A Little Fiskars Give-Away

FISKARS GIVE-AWAY IS NOW CLOSED....Morning folks....well yesterday turned out to be one of those catch up days....suitcase to unpack and washing to organise....demo kit to unpack and blimey I go away for 3 days and you all go into a crafting frenzy......still trying to catch up with all my favourite blogs and visit all my lovely Penny Black addicts who have entered this week's challenge.
And while packing away my demo stuff...I  seem to have 2 of the fabulous Ribbon Slits Punches....I already had one in my kit and I think Fiskars must have sent me another in my Goodie Box  for the SECC...so time for another little give-away....leave me a comment and I will choose one lucky winner on Friday and who knows it could be winging it's way to you.

And what am I up today.....oh it's dead boring I tell you....off to sand down the paintwork in the bedroom......oh how I hate that job....everything covered in dust including me and "The Budster"....but preparation is everything or so they say....so we can't move on until it's done....the quicker I get the messy jobs out of the way I can get stuck into painting in the morning and crafting in the afternoons......and why oh why was I feeling on top of the world yesterday but this morning the old body seems to be protesting.....I think it must have been the acrobatics I had to perform to get myself onto the high bar stool I had to sit on to demo......now I am not a sit down crafter at all and for those that have met me you could say I am slightly challenged in the height department...the counter was so high that standing up was not an option....well you can't demo if the folks can't see you so it was a mammoth task for me to scale the dizzy heights and get myself gracefully onto this bar stool...goodness knows how many times in one day....take note Fiskars I need a step ladder for next time either that or a box to stand on.    Well I'm afraid I can't stand chatting all day...need to get some work done...sander and mask at the ready...so catch up with you all later.
Hugs Kath xxxxxx
Edited to add: How brilliant were Hayley and Dan.....sixes across the board and a standing ovation from the audience and the judges...even Jason.....and you know what.....I think there might just be a little romance going on there....they just ooze sexual chemistry.....am I jealous...you bet I am.....what do you think?   Oh dear how on earth am I going to concentrate on sanding down the paintwork now with the words sexual chemistry running around in my head.....and Birthday Blog Candy closes tonight at midnight.

  12. I agree Kath. Bar stools are not the best for those of us who are not over 5ft tall. I hate them. Hope your sanding down goes quickly. Thanks for the chance at this lovely edge punch.

  25. If I had to face the task of sanding the paint, I assure you I would rather have sexual chemistry running through my mind than the whinny "oh I hate this job" that would normally be there...LOL

    Welcome home. Sounds like you survived the task of being exhausted and exhilarated at the same time. Hugs, the Oz

  46. Hi Kath

    Having just won the Craftwork Cards Ovals challenge, thought I must have a "lucky streak" and thought I would leave you a comment for the lovely Fiskars punch! Do you know I was thinking of you on that train as I was watching Dancing on Ice on Sunday night - and I agree with you Dan and Hayley are just fantastic - and if they are not dating - they damn well should be! - I had a tear in my eye when they got their standing ovation - I want them to win!!

    I know how much you love your Budster - he does look so adorable. I too am mad about my little doggie called Tilly - she is my baby! If you have the time (after all that sanding down) there are some photos of her on my blog.

    Take care and happy blogging.

  72. Poor Kath - the Fiskars counter definitely looked like it was easier for those watching the demos than those doing them!! Just imagine if that had been me - I would definitely would have to have found some other method of letting the lovely crafters see me, as nothing in this world would have got me on that bar stool!
    And your M&S slippers do look really comfy - not the kind of thing you would want Mr T H to see you in though.

    Lots of Love
    Ann

    P.S - has Buddy recovered from your little absence? Need to make arrangements to see you both soon.

  78. Hi Kath, don't envy you the decorating. I'm still trying to catch up and I was only at the SECC for a day. Was at a WRI quiz tonight and we tied for first place....and we thought our score was really low. Been making a card for WRI competition for Saturday. Not sure I like it but going to post soon....I hope. Got to get my DT cards done too. Having to work is such a pain lol!!
