This week at work our office was relocated, which meant packing up everything and moving to another building just over the road! Our new office is quite nice and I am now sharing an office with some of my favourite people at work :)

We're also moving house tomorrow so I've spent most of my weekend packing, dusting, moving, shifting and tidying - and a lot of sneezing! Most of my things are in bags now so it's just a question of moving (our new flat is very close by so that's good!)

Congratulations to my friend Z who passed his medical finals this week - yey Z!

And in very happy news - my mum's coming over to visit today! Even better, we're going shopping!! Holiday on Saturday - only 6 days to go! Yippeee!

In crafty news, I've started building my new website which will be up and running in late summer. It's taking me a while to get used to the new programme, but I'm getting there. Meanwhile I've been creating a whole family of Mrs. Flowers ... they've been busy posing too...

Website Troubles

Evening all,

Grrrrrrrrr I'm having all kinds of website troubles this evening. As some of you may have noticed, has been offline for a while. I decided to switch to a new host, which is more creative and straight-forward to use. But now I'm having problems with moving my old domain over to re-use. The nice people at my old host sent me step-by-step instructions on how to do it, and I SWEAR I'm following them exactly, but I keep getting an error message! POO!
So have sent them another e-mail and hopefully I'll be up and running in no time!

I'm very excited for getting my new site underway. I'm going to have all my things organised into different sections, and it's going to be really easy to use as well as being extreeeemely pretty!

Freeeeeeeeeebie winner and weekend catch up

Hello folks,

Well I am very excited to announce the name of my first freebie winner... (drum roll please) it is...


I was flummoxed as to how to pick so I gave each comment a number and then the first footballer number which came on the tv was the winner! Hoorah for some random German football player! (Got to make the most of all the footy on tv)

Please can you send me your address, craftyjan, and I'll post your parcel out :)

I've been busy felting today, partly making the above pressie and partly starting to prepare for the craft fair in October. Yes it's ages away, but it's good to be ready! I might try to sign up for another one around the same time, as well. I haven't taken any pictures today, but I will do soon.

I have been sitting outside in the sun today as well - until it got too hot! Yes that's right, too hot! (I have very fair skin, you see). Rick and I went to collect our holiday tickets from the travel agents yesterday - only a week and 6 days til we go :-) I'm sooo excited. I'll put up LOTS of pics when I get back!!

Back to work tomorrow and it's going to be busy..have got my coffee supplies at the ready!

Hello everyone

Thanks for your kind comments and e-mails! I'm a little snowed under both at work and outside of work at the moment. Work (my actual day job) is seriously crazy - I have piles of paperwork to go through, training courses to go on, and an office move next week! But, we're all managing to stay sane (just) and have a laugh.

Don't forget to comment / e-mail this week as I'm going to be sending out my freebie prize at the weekend - to say thank you to everyone who's putting up with all my crafty chattering! (either online or in person...teehee)

Better get back to work..eek

So much to doooo

Hello everyone

I am finding that I keep thinking of more and more things I should be doing in the name of PeggyCrafts and it's hard trying to fit everything in! Tonight I'm going to be updating my blog, creating letterheaded paper, and hopefully doing some more sewing if I get the chance. I received some compliments on my homemade felt phone case today so I might make some more of those.

I've also learned that I have a stall at a craft fair in Greater Manchester in October so although it's a while away, I intend to start making things soon! :-)

I've got the day off work tomorrow, so I'm going to do some tidying, some crafting and some shopping!! Only two weeks til we go on holiday now :)))) yey! Need to pick up some suncream and some summery clothes. I forget if we've mentioned before, but we're going to Florida. Yey!

Oh yes and most importantly I am having a mini giveaway to celebrate posting 100 messages on the craft forum. Please leave a comment on my blog or on the forum by Friday and I'll send a celebration pressie out to a name drawn from the hat at the weekend. :-)
I don't have any new crafty pics so I'll put on this pic of some fireworks instead!

Just a short post tonight, it's past my bedtime already!

Have had a very busy weekend, but it's been really fun. We all went to stay at my mum's last night which was great - we had a lot of tasty food, watched the final of Britain's got Talent, and had a good laugh. :-) Also went to a very fun housewarming party on Friday, but have also fitted in some crafting today!

Mrs Flower III - for our friend Yvonne :-)

A case for my mum's new phone

Then my phone got jealous so I had to make another one ... tee hee

Sweet dreams everyone!! zzzzzzzzzzzzz
