My profile

Sarah Youde (aka monroegirl)
Plymouth, UK.

I love to scrap and I love to stitch. I also love reading, eating and the odd glass of red wine! I only wish I had more time to do all the things I love. Most of my time is taken up looking after a couple of other things I love and they are my two gorgeous children Ben and Charlotte. They ARE gorgeous, I am not biased, I have been blessed with beautiful children which is a good thing because I have such wonderful subjects for my scrapbooking addiction.

I am married to Mark and we will celebrate our fifteenth wedding anniversary in July - we are just as happy now as when we first met. He would rather I didn't spend any money on scrapbooking or cross stitch stash but if I didn't do that I would be perfect and surely that would be really boring! Anyway, this blog is a sort of diary / gallery and I enjoy updating my blog for myself and my family but any visitors are welcome :o)

I am so excited! I have a wonderful husband :)

I have just received my Canon EOS350D! I can't tell you how long I have wanted one of these cameras and now I have it. I am very impatiently waiting for the battery to charge. Why do they take so long? I want to PLAY.

Actually, I haven't got a clue how to use my new baby but I am sure going to have a lot of fun learning.

As for the crop that I was packing in the last time I posted (so long ago!!) it was fabulous as usual. I absolutely love going to the Scraps in the City crop the girls are all sooooo lovely and I love them all :) My class went well I think, here is the lo that I did for the class:

Tracie was at the crop from Little Cottage Crafts, she is lovely and I spent some time chatting with her. I really want to go to her crop on February 3rd but it is the weekend before we move house so I think I will have to give that one a miss. Coming from Mullion means that I have to stay the night and it makes a one day crop into a weekend away which I can't really afford to do so close to moving, I am gutted. Maybe next month Tracie!

Well my husband is on his way home from work and my battery should be charging nicely so it is time for me to pick Ben up from school, cook tea and then play, play, play......
