Second Day of Notebook Gift Sets.....

 Morning all, second day of my notebook gift ideas. I bought these 5 small hardback notepads for less than £1 in the range. I decided to combine them with a matching post-it-note pad and a pen on a base.
 What do you think of them??
 Do they need anything added to them??
 Your comments/suggestions are always welcome.
That's it for now..... x

V.W Campervan Notepad, Pen and Keyring Sets..

 Morning all, I've been making a few notepad gift sets up. Here are the first lot. V W Campervans are still very popular at my craft fairs....normally manage to sell something about them each time.
I thought I would start making little gift sets know....ready for the end of the year LOL !!

Thinking of doing a big gift set....sort of hamper.....with a collection of Camper van gifts. Will have to work out costings.... (watch this space as they say!!)

Bye for now x

A Bit Of A Catch Up........

Morning all, I hope you are all well and happy.

Nothing new to show you today. I've been busy last week, as my eldest was home, I also went out for afternoon tea with my 2 friends from school, had to take Dan back to Oxford on Thursday, and did a craft fair on Sunday .....Phew what a week !!!

I've been busy making things ti re-stock my craft fairs....but as nothing new haven't posted anything.

Sunday was a glorious day....the setting was fab, there were loads of people, it was well organised, and the sun was shining !!! I did quite well too !!

It was advertised as a "vintage fair", and there were people dressed in 1940's style clothes, having their photos taken. There was also a lindy hop demonstration by 3 couples (who were well into their 50's) and did remarkably well. 

A good day all round.

A quieter week for me this week. Having carpet laid on Tuesday, and doing a craft fair on Friday.

Hopefully this will give me a bit of time to make new things to show here.

Don't forget you can order items from me via my etsy shop
"" or my facebook page ""

Bye for now xx

Would You Cuddle Up To A Fox ?????

 Morning all, a quick blog, as my eldest is in my craft room, so I've just managed to sneak in and do this blog !!

I've made this fox hot water bottle cover (although it could be used as a tablet case). A simple pattern, knitted in chunky wool, which knits up quickly.

Whilst I was in my craft room on Saturday (before I had tidied up and my son had arrived) I was on my laptop when my dog, Rolo, decided he wanted to look out of the window. I think it was because I had opened the large window to refresh the room before my son arrived. He kept pestering me, until I made a space for him to lay down and look out of the window.
He stayed like that for quite a while, just watching the world go by !!

Have a good day, and enjoy crafting XXX

Knitting For Christmas......

 Morning all, hope you are all well & looking forward to the weekend. My eldest will be coming home today for a few days....(so I'll be absent from the craft room).

Did the craft fair yesterday.....very poor.....not many stallholders....or customers. Everyone must be on holiday !!

Never mind, I'm thinking ahead to Christmas. I knitted a couple of these last year and they sold straight away. So I thought I would make a start now and do a few variations. This is the first one. You cant see too clearly from the photo, but his jumper is in a white sparkly wool. I am going to do other colours and maybe do a striped jumper with plain sleeves....or all stripey....the possibilities are endless !!! Well almost LOL !!

Enjoy your weekend. x

MAWTT Challenge :- "Things that fly"....

 Morning all, here we are again with another challenge. This time it's set by Jessie, who wanted to see "Things that fly". I could have chosen the old favourite of a butterfly, but I remembered that I had some ladybird and bee dies by Elizabeth Crafts. 

I decided to use the ladybirds. I chose some polka dot backing paper, and using Spellbinders die (sorry can't remember what it's called ) cut out 2 flower shapes. Then I've used a sharpie pen in red to create another layer, before stamping on the sentiment, and adding the ladybirds.
Pop over to the MAWTT site and see the other DT entries......or why not enter a card yourself.....just for fun!!

Thanks for stopping by. x
