We interrupt this broadcast for a short break...

Hello's been a while, hasn't it? Apologies for my absence, but I promise I'll be back with regular updates of what I've been getting up to next week.

For now though, here's a little illo' to whet your appetite; this one is taken from a wrap I sold to Glick designs - out to buy in the UK (click here to see):

- there seems to be lots of these little fellows buzzing around at the moment; for some reason they seem to have taken a distinct liking to our bathroom (grrrrrrr!) 
- get out, I tell you; get out, get out, get out!!

Pesky wasps...

Gathering up the poppies

Well, the beautiful poppies that we had in our garden have finally expired and dried out (sigh), so I spent some time yesterday gathering up all the seed heads and shaking out all the seeds ready for next year....I almost think that the seed heads are as beautiful as the poppies themselves:

And look at all the seeds that came from just these few heads; a huge bag full:

- we'll have poppies galore next Summer! :D

Mr Frog's back again by the way - he popped out to say hello as I was busy - then swiftly retreated under the shed! Think he's getting bigger - his legs looked MASSIVE! (maybe the large amount of rain we've been having for the past week did him some good!;D)

More Christmas....

I'm working on some more Christmas designs at the moment...replenishing my stock after doing lots of everyday for the past few's a little chirpy chappy taken from one of my latest pieces; I wonder if he's singing a Christmas song...?

Have a great weekend everyone!

Back for good??

Wow - after much speculation, and waiting, it's finally happened.......4 have once again become 5!!!

...yes, indeed - I was a die-hard Take That fan; right from the days when it all began,  and am thrilled to hear that the boys have finally come together again for one last time - looking forward to hearing what you've come up with guys; be great to hear Rob's vocals on the tracks again! :D

Summer's taken a little break....well, at least I hope that's all it is?

Oh dear....looks like I well and truly jinxed it last week by saying that it was possibly the longest spell of Summery weather we'd had in the UK for a long time......this week has been wet, wet, wet, and more drastically...cold...boooooooo!

Ah well, at least it's kept these pesky fellas at bay for a while - they just kept landing on me all weekend.....

- not entirely sure on their true name, but a friend of mine affectionately nicknamed them this because of their shape....and I have to agree! Anyone else been bombarded with commas lately?! ;)

Let's hope the St Swithin's Day rule doesn't apply this year....don't fancy another 39 days of rain!!!

Summer's STILL here! :D

- WOW 

- I think this possibly has to be the longest spell of good Summery weather we've had in the UK for a LONG time; it's been beautiful, and these little bugs and flowers are very h-a-p-p-y about it too - just look at their little faces! :D

Hope you all have a happy shiny weekend everyone!

Wedding memories....

My brother and his wife are celebrating their 3rd wedding anniversary today - BIG CONGRATS to them!! - I can't believe how quickly the time has flown! It was a beautiful day, with the weather being extremely kind to them too after lots of heavy rain in the preceding was glorious! :D

Here are a few snaps from the day (and that's me in the purple frock by the way - chief bridesmaid no less!)

I was also kindly asked to do the wedding stationery for them, to co-ordinate with their theme (this being my first ever shot at it!) I loved putting it all together - from the invites, to the orders of service, to the seating plan...I did it all. Here's a little taster:

We Three Kings

...of Orient are...

*yet another design that will hopefully be converted in to a pop-up card...

I wish I was a cat........

- she has the right idea! :)

*by the way...following on from last week's posts - was gutted that Murray didn't quite make it to the final, but, I'm a very big Nadal fan too, so it all worked out good in the end...maybe next year Minty, maybe next year... :)

Happy, happy, happy! :D

 - I'm grinning like a cheshire cat today; not only has Andy Murray successfully made it to the semi-finals (a match I cannot wait to see!!), but I've also bagged myself some top tickets this morning to see the fabulous Tim Minchin in December - WOO-HOO!!! :D
