Been busy today, decided to have another crack at the crafters companion cute companions cards, they are lovely but I find them quite time consuming as I'm a slow cutter outter, just need to find some odd sized envelopes now. Also is a Dalek card that I was asked to make for John's partner at work, he specifally asked for something with a Dalek on as Neil is Dr Who mad, I'm hoping he likes the one I've made, I put glossy accents on to juzz it up a bit, I made it into an easel card for a change, sorry the pics aren't very good but hey, I'm crap at taking photo's lol. Eeee if I didn't HAVE to go to work I could play all day, my dream would be to work in a crafty environment. I'm hoping to free up another day at work by adding my 3 1/2 stupid shift onto friday, It'll mean working all day friday, but an extra day off. I plan to try and volunteer somewhere to try and get my foot in the door as I really don't fancy doing the job I do for the next 19 years till I retire!

scarf, mum, and other titbits

Upside down blogging again, lol, I always forget which order to do things, never mind. I have since coloured my hair with an ash blonde after seeing a tad yellow on the piccy. Ilove the ash it's much softer, I also discovered I can wear eyeliner now in navy blue, again less harsh, and a smidge of gold eyeshadow. I took a tip from twiggy after noticing on a picture how blue her eyes looked by wearing those colours. Isn't the christmas card gorgeous, it has been made with the 12 days of christmas stamps by clarity, Lynne has done a fabulous job.

Sorry for being awol, last time I tried to blog, I lost it all and didn't get round to re doing it, so here's a mish mash of latest happenings. I went to Doncater with my friend and had a long but enjoyable day, I bumped into the lovely Kirsty wiseman who I make cards for as a design team member, but the last 2 lots I've made, I've forgot to photograph doh!, I just love a good craft fair so much so that I'm off to The CREATIVE STITCH AND CRAFTS SHOW in Manchester at the beginning of september, can't wait, for 2 reasons, I just love september, it's the onset of autumn, my favourite time of year and it's also the craft show! I've snook a piccy in of my mum with simba my dog. I also recieved a gorgeous card on a swap forum that I'm in, its a christmas card swap, isn't it gorgeous. There's also a piccy of me and Kirsty at Doncaster.

I've also started to knit a scarf, it's sooooooooooo easy it's untrue, all you do is weave 8 stitches onto a needle from the woven wool, then continue to knit 8 stitches, it forms ruffles in 3 varigrated colours, it's sooooooo additive and only cost a fiver for the yarn, might get another bundle at Scc.
