Just Catchin' Up

Our American visitors have caught their flight back to Atlanta today. It's been a blast having them over here and we've all thoroughly enjoyed their visit but I am cream crackered! I am far too old for going out so much and I just want to crawl in a hole somewhere and sleep for the rest of the week. I guess the 3 bottles of champagne we downed on Sunday night didn't help much either!
So I now have a mountain of washing and ironing to work my way through this week, and I need to try and catch up with all my emails and go blog visiting.

I want to do a little shout out to my lovely Sugar Bowl buddy Erika "A very Happy Birthday today Sweetie, I hope you have a fab day and are treated like a proper little Princess", and also the very sweet Cathy who's birthday is also today, "Happy Birthday Cathy, I hope your day is a special one".

My ink carousel is all nicely stocked up now and in action and Martin has decided to make some and see what the market is like (thank you for everyones input) so if anyone wants anymore information they are available on Ebay HERE or on Folksy HERE.

I've only just realised that I didn't do a candy in May...I was all candied out after the party bags! So I need to try and think of something different to offer up..any ideas would be appreciated! Is there anything in particular you would really love to see in a blog candy?

For those of you who don't know what's in Grimsby - or rather Tetney which is home to the very lovely Jill owner of The Hobby House and my first port of call for paper. I always have a good stock up on papers when I see Jill at the Harrogate shows, so this time I am going to visit her at the shop. I am so excited!!!

Lastly, for those of you who haven't nodded off yet zzzzzzzzzzzz

A blog candy that came to my attention...but you need not bother to enter this one cos I NEED to win this!
I love the colours and all the papers yum yum.
But seeing as I am so nice then if you pop over HERE you can enter the candy.

Ok, I'm off to tackle the washing.
Thanks for looking
Love Elaine xxx

    so pleased you had such a good time with your visitors from over the pond. Like you I am now doing catch up with ironing/cleaning etc etc, I just don't know why those dust fairies make such a bee- line for our house. Thanks for letting us know what/who is in Grimsby.
