....even when your not having fun!!
Haven't blogged for nearly a couple of weeks!!
Where shall I start?..
Been a little hectic here...
My usually fit and healthy Hubby has been very poorly with a severe chest infection (bordering on pneumonia) so I've been playing nurse!! ..back and forward to the docs and hospital for blood tests and x-rays!!
He is on his second course of antibiotics now...so... fingers crossed we will see an improvement soon!!
So when some
arrived through the post just recently it really helped put a much needed smile on my face!
First of all I won two tickets to the ...
The show started today, but I'm hoping to go sometime over the weekend...
A good excuse to stock up on some craft goodies!!
(Well it would be rude not too!!)
Anyone else out there going?
....then I was over the moon when I found out that I had won the talented Valerie's (Bastelmania) generous giveaway...
A gorgeous crackle vintage effect
(Now anyone that knows me and has followed my blogs/flickr will know how much I adore an altered matchbox!!)
...which arrived with beautiful handmade tags, card, minibook
and lots of wonderful inspirational goodies to play with!!!!
Thanks again Valerie!!
for spoiling me!!..Love it all!!
...and there is more...
a little while ago
I did a post on Prayer Flags
and asked if anyone fancied a prayer flag swap..
well I got a few takers....
Look at this little natural stunner...
This arrived from the lovely Liz (Lululiz in Lalaland)
I just adore all the textures, elements and of course, the bits and pieces of nature she has added.
..and such a positive word...PRESERVE
and some delightful extras too....
Thank you soooo much again Liz!! Lurve it all!!
Now, my prayer flag to Liz has just gone postal, so not to spoil her surprise, here is a little sneaky peek of what I sent to her for our trade...
...and one more sneaky peek, this time for Jen (Jenxo)
Jen, your prayer flag should be on a aeroplane to Australia as I type!!
...will reveal all when they both arrive at their destinations...
and talented Tina from Minneapolis (Flickr link)
wanted to swap as well
She sent me this fabulous colourful beauty...
I just LOVE IT!!
Tina has fused down all the fabric pieces and hand stitched it all.
How cute is that little owl.
and yet another positive word GROW.
Now, my flag for Tina hopefully should of arrived by now, so I will show what I made...
I was flabbergasted... what a wierd coincidence...we both used Owls!!
Thanks again for a fabby trade Tina!..
Well, I think thats all for this time...
Off to catch up what I have missed in Blogland!!
Thanks for Peeking!
