Hello and welcome to my little corner of Blogland.
Thank you for calling in today. For all my followers who do not have an active Blog, I enjoy that you come to visit. Unfortunately I can`t visit you and leave a comment. I want you to know I love that you follow me on this journey. For my other followers you certainly have given lots of encouragement and inspiration which I appreciate.
I have to thank you all for your concern over my "hairdresser". A few of you said to look for another .... well I have been looking ages for an alternative, no one has come up to the standard I want. I have very thick hair which I wear short, re:- my photo .. that`s it. When I go to a new hairdresser I know by the way they approach me whether they will be any use or not. If they hesitate with the scissors I just tell them to take a little off and don`t go back. If they get stuck right in I know that they will do OK. However so many times I find someone and within a few months they either move away or get pregnant and leave. The only other person that cuts my hair to the standard I like is my hairdresser in Dalyan, Turkey. She has cut my hair for 14 years. When I win my millions on the Lottery I will hire a private jet to take me out to get my haircut every 6 weeks. She also cuts Hazel`s hair when we are there, so we could both fly out together LOL!!! Now! there is only one problem .... I do not buy Lottery tickets............. dream on Patricia!!!
No card today I have been so busy making Gift Bags for the Tearoom.
Here are a few that have been in the Tearoom and gone. Over the past 10 days they have sold 8 Gift Bags plus a few Boxes
These ones are made using papers from Tilda Paper Stacks "Kitchen Garden & Country Escapes"
I find the weight of the papers just perfect. A great balance between card & paper
I make them approx 10 at a time that way I can mix and match the Roses.
I usually make the Roses using the reverse side of the paper for each Gift Bag. Sometimes I feel this is a bit pale so just mix and match with the other shades of card I am using. Just a case of try it and see
The papers are 12x12 I cut out all the Bags, Bases & Roses, at the end of the session I am left with only a strip of card 12x41/2 inches from each bag. I then use this on cards so literally no waste
If I use A4 card I find I have more waste
That`s it for today
Thanks again for popping in I really appreciate that you take time from your busy days to leave a comment
Till next time
