Friday morning is baking morning...so I have decided!
Yesterday morning, I got ready all of my baking ingredients at one end of the kitchen and, not only that, at the other end , waiting patiently, were the ingredients for our tea... Spaghetti Bolognese. Organised or what?! I felt very pleased with myself.
Up early at 9am and raring to go..and guess what happened...the power went off!
I had completely forgotten (yes, we'd had warning a week ago!) that they were doing essential electrical maintenance work until 1pm.
Thankfully, nothing was in the oven at this point and so being the pretty flexible person that I am (!), I toddled off to ...'you know where'...to do 'you know what'...well actually if you do know what, then you know more than me.... as I hadn't a clue at that point! ;-)
I'd made a promise to do 20 minutes crafting a day, at Fi's blog over at Marmalade Rose.
I eyed up the buttons (I love buttons!) in front of me..ah I know!
I only made four cards...I'll put them in my shop later... nice 'n cheap...!
I doubt I'll need one...Mr S would only give his back to me to reuse the buttons anyway!! LOL!
Do you know...these buttons are the best I've come across for crafting.
This particular bag are reds, blacks and greys but in this range there are some other bags with fab colour combinations.
Bag - 'O - Buttons 'Foof a La'
I first bought mine at Papermaze , last year..and they still stock them as I have since been back for more.
(They have 20% off right now!)
After that ...and as it was still not one o' clock (It was only 9.30...LOL!) I made up two Sal's Snippets' Valentine scrap packs...
12 cotton fabric squares, lovely red designs, approx 5 ins by 5 ins
two little pieces of vintage embroidery;
some pieces of ribbon, ric rac and lace ;
4 chipboard letters 'LOVE' ;
8 buttons ;
some red and black embroidery thread
Nice 'n cheap too..in my shop here :
Today, we went to Totnes but I forgot my camera!
I came back empty handed apart from some very lovely scrapbook paper which will hopefully feature here on Monday..along with those winners of my giveaway!
