Firstly, I won this lovely prize from Sarah:
See those scrummy Bo Bunny papers on the right hand side? Well, you certainly will soon, because I've earmarked them for my Me: The Abridged Version album :-) The co-ordinating giant alpha stickers may or may not be pressed into service too, but the papers are totally going in!! And can you spy the overlays? My first EVER overlays?! The flowers are lovely, the owls are so cute and that green swirl is just completely gorgeous :-) Plus, some fabby samples of Stampin' Up! products which will soon be making their way onto cards - and (get this!) Sarah sent ME a thank you card for entering!! When it's clearly my role to be very, very grateful here. Sarah, thank you :-)
And also, I won something lovely from Abi:
I can't wait to play with the oil pastels (in the mean time I've had lots of fun just sorting them into little jars according to their colour!) and oh, the colours of those dinky inkpads.... Love pinks and greens right now!! And I rather think they may match some of the Bo Bunny papers, result! And Abi tucked some pretty sequins, ribbons and blossoms into the package too - aren't they FAB? Abi - thank you, thank you! I was so pleased that The Boy picked you as one of my winners, it's such a good symmetry that I can now give you something back :-)
And then, going even further back.... *blush!* furrypig kindly passed on to me a blog award while I was on holiday. Since then, as I've failed to actually get it onto my blog, several other people have also passed it on to me! Thank you, then, to furrypig, and also to Sandi, to Deb and (again) to Abi :-) Please don't think that the delay in mentioning this award in any way reflects a lack of gratitude, as I am so touched, humbled and happy that you picked me!
So, now for a few random things about me:
- I'm not keen on feet (especially my own). I do wear sandals but much prefer my toes to be covered, thank you. I love shoes - but not the peep-toe kind! (I got some cool new shoes last week, by the way. Must share a pic some time soon.)
- I'll be sleeping on the sofa tonight. (So will The Doctor - we haven't fallen out, it's just that his parents are visiting and we've given them our room!)
- I'm hoping to get a new camera soon!! (Woo hoo!!) We need to replace and upgrade the point and shoot; I'm looking into digital SLR options!! (Woo hoo!!) Not sure when it'll be (we need to save up after the holiday) but definitely by Christmas, I think. I hope!!
