Rock a Bye Baby

This is another project you've seen before but I think it's so cute that you need to see it again!! Another of my scrummy papers which is just perfect for the cradle as it's double sided so the inside of the cradle looks as nice as the outside. I found this dear wee bunny to sleep tight in the bed. This one is for a young friend's baby who is due any day (she already knows it's a boy) but I have another sheet of blue and a sheet of pink in the same design to make up for samples. Well that's my lot for today. It's VERY hot and humid here today so I think it will be salad for tea. I have a very late night tonight as I will watch a UK craft program on my laptop from 11pm until 1am and then again from 4am until 5am. I may be a bit grumpy tomorrow!!! but I have to watch as it's one of my favourite crafting ladies, Barbara Gray of Clarity Stamps. It seems to have taken forever to come around this month!! Maybe I should take a Nana Nap after tea do you think? Have a good week.

Tilda and Tea Lights

Hello Everyone and I hope you have had a good weekend. Where did the last week go to??? I was shocked to see it is a week since I last posted something. I have had a great week working on class samples. I bought LOTS of scrummy papers on Tuesday to make my samples with so you will be seeing them all in due course. The first one is here on this Tilda Tea Light card. I know you have seen one before but they look so different done in different colours. The candles are vanilla flavour!! I used Distress Inks to paint Tilda and I am starting to like my results now. Practise makes perfect as my Mum used to tell me. This class is going to be an option to make in time for Mother's Day but with the red heart cookies it could be for Valentine's Day tomorrow too. I hope your Valentine is nice to you. Mine is nice to me every day!! See you soon with another post. Thanks for looking.

Christmas Ornament in a Box

Hello Everyone and I hope you have all enjoyed your weekend. When I was still a-working I always hated Sunday evening. Another weekend whizzed by and I hadn't gotten as much done as I would have liked and another long week stretching ahead. I usually did the ironing on a Sunday evening so everyone was stocked up with freshly washed and ironed clothes for the week. Now I don't have to worry but I do still have a basket of ironing to do but it has been far too hot and muggy to tackle it these last few days. That's my excuse anyway!!! LOL Well it's never too early to start on Christmas projects you know. I told you the other day that I had my classes planned for the year - well this is one of them. I think I have it down for September but one of my NY resolutions was to be more organised hence I have this done now and I am halfway through the instructions too!! It iwas in a list of ideas I got with my Scor Pal board which Santa brought for me. It quite took my fancy. A nice gift to give and the ornament slides out of it's slot to be hung on the Christmas Tree. Right I'm off to have my evening drink of hot chocolate with a dash of Baileys in it. My daily treat made for me every evening my my DH. Have a good week and thanks for looking. PS Hope you like the new look Blog. It took me ALL day to do and at one point I thought I had lost it all!!! Scary!

Ferrero Rocher

Good Morning Everyone. Well life is back to normal (if a little dull) in our household after a wonderful week with my Two Favourite Little People. They returned home on Saturday and to school yesterday and after a few days sorting out my craft space I returned to work last night. I have also been very organised and planned my classes for the WHOLE year so I am feeling very pleased with myself. This decorated box, which holds Ferrero Rocher choccies, is a class project for March. It was a delight to make (after I had my measurements sorted). How could I not enjoy working with such lovely flowers and gorgeous colours. Well my tunmmy is rumbling so I am away to get some lunch ready. I am walking at 1.30pm with my friend Di so I probably won't get back to my desk until after tea. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you liked what you saw.
