Its been a busy one this week!
The chickens have been on fine form producing between 3 and 4 eggs per day – ive even had to write the date on them so we use them in order theyre coming in that fast! (the 3 at the back on the bottom are wood – dont worry it didnt hurt the chickens as they originally came with the box but are now relegated to the cupboard!) DH used them (the real ones!) for scrambled eggs last night and since i was out teaching a class i didnt even get to try them! lol The girls are settling in really well, their feathers are coming back in and they now cluck like mad when you approach them! 🙂
I took part in a couple of the sketch challenges this week, first up being the Papertrake Weekly sketch… I love how it looks like a little envelope on a card, such a cute idea. Thanks girls xxx
Next up was Passion for Papertrey – the task this time was to use a minimum of 2 flowers. Instead of paper flowers i stamped the background with the flower from the Anniversary set in Raspberry Fizz, combining it with the smaller flower from the same set in Aqua Mist.(sorry about the blury pic – it was early hours of this morning when i took the pic!)
The next one was the Sketch and Stash Challenge Blog and the Cuttlebug challenge combined …..This one has special meaning as most of you know we lost my dad to cancer so i stamped the little ties around the elephants trunks to show i will never forget. Thank you to the girls on both blogs for the inspiration xxx
I also picked up some bargains this week! How cute are these, a soap dispenser and soap dish originally from Heathcote & Ivory. I found them in a local Scope charity shop for ?1 each! They will fit in perfectly when we manage to get the bathroom sorted – imagine white wood panneling and lots of shabby chic touches! yum!!
Like most scrappers too i struggle for storage and these buttons from Papertrey have been in jars, bowls, boxes……nothing was easy to use and the all needed emptying out to find the perfect ones. Not any more!! Look at these fab little clear boxes – set of 4 for ?1 from the Poundstore! I bought 3 sets so plenty of storage and the little (very colourful) basket was 50p from Scope 🙂
