Love my job!

You never know what happens when you spend a day at Craft World..  today we had the delightful Carol Smillie pop in for a visit..  and yes she really is as nice in real life as she appears on the TV (even if she does make me look like a Glaswegian milk bottle) lol

Tuesday Teaser

G'day all.. thought I'd do a quick teaser post before heading off to work. 

There's nothing much new to report as it's been quite an uneventful weekend.  The highlight of it being my best friend coming to visit yesterday who unfortunately had to chat away whilst I was in the middle of a marathon ironing session..  5 hours it took.. yes that's right 5!!!  I've been prioritising since Mum had her op and the clean clothes pile always fell to the bottom but thankfully the basket is empty again. 

Progress report on Mum is good and she's been building herself up again day by day so fingers crossed she's back to normal soon. 

Downfall of the weekend was visiting Mum on Sunday and suddenly getting the most awful stomach pains, followed by a horrible feeling of nausea.  I tried not to say anything but she cottoned on something was wrong when the colour drained from me.  Absolutely no idea what it was but it lingered all day yesterday and have to say it's still with me a little today. 

Anyway work calls so off to finish getting ready and see what delightful goodies we have arriving in store today.

Oh no..

Do I spy something related to the C word...  4 months to go and the countdown has begun.. 

Saturday Sunshine..

Well folks I guess the sun is rather unexpected for some of us this weekend seeing as it's a bank holiday which usually means rain, rain and more rain.

I'm spending the weekend making samples for next Saturday and Sundays Extravaganza demo in the shop, as well as trying to get mum back behind the wheel of the car after her operation and as a reward I'm cooking Sunday dinner lol.

I've noticed also that the boss has been busy as just received word that we are offering free P&P till midnight on Monday.  Lots of good prices on cutting dies etc but I also know there are some cool advent calenders hiding on the site perfect for paper piecing or a bit of mixed media. 

Anyway must go and get back to work.  Have a good weekend all.

Delicate card for a delicate girl

Just a quickie before I head off to work.

My friends daughter turned 11 last weekend so I made her this card as she's such a sweet delicate little girl.  Well.. when a child throws their arms around your waist and says 'I love it, I love it, I love it' you know you've done a good job lol. 

Right must dash as no idea what kind of delights are due to be delivered to the shop today..  must remember to post some pics later. 

Toodles for now Xxx

Saturday saw the beautiful Nicola marry her soul mate Gary..  absolutely fantastic day spent with very good friends.   I used to push Nicola in her pram when she was born so was a privilege to be present as her parents gave her away to become a wife. 

Wishing Gary & Nicola a lifetime of love joy and happiness as they begin their married life together.
