Well folks would you believe it's not even 1am and I'm sleepy!!! Not like me eh lol.
There's a very good reason for it though, you see we had a mini extravaganza day in the shop meaning we had 6 demonstrators on between 10am and 4pm. When the day began I had every intention of taking pictures throughout the day but eh.. that plan went out the window after the first half hour as there's simply wasn't time!
The first picture was taken about 10 mins after the doors opened and let me tell you this was when it was quiet.. you wouldn't believe what it was like by 11am. Thankfully most of the companies close by are closed on a Saturday as in addition to our car park being full our customers were parked on 3 additional streets within the industrial estate lol.
Now we always say that we have the best customers and here is a few pics to prove it. In the second picture is our boss lady Gaynor who is actually being given a vegetable (can't remember the name) which a customer had grown herself and brought in as a gift. Then we have the all important CAKES!!!!!!! There is never a demo day goes by that someone doesn't give us something yummy to keep our energy levels up and this time around it was Angela with a big box of delicious homemade cupcakes. It was 5pm before we even had a chance to dive in to them but they were well worth the wait.
Needless to say I've kinda just sat back with my feet up tonight and done sod all but chill and I'm actually looking forward to going to bed and with the turn back of the clocks I even get to have an extra hour in bed.. yippee doodle dandy.
So with that said I'm going to sign off and get my pj's on ready for the land of nod.
Toodles for now

Evening all.. just a quick post tonight. What a busy week we've had in the shop. Gone are the days when it used to be quiet because everyone was at the big craft event at the SECC.. now they go there for an hour or two followed by a trip to us where a lot of them start the visit by helping themselves to a wee cup of tea or coffee and a biccie lol.
Now the winter nights are closing in and it's already dark by the time I get home meaning I can't get any decent pictures so here is another wee peek at the latest project on my desk. Thankfully all can be revealed tomorrow as I've got a day off meaning I can use the sunlight.. Yay..
Don't you just LOVE this adorable old guy.. Defo one you'd want to cuddle.
Right folks I'm off to sort a few things before sitting back to chill out.. hospital tomorrow for some bloods and stuff so want to be well rested.

Just a quick post for the moment being folks.. still a few pearls to add but decided to snap a shot whilst there was at least some sunshine outside as the forecast isn't looking too good for the next few days.
Will pop back later and add the finer details to the post like paper range etc but right now I'm off to scrub a few toilets, mop floors etc oh yeah.. and I've got Mrs Wishy Washy laundry on the go at the moment too. You really can't beat a good old Sunday scrubbing the house can ye! Lol

Just a quick post tonight folks as near on 2 am and got work in the morning.
Had a fab Monday & Tuesday with one of my dear friends whom I love dearly. Done some shopping and got the good old housework and washing done too.
Today.. well what can I say about it.. hhmmm... BUSY!!! Think we all lost track of exactly what deliveries arrived as they were coming so quick at one point lol. We had 3 pallets.. yes pallets!!! In addition to the rest of the deliveries. The ones I can remember off hand are Crafters Companion, Crafts Too, Spellbinders, Creative Expressions, Groves, Crafts UK & Stick It.. I know I've forgotten a few but it gives you an idea anyway lol. Needless to say us 3 girls were glad when 5.30pm arrived so we could get home and have a seat.
So.. Once dinner, dishes and yet another load of washing (no idea where it all comes from) and animals were all done I finally got to do a little crafting and finish off my project. Sadly yet again the light had gone so it's another sneaky peek. If it's light enough tomoz night I'll get a proper pic but barring that will defo get it done on Friday when I'm off. I'm so loving these papers and picked up a few wee final bits in the shop today so think I'm happy with it now.
Right I've gone on enough so time to sign off for the night and get some beauty sleep.

Well folks it's 3am Monday morning and here I am sitting typing a post as I've just realised it's been a week since my last week!
As for the post title.. well I'm not just meaning that I've been relaxing but am also referring to the fact it's currently 34° outside.. bbrrrr.
So what's been happening the last week that I've been so quiet? Not too much really. One of my work colleagues had a few days off work so I pulled an extra couple of shifts meaning I was working Tues thru Saturday. Popped to a friends on Thursday night as it was her birthday and Brianna was over for a visit on Friday night. Today has been chill time.. nice wee lay in complete with kitty snuggles, relaxing shower, watched the Russian Grand Prix and had a little crafty play on the project I started last week. Sadly it's too late to take pics now so I've tried my best on a sneaky peek pic using my night mode.
Got doctor this afternoon as took last of my meds tonight so need a prescription refill and one of my oldest dearest friends is coming for a visit.. Guess I best get some housework done in the morning when I wake as it's currently a bombsite due to fact I've done bog all this week lol.
Oh well time to sign off so will say toodle pip for now and be back later with some better pics.

What a dreich old morning it is outside today but thankfully there's the odd ray of sun managing to penetrate those grey and white cloud formations and with any luck the breezy winds that have been howling all night may just blow them away for a wee hour or two. There was me thinking the news was reporting the prospect of an Indian summer too.. eh me think not mate! Keeps up at this rate and the thermals will be on before Halloween even arrives lol.
Now today is the perfect day for being tucked up indoors surrounded by papers, scissors and glue but alas I have promised my wee mum a trip out so looks like I'm gonna have to wrap up warm and make sure we go somewhere that we can stay indoors, do a little shopping and have a bite to eat.
Thankfully these gorgeous bits will be awaiting my return and I can push on with my current project for Jones Crafts. I'm one of those who likes to do a rough mock layout before sticking anything down as it gives me the basic idea of the larger elements and allows me to decide where my smaller often half hidden bits and bobs will go. Now if I can only get the frame finished before I pop out with mum then I can get moving along with the actual construction tonight.
Please do check back over the coming days and weeks as I will be focusing mainly on KaiserCraft so there should be plenty to inspire you on their new ranges.
Toodles for now and happy crafting
