Good morning, my friends. I’m writing this at ridiculous o’clock because I woke up and thought it wasn’t worth going back to sleep… I reckon the plot has been well and truly lost here on the North wales coastline!!

However… my workdesk this morning… in all its messy glory…

Thought it best, really, to alter the angle yet again. Here you see a satisfactorily bulging ice cream box. Filled almost to completion with Mrs D’s cards. Only 8 more to go and I have completed the 90 she thinks she needs. The right shove pile is there at the front with the plastic box of dies used and STILL not put away. A piece of paper with an extra name to add to the harvest meal list for Sunday – I think that makes 60 we are cooking for – a good number. There’s the usual clutter of inks, brushes, glue, double sided tape, scissors, an image propped against the wall which I can’t decide yet (after two weeks) whether I will use or throw, a pile of pergamano magazines, an album I really want to finish but never get around to, a virginally empty cutting mat (apart from the folded paper destined for the waste bin). Further back are my glitter glues and perfect pearls, trays of peel offs,  a plastic RUB of cards for the hotel, gift boxes and handbags for a commission, and the left shove pile (which has been sorted and then re-filled!).

Peering into the ice cream box is a most satisfactory exercise now! here’s a few examples…

Still using up Mrs D’s ready cut images! Must admit I love that stamped sentiment.

Fancied a bit of a change, so cut out that lovely new die I found at the show, then thought… what to put behind it? I know, I know – the wrong way around… but then, this is me we are dealing with here, not you sensible, logical good folk…

When I started this exercise I stamped a whole heap of the specially bought image Mrs D had chosen. This is the last one to be used. You see it peeking in the back of the card.

So, that’s me this week folks. Still busy, looking forward to my birthday next week, eagerly anticipating the crop a week on Saturday and thinking through what to offer as lunch, hoping to finish the last of these cards today, and working out if I really need 8lbs weight of beef to feed 48 of the 60 people on Sunday!!!

Take care my friends. God bless you.

    Sorry I’m late visiting. OK, I have to admit; the size of the ice cream container is really the only item that has captured my attention on your desk. Might be because I haven’t had ice cream in weeks, might be because it’s back to mid-80’s and humid here; either way, I’ll have to come back and peek after I’ve had some ice cream… Thanks for stopping by-I don’t think I knew you were a musician too! Have a great week. -K #30

    Hi Margaret, so many lovely cards, I love the black and white, but you know I would! I’m sure I shall be fine for the crop- if I get tired I can always have a nap in the car on the way down! Looking forward to it, so definitely will be there. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #2 XxX

    Hi Margaret. I think it’s a good idea to die cut and stamp your images before starting making the cards it’s just that I can’t always make my mind up with the Christmas cards how I want them to look. I must be brave and stick to one design then I might get them all done quicker! Thanks for the visit to mine and have a great crafty woyww, Angela x17x

    Hi Margaret, good luck for the cooking for Sunday; catering for the crop will seem a doddle in comparison. I am amazed at how many cards you have managed to make in such a short time. They are fabulous and I know Chris will appreciate your efforts. Looking forward to the crop! Sarah #18

    8lbs of beef!!! Margaret, I do not know how you fit all you do into a day. Bless you, what a super friend you are to Chris – making all those cards for her. Hope she is recovering by the way. Well, good luck with the Harvest supper. God Bless Neet 7 xx

    Lol, we really are cut out of the same mound because I never do things the correct way around either!! You are a start doing all those cards for Mrs D….I read that she’s going to try and make it to the Crop, it’ll be amazing to see her but hope she doesn’t over do things. Hugs LLJ 8 xxx
