Nearly there

Hi All 

This week I have been on a happy high, because I have the week off with hubby Dave.  

Monday      We had a new fridge delivered. John Lewis came in took the old one and the packaging from our new fridge. 

Tuesday      Family Christmas cards Check

That's right for the first time in a long while I have completed the important family Christmas cards and its November. I'm a very happy lady, All that they need is add an insert which I am working on now and then come December I can with confidence send them off to the right family members on time and not the day before we leave for there house for a change.

Wednesday Chill out 

Went to the cinema and watched Spectre and went out for dinner to a new street food restaurant. 

Movie was great.Not going to give too much away just in case. 

So dinner it was an all you can eat restaurant but they offered Mexican, Italian, Chinese, Indian, Thai, and American food. It was really nice indeed.

Thursday     Birthday cards and anniversary card

I am on a roll as I have also completed 2 birthday cards and anniversary cards ready for the people in December. 

I have always found it hard to do these as Once I get to the end of November to think deign I am not inspired and then always disappointed that its Christmas related when I do get to make these cards. However I am getting the Autumn feeling instead but I think I managed to get over it. 

Friday          Nearly forgot to do this one. 

So Friday morning I wake up thinking that its, I am carded out now. Then as I was tidying up the living room it hit me. 

Baby card for my friend and his wife.using my new Crafter's Companion Create a card accordion die. This is what I made is the main template and added loads of girly embellishments. I was very happy with the result.

Also Dave bought a guitar and is planing to learn how to play. He now knows how to tune it and watching loads of videos on how to play. This afternoon he suggested we both learn how to play Aubrey by bread. He plays the guitar and me on the violin. I feel sorry for my neighbors, I have not played the violin in years and pretty sure I am very rusty. 

All that needs to be done is the Christmas presents. This year I am going to make my friends children bracelets and homemade sweets. not sure what sweets I will make it will either be marshmallows or chocolate fudge.

I do hope you enjoyed the cards I have made this week.

Autumn Half Term

Hi all hope you are all well?

It's the autumn half term. I am so excited. I have 2 weeks of quite time and 1 week to get everything back to scratch (no pressure) I walked through the college building and it was so quite with most tutors in training. 

So just to recap crafting wise. Last week I made a bracelet for wear it pink. It had such great reviews that I plan to make Christmas bracelets and working on the next week. I can't wait to show you all. 

I also wanted to share a birthday card I made last week but forgot to share on my blog.
