Welcome to my blog By Neymes. If you ever need any inspiration pop over to her blog. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit!

So its been a gorgeous week of sunshine over here so far. Its been a joy walking the dog for a change lol. Long may it last. I have been crafting away, keeping my head down and trying to squeeze in the odd Christmas card. I really should join a Christmas design team, maybe make me produce them more!! My daughter's coffee business is extremely busy at the minute so I'm lending a helping hand in there too. You would all love the smells around this house, apple pie, chocolate, peppermint....the list goes on!
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

Christmas in September!!

Christmas alert, cover your eyes!!
I finally got to make some Christmas cards. Always dread starting them but once I get going there's no stopping me lol.
This is the first time I have used this globe die from Tattered Lace. Its a lovely die and makes a really nice card but the mechanism to get it to stand up is useless! I spent ages trying to get it sorted. My daughter eventually suggested putting a brace of card between the two flaps that were supposed to join together to hold it old. (they joined ok but the card would not stay upright). The brace has worked thank goodness.

Papers - from my stash, acetate, red card

Tattered Lace Greeting die

Its been a busy weekend for me. We started decorating our bedroom, new flooring, painting, wallpaper, new bedding, curtains and hopefully tomorrow a new sliding robe. Its been hard work, just me and hubby beavering away (we make a great team). But with this cold still hanging around I am totally wrecked come tea time lol. I don't need much rocking when I go to bed though ;)
I'll post a wee pick of the room when it's done. I have squeezed in a few card orders over the weekend as well, my order book is filling up for Christmas already so hopefully I will be able to post come Christmas related cards soon. But will need some inspiration from you bloggers, so I will be lurking soon.  Have a great week everyone and thanks for dropping by.

Still struggling to get rid of this cold which is probably more of a virus really as a few people in my area have been complaining of the same symptoms (tiredness, sickness etc etc) but I am definitely getting better. The weather picked up on Wednesday and we had lunch and coffee in the back garden which was LOVELY! But Thursday turned out wet, windy and cold! Really peeved off with the summer we have had or haven't had! Off out tomorrow with hubby, not sure where, again depends on the flipping weather lol. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

I treated myself to the tattered lace tree die a few weeks ago and it arrived last week so had to use it. I cut it out in white and coloured it with promarkers. Its a big die and I just love it.
I am dosed with the cold at the minute and hubby is too but my daughter's friend from Germany is still having fun lol. They have been heading out each day to see the local sights and the weather has been warm and dry thankfully with the odd shower now and then.

Another drab day here! Schools will be back in a few weeks and we are still waiting on summer starting here! We are sprucing up the bathrooms so I suppose its perfect weather lol. The days are just flying in, is that a sign I'm getting old? I can't seem to find enough hours in the day to do what I need to do and run out of steam a lot quicker! Hope your days are going well for you and thanks for dropping by.

 It was 18 degrees here today but there was a wind blowing that would cut you in two!! So much for summer! I am longing for nice long sunny days but it ain't going to happen now me thinks. The leaves are beginning to gather in the back garden! My grandsons are away for a week to the caravan so will miss their visits this week but maybe it will motivate me to do some much needed clearing out!
Have a good week whatever you are up to.
