Mementoes In Time


Been away but back for Christmas at least

Posted on November 24, 2016 at 9:10 AM Comments comments (2)

Some may have noticed that the site has not been updated so much this year. There has been a reason for that. Unfortunately, my dear, wonderful Mum passed away earlier in the year after a very difficult period of around three years, during which she deteriorated greatly. I have not felt inspired to do much since then as I am sure many would understand.


Most, if not all of my craft projects were made ...

Love Words Papers Fixed

Posted on February 8, 2016 at 11:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Just to say that one of the older downloads on the Member pages was appearing with some of the words missing. This was the Love Words collection which we posted a year or so ago. Hopefully this has been resolved now but let me know if there are any problems, as we fix things as we go!

Member Pages Problem Sorted

Posted on February 5, 2016 at 9:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Just to say that there was a glitch on the Member pages 'Other Templates' page. The full range of files was missing but it has now been sorted out and you should find all the free download files that are meant to be there. The page has been renamed as 'Other Member Templates'. Aplolgies for any confusion but things stuff up occasionally!

Unfortunately, personal events and circumstances as well as illness have made continuing this blog very difficult over the last year or two.

Sad News

Posted on December 20, 2015 at 10:25 PM Comments comments (1)

Unfortunately I have been unable to update the site over the last few days as my dear Mum had a very large heart attack on Friday last week. She is currently in hospital, very poorly, as she already had suffered a massive stroke a couple of years ago which had left her unable to communicate or move.


Obviously we don't know whether she will pull through but we are praying hard for her. Those who have r...

Time Out for Something Different - Igloo Cake

Posted on December 4, 2015 at 1:00 AM Comments comments (4)

No cards today, as things are getting busier towards Christmas. I haven't been sitting around doing nothing though, as the picture above shows. Tasked with a cake for a competition at my child's school, I managed to come up with this. I am not going...

Back at last

Posted on November 11, 2015 at 9:35 AM Comments comments (3)

Apologies for the long break in writing on the blog. This year has been a challenging one yet again and it has been difficult to get down to posting projects with the everyday issues of life getting in the way. Lots of projects have been made but not posted but I realised that if I was going to get any Christmas projects done, I would have to get going on them and post them up to the blog. So if like me, you have not yet got going on your Christmas projects, dro...

Flower Fancies Template

Posted on May 11, 2015 at 2:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Big apologies for the delay with updating the blog but life as ever has overtaken events. With one child bouncing off a trampoline and injuring a foot, to another going through important exams, let alone all kinds of other issues with other close family members, I am feeling stretched in all directions at the moment and completely run off my feet!

I have managed to do a few demo projects featuring the new ...

Site Updates and Other Stuff

Posted on May 3, 2015 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (0)

We have been very busy spring cleaning the site recently so here are a few updates.

  • The blog posts have now all been categorised according to two year blocks, which should make them a bit easier to find. Don't forget you can use the search tool to look for keywords, if you are looking for anything in particular.

  • Quite a few of the links...

Message Board is back

Posted on April 28, 2015 at 12:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Those of you who have visited this site over the years, will have noticed how the Members Forum/Message Board feature has come and gone at various times. As my dear hubby says 'it's been up and down like a t**t's knickers'. I can only apologise for his crudeness but he has a point! :)


The reason for this is that it takes a lot of time and effort to keep checki...

Bear With Us!

Posted on April 28, 2015 at 10:30 AM Comments comments (0)

We are reclassifying the blog posts, so they are in a bit of a mess at the moment. Bear with us, as it will take some time but will make more sense to be able to look past posts up by years. We should have finished this by the end of next week.

Thank You!

Posted on April 28, 2015 at 8:00 AM Comments comments (2)

I wanted to say thank you in a very public way to a very, very special member of this site. She might be very cross when she sees this but I really hope not. She has a good sense of humour, so I'm sure I will get away with it! :D


The other day I received a mystery package and opened it to find a most beautiful handmade journal. To say I was blown away would...

Going Backwards In Time!

Posted on February 9, 2015 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Here at Mementoes In Time, we are clearly going backwards in time! All the photos posted over the last week or so seem to be labelled as 2014. As much as I would like to blame some other supernatural forces at work on this site, unfortunately, this is 100% user error, so big apologies for that. I'm sure most of you reading this, would have worked it out anyway but instead of going back to change them all, I'm just coming clean on the blog!

Spectrum Aqua Pens - First Review

Posted on February 6, 2015 at 10:40 AM Comments comments (2)

I mentioned that my Spectrum Aqua pens had arrived the other day. I was going to wait until I had time to do a really detailed run-down of them but I was too excited to wait and decided to rip open the packs and play with them right away. Here are my first thoughts using these pens.

Welcome to new members!

Posted on February 6, 2015 at 4:05 AM Comments comments (6)

A big welcome to all the new members we have had joining up to the site over the last few months. We used to welcome each one of you with an individual message but unfortunately, this takes up so much time, that this had to be suspended for the time being! Rather than send a standard email to everyone, I would like to welcome you all here!
