Jill in France

Jill in France Report 9 Apr 2012 15:37

Helloooooo, Taken me ages to get back on here today but have found you all:0)
Hope you are all keeping well and still busy carding plus hope no one has started their Christmas cards yet !!!
Building work nearly finished and very pleased with the transformation esp my new kitchen, which I love .
So far, no craft groups but did do my first craft fair and made £60 selling cards, bookmarks, and friendly Plastic earrings and pendants.
Loving village life and lots to do plus only a short walk to the beaches and 80 paces to a lovely pub that does great food.
Very lucky with our neighbours, he is a police dog handler so our Bailie fits in very well lol
I have even been offered a few hours with my old company, so extra craft spending money, all in all, everything has just fallen neatly in place.
xxx Jill, but not in France any more lol

I have just welcomed you back on the Greaders thread Jill, but I will say it again. Your new home sounds idyllic, I am very envious, especially being near the beach and in what sounds like a 'real' village.
You will have to change your name to 'Jill in the I.O.M.'!

Evening ladies what a miserable week it has been with all the rain and hail but at least we had some sunshine. Thought we should be getting nice light April showers not the torrential stuff we have been getting. Hope you all received the emails about the birthday cards received, no more birthdays now till June.
Hope Sylvia is OK seems a while since we heard from her.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Hi Ladies
Jo, emails arriving OK thank you :-) Weather been lovely over here, long may it last.
Been busy getting my blog back on track now that I have settled down a bit and been busy making up lots of cards for a group to sell to raise funds. Have had an enquiry about classes so fingers crossed they can be started again as miss my crafty get together.
Hope you are all keeping well

xx Jill

You are so lucky with the weather Jill, the showers here have been so heavy, with a little sun in between. I have managed to lose your blog addy, perhaps you could send it to me again. Love to look at your cards so much inspiration. Love looking at Anns blog as well some lovely cards, scrapbooking pages and jewellery and Heathers new blog has some lovely cards and jewellery. Will be great if you can get some classes set up again it must be lovely to craft in a group and learn and chat at the same time. Gets boring watching crafting on tv for inspiration!!


Jill have found your blog addy!!

Hello Ladies, hope you are all keeping well and have a good weekend planned.
At last my classes are starting up again, good excuse to by more stash :-) I have also been asked to do a workshop for a WI group so its all taking off.
Since moving to the Island we are finding plenty to do and its a lovely friendly safe place to live, I have also started two classes of Zumba !! I used to always work out before moving to France so good to be able to get back to trying to get a bit fitter again.

xx Jill

Evening ladies, hope you are all keeping OK lovely sunshine here today but very cold. Managed to get a line full of washing dry which makes a lovely change.
Have not done much crafting in the last couple of weeks, but managed to make 3 anniversary cards and 3 birthday cards in the last couple of day, so quite pleased with myself!! Just need now to get a stock of cards ready so that it is not a last minute rush as it always is for me, but that is just wishful thinking.....

Hugs Joxx
