Hello friends

A photo heavy blog post today.
First off, I had a lovely time yesterday at Keep on Crafting in Bury St Edmunds.
Thank you to Mandy who owns the shop, always lovely to catch up.
And many thanks to everyone who came along.
Here I am...doing 'my thing'!!
Please take a good look at the photo....look right, just above the sample books...
a bowl of strawberries!!  Not cake or biscuits!
It was a healthy demo.
 I'm out and about again next weekend - Crafts U Love, Charlwood, Surrey
so please come along if you can. It's the shop's 9th Birthday so lots going on...

Don't forget you can keep track of where I am on my tour on the website here.
My SatNav has never been used so much!

Other news...
if you didn't catch Bella on Facebook, here she is groomed!
What a difference, she went from Chewbacca to a meerkat.
We very nearly convinced Mitchell's girlfriend that we had collected a different dog, 
a boy dog called Sebastian!
She did see through out silly humour...eventually!
And lastly, my woodland cabin at dusk, I love this place - I'm considering putting a
camp bed in there so I don't ever have to leave! 24/7 crafting. 
So that's my newsy, photo post today - proper craft tomorrow.

Take care friends.

Morning Christine
Pleased you had a good day, fab samples on your table and great photos of Bella and your cabin!
I see you have two Artbin magnetic storage boxes! I have one with quite a few added sets of magnetic sheets. They are brilliant for storing individual dies, and must be absolutely perfect for a travelling crafter like you!
Enjoy your day.

Morning Christine, Lovely, lovely piccies, especially the transformation of Bella, she looks gorgeous in the 'before' but in the 'after' she is stunning.
Glad you had a good demo day.
I'm loving your piccie of your woodland cabin with lights at dusk, it looks fabulous, no wonder you don't want to leave it hahaha.
We had torrential downpours early this morning, thankfully it is trying to be nice now, hope it keeps off for my trip back and forth to Church !!!!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hello Christine,

So sorry I have not commented of late I have been so busy doing samples I have not had time.

Looks like it was a fabulous demo and strawberries yum yum! Love the photos of Bella I remember our dear Yorkshire Terrier Suki, she used to look like a drowned rat when washed and so tiny once her hair had been cut, I still miss her dearly, we had her for 13 years bless her.

Your cabin looks so inviting with all the lights, so pretty.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend

Love & Hugs

Hello Christine
Great photos today. You look very busy in Bury St Edmunds.
Bella once again looks very stylish with her hair cut. I know how she feels, I am off to be tamed on Friday - I can barely see where I am going too!
I love your cabin and am sooo jealous. We are struggling for space at home and that idea has been discussed several times with my hubby. All I can say is watch this space.
Enjoy your Sunday

Maureen Killen said...

Hello Christine,
I love your photographs and have to say that I need Bella's groomer big time. I thought I was looking at a photo of myself for a moment lol!!!!
Also, I WANT your cabin, no I NEED your cabin, it's wonderful, I don't blame you for not wanting to leave it. Please can you wrap it up and post it to me!
I'm glad you had a successful day demonstrating.

Aaah, Bella and Sebastian that well-loved children's story (well almost) - I remember it well. She really does look like a different dog, but not a boy dog! Love the photos in today's post and your cabin does look cosy after dark.

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Christine
Love the photos you've posted. Mind you Bella does look like a different dog doesn't she.

Elaine said...

Fabulous array of demo cards and the cabin looks amazing. Bella too x

LyndA said...

Poor Bella. I'm sorry but I prefer the older version :-( Not as hygenic but definately more characterful! Grow back soon :-)

karenlotty said...

Lovely photos Bella does look so different! Bless her I love the look of your cabin my crafty room is my son's old bedroom but I have to share with other stuff like fancy dress, a futon that's now covered in card and paper, book cases and the like It's like an obstacle course to get to my desk!

Bea said...

hi Christine great pics - Bella looks so cute with her haircut and your cabin looks like a really peaceful holiday home - enjoy :)

Mrs B said...

Hi Christine. I'm back again now my lap top is behaving! What a lot of gorgeous cards you have shared with us over the last couple of weeks, I did enjoy seeing them all : )
It looks like you had a great time yesterday at Keep on Crafting and made lots of beautiful cards. I bet there weren't any strawberries left by the end of the day though : )
Bella does look like a different dog after her haircut so I'm not surprised that you almost fooled Mitchell's girlfriend : )
Your cabin looks fantastic, you lucky thing, I don't blame you for wanting to stay in it : )
I hope you and all of the family are well. Have a good day. Take care xx
