Happy Wednesday ladies

Im beginning to think every other day is more than enough to blog until I get up and running with picture tutorials. massive thank you to those of you who keep returning to support me.

I have been up since early doors sorting out some small thank you gifts for my growing stampin up team . Alexia was also busy last night using one of the stamp sets Love you lots . I think she's drawn to the cute animals . I turned her work into tags they look awesome there are pics on my Facebook so I won't bore you by duplicating .. I did make some pretty banners I had to cut them by hand as my banner punch is still on my wish list ... These are easy cute embellishments for packaging or a quick ready made front for a card .

this is what I came up with I think they are rather pretty , I used the subtle range paper and blushing bride card stock and ink, with the small papillon butterfly stamp and punch. The butterflies have a coating of Wink of stella to give them a subtle glimmer.


So todays agenda welllll ..... I have to start my holiday clothes shopping which I despise , I hate changing room mirrors they make me look like a deformed hippo . I shall likely come back with naff all ha ha ha ha .... but I shall try my darned hardest as hubby has kindly left his bank card yahoo who fancies a trip to hobby craft come on ladies lets go !!! .

The website launch went far better than I expected once word got around my phone was pinging all night long so I shall be busy tonight packing orders. I can't tell you how awesome it is that the bills are already done and paid ... no chasing !! and all the address infos right there .... sad aren't I but I will gain about 2 days a week free time just from this factor alone ...so more time for crafting yayyyy.

It is the summer holidays however, so my activity is always less as I have to entertain the princess , not hard to to to be honest she's a good girl.

We had to buy a dog crate to go away on holiday at the weekend I couldn't risk motley and crew chewing Debby's caravan ha ha ... so its now installed in the kitchen at home and I have gone hard and they are in there now when I'm not home and at night ... I have to or I shall have no kitchen left . They don't seem to mind now . Don't anyone tell then I'm shaving them tomorrow ... bald doggies ha ha ha if they look like wallies then I shall walk them in the dark for a week its no biggie.

Today is wages day I do payroll for my husbands firm. HATE it with a passion yuck but got to do my bit saves him paying someone to do it. I did used to work for him full time in his " office" at his work . I lasted about two years then he SACKED me !!! how very rude ... but what an achievement to get sacked from a job you don't get paid for ...by your HUSBAND ! . He said I had an attitude problem , I'm mean ..ME ? ha ha ha ha .

My craft room yet again looks like the police turned me over and on top of that I'm sure the borrowers live here as I can never find what I need , then it turns up like on top of the toilet or somewhere equally strange ..

I shall leave you ladies until the next instalment of living the crafty life AKA .... making ones self look busy so the husband doesn't make us get a job, have a fab day xx A
