Good afternoon, whilst I have a beef stew brewing on the stove I thought I'd catch up with you after the weekend. How was yours?
I got all the dreaded ironing done and dusted on Saturday, I was there most of the day but it was a good job done in the end.
As for Sunday I don't know where it went. Getting ready to go back to work and school. A nice walk with the dog and my best pal. Not a lot else. A little crafting but not really much to show you.
I was playing with these. I found a die by Sizzix called Canning Jars and I thought it would go well with my Waltzing mouse stamps Seasonal remedies.
I can't decide which I prefer, I was going for the chalkboard look.
The first one is white embossed and the second just white stamped.
Can I make my mind up which I prefer? Nope I can't. One lid shiny and one matte.
Decisions, decisions. I think they'd make good Christmas tags but quite fancy putting them on a card too.
Do you play with bits and bobs before finally coming up with a design?
I'll probably have half a dozen variations before I decide what I like the best. Talk about indecisive!
Which combo do you prefer?
Tag or card?
We were all back in the thick of it today, boys back at school, hubby and I back to work.
I actually had a good day's cleaning and bizarrely enjoyed it. I must have been in the mood today.
Very strange and not at all like me, I guess the holiday away has done me good.
Before I go I just wanted to share something else with you. I don't normally get all girlie but when I saw this perfume on holiday I just had to buy it.
How cute is the packaging. I just had to have it, it's just over 5" tall. So unusual and very neat, don't you agree?
I like things that are different, a bit quirky. and this certainly is.
As they say "a change is as good as a rest!"
I've had both lately, my holiday and now new smelly. I have stuck to the same perfume for years so thought it was time I shook it up a bit. Do you stick to trusted smells or are you more adventurous?
That's all from me today I've just been asked the dreaded question "is tea ready yet!" So I better get cracking. Catch you with more tomorrow.
