Teal Delights - Crafts Beautiful - Christmas Special 2011

I thought I'd share with you a set of four of my designs in a project called Teal Delights featured in the latest issue (along with full instructions and templates) of Crafts Beautiful (Christmas Special 2011). If you like fresh, bold and contemporary designs, then have a go at making these! For more crafting ideas visit Crafts Beautiful

I still haven't got round to getting any more Christmas cards made, other things just seem to keep cropping up and I do get distracted quite easily!

Simon and I had a nice day out on Saturday. We had a run to Taverham Crafts and Garden Centre. I (of course) had to have browse around Sew Simple (massive craft shop). We had some lunch in the lovely Craft Tearooms and then visited the aquatic shop to buy some more Koi food.

There is a fantastic little shop called Country Corner. If you love American Folk style goodies, then this shop is heaven. Plus, they sell Yankee Candles (I adore Yankee Candles) so a stock up was needed.  Oooh! and not forgetting the chocolate shop called Saffire, where they make and sell the most wonderful choccies. I resisted temptation and didn't call in this time! It was nice to have a day out together and have a bit of lunch.

If you ever visit Norfolk, then Taverham Craft and Garden Centre is worth a look. Taverham is just outside of Norwich and has much more than what I've just mentioned. Well, must crack on, things to do, people to see etc. Bye for now xx

I think I'm up and running!

If you are reading this, then I have managed to successfully set up a blog. I will hopefully be posting my designs from Crafts Beautiful in the near future.
After sitting here setting this up for the last few hours, I'm going to have something to eat and then crack on with some cards I need to do.

Time to get motivated me thinks. Ta ta for now.
