Today…

I have been a busy little bee! Up at 8.30 am on my day off! Spent an hour this morning reading my favourite blogs over marmite on toast & a cup of tea & then got a mad urge to clean the kitchen! So busy i got with some hot water, tea tree oil & vinegar (old school) & showed Mr J how to clean a microwave the easy way! I caught up with The Vampire Diaries, recorded Murder She Wrote (I’m watching that in a minute!) & uploaded my latest photographs… 1. cute ornaments I thrifted whilst in Norfolk, 2. me in my Pineapple dress (taking pictures of yourself is awkward!), 3. pretty napkins that I also got in Norfolk. 4. is a onesie that I’ve done a very childlike design on… (shouldv’e ironed it before I took this pic!) my plan is to add some embroidery to it too so it’s a Work In Progress, 5. is another WIP, I’m just tidying it up but I like it alot & I think there will be more of these to come! Final pic is a finished necklace (yay!) available here… Off to relax now! xox

(Not Quite Really) Sunday Sweetness

So this weeks Sunday Sweetness is 24 hrs late (again!) but that’s because I’ve been in sunny Norfolk over the weekend visiting my mum & last night spent a couple of hours helping her get her blog set up instead of working on my own! It was a lovely couple of days with the sun shining (although it was cold!), my mums puppies running around creating mayhem, a shopping trip, a DIY attempt, & our favourite pasttime, CRAFTING!!!! Mum is a huge papercrafter, she makes beautiful cards & ATC’s as well as creating beautiful Punchcraft embroideries & being a talented florist. She has her own craft room (I’m not jealous, no, no, no!) & it is full to the brim with papers, paints, colours, ribbons, brads, glitter, glue, cardstock, sequins… it’s like Crafting Heaven! We also sat & watched some favourite TV: NCIS (her) & Poirot (me!)… it was a good couple of days…. I have pictures to put up of my thrifted finds (Enid Blyton book ‘The Enchanted Forest’, Pineapple dress, Dr Seuss t-shirt, floristry ring, Russian Dolls, yay!) the flower embroidery I did whilst I was there (that mum has kept) & some felt flowers that I’ve made so stay tuned!
