I just lurve my floral punch craft

I spent another lovely day with the very talented Jane Gill yesterday. You can imagine, the purple lover that I am, how excited I was to see the card we would be making by the end of the day. It took two hours to make the Lily, but for those of you who have dabbled in a bit of FPC will know that the first ones always take a long time. Off to have another go now so that I can remember how to do it - bye bye clocks ticking...

Sad times for my Boy

My close friends will know that life in the Garner household has been a bit stressful these past few months. My lovely son, who goes to Ovingdean Hall School for the Deaf in Brighton heard in February this year that his wonderful school is closing for good. Tomorrow is the final day and we're all so sad. The children are all going separate ways, their parents having had to fight to get them into other specialist schools. The staff and teachers all having received their redundancy notices at Easter have continued school life in the only way they know - outstanding!

My boy's teacher has worked at the school for 25 years and I'm proud to call her my friend. Here is the Thank You book I have made for her.
