Well I cannot believe it is nearly two weeks since I made an appearance on my blog . .. . .. shame on me!!!
So much has been happening. All good though so I can't complain!
Lots of work has arrived and departed .. . .. . .. and some has arrived and will be around for quite a while as some of my happy couples aren't getting married until next year .. .. .. but that doesn't stop us designing and ordering all the materials we are going to need to complete their orders. It just means I need lots of storage space.
Mr Heart has been on holiday from work this week too so that has thrown a spanner into my routine and it has been a case of me grabbing time when I can to escape to my lovely crafty world. It is no good him taking holiday and me ignoring him now is it !?!?!
Nothing I have made over the last two weeks can be shared just yet .. .. but I can share my favourite makes from this month's issue of Quick Cards Made Easy which has just gone on sale.
The first commission I was very fortunate to receive was a technique one called Distress Oxide Inks Made Easy. I had the time of my life with this commission because alongside the fabulous Oxide Inks I used a variety of beautiful stamps from Lavinia Stamps. Hard to choose my favourite from the card collection really because I loved them all .. .. but I will go for this one
Then my second commission was also a technique one called Filigree Panel Cards Made Easy where I used scrummy First Edition Dies alongside sentiments from Digistamp Boutique.
Again I could have posted all of my makes .. .. but this one was my favourite
So there we go .. at least you know I am still alive and kicking (and crafting where I can) until Mr Heart returns to work on Monday.
But there is change on the horizon .. .. Mr Heart is starting self inflicted phased retirement come the beginning of October .. .. and will be working a four day week. No more Mondays in the office for him.
That means my Monday routine will be thrown out of the window. I will need to draw up a new plan of attack for all I want to achieve. But he has been warned .. .. I am not ready for slowing down any day soon. I am having far too much fun.
The best bit of him not working on a Monday will be that he can take over the job of bringing the bins down the drive and washing them out .. .. I definitely won't miss that job!! LOL!!
Hopefully see you soon.
