My Weekend

Gosh there's so much that happened this weekend I dont quite know where to start. Okay, on friday, my mum and I went out a bought a nintendo wii, and its great fun lol! We also wanted the wii fit board, but they were out of stock in argos, and today I've checked every website I can think of, and EVERYWHERE is out of stock. How crazy is that! Now on saturday myself, my mum, dad, my aunt, uncle, and cousins, (from america) went out for the day together. We went to a place called Claughton, to a pub there called the Fenwick Arms. If anyone has watched Gordon Ramsey's kitchen nightmares, where he goes to sort out failing pubs and restuarants, well the Fenwick Arms was one of those. I'd say it was a fairly good meal, although they do need to change the menu a bit, not everyone likes salmon etc. I had a cheese baguette which was yummy but I only managed to eat half of it lol! The others had fish and chips or Roast beef and yorkshire puds. I'm telling you those puds are the biggest I have ever seen! According to Gordon Ramsey they're the best he's ever had. I cant vouch for that as i didnt have them but they looked good. Then we got to meet and have a looooonnnggg chat with the owner, and head chef, Brian Rey, and my aunt and uncle had a photo taken with him. He also gave us a magazine with an article about him in it, his campaign for "real gravy" which was all over the menu's lol! Here's the magazine, and a napkin ring thing which i brought home. They also have a website at

Then we went into Skipton, where the market was on, which was pretty good, and I found a gorgeous Craft shop called The Stamp man, I could have spent hours in there but i wasn't allowed! I manged to limit myself and just buy a stamp and some peel-offs. I haven't got a photo of the peel-offs to post here, but they were of funny geisha's and chinese dragons. I'll take one soon I promise or i'll make a card with them. I also found out they have a website so even better! Anyway the stamp I bought is lovely its of a woman, I think its called Cassandra. Here it is:

I also bought a craft mag from a newsagents because it had a beautiful flower fairy stamp with it. I definitely recommend that you look out for it and buy it, i cant wait to use the stamp, and there are some fantastic cards in it.

I also bought a necklace and a pair of earrings from a charity shop, you gotta love charity shops for random finds. And again here are more photo's lol!

Suzie's Blog

Suzie is giving away some blog candy at
Isn't she a lovely person!



I am so tired this morning lol! Last night at work was pretty much bedlam, the roof in the stock room has about 8 leaks in it, so the other girl that I work with, and myself were run ragged having to keep emptying the buckets underneath. Not a nice job I can tell you. That, on top of putting out stock, about 10 boxes of crisps, and filling up the beer fridge, and serving customers too. Life's great eh?

On a good point I only have 4 more avon orders to deliver whooop!

Anyway here's a card I made a little while ago :)

Rainy Day

Just a quick update, I'm making myself keep this blog going. Its not that I dont want to, I just seem to forget to post lol!

The weather is awful lately, or weird, as in rain then sun then rain again! Today it keeps raining for a few minutes then stopping again, and I need to go out, I'm hoping to dodge these showers lol!

The being an Avon rep is going okay, I've sorted out (touch wood) the problems I've been having, and I've got a new area manager who seems better than the last one.
This campaign I've made £63...something, I know it doesnt seem that great but I'm just starting out and I hope to build on that :)

I haven't made any cards since the other day, i want to, but i need to get all the Avon orders out, and collect the money in. Ah well I will make time eventually.

Ismaki Challenge

So over the past few weeks I've been searching the web and finding loads of wonderful craft blogs, which are really inspiring for me, and have helped me to get my oomph back.

I've even created my very first challenge card, which was a sketch off Ismaki,

i'm not sure if I like the card I made or not, its definitely different from what I usually make, well whatever here it is.
