it was for one of the girlies at work to send to a friend.
made with Sweetwater paper that’s been hoarded for a very long time, bright orange and green bazzil cardstock, nesties and the “Cheers to You” SU set – oh, and of course coloured in with COPICs and with a bit of stickles on the foam bit of the beer.
I also made a whole lot of wee shopping bags with my Cricut, which I put some of the soap that was ready to be used in, and gave each of the girls at work one. Disappointingly, they were supposed to actually use it, but have been hoarding it. I mentioned on Friday, that they actually did need to use it and give me feedback, so fingers crossed on Monday that will have happened. I love my soap, but I need to know what other people think of it too.
I’ve done no crafting this weekend, but not unsurprisingly, have made two further batches of soap. Playing around with silk in them and also clay. They smell devine, and are women’s shaving soap. Hopefully, they will turn out well.
It’s been really nice to give the crafting a rest, I was beginning to feel that I was churning out just the same card in different colours, and I feel that some inspiration is beginning to form in my again. I love to say that I needed new stamps, but in reality I have so much virgin rubber, that is not really an excuse I can use…..my mojo’s been off round the world!
Toodles and I went on a lovely bike ride this afternoon. We had to drag Guy along, as the bikes don’t fit in my car, so he drove down with us to the local Countrypark at Hayesden, and we did several circuits of the lake. It was beautifully sunny, and such a precious time together. We then sat on a bench in the play area and scoffed Mr Whippy with flakes – yum.
This was the first time that we’ve managed to get out for more than a quick ride, which is quite disgusting considering I got the bike just before Christmas – and just goes to show just how busy we are as a family (it’s a modern day sickness having no time for quality family bits and bobs).
