This week has been busy for me. Lots of the usual animal care/housework/shopping/sorting out the Farmhouse/office work etc. However, I have also been creating in my craft room. I seem to have lots of birthday cards to do at the moment, plus swaps/challenges/Easter.
My new little Sizzix Texture Boutique has worked very well, and I am now officially collecting the smaller embossing folders again. Bought myself 2 already on Ebay and, if I go to HobbyCrafts at the NEC tomorrow, you will see me rummaging around looking for more bargains. Most people seem to have moved onto the larger format folders for the Grand Caliber/Ebosser etc, so I am hoping that the smaller folders will now be on sale.
This is what I have embossed already - just waiting to be used in projects.
Regarding HobbyCrafts. I selected 3 winners of tickets yesterday. Anne, Debs and Shazronnie will all be enjoying a fab day out at the show. Thank you for ICHF for the chance to give away tickets. I plan to have more to give away for the show in November.
I had another crafty delivery this week. This time from QVC, who are my favourite craft tv channel at the moment, due to their speedy delivery and the fact that they have Anna Griffin on! I was lucky enough to get one of the Paper Weaving kits last week (everything was selling out so quick, she wasn't even getting time to properly show each product!). I am desperate to open it up and have a play - but was good and sorted out some officework yesterday, as well as going for a short run with the dogs in the afternoon (will do a separate post about my health and my continued attempt to keep active). Busy day again today - Rich is hoping to get away from the farm for a few hours, so we will be off to look at tiling/kitchens/bathrooms/wooden flooring AGAIN - as the builder wants to tile the main bathroom in 3 weeks time! I am rushing to get this finished, as we have a meeting with him at 8 am to discuss radiators and the airing cupboard (my life just gets more glamorous!). Our living room is literally covered in kitchen/bathroom/tiling brochures and house/lifestyle magazines. I will definitely be glad when this part of our lives is over and we can settle down into some sort of routine. For those who do not know what I am rattling on about. We are renovating our old farmhouse - and the project can be seen on its own blog - Lower Tancredston
Enough for now. Happy WOYWW to all those that I do not manage to visit. I am still continuing to struggle with leaving comments, so it may appear that I am not visiting you - but in fact I managed to visit nearly all the blogs on the list last week!
