Today I have.... new stash!!! How very exciting!  The postman arrived yesterday morning with this lovely treat for me:
 lots of goodies which I won in a giveaway through cardmaking and papercraft.  There's a purple display/storage folder, a set of stamps, some papers, some card blanks, a box full of decorative edge scissors, various peel-offs and a book.  Not sure who was the most excited by it all, me or baby bug number 1.  Now I just need to get a few minutes to start making stuff.  Nothing has been made since last week I am ashamed to say, but I have just about finalised the branding for my various card ranges so hopefully I'll be back on track with glueing and sticking very soon.  And there's the small matter of all my sisters wedding stationery that I really should be making a start on too.....

However, an excuse for my lack of making stuff, is that the lovely weather has inspired us to head off out into the garden once more, where spring is certainly springing, the daffs are opening at quite a pace now and we have finally refilled the dead twiggy looking hanging baskets with some violas (one of my absolute favourites)

We've sown some carrot seeds, cosmos and sunflowers (we are hoping that the resident shed-mouse doesn't sneak into the greenhouse and eat them all again this year)

We have even spotted ladybirds and bumble bees (which is what baby bug 1 is looking at below)

Time to have a peek at more desks now.


  1. Good to see that spring reaches you too. It inspires me and strange...?! All the cards coloured green and yellow.
