Yes, I know, life has taken over, or should I say Christmas has taken over……. despite all my brilliant resolutions of making so many Christmas Cards each month so I would be prepared at Christmas, it just didn’t happen and so here I am, over a week into Christmas and I need to make Christmas Cards…… so unfortunately my blog has taken second place….. I do have loads to share, not so much new stuff as that is also on hold until Christmas is sorted….. but yesterday I went to see my little Grandson in his Nativity Play, he looked so cute, and a bit shocked as he wondered why I was calling him….. he was an angel….
Although he may look like an angel, he isn’t always…… lol, but he was very good in his Nativity Play…..
I have also added a new Paper Digital Kit to my shop, there are five papers in the set and they are a Damask Design, and they would be excellent for Christmas as they are in Christmassy Colours…..
You can find them in my shop here…
Hope to see you all back again tomorrow, I have some photographs to share with you….
See you then xx
When I have to think up original blog post titles again…….
I thought after posting my post yesterday that maybe you thought my little boy always looked muddy like that, so I am posting a photo today of him with his brother and dad, and he is definitely looking decidedly smarter….. lol
He is the smallest one and his hair was a lot shorter then too….. it is also shorter now…. lol
So today is day 29, nearly nearly there…. am busy putting all the freebies together to make up a kit at the moment….. todays freebie is a patterned paper…. there is something a bit special tomorrow as it is the last day so check back then, and don’t forget I will be removing all free links 48 hours after the last post….
After being told last Friday that my tumble dryer man wouldn’t be around to fix it until this Friday, there was a change of heart and he came round today, he has been sent from Devon (which is around 200 miles at least from here) for the week to cover for the man who is off sick…. and he has fixed everything, and whilst he was looking, just an offhand comment I made, made him look at my condenser part of the dryer which he said is warped and he will get a new one sent out to me, so really I have had nearly a whole new tumble dryer today apart from some of the outer casing….. can’t be bad, and it is working fine as I had washing lined up ready to dry….. ha ha
Don’t forget to check back tomorrow…. see you all then xx
I woke up quite early this morning and tossed and turned a bit and realised there was no way I was going back to sleep so I got up and DH followed very quickly after, so we decided we would go to our local Beefeater (which isn’t really local, about 15 miles away) and have their yummy eat as much as you like breakfast…. it costs £7.99 an adult and all 3 children eat for free….. so we tucked in to cereal, crumpets, toast, bacon, sausages, eggs, mushrooms, baked beans, yoghurt, muffins and probably more and are now still stuffed to the eyeballs…. but it was a bargain…. lol, we have some cream cakes for supper if we are hungry…. (did I ever tell you about my healthy diet?… ha ha).
We then strolled around a few shops, bought some Glow Plugs for DHs car which he is outside trying to fix at the moment, we looked in the pet shop and everyone wanted to bring a new pet home, the children wanted guinea pigs, rabbits and fish, I wanted the degus and a bearded dragon, but we resisted and came home with nothing…. we already have 3 dogs, 4 cats, a crab and a tortoise… but we need to rehome one of our dogs….. she often gets quite vicious to the other dogs and has even gone for DH once so I am very worried about the kids, because of this the dogs spend most of the day outside, (they have a massive shed for a kennel with warm blankets etc) but it really isn’t fair, but we are not sure whether we should really rehome the dog incase she is vicious to someone else or what to do…. big dilemma…
Hoping to go to cinema later, but not looking good as DH is having real problems fitting his glow plugs and we need to leave in an hour to get to the showing, we were going to see Dream House, I remember seeing a film back in the 70s with the same name but I don’t think they are alike, the film in the 70s was a B film, back when they showed 2 films at a showing….
Anyway, enough waffling, here is todays freebie…
Another patterned paper for you. I have activated another 3 BLACKFRIDAY codes for my shop for the first 3 people who go along and purchase something…. the voucher is for $2 and there are lots of kits for under $2 in my shop at the moment as I also have a 60% off sale through until Monday….. take a look and pick yourself up something for nothing if you are quick….
Have a great day, see you all tomorrow…. xx
Hi everyone, normal service has resumed today, at least I think so…. managed to go shopping on my own, only wanted to buy some yummy bits for our church meeting tonight as our Pastors are away at Pastor’s Conference and they sometimes bring the yummy stuff, so just wanted to be organised…. and as usual I always spend way to much but never mind, at least no one will go hungry or without….. ha ha.
My little boy wants a netbook for Christmas, he has decided now for sure and we saw one in Sainsburys about 2 weeks ago, it was such a bargain that I told DH to buy it, but we didn’t as son couldn’t make up his mind, now the problem arises that this particular one was £129, about the same as the bike that my other son wants so was within budget, now they are out of stock there as they were selling them off and the next cheapest I can find is £189 which is way out of budget, so what to do now….. guess I will have to keep searching, maybe I will need to revisit the Sainsbury’s tomorrow to check it out, just incase….
And here we are at day 23, today we have another Patterned Paper…..
Hope you like it, the pattern isn’t too large so it should have quite a few uses…..
Tonight as I mentioned earlier is Church night, and is also the last week of the book we were doing The Purpose Driven Life….. I think everyone has enjoyed it, we intend to hand out forms for feedback and we will be starting a new book next week….. should be interesting….
Have a great day everyone, the sun came out here for a little while, so that was really nice…. take care xxx
And that is about it, I have spent 5 hours tidying my boys bedroom, me, hubby and the 2 boys and it has still taken us 5 hours, have lots of stuff to give to the grandsons (who knows where daughter is going to put it) but now it is tidy, shiny, sparkly…. but for how long nobody knows….
Anyway, they are off to sleep in a museum tonight…. hope it isn’t like Night in the Museum…. lol.
Todays freebie is the plain paper for the kit, I think I gave the cream one much earlier in the giveaway, so today are the other 4 colours….
See you all tomorrow with another freebie giveaway…. have a great Saturday, take care xx
Oooooh I am late today, that is because I have been cooking since noon today and it is now 4.30pm, but I have cooked cherry cupcakes with cherry icing, glitter and flowers on the top and a chocolate cupcake with the most yummy chocolate topping with little silver stars, not sure if I will ever be able to get rid of them from my worktop, they seem to have gotten everywhere…. so I will post a photograph tomorrow of them, will photograph them before I go out (hopefully I will remember) as they are for our group at church tonight… wasn’t going to make any but I got a new cupcake book called Cupcakes with Lola and some of them are so absolutely lush, I love the sound of the baileys one too, might just have to treat myself for christmas….. mwah ha ha ha.
So today I have another freebie for you, the ninth freebie, and I have a few already sorted out to post in the next couple of days too, trying to be prepared as I still have to write my sermon for Sunday….. so here is today’s owl paper….
Tomorrow there will be more elements so keep an eye out for it.
I went to Hobbycraft this morning and bought some Christmas presents for the boys and the silver stars and a flower shape cutter which I used on the cupcakes, only reason I made them was to use my new purchases….. ha ha, how sad am I…
Hope to be back earlier tomorrow… cya then
Good evening, bit late today but I have been busy on my computer since 8am this morning and only took a quick break for lunch, was trying really hard to finish my kit and woohoooooo…. I did it, but it will take more time than I have this evening to load it into my shop, it is taking hours just to upload my papers to the FTP and Thursday evenings we go out to a Pub Quiz…. it hasn’t been on for about a month now, but it is restarting this week and I don’t want to miss it. We aren’t very good as it is really old music (some old groups we have never even heard of) but luckily we team up with a guy who is awesome, he has been running the quiz recently with his BIL so we were left to quiz on our own, but we did win a couple of times so we were quite proud of ourselves….. Am a bit out of practise now so not sure how well we will do tonight.
Anyway, waffling again….. I know you are dying to see my kit, it is a bit different to my normal kits, it is a Mega Kit and I am going to sell it as either a Mega Kit where you buy all six kits together at a rather hefty discount, otherwise you can buy each kit separately if you only want certain parts of it. So here is a preview of the mega kit…..
So what do you think? I will hopefully get it uploaded to my shop tomorrow night and once it is approved it will go live sometime over the weekend….
I will be back tomorrow with a layout from another kit in my shop, one especially to embarrass my daughter who looked at it at the weekend…. ha ha. Wish me luck for the quiz tonight, I will let you know how we got on tomorrow. Have a fun evening all, take care..
