Woo Hoo!!

Today is my last day at work for 10 whole days, don't get me wrong I like my job but 10 yummy days off all to myself, woo hoo! I have lovely things planned all week.

Friday I will write all my Christmas cards and the house will be cleaned thoroughly for Christmas. I will then scramble up into my attic and retrieve all my Christmas Decorations, then the CD's will go on and the tree will go up with one little gap left (read on to find out why).
Saturday I'm going to a full day of workshops and Christmas dinner at the Village Hotel and hosted by Craftwork Cards, I know this is going to be a fabulous day, the workshops are always lots of fun so this will be FUN with dinner and rumour has it that Santa is popping along.
Sunday I'm going to London, this is a tradition that was started by myself and my BFF we always go at this time of year we always stay overnight and go see a show, then call into Harrods for a Christmas Tree ornament, for the gap on my tree. So we will be doing this

and this

This time we are going for two nights and there are seven of us, so we will be doing even more. I always take my camera so there will be lots of piccies.

Wednesday I will sort out my pictures and I usually make a little book to record the trip, I want to make a couple this year as pressies. I hope to make a good start on these on Wednesday. I will also post all of the cards.

Thursday I intend to take a trip to Ikea for a few more storage bits to 'tidy' my craft room then rest and relax.

Friday I have appointments at the beauticians and the hairdressers for a good tidy up.

The next two days are going to be spent wrapping presents and relaxing ready for my return to work, knowing that I am all prepared for Christmas.

I can't wait!

Vine Tutorial

On Monday morning I took part in the UKScrappers blog hop, who would have predicted the response to the flowers I had made for the layout. In particular the rose vine. I was flabbergasted, but promised I would let everybody know how I had done it. If anybody does make one of these vines please could you credit me and if posted in a blog I would appreciate a link back to me.
I was absolutely inspired by the gorgeous Prima vines, I have purchased many but due to the cost they remain in my stash, I am too frightened to use them because they are not cheap. They fall into the category of  'waiting for a special projrect'. This made me challenge myself to see if i could make something similar.

Lost Contact

I've had no telephone or broadband since I last posted, isn't it amazing how we become so used to something then when it's taken away we can't live without it. I had made a few pages and cards to post but then no broadband. AAAGH! Anyway a lovely man came out today and it's all fixed, that nasty jack frost had caused the wires to break, fortunately it was outside or it would have cost me money. I spent my time wisely, I purged and organised. I've only had my craft room for 10 months and OMG what a mess. I have so much rubbish that I bought thinking it was a great bargain and haven't used,like cheap glitter glue coming out of my ears. I have every colour of Stickles that I love and always use, so why did I waste money on cheap stuff, anyway no more its gone. (Well actually its laying at the top of the stairs waiting to be boxed up and given away.) I've also outed a pile of punches, I don't need them now that I have my beloved Cricut, why oh why did …

Birthday Cards for Men

Cards for men really are quite difficult, so when I find a colour combination that isn't just blue and can work for men I use it. One of my favourite combinations is a bright blue, bright red and white. I think its modern and bright. Over the last weekend I made a few cards with this colour scheme, those of you who visit me regularly will also know I like simple. We have worked our way through all the previous cards I made for the boys at work so another batch was called for beginning with this one.
