Rain, Rainbows and a Challenge Winner.
A mixed week both on the weather front and the creating. I have decided to enter the Craft Forum summer show in the section: Over the Rainbow sponsored by Jane from Just Soaps.
The CF hold these shows at least twice a year but this is the first time I have been brave enough to enter, I do sponsor a section this time: Gardens of Delight. Open for exhibits until 31st August at which time the curtains will close and then the voting commences
Rainbow Butterfly Personalised Plaque
I love the cheeky rainbow winged fairy can just imagine her/him zooming around the garden causing mischief all day and think this one could be the culprit for missing garden tools that you know you have only just put down but not where you left them.
I entered a blog challenge in July with Terrys Fabric's submitting 2 cushion covers shown previously on my blog. Forgot all about it, as you do, then got a wonderful email to say I had won, first and 7th placings, more details here: Terrys Fabric's
Have done a bit more creating for Christmas Fairs, oh no I have gone and said it now the dreaded 'C' word this means in a blink of an eye the goose will be fat, decorations up and the day upon us. My plan had been to do Christmas in July but think this may creep into September. Trying to be super organised this year, okay get up off the floor not that funny! and do Birthday cards and gifts well in advance of the due date along with yes you heard it here 'Christmas Gifts'
For inspiration in the card making front take a look at Apple Crafts Card Gallery and if in Lincolnshire pop along to Kim's shop in Chapel St Leonards a haven of creating goodies and great customer service. I know I am biased as Kim is such a dear friend but she truly makes wonderful cards and she has worked so hard at her shop that she deserves all the praise and promotion I can give her.
Off to add to my 'To Do' lists and plan for next weeks projects.
