What a day I had yesterday, busy, busy, busy. Real life just gets in the way of blogging and crafting sometimes.
I had the usual routine in the morning, once the boys were safely at school I took the dog for a nice bracing walk. Then it was into work for me with another productive day there.
On getting home I had a quick bite of lunch before picking up my youngest from school.
That just left me time to walk the dog before heading back into town to pick up my eldest up from school as he had an after school club. We had a bite to eat in town before back to the school for parents evening.
By the time we got home and I'd done all the usual daily chores it was nearly 9 and I was pooped. Even my fitbit was telling me I'd done too much, LOL.
On the upside my eldest seems to be doing well at school, he just needs to knuckle down between now and May and get revising for his Higher examinations.
I'm thinking removal of X-box privileges might be a good idea for the next 10 weeks or so, he doesn't seem to agree. Boys!
On to today and this morning I had a lovely leisurely walk along the beach, bright blue skies and lovely low sun, the sort you enjoy out walking but not driving into work!
Don't tell anyone but it almost felt like a nice crisp Spring morning. Looking at the forecast for the weekend it is all set to change unfortunately, it is going to be warming but that usually also means wetter too.
Once back I set to work with my hairdressing head on having now banished any grey, feeling a little younger and more human!
This afternoon I had a Wedding card request to make for a friend with the brief;
name, date, a touch of tartan and the South Carolina Flag.
I didn't know what the South Carolina flag looked like but thank heavens for google. It has a palm tree and a crescent moon, what a combination, I wonder who put them together?
Here's my interpretation.
I like making the two hearts Wedding card with the ribbon and bands in between, my thinking being "tying the knot!"
The paper is from my stash as is the ribbon and rings. The tartan paper is by Craftwork cards and the hearts are by Sizzix embossed with my dotty folder by Cuttlebug.
Right it's now time for another dog walk before heading to pick up my eldest again, another late night at school for him. I'm hoping to sit down later and master my crochet tail, the smallest item seems to be taking the longest to master. That is just me, I won't give in until I have perfection! Or as near as damn it!
Enjoy the rest of today, I hope you are having the same sunny day we are?
