Not much news just a few photo's of some card toppers, I've been busy with my jewellery website as I'm now low stock wise and I hadn't noticed- ooops so beads are on orders and I'm trying to make as fast as I can, hope you all have a great weekend.

I am pleased to announce that I've lost a bit of weight 10lb in four weeks wooohooooo! so to celebrate instead of eating anything bad for me I mad some cards :O) I must admit I haven't done anything drastic just cut out crisps and cheap chocolate and it's worked wonders so far, here are the cards I came up with

Hubby Home

I'm a happy bunny Hubby got home safe and well on Saturday, he was due back on Friday but as usual like in the RAF never runs to plan, never mind he's back safe and well. The kids were so please to see him, i never tell them he's coming back in case he gets delayed as there would be disappointment & bad moods & I'm the one left to deal with it. I must admit it's a whole lot better when he's away now that we share with Mum & Dad, i have adults to talk to and the kids have two other's to bug!! I just wish my Dad would lighten up and get on better with Hubby it really gets me down as my Dad's mood change is disturbing it's like a light being switched off when Hubby walks thought the door, but enough of that horrid stuff.
I've been topper making,scrapping & card making a bit more lately seen as things with the shop are not moving, funny though it hasn't stopped my buying nice decorative bits though :O) I got a lovely PINK(of course) leatherette pen tidy reduced to £8 bargain & even better I got some recipe book stands PINK again that I'm going to use for showing scrap albums for 75p each so I just had to buy 3. I've got my bookcase's all picked out and even have to colours sorted, I'm all sorted but just need the council to be on my side for a change and give me my planning permission & building warrant, pretty pleeeease!!

I'm soooo excited for Jutta she's half way through her ninth week and she's beaten her busiest yet- woooohooooo, she had so little confidence so I hope this will make he believe in herself as she is great at what she does. I'm actually being your guinea pig tomorrow she's having a hair colour technician come and give her some training, it should be great fun and I'm looking forward to getting something different.
Here are few pic's of what i've been up too over the past few weeks-

Fed up wi this rain!

The story goes on...

...the shop has taken another twist it looks like we underestimated the building warrant process, it will take longer than the planning permission so I'm hoping for a Christmas opening date now :O( not too happy about that but there is nothing I can do about it.
On an up side I have registered the business name with the U.K registration company so I am now the proud owner of the name "Cullen Crafts" I've designed my logo but that I'm keeping to myself for the moment

How Bad Am I????

I have soooooooo let my blog down :O( been really busy though in my defence, things with the shop aren't much better I'm sorry to say. Why is it folks don't tell you the whole picture untill your neck up in poo, it looks like we're on for the planning permission but it turns out the building warrent is a bigger deal. We have enlisted the help of an architect who has came out for a look at the shop an thinks we;ll get it fine, unfortunatly the bad news is we have the most stricked guy in the council dealing with it, never mind whats another spanner in the works. This means the shop will be open christmas/new year time, not good for the tourist season but great for getting into a routine and getting the workshops up and running & hopefully the crop club, never mind it will all be good in the end.Here are some random pics from the past few weeks ......

I've also been busy scrapbooking WOW I know, I looked at the pile of my pictures that keeps getting bigger so in my quest to give myself a kick up the ass I decided to enter Scrapbooking Best Of British, scarey as hell but so far I've completed 3 layouts in three days a complete record for me.
