Morning everyone and it sure is good to be back in blogland again... even though I always hit a down period once the shows are over... you get so much of a buzz when you are working at them but hey ho... just need to wait on the next one I guess...
Thank you to everyone who stopped by the stand to say hi to Kath & myself... many a good old laugh has been had this weekend... and a few embarrassing moments also... a few jokes were shared over Kath's slippers & my tights... sorry folks... but they are too embarrassing to share... I've also been told this weekend that I'm very different in real life to what I portray on my blog... hmmm... wonder if I'm hiding myself too much.... no it's normally just that I'm dashing about from pillar to post and back again... For those who have not met me yet... I am not a really stuffy, straight faced person at all... I am infact a bit of a nutcase, mad as a hatter, never shut up and love nothing more than a good old laugh... trust me... just ask anyone who has met me and they will confirm they have seen the evidence... (tights included)...
Well today I have to batter on with work again... my house is a complete dump as my dear hubby thinks that because he washes some dishes, feeds the animals and hoovers up once that he's taken care of the house for me... what a laugh eh!!!! Came home to a pile of dirty dishes yesterday, washing basket is overflowing, kitchen worktops need a scrubbing with bleach and a good old fashioned gutting is more or less required. In addition to that I have a pile of samples to make and workshops to organise for my visit to Dundee on Thursday. If you happen to live close to Dundee then please pop along and see me... in the morning I will be doing workshops and attending the local craft group (The Crafty Dodgers) then after lunch, I will be found at Burns & Harris, 97 - 99 Commercial Street, Dundee. Please do pop along if you get the chance as it is going to be a fun filled day.
Oh well... guess I best sign off now and get my bum in motion else I'll just want to sit around all day doing nothing... but before I go here's the rules for entry into the candy giveaway...
Didn't manage to get much shopping done at the SECC (working & playing too hard)... but did manage to grab a few things for a candy giveaway as pictured above....
To enter the candy giveaway all you have to do is leave a comment on this posting... giveaway will run for a week and I will announce the winner next Tuesday.
Good luck to all.

Hi Lorraine, welcome back to blogland. It was great to meet you and Kath yesterday. So far I have wasted the entire morning. I have looked at my new stuff, taken off packaging, put some past and wondered where to hide...oops I mean put the rest. Lucky I opted for a day off today. But I really need to get some cards made for Wednesday for a WRI competition. Wouldn't be so bad but one card is needed for a co-operative entry and I'm sure the other girls will have done their knitting, cake decorating etc. And I really meant to give them a choice of card in case I made one and it didn't fit the colour scheme or perhaps no-one liked it lol!
Thanks for the chance to win candy.

Well I have just seen Kath's slipper and I say if they make you comfy go for them but then there is the issue of your tights, perhaps we had better not go there lol. Sounds like you had a blast though. Don't work too hard on the cleaning unless of course hubby is watching and can learn a few tricks.
