Monday List .....

Started today with an eight point list of things to do ... So far so good.

1. Have got.petrol in the car. (it runs much easier with it..than without)
2. Have left spare wheel in for repair (so ... better not get puncture)
3. Have done yet more food shopping (more milk .. think I will get a cow.)
4. Have tidied my bedroom - including under the bed (did not find any money ..)
5. Have registered for new course of Mosaics (yay best thing that happened today)
6. Have sorted out one large basket of clothes (and put on yet more washing...)

so.... thats not too bad. There are still a couple of hours left. But think I will only get to do one more thing...

Paperplaying ....

Mandy - Crafty Angel set this weeks challenge over on Paperplay challanges.

'PINK & GREEN, BUTTONS AND BLOSSOMS'

So .... I had decided to alter a notebook for a birthday pressent for Liadan's school pal..

Of course it looks - as they always do - a lot nicer in real life. But I am very pleased with how it turned out.

Cake & Card ...

My Brother in Law - Philip - has finally caught up with the rest of us and turned 40 at the weekend.

He is a very busy person so I decided that his card should be busy. So it was great fun to make, and seemed to nearly make itself.




The cake is of a Camera ...and sort of a film strip ..only sort of as I couldn't find my mini square cutter! So its just an impression of a film strip.






Still the cake went down well, and turned out yummy. Poor Des at the party the waitress only gave him a small corner slice!! His face was a picture. ( I let him have my slice ...)

How we spent our winter break....

Mainly we made stuff...

I knitted these wrist warmers - they just go around your wrists and have a thumb. So your hands are warmed up but your fingers are completely free ...I dont like wearing gloves ..but dont like cold hands either..






Thanks to Annamarie ...we made snowmen balls !!
