Couple of weeks down the line ...........

So I have been working at Katz for a couple of weeks now and it's going well.
I don't regret my decision to leave the shop as it was long over due.

Any way Mum is back in hospital - this time with a broken hip. A complete replacement was required and she also had a build up of toxins to deal with. So all in all its been a little hectic here.

I have not crafted at all but with the promise of nice weather this weekend that could all change

Below is a love heart card from a while ago - hope you like x x x

Feeling like a newbie :-(

So my second day and i just felt like I was asking stupid questions all day. Then I made a daft mistake which meant things got delayed so all in all I felt silly.
Still I know not what to do on Thurs that's for sure!

No crafting done today but below is a cupcake birthday card which I made a couple of weeks ago. Stitched again with perforated paper and took no time at all to make x x

New Girl

Yes I started my new job for real today and early signs are that I am going to like it. My only reservations are during holiday time but we will see what happens.

Anyway yesterday I organised what cards I will need for the next couple of months and obviously as Fathers Day is coming up the weekend I realised I needed to create. I didn't have time to stitch anything but came up with the design below using scraps of patterned paper.
I do really like them and may actually use this design a little more.

Well Thursday was my last shift at the shoe shop and for some reason I am not as overjoyed as I thought I would be.
Now don't get me wrong I have soooo made the right decision but I am left with this sense of sadness at leaving a place where I have worked for 7 years.

Anyhoo tomorrow is my first day at Katz and I am looking forward to it. I need a change of scene, plus more regular hours and no weekend working and this so fits in!!
So this weekend I have been getting everything in the house straight so that I can get into a routine ASAP. I don't start work till 9.30 so I can get a few bits done before I go.

So Clare what crafting have you done recently? Well not much to be fair, which is not a good thing. However, I did stitch a 60th birthday card for my dad (which I forgot to take a pic of - doh!!!!) and I have been messing around with a couple of simple designs for quick cards. The first one is the new home card pictured below
It is stitched using perforated paper and some remnants of thread and hey presto!!!!!!!
