Easy like sunday morning..

Good morning folks,

Only a very quick note this morning to say hi as I'm going swimming in a moment! Yes that's right, exercise on a Sunday! eek!

I hope to be back later on with photos of my recent pot plant decorations, felt embelishments, and the all new Mrs. Cloud :)

Bloggy blog

Sorry, I couldn't think of a very interesting title!

Had a good-ish day at work today...good because we had a good laugh and it was nice to start the week on a Tuesday...ish because I feel a bit as though I have reached a natural end with my day job. It's exciting times for me at the moment though, especially with PeggyCrafts, and also because I am soon to be starting some voluntary work in a primary school which I'm really looking forward to. So, plenty of things for me to look forward to!!

Nipped into town after work today with the main aim of getting my new specs adjusted. But I accidentally found myself going into a fabric shop! I just don't know how it happened!! :-) Only spent a tiny little bit though, and bought a few new sheets of felt!

Really looking forward to Friday next week when my site will be open to the public :) I'd better go now and get to work on some of the Pot Plant Decorations I'm going to be Mrs. Bee (below!)

Have a super bank holiday everyone :)

Website launch date!!!

Yey! I've decided on a date to officially launch which is (drum roll...) 5th September!! Hoorah!

I decided to bring it forward from my original date because I find that I work better and quicker when I'm under some time pressure, so the five weeks I had given myself to spare were doing me no favours. So now I have just over two weeks to go and I am going to pack in the sewing!!

I hope as many of you as possible will come and visit my new site on 5th September. :)

Lots of love

Helen xx

Snip snip

I've been sooo busy cutting things out recently, I really think I might have given myself an RSI!

It's quite good fun actually, I just watch the TV at the same time (occasionally have to throw some away if a good bit came on and I cut the wrong way)

I've got a craft fair in mid October which seems to be coming round really fast, so I'm making some advanced preparations.

I have to admit though that I am WELL behind on my robot swap. I have got some cool ideas but I need to get on with getting them onto paper!

Scary Film :(

I've decided to do some very late night posting as the boys are watching a VERY scary film on tv ... it's called the Grudge... if you've ever seen it, you will know how scary it is too!! :( So I am keeping my eyes firmly on my nice bright computer screen! Phew!

Anyhoo, had a very busy day at work today so I am very glad it's the weekend. :) And plus, my Mum is coming to stay!! Woohoo!

Craft-wise, everything is going really well - spent a lot of time snipping out new shapes of felt yesterday so I'm all ready for doing plenty of sewing over the weekend. Website launch date is going to be September 26th...yes put it in your diary people...only 5 weeks to go!! :) So this week apart from sewing I've been deciding on the 6 categories to go on

Mrs. Flowers
Craft & Scrapbooking Supplies
Felty Greetings
Keyrings, Magnets & Brooches
Make your own kits (I'm especially excited about this one!!)
Tags & gift-wrap thingies

YEY! I'm sooo excited!!

Will put piccies up over the weekend :))))

I had a very stressful time this morning trying to get to a craft fair / general market type place in the city centre. I found it ok (thanks to Rick's trusty sat-nav) but when I got there, it was £3 to park. But oh poo! I only had £1.50 with me, and as it was in the middle of nowhere, I had no idea how to get to a cash point! :( I thought about parking on a nearby street, but there was some slightly scary-looking 'travelling folk' nearby and I was too worried about leaving Flo.

Anyhoo, in crafty news, everything is going nicely to plan for my website launch next month. I've been busy sewing, sticking, purchasing things from hobbycraft and organising my website. Not long to go now - I'm aiming for 1st October. :)

Well I'm just about over this morning's chaos now so I'm going to have a cup of tea and get on with making some more felty goodness.

Have a lovely day everyone

Mrs. Flower Keyrings

I've been working on some Mrs. Flower keyrings recently..I'm really pleased with how they have turned out. :) They are so smily, I find myself smiling back at them like some kind of crazy woman!

Mrs. Flowers are everywhere

I'm having a really relaxing day today which is much needed after a busy week at work and a late night yesterday - went to a wedding of an old friend which was lovely and the bride and groom looked very happy. :) ahhh.

I've also been informed by Claire that I'm going to be in a robot swap!! Yey! I've never done a crafty swap before and I didn't know how to go about joining one, but Claire has become one of my favourite crafters so as I was busy checking out new creations on her blog, I found out how to sign up - yey! I'm not too sure how my robot design will turn out yet, but I'm very excited!

Meanwhile, Mrs. Flowers have been getting up to all kinds. I've been very excited to learn about a new shop which is opening soon who will be stocking my Mrs. Flowers - and shortly they will be available to buy on my very own website which is coming along nicely!!
