I like this Monday!

Hello friends
Do we feel out of sync with days?  A Bank Holiday always does that to me!

How did your Easter Sunday go?
The boys did me proud when it came to chocolate!
I think I'm going to have to regulate my Buttons intake a little!

Now to share a further decorated egg, this one was from last year.
I used Foliage cut from felt and Classic Scalloped Ovals.
I kept with the traditional Cadbury purple :)
Gillian has created a beautiful birdhouse - great idea with the chocolate bunny!
Thank you for sending the photo, please always feel free to send photos along to me,
(as long as you don't mind me sharing them with Blogger-land and Facebook).
I love to see all your 'makes'.

Other news, after quite a lot of requests - I've managed to source some pretty beaded ribbon:
It measures 8mm wide and inset with clear rhinestones.
Sold in 1 metre lengths and available here.

Today I am at the shop creating, I've got quite a lot of assignments to get through -
it's tough this craft work you know...! ;) Good job I love it!
Take care friends and enjoy your day.

Wow thats a lot of chocolate buttons. Regulating intake would be hard for me, a little voice in my head always says "just one more" and I was brought up to do as I'm told! Enjoy. JuliaT x

Morning Christine,
That's an awful lot of buttons, I wonder how long they will last you, your boys know just what you like.
Love the birdhouse and the egg cover both very pretty.

Hi Christine. Yes, bank holidays always throw me out too : ) Weren't you lucky getting all of those chocolate buttons, anyone would think that you like them he he. I love your Egg cover and Gillians birdhouse, both are very pretty. The beaded ribbon is gorgeous, I'm not always a fan of rhinestones but this looks lovely. Take care.

Hello Christine
I am making the most of this bank holiday as I have to go back to work after 2 weeks holiday from work :( But on a positive note only 2 more weeks before the next bank holiday Monday - May Day!
Loving the egg box and the 'bird' house. Also like the look of the new rhinestone trim - you just can't beat a bit of bling can you?
Enjoy your chocolate and the Bank holiday

Morning Christine, I did well with chocolate too, which is hard when I'm trying not to put weight on.

Have a great Bank Holiday, and enjoy your crafting.

Hi Christine. Had a 'cracking' Easter Sunday. I do find it hard to get back in sync after the Easter break, more so than any other, as it is a four-dayer! Love your purple egg box and Gillian's bunny house. Enjoy your crafty day I'm having one too.

Hide that stash of chocolate buttons and ration yourself to one pack per day!!!

Hello Christine. That's it. No more chocolate for me for a while. I overdid it yesterday and felt bad (morally not physically). At least the little packets can be rationed out on a daily basis. Lovely bunny house. Hope today's been super productive. xxMargaretxx

Hi Christine, yummy chocolate and the purple kind too which in my opinion is the best. Enjoy it.
I was in the garden today until it rained - ah well I suppose we had a half day of nice weather on a bank holiday.
