Hi everyone,

I haven't been posting latley as I have been ill and have felt like doing a lot of nothing!!! Had over a week of coughing constantly and had about 2 hours sleep, if that a night so I felt and looked awful. Then a bad ear infection developed and I haven't been able to hear hardly anything for over a week, but now I am on my third lot of antibiotics hopefully that might sort things out.  I can almost hear in one side now, of course with an ear infection it makes you very dizzy and disorientated so after all this I just want to feel well again!

Well after all this time I will post you a couple of photos from our holiday in Pembrokeshire back in March.  We had a great time the weather was good and we loved the villages we stayed in.  Pembrokeshire has the most beautiful, remote beaches, unspoilt and wild.  Some have enormous expances of sand when the tide is out and brilliant rock formations to get some fab photos (poor Nigel has to stand about while I do my David Bailey thing).  We also did a walking with hawks where we could have the hawks fly to the glove while we walked around

After having such a great holiday we came back to find out that sadly a friend had died while we were away, our daughter had split up with her boyfriend and that I would be made redudant in June.

Sorry all doom and gloom in this post but here are some lovely photos.......
Hi Guys,
Ok ,so now I've joined my partner in crime Chris at on the what's on your work desk wednesday then perhaps I'd better show you all what's on my desk today( as I've joined on a Thursday).
I have a you tube channel where I post video tutorials,  my channel name is hannahjulienigel so I hope you'll have a look as I like to share my crafty ideas.  At the moment I love doing mini scrapbooks so thats what most of the videos are for.
On my work desk at the moment is a shaker which I've just completed which will go on the front cover of a mini album. Its using the wonderful new graphic 45 papers the old curiosity shoppe collection 8 x8 papers.  You are having a sneek peak as I am filming the tutorial at the moment.  The other bits are some pockets which are in another tutorial, I had been asked to do a simple album with some pocket inserts which is really easy.  Hope you might have a go, check it out.

Thanks to my dear friend Chris for introducing me to julia's site at as I have just been made redundant I should have more time to craft!!! But sadly no money to buy the materials with!!!

Have a happy crafting week.
