WOYWW Jan 11th 2012


Morning all, not much happening on my desk this week, my gorgeous new bag arrived yesterday from SU – it was the 2011 Convention Bag and is only available to Demo’s it is so gorgeous i just keep staring at it and stroking it Mr.C thinks i love it more than him!  I have assured him i am just in the throws of lust! Behind that is my box of swaps from my latest Training Day trip at the weekend {more of that later} and a little pop up bin that will be much better at holding my mess than my tiny green bucket!  My diary is out as i have been booking in people for card classes and planning my next lot.  This week is a planning week for me.  Right must go and tidy up my desk stop stroking my new bag so i can get on with some crafting. I have to find my project under there for the Craft Group tonight or i will have to sit and gossip rather than craft – ooo won’t that be different from every other month?! lol

Until next time

Spring Mini Blog Hop!


Hello thank you for joining me today if you are expecting my usual workdesk Wednesday pic pop back later and I'll have loaded that up too.

First today i am taking part in a Blog Hop organised on ILWS forum to celebrate the fact that we have an EXTRA Mini Catalogue this year so not only do we have all the gorgeous lovely's that this brand new catalogue launched today brings we also have another one to look forward to later in the year also!! How fab is that??!!

Well you may ask what is a Blog Hop?? We all get to together and link our posts in a big circle of inspiration and loveliness, so pull up a chair settle your self with a drink and enjoy.

For those that have joined me from Laura HELLO!! and if you would like to start from the first post you can find it at Alison’s Blog.  Right on to my project.


My project today uses a brand new Stamp set and co-coordinating Punch so nice and quick as the punch does all the cutting out for you.  {lazy moi?}


I made these cake picks for my famous triple chocolate filled muffins that my friends request for every visit and birthday i had my two best friends over this week so i thought i would pretty up our cakes with these simple picks.

I used another new punch the 2-3/8” (6cm) Scallop punch to punch the base out of pink pirouette DSP from the Subtles Stack one for each side of the cocktail stick.  I then stamped the cupcake frostings from the Create a Cupcake Stamp Set in rose red with perfect plum sprinkles, and then stamped a cupcake case in crumb cake with a perfect plum ribbon.  Both were then punched out with the Cupcake Builder Punch and mounted on to the Scallop Circles, i finished off the picks with a tail of pretty in pink grosgrain ribbon.


I hope you like my project and will continue with the Blog Hop the next blog on your stop is Sara and if you would like a full list of the participating blogs then head back to Alison Enjoy your hop i am off to hop round everyone else’s blogs now

Happy New Year!!

Fireworks light up the London skyline and Big Ben just after midnight on January 1, 2011 in London, England. Thousands of people lined the banks of the River Thames in central London to see in the New Year with a spectacular fireworks display.

Okay, okay a few days late but the thought is there! lol

I had scheduled some posts but for some reason unbeknown to me they did not post so here i am trying to rectify the mess!

I am also trying {and failing miserably} to be as quiet as a mouse as Mr.C started his History Degree with the Open University this week and is currently ploughing his way through a massive book whilst referring to the set Dvd also!  I think his Christmas present from me will set him apart from the other students – a Gruffalo notepad!!  Mr.C will deny it but he loves the Gruffalo and says he only reads the books or watches the film for the girls sake but who’s he kidding?!?!


So i hope you all had a fabby Christmas with your loved ones too much food and lots of longed for and lusted after presents.  It is officially all over as i have spotted Easter eggs in the shops already!! I mean what is the need really?? Although there is a small part of me thinking cool i can start making my Easter treats well in advance hee hee.

On to the New Year i have loads of plans as always, never resolutions though as i find them to much pressure to stick to and invariably i have broken it by erm …now! lol so they’re not for me!


Lots of exciting new happings to share with you in the SU world but you will have to come back on the 4th when i will be taking part in a blog hop with other Demos arranged on ILWS.

Until then



P.s. the photo is taken from google images it is not one of my own as at midnight i was curled on my sofa at home with Mr.C and a cup of tea :) x
