What will be, will be!

You all know I adore Doris Day! Sometimes whatever life throws at you, what will be will be! Doris gets this perfectly!
I got the most fantastic things for my birthday, one special pressie I got was the following image

This is a card printed from the original which I also received, framed and backed onto the most amazing paper! I will treasure this forever, I got the gift from two guys who have become such good friends of ours, so thank you to Martyn and Stephen. The drawing is an original from one of Martyn's designs so it is copyrighted to him but I just had to show it to you.

On a different track now, Wedding fever is still around!! I have been busy doing Wedding work all this week but had a nice reprieve when  had an order for a couple of Photo Albums for a little Boy and Girl,

I had real fun doing these, but then I had to get back to the serious work!!

For my birthday I also received a fab brooch, let me show you which one!

I love it and it is firmly in place on my jacket!

All in all its been a funny old week! I am glad its Friday tomorrow and Gabs and I will have our usual dance around the kitchen to "The Candyman" on Radio 2 just after 8 o'clock in the morning. It is the start of our weekend and gets Friday off to a flying start!
Have a happy weekend everyone!

A busy weekend and my giveaway winner

It has been a really busy time around here!
Firstly it was Fathers Day, we had a lovely visit to the farm to see my Dad and of course it was the perfect chance for Gabs to see the pigs and the lovely new pony Snowdrop. Will show some photos later on!
Happy Fathers Day to Dad and Will, it was a lovely day for them.

It was also my Mums birthday, which did overshadow Fathers Day a little!! Sorry Dad and Will!
Mum liked her pressies and had a nice relaxing day as we had all been out for a lovely meal on Saturday night to celebrate!

And today is my Birthday so we are well and truly Birthdayed out!!! Though we have not had cake for each occasion! Fin, Gabs and myself have however had some crisps and dip tonight! Some friends popped round for tea and we had some treats for tea! Will unfortunately could not get the night off from work so he has missed out. Saved him some Strawberries for breakfast though!

We drew the winner of my giveaway last night, thank you to everyone who entered and the winner is,
Helen Philipps of
Well done to you Helen! If you do not already know Helen's blog click on the above link and you will be in for a treat.
Have a great week everyone.

Fin and Gabs is nearly one year old!!!

How did that happen?? I cannot believe that on the 15th June I have been blogging for a year!  It has been a lovely year, I have made some really good blog friends and even though I have been absent for a while lately, I still love blog land!! and you are all still there!
A lot has changed in a year too, what a difference a year makes.
I thought I would celebrate with a little giveaway, all you need to do to enter is leave a comment, no more than that. Just thankyou to all my followers, I love reading all your amazing blogs and sharing a little part of your creative life. My giveaway will be open until Sunday 19th June, not very long I know but it has crept up on me and it is my Mums birthday on Sunday as well as Fathers Day so will have to do a blog on that day!!

The giveaway is,

  A delightful Home Sweet Home sign, made by me.

A cute little Home is where the Heart is mini picture, made by me,

 A pretty little porcelain bird, not made by me,

A household  notes book, made by me,

and a couple of little surprises!!
Have a lovely week everyone.

Not again Gabs!!!

Just when you think, "Hey we have got through the half term OK, back to school tomorrow!" what does Gabs go and do? fall, not once but twice! As a treat Gabs had been invited out to play for the day with her friend Tilly and as usual falls over her own feet! She seemed OK but said her hand hurt a bit, so Calpol was given and off to bed we popped then in the morning, (first day back at School!) her hand is swollen and bruised! So off to A & E we went! It turned out to be just a sprain, so all is well that ends well. You have to get these things checked out just in case don't you?
I was just looking earlier at one of my favourite blogs/websites,
and what is on there, a great image of a Doctor!! It turns out that Mary has designed scrubs for Doctors!! How nice would that be here!

You can see the new designs on the website!

Now onto something different, I have been making some new bits and thought you might like to see them,

I saw this fabric and had to have it!!

and this one!!

and this one!!!! This is a new design where I make the book and then leave it blank so it can be personalised instantly with a name or a purpose, I have also used it on cards,

This next one is made using my first ever printed paper design, what do you think?

and not to forget Dads Day approaching, though Dad should have his own special book too!

Think I might get Fin and Gabs to give Will one of these!! (already half full with jobs that need doing of course!) I forgot to take a pic of a Fathers Day card! will do that next time. June is a busy time in our house, my brother hates it as he has our Mums birthday which is on the same day as Fathers Day this year!!! and then my birthday the day after, he hibernates for two days!!
Fin has already had a school sports match, Golf on the very first day back! his school didn't win but he really enjoyed it, tomorrow he has swimming and a footy match on Friday, then training and a match at the weekend!! Blimey Fin it tires me out just writing about it. There is no wonder he is so sooo hungry all the time, we just can;t seem to fill him, I'm sure this is quite normal for a ten year old.
Hope everyone has a great rest of the week doing lots of lovely things.
