The Ultimate Blog Party

I just stumbled across the Ultimate Blog Party.  There are so many awesome prizes to win.  My favourite I think is international prize #16 which is a blog template made by premades for a purpose.  Lena does some fab digital work and I have used her templates for some time on this blog.



so if you are finding me from the blog party and are even slightly interested here is a little bit about me.

My name is Kerry and I live in Yorkshire, England.  I have a husband and 4 kids - 1 girl who just turned 18 and 3 boys who are 14, 11 and 6.  My youngest two have both been diagnosed on the autistic spectrum so I have quite an interest in strategies and coping with the demands that poses. 

We also have 2 dogs.  Charlie is a 3 year old black labrador patterdale terrier cross and Daisy is an almost 2 year old yellow labrador.  Not forgetting Oliver the 8 year old cat.

We are currently a few days into a loft conversion to make more bedroom space for our family so a lot of my posts are probably going to be showing the transformation.  If you want to see the progress why not click the follow button on the side.

My blog is titled Dogs, Socks and Scrapbooks because of my dogs, my dwindling passion for knitting socks (yes it was a big passion when I named by blog but not so much anymore) and scrapbooks which is my other crafting love.

I hope to see you again.

Stopping by from UBP.

A long time ago (almost 20 years now) I lived in Yorkshire for a few years, near Harrogate. My memories include rain, stone walls, and cows :)

But also very pretty.
