Me on a Monday

Tuesday, 24 November 2015
Ok, yes this blog post is a day late, but it was started on a Monday, but never quite got finished or posted .. so really I can't be blamed for that, can I :)

So lets see, how was the weekend, and I'm including Friday in it, as I spent a lovely day at the Stitch, Sewing and Hobbycraft show with this nutter lol. .... thanks Jo, for a fun day.
They had some lovely things, and some very talented people showing their creations.  This Gingerbread house, has been all around the world collecting money for Children in Need, as is made completely from wool.
I may have bought one or two things ... but these fabrics all are for projects I have in mind. Well, all but the aqua and red. And those, I just fell in love with. 
Saturday started with a sprinkling of snow, but sadly it didn't last. What did last was things going wrong. Firstly the alarm at the little house went off, next we couldn't find the leaflet letting us know how to switch it off. Then my washing machine flooded. 

Still at least all those things were fixable and sorted. 
The rest of the weekend went without a hitch, and as you can see the bears found it nice and lazy. 
I in turn managed to get all my photos ... no embellishments or cards. In and up to date in my project life album.  Now the fun part begins.
And that leads me onto to a fresh week. 

You'll find me putting out a few decorations this week, and first things first ... My Christmas mugs.  I just love this time of the year. 
As always, I'm waving and thanking the lovely Sian, for her clever idea of these posts, and wishing you all a lovely week xxx

A little Christmas crafting

Thursday, 19 November 2015
But not of the daily December album, which I usually love doing.  No, this year, I'm so behind on project life, there really is no point in trying to do one. So instead today, you'll find me doing a little sewing.

Yesterday, I cut up these beautiful fabrics, and now I need to sew them together for a table runner.

I've been hunting over on Pinterest  for a quick and easy runner, and came across this lovely blog link. Now, I'm not saying mine will look anything as amazing as hers, and maybe I'm shooting myself in my foot by showing you the start of my project. I mean what if it all goes horribly wrong, like the legless bear! ... Still, share I will.

Watch this space for how I get on.

Me on a Monday

Monday, 16 November 2015
You'll find me this morning struggling a bit with this blog post in light of the events over the weekend as we all are, I'm sure.

So lets see if I can make sense of my weekend, and it was a busy one all said and done.

Friday evening saw us go next door for dinner ... honestly, I'm the luckiest girl to be living right next door to my friend and one that's such an amazing cook, we had a fabulous evening, and I could have stayed forever chatting and laughing.

Saturday morning I was off early to a sewing class ... but lets just say, this is what we were making
And well, mine looks NOTHING like it lol.  For a start its still legless, and I need to re-sew it's ears on, but I will (hopefully) share a photo when finished.

I also got spoilt while there, as Simon sent me this photo .... he made me iced fingers, my fav and they were so yummy. Plus my scrapbooking kit from Cocoa Daisy arrived.

Sunday saw the bears having a play date. Our friends have an 11 month old schnauzer, called Holly ... she was born on boxing day.  And they wanted to introduce her to the bears.  It took a little calming down, and a few hissy fits at first, but it soon became the Molly and Holly show. Girls have got to stick together lol.

There you have it.  I wish you all a safe week friends x

Gathering my thoughts

Thursday, 12 November 2015
Some days you just need to sit down and gather your thoughts, don't you.

I think, Christmas is pretty much on my mind most of the year really. I love it. No getting away from it, I'm obsessed. So today, you'll find me making some notes on things like, colour schemes, crafting projects, new recipes to try and cookies to bake.

You'll also find me thinking of new and unusual passwords, as sadly my PayPal account was hacked.

So all in all, its defiantly a sit down with a cup of tea, and make some plans and well, pretty planners, make it all that much more fun.

I do of course have more than one Christmas board over on Pinterest, but here's the main one, if you're interested.  I share some of the others with you another time.

Do please let me know, if you have a Christmas board, as I'd love to pop over and have a look.

Me on a Monday

Monday, 9 November 2015
This Monday finds me playing catch up (again). Simon had last week off, so time was spent at the little house and also, his mum came to stay for a few days.  So in other words, no housework got done. 

Which brings me to today ... I'm just doing an online shop and, well I'd like to share with you what's going on behind me right now.
It's been a difficult weekend for the Bears ... We've had fireworks going off since last Thursday and Bertie has felt the need to bark at every one of them. So understandable they're a tad tired.  

I really do need to get a move on and sort out the kitchen. These two are such time wasters for me.  Have a good week friends

Christmas is coming

Sunday, 8 November 2015
And thank you to sainsbury's for helping me choose my colour scheme this year.

Its the little things

Wednesday, 4 November 2015
Playing with pretty paper is almost as much fun, as playing with these two cuties ... ok, maybe not. But its still the most perfect way to capture the happiness these two bears bring to me.

This layout is how my view looks most days, as a toy is shoved at me and they want to play.

Goodbye October ... Hello November

Monday, 2 November 2015
Goodbye October, and thank you for the lovely weather you bought us. I'm thinking that some of the days were probably warmer than summer. I do love our crazy weather.

It was a lovely creative month, and I kept to my "do something creative everyday" and its got me feeling like I want to continue doing the same this month too.

So the highlights were, celebrating my cousins birthday, winter clothes coming out and getting my engagement ring fixed.  Also, Jo came around to craft all day; we had a fabulous day at a terrier walk and I'm getting myself into full Christmas mode by ordering our food and baking my cake.

There you have it a good month for sure. I've really enjoyed taking a snapshot of my daily life each day, its also a great reminder for me as I'm so behind on project life.

I'll leave you a the letter that arrived the other day .... I'm hugely proud of raising so much, while just having coffee with friends.

Simon is off this week and his mum is also spending a few days with us, so a few lazy days are planned.  Have a lovely week friends x
