Bluebells and Dogs

Morning , yes I missed Monday again !!!

Was so bogged down getting all this GDPR stuff finished I forgot.

Anyway this mornings post is nothing craft related for a change , I thought I'd share my morning dog walk.

The Bluebells are out in our local woods, so this morning I thought I'd take Lola and Charlie up there before it got too hot.

They really are a beautiful sight.


See you soon

Sorry I'm Late ......

Oops I have just realised that I missed Monday's post altogether.

Monday was a bit of a manic day, we had appointments for both kids but in different directions !!!! 
So I went on the train one way and hubby went the opposite way with our daughter.

So other than that not too much happening , I've been bogged down sorting out all this GDPR stuff ready for the 25th May when it all comes in to effect.

But in between I have managed to list a couple of items on my website .

So that's me for today , I'm off to finish an order for a chicken clock .

Sunny Bank Holiday Monday

Hello everyone , wow what lovely weather we have had over this Bank Holiday weekend , it's so lovely to see the sun.

Today I'm sharing with you a quick video of a wreath that I have finished .
The colours have been chosen to match the sunny days.
I have used Daffodil Yellow and Mustard Yellow.

The flowers have been folded to be fluffy, I'll do a video another day on how they are made.

So that's it for today , enjoy the sun.

Felt Flowers Galore

Hello , I'm starting a new resolve to post a blog post every Monday .

So today I'm sharing a video with you of how I made a felt flower garland
that I have in my website.

But first Charlie and Lola just want to say hello 😉

Here they are on a walk with my mother in law's dog Sam.

As the title suggests I've been busy making my felt flowers, I love working with felt.

This picture shows some felt flower bouquets that I made for my mum and mother in law for Mother's day.

Here is the garland that I spoke about at the start of the post.

I hope you enjoy the video.

See you next week.

Update on Lola

Hi all , so not completely craft related , but I thought I'd post an update on Lola.

Well Lola had her MRI yesterday , brain all normal, they've diagnosed focal/partial seizures. Just waiting on results on spinal fluid in case of any inflammation. She may stay as focal/partial seizures all her life or it could eventually lead to full seizures, but they've caught it early and she's on meds. So a case of wait and see I think.

 I'm just glad that I am at home all the time , so I can keep an eye on her and administer her meds.

In the meantime I am working away on some new items , which I'll share soon.

I also need to get on with making a card for my eldest , he's going to be 17 on Friday , where does the time go !!!

Be back soon,

Welcome Wreath

Hello , apologies for missing in action again , as usual I have got caught up with appointments for the kids and one of the dogs.

So I'll start by saying , Happy New Year !!!

It's been a manic time with the usual appointments with the kids , and then sorting out Lola my collie , she's now 18 months old and has started having a few funny turns which they think are focal seizures, so we've been up to see a neurologist near Liverpool , they have started her on epilepsy meds , and she is going back in Feb for an MRI .

Here is my cutie on a walk with the family and Charlie the Jack Russell

This is her jacket for on walks , she is so nervous of other dogs , so this helps as people notice the colour and stop and usually move their dogs out of the way.
Also in the run up to Christmas I was busy with orders from my Etsy store.

But anyway , I have been busy making felt flowers as that is my new love , so I actually managed to get a You Tube video made yesterday so I will share with you here, it's an MDF wreath base decorated with felt flowers and a few other bits.

So I think that is all for today

Catch up soon

Flower Power

Hello , back again 😀

This week here in Mid Wales is half term , plus hubby has the week off , so we've mainly been dog walking and sorting out some things around the house ready for some new storage from IKEA , I can't wait to get all my craft stuff looking tidy .

The kids don't go trick or treating at Halloween as I am not keen on the idea , but we still decorate some pumpkins and have some party food at home .

This year as we are all fed up of carving them , we went for a different idea of melting wax crayons down them , they came out really good.

Dan's is on the left , Hannah's on the right.

I've had a bit of spare time this week while supervising Dan , as he can't be left on his own , so I've managed to make some felt flowers while watching him.

I have lots of ideas buzzing around in my head for these , but am going to hold fire till Christmas is out of the way.

So that's it for today , be back again next week ,
