Just For Mum......

Morning all, a quick blog today.

When I made this V W camper van tea cosy to sell at my craft fairs, my Mum put in a request for one too.

I've personalised it with her name as the number plate.

Enjoy the weekend and additional Bank Holiday Monday. xx

Just The Thing For This Time Of Year LOL !!!!.................

Morning all, Friday again, and a lovely bank holiday weekend ahead. The weather, here in Kent, has been glorious, Hope it's the same where you are.

A friend of my brother's saw this free pattern on Facebook, and asked me if I could knit it for her. It's by Rowan, and is knitted in pure double knit wool.
It will be lovely and warm for her this winter...

An easy pattern to follow, it has children sizes too. The scarf can be knitted without the legs, but I think the legs, completes the shaun look.

My eldest is home for the weekend, having recovered from Chicken pox ( i hope LOL !!). Will let you know if I develop spots next week !!!

Have a great weekend, and thanks for popping by. x

"Cowabunga"  .......

 Morning all, hope you are all well & happy. Today is my friend's Grandson's birthday. He loves the teenage ninja turtles, so I have made him this card.
I got the images from google. I've added "googly eyes" over the masks on the "O" for Oliver.
 When I first made the name, I was just going to leave it as plain green card, but then I realised that I had a grubby mark on a couple of places, so decided to disguise them by stamping stars all over. When I finished, I thought it looked better than if i had left it plain!! Funny how sometimes a mistake leads to something better !!

 The off-cut of the circle, I've used as the sentiment part inside the card.

Hope it enjoys the day.

Bye for now X

Ideal for the teacher who needs a long rest over the summer holidays....

Thanks for popping's always nice to hear from you. xx

Teacher Gifts.....

 Morning all, hope your weekend is going great so far. I did a craft fair yesterday, and boy what a long day it was !!! Very quiet for the first 3 hours, and sold only one thing, then in the last hour it picked up and i sold quite a few more things !! Made a small profit....just wished it was busy all day !!

I'm turning my attention to teacher gifts now. I have made these tubs, with pencils or crayons glued around the outside edge, with treats inside. I got the labels from pinterest and made the gift work with the label.

 Did this candle too, after seeing the quote on pinterest.

 These are plastic picnic wine glasses, which i thought would be better for children to take to school. 

I still don't have a kitchen....hubby working very hard to make more mess and dust before he starts to re-build it LOL !!! On Thursday morning we had 3 lorries turn up almost exactly at the same time with building materials, flooring etc......the neighbours must be wondering what on earth is going on !! We've filled 2 skips in the last 2 weeks !!!

Hopefully in the next week, things will start going in, rather than come out, and that I'll have a lovely kitchen soon. Fed up with the mess already !!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. x

I look very tired in this photo, but i hadn't slept well the night before as it was so hot and humid, and I have just aged another year LOL !! xx

Teachers' Gifts.....

 Morning all, thanks for all your birthday wishes for yesterday, I'm glad to say I felt a lot better and had a lovely day, with an afternoon tea & a meal out in the evening.....feeling very full LOL !!!

My hubby bought me flowers and a dashboard camera, after we watched a programme on tv, about the effective use of these cameras, especially if the accident wasn't your fault !!  Will have to watch my speed now though LOL !!

I have turned my attention away from father's day gifts to best teacher gifts. It seems to gain more popularity each year, so I was wondering what little gift I could make for my stall. A while ago I was in the pound shop, and I saw a pack of 3 pens with a matching memo block. I decided to be cheeky and split the memo block into 3 and make a stand for each block and added the pen, with matching ribbon, and a sentiment (printed on the computer). 

 I think they look like quite a nice gift to give to the teacher. I will take them with me on Saturday to see what response I get.

I will try and put some photos from my birthday on tomorrow, if I get time.

Bye for now XX
