I took the folloing photo about half an hour ago and it's still blooming snowing!
...so what have I been making today?
It's still blooming snowing here but I suppose we should be grateful that at least we only have inches to measure rather than feet!! (gosh that gives my age away lol) It was freezing in the shop today, in fact I was so cold I came home at 2pm! Not something I would normally think of doing but I couldn't warm up and I had made myself a bowl of porridge :). The heating had been switched off since I left on Saturday afternoon so the place had got really cold. I left it on when I came home today so it should be all warm and toasty when I get there in the morning. I saw two people all day....a lady who came to bring me some hats and gloves for the Kids Co and the courier who came for their parcel.
Not much to show now but I have updated the Wrap Up A Kiddie donations page as promised.
on the crafting front again last week so there is plenty to add here! I've got a busy week this week too so will have even more later :)
I'm not sure if I will stay open all day today as we have had yet more snow overnight and it is still snowing so I'm pretty sure I'm not going to get many people into the shop!
I updated the Wrap Up A Kiddie page last night if you want to have a nose and see what we have been up to. I have a couple of rather large wool donations to photograph so will upload them this evening.
These were all made last week for the shop but I forgot to add them to the work I showed off!:) I love making jewellery, especially now I have the shop, I use it as my way of unwinding.
How did that manage to sneak up on us again? It is ICS time again and this week we are sponsored by Some Odd Girl who is offering three digi stamps of your choice to the winner. The sketch this week is by the super talented Stacy
Well it is at my shop anyway :) My mum and I spent from 9am till 5.30 on Sunday changing all the stock round, adding new Christmas stock and mum stripped out the window and redressed it for Christmas.
Not meaning to wish my life away, I am really looking forward to Sunday. My parents took me to the wholesalers today and we (meaning I paid and mum chose lol) lots of lovely Christmas decs and flowers and things and we are going to redo the shop on Sunday morning :) Mum does the window for me so no doubt it will be gorgeous....she is in her element when 'messing' with that sort of stuff and I'm more than happy to let her :)
So, the first two cards were commissioned by our sub postmaster and his dad, which have amused me really as they sell greeting cards lol Not brilliant ones I must admit but they do stock loads!
Well peeps, as always Kathy came up with another of her fab sketches to which we all (the DT) came up with very different cards as usual. We also have the chance this month to welcome the newest member of our team, Lynda from Lynda Loves Crafting and the Daring Cardmaker's blogs. Her work is just gorgeous so make sure you stop by and take a look :)
I haven't been able to get onto Blogger for just over a week for some unknown reason and it has done my head in! It wouldn't let me log in and every time I put in my log in details it just came up asking me to log in again as though it was stuck in a loop. The strange thing was that when I published a comment from the link in my email it took me to the log in page but the comment came up as published........strange but being technically challenged I haven't a clue what was going on. It is so good though being able to access my dashboard etc :)
I have done a fair bit of work and not been able to show it but am now going to remedy that...you have been warned lol
Wedding cards for hubby.
