Still Sad, in a different way!!!

Hello Blog friends, followers and passers by.  Hope you are all well and enjoying some sunshine.  The sun is shining here at the moment but dark clouds are hovering!!!  Maybe just maybe they will disappear, we can always live in hope.
I am taking a real back seat from Blogging as from today.  A lot of you will know I have a great "fear" of who is looking in on these Blogs......not just mine!!!   I never say we are away from the house for any length of time.  Living very rural, the house is vulnerable even though we have alarms and other safety measures in place.  
I have just found out that someone looking in on "my Blog", has caused a bit of trouble and upset with a very dear and loved friend.  I will NOT let anyone use "my Blog" as a way of "hurting others".  There is too much hurt out there without someone adding to it.  Saturday`s events has put everything into perspective for me.  
The best way for me is not Post anything for a while.   This person has not won!!! by any means.  It is actually making things very much stronger in other directions.

So getting away from all that, I have something to show you:-

This is how many of my flowers start off.  Die cut, spritzed and squashed

Then this happens:-
They are then used to do this:-
I have decorated the top of a box with some of the ones above
Box was decorated with BoBunny Paper from a Crafters Companion Cd
Leaves were colured using a great tip John Next Door gave on a demo on C&C 
He used all the shades of green he had plus, yellow, orange and brown blended then altogether.
John used that to Die cut leaves, its brilliant I love it. 

Right that`s it from me for now
I will still be looking in and commenting on as many of your Blogs as possible.
Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments and the support you have given me in the past 4 years.  Hope to see you later in the year.
Love and Hugs to all
xxxxx

  1. I'm so sorry to hear of your troubles with your blog. It's such a shame that something that gives you such happiness can be used to hurt others and that someone would do that! It just goes back to the fact there are a lot of Crazies out there! Love your pretty flowers and they look wonderful on the box. See you when you return!

  2. Hi Patricia,

    So, so sad to read your post from Saturday and today, how awful for Maureen, I do hope she is as well as can be expected, such a shock at any time. Then your post today, how sick can people be, so sorry it has affected your blogging but I fully understand your reasons and what a great friend you are thinking of your friend. If you know who they are you can contact the police as it is harassment.

    Love, love , love your flowers, amazing you can get that look from when you die cut them and they look beautiful on a box or card.

    Take care Patricia, we will miss you on here, you were one of the first to be my blogger friend and I will look forward to your return whenever you are ready. Hopefully if you plan on going to the NEC in Nov maybe we can meet up.

    Love & Hugs

  3. I just CAN NOT BELIEVE some one would use you r blog as a way to make trouble...gosh you are the nicest person around and for someone to do this is making me sick. So much garbage out there why can't they just get a life of their own...I am angry at this person and don't blame you but gosh please don't let that keep you away...you are too inspirational...look at these flowers. Gosh...
    now, are they made out of a crepe paper as that is what it looks like and also what shape die is used, a bit hard for me to tell...as you know I love making flowers and may like to try this one...

    on another note, regarding scum, someone actually Stole my ID, my old email address and my old blog, then they sell it to scammers....I actually found out the link by googling my old blog name and google can't do a darned thing...work that out..

  4. Morning Patricia, So sorry to hear about the upset that has been caused on your Blog, I can't understand some people !!!
    I remember John doing that demo with the different greeny colours and then die-cutting leaves from it, a great idea. Your flowers are stunning, I can't believe they start like that and end up like that, stunning.
    See you soon, take care.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

    Good grief, I dread to think what has happened if you are having to resort to this. This is just terrible if your being put in this position.
    What is wrong with people?
    As you know, someone tried to cause bother with me a couple of years ago and it makes you feel sick. I hope, whoever it is feels ashamed of themselves.
    We'll still be here when you're ready chuck.

  13. Hi Patricia

    Finally get around to blog visiting and find so much sad news over your last few posts.

    Poor Maureen. How sad.

    Then sad in another way is the person who has caused harm through your lovely blog. What a shame - but hopefully it won't curb your fantastic creative talent.

    Take care and have a flabby summer.

    Love, hugs and thanks for all the inspiration you give us

  23. Patricia, I am so sorry to hear what has happened to you. I can't understand how anyone can be so spiteful and cruel to use your blog to hurt others. Whoever it is they must be an extremely cold and callous type of individual to get pleasure from hurting and upsetting others, and I hope they get their just rewards. I know Hazel has decided to take a break too. Blog land has lost two beautiful blogs today and we are all so sad to see you leave us for a while.
    Your flowers today are truly fabulous as always.

  24. Hi Patricia

    Just popped in and saw your beautiful roses, and then read your blog. I think it is sad that people get pleasure out of hurting other people on such a friendly and innocent blog, they should learn to to get a bloody life of their own and stop being so evil. I don't know what went on but for a strong lady like you to back off, it must have been bad. I'm really sorry Patricia and will miss your blog BIG TIME. You take care and don't let the buggers get to you.

    Big Hugs

  25. Evening Patricia what wonderful roses you make gorgeous flower's.
    You will be sadly missed you and Hazel have been very supportive when I first started blogging and I now feel as though we are special friends. I didn't know anything had happened there are some nasty people out there we are all crafters and here for the same and we are all friendly but now I know there's someone out there to be nasty. You have my email Patricia if you ever want to chat.
    I will miss you my friend xxx

    What a shame you have been upset in this way, I have just had a quick look at your beautiful flowers and have discovered what a beautiful site I have been missing! I fully understand your reasons and support your decision but how sad that in the land of beautiful craft people can be so unpleasant.
    Much love to you my blog friend.

  30. Oh Patricia,
    I'm so very sorry! I've had such trouble logging on today. I just can't really believe what is happening. You are one of the nicest , kindest people I know. I never thought I'd ever know anyone who would be bullied on a blog! To think that someone gets pleasure out of upsetting others is outwith my understanding. I'm so very sorry, Patricia and I do hope this person will be exposed or he/ she will just continue to behave in this way.
    Sending you love and hugs.

Will really miss you and am glad that your decision is not a permanent one as you are right, this horrible person would have won then. It must be so distressing on top of Maureen's very sad loss. I hope having a lovely summer with your family will help to restore you peace of mind. All your blog friends will be waiting for you whenever you are ready to return. Big hugs.x

  37. Hi Patricia,
    oh my word I am so sorry to hear this, and I can't understand how anybody could do this to you, as you are such a lovely lady, and a very generous one too.
    As you say no one knows who is looking at our blogs.
    You will be greatly missed, but please don't let it be for long, as they would have triumphed, in there horridness .

    I too can't believe that those die cuts make such beautiful roses.
    You have always been my roses queen, as they always look so superbly created.

    Love and big hugs from my house to yours, and extra big hug for you.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  39. Such a really sad day Patricia when one mindless and poisonous person can cause so much hurt and get pleasure from it, as I have said to Hazel, what goes around comes around, and I hope it does with a double dose. You and Hazel are a truly lovely people with very kind hearts, you are so right to have a break and not allow this nasty twisted person win. Have a wonderful summer, enjoy the good things in life I shall miss popping in, so looking forward to your return.
    Thank you so much for yet another wonderful tutorial your kindness in sharing knows no bounds.

  41. Hi Patricia, just had to comment to say how sorry I am that you have decided to take a break from your blog. I enjoy your style and the way you include your family and friends in your blog conversations. Some people are so sad that they have to cause so much upset, but unfortunately there are quite a lot like them. My daughter has recently had a similar experience, but stay strong girl! you have an awful lot of good friends and support out there in blog land. Will miss your talent, regards, Linda.

    Ur wee box an flowers look stunning as always.
    Sorry to hear about the hassle ur getting from ur blog.
    I had a similar situation in the workplace however I hadn't even said the stuff that was doin the rounds with the gossips I was so angry I exploded it's settled down now but it's made me very wary of certain people and of even talking to my colleagues at all.
    It's a sad day to day the least!!! See u soon chick chin up xx

  46. Patricia, so sorry to hear about the unpleasantness - whatever it is. And yes, we can't be too careful, as who knows what is gleaned from our posts. I would never share pictures of children, etc. Good luck with your hiatus, I will miss seeing your gorgeous projects. As you will guess, I'm loving your roses! None of my efforts _ever_ come even close. Enjoy whatever it is that you're off to do, and we'll be here when you can rejoin Blogland. Big hugs & TFS

  47. Blumin eck Patricia what on earth is going on?? First let me comment on your flowers as we all know that have blogs we just want to share and enjoy each others creations and take inspiration and give encouragement to what other bloggers create - so as always I just love your amazing flowers (but then you know I am your number one fan for your blooms) and can't believe that the die cut flowers turn out to be such a stunning end product.
    Now back to the other business I am at a loss as to why and how people perform these despicable acts but then if you have such a vindictive mind you will know the ways and means around being able to perform such acts - at the end of the day you have to feel sorry for them as they must be such sad/lonely characters who are probably jealous of the talent you have and your popularity but like you say when it includes either family or friends then that is a different ball game - shame on them!!! We will all be waiting for when you are ready to return and please e-mail me if you want to spill out your wrath - I have very broad shoulders xx take care and enjoy your time out xx GailT xx
