You might think I've lost my voice 
with all these signs
but I haven't
 It's just that I found my stamps and ink pads
 and I wanted to play.
One of my mad knitting friends put this sign on her facebook page.

Have a happy weekend everyone
I will keep popping back to Annie's
Friday Smiles to see who is playing.
Last week was so funny, I was chuckling all day.

Faffing about.....

This morning I started off doing this
Moved on to this
and this
then ended up with this
A Valentines card/book thingy
and a little bunting
made from old book pages, a bit of corrugated card, 
some music paper and a bit of lacy trim stuff
I'm off to make some packaging now to put it in

What's on my workdesk today .........

I made this using baking paper, lace, cardboard and a stamp
 for our friends wedding anniversary next month
Then another day I made some books
This is all because I got a mad creative splurge 
after finishing the VAT return.
Oh, and a long armed stapler from Amazon for £7.50

I'm giving this a go after 
I've had a look around some desks over at Mrs D's.

I started making a little notebook this morning
when really I should have been working in the office.
I will have to go back to it as I REALLY am on the last 
minute with our company VAT return. 

Anyway after a few hours I was fed up and my feet were cold
So I decided to write about what Postman Dave 
brought me this week instead.

I needed a gift for someone and 
it arrived in this hand illustrated envelope. 
Its done by Doodle Ink Jacques of Radstock.


This gorgeous package of stitched pocket bags, stickers and paper string
came from Vicky at THE LINEN GARDEN

 The beautiful flowers are not from Postman Dave but were sent to one of my lovely friends and came from my niece's new florist
Good luck Keeley in your new venture


The background paper came from Paperchase, its double sided,
 and the pretty crotchet flowers from a lovely lady in Ireland.

I will have to finish my work tomorrow as 
I've come to the end of my flying by my pants time.

Have a nice evening and Sunday

I made a birthday card for my Godson Dylan using a photograph of his dogs Fudge, Boo and his nanna Brenda's dog Bo. 
 I machine stitched it onto a buff coloured card.
There were lots of different things being created at our
 monthly craft group meet up yesterday
You can see Melvyn's mini me paper mache man
Sheila's knitted nativity pieces
This is the start of a wrap for sewing bits n pieces I'm making
One being made by Susan as a present 
A banner Barbara is sewing as part of a bunting being made by the group for 
Park Farm Tea Room & Farm Shop where we have our meetings.
Susan W was working on this complicated piece.
Well it looks complicated to me.
Sewing may mend the soul but if Philip 
doesn't stop snoring this might well happen

Have a lovely weekend but first
 see whats making others smile on a Friday over

Artist Lynn Muir's wooden figures

Hello everyone over at Mrs Dunnit's place

wish these boots were mine

I'm stamping my feet in frustration this week
as the only creating going on is in the form of 
creative accountancy


As you can see the dreaded VAT return is
due and I've not put pen to paper yet.

wish this chair was mine

These are the only kind of books I'd like to be sifting through 
right now but there's no time for that sadly.


 Have a good week everyone.
