"Boy at Work"

Hello Blog Friends, followers and anyone who pressed a wrong button and landed here!!!
Please stay a while, have look round, if you like what you see maybe you could leave a comment so I know you called in.  
Well folks its Saturday and the weekend is upon us once again.  
Our boys are here today, Thomas coming early.  Robert playing football and will be picked up later.  I will have to have plenty supplies in, they both eat lots.  
Dinner here this evening for all, except Mum who will not finish till 8pm.  I box Audrey`s meal up, they take it home for her to have when she gets home.
Here is the kind of thing Thomas likes to do while he is here.  Robert is just happy to kick a ball about the garden or craft with me.

A few weeks ago Thomas was in the Garage and asked what the big tin of paint was for.  We told him it was for painting the Summerhouse once the weather improved.  Thomas said he would do it, he is saving for a LARGE Lego Kit, working hard at home and here to earn some money.  
Last Sunday was a beautiful day so the job was done.  Grandpa went over into the field to do the back Thomas did all the rest.

Here is another of my Brusho efforts.  I really liked this piece so did not add anything to it.
This piece was the best of the all the pieces I actually did (well I thought so anyway) 

Right best get a move on or the John Jr will be here with Thomas before we know it.
Thank you you so much for calling by, I love to have you visit.
Have a wonderful weekend

"Oldie for Friday"

Hello Blog friends and followers.  Thank you for the welcome back, it is so good to see and hear what you have all been up to.
 What about this weather ... well the weather here in the North East of Scotland is warm one day then back to winter the next.  I just never know what to wear!!!
Anyway its Friday once again.  Erika over at http://snappycrafts.blogspot.co.uk/ started  "oldie for Friday" some time ago.   Its an opportunity to show off any crafts you have done in the past.  It does not have to be Papercraft, anything you have hand made is acceptable. 
Here is mine for today:-

Remember this style of Bag??  This was made using Spellbinder Grand Label One Die. 
Roses Made using Spellbinder Blossom 5 Die and Foliage Die
I do not make many of these now, it is so much easier to use the XCut Bag Die.  
Once made up they hold about the same amount of stuff.
 
That`s it for today
Thank you for calling in I really do appreciate it.
Have a great day

Hellooo!!! we are connected again!!

Hello Blog friends, wow! oh! wow! how I have missed being connected to the outside world.  Especially the world of Blogging!!!
We are now up and running once more ... a Happy Bunny here.
I could not believe that I had just mastered "scheduling" then lost my Internet connection.  
I had been trying to schedule posts but did not realise that you had to press "publish" even though it was to be shown in a few days time ...Doh!!!
Here I am apologising once again for not keeping up with you all.  I will get there I promise.
I can`t say my time away has helped me do LOTS of crafting it did NOT!!!
Anyway enough chat:-
I did experiment with the Brusho`s I bought a couple of years ago.  Sorry they are not for me except to maybe use them as "water colour paints"  I am not an artist so there is not much hope even using them as paints!!!  
Here are a few of my efforts, I did pieces and managed to rescue some small "bits" to make into cards for my box.

I felt these were OK to use as little cards.  
At some point I will let you see my efforts using them as "water colour paints"
 
That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time
Hugs
