Another award for Gabs! and some more makes.

Gabs is having a real good time of it at the moment, her little life is full of parties and nice things (just as it should be!!) Gabs came running out of school with an award which she is really proud of. It is quite amazing that she has the award as she has asthma but she seems to be able  to save up all her bad times for weekends and holidays!!! She loves school!

Gabs has quite a collection of these and I can honestly say that Gabs has not missed more than two days of school in her three years of attendance!! Go Gabs!

Fin on the other hand is simply filling his time with sport as usual and is pleased that his training is still on even though his season is over! Grabbed him a bargain pair of new footy boots, Predators he tells me though that means nothing to me!! He is desperate for the season to start again!!! He has had rounder team tryouts today and is hoping to make the team. How will he fit it all in!!!

I have just been plodding along in my little shop and making lots of things. My makes are now in the safe hands of the Gallery so that is one thing off my list. I normally have a day off on a Monday but decided to go into my shop and catch up on some orders. I have some lovely cards in that I have bought in to try and take the pressure off me and whilst I do sell them as they are all so lovely, people like to order personalised cards which is good for me! Whilst I was in today I had six more orders,  so maybe should have stayed home!!!!

Next Monday I have the first of a set of three workshops that I am doing at one of our local craft shops, I am actually quite nervous about this but looking forward to it at the same time. The shop is called The Craft Store and is in Scarborough on Victoria Road. The lady who owns the shop has a great range of stock but does not have a website yet but it is on the way so I will give you the web address when it is up and running. My first workshop is on the theme of celebration cards.

I have been doing some new things, experimenting really, here are some.

I also have some new items in from some talented ladies!!! The crochet birds are by a lady called Naomi Newton and I met her at the vintage fair in Pickering, she has a lovely blog if you have not seen it called take a look it is lovely and here are her birdies!

They are just lovely!!! I also have the most lovely needlecase and lavender hangings, both with a chicken theme! These are by a lady called Linda Jones, she too has a lovely website called take a look and you will be able to link to her blog from here, and here are her treasures that she makes,

these really are vintage treasures which are so lovely to look at!!!

I need to go and read some blogs now!! Lots to catch up on! Have a lovely week everyone
