Books and a Break

Well, my exhibition might be over and my phone box has been and gone. The Jubilee weekend celebrations are also done and dusted...


but I'm still raising the remainder of the hire fee and it is still Jubilee year and so after a marathon effort of photo editing this afternoon, the left over Jubilee matchboxes have gone into my Etsy shop.


Each book and matchbox combination is unique, each one comes with a numbered and signed certificate and each one would make a perfect little commemorative gift of this special year.


This is last opportunity to own a miniature Jubilee book and matchbox. I won't be making any more. 


I am however finishing off the remainder of original orders and have a bit of a problem. I have an order for a "Fish" themed book from Lynne Day but seem to have no email record or any other sort of record of the order so have no way of contacting Lynne to tell her the book is ready. Lynne... if you are reading this please get in touch!


I never like it much when bloggers announce on their blogs that there are difficult things going on in their lives but they can't talk about them... perhaps because I'm naturally nosey and I want to know what's going on... so I always think why mention them at all. But I'm going to do just that. Things aren't great at the moment... just family stuff, nothing life threatening but I don't feel much like blogging right now. So I only mention it by way of explaination for my possible absence over the next few days... or maybe weeks. Of course having made that announcement I'll probably be back tomorrow. See you soon.

  2. Gina, I'm so sorry that things are difficult for you and totally understand your need to take a blogging break. I'll miss you and hope to see you back again soon, or whenever it feels right.

  3. Oh Gina, so sorry things are not good at the moment. Would love to have a cup of tea and a chat if it would help, but fully understand if it won't. Thinking of you!

  4. Sorry to hear that things are not as good as they should be. Hope time will improve things greatly for you. Sometimes details are not needed for others to send their best wishes to you. That is all I needed last September and if I remember rightly some of those good wishes to me came from you.
    Take care!!

    I am so excited about the book and can't wait to see how the matchbox is decorated.

  14. Have a good rest Gina, you've been working flat out so it's not surprising to need some "time out".

  18. What do they say? Sometimes a change is as good as a rest? You've been going at a feverish pace for a while now culminating in the exhibition so time to focus on other things and take a breather is understandable. I think you know we'll all still be here when you return!

  22. Well I'm one who has done the 'can't blog - too difficult' thing more than once, so I totally understand. I don't comment much, but I always read your blogs, Gina. You are so very talented.

    I hope Life sorts itself out soon for you. But in the meantime, don't forget to look after yourself, as well as everyone else. x
