Sorry for the drought on my blog .. .. .. it has been super busy here. Lots of commissions and wedding work to complete .. .. and alongside the craftiness the London Kids are here for a few days.
It hasn't been all work though.
We have been having a great time. Far too many meals out (not that they have finished yet) and even a late night BBQ in the garden. Happy times.
Yesterday we spent the day in Matlock .. .. where you may remember last time I went I bought that huge reel of cotton ribbon.
Well this time I found this little beauty:
and I have been spending some time today hoovering out the cobwebs from the little shelves and starting to fill it up. But the slots are a little too deep so I am cutting rectangles of polystyrene for putting to the back of the shelves. What a mess polystyrene makes!! It is all over my kitchen worktop and floor LOL!! I wonder how factories manage to cut it without making so much mess.
I am going to have to label the side of all the inks next with the help of the download from here.
Currently my distress ink pads sit in a plastic box inside a drawer and I end up rummaging through all of them to try and find the colour I am looking for. So when I saw this storage unit straight away I thought of my ink pads.
I will let you have another peep once my mission is complete.
But for now I need to take the London Kids to see what my Mum has been up to since they last saw her. They go home tomorrow :-( but we have one last special meal together tonight .. .. to celebrate the rather large birthday I had earlier this year and their wedding anniversary tomorrow.
So crafting and my blog may be back to normal soon.
Enjoy your day.
Love Jules xx
