The best laid plans………

The best laid plans of mice and men! I think I’ve quoted that correctly but, if not, I’m sure you know what I mean!!!

I always think the days are longer than they actually are and that I can fit it more than I really can. That’s my way of saying I thought I was going to find time to blog every day but I spent the weekend enjoying myself instead.

Saturday I had a lazy day which, after a busy week, I thought I deserved, especially as I have things booked for the next 6 weekends. I did a minimum of the domestic goddess bit – a little gentle exercise hoovering the house and a bit of washing.  It was definitely a glasses off day which means I can pretend not to see any dust in the corners!

Sunday I went to the Calling Musical Festival on Clapham Common. Not quite Glastonbury but it was similar as we had a soggy afternoon – a wet umbrella’s/waterproof jacket sort of day – while watching Jack Johnson and Paloma Faith.  Fortunately the rain stopped ready for a beautiful evening. Topping the bill was the awesome Stevie Wonder who sung non stop for over 2 hours. Got to admire the stamina of the man – he didn’t even break out in a sweat.

Talking of stamina mine ran out after the very late night Sunday and blogging didn’t even come into my thoughts yesterday!  So – Friends to the rescue – everyone is filling in the gaps in my blogging technique.  So, starting tomorrow,  you’ll be hearing from the Design Team regularly too.

Some good news we’ve added another Christmas Workshop in Tadworth because the last one filled so quickly. This will be on November 15th. Don’t hang around though I know this will fill quickly.

We’re already playing with the new Christmas stamps ready for the next Create and Craft show on 17th July. (By “We” I mean the Design Team. Becki seems to be permanently glittering at the moment!I)  I’m swapping backwards and forwards between Christmas and other stamp sets making cards ready for Newbury this weekend. (I’ll be on the Art of Craft stand) and Summer Crafting in Doncaster on the 12th/13th July. Hopefully I’ll see some of you then.

Here are a couple of cards from the last Create and Craft show.



Thought I’d share this poignant card too. It was made by one of our customers Doreen Sympson, using the Commemorative set. Hope you like it as much as I do.

Bye for now. You’ll be hearing from LisaB tomorrow.
