Lovely Gifts and Arty Farty

 I got home from work today to find I had received the most gorgeous heart from my SCC friend Beki
I saw one similar it in her shop and on FB and loved the material but it was not suprisingly sold ....very folk arty which I love so I was thrilled to find she had sent me one as a thank you for a tiny bit of help I gave her
Beki hunny thank you so very much it means alot to me :)

And if that wasn't enough she also included some really pretty CK tissues which I am actually going to try some decoupage with...wish me luck

On Sunday my DD dragged me screaming to Fosse Park shopping centre ...she does this occasionally as I'm the only one who will give her my honest opinion on whatever she trys on and I tend to get her to try things on she wouldn't normally and she usually ends up buying them so anyway she bought me this lurvely purse/wallet  20x11cms and I love it....don't really like UJ stuff but I think its the subdued colours I love on this I have really been spoilt ...thank you girls xxxxx

Now who do you think would buy this coaster with a daisy on....hmmmm sorry but no prizes for a
 correct answer.  I added the name and a pretty pink hanging ribbon with bow.

Well I think this has become a very strange post ...nothing is where I wanted it and the text is all over the place, I think it will take me a while to get my head round this new format.
I am really enjoying my painting and drawing at the moment and have so many ideas I want to try but sometimes not the energy to attempt them.
I really have to leave the arty farty stuff until the weekends as after work am just too knackered after making teas and pack-ups ......... the mojo just aint havin' none of it!

My life is full of stuff..stuff..stuff

I must make a dozen lists a week about various subjects
Lists of stuff to do next day at work, stuff to do when I get home from work, stuff to start on that I've sold, stuff to buy from next door for tea,  general stuff that needs doing in the house, stuff that needs doing in the garden

So much stuff to do....
My best friend and I often think we'd be happy in a convent ...I room, 1 bed, 1 chair, 1 table, 1 sink, 1 toilet, 2 changes of clothes....what more do you need....nothing to remember but then again nothing to forget...
no pressures
life of bliss or life of boredom?

I just wish you could buy bits of memory in tablet form so that I would never have to write another list that I more often than not forget where I've put anyway.
Oh to be a teenager that knows it all and can't be told anything and probably has never had to compile a list !!!

Starting to top up my shop

Over on the SCC forum we are having an auction for Angels charity KIN (Kids in need) ...we donate something to be auctioned and the buyer sends the payment to Angel, anyway Maypole won a gilt/Limoges trinket box that I donated and can I find the chuffin thing nooooooooooooooooooo!!
I really don't know where else to look. I've looked in all the normal places a menopausal woman would put something safe,,freezer..cooker...tumbledryer but its nowhere to be found, so I think its sniffer dog time!


Today I thought I had better start topping up my shop, so I painted some circular coasters, not to be used as coasters but I may hang 3 of them on one wide length of ribbon and sell as a set, and the other 3 will, I think, be sold singulally .

I hope a little girl would like these hanging in her room, my daughter loved them and shes 25 :)

These flowers will probably have a ribbon loop added for hanging, so could be hung as a set or separately

Having seen these my daughter wants me to paint her some coasters for her work colleagues for Xmas, along with a pretty china mug each with a selectinof Thorntons delux chocs in cellophane.....shes sorted lol.  I thought it was a lovely idea, just got to see how she wants each one personalised :)

I will be painting more tomorrow and Sunday ...can't wait as it feels like I haven't painted in such a very long time xx
