california gurls

I did these LOs a couple of weeks ago, but thought you might like to see them.  California Gurls is mis-spelt because of the Katy Perry song which we sang a lot when we were in California last year.  Mark took the photos on his phone, and there's not a "good" photo amongst them, but when all put together, they show just how much fun we were having at Disneyland, and it's not often that we get our photos taken together.

I did take a photo op - and made the girls sit in Mickey's car.  We had to wait a couple of minutes, because there was another family taking photos, we got chatting, as you do...  And the mom told Mark that he was really lucky to be married to me - because I have such a cute accent! Those of you that know me, as well as those that don't, are allowed to laugh at this point...
And, finally, a card that I made for my sister-in-law's birthday...
speak soon, sarah x

i need another hobby like i need a hole in the head

Two posts in one day, wonders will never cease...

So, a couple of weeks ago, I came across this workshop, it played in my mind, I got some paints and stamps out and had a dabble, and then I signed up.  The workshop opens tomorrow, and I'm really looking forward to it.  I'll let you know how it goes...

friday night project

It's been half term around here, the girl's mostly do their own thing, but on Friday I took the day off work, and we went to Worcester for a mooch around.

There are loads of charity shops, where Lou got a couple of items, and independent shops, including a couple of old-fashioned sweet shops, where Phoebe bought quite a few different types of sweets.  And, of course we had to pop into the scrapbooking shop...

I was very restrained, all we bought was a house/shelf thingy each...  We came home and started to decorate them straight away - instead of leaving them hanging around...  Three people sat around one table came up with three very different items.  

Lou painted hers - complete with stars in the night sky in the roof, and a garland of daisies.  She added some paper flowers and bling from my stash. And it is now home to one of her my little ponies.

Phoebe painted hers white, and then added some Amy Butler papers. We came up with the idea of adding some hooks to the bottom, for some of her necklaces, and she added some bits and bobs from around her bedroom.

I painted mine white and added some Sassafras Indie Girl papers, and some stuff from my stash...

hope your week's been good, as well...

the good stuff

Last week my sister and I had the same day off for the first time since last year, so we went out for the day.  Worcester was the destination, to go to this shop

Went to the Bromsgrove crop on saturday, and made this card with the very talented Deb

One of my recent discoveries - who knew these were so yummy!  Made me happy, I thought I didn't like peanut butter, probably still don't, well, not on sandwiches anyway.

What's making you happy?
