Phew Another Challenge

So here is my 5th challenge for the Wight Craft Circle I have altered a clipboard by covering it with some lovely K and Co papers some Ribbon and a lovely prima I swirly thing lol I had a bit of trouble trying to decide whether to use it as a noticeboard or as a layout so I went with the layout but with the option of being able to change the picture if I so desire.
I have put it up in my studio above my new little shelves purchased from Ikea this week with my little jars on.
I went to the NEC in Birmingham this week for the Hobbycraft show with my American lady friends we had a great time had thought about doing a Stash Brag but thought I had better not or I would be so in trouble with all my friends for the amount of Stash I have lol.

I decided that I would put a picture of Matt and I on the board as all I need to do is look up and I can see my Matthew looking down at me smiling lol he hated going to Olan Mills to have our pictures taken we had a family portrait done there as well it was quite a few years ago I must say, I found the picture under a pile of books by the side of my bed so decided that it would be so much nicer to have it out to look at.

Ok so I have finally given in to all the nagging that I have been getting about posting more pics of my pride and joy THE LITTLE BLUE HUT I love it love it love it and I certainly love spending time out there it is the most relaxing place in the world for me and all my friends seem to love it too which is great as you can see here this is how I am storing some of my ribbon on dolly pegs in this basket thing I got for £5.99 from homebase cheap as chips as they say lol and obviously had to get a pic of my lovely PINK yes I said PINK cuttlebug lol. Now this picture is of the area behind me as you can see I have a few new purchases sat around in that are which need putting somewhere only where is the rapidly asking question in my mind lol I am dreading to think what else I will be purchasing at the NEC next week to adorn my STUDIO Shirley !
Oh god and this is more pictures of more purchases of my ever increasing and worrying addiction to Longaberger baskets I love love love them and I cannot stop purchasing them which is a worry as they are really quite expensive I have bought some of the lovely wrought iron hanging things that they do to put baskets on they are in the picture above one is in the box and other other is sat to the right with a little tea basket on it is so cute I am thinking that some of these are going to make it into the house as the look so lovely and will be great for hiding rubbish in lol, you know bills you dont want to look at, children and various other items to be found around the home lol.

Now this is where the magic happens lol, did I just say that, yep I sure did lol this is where I sit and mull away my time trying to decide what I am going to make and how I am going to start I love sitting here looking out at the window and seeing my chickens running around and the dogs occasionally Matt pops his head in and makes me laugh and Euan loves to come in and make something fab with me its a great place to have some me time and I love sitting there listening to music and willing away the hours how bad am I. I am really looking forward to showing it off to my great friend Paige and her friends from the Isle of Wight who are hopefully going to come over for a weekend of cropping fun.

So to the end of this epic post and this is the layout for the Wight Craft Circle challenge this week I hope it fits the bill ladies I really need some lessons in taking pics when you girls get over here lol maybe I might be better off asking the guru himself though the lovely Trav xxxx Hope you have enjoyed having a look around my STUDIO ladies take care .

And Again lol

Ok so this is my next isle of wight challenge thingy to do a layout using 4 photos
its a nightmare lol but I will carry on blogging girls I promise.
I have had a fab week have been out shopping with Miss Lisa to get Bunco prizes and have been to lunch with my good friend Mrs W and have even found time to do some crafting with Mel in The Little Blue Hut its been great fun .
Dont die of shock everyone I even showed up at work this week for the first time in ages and done a full day the boys were in shock cheeky devils. Might even go in tomorrow just to confuse them lol.
Am loving blogging again cant think why I dont keep it up really as its quite nice to put your thoughts down on paper and of course I love going around reading everyone elses blog.
Had a sad thought today its been six months now since Mark was killed and its still as painful as it was on the day it happened for me I dread to think how my sister must feel I wonder when it will get better god knows we have the inquest to look forward to next month maybe after that lets hope.
On a brighter note I applied to go on Deal or No Deal this week will keep you updated as to whether or not I get on I cant wait probably wont happen though as I am far to normal lol.
Take care Blogland will be back soon xxxxx
