I keep meaning to update you my blog...

I've been back from Devon since Wednesday and I kept putting off updating my blog until I had my pictures to show you. I still haven't had time to edit any, or even upload some to the PC so that part will have to wait. I though I really should post something.

Our holiday in Devon and Somerset was....well....in a word...WET! lol

It was wet when we got there and it just kept raining. The campsite was lovely with a river down next 2 one row of campers and the mill stream down the other next to another row of campers. The Mill had been converted into a home for the owners but it was still in working condition.

On Sunday they opened up their home so we could have a look. Inside the living room were the massive round millstones rotating in the middle of their lounge! As the campsite was in Exmoor, the amenities were limited as they cannot build anything new. It was so lovely and peaceful though.

That was whilst it wasn't flooding! The said river and stream (3 feets from our tent) rose 3 feet to the very edge of the bank. A few more inches and we would have been packing up to come home again! Thankfully the water dropped overnight and we could finish our holiday.

We got to see some lovely little towns - Porlock, Lynmouth, Watchet, Taunton and so much more. We visited a honey farm, cider farm and Cheddar Gorge. Went on the West Somerset Steam Railway and even got to visit a gorgeous little shop - Butterflies & Roses (see the link on the right).

We travelled quite a bit but there was so much we wanted to do. It's so far away from us normally that we wanted to pack everything in.

I will get my photos sorted and upload some soon.

I did find about a zillion little villages that I wanted to move to and open up my own little shabby chic store. (I'll keep dreaming hehe.)

Back to normality...

Easy Craft Projects has 2 brand new projects - Basic Jewellery Techniques & Notelets. Go check them out. Also, don't forget about our brand new forum and also that my first class goes live on Friday!

We've also lost a few of our writers at Craft Journal so keep your eyes peeled because we will be looking for some more soon!

I'm still busy with everything Altered Chic. I will be getting the blog up and running shortly. Candles added to our online shop. The new Christmas ranges revealed and so much more.
