Over and out!.......

Evening all, hope you're all ok, and not getting too wet. I've got a smug little smile on me mush, 'cos it's been a fab day down here today. lol.
This is my last post from Devon....home tomorrow. I absolutely LOVE going on holiday, but I LOVE going home again, just as well, I suppose.
 I have a busy few weeks ahead of me now, with wedding stationery to finish for my great-niece, loads of orders to catch up on, and stocking up my boxes for quite a few craft fairs, as well as my DT work.
However, first I want to show you my bargain from this week.....10 huge, empty ice-cream boxes for 10 pence each. Ooooooooo, how much crafty stuff can I get in these babies?!

 Watch this space, and I'll keep you updated on what I make/fill them with.










I've also been beachcombing for driftwood.....I know what I'm going to make with these pieces of wood, and I'll show you when I'm finished x










It was my wonderful son Nick's birthday last week, he was born on the longest day (21st June).....interestingly my other son Adam was born on the shortest day (21st December) three and a half years later.   I made Nick a very quick footie card, (England were still in the running at the time).....Adam made him a card too, as he does for all of us....I love Adams cards, they're always last minute, and daft!....but good.  Might show you some more another night x

My quick footie card. Wish I'd lined up the sentiment better, but I was rushing as usual x


Nick & his wife Emma, and Adam.

Well that's all for tonight folks, sorry it's been a long post. xx
Have a good Friday xx
