And here they are..Thursday 9th September:
I tend to stay up way too late during the week - scrapping, card-making, blogging, reading blogs (am I alone in this..?). It's all very well if you manage to get to sleep promptly when you do get to bed.. but not so great if you then take hours to doze off. When Harry trotted in at 6.15am on Tuesday morning, I was awake.. and I thought to myself, 'I swear I have not actually been asleep yet!'
So after three nights of little-to-no sleep, by Thursday evening I felt pretty rotten.. and an early night was essential - particularly as I had my card-making class on the Friday morning..Friday 10th September:
- Ink pads will get contaminated
- Wood-mounted stamps will get inky
- Stamping mistakes will be made.. and hence more pre-cut pieces of Very Vanilla cardstock will be needed
- You will get through more foam pads than you thought possible
- Unless you put your sample cards in cellophane bags, they will also get inky (see above..)
Information all filed away for next time..Saturday 11th September:
Well, what could be nicer than a bit of scrapbooking on a wet, miserable Saturday afternoon? While I was busy sticking buttons to Thursday's page, the boys decided to get in on the act.
At first they played really nicely with a handful of buttons each, making patterns on the table, counting, sorting.. then Harry decided to tip the whole jar on the table and drive his little truck through them. Before long, though, buttons were flying in all directions.. Absolutely everywhere! Impossible to be mad at the little scamps, the buttons did look so pretty scattered around the dining room, and they did help pick them all up again!
Right then.. you know what? I'm off to bed! Night night..
