Busy weekend!!!!

Welllllll yesterday my gorgeously stunning godson james was born! I am so freaking excited to meet him, unfortunately he lives many miles away so I have to wait untill next Sunday :(

I've been at a fantastic wedding all day! Last night was chaos as i had to run around picking up my dress, the shoes i planned to borrow didnt fit, i lost my sixpence and all sorts!!
I arrived early this morning to tie the guys cravats for them and drop off the lucky silver sixpence to my lovely friend Claire (the bride!) and more chaos!! Half an hour before the wedding the maid of honours invisible zip broke! And jammed!! OMG!!! But luckilllllly as I was leaving the house I had popped back upstairs to grab a needle & cotton (must be psychic!) so I grabbed it out the car and actually stitched her into her dress!!! And as I left she was dancing away, still stitched in! :)
It was an amazing day tho, dry weather, gorgeous dresses, yummy food, epic cake, elvis impersonator!! everything was stunning and being the crafty thing I am I had helped with the decorations (of course!) I was even thanked in 2 of the speeches! (blushes!!) I'm shattered now & off to bed so I'll blog pics of that another day properly on the computer instead of my phone but for now here's the happy couple!

A day off!! Oh, and then an 11 hour shift :(

Well it appears that my last blog attempt saved instead of published! Oh well, it's all irrelevant now anyway! ;)

I had a fab day off yesterday, I made my husbands birthday card, my friend Claire's wedding card (for Saturday, soooo excited!!!!) AND a Christmas card!
Alison came over and we crafted like crazy! Well, she punched about a million snowflakes and coloured, cut and glittered a whole army of Xmas sweetie anyas!

And then today is Thursday so that ment I had a sucky pants rubbish 9-8 day at work, and after coming out of sale 10 days ago, it's time to guess what launch sale again!! Christmas sale! Seriously?!?! Blah! Glad to be home! Catching up on xfactor USA & off to bed v soon!! Zzzzzzzz!!

Buuuuuuut as its Thursday that also means a new challenge at charisma!! And this week it's snowflakes!!! I <3 snowflakes!! I love snow and snowmen too tho! Almost all of the Xmas cards I've made have snowflakes or snowmen, and the one I made last night was no exception! I love TGFs & the snow, rain, shine anyas are no exception! So snow anya it was! Lol It was too late for the DT (and completely unplanned as its team gems week, and i didnt think ild have time to squeeze in a creation as I've too much to make specifically for people!) buuuut when snowflake mojo hits, you gotta go with it!! So head over to charisma and have a peek at the gorgeous DT work and have a little go! here it is anyways...

Ribbon :D

Just a quick blog as I can't sleep!

I've bought 310 yards of ribbon on eBay tonight!! :o


I can't even sleep because I'm so excited! I just need to order some more ribbon tags as I have a very pathetic ONE empty tag left!! Not acceptable!! Heehee!

I'm using loads of ribbon at the moment in my card making/scrapbooking tho so at least it's a justified purchase, almost! ;)

70s love!!

So tonight I've been to see trextasy! Oh how I wish I could have been late teens/early 20s in the early-mid 70s!! I'm jealous of my parents!!
My dad today announced that he is buying tickets for us all to go and see Steve harley & cockney rebel Christmas week so I'm very excited about that!!! Weve seen him twice before (my dad & myself) but it will be the first time my husband will have been, his interest in the glam comes from me im afraid so after seeing him enjoy the trex tribute, im interested to see how much he enjoys the real thing with steve harley! Come up and see me make me smileeeeeee!!! Haha! (I much prefer other tracks, but that's still a corker live!!!) best get my steeple tone out and snap crackle and pop with my vinyl in the run up! Rhianna first tho! ;) I'm so spoilt!! Haha!!

So after seeing (and being slightly disappointed with) britney last week, the only icon I can think that I would give my left leg to see is... Bowie

One day I shall be peg-legged (I hope!!)
