Why do computers only last a year? Electrical items don't seem to last like they used to!

In the old days as my Nan would say "things were made to last." My Nan had her washing machine for 20 years. My Mum's spin dryer still works and it is over 30 years old. Hoovers lasted years. Everything lasted! Now we live in a throw away society, which is very bad for the environment. Not to mention it is not helping people get their little businesses off the ground, we can't afford to keep replacing computers and everything else every year, we are getting totally ripped off! 

I have gone through two laptops and two computers in ten years. One lap top only lasted a year, broke before the warranty ran out. The latest computer broke after a year. This stupid computer did not do what we wanted it to do even though we spoke to the people before buying it. We told them what we needed to use it for re animation and they said yes it would work and low and behold it did not. And do you think they would sort it out, no chance. I don't know about you but I am sick of being ripped off! It is all very well having to take out warranties, but it is never ending on everything you buy.

Last year I went through 3 hoovers. We have gone through 3 camcorders, all broke down.

I do have to praise Samsung as our fridge was freezing over and we were ending up with frozen milk. An engineer came out and fixed it for free. Now that's customer service! I am proud to stick my customised fridge magnet on my Samsung Fridge!


Let me know your stories are you fed up and sick of being ripped off too?

Google please find a sponsor for Butterfly Lullaby work at home project for Mum's (Mom's)

I am looking for sponsorship so I can offer Mum's (Mom's) a chance to earn a living from home so they can be with their children. An online store with no upfront fees for them to sell arts, crafts and downloads.



Selling crafts on the Internet is not easy! I had a meeting with the Welsh Police this year and was amazed at the losses to small business owners because of the obvious threats on the net. That is why we need big companies to sponsor the little people and get this country back on it's feet. Children need their Mum's and if Mum's (Mom's) want to be at home with their children they should have this opportunity. I would like an online shop open to all Mum's wanting to sell arts and crafts and downloads. I know fees have to be paid to keep the website going, but would like the fees to come from actually selling the item rather than listing them. That way Mum's (Mom's) with no money, that are struggling have a chance to get on their feet. As Butterfly Lullaby is not just a fairytale book and songs, but a brand I would also like an online Butterfly Lullaby store related to all my brand ideas. And if Mum's wish to make the Butterfly Lullaby dolls, fairy doors and tea sets etc they can submit their designs to me for consideration for the Butterfly Lullaby store.

Butterfly Lullaby art show with clever little artist:



Just the name Butterfly Lullaby has had a huge following. The name Butterfly Lullaby never existed on the Google search before I purchased the Butterfly Lullaby website etc. But I am the proud owner and founder of Butterfly Lullaby and know that what I have created is something very magical indeed, which I wish to share with other Mum's (Mom's.)

Leave me a message if you love arts and crafts and are interested in my ideas. Are you a struggling Mum (Mom) who needs to earn a living from home to be with your child? Don't struggle alone, join me and together we can make a happy life for our children.

Cindy Woo our little baby dwarf bunny rabbit needs a rabbit run

Our little baby dwarf rabbit needs a rabbit run. Has anyone got one in the Swansea area, which we could borrow for the summer? Or one you are throwing out. Or any ideas on how to make a cheap rabbit one a women can put together? Remember I don't have a man that can so will have to do it myself, so it needs to be easy and affordable.

Here is some cute footage of our little baby dwarf bunny rabbit when we got her last year. I made the little rabbit lead, which she has now grown out of. She is currently wearing an elastic rabbit lead I made which is now getting too tight for her.



Oh boy, got to go my little angel is not happy as I promised to paddle with her in the pool.

Leave me a comment or get in touch via my Butterfly Lullaby website. Thanks Sharon

Sharon J. Bainbridge founder of Butterfly Lullaby the fairytale www.butterflylullaby.co.uk

Here is a picture of me (Sharon J. Bainbridge) at my Butterfly Lullaby book launch back in March 2007. The Mark Jermin Stage School Students performed beautifully to the Butterfly Lullaby song with a fairy dance. Danielle the Queen Butterfly also performed to our song Dance like a butterfly. It was perfect! The only thing I had wished for was that my partner, singer Jakson Lee, could have sang the songs live. Sadly the Dylan Thomas Centre was not set up for that, but I thank them for their support it was truly a magical event, a book launch with a difference that stood out from the crowd and something I am sure the Queen would have loved to have seen.


When I wrote the Butterfly Lullaby story I never wanted it as a book, because I am a visual person. I imagined it as a huge Butterfly Lullaby Fairytale film. And also see Butterfly Lullaby in the West End with all the original Butterfly Lullaby songs. Here is a video clip of my Butterfly Lullaby book launch:



I look at my Butterfly Lullaby book launch video and think, did I really make all those costumes myself and hand paint them. Write the story and nag my partner Jakson Lee to create all the songs and make all the fairytale images for the story. The lovely thing about the Butterfly Lullaby fairy images is that it is possible for your child to have a picture created just like the one in the book. They become the character.

I have to giggle now, as I have had an amazing amount of bad luck and that is putting it lightly. My life story would be a block buster hit, as it is far from your average author, and I still cannot believe some of the things that have happened. But my life is what has made me such a strong character who cares about other people. I have no regrets, because bad things make you realise that things could be a lot worse and there is always someone worse off than yourself. And you have to make changes in your life and not depend on God or your partner to do it for you. I am the lucky one because I see others around me that do not have their health and it makes me appreciate the free things in life.

I am going to try for a grant to see if my Butterfly Lullaby website can be used to help Mum's (Mom's) earn a living from home with art and crafts with no upfront fee. It will need the best IT people. If Google are reading this and interested please get in touch. I find it so damn annoying having to keep paying fees all the time for a short time on craft sites. It would be nice to have a site where you pay nothing until your item sells. Especially as I know full well what it is like to struggle financially it is no joke. Little people need all the help they can get. And big shops need to help little craft people, it is like getting a meeting with Brad Pit, impossible! Talking about Brad pit I will have to show you the picture I created of me on the back of his motorbike. All in fun, Angelina is very lucky, but then she is beautiful, which helps! I know my man needs nagging, but the one thing that attracted me to him was his amazing musical gift and voice. The Enchanted Manor loved the video I created with the Enchanted Manor song that they are putting it on their website. How proud am I! I wrote the lyrics to the song Enchanted Manor and my partner Jakson Lee created the beautiful melody, music and vocals.



Well I had best get dressed, although I do love my PJ's.

Feel free to leave me a comment about the craft site idea. Let me know your experiences of selling your work on line. Lets work together as a team to make life a happier place for everyone.

Baby frog with wings - stay too long in the Butterfly Lullaby garden & you will sprout wings like our fairies

We left our paddling pool out for a whole year and frogs laid their eggs in it. We have had two batches of tadpoles. In this video below you can see the tadpoles growing into little baby frogs.



When the frogs stay too long in the Butterfly Lullaby garden they start to sprout wings like our fairies and start talking.

The truth about women having to be the bread winner

In this video below shows a women having to work long hours to keep her family afloat. I personally feel really sorry for her. There is nothing wrong with her wanting to look after her child, we bring children into this world and most Mum's (Mom's) want to be with their children and bring them up. I wonder how much time her husband gets to relax compared to her?

 

I know for a fact if my partner was at home. Nothing would get done! He would be on his online game all day. My little angel would be waiting an hour for a drink etc because he has to finish his stupid little game first! And do you notice how annoyed they get if they cannot finish the game because it is on line. Is this really healthy? She would not get to do art and things because he just does not have the attention spam to do it. On line games are fine if you are single, but with a family they wreck your life! The sad thing is he in my opinion is very talented when it comes to singing and creating songs. He should be teaching her to play the piano, instead of that silly game. What a waste of talent! The main thing is my child adores him because he is her Dad so he must be doing something right.

I would like to see Job Centres offering Mum's (Mom's) real work from home opportunities, which have been tried and tested. The cost of living is high so in most cases both parents have to work. In my case I will not relax until I am the bread winner as my partner may be very talented, but because I have to nag him to do anything I just wonder why I bother so I am looking for people that deserve my promotion and will work hard.

Today I have a meeting with the Photography Studio who will be promoting my work. So if I am in a position to offer any Mum's (Mom's) work using Photoshop from home in the future, I will. Subscribe to me on You Tube and here on my blog to keep up to date on my progress. And don't forget I do have an online shop, which I am updating re all the Mum's (Mom's) that make crafts. I am looking for a way to try and help people that need it, because little people need a helping hand.

Butterfly Fairy Princess fairy dress from the Butterfly Lullaby fairy story book



This Princess Butterfly Fairy Dress was one of the first fairy costumes I created. My Mother in law convinced me to have a go at making one, after showing her my little Bo Peep costume I made out of a quilt cover. First came the butterfly fairy dress, then came the Butterfly Lullaby fairy story and the rest is history. I look back and think, did I really do all that. To make all the costumes for the characters, write the story, create all the Photoshop fairy images, come up with song ideas to go with the scenes in the story (which I had to nag for!) is something I am very proud of. Butterfly Lullaby has quite a following now, and I feel proud to be the founder and own the Butterfly Lullaby Trademark.

It is quite something to see my Butterfly Lullaby books being sold all over the world for big money new and used. Even though they were not paid for as Borders went under. Hopefully the sellers will have a heart and make a donation to Cystic Fibrosis as I am still trying to get little Jodie to Disney. I have made progress with creating a story purely for Cystic Fibrosis called Sunset Bunny the Easter Fairy which is of course based on Jodie's love of colours and bunny rabbits.

If you like my fairy costumes. I do have one for sale. It is the very, very special one I created for Sunset Bunny the Easter Fairy for little Jodie. But this costume comes at a big price. It has to get her and her family to Disney.  I am sure there is someone out there with more money than they need that would like to buy their little girl an OOAK costume from a unique fairy book. It would be an investment as it was worn by the original character in the story. The Butterfly Lullaby book launch is on You Tube.

Pink fairy dress Flamingo Dragonfly Fairy Costume Handmade OOAK - fit for a Princess

Here is one of my beautiful pink fairy dresses (fit for a princess.) I created this fairy dress for my fairy book Butterfly Lullaby - Flamingo Dragonfly fairy. OOAK handmade and hand painted (no patterns.) A local photography shop will be showing this dress in their window and offering my fairy portrait service and selling my books. Well if my books are being sold for £32 new on the Internet I must have done something right. The highest price I have seen the book advertised for is £60 used this year (and US$ 110.) Considering they must have got them from Borders when they went under (not paid for) they are making a nice little profit. I think they should make a little donation to Cystic Fibrosis, what do you think? My partner is singing the song Butterfly Lullaby to this Video (singer Jakson Lee.) What a waste of talent! If only he spent more time on his music career rather than his stupid on line game! Honestly I feel like Bob the Builder, combined with a nagging Mother. The little Princess Dream we all had when we were children is shattered with reality!



If you are having man problems. Don't let them get away with it. Sadly some men do not have a clue. They have to be told what to do as otherwise they will just get away with being damn right lazy. Pick up your socks, get the washing in, wash up. Boot camp is needed. Tell me your story. I wonder if we could get someone to hypnotise them to be hard workers?

Fairy garden with fairy doors and windows and fairy furniture & miniature tea set


This is my beautiful fairy garden. When I put the fairy door and windows on my old apple tree I was amazed at how tiny fairy mushrooms soon appeared. The fairies must have liked the fairy garden! I made the fairy furniture out of clothes pegs. Here you can see the fairy chairs, table and bench. And I have even made a fairy fence and of course no fairy door would be perfect without it's own little fairy ladder. The fairy miniature tea set was just made out of dough. Even the little coloured mushrooms are made out of dough. And here you can see my very own little Butterfly Lullaby fairies from my Butterfly Lullaby fairy book. I made their little costumes too.

A Mother's love - I wrote this song for my lovely Mum who I adore and admire

I wrote the lyrics to A Mother's Love for my wonderful Mum (Mom.) My Mum (Mom) is not like other Mum's (Mom's) because she suffers from a horrible illness, which is down to bad things that have happened through her life. She always managed to pull herself together and be there for me when I could not breathe with Asthma as a child. A truly kind and loving person that deserves health and happiness.

You can hear my Mother Song dedicated to my Mum (Mom) here in this video called A Mother's Love. Lyrics and photography by me, Sharon J. Bainbridge / Music and vocals Jakson Lee. You can see my Victorian style images, some fairy portraits, butterflies and bumble bee photos in this You Tube Video.


If you are lucky enough to have a Mother who is fit and well. Who is well enough to give you her time and look after your children for you. Don't take her for granted! Respect her, treat her with kindness. You are lucky to have your Mum (Mom) close by, and healthy.

Bad times make you appreciate the good. Thank you Mum for believing in me and for never trying to get me to give up. Your faith in me keeps me going.

I hope one day I will be able to wisk my wonderful Mum (Mom) off to Switzerland the place she always dreamed of.

If you like Jakson Lee's voice he is on Twitter and You Tube. Remember Jakson Lee without the 'c' in Jakson.
