What A Day...

Morning's been quite a week so far and yesterday was one of those days...contrary to what the furry member of the cubbyhole crew with the big mouth told you...I wasn't off on another jolly...OK I did a fair bit of on the trail of a vital component of the DIY variety for a crafty project...B&Q was my first port of call...should have known better...amongst the thousands of products they sell...could I find the one little thing I needed and locating a member of staff for assistance is like looking for a needle in a haystack...hardly what you would call a "float my boat" jolly day but the little blighter was finally located in a little backstreet hardware store and all's well that ends well.
I'll now be chaining myself to my workdesk for the next 2 days...cranking up the production line to get those Christmas projects finished...yes Christmas in May sounds a bit crazy doesn't it and you won't be surprised to know that I'm struggling to get into the Christmas groove but I have a plan...I know a man who may well just put me in the mood...who else but the delectable Mr Buble.
There's a certain urgency to nailing those christmas crafty deadlines because...hold on a minute until I cover The Furry Boy's ears...I'm off on another jolly on Saturday...a girly weekend away with my little sis and a couple of friends...oops guess who's going to have a face like a fiddle come Saturday.
But before I go I have mega mega exciting news to share with you all...check out the latest product from Fiskars...launching in the US in June and coming to the UK soon...can't wait to have a play...

And talking of play it's time to cue the music...pull up the big girl knickers and get crafting but first things first...tidy up yesterday's debris...
See you all tomorrow for sneaky peek Friday.

  1. couldn't find the video...that's not much of a mess, kath!

  2. Hopefully the maid will turn up soon to help you out Kath if not try the magic wand.Yes it is very difficult to find that wee things in the huge "We sell everything" big stores nowadays.Enjoy your day, looking forward to seeing your creations tomorrow.

  3. Wow, that new machine looks great. Look what a mess Buddy made in your room while your were out. Enjoy your weekend.

  4. Trust Buddy to get it wrong when he said you were off out gallivanting. Typical male!

    Pity the lovely weather's disappeared and it's back to damp dogs again.

  5. Mind whehere you put your feet & hope buddy doesn't get hisnose caught in that nestie die! The trouble is the floor is SUCH as useful crafting area!
    Intrigued by the machine.
    Hope you get it all done....Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells.......

  6. Ah, the delectable Mr Buble indeed' so glad my lovely fellow countryman floats your boat too! That letterpress looks amazing, it does look quite easy to use too. At least with the weather change you might be more comfortable in the cubby hole - but poor Buddy this weekend, he's not going to like it.............Crafty hugs, Anne x

  7. I saw a video of the machine yesterday - looks very interesting! Cleaning up in a craft room always seems more enjoyable than when doing the rest of the home!

  8. OMG......I need one of those machines. It's going straight on my list.
    Have a fab weekend.

  9. Creativeness comes by making mess, no avoiding it so if having fun why care. My quote of the day lol. My desk and floor about the same as yours. Have a lovely girlie weekend, I'm sure there'll be a lot of hilarity going by some of your past jaunts Kath. Enjoy. Carolxx

  10. Oh that new toy looks good, can't wait to see what u think about it, might have to put it onto my need list.

  11. new toy looks interesting..That's not messy Kath! you should see mine.. you sound a busy bee over the next couple of days... Have a wonderful time with your sis over the weekend.. Hugs May x x x

  12. Enjoy your crafting once you have done the horrible tidy up bit...
    I have to say I have been following your blog for some time now..and while reading a magazine which I get regular..I noticed someone in it that loos so like you... and guess what it is you in it !!! so looked back through old ones..and hey presto your in a few... Well done xx

  13. The new toy look neat, no wonder your looking forward to playing with it. Have a good day. Hugs x ChrisB

  14. That looks a very exciting piece of kit - I haven't yet invested in a die cutting machine of any sort, so this gives me another one to consider before taking the plunge!

  15. looks interesting but i bet it will cost a bit! hugs Karen x

  16. That new Fiskars system looks pretty amazing! I'm going to keep my eye out for it here in the US. I've been using my little Cuttlebug for about 3 years and have nearly worn the poor thing out.

  17. Like the look of the Fuse! I wonder what it will retail for??


Thanks for taking the time to visit me in the cubbyhole...I love to hear from you.
