Good morning Everyone and Happy Monday to you All!
We had a lovely sunny weekend here and went out to a lovely village pub for lunch on Sunday. We took my husbands open top Jeep (the girl's weren't too happy about it as it ruins their hair!- even Lola's ears were flapping about in the wind. We were able to take in all the smells of Spring, some nice and some not so nice!! We got an excellent view of the bluebell woods as well which really are beautiful.
I must quickly share with you something I am very proud of in my garden. My "handkerchief tree." It was bought for me 13 years ago by my mum and dad for my 30th birthday (oops, really giving my age away there!!) - well, look at it now, after 13 years it has bloomed handkerchiefs! I was so happy when I saw this - aren't they unusual and very beautiful.
On the Crafting side of my weekend I have managed to do quite a few layouts and inspired by a new book I ordered off Amazon "Doodling for Papercrafter's", I did exactly that! I doodled an entire 12 x 12 page - it is meant to be a way of reminding myself to add my own doodles to my scrapbook layout's as they can really lift the page! It was very therapeutic.
Well, that's about all for me this handmade monday, I have to go to work today. I really just do it as a favour for a friend every now and then. It's a handbag boutique in the historic town of Arundel. http://www.sorbetaccessories.co.uk/ It's not work really, it's a lovely place to be and everyone who comes in says how lovely it is and what gorgeous stuff we have in there. I will let you into a secret - I actually pretend I am the owner whenever I work there!!!! (How mad am I?? - don't worry, my friend knows I do this, she just goes along with it if ever she pops in while I'm there!!) If I am not busy I sit with my i-pad and visit all my favourite blogs, one of which I will be visiting today is Wendy's blog at http://www.1stuniquegifts.co.uk/blog/ to see what other crafty people have been creating.
So must go now, have a great day - I'm off to play shopkeeper!
