I've had to tear myself away from this

For six days I've had to stay in this hotel in Tuscany, Spend hours lazying round this pool and the hardest thing......
Eating food like this!
Thank goodness I'm home.
Now where's the diet books.

By the time you read this..

I should be on my way to Italy, I'm not going to the seaside, this time I'm off to the luscious countryside of Tuscany. But I've just got these gorgeous stamps from here and I just had to try them out.

I'm going to use this for the tag swap at our monthly glue and stick group. The fab pin up came from 3Djean
See you after the hols, thanks for dropping by

School's out

Summer term has finished and I've no more classes until September. So today I spent some time messing about in my craft room. I started by sorting out a load of samples and putting inserts into them so they could go out to Afghanistan. One of my students regularly sends out cards so that our troops can send their loved ones a message. I'd never thought about it before but of course they don't have any shops. Then I decided to have a go at making a storage box that one of my crop friends had been making. It looked easy enough using envelopes.
Not bad for a first try but I think next time it doesn't need to be so wide. I'm going to stand it on my window sill and pop all those bits and bobs that get left on my desk. It should be full in about a week lol.

Then I carried on to cover a notebook.

Flower was made by punching out three circles, sewing on a button, then snipping round.

All in all a really nice way to while away a Sunday afternoon.
