Summer Stories


What a beautiful day - Summer is here.
And it is not good for blogging :-(.

It is such a shock to the system to have a full day of warmth and no rain. DS kept pointing at the sky yesterday and saying - it's blue, it's not raining, it's sunny - poor lad - they just can't believe it.

Spent the day in Ballinderreen at the Community Games County finals. DD got through the heats and didn't get any further than the semi finals. She is only six and she was competing in under-8's. So very proud of her - she is already planning for next year. She wanted to know when we could go to the under-8 Olympics in China :-).

So back to the crafting. Had quite a few orders over the last few weeks. So over the next few days will be putting some of them up for you to see.

This is from the new Crafters Companion Summer Stories CD.

Sunday again!!!

Another week gone - Monday again tomorrow. But it is a study & assignment free week - my course is finished. So more time for other things - including crafting.
Was in Siopa Bui today - there was a demo day for the new Penny Black stamps and the new Sizzix Hello Kitty dies - so many tempting goodies. Not good for the wallet but very good for the crafty stash!!!
Have to start getting more done and showing more pics -my May resolution.

Have to make another 20 wedding invites - sis needs more.

Then it will be time for new crafty projects - I hope.

Been over on Jean's blog and she has some lovely blog candy. Check it out - there is lots of fabby cards there. Lots to inspire you.

See ye soon

May Already

Can you believe it is May already - where is our Summer.

Also can't believe my course finished on Wednesday. Two short assignments to do and I'm finished. Been really busy so not getting to spend time online like I used to.

Had to do this poster with one of the girls from my class last week. We had to do a poster to show how parents can get involved in our fictitious playschool.

Got to use my Cricut - it really comes into it's own when you do bigger sizes.
Used the Paper Dolls cart and the princess cart with Little Mermaid - can't remember the name just now.
