Not cards?

Good afternoon blogworld on this my last day of daytime freedom for six weeks!!

You think I've been a bad blogger recently - just you wait and see, I'm going to get even worse!

SWMbO breaks up for the school holidays today and so I won't have much time to myself at all now - she's already got visits with friends, days out, swimming, bowling, pizza and so on planned!  I've said it before and I'll no doubt say it again - she's got a busier social life than I do!

So this partly to say apologies in advance for what will be, I know, an almost total lack of blogging but also a sort of I'm proud of myself type post.

I'm sure I've said this before as well - I'm not a very outgoing sort of person.  People worry me!  But I've been incredibly brave and booked myself a stall to sell my cards at a local village fete - whether any cards sell remains to be seen.  But I've done it and now all I've got to do is actually get there!

I thought just cards on the stall would be a bit boring - so I'm branching out.  Waddaya think?

Small bookmark

Larger personalised bookmark (guess who this is for!)

Bagged for selling and showing how they look in a book

I've got 5 small wiggly ones and 5 large which are a combo of dolphins, mermaids and hearts/ flowers.

Hubby says about a fiver each - I'm not sure.

So if I don't come on in a panic before, think of me on the 16th August!  I will be panicking then!!!

Whatever you do over the summer - hope you have a nice time and see you in September.

Love and marriage...

Good morning blogworld, and marriage, goes together like a horse and carriage.
This I tell you brother, you can't have one without the other

All singing along yet?  I know I am!!

So there I'm waffling along - have you missed it?  Probably not, eh!!  I think it's the countdown to the school hols that's frying my brain, only three days left to go! Panic, panic, panic!

Anyways shall I stop going do-lally and tell you why I'm really here?  It's because it's Monday and a new challenge over at The Cutie Pies, which if you haven't guessed yet, is all about love and marriage!  So we'd like to see your cutest projects for love and / or marriage.

We're sponsored this time by:

And that's it folks.

Got a busy day today - first off it's SWMbO sports day at school, then she's going on a 'lads, lassies and Dads' picnic walk with daddy after school then we're going to a Brownies taster session in the evening as she'll be starting there in September. 

Will be a sad day - no more Rainbows - she's been going for two years and will miss it, but she is looking forward to Brownies thankfully.

Only left to say please pop on over to the challenge - you'll love it there, if you're into cuteness.

See you soon,
