Hello my friends. I confess I’m writing this on Tuesday afternoon as I am expecting guests to stay tonight… so won’t have time once they are all here.
So those of you of a nervous disposition should ignore this first photo – my desk!
Yes, I’m sorry, a neat and tidy desk. It’s the guests, you see, can’t have them seeing me in all my messy glory… But! That doesn’t mean I haven’t been hard at work – birthday cards, thank you cards, lots ready for the hotel – you name them, I’ve done them this week. Here’s just a few…
I’ve been having some fun doing a bit of stamping:-
Then I was having some fun with my Gemini machine and the computer printer. The larger cards are 6inches square – so quite large dies. The view on the Thank You card is of the Snowdon horseshoe in the wintertime. I don’t know how John did it, but it was taken back in the days of films and proper developing, and the sunset cast this fabulous pinky haze over the whole picture. Brilliant, and a very popular card!
I’m nearly done with the jumper I was knitting – just got to finish the second sleeve, neckline and sew it together. Then maybe I can take it away with me next week. I’m rapidly getting myself organised for Trip 1 that I mentioned last week.. and getting VERY excited!!! The first port of call is the caravan site at the end of Mrs D’s lane – ready for her Golden Wedding celebrations! So, I’ll be MIA for a while – but I’ll be back in time for the crop!
Some of you asked questions in your comments last week – yes, I’ll take photos of the places I go to – and I’ll show you some! – planning on taking my camera AND John’s, in case I run out of hard disk storage on one or the other!!
I don’t sell the cards to the hotel, Belinda – I put them there on Sale or Return – that way they keep all the money separate, and at the end of the season the local hospice gets a nice chunk of cash as well as me. Where did you buy that pencil sharpener from? I’ve been looking for one and can’t seem to find one. What is it called? Thanks for your comment on the horse chestnut photo – it just sat there in the sun, and I couldn’t resist
So that’s me. folks, this week. Last Saturday I took a trip over to Anglesey and sat gazing across the Menai Straits to the mainland. Glorious!!
So, take care, folks. God bless.
