Such difficult decisions!

I've spent the morning drawing up lists of things to order... but why is it so difficult to decide what to get... everything is just so lovely! should I go for some restocks of old favourites ... or pick up some new lines... and then again there's that new company to order from and a minimum order level to meet.... perhaps if I add up the figures again... no still the same amount to spend....

... but it's all worth it once I make the decision and get a box of goodies arrive... alright so they are for my customers and not for me.. but it's lovely just the same :-)... and perhaps I should just have one or two of those.. I mean they'll come in useful at my demo right..?

Just come back from a nice walk with hubby(Pete) and the dog (Molly)... must remember to take my digi camera and get some shots of Molly jumping through the long grass... it's taller than she is and she leaps about like a gazelle... so funny!

I haven't told you all about Molly yet - she's a cross between a boxer and a staffordshire bull terrier and is 22 months old and we got her from a rescue centre when she was just 3 months... and so far 18 months of weekly dog training hasn't quite got her under control yet... she's a bit of a rebel to say the least!

Here is a piccie I took of her this morning.. looking like butter wouldn't melt as usual!

Well better get back to my website.. I'm a bit behind with loading up the new deliveries for this week.. keep getting distracted!!

it's so nice to get creative...

I actually sat last night and made an ATC box using my bind it all... I used acrylic paint to paint all the box sides, then stamped it with retro flowers and handpainted over the design using my cosmic shimmer watercolours... and loved it!... it's been such a long time since I've made something just on the spur of the moment because I was so inspired to be creative!.. it was a project from the craft stamper....

Well... time I got starting with this blogging thing...

... I mean it seems everyone and their dog seems to have their own blog now.. Perhaps I should be setting one up for Molly..? Welcome to my blog. I'll try not to bore you... just a few ramblings of ideas and progress and lots of complaints that I've got no time to do things I want to do probably.... so is it such a good idea that I start this blog afterall?

Let start with what I'm up to this week... it's been a busy one what with crafting club on Monday, RHS on Tuesday, Massage (make that torture session) on Wednesday, Dog training on Thursday, stall on Friday and workshop on Saturday... phew no wonder I'm flagging!

Treated myself to a quick play on the cuttlebug with the new build a flower... I think that it's going to become a firm favourite!... played around with whether it's better to cut first or second... definitely cut first it's much easier to line up the embossing that the die to cut!

I might just have to have another play over the weekend - purely business of course, I mean if I'm not well practices how can I demonstrate it to everyone!

Well had a delivery of goodies today... so I'd better stop typing and start pricing up before I get too far behind.. as usual!
