It's been ...

... busy since my last post and I'm failing on this Monday morning, weekly posting - oops!

I've still been working on the kitchen deep clean.  It's nearly done!  I've got the light fittings, window and finally the floor, left to clean. There's labels to write for the new spice jars and moving the spices into them.  That's all - lol!  Was hoping to have it finished by today but it's not happened.  Best laid plans and all that but sometimes other things in life ... and crafting, get in the way.  

Inbetween doing the kitchen I've had a day with friends at Greta's, a visit to the doc for my flu jab, a workshop morning, exercise class, celebrated (if that's the right word) our 29th wedding anniversary and had a rare visit from my brother.  Last time was over 2 years ago not long after Dad died, although we have seen one another since then ... I visited him ... and visits from both sons and the littlies ;)  I've also done something that I've not done since Mum passed away and that's do a 'big' shop physically instead of online!  Won't be happening again in a hurry but the 'top up' ones will continue. 

I've yet to photograph all 'makings' from Greta's.  We didn't make one card but we each made a bracelet, a little wreath and some button canvases.  There were also candles decorated but I didn't do one of them.

Craftwork Cards (Create & Craft members free gift)
Thursday's workshop card was a Halloween one but I don't 'do' Halloween however ... eldest grandson is a Halloween baby (this is what I did for his 18th).  He's 23 years old this year ... this is going to be his card.  I love it :D

Stampin' Up Googly Ghouls (retired), Lovely as a Tree and Papermania greeting stamp.  Inks used Distress, Memento and StazOn, 

How to keep the kids quiet and to stop them walking on walls where there's a 6 foot drop if a foot slips!

Another week gone - or, in this case, nearly 2.  Hopefully by next week I can call my kitchen done and will have moved on to the next room reclaim .....

Thanks for dropping by .....
