Where did all the days go?

No DCM card from me this week. I've got rather bogged down with all sorts of stuff, someone must have stolen some of February because there certainly seems to have been at least a week's worth of days missing - or at least that's how it feels. I got so far behind that I've spent the first week of March trying to catch up with things that should really have been finished before February left the building.

Hopefully I'll be a better organised person for the remainder of this month and I'm going to try harder not to leave things till the last minute - or even the minute AFTER the last minute from now on. I wasn't a happy bunny at the beginning of this week, because I had so much left to do, but I've just about cleared the decks now so feel loads better.

Anyway, going back to the Daring Cardmakers for a minute....
It's our Aussie-Girl Mel's very first turn at dare-setting this week and she's chosen to
"Take a Break"
she's asked everyone to make cards with tea bags on them!
Now that's a different sort of challenge, eh? pop along to the DCM Blog and see what the Team has come up with this time

The BF Fundraising Auction for the Ellenor Wiseman Trust os now over.

We raised about £230 for the Trust, there are a few things still available to buy, so the final amount will probably be a bit more than that, which is wonderful. We're all soooo chuffed that it went so well and we are able to help just a little bit towards Kirsty Wiseman's little girl getting the treatment she needs.

The Anglo-Scots-Irish Circle Journal on Bumbleberry Crafts forum has just finished, since the beginning of July 2007 the books have been flying hither and thither between the three countries. How many miles our books have travelled I can't begin to imagine!

Anyway, they're all safely home again now and it's time to share my lovely book on here. My theme for this cj was "The Comfort Zone" and I asked everyone to share the special places, people and things which always make them feel safe and comfortable.
