is that I love them very very much.
Although, perhaps 3 years ago, I would have never have said that.
Nuh uh. I used to think stamps were for nerds, geeks and nerdy-geeksters.
I am reborn.
Clear stamps store so neatly and smell absolutely delicious. Ive been snorting Banana Frog stamps for a few days now and Im on a lily pad of loveliness. Here is my first of what Im sure will be many projects using their lush stamps.
And because Bev accidentally packed a duplicate set of stamps in my DT box, she gave me per-mish to give this set of Matryoshka Dolls away for one lucky commenter - worth £10.99!
The winner of my mini canvas from last week was picked at random by the dog. I made him wait in front of the screen and bark when he liked the look of one you hot mommas (I think he wanted to chew you up, more likely). No really, I used a generator to pick a number and the number was: 6, who happens to be Anne. Well done, chick a lick a loo.
What else?.......hmmm, our boiler has started to misbehave and is not heating the water properly. We have all had to take freezing cold showers/washes for 2 stinky days and its not fun on Ellie, who is a little slip of a thing - she shivers at the sight of a 1 degree drop in temperature on a hot day, let alone a cold day. Now with Mark being out of work this was bound to happen (ie expensive and at a time when the cash flow is pretty weak.) That was until we learned that finally his enhanced CRB was finalised today (its only taken since 17th December) which means he can start work in his job that was promised to him on the 15th December and thankfully they kept the post open just for him! So now we can actually afford to call out the Gas bandits and have hot water again. I honestly will make a conscious effort to be grateful for the luxury of hot water again instead of taking it for granted. The amount of times I forget to be grateful for food, shelter, love and happiness is amounting to be pretty bad, so tonight I am raising my arms to the heavens to say a great big thank you to whoever is running the whole god damn show on this often crummy planet.
Time to have another swatch sample from my new CD which, for some reason, sold like wildfire today - thank you! This collection has everything to make the perfect tea party including bunting, cake flags, invites etc. This is a small sample of one collection and there are three collections like it in other colours too including plum with lime and raspberry with lime. Do look at the last two blog posts for other sample swatches!
Don't forget to add your pretty lil name in my comments box below to be in with a chance of winning a pack of cute Russian dolly stamps.
