DCM - Doodle Dare.

Better late than never - and talk about feeling the presure. With Rhi telling everyone I'm the doodle queen :?,I got doodle block, but I do love to doodle-do.

Did a quick card this morning. I used (for the first time), the extra QK dies that are with the Sunshine Alphabet - they are just screaming out to be doodled.

UKS Cyber Crop.***Edit***

Well the best laid plans ......
I had been planning to Scrap all weekend at the UKS CC, but got side tracked by my ikkle craft studio - (did I mention I love it?);D, so only managed 1 class, and it was Little Cottage (Tracie) class. I loved the class and I love the finished Lippy Chick book. Thanks for a great class Bob. Not done the cover yet.

I've edited this post to add a link for the Lippy Chick Book that Tracie used for her CC class. They are available from Tracie's Little Cottage Crafts and are fabby to work with. The squares are 5x5 and fold up into a plastic wallet.

Little Cottage

James Bond

Went to the cinema today with the guys to see the new James Bond.
It was fab - Daniel Craig is a real dirty JB. His hair got toozied when he was fighting and everything. :D

Badge of the Week.

All crafters can relate to this .... :D

New Studio.

Sorry I've been MIA (Missing in Action), this week ...... but ..... my new Craft Studio has been taking up all my time this week - and weekend. I have not done this weeks challenge or little extra at DCM. Missed all the UKS CC classes (I have started Tracie's class) - I hope to get the rest done before long.

So you want to see some pix ..... ?

I'm really chuffed to bits with it, DH has done a great job. Just have to get some more shelves up and that should be it .... :D.

Witch Verdi.

Right you snotty lot, the first person I hear sniggering will be turned into a wart incrusted toad ........ ribbit-ribbit.

My son is off sick and how do I spend the day between emptying the sick bowl 8? ........ making a witchy hat for my Hogwarts School photo ...... along with black tooth and Hugo my pet spider, hehehehe!!!!! I am wearing my house colours (green) - but the picture is better in B&W. Hehehe - should I be feeling guilty that I am not at work ...... and am sitting here giggling like a spotty Muggle :D

LCC Challenge.

I also did a frame for the LCC Challenge this week. It's a picture of my Niece to give to my sister as a gift for her Christmas. It took me so long to add all those glass beads but it was worth it.

LCC Friday Night Challenge.

I have a day off today - DS has the lurgie, he got it from me :/ - and I'm ashamed to say - yay, I have a day off ... ;)

I couldn't decide what to do for the LCC Challenge this week. I had a few false starts. My radio has Sugar Hot, Blonde Moments paint all over it .... I had a yucky old plant pot from the garden nothing was giving me the vibe.

I then found the ikkle tin that Tracie send during the LCC CC full of yummy sweets, so promptly ate the goodies and made a sewing tin.

Badge of the Week.

It been over 2 weeks since I have made a commission card, I have been turning down all orders - and I am loving the break. Every card I have made has been for fun. So with all the great Dares and Challenges I am really enjoying crafting for the first time in ages...... :D.

The return of the Domestic Goddess ....... yeah right.

I bought a recipie book this week - cakes and bakes - yum.
Sent S off to the supermarket with a list of ingredients and spent a bit of time in the kitchen making Chocolate Crunchies - they are yummy.

If you fancy the recipie let me know and I'll add it to the blog.
