Monday Morning Blues

Morning folks...I've got the Monday Morning Blues after a lazy lounging around doing absolutely nothing kind of a day yesterday...that anti-climax feeling when you've spent the last few weeks gearing up for a big day and now it's over....the same feeling you get when Christmas has come and gone in a flash and you've been running around like a headless chicken...but time to share the pics from Saturday...guaranteed to cheer me up....

the clock is ticking...timed to perfection..will it go like clockwork
countdown to the party starting....
happy smiley faces....even before we've begun....
hard at work crafty girls....

a welcome stop for a celebrate with the birthday girl and look at all those yummy cakes...
in Promarker Heaven with Debbi
bags of Fun with Anne...
and he7e is the project we made at my crafty station....
Timmie Holtz "Home Sweet Home" Canvas

why don't you pop over to visit Debbi and Anne to see their fabulous crafty projects....

just a few of the lovely comments we got from our crafty girls...

and we will take on board the constructive criticism....more time needed with Debbi in the Promarker Class...I have been banned from deafening everyone in the room whilst singing along to Michael Buble and sorry folks we know that it got quite warm in the room but unfortunately we have no powers over Mr Sunshine putting his brightest hottest hat on...the fan did help a bit but it also blew my project bits and pieces all over the place.

A huge thank you to Fiskars...Letraset...Anne and Charlotte at the Paperterie for providing the prizes for our lucky badge draw....
2 Sets of 12 Blending Pack Letraset Promarker Pens
Fiskars Bracket Punch
Fiskars 2 Pairs of Scissors
Stampin Up Stamp Set
Box of White Pearlised Card
and congrats to the lucky winners...

I'm wandering around like a lost soul this morning with no pressing deadlines this know the feeling...the less you have to do the longer you take to do it.  I'm in my element when the list of crafty things is as long as my arm and my back is up against the wall so it could be a grumpy coffee overload kind of a day until I get back in the swing.
Mind you I have a pile of ironing to catch up on of Mount Everest proportions...the wardrobe has more empty hangers than full...the windows could be doing with a clean....the kitchen cupboards need attention but not jobs that exactly float my boat and fill me with joy. On the other hand....I could have a cookathon day...stocking up the freezer which comes in handy when the crafty stuff takes over my life or if the weather behaves a day getting grubby in the garden or maybe play along with a challenge or two. Is indeciveness an age thing....why can't I decide what I'm going to do and get on with it...instead of spending most of the day thinking about it and by the time I've made up my's not worth starting.  Sound familiar.
Catch up with you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx


  1. Morning Kath....oh that looks like a fantastic workshop, wished I lived your canvas. I am very undecided what to do today...think I possibly have the same ironing as you....I also think the crafty den is calling prizes for guessing what I'm doing...have a good one! S x

  2. Love the canvas Kath! Looks like you all had fun.

  3. Morning !!!! sure you'll e back to your usual breakneck speed by lunchtime Kath .Have fun whatever you get up to

  4. Morning Both.When you have finished your windows mine need done as well.I don't have a crafty deadline excuse.What a great day you must have had and your canvas is gorgeous.Wish i lived nearer as well.
    Have a good day and don't work too hard.
    Kathleen x

  5. here's an idea - can we make each others projects as a trial run for next time?

  6. Oh yes, your indecisiveness is all too familiar Kath . . . and I'm "only" 45!

    Another FAB canvas there . . . and CAKES and . . .well . . . you're not helping with my envious feelings are you?!

    Hugs, Sandra

  7. Your craft day looked great fun - I did my ironing yesterday and today I am going to make nice things, some cards then some bread hugs Mary G x

  8. Morning Kath. The photos look fantastic! Sounds like a great success. Your project is wonderful. I know exactly what you mean with making decisions, the main problem I have is so much to do and not knowing where to start. Have a good day x

  9. whow that looks a verry great day!!!! your card is gorgeous as always!!!!
    xx petra

  10. sounds like a lot of fun, wish i lived a lot closer to enjoy the classes- especially for the canvas one! I have received my parcel of goodies - thank you so much! i eam enjoying the hemp cord

  11. Morning Kath ... sounds very familiar. So pleased your crafty day went with a swing - it made me feel quite envious - pity I don't live nearer!!! The canvas looks gorgeous. tfs. Enjoy your day whatever you choose to do....

  12. No time for housework Kath, Mogo's in gear again, off to have a good play. Thanks for a great day out. Carolxx

  13. Hello Kath - looks as though that was a fabulous day - wish I could have been there - could do with a good laugh!!
    I know exactly how you feel today - I feel like that today too, but mine is post holiday blues - undecisive, so much that needs doing but just can't be bothered LOL! And the dreary, wet, bank holiday weather doesn't help. I must get the washing out of the machine now though!
    Hope you manage to have a good day.
    Love, Andrea xx

  14. oooh I just love your canvas, so wish I could have been there

  15. What a great day you all had, and I LOOOOOOVE your project, Kath - oh how I wish I lived closer! Thanks for the fun share!

  16. i adored this make, and canny wait to play with the kit I bought!

    it was a great day, loved it all.

    hugs & love Teen xxx

  17. Just ask Buddy to lick the windows & dig the garden whilst you get on with the ironing - that way it will all be done in a jiffy. Looks like you all had great fun.

  18. Sounds like you had a great day, wish I lived nearer, love your canvas, it's very inspirational.

    Hope you're enjoying your day whatever chores you choose to do...or maybe do nothing at all, the ultimate luxury!


  19. Kath, your project for your class is beautiful. So how do we get you to become a world-traveler, (kind of like Mr. H.) so that more people can attend your classes. I would love to know how to create with canvas. Get your thinkin' cap on while you are just sitting, enjoying your cuppa.

  20. Hi Kath, I'm with you I work better with a deadline! I need to do something with Jacqui's kit but all I seem to do is faff about thinking about what I'm going to do. I'm so chuffed with my canvas and I'd really love to do another one.

    Kat xx

  21. Wow, that looks like a whole lot of fun! Your project is amazing! (I would expect nothing less)If I ever find myself in your neck of the woods, one of your classes will be at the top of my list of things to do!
    hugs, nancy & digby

  22. Kath,I love the pictures you have of your workshop. The ladies must enjoy their day with all of you. I only wish i could be there sometime.
    You are right about indecision coming with age. Allow yourself to "take a rest" and try not to feel guilty about it. My puppy loves those frequent couch days with me !!
    Give Buddy a big hug !

  23. meant to ask you, what shade was the paint we used on the frame, I got some Annie sloan paint, but got cream, and that is more yellow than I thought it would be. still smile when i think about laughs at the workshop xx
