running around after 3yr old twins lol

Well not been so good at keeping updated have I lol

Today I have been babysitting my friends 3yr old twins which as you can imagine isnt easy lol but we played in the garden and I got a bit of sun which turne dout to be a bit more than I thought when I got home and saw the colour of me :) they were fine they had factor 50 on topped up at regular intervals all time they were outside and hats etc

have been making christmas cards  this last couple of weeks as I usually end up on last minute and do a lot for charity so trying to keep in front this year x

I have 18th birthday cards to do for twins (the older set to the ones I babysit) for friday but am all out of ideas at the moment Jake should be fairly easy as he is into guitars and rock music so thats not too bad but his sister Heather is a different matter. Its all big birthdays in their house this year as mum and dad are both 40 this year xxx

right im off to bed I think all this activity today and the sun has worn me out lol x

crafting

Well  im back online as been paid lol so topped up dongle today
It seems knitting has taken over for now lol. I have almost finished 3 mascot dolls apart from sewing up and stuffing them anyway. 2 are for my friends twins and the other was just because I had plenty of red and white so decided to do Santa lol when all are finished I will post pics
I did make some birthday cards for some friends and do have 1 more to make for the end of the month and made some quick cards at my craft club last week. We were provided with a topper and a card and had to finish with papers embellishments etc any papers we needed if not in our stash box we could pick from the shop and the club would pay for at end of session so that was funhere are the pics








 
wish I knew how to rotate the pictures and put them next to each other so they take up less room they dont do justice to the glitter but I have tried to show it also I used sparkly chalk brushed lightly over top and glossy accents on the gorjuss girls eyes and ribbons hope you like them
