Right peeps.. dinner eaten, dishes done, kitchen cleaned... Let the fun begin!!!
Here's a wee taster of what I'm starting on tonight. Going to enjoy this one.
Just a quickie folks.. sorry I can't share any more than a snippet but these are a couple of samples I've been making for my last ever wedding order. Fantastic bride to work with as she's so clear and precise with her descriptions and I do love her classic colour combo. This may be my last but it will be a memorable one.
Today I've been a domestic goddess again.. miracles will never cease.. that's two weeks running now. Lol. House cleaned, washing basket empty and weekly ironing done and dusted! Time for dinner now me thinks, after which I'll get my work gear ready for the morning before I snuggle down for some evening crafting. Lots and lots to do with so little time to do it all in. Valium may be required by the time Christmas day arrives. Lol.
Righty ho I'm off now as just had a notification from facebook so need to go answer my friend before turning the cooker on for tea. Have a good night all.
Oh my, oh my... Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner and I have no cards made or presents bought!
Have been busy this weekend designing samples for my last ever wedding order. I simply do not have the time anymore and next year I need to concentrate more on the design side of crafting. This year has disappeared so fast but I'm looking forward to the new year and what lies ahead.. especially my new position on the Jones Crafts design team as I'll be playing with such scrumptious goodies.
Anyway, I'm settling myself down now to make a start on the crimbo cards so its going to be a late night for little old me.
Keep an eye out over the coming week for some little December projects as an advance preview of what's in store from Jones Crafts too.
Right I'm off... Catch you all tomorrow.
Evening all.. boy has it been a long day and I'm only just getting time to settle down so not much time to get anything done but I'm going to do a quick prep of my MDF pieces so they're at least ready to work with as soon as I get time. Glad to say I've also started to get a plan in my head for the wing canvas so pretty happy about that.
Well.. after a good old day in the shop followed by a slow drive home on the motorway, soon as I got in off came the coat and in to the kitchen I went. Slow cooked my beef last night so I immediately started chopping my onion, crushing my garlic and measuring out my spices so we could tuck in to some delicious beef curry for dinner accompanied by chappatti's warmed through direct on the flame from the stove. Oh it sure did fill my tummy and warm my cockles. Nothing better than a good plate of warm grub on a cold winters eve. Sadly this was followed by the mundane chores I had to do before catching up on my emails etc and now its finally ME TIME!
Last shift of the week tomorrow and keeping fingers crossed that the forecast snow stays at bay till I reach home tomorrow night then it can do as it pleases. I'm expecting another lush delivery over the next few days so got lots of happy crafting ahead.
Shocking I know but I haven't even started on Christmas yet! No presents, no cards made, decision still to be made on this year's menu etc etc. Beginning to think I'm a little crimbo'd out as I've been doing samples since summer time. Lol.
Well.. my MDF won't prep itself so going to sign off and hopefully get a relatively early night as its been around 2am the last few mornings when I've hit the sack.. nighty night all and happy crafting.
Another late/early post so short & brief as I need to hit the hay and get some sleep.
Not too much to report today.. didn't get home from work till about 6.20pm then organised dinner, quick clean up, tended animals (including the old hubby lol) then put a pot of beef on to slow cook as I'm making a curry tomorrow night. Yum.
Eventually sat down to chill and after I'd dealt with my emails etc I tidied up the scarves and added some fringes. Decided to leave them with that slightly scruffy look as opposed to straightening them all off.
Also got a few wee goodies at work today. Already got a pretty good idea of what I'm doing with the hearts, the wings will be components in a few canvases soon as I get time to do them and the mould was simply a must have. Lol.
Not exactly an exciting day but all the same it was a good day.
Bed time now as the alarm goes off in less than 6 hours so need some happy zzzzzzz's.
Love 'n' hugs
Ready to bring the day to an end but thought I'd do a quick post before I retire for the night.
Well I've been a domestic goddess today doing all my housework, washing, ironing and paying bills and actually quite enjoyed it for a change! Think it may be due to a slightly more relaxed schedule this week. Lol.
Got excited this morning when Mr Postie arrived with my first DT kit from Jones Crafts and yes.. it was a box full of yummyness. Can't wait to get started now.
Over the weekend I've also managed to knit 2 scarves for my friends little boy & girl. Just need to get the fringes on one then I can deliver.. just in nice time too judging by this week's weather forecast!
Finally tonight we had a lovely visit from Gordon & Brianna who brought the most delicious cheesecake. They're heading off to Lapland tomorrow for a winter wonderland honeymoon. Don't think she'll ever grow up. Lol.
Well I guess its time to wrap things up, turn off the lights and get some beauty sleep as its just after 1.30am and the nasty old alarm is set for 7.15.. need to get an early night tomorrow to make up. Anyway.. toodles pip, nighty night and catch you all again tomorrow.
P.s. sorry for the crap early morning pics. Lol.
Well folks I can now break the news that I'm part of the brand new DT for Jones Crafts Nottingham which means I'm going to be creating with lots of yummy stash from companies such as Graphic 45. As if that's not exciting enough we have an amazing group of ladies.. including names I know you will have heard of such as the ubber talented Hels Sheridan so its defo going to be very exciting times ahead.
Full list of design team members and links to their blogs will be uploaded on a post later tonight and hhmmm me thinks I better have a major overhaul of the old blog sooner rather than later as its been pretty neglected over the last year but now's the time to get that rectified so watch this space.
Toodles for now
