Thats how I feel right now. I have just found that my oh so special lie in tomorrow has been shattered. I am slightly annoyed. When you think you are working and should be working 16:00 til 21:00 to be working at 06:30 - 10:30 and 16:00 - 21:00 it's abit of a cheek...! Not even to be told.... GRRR!
So I am unhappy tonight :(
But on the bright side it's Studio Calico release day tomoz... :) and my class on Sunday with a bunch of lurverly ladies... and Kev has just brought me a huge bottle of raspberry daquiri :D
Things actually aren't that bad any more.

This one, i'm not sure of at all.... Hmmm. In my mind it was totally different. It some how didn't come together at all. I hate LO's like that.
I think it needs scrolls/flourishes/similar... It will however be left in my 'projects to finish pile' for a while until I can decide how it should work out. Thats how I end up with so many unfinished projects. I am hoping that today I will blitz a few more and finish them up :)
My cold is drying up, I am feeling slightly more human. I am hoping that Emily and Ben will not get it but i'm guessing that they will as Kev was feeling icky last night.
I am eager for work tomorrow... I have heard that some deliveries have started arriving!!! I also have so many classes running over the next few weeks. I am going to be super busy :)

This is an ongoing project that I started from a SiSTV class with Ashley Wren... this gal is fabby. Her classes are super cool ;) The book has several sections, it's more like an art journo than a scrapping book. I love it. It seriously gets you thinking and journo'ing your heart out :)
This little book is soooo cute... I got it at Sugar and Spice! Ages ago, like when it first came in probably 6 months ago. I finally covered it last night :)

Facebook still has me hooked. I am totally addicted to it, along with paper and cute sparkly stuff and Robots! I finished up this LO this afternoon, while Em and I settled down to Murder, She Wrote... :)
This one pays homage to a very special baby chair I brought for my niece Abbeygail over 6 years ago. It had lasted through 4 babies and then it met Ben. In all fairness Ben was such a contented baby that he practically lived in that chair for the first nine months of his life. Happy to watch the world go by in his Jenny Giraffe chair. However, left unattended for just too long... this was the result. Note the clothes strewn everywhere and the chair nearly snapped in two! This is when I realised I had had it lucky for sometime and he had finally realised he was a 'boy' :)
'It was just a malfunction!'
The cute robot from Cosmo Cricket.
Those orange bits need some stitching to finish him up... and when the LO is all finished I will share with you just how cute he is :)
Right now I have a boy to cuddle and a little girl who wants to play on CBeebies. So i'm off. P x

The little envelope was from SoML and has a little note inside (paper thanks to Nina!) that reads... 'and no matter how hard life got, she still found reasons to smile'. I think we can all relate to that one. Life can be tough at times but look on the bright side and you get through.

A short and quick yummy snack before one of our classes began... Marion did not know about the deliciousness of Peanut Kitkats.

It originally started with the idea that i'd just doodle the whole title... but I sooo wanted to use these glossy thickers. I love 'g's like this, with big curly tails and a little tuft on top... :) And I love those little 'stary' thingies too.
So here is my BASB entry for thier little challenge. I am not normally a challenge type gal but this one floated my boat and made me smile.

The finished article, complete with SC own designed paper... Fabby thickers, these ones smell devine when you open a new packet...! Ribbon, brads and yummies.
All completed this afto, while Ben slept and Emily played happy mrs. chicken on her DS.
I just love paper. Really I do. I am beginning to think I have a problem with it. I know I do. I just got a delicious box of American Crafts goodies arrive. Whoa. There stuff is so cute atm. Very KI. Very kitsch. Just very bloomin' lovely.
I ordered it all from Sarah's cards. I only ordered it on Monday :) I am a very happy bunny. I love stash. I love paper. I love my hobby which is slowly taking over my life. (which I L.O.V.E) And after buying this, which is such good value... I think I need to get scrapping ;)
I am also off this weekend, well on Sunday after my class... to a trade show with Marion and Nina. Thank you Miss. Marion for inviting me. I am sooo excited and cannot wait to go :) :) :)There might also be some fan-tabulous news for a certain person too ;)
I am a lucky girl.

So, after the best weekend. I had the best box delivered. One add on this time and a maya road glimmer mist in charcoal, which I have yet to use! I had to take Em to and from school and got soaked each time and so this was a welcomed piece of happiness on such a dreary day.
I have completed my first LO with this gorgeous kit... I love it :) I love MM, they lost it a while back IMO but seem to have got their groove back and the pins, paper and stickers from them are lush.
The exclusive Studio Calico papers are amazing this time! I lurvvve the pommegranite (sp!!) paper... *yum* I am not a red scrapping gal. I hardly ever choose red. I think its pretty hard to scrap with, I find it hard to match and I just find it hard. But I love this kit. I cannot wait to use the stamps!! Four, cute individual ones. I wish I had got the bicycle stamp add on a while back. I sooooo need that stamp now :( These kits just seem to be getting better and better.
I am loving beads and stitching right now... If you hadn't noticed!
And I have a bit of an obsession with Cosmo blackboard, so this kit satisfied my needs... Well, except the fact I now need more :)
