Morning all

Hi Everybody

Hope you are all well, hugs to those that need them. It's Friday yippee that means hopefully Rachel and I will be crafting tomorrow afternoon, can't wait.   It's also my birthday on Sunday not sure yet what is happening, probably be going out for a meal.  I would like a new sewing machine but don't think finances will run to that so might just ask for some vouchers for hobby-craft or something like that.

I have lots of projects on the go and seriously need to get to grips with everything and try to finish one thing before starting another, have about 6 sewing projects on the go, commissioned party invitations, commissioned candles, and need to make candles for the next craft fair that comes up, also our youngest Granddaughter Jessica will be 18 in April and she has asked if she can have a sweet table and wants me to do the labels in black and pink.  I also need to make some more soap one more batch and then I will have 24 soaps in all the fragrances that I am allowed to sell, unless I want to pay for more to be added to my safety assessment.  I also have 24 ready to be boxed so must make the boxes for them as well. so busy busy busy.

I have a couple of cards to show you today that have been commissioned I used bugaboo images which I love for the humour so glad the person that these are for has a good sense of humour.

 First card is from me to Ray whose birthday will be on 7th March

This one is from his wife Sheila 

This is a sample to send out for approval before making the full size candles 
I have used for the first time water-slide decal papers, must say I am really impressed with this stuff much better than tissue paper

I have to pop into Ivybridge shortly as I need to go the post office to post this little candle and also one of my spiral candles and some soap, I also want to buy some more dress making scissors as mine are so blunt.

Will catch up with everybody a bit later when I get back from Ivybridge.

Love to all
