NANCI GRIFFITH / THIS HEART - Directed by Rocky Schenck

Love this song. Bet it gets your toes tapping

Busy Busy Busy

I have been a little lax yet again but this time I have good reason. I've actually been really busy. I've actually had to do some work at work, its the end of the year so on top of the monthly reports for different committees there's the pulling together of annual reports and time to match the GP's with appraisers for the forthcoming year and send out all the letters, no mean fete I may add.

Weekends have been busy too. Saturday before last, MP and I went to see Loves Labours Lost by the excellent Northern Broadsides at the Viaduct Theatre in Halifax.

The theatre is in the cellar of one of the mill buildings which forms part of the complex I am lucky enough to work in. Its a very unusual theatre, not just due to the location. In amongst the underground arches is a tiny wooden stage and the seating either side of it, so no matter where you sit, you are right on the action.

Then on the Sunday, my Dad and I went to the Lowry theatre Salford to see the fabulous Nanci Griffith. We are long standing fans of Nanci and have seen her over half a dozen times over the years and she was great, her voice is still as good as ever and the audience sang along to some of her classic songs.

This weekend MP has been Mr DIY. He very kindly put up my bookcase my Dad bought me for my birthday and the shelves he bought me. To do this I had to clear out my crafting corner and the problem now is ............... I can't get all my stuff back in! Incredible how much stuff one acquires :o) So until its sorted I can't do any crafting.

Here is my lovely little crafting corner with it's new additions

Tall bookcase from Dad

Shelves from MP

Lets see how long it stays this tidy.

Well back to sorting and wrapping ribbons round card, till next time.

How Old?

I had a lovely Birthday on Monday, not even spoilt by the fact I had to go to work, although I do think there should be a law against that or a statutory requirement on employers to give you the day off.

My Dad bought me a new Expedit book case to house my ever expanding crafting stash and MP bought me some matching shelves for the wall above my craft table. I also got a cookery book and some chocolates off my Dad and an i-tunes voucher off MP. My mate Top Totty bought me some really cool vintage stickers and my very talented mate Kathb gave me a covered journal, the cover she made herself. So impressed am I that I had to take a photo ........

How cool is this and how clever is Kath? Thank you so much for all my presents, the many facebook birthday wishes and all in all a lovely birthday x

I also bought myself a little something ........ red tulips. I love tulips, they have to be my favourite flowers and always a sign that Spring is on its way and red are my favourite.

Harley looking cute and pretending he isn't about to eat the tulips.

I am currently taking part in an art journal cj over on UKScrappers. I forgot to take a picture of my first entry but here is my entry to the positivity cj.

All done with Dylusions sprays, Mister Huey's sprays and distress inks.

Right off to do a bit of scrapping before bed. There are some more really good challenges out there this week and I plan to do at least two this week and get them posted as soon as possible. So Good night all x
