What a week!

What a week indeed! Work has kind of taken over this week - we had to move offices and boy was it hard work! Way harder than I thought it would be - both physically and mentally. I'm just glad we had fantastic removal men to help us out for 2 days! So, here is my new desk - I now share an office with 4 ladies, I used to share with 1 other lady who only worked part-time so it will seem odd to me being back in an office that will always have somebody else in it other than me! (Neat freak is already viewable - I've only been in the new office for 2 days!)

So needless to say not much crafting has taken place this week - I've come home each night from work exhausted. I managed to craft for an hour or so earlier, but I have lost my energy again! I've decided to make a little something for all of my work colleagues who have moved to my new building with me - 6 (lovely) ladies in total. I've made a start on 1 gift and will make the rest tomorrow hopefully.

They are little post-it note holders and a little bag of sweeties. The scalloped circle on the sweets will have a little message from me on them. This set is for my manager, Sally.

Post-it note holder recipe:
Card stock and paper - SU!
Ribbon - From my stash, probably hobbycraft
Other - 1 3/8" circle and scallop circle punches

Sweet bag recipe:
Clear Bag - SU!
Peg - From a £1 store or somewhere like that!
Paper (to cover peg) - SU!
Button - Doodlebug (linen thread - SU!)

Well I'm off for an afternoon nap now, then over to my friends for an xfactor gathering!! Hopefully next week will be a bit more settled at work so I can crack on with the 15 baby announcements and all of the other ideas I have in my head!

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave. Until next time.....

  1. These items are fab Gemma. Love the post it note holder and little peg! I know the feeling, work has been stressful for me lately too! We moved wards, now I have to move again twice!!! Crafting has been taking my mind off it when I'm not there! We will have to get together again soon.
