Not a Snowflake!

Well, here I am again. Weekend is here and I have been working full time for the whole week so was a bit tetchy and tired last night. Neither of us could be bothered to cook supper so I had porridge at 9.00 and husband had a take away pizza!! I know, don't tell the diet fairy.

So, bed by 9.30 and asleep by 10.00. Tossed and turned most of the night and finally gave in and decided to get up and do my first listing on Misi for months!
So, at 7.15 a.m. I have photographed and listed and StumbledUpon, Tweeted, Facebooked and Googled this bookmark.

They were popular last year at craft fairs, once people realised what they were!!
Have a few left so they are cheaper this year.

Have a good weekend and keep fingers crossed for good weather.

What would you do if there was housework to do, you are working full time (normally part time) and you needed to get ready for work and have breakfast?
I know, let's update the blog!!!
As you know I am making my Christmas Decorations and this is a small sample of the ones made so far.
Each one takes between 45mins and 90mins. So, that is a lot of Housework Evasion.
Have a good day girls and if you live in South West of England, make all secure, the storms are on the way.

Hello There!

We had such a lovely day yesterday. We went to the wedding of my brother in laws youngest child. Kitty has always been the family baby and is also a tiny little thing. She has a fun personality and is a very talented teacher and dancer. Anyway, she married the lovely Kirk at Coombe House, Blagdon and she looked fabulous. I do not have a picture to show you yet so popped in another snowflake!
I know, another blessed snowflake!!
Bye for now x x

This photo reminds me of the good time we all had at the Misi Event last year, and also, how many decorations we need to make for the craft fairs we have booked for this year!
We have a new snowflake design for this year, if you want to add it to your collection!!

I am amazed to find that people are wanting our decorations in July! Yes, I took an order for 8 snowflakes in July...So, now the ball is rolling I am going to list these, two angels and a tree. I made these last year and they got lost at the bottom of the bag. I searched and searched at our final craft fair but they stayed hidden. I think chocolate and cream decorations are good. What do you think. Are you more traditional?
Anyway, I have also taken part in a swap on Twitter. I received such lovely gifts. A very pretty bead crochet bracelet from Mrs G Knits. Fabulous sunglasses case from PantsandPaper and a lovely beach bag from Harvey Crafty Cards.
This is what they had in return. A necklace made from seed beads.
The one in the picture is in all shades of brown and gold and reminds me of wet sand. It is for Sam at PantsandPaper. This picture is a bit dark. Mrs G had a purple one, the colour of the heathers on Bodmin Moor when we were driving to St Ives, and Nat at Harvey Crafty Cards should have received hers today, it is mixed blues and is so like the sea last Sunday at St Ives.
I am off to bed now, it has been a long day with work, ironing and beading!!!! See you soon x
p.s. Bother, the pictures came out on top of each other...I thought they would be one at the top and one at the bottom. :( Night x
