Good evening crafters! Card No. 2 made without a Cuttlebug. I'm getting the hang of this! I thought I was colouring this poinsettia with a red Tombo pen. Looks can be deceiving, as you can see. But I liked it in this colour so carried on. The stamp is an old PSX one - an old one of Sharon's - since she has given up crafting. So Kim Reygate - how many Christmas cards have you made now?
I have been out to a Medieaval 'Herald of Spring' day at Bourne Hall in Ewell, Surrey. There were craft stalls, local historians, Morris dancers, a brass band, a falconry exhibition, flower arrangements for sale and countless other things. I looked in the local museum too and was surprised to see a glass cabinet containing many things which I still own! I suddenly felt very old. There were Beatles L.P.s and a little game called Tell Me, which I played with my siblings as a youngster.
I may be looking after a little dog for three weeks. Stanley. His owner died yesterday and he is to be shipped out to the USA. We are going to meet him tonight and to see if he and my Taffy get on. What with dog walking, dog sitting and my new job about to start - I'll wish I was retired again.
I am a dog lover and a crafter and took early retirement after a thirty year career. I now work part time driving school children to and from a school in Surrey. I have been married to my husband Mike for twenty years and we currently live near Epsom in Surrey. I pass my days walking dogs in a voluntary capacity for The Cinnamon Trust, making greeting cards, meeting friends and socialising.
