Teacher's pressies

It's that time again - last day of school tomorrow, last day of Infants. Sian has really loved her Teacher this year and wanted to give her something really special. A few weeks ago we went into town and she chose lots of little bits - lip balm, bath bomb, bubble bath, mini box of Thornton's choccies etc and decided that I needed to make something pink and sparkly to put them in. Hope she likes them as the Treasure boxes and cards take absolutely hours to stamp, cut out, glitter (in 5 colours) and layer - but they're worth it.

Sian then decided that I needed to make a blue version for her Teaching Assistant.

I've been tagged by Gallifrey to list 7 weird facts about myself, so here goes...

1. I'm absolutely terrified of frogs. Real ones, cartoon one, Kermit - they're all the same to me. Evil!

2. I'm obsessive about keeping my craft room tidy. I just can't seem to do anything in there when it's messy.

3. My favourite colour is blue but it's probably the colour I find hardest to use when I'm scrapbooking

4. I'm totally obsessed with Nick Heyward (and have been since I was about 8 or 9 years old)

5. I embroidered my own wedding dress. It took over 9 months of working at least 2 hours per week night and 4 hours a day at the weekend.

6. I've been a bookworm since I was a little girl and it seems that my DD is taking after me in that respect

7. As a child I was so skinny that my mum had to alter all of my clothes so they fittd, particularly at the shoulders, Don't know what's happened but I've certainly made up or it now LOL

I tag Sally and Diz :)

What do you get....

.... if you cross 85 rubber stamps with a microwave?
Answer - a lot more storage space!

The simple pleasures....

During a brief sunny spell earlier in the week Sian took full advantage and played in the garden. Isn't it nice to know that no matter how many expensive toys she has, she still gets the most pleasure from the simple things in life.

DH was out with the camera on Monday and managed to watch a dragonfly hatching. It must have bene a pretty amazing sight to see something so big emerging from something so small.

Puddy Tats

I've been messing in the garden tonight (during the half hour of sunshine we had!) and managed to get some pics of the cats. Cleo is the Tortoiseshell and she's 19, Turvey is a baby - she's 16 :)
