There was a craft event in Leigh, today. As its practically on my doorstop, I thought it would have been rude not to go and have a look. And besides, my friends were popping along too. So if anything, I knew I'd enjoy the natter.
I bought some gorgeous little bits and pieces including kraft cardstock (which you can't see). Ive found a beautiful little craft stall called The Hobby House, too. It was heavenly.
The day went far too fast and so did my spending money. **sniff sniff**
But, I was in my own sweet little element, though. After 6 months of being a "bloated bertha" since lapsing on my diet last year, this weeks gluten and carb free shenanigans has afforded me back into my jeans. I'm that sensitive to carbs that by just cutting them out, I have a significant weight loss in my first week. The thing is, the next few weeks will be a tad tough. I keep saying over and over "Let's do this thing". Here's hoping......
Here is my lovely friend Angie and Julies hubby, Joe. Conveniently, Julie was taking the picture and Joanne (our other friend) was lost in a sea of stamps at Little Claire's. I bumped into lots of freinds and co-demonstrators including my lovely freind Marie **smooches**
My feet were on fire after having a good old rummage and before long, we were at the local supermarket cafe enjoying a well deserved coffee and a bite to eat. I love my new crafty friends; they're just the right age group who take life easy with a sprinkling of laughter.
When I got home it was a lovely, crisp evening. Mark and I have been walking the dog on extended journeys so we wrapped up and took him for a gorgeously long walk. I loved the golden hour light and took this picture. I don't even think I like the subject but I love the light on the water. I wish I could live in this colour light forever.
I was hoping to get creative after dinner tonight (with all my lovely new pretties) but I've a mountain of work to finish off. I hope to squeeze in some creativity tomorrow although by the looks of things, I could be in for the long haul on the computer. That's because I've recently had 5 Diamond Jubilee Cards been approved to go on sale (Internationally) to a potential 90 million customers. I'm not sure if I can say whom its with just yet but lets just say that this special commission is an honour and a bit flipping fantastic.
**claps hands with glee**
Rightio, gotta fly. I've got Eddy the ginger caped warrior needing a stroll around the garden before bed time.
