Craft v Cleaning

Morning lovely friends and followers and thank you so much for dropping by xxx

This morning I have a confession - oh no what is that ?

Well when I worked at 110 miles an hour I used to employ a cleaning lady.

Unfortunately due to some health stuff I haven t been able to work
at an employed job for the last 12 years and this is why I got into Craft.

The keeping on top of a house with 2 adult men has been getting me down for
some time and I have felt guilty when crafting instead of cleaning.

Well a month ago I met a fairy walking down our road aka my previous cleaning lady
and now she s doing 2 hours a week for me - so Tuesday is cleaning day for me 
and her and now the guilt is gone.

Shirley (cleaner) is off to see her family in Barbados and asked
me to make some cards for her and here they are.

Until the next time crafty hugs and blessings xxx

I would like to support the following Challenges -


  1. Two fabulous box cards, my favourites.xx
