postheadericon Staying As I Am! Lol :O)

Ok...Pmsl....You Ready?!

I was going to change my name etc...change me....but you what...Not Any More!
I have decided there is nothing wrong with my name hehe!
After getting so many emails regarding my change and friends asking why was i changing in the first place i thought you know what why change!!
I've been Laura's Designz now for a few years, thats's how people know me.

I guess i wanted to change because i felt i needed a new start.
But i have my new start, i don't need to change anything! Lol.

So what have i been up to lately....well.....

God i've been busy,
The summer holidays have been awesome.
We've been to Legoland with our best friends Jodie, Kevin and their beautiful boys Daniel & Reece.
Had an amazing time, weather was beautiful!
We've also just got back from another short break together at Gulliver's Land in Milton Keynes.
We travel everywhere together and plan on going back at Christmas Time as they have the most amazing christmas celebrations.
We've all been swimming and for day trips out...i have lots of photo's to sort through,
When i do i will add some.

I also am now on our local town commity.
We've had two brilliant family nights that we raised over £700 for Help For Heroes.
We have another coming up on 10th September so we hope to raise a bit more before we send the final amount off!
We've partied til dawn and loved every minute.
My PSP has helped make all the posters and invites and tickets so that was good!

A few of us mum's from our local school and town got together last week to go and see Abba the Tribute.
Myself, Jodie, Jade, Sharon, Tammy, Sarah, Michelle, & Sam all had a fantastic time bopping away to Abba and screaming out all the words, although poor Michelle's leg gave way and she ended up going to hospital! Thank goodness she's on the mend!
I wore the highest heels ever and my feet were in pieces for days lol!
Jade and I walked home bare footed and her feet were bleeding terrible!
But we both said the next day it was well worth it as it was such a great night. Lol
We're all going out again once kids are back at school!

So it's been a very busy 6 weeks!
My littlens go back to school Wednesday, Connor will be starting all day!!!!
I'm so nervous, i won't know what to do with myself..but i know he'll be fine and his big sister Kaci will take good care of him, plus his best friends are there with him in his class.
It's my birthday Monday coming and we'll all be celebrating together, i can't wait!
Jeez doesn't time fly when your having fun!

So i am making a new blog layout, that should be up soon and i have some kits in the making.
Although i haven't really been as much on here as i used to be i still enjoy this part of my life and won't neglect my friends.
I am a mod in the best ever forum TAGGER'S DEN.
I help out with weekly challenges and have the best online friends ever in there!
Come over and see us!

So that's about it for now.
Will be back soon with pictures and lots more!
Hugs and Love

postheadericon News!

Good Afternoon All.
I am writing to let you know of some changes that will be happening in the near future.
I have been away for a while because my heart has not been into kit making now for some time.
My whole life style has done a much has changed and for the better!

I have been enjoying life away from the computer so much more than i used to,
I'd got myself into a rut and a never ending circle that just kept repeating and repeating itself.
It wasn't healthy for me, it made me sad and depressed and very negative.
Finally i have shaken that part of my life and now have found true happieness, true friendship and posativity again!!!!

Although i am extreamly happy I do miss creating and so want to get back into it but i feel like i need a whole new me...I want everything to be shiny and new!
Which means new designer name, new ideas, new look, new everything!!!
I want a whole new start and feel this will benifit me and everyone else who has stood by my side.

So a lot will have to be changed,
I won't tell you my new name yet but i love it and the closest to me do too!
This will all take a while to get sorted and a new blog plus everything that goes with it so please bare with me.

While all this is happening i have chosen for now to stick to just two stores to sell my current designs at.
This is because i cannot keep spreading myself so thin.
I'd rather be the best i can be in two stores than give a little of me between 6.
I hope you can understand that.
So until my big reveal i am going to have a sale on all my Laura's Designz kits.
It will be a huge sale so keep your eyes peeled!!!!
Big hugs Laura

postheadericon Hiya -x-

Hello Everyone!
A huge apology for not being around for a while.
As some of you may know my husband is having some medical problems concerning a growth between his ear drum and his brain.
This has led me to be away from PC life a lot lately.
He had his first operation Monday and has recovered very well.
But he has the main op in the next 2-3 weeks.
This op will be 6-7 hours long as they have so much to do.

So needless to say i will be off and on from designing and internet life.
I know i haven't gotten any kits out since valentine's but i will be tryin to make a kit soon!
Hope you like my quick easter blog layout!
I have made one for my friend Patty of Honored Scraps.
Will hope to get this done for her sometime this evening once our time zone gap wakes up lol.
Then i can show you all!

Don't forget if you fancy a dream blog, made from scratch using your own dreams and ideas just email me at my contact email to the left side box.
These help me take my mind off everything!
Really enjoy making them.

Hoping you are all well.
Hugs Laura

Mandy wanted a special blog and home for her mum's memories and kit to be hosted and so i came up with this design.

I'm so pleased Mandy likes what i created.
And so i ask if there are any designers out there that would like to help in Mandy's mum's charity kit
please email me and i will pass your information on to Mandy.

If anyone else would like a memorial blog please don't hesitate to ask.

postheadericon For Those That Have Asked After My Hubby x

Thank you firstly for the lovely emails and posts on facebook asking after my hubby
who has been having trouble with his ears.
The ear that is particually bad is his left one.
Basically about ten/eleven years ago just before Spencer and I met his ear drum burst and left him partially deaf in that ear.
He has had a few ear infections in this ear but this last couple of months it has been terrible.
It started one evening when a arge piece of something awful literally fell out of his ear.
We thought it might be just a bad case of wax and dirt.
This happened a few times, then it started ooozing a clear liquid.
He went to the doctors and was given the usual anti-biotics.
As the week went on the ear began to bleed.
I mean every night he'd wake up to blood stained pillows.
Three lots of strong antibiotics later the blood was still pooring.
Last Monday night i sent him to A&E because i was just freaking out.
They sent him home as there was no ENT (EAR,NOSE,THROAT) specialist there!!!!

I made him another appointment at the doctors and while he was there this doctor obviously saw something he didn't like the look of, he immediately called the hospital and made him an appointment for then and there.
So off we went to the hospital.
They had to vaccume a lot of infection and blood away frm the drum.
The specialist noticed that he may have a pocket of abnormal cells near his drum.
Aparently this can be caused by severe infections but these cells can spread into the bone and even the brain!
At this we both panicked as you would but because the specialist's boss wasn't there we had to make another appointment for this morning,
He was given a mega strong antibiotic that looks like horse pills, we wondered if they went up ya ass they are that big and some ear drops.

Spencer had to have some suctioning again, then the head ENT specialist came to see him.
He had a good look and decided to burn a section of his drum to basically see behind and around the drum.
He also took 3 biopsies to send away.
He said it's more than likely spence has these growths now that they were worried about.
The biopsies will be in this time next week and we have to go again to see them.
Obviously we are worried.
It means Spencer will have to have a CT scan to see if it's spread then an operation to remove the crap then
reconstruct his ear drum and ear canals.

My hubby is a big strong fella but his ears are his soft spot.
In fact he is so phobic of anything touching his ears for years he hasn't gotten a drop of water in them.
So he is being mega brave, i'm so proud of him!

So any prayers will be very much appreciated.
We will beat whatever comes our way!
We are a very strong couple and we have a fantastic family around us!
So that's about it for now until next Monday we won't know anything else.
When we do i'll let you know.

Thanks again for all the well wishes, they mean a lot.
I thought it easier to write on here then i don't have to write it everywhere lol.
Right i'm off to get's my bro-in-laws birthday today!!
Take our minds off things.

When all else and friends will pull you through!
Hug Laura
