Yes, I'm here

Hi all,
Wow, has it really been three weeks since I posted on here?  I'm really not sure where the time has gone.  Between doing supply teaching and sorting out the clubs in the community room, I haven't had time to craft.  It was my birthday last Friday, and the girls gave me a lovely handbag (they know me well!) and then took me to the local pub for a meal, which was fab.
Over at Incy Wincy, we have a sketch for you.  I have used an image by MilkCoffee and went for an unusual colour scheme, but I think it works.
I'm working for the next three days, so may not post until Friday.
See you later.

Button it!

Hi all,
Daisy had a school visit yesterday to the Centre for Life in Newcastle.  It is a fab hands on museum for children.  She kept talking about the dinosaur exhibition and they also had a workshop where they made their own felt.  I may have to try it with her here.
Over at Creative craft, it's our 4th blogaversary and our theme is anything goes.  I have made a blue button bunny.  I glued the buttons onto fabric and then used some sticks I found on a beach in Scotland when we were on holiday at the top and bottom.  In case you haven't already guessed, this is for Martha and I have also made a pink heart for Daisy.
See you later.

Cackle, cackle...

Hi all,
Well, the girls are at school and nursery, so I have a day of housework ahead of me.  How nice!
I am at least on time for this week's Incy Wincy post.  Our theme is Halloween, and I have made a treat bag topper, using an image called Witch Sign by one of our sponsors, Limited Runs.  I was going to colour the witch in blue for Martha, as that is her favourite colour, but forgot and went with the traditional purple and green.  I realise that this is very simple, but I haven't had an awful lot of time to spare.
See you later.

Hi all,

Well, this week has been very busy.  I had some work on Thursday at a school I had never taught at before. I had a lovely time, although the class were a bit 'lively', as you might say!  We went to a local show on Saturday, which had craft stalls, animal shows and a small fair.  The girls had a lovely time.
Now, I'm very late with this Incy Wincy card as there will be a new theme tomorrow, but I just looked at my blog and realised that I hadn't posted this.  Ooops and sorry to my teamies.  Our theme was sweets, and I took for my inspiration the foam ice cream sweets I used to have in a 10p mix up when I was younger.  The image is a precoloured oe by The Paper Shelter.
See you tomorrow.

Sweet teddy

Hi all,
The girls are in school and nursery, and so I am doing some crafting to try and keep on top of my DT work and preparation for the clubs I run.
Over at Creative Craft, we are sponsored by StampArt by Kathryne, and I am using a fantastic image by hers, called MERRY BERRY.  I have made a tag.  I have made a few Christmas cards and tags now, but the trouble is, I can't remember where I have put them.  Ooops!
See you later.

Say it with flowers

Hi all,
I hope you had a good weekend.  We went to a christening yesterday of the son of hubby's best friend. It was nice to meet up with people we hadn't seen in a while.
Over at Incy Wincy this week, our theme is to give thanks.  I have used an image from our sponsor, Delicious Doodles.
See you later.

A bit crabby

Hi all,
Well, another week has started.  They seem to be flying by at the moment.
Over at Incy wincy, we have a fantastic picture inspiration challenge for you.  I seem to be running out of time with everything at the moment, so have made a very quick and simple tag, using the sun from the picture to inspire the shape and colours.  The image is Happy Crabby by our sponsor, 2Cute Ink.
See you later.
