made something... yay

I didn't make this one! Morgan had his stitches out, squirmed a bit but all 6 were removed, didn't keep them (thankfully!). It's healed up nicely but I guess he will be scarred for life, something to show his mates!!

And I made something, yay, been a bit off making stuff - trying to get stuff on the new website really which has taken f-o-r-e-v-e-r and there is still loads of stuff lurking to get on it.

So, the card, a whisper white base and using the a tree for all seasons. I stamped three of the trees on to kraft and the winter scene onto black cardstock using a piece of grey for the mount. Added some whisper white ribbon and stamped happy birthday (trimmed down from the birthday stamp in the birthday best set). Not sure if you can see it but added some sparkle with some stickles. I added a bit of color using watercolour crayons and colouring pens (promarkers and copics).

OMG, you so have to have a go at this

{all credit to the bag shown goes to Efemera Ink}

and other calico bags, the supertalented Efemera has done wonders, I get lost in her blog, I currently have some fabric ready to make some of the little owls that she recently made - not being a great stitcher I have even revived the trusty sewing machine. If you check out who Efemera designs for you will find some calico bag kits so you too can have a go too!

A busy Wednesday. Went into Norwich, Morgan negotiated the new Harry Potter Lego game, the Wren wanted the Broadway dance game thingy, Ben will get to play them both. Anyways, the games came home and were put to one side ready for the munchkins to get in from their respective schools. The Broadway one was looking at me so I gave in and got it unwrapped, heck it is fun but well I can't dance BUT the nearly 5 year old certainly can! I am just going to work on the one dance, the Time Warp!!!! It is certainly one to play with the curtains closed until you are super fantastic and don't mind showing the world you can dance!!! So that was the warm up ready for the evening activity with my friend Allison. Not as expected, harder than you think and certainly parts are aching today, why, we went belly dancing. It was, we had a whale of a time and are back next week.

I haven't made anything with paper for a few days, instead I have had my crochet needle out. Currently making a square, which I am pleased to say is still in a square shape, I think I am getting the knack of tension :)

Also looking forward to my crop, I know it is in August but it is the time when I can sit and stick and chat with my crafting buddies from early til late and meet up again :)

I've been seriously lacking in blogging. No excuse, just not a lot going on really. Have got my crochet hook out, made some cards, someone special is now 17 and someone who is 8 has 6 stitches in his leg from taking a tumble. Both of the latter two events happened on Saturday! I've been sorting out a heap of paper and stuff, taking snaps, resizing etc to get them on the www.

We've had fresh lettuce and delish strawberries from lottie, have had to spray the chooks with some pecking spray, poor old TwoDees has been pecked about a bit, mainly by the new girl we think (Sophia le Hen) but I did catch the other two girlies giving her some grief. We are at 2-4 eggs a day, so are never short of an egg for a egg buttie :)

A Lancia something is on the hardstanding at the top of the garden, requiring an engine somethingorother (it makes a knocking sound when it goes). It's a lovely car, will be nicer when it goes property and in 7 years will be a classic!!!

Off to Slimming World on Thursday with a friend, considering pilates (knackered back this appears to be the thing to do), need to get fit!

Finally, I could do with a holiday!
