Post of shame!

I thought I'd share with you all the reason why I have not had many creations of late...

...yep, that is the state of my desk! I am ashamed to say! (Sorry about the lighting in the pic but I'm sure you get the idea) I thought this post might scare me into realising how bad it is and to make me tidy it up! I've just ran out of time with being poorly, then being in London and last weekend we were away in Edinburgh (which was lovely, and great to spend some time with my other half). That was pretty much October for me - oh and going to work full time too! Hehe.

We are off to a wedding on Saturday, my other half is DJ-ing for the happy couple so that is their wedding present from us but I wanted to take a little something for them on the day. So after a trip to Ikea and much debating (I was literally playing with vases, candles and pot-pouri in the store) I settled on a fairly plain vase and candle. But, I decorated the candle, put it in the vase and wrapped it all in cellophane and decorated. As my desk is full of rubbish I took to the living room floor - more tidying up for me! I'm annoyed at myself for not taking a close up of the candle before I wrapped it all in cellophane, ah well! Hopefully they will like it.

Here is the card we're giving to them too (I made this for the CRY Sale but it had no takers, luckily it's saved me this weekend)

That's all from me today - I think I've rambled on for long enough!

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave, they make me smile. Until next time...

A little bit of eye candy from me today :D

I made this card for my sister as she has herself a new job, starting in the new year. I went to stop with her in London at the weekend and we had a lovely time. Was great to spend some time with her and to explore a little more of London. Love ya sis!

Just a quick post from me today as I have lots to get on with and I'm off to visit my friend later to celebrate her birthday. Happy Birthday Sara!

Look what I have!

(Sorry the photo is a big dodgy!)

Woooo! Yep, I own my first stamp set from Papertrey Ink! A friend of mine went on holiday to America and he very kindly bought me this back - and a couple of sets for my Mum that she had for her birthday. I haven't got round to inking it up yet, but I almost don't want to open up the packaging - it looks so good!

Along with the stamp set I ordered their tote bag too - I think they are left from the CHA show they did, but I didn't mind paying $2 I thought it was quite cute!

On another exciting note my other friend who was pregnant has finally had her baby - a little girl called Lola Grace Murphy! She was born on 12/10/09 at 8.13pm and weighed 8lb. She looks so cute in the photo her mummy sent me. Can't wait to meet her. Will have to get her baby announcements out now.

That's all from me, I'm off out for a meal with my girlies tonight!

Until next time.....

Second time lucky?!

Well I'm hoping that this post will work - blogger seems to be doing funny things to photo's when I'm typing my post so I can only hope this works when I click 'publish post'!!

This card is one I made last weekend for a colleague's birthday. I made a batch of 3 cards in quick succession using mainly chocolate chip card stock, paper and ribbon. I'll share the other 2 cards in the next few days.

Unfortunately Matt has passed his bugs onto me and I have got a yacky head cold. Typically as I had plans to craft this weekend - and we have our first craft group meeting tomorrow. But I'll be there in some shape or form!

I'm off to rest back up on the sofa - although Matt has taken control of the TV and he is watching a programme from his childhood called the Interceptor - it's a bit random!

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave - they make me smile! Until next time....

I am here...

...just wanted to make a little post to say I'm still here! I tried to post on Sunday but blogger was not happy and it wouldn't play. I'm a bit busy this week and have a poorly man at home to look after so I will be back soon with some new creations to show you!

Also, sending love to Katrina and Adrian after their scary road trip on Sunday night. Glad you are both safe.

Until next time....
