Ooh what a lovely day I had yesterday teaching another full Thru' the Year scrapbook class. Even though it was hectic we had a lovely morning of laughs and gorgeous cupcakes made by Marge. Who can resist white chocolate buttercream?
Teaching the same class Wednesday and then moving on to April, May, June layouts - we will have half of 2011 scrapbooked before we know it.
Meet Warren from Craftwork Cards. He arrived Thursday. We have a selection of goodies to make the card shown and other equally lovely ones.
And then to cap the day off our Paperartsy order arrived with the most wonderful stamp sets and matching dies. Debi and I were excitedly planning how we can incorporate some of the stamps into our fast approaching card camp! (Card Campers start watching that mail box for your joining letter).
Today I have been up since 5.30am. It is no good but once I wake and start thinking about the day I have to get up and get on. And I am particularly excited about today as we are opening up our caravan in Welshpool for the year. Boy how we love that haven. We only normally manage to stay over Saturday to Sunday but we do try to get there as many weekends as we can. It is a place we rest, relax and lick our wounds! The dogs love it as they spend most of the weekend outside on the balcony overlooking the trout lake. Nige gets to fly fish - well he does a lot of standing about! And I get to nap and read! We do manage to get quite a bit of work done but it doesn't really feel like work there! We have no Internet connection and very poor reception on our phones as we are in a valley so it is a real break from routine.
Wanted to show you a couple of cards Esther made at our demo last weekend. We are expecting another order of creatable dies this coming Tuesday or Wednesday.
Some more birthday cards to follow on next blog update!
Hope you manage to have a crafty weekend - I have packed some crafty stuff!
PS just thought you might enjoy this photo Joel took on Euston Station. This guy on the right was one of the highlights of their trip to London! It doesn't take much to amuse our kids!
