Boxing Day Sale

25% off shop items
3 for 2 on all On line workshops and project sheets 

Morning everyone, I hope you had a wonderfully Festive Day yesterday with family and friends.  We were looking forward to Christmas Dinner at a fabulous local hotel but ventured into something that resembled Faulty Towers complete with two aged Spanish waiters trying to serve 120 people.  After an hour and a half we sent back our main course and asked them to  start again and serve us something that warranted the £275 we'd paid. 
Our menu was pre-booked but when we eventually got to our sweets, some 3 1/2 hours after arriving they didn't have enough left. Quelle surprise............ Can laugh about it now but it was absolutely appalling. I'm cooking again tonight ..... it really won't be hard to top the hotel cuisine we had yesterday lol! 
Its the duck race here today - so well have a quacking good time in the park 
 and It's sale day over on the website today so if you fancy grabbing yourself a festive bargain or two follow the link below. 

Enjoy your day wherever you are, thank you for calling by and look forward to catching up again soon :-) C

  5. I had to chuckle at the thought of that sitcom - but not funny to experience when you have paid so much.
    Hope you had fun at the duck race.

  6. Morning Clare, I can't believe you had that appalling service at the Hotel, and for the cost it was definitely not acceptable, what a 'let down'.
    I hope your Boxing Day duck race was a success, and that the rest of your holiday goes well !!
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  8. Good morning Clare. OMG! I've just seen your photograph. As you say it wouldn't be hard to better that! Do hope your Boxing Day went well and wish you well for the remainder of the holidays. Take care.

  9. Good heavens dear girl- I cold not for the life of me imagine even allowing this kind of presentation to be left in front of me for more than five seconds! How awful! Not even enough pride in their cuisine to wipe the debris off the rim. Peanut butter and strawberry preserves sounds great right about now. Enjoy your dinner at home. HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you and yours!

What a week!

Happy Friday everyone
If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!   
I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-) 

As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the  Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love.

The first tag was inked lightly all over wi…

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall section that h…
