Well my workdesk today is at home and has my soon to be new livingroom curtains, they where supposed to be made for the winter but that never came oops :D Finally got round to getting them started on Monday and so for the past few days I've been sewing up the sides, our windows are megga long!!

I also had a little help from a friend with Lily keeping watch over the ones that where finished lol she's such a cutie, can't believe she's been with us for 5 months now!

Get on over to the main WOYWW blog and check the goings on of the others :D

Wedding Season

Been a while since I last blogged but I've been megga busy at the shop tidying, sorting orders & just general ever day goings on in there. I'm due my next Docrafts demo kits so I want to be ready to get stuck in when it arrives as I'm due Boofle, Enchanted Fairies and a few other bits from new ranges, much excitement :D
I've ran low on wedding cards and saw this cute idea on Pinterest & just had to have a go. I've used old papers, I'm being good, the real nice Docrafts heart die,again made using old cut offs and just any nice embossing folder and adhesive pearls :D

There's this boy.....

.....WHo Stole My Heart, He Calls Me Mum x

I decided to do a layout (shock horror) I was tidying and this pic of The Boy fell out :D I have always adored this pic of him and its been lying around as I really didn't know how to go about it.
Well the other day I came across a quote on facebook that made me smile & when this popped out I knew just what to do!!
I think he was about 7/8, back in the day when I still used my film camera, we where on a walk with my folks and I happen to catch him off guard. It's a shame he's growing up so fast, he'll be 14 in August!!! He's turning into a young man, with a temper and short fuse, hormones are a killer, but at the same time a smart guy with a wicked sense of humour :D

I don't often like my layouts straight away but with this pic it can't help make my heart sing & who says you can't use pink for a boy :D

Sculpey Buttons

We took delivery of the fab Sculpey III last week and its been selling well in the shop, so to see what all the fuss it about I decided to have a bash & well I'm in love quite frankly!! 
It is super easy to use and after searching the wonderful internet for some help I produced Cullen Crafts new range of handmade buttons :D

WOYWW 140 - The BIG Tidy

I missed joining in last week as I quite simply forgot it was Wednesday- Oops!!
This week my desk is no clearer but I am in the middle of a re-shuffle as my space just isn't working & I'm hating my rubber stamp storage so time to try something new :D
I have purchased a folder from Artemio for my clear stamps in the hope this will keep them all in the one place, I'm not looking for any sort of order as that would be asking way to much of myself lol
I'll pop a pic on later today to share my progress I have everything crossed there will be a huge difference!!
In the mean time pop a visit over and see whats happening on all the other wonderful desks this week

Well I've been at it since I posted this morn and I can see light at the end of the tunnel :D I think it was a bit of wishful thinking that one folder from Artemio would be enough for my stamps lol I did get more of my clear stamps in their but I think another 4 should do it!!!

CYC Canvas Art

Well it was that time of the week again :D and the kids got stuck in with their canvas art, I thought tonight they would have finished the work but no, they liked their painting too much lol
I must say I am so impressed with how they are really letting themselves get stuck in and can't wait to see how they get on with the doodling next :D

Special Make......

..........For a soon to be special 60yr old :D

My Hubbies Aunt Marion is going to be 60 soon, she defo doesn't look it, so I wanted t create something unique just for her. Aunt M, as she affectionally known in out house, has a special place in our hearts for many reasons but for me she is a lady who has never judged me, took me for who I am and made me feel so welcome, loved and party of her family!
 (same goes for Uncle Clive without a doubt)
I couldn't sleep the other night for trying to come up with an idea, I wanted to incorporate all  the things she loves like adventure, travel, fashion, being Scottish etc 

Finally I decided on the square theme, I had help from Uncle C & Cuz Chris with her fav colour, I dusted off my Quickutz collection and got to work. Although you can see the size in the pics the card has ended up rather large a whopping 10"x10" lol not my usual, its that large it has had to be reinforced oops!!

I have no pics of the inside as her birthday pressie is hiding away in there :D
