Yesterday the craft desks in our room finally got to my other half and he started to shift me into my official room. I've been putting it off

a. because I'm a wimp and it seemed such a big job and

b. because how am I going to get all my lovely stash in one room!!

So the battle has commenced to get super organized. Maybe this will mean that I won't spend endless hours looking for lovely stash that I only find after subsidising with something else, why is that?!

Anyway I did manage a wee craft mid stash sort, an order for a large card for a lady who loves her jewelry and cross stitching.

I have to say getting my sewing out felt very liberating as I haven't done that hobby much since taking up cards. So I not only now want to be super organised and efficient but I also would like to fit in some sewing.

Anyone seen that pig that just flew past my office wasn't just an ordinary pig as it was wearing leathers......that reminds's "Thunder in the Glens" next week. Lot's of hairy Harley bikers clad in black leather, must go and see the bikes again. Honk if your a HOG!

Yippee, I finished this months challenge for our Elgin crop, thanks Tracy for the tin. I have made it for Mabel our surrogate granny who had helped me over the past 10 years being far from our own families.

Today I have mostly been doing housework.......NOT!

Karen set a new trend when it was my second son's birthday and gave me a LO for a picture rather than a card. I was so tickled pink with this idea I decided to return the favour this week for her daughter's birthday. I really enjoyed getting my hands on something pink. Such a lovely idea as it get slipped into an album rather than hidden in a draw or even worse thrown out!

I sat down yesterday and decided to have a go at one of the classes being held this week on UKScrappers. I picked "Stepping Stones" by Mel at ATDML. I really enjoyed getting the old sewing machine back out and working properly. Even if I had to read the manual to see where I was going wrong! It is amazing how it works when you read the instructions!!

My friend Sarah came over to play a couple of days ago and I managed to finish the April, double page LO challenge from Karen at Papercraft's in Elgin. Another page I've been meaning to do for ages done and out the way, yippee.

Been card making again, keeping busy.

I've not been on for a while, busy little bee.
Last week I was fortunate to help out at Papercrafts and enjoy a bit of craft time. We have a Christmas demo day coming up on the 1st of September and classes too so I have been working with some new papers and new ideas. Watch this space!

Yesterday it was our monthly crop in Elgin at Papercrafts and Tracy set us a challenge to alter a tin. I still have mine to finish but I loved the challenge and will let you see the results soon.

DH has finished his holidays now and the rain keeps coming.......summer holidays and the weather is PANTS! Another indoor day today.
