Birthday Boy

So today we have a dinner inspired by my son's favourite things..Water melon, Lamb and mint sauce and chocolate !... oh and i forgot beer (in moderation!!)

I get weekly quotes from and today is my son's birthday and this was this weeks quote ans it seemed so poignant as I always find myself reflecting on how precious a gift he was and is....

valentines day

I've had a lovely day..have just got back after a nice meal in town....yummy. A funny old week is over and I felt as if my head was shed yesterday so just need to craft and get a sense of myself back! I re organised the craft room last week and have some more storage it was certainly easier to create today with everything on hand..and i put it all back again ...well the baskets were neatly beckoning tidy up after yourself Carol!!!

magnolia challenge

I'm only just in time to post this ...I rustled her up today and enjoyed every minute...I think I've used the sketch but with slightly different elements My background is an embossed vellum and the circle is embossed with cuttlebug floral fantasy and then inked and sparkley embossed, Tilda is sat on a die cut branch mounted on a scalloped oval (from my nestabilites) with a sentimental thankful for friendship stamp as background, finished with some basic grey ribbon and a tiny brown button flower trimmed with tiny red ric rack.... loved making this, so glad to have manged to get it in to the challenge as well...
