Made this one for Stewart's mum - it's actually her birthday tomorrow, but they're going to France so we're going to drop pressies round tonight.
Watching Stu's mum & dad's doggy this weekend whilst they're in France. Will take some jewellery stuff over with me though - might even take my Cuttlebug and dies.
Have a lovely weekend bloggy peeps.

I got this a couple of years ago when my Dad's aunt & uncle moved into a home. It's been shoved at the back of a cupboard ever since, as I thought it was a bit hideous. Who knows - perhaps I'll keep it out for a couple of days and see if it grows on me (seriously doubt it though!!)

Been a long day at work today - started at 7 and didn't get finished til 6, so going to have some dinner and a nice long bath.
Have a couple of cards to make tonight for someone at work - both halloween themed ones, as the little girls they are for both have birthdays around about the spooky day!
All my plans for last weekend went completely tits up, as poor Stu got sent home from work on Friday with a stomach bug and has only started to feel better today, so no meal, wedding or lunch for us - we're going for dinner this Friday instead :D and lunch on Sun.
Was off work on Monday, but spent the day in the house keeping S company (my good deed for the year). Managed to make loads of fimo stuff for card toppers and got a few die cuts done too :D.
Also been spending some time making my Swarovski Christmas spiders - just in case I'm lucky enought to get a rush on them.

A large meal or a plentiful supply, show us 'feast' in your space today.
G gave me these for going round to let Charley out at lunchtimes when mum was on hols and she was at work. Was a pleasure actually cos Charley's gorgeous and she's so well behaved.
Anyways she happened to have a pack of M&S Jelly Belly Beans lying around for her frien'd birthday and I mentioned how much I loved Jelly Bellies and didn't know that M&S did them, so tada now I have some. Don't like the liquorice ones though - ugh.
Looks like a certain Mr Percy Pig may have competition for a space in my tummy now!!!

To grasp, carry or support with your hands. Find 'hold' in your space.
Had the idea to do a sort of Madonna-esque shot, but it didn't really work, so I added a rough pastel filter in Photoshop - not sure about the result - suppose of I look at it with my eyes half shut it could look a bit album cover-ish.
Managed to fill a black bag of stuff from the spare room - need to get rid of odds & sods still lying around, but I reckon I'll get so sick of looking at them that I won't need to decide what to do with them - they'll prob just go in the bin.
Have decided as of tomorrow to try to train myself not to be faff around so much - no wonder I never seem to get anything made anymore, because it seems to be bedtime every night before I even realise it. Don't know where to begin, so any tips gladly received.
Have to make a card for J tonight, as it's her birthday on Friday. Did one for G to give her last night - did my fave at the moment which is a big hand cut Japanese doll on A4 folded in half card. There is a 2cm border of cream card round it, but I sort of screwed up the scan.
Going to the first Scottish Bead Fair with N on Sunday - really looking forward to it, although as per usual at these things, it seems to be happening when I'm completely skint (or maybe I'm just always skint!!).
S's birthday on Tuesday so going to make him a nice theme cake (he reads this blog, but don't have to worry about putting any ideas here, cos I don't have any :P:P:P:P:P)
Toodles for a bit xoxo

A shallow bowl or radio antenna. Find 'dish' in your space.
This is a dish I have in the dining room - I keep a maraca, which my Dad pinched from a bar in Spain before I was born, in it.
