Smack My Fingers Again...

Hi folks...yesterday's day out didn't quite go to plan...we were intending driving up to the beautiful coastal town of Cullen on the Moray Firth...
the same one that gave it's name to Cullen Skink Soup but once again the horrible dreich foggy wet weather put a damper on our plans...we didn't fancy the long drive in the company of all those idiot drivers with no lights or a stroll along the gorgeous beach licking our ice cream cones and no fun afternoon retail therapy at the famous Spotty Bag Shop either.
instead we decided to just enjoy a long lazy chatty lunch nearer to home and with the departure time set back an hour or two...there was just time for a flying visit to The Papeterie to sort out a bit of a logistical problem with the goodies for Kath's Klub so if you've signed up for next Saturday's workshops...forget yesterday's sneaky peek...there's been a bit of an about turn on what we will be making..
all because my eyes were out on stalks when I spotted a huge box of brand new and old favourite goodies from Tim Holtz waiting to make their way on to the shelves and yes smack my fingers...I've been very very naughty again...
 ooohhh...aaaahhh how could I resist the new stencils...
You and I all know that there is absolutely no cure available for this terrible wonderful affliction...all us crafty girls can do is give in to the symptoms and roll with it.  Don't tell the Friday Girls but oh boy was I tempted to call in sick and take a rain check...not being in the least bit crafty I'm sure they aren't familiar with the virus we all suffer from...Timholtzitis but I know them too well...a quick Google on their I-Phones and my cover would have been well and truly blown.
And today is going to be a play day...a very happy happy Tim Holtz play day...woohoo thank you Tim & Mario for including me in your Springtime Blogworthy Links and I am so happy to see my lovely buddies Emma...Pete...Brenda...Astrid...Jenny and Alison there too and if I can stop dancing on the ceiling I'll be back tomorrow to share some even more super duper exciting news about a fun workshop coming soon to The Papeterie.
Enjoy your weekend everyone
Toodle-oo for now
Hugs Kath xxx

Was a horrid day in Perth too Kath, more like November! You really are a naughty girl right enough but you did make me giggle! Hope maybe next week you'll get your trip to Cullen and an ice cream. x

I like that, Timholtzitis!! So many of us have it... I was super thrilled to see your name on the Blogworthy Links again, you so deserve your place there along with my wonderful DT Sisters! I bet you are all dancing on the ceiling today - very worthy, each and every one of you. Hope the weather picks up! Hugs, Anne xx

If I had a blogworthy list, you would be on it too Kath - so well deserved - congratualtions. Had my own parcels of goodies arrive today - amongst them were some craftwork card papers from their sale - too good to miss - do I need any more? of course not! Having a busy time of it. Last night singing and playing my ukulele with the wonderful Sam Brown (sung a solo too and all went well) had a brilliant evening raising funds for Practical Action. This afternoon went to a Mad Hatter's Tea Party in our village hall raising funds for the British Legion where I wore a very silly hat and this evening just off to The Kenton in Henley for a Jazz night in aid of a local school so it's all go. Needless to say not much further on with my craft room. Just looked at tomorrow's weather so I think I may be decorating rather than gardening so may get it finished - finally. Hope you are having a good week-end - Cullen looks fab - hope you get there soon. love X
