This 'n' That

I've been a bit of a dabbler this week, not really knowing whether to ink and paint - or cut n paste- or get hooky crocheting.So I've spent a couple of evenings snuggled on the sofa crocheting and messing with wool and hooks,an evening trying to make a Grungepaper rose  and an evening making an anniversary card for a friend and a birthday card. I used Kaisercraft papers and flowers for the cards and the grungepaper rose was made using the gorgeous stamps by Paperartsy


So all in all a bit of a wandery time ! I get like that sometimes,I have so many things In my head and want to do them all at once and am not very focused at all.
I've been meaning to take photos of a gorgeous little shop we have here,it's basically a card shop but lately they have added some lovely crafty type things,a few months ago they had a range of Cath Kidston goodies - shame they didn't have any bags,I SO want one! Then just recently they've had some lovely cushions and odds and ends.I love shops like that,and it certainly brightens up Monday morning on the way to work.


Am looking forward to tomorrow for two reasons...
  • It's Craftystash Crop Sunday - sadly on my own this month as Deb and Jane have other things on
  • Youngest son is coming home from Uni - his first year over with and the whole summer here...back to shopping for dinner straight after work and booking haircuts and tidying up after him ...love it !
I'm getting round to making my little project that the lovely Mel has organised .Still not sure about the tin but have got the mini book under way.
Have a great weekend whatever you are up to .

Such an interesting mix of crafts :-) And the results all look lovely!

I have a great little shop full of beautiful bits and pieces near where I live - I have to stay away from it as much as possible ;-)

Enjoy the project! Remember that the tin isn't compulsory - see how you go with that part. Can't wait to see the finished work! xx

All lovely pieces of Art. I love little shops like the one near where you live. You made me smile when I read your son was coming back for the summer after his 1st year at Uni. My son is home next week too after his 1st year. Can't wait to have him home tidying up after him. Feeding him. Booking his hair appointments, and doing his washing & ironing again, and putting up with his cheek again. Can't wait. Did you see on your last post I put a comment on. I have passed on a blog award to you. Love Sandra x

I know exactly what you mean about having too much going on and not knowing what to do first. I haven't scrapped in I don't know how long but have booked myself a place on a crop at the end of the month and I haven't hooked in over a month so I'm going to do that tonight. So far this month I have managed two cards and a wee hoosie!! Mel's project is underway too. Have a great weekend and enjoy spoiling your son for the summer :0)

I have an idea how you can fit in all the things you want to do and it's so easy, I can't believe you haven't thought of it already ... give up work!
Love the cards, that flower looks fantastic.
Enjoy crafty stash, without me there to keep talking to you, you are bound to get everything done without interruption ;-)

You enjoy your weekend too :)

I've been dipping in and out of different things this week too. I've been knitting recently, which I haven't done in ages. Scary thing? wool is cheaper than scrapbooking stuff!

All lovely creations...at least you produced something ...if I get like that I end up wasting so much time deciding which project to focus on I end up not doing anything at all!!!

I hope you enjoyed Crafty Stash on Sunday...I had to cancel on Saturday as I've been unwell this week...can't wait to see your LO's...I liked the look of the sneak peek!

Enjoy having your son home!!
