OFF WE GO AGAIN ....

Well first of all I just want to say a great BIG THANK YOU to everyone who managed to squeeze (and I mean SQUEEZE) on to our stand at Alley Pally. It was a great show and I couldn't have done it without Polly And Jayne, sorry about your feet girls !!!
Were off again tomorrow to Warwickshire for the Artisan show, this time it'll be me and Rick wearing the pinnies !!!
So if you're up that way pop on over and say HI !!!
Whilst I love doing the shows, I can't wait to get the shop back to normal, it feels so bare.
Back soon....carry on creating

IN THE DOG HOUSE....

No not me.... That's the name of a great product I've just used.



Afraid to say it's got absolutely nothing to do with crafting, unless you count the yummy ribbon tied round it's neck - obviously to be used on a card or tag once finished with!!
Seriously though even if you have or haven't got a pet we all like our houses to smell nice, and this little gem does just the job. Oh gosh I sound like I'm doing an ad, but honestly I'm not, it's just like in the crafting world, when I find a product I like, I want to share!!
I've just washed all my floors with it and whilst I'm flagged out on the settee (after all that work) I'm just taking in the smell. I've just used orange....mmmmm
Anyhoo's the girl who does all this yummy stuff along with lots of things for your dog is Charlie and you can get her at inthedoghouse@live.co.uk
Off to do the rest of the housework now.... Oh how I love Mondays !!!
Have a great day everyone

STEPPING OUTSIDE THE BOX

how often do you buy a set of stamps and just use them as you see them ?



Here's the Butterfly Kisses set from Sugar and Spice and whilst it has many uses the super duper Chilli Barb saw a tree so I made it into a simple crimbo card.



Love it !!!

HERE'S WHAT I'VE BEEN WORKING ON

Over the last couple of days I've been working on this little gem ....in between running a shop, website and home !!!


I decided to use the metal photo tree to make an advent tree.
Each little pocket is made from an envelope (yes we sell them in the shop) and I've put tags inside to put a photo or christmas message on and then just embellished with buttons, glitter and ribbon ... Ta da!!!!
