Big Birthdays & New Pics!

So first of all apologies for being a bad blogger of late I have been very lazy and let my blog lapse a little.  I promise to try harder and have set myself the challenge of blogging at least once a week from now on.  Right first things first I have a big milestone birthday coming up this weekend and now that the phase has passed of me weeping and wailing and say 'Why God why??' I have decided to embrace it and live up to the saying Life begins at .... yes I am still not at the point of saying the actual number yet!

Rather than having lots of little gifts I decided to ask everyone if they could club together and get me something I have wanted for a while.  Whilst my little Brother machine has done me proud I think it is time he stepped down for a little while and made way for his Big Brother!

I have also purchased some photographic equipment to help me take better pictures so have got this,

and these!

So hopefully I can improve my pictures now and not have to wait for the sun to come out to get half decent shots!

Right so thats it for now I have some fab birthday celebrations coming up and am going somewhere I have wanted to go for years so will share pictures with you next week!

Ah, I have the same photo tent, it does make a huge difference.

Happy Birthday!

I hope you have a great birthday and that the new equipment helps you in your crafty endeavours.

lovely pressies, lucky you!

and age really is only just a number, as long as you never stop playing and having fun, you never grow old (or so i'm trying to tell myself as a milestone birthday creeps closer!).

Big milestone birthdays are the best - you can celebrate for days!

Great gifts, you are going to have a blast using those!
