I've been crafting again!

It feels like it's been so long (it really has!) I haven't done ANY crafting since my little girl was a baby and now she is coming up 3 and I have a son who is 15 months old!

I decided that rather than keeping all my craft bits in boxes ready for when I have room for a craft room, I would actually start using them again and it has relaxed me so much. I've been a little stressed, no sleep for over 15 months, working full time and trying to keep everything going at home has been so tough. Crafting has given me back some me time (even though it is currently stolen at odd times in the evening) and it has made a massive difference to my state of mind - so much so that I don't think I could go back to not crafting for any length of time!

I have also started a photography business, providing affordable portrait photography for families and pets. You can check out my website at http://www.laurenhaywardphotography.co.uk

Here are a couple of the cards I've made recently. They were taken in quite poor light on my phone camera (like I said I snatch craft time when I can!)

These were made using my Lili of the Valley art pads, nestabilities, craftwork cards greeting die cuts, stampin' up punches and the home card die cut was from Little Claire.
