Card Marathon

Hi there guys I hope you are all well x Thank you so much for my WOYWW comments I am trying to get around to you, so I apologise if I haven't yet but I will soon. Anyway on to other things. I have had the BEST day ever. Julia from WOYWW and Ally are 2 scrap ladies and today was their card marathon. It was based here in Tidworth in the community centre which was perfect as just down the hill from me :-) I went with Kelly from Caesar Crafts and we had the most amazing time. I learnt so many new things - alcohol inks, nesties, glimmer mists, how to tie a bow lol. There were 34 cards (I think) to complete and I managed 22. I have bought some more home to finish too. I have to say that maybe I would of completed them all if I hadn't spent most of my time eating cake!!!!!! Oh and the food was outstanding. Lunch lady Jan who if you have read Julia's blog you would have heard about already, spent the whole day slaving in the kitchen so we could have cakes, drinks etc when we wanted them. Lunch was brill and I was stuffed afterwards so I only had one slice of cake for pudding........... One pic with flash on and one off - sorry about bad piccies. There was talk about them having a summer marathon too so if you are close by I urge you to sign up as it's a great day. I have had the most amazing time spending the day crafting side by side with my best friend making some fabulous cards. Thank you so much Julia and Ally you worked so hard for today and it was very much appreciated/ Take care Laura xx

Well it's Wednesday again so that can only mean one thing WOYWW. Here is my desk today. It's extremely messy, But I am in the middle of making a few boxes so everything on there is for a reason - apart from the lollipops which are there for the boys obviously.......... I have 6 boxes to make so am going to try and get them finished today and then hopefully I will be back to a tidy desk. No promises though. Pop on over to Julia's if like me you are extremely nosey and like looking at other peoples work desks. Laura x

Some stitching

Well good morning guys hope you are all well. I have a desk full of stuff but nothing I can show you yet - give me a few days and all will be revealed. As the nights get darker and colder I have my stitching back on a hoop in the living room and this is what I have stitched this last week. The fabric behind the designs is what I have used as the backing. The blue check is my sons old Junior J pyjamas that I couldn't part with. This is January and February designs. I have the whole twelve months to do so am hoping to have them all displayed in a basket. I have managed a few LOs this weekend too so I will post them up this week too. Enjoy your day Laura x

Halloween Card

Here is the Halloween Card that you could see on my desk in my WOYWW post. I have used Imaganisce papers and stamps. I cut the eek out with the cricut. It was a easy card to put together as everything was from the same range. I am entering this into the following challenges Thanks for looking Laura x

Good morning everyone I hope you are having better weather than us here, it's rain and wind today. I am early doing my desk this week as I have to take ds2 to the hospital at 3.40 so we are going straight after the school run and going shopping first. Here is my desk as I left it last night. My copics in their basket, twine, orange box I have made ready for sprucing up. The boo sign was in my last post and the card will be posted tomorrow. The red book well that's what I live by, it has the list of things I need to make for the rest of the year now. I have quite a few orders in as Christmas is coming so I need to keep myself organised. The choccies are for gift bags for the Halloween party (shhh I have had a few). Well guys that's it for me today. When I get back tonight I will start visiting you all. If you want to see more desks hop on over to Julia's. Happy Wednesday Laura x

Firstly let me please apologise for the terrible picture, my camera died just after I took this so I couldn't take anymore. Over on two peas in a bucket they are having a Halloween month. They will be posting a new project daily and it started today. The one on there is stunning mine is a cheap imitation but I am pleased with the outcome. I have used all Imaginisce papers and stamps. I am going to hang this in the kitchen. I am having a small Halloween party and Kelly (Caesar crafts) and I are making up lots of Halloween goodies for the children. We have many ideas on food so I will make sure after the party I will do a post. Well I am off to catch up on sleep as we had a very busy girls weekend away and am now shattered. Laura x
