turn itself on for me...
well, i pressed the 'on' button but there was no response,
just a little flicker from the monitor,
that was all.

fortunately we have at least one computer savvy person
in this household...
and mr t took a look
got me another video card
& we are again.
{though i think the colour needs a bit of adjustment!}

i did a bit of crocheting this morning....

it's the first time in ages that
i've even felt like doing some...
then i just had the urge to create something in green and cream.

i don't quite know what it's going to turn into yet either...
but while the urge lasts i'm going with it!

i'm still going to have a giveaway for my first blog birthday
but as 'madeit' is having problems
i will delay that and let you know when that will be.

i took part in a 'pay it forward' exercise
and being one of the first three commenters
on shez's blog... 'enjoying life'
she sent me a beautiful black bag that she made!

...thanks shez!
i love it!

it is soft and textured,
fully lined with pockets inside for keeping keys or other knick-knacky things...
i'm thinking it will be perfect for taking out in the evening.

now it is my turn to pay it forward.

the first three people who say they would like me to make them
something just for them...
will get something during the next year...
yes you have a whole year to pay it forward...
then when you receive something from me,
it's your turn to pay it forward
to three people on your blog!

if you want to play..then just say it
with a comment!
if you don't say specifically that you want in
then I won't take it that way...ok?

sounds like fun doesn't it!

see you over at 'our creative spaces'!
