AWOL yet again

Morning everybody sorry I have been out of action for a little while have been plagued by my Fibromyalgia massive flair up still not completely right but am getting there.

We are having the decorators in today to wallpaper one wall of the living room and then next week the painters will be here to paint the three living room walls and the hallway including around 8 doors that need glossing have decided to go for an acrylic satin white on the doors and frames as Alan is allergic to gloss paint suffers severe migraines from the fumes that it gives off.

I was asked if I could make a horseshoe for my neighbours granddaughter who is getting married the first week of June and this is what I came up with

I used my silhouette cameo to cut the horseshoe out and also the leaves I then decorated it with flowers I ordered from a girl on facebook who has a page called Petal Lu they are so pretty and are made out of tissue paper and the spiral's were from the Ribbon Girl.

I have another craft fair again this weekend in Exmouth which is quite a drive from here but Alan is coming with me and Sarah is staying home to look after Bella as Sarah's friend is coming from London for the long weekend.

Hope you all have a great bank holiday weekend will pop along shortly to check out your blogs but I will only be commenting on today's blog as I have been absent for too long to even think about catching up where I left off will be here until midnight else.

Love to all
