New Book and lovely button jug

Sorry I have not blogged for a few days, have been busy enjoying all my Birthday treats! The cupcakes have been eaten and they were so lovely! I did save one for Jenny, it only seemed right as she bought them for me! The remaining ones were enjoyed by myself, Gabs(of course) Victoria and her daughter Cordelia, we had a lovely tea party, complete with a new T Cosy creation from Victoria, watch this space!! Fin did not get involved in this one he thought it far too girly!
I had to show you a picture of the fab jug i got for my birthday, also from Jenny, she knows me so well and my love of anything with buttons on!!

This is my latest addition, along with the fantastic Blogging for Bliss. I am quite fanatical about my workspace and this book is just perfect, i really love it.
Gabs and I have been practicing her promise for Rainbows, she is taking it on Friday and is so excited, so this is one day when i really hope that my train is not late as i work in the York shop on a Friday and would hate to miss it!! I hope Gabs remembers it, she should do!!

To all those Dads out there, enjoy your special day!! Fin and Gabs sent their Daddy one of my creations!! He liked it, but don't know if he really took much notice of the words!! Happy Fathers day to my Dad too!! Hope you are reading your Farmers Weekly Dad and enjoying your chocolate!!
Today was a double celabration as it is my birthday too, have had a fab day, got lots of lovely pressies, one of which was the lovely cupcakes from Jenny, pictured above. We all met Jenny and some of her family today at our fave coffee place and caught up on the goings on at Red House!!

As soon as Fin and Gabs saw me i was summoned to the park! well it was glorious sunshine so i didn't mind so much! gave me time to catch up with Jenny who has been at the york branch of Bespoke Country today. Victoria was back today after her wek away in Dublin visiting her daughter Millie, welcome back Victoria, we celebrated in style with a handsome egg sandwich!I am revving myself up for a nights work doing wedding cards, 50 in total for local wedding shop, Wedding Belles.

Hi! This is my first post and i thought i would show you an image from Mary Engelbriets workspace, this is at a workshop that she did, how i wish mine looked like this!! I do try to kep it tidy but always fail in that quest as the creative process takes over!! I have had a day of work today and decided to use it wisely, firstly by having my daily intake of coffee and then checked in on a few blogs, had a good look at Happy loves Rosie and found some great artwork for my blog header, watch this space!!. I then had to tidy up said workspace so i can do some work!!
