It actually gives me chance to make my mum a birthday card as it is her birthday at the weekend.
Remember I mentioned I have birthday money to spend and I couldn't make up my mind what to do?
Well, I have ordered a few crochet books which are yet to arrive with some new patterns for me to play with but I also ordered this......
Now I know a lot of you will be thinking but why?
I have seen a lot of gifts and crafts recently that have stamped messages on them and I decided I would like to have a go. You can get some real fancy fonts from the states but I decided I would like to keep it simple to start with till I see how much I'll use them. They take me back to when I was in the armed forces as we had to stamp all our uniform with our name and ID, this sort of idea was used for items that wouldn't take a regular stamp. Happy times!
My head is already buzzing with things I would like try......another case of watch this space!
I also mentioned another of my gifts that I hadn't shared. Now I got some lovely gifts for my birthday....great jars for storing my crafty bits, thanks Irene, a super teapot, mug and selection of teas which have been in full operation since my birthday, thanks Gill. Some fabby smellies from my pal Gayle, which totally remind me of our shopping trip to America five years ago, more happy times!
Then I got this off Elaine and it just took me back in time....
How retro is this, oh my I had one of these when I was little, it just took me back to my childhood. I can't for the life of me remember what I kept inside it mind but I do think it was crafty bits, did you have one and can you remember?
More importantly can you guess what this one is holding?
I still have more birthday money to spend at some point I just need to decide on what? Any suggestions?
To all my friends thank you for such lovely thoughtful gifts and I'd also like to add I can thoroughly recommend a M & S Percy pig cake too, it was lush.
Back to today and I'm away to strip beds and make a card. My youngest has been tasked with some colouring in to keep him busy. Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with more. x
