That's life folks and it doesn't look as though there will be any let up between now and Christmas....it's scary that we are now careering headlong towards the big day and in between now and then I have to fit in all the usual crafty stuff....4 days of Fiskars Fun at the SECC....2 workshops at Simply Create....4 family birthdays....a 7 day visit to New York...and all the manic stuff associated with Christmas...the present shopping....card making gift wrapping and then organising all the grub and preparing it...crikey I think I may just run for the hills too....but there is one consolation at the end of this month...the clocks go back and we gain an hour....use it wisely my friends.
And the reason for all this doom and gloom from your usually up beat CubbyHole Girl.....the thought that winter is fast approaching...the days are getting shorter and I hate the dark cold mornings....it's pitch black outside as I sit and type and gone are the first coffee of the day outside with The Budster and my birdie friends mornings.....but what is the solution....relocate down under for the winter months or stay in the UK and hibernate until Spring comes along. But enough of my "feel sorry for myself tale of woe" probably brought on by the runny nose and badger's bum throat....so it's time for some upbeat crafty news.
Oodles of new stuff has arrived at Simply Create.....Anne and I had great fun rummaging through boxes of items just crying out to be altered.....a bit out of my comfort zone but totally yummy and I have so many ideas running around in my head...I can't wait to play...so watch this space.
In the meantime a sneaky peek of some stuff I am working on for a secret project coming to this blog soon...
and a morning spent die-cutting...just need to get creative now
and do you know what...I am feeling better already....just needed to clear my head and get a few things off my chest....a trouble shared is a trouble halved isn't that what they say....wonder if my new found upbeat mood along with the diet of blackcurrant honey and lemon drinks....bowls of piping hot home made soup will send Mr Nasty Cold well and truly packing.
Catch up with you all tomorrow when The Furry Boy will be announcing his give-away winner...in the meantime I am off to ponder with a cup of warming hot chocolate on one of life's little puzzles.....why do dogs never get colds and flu????
