A Nora Batty Moment

Morning's going to be all go this week....I'm drowning in a sea of crafty stuff and so much left to do before I leave on Wednesday for Glasgow....but hey all work and no play is tres boring so I took a little jaunt  out to Simply Create on Friday to get some advice from the sewing lovely buddy Anne about glamming up the old demo slippers ready for the SECC.....yes you did read that correctly....I will be wearing  my super duper comfy M&S slippers for 4 days....have even been known to stroll back to the hotel wearing them....happy feet means HAPPY ME.  But now I have matching tote and elegant darling....check out the ballet pose.....I didn't quite pull off the prima donna look....more like Nora Batty.

and more time out for fun on Saturday to visit my lovely buddy Debbi who was wowing everyone at the Papeterie with her Promarker demo.

Anne and Debbi are in mega excited mode..only 6 more sleepies girls....they are coming to the Hobbycraft show at the SECC for the first time...think of kids in a sweetie shop and you get the idea and the best bit they are staying overnight on Saturday at the same hotel. Will we be painting the town red....somehow I don't think so....we will be quite happy with a nice relaxing evening...yummy dinner...a few drinks and lots of chat and giggles...after all they have another serious day's shopping on the Sunday before we all travel home on the train........Glasgow and Scotrail BEWARE !!!
And woohooo this little card was a Fab 5 winner over at the Holiday Cardmaking Competition on the Hero Arts Blog.....a big thank you to Hero Arts for cheering up this old crafter and choosing my card out of all the fabulous entries.    The prize is a bumper $50 of Hero Arts the catalogue will be coming to bed with me for the next few nights and decisions decisions....what to choose.
Catch up with you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxxx

Love the slippers, when I worked in retail I wished I could have worn my slippers you need to have comfy feet.

Well done on the win and well deserved although I doubt if there is any stamps you havnt already got.

Congrats on the win I love the idea of bedtime stamp reading. I do think you need a hairband as well to match the baffies but looking good. Have fun with the girls.
