Baby Rose

Just a quick note to say baby Rose arrived at 10:30 Saturday night, here is a picture of her and one with mum and big brother.

Mum and I are so excited, two weeks today and we'll be there! Dad gets to stay here and cat sit, he'll get to see them when they come here for Christmas.

Will have to think of a lovely Baby's 1st Christmas card...

Bye for now

There just arent enough hours in a day

Since the table top sales have gone into winter mode ie every weekend I don't seem to have enough time. Since my last post I have made my christmas cakes, and am 'feeding' them regularly - lucky them!

I've been making as many cards as I possibly can, the first is the poppy, I can't remember where I got the image from, coloured with my ever increasing copics.

The second and third are Kenny K images, I love these so much, they are just so fun to do.

Now from card making download, I just fell in love with the sweety shop:

I also got a lovely poinsettia card from there:

And last but not least I got some Christmas Forever Friends transfers and today I've been putting them onto some mugs:

My sister is expecting her second baby any time now, she was due last Friday so we're all on tenterhooks every time the phone rings. That also means mum and I are going to the UK in two weeks and as Vicky doesn't have any craft shops near her I've been shopping on the internet and yesterday I bought myself the Forever Friends CD rom, it should have been £49.99 and I got it for £29.99, what a bargain, how chuffed am I?
Don't know if I'm more excited about that or getting another nephew or niece?!

Hopefully will be back soon with some baby news, fingers crossed it won't be much longer!

Bye for now

Another quick post

I've just got a spare minute to show you a couple of photos of my table at the table top sale, I didn't have much room to take the pictures as the table accross from us was selling clothes for about 40p so you couldn't move for locals!

I've also signed myself up for step aerobics, so I have to leave in about 10 minutes. What have I let myself in for??

Right when I get back I'm making christmas cakes, I got all the fruit measured out and soaked in booze over night so they should be good lol!

Right, best get off now and get ready - wich me luck!

Where did that week go?

Hi, it only seems like yesterday that I was saying I was getting ready for the table top last weekend and here it is again this weekend! It went really well, I sold all but 1 piece of cake and quite a few cards and had orders for 7 more so thats where the week went!

I had had an order from an elderly lady who was short of cash so wanted 1 card to incorporate a gentlemans birthday, his wife's birthday AND their wedding anniversary,

As you can see I did it flowers but in blue so to try and please both parties.

Inside the simple anniversary image and I put verses behind each front panel.

Today I've been busy getting ready for the table top so just have a couple of food piccis to show you.

Carrot Cake


Just got coffee & walnut, victoria sponge, turkish delight muffins, fudge muffins and lemon curd slices to do tomorrow.

Bye for now, thanks for stopping by
