Memory Keepers Remember…

Written by Boo on . Posted in Uncategorized


Hello my friends,

I found todays post a lot harder to write then I would ever have expected. It’s not like I haven’t done many Memorial Day posts over the years so it came as a bit of a shock to find myself getting quite emotional as I scanned Google for an appropriate image to start my post. There were lots of Memorial Day Sale images as well as many photos with flags, eagles, red,white and blue and family gatherings etc but I suddenly found myself on a page where most of the photos showed grief stricken loved ones hugging tombstones. The imagery was heart-breaking.  It was a strong reminder to me what this day is really all about and while I am not American myself, I was no less affected by the message as any of my American friends.

As a Mum of two soldiers in the British Army I spent every day in fear that this could become my own reality. I was one of the lucky ones. My boys came home safe. As I looked at those photos on Google I thanked God for their safe return and for all those boys and girls throughout the ages who did not make it home. For them and their families left behind to try and carry on, because of you and your ultimate sacrifice we are able to enjoy the freedom we have.

Let me never ever forget what you (and your loved ones) gave for our freedom. Thank you.

For our Memory Keepers out there let todays sale at BooLand give you the perfect opportunity to create lasting beautiful memory keepsakes for you and your loved ones to cherish throughout the ages.

Boo’s News

Well folks, this is it…… that time when all of Elly’s hard work and your kind help will decide if she is to get to that awesome collage she has her heart set on. It’s a big ask, even with all the extra tuition and help she’s had so I’m keeping my fingers, toes and just about everything else crossed for her while she sits her GCSE exams over the next few weeks.

She had her School Leavers day last week and enjoyed a day filled with fun, frolics and lots of dress up so I’m hopeful those memories will help get her through the stressful moments coming up.


While I am busy helping Elly revise for those final exams we will slow down a tad in BooLand but that just gives us a chance to show off more of our awesome Blossoms Gorgeous creations and share a goodie or two with you (yes, I do have one or two planned throughout next week so keep an eye open ok)

Meanwhile, we wish you and your family and blessed and peaceful Memorial Weekend.

Good morning dear friends.

Well, after the long dark winter it finally feels like I’m emerging into the light again. The strange thing is that this year I really thought I was doing well not feeling too down with the grey dreary winter days. It is only now, as I feel the fresh spring breeze and the sunlight on my face that I realise yup, I actually did kinda hibernate again lol.

I don’t know if there is anything to this SADS thing or even if its real. I only know that the older I get the more I withdraw in the winter and I can’t explain why. Have you ever noticed this happening to you? If you have, what have you done about it, if anything? I’m open to suggestions folks. The last thing I want is to go into hibernation from my lovely Booland fans just because it turned a bit cold. KWIM?

Lets just say it feels soooooo good to be out in the light again and feeling creative.

Here’s my latest offering for you, an brand new OSB and inspired by scenes like the one above. Don’t you just love that spring carpet of color….

Happy Mothers Day to all my lovely friends out there who are celebrating today. I hope you get to spend lots of quality time with your loved ones making special memories that will last a lifetime and more.

It’s been another crazy busy week in BooLand, both real and virtual worlds. Trying to get used to the new system at the Studio has me running around in circles, I don’t mind admitting, lol but fortunately Toiny shared a good few tips in the weekly NL to help us navigate a little easier so in case you missed them, I’m sharing them here as well….


Welcome to the new Studio

Now shop by collection

One of my favorite new ways to shop is our Collections section. Inspired by my other favorite hobby, quilting (and fabric collections). I love, love, love looking throughcollections just to see what catches my eye.

  • I like shopping by Designer; A-Manda Creations has some wonderful collections.
  • I love browsing by letter. “S” especially has some lovely collections.
    Note: You can always clear your filters by using the Reset button at the bottom of filters.

Check-out some of our new release collections & maybe you can see why I love this feature so much:
