Bits & Bobs...

Hey Everyone...

Well you'll be glad to hear I finally stopped and REEELAXXXED! Yesterday, I had my first lie in in ages! The fiance and I had a lovely relaxed morning. Of course, Saturday meant a few chores, shopping, cleaning etc, but I also got to have some fun too! 

I am still trying to relax now, so I am just posting a quick blog of bits and bobs that don't fit anywhere else...

Quick & easy pear crumble - made with pears from the tree in our communal garden

My attempt at making a 'craft' area on my shelf - nice to see all my fabrics and granny squares piled up!

A pretty cake stand I have wanted for ages - found yesterday reduced at homebase!

Pear and apple jam (made from my pears and a work colleague's apples) - made yesterday - but it hasn't set!

A metal Moulin Rouge sign from the Toulouse Lautrec exhibition

I have a few more posts lined up that I will be posting over the next few days when I get a chance, but this week is going to be super busy preparing for my first ever craft fair, THIS SATURDAY 1st October at The Boogaloo pub in Highgate, North London!

It would be fantastic if you could make it along...


I also have a reason to celebrate! I have won my FIRST EVER giveaway! I am so excited! The lovely Bibbitybob ran a giveaway for some fantastic designing software and I have won a copy of the Mymemoriessuite! I can't wait to try it out!
