Stocking Fillers


Morning Fluffers :)


You know how much I love my penguins, right? I was playing with these cuties from Some Odd Girl the other day, and this is what happened. Perhaps not the most mind blowing of creations, but I had fun. And before you get excited, they're going to live with Kitty at My Mum's Craft Shop. My Christmas card tally is still at zero, zilch, nuffin. How many days are left anyway? Loads, I expect...


Earlier this week, I needed to get a haircut. Due to the fact it's now winter, even though I'm still waiting for an Indian Summer, I was wearing gloves. Obviously, not in the hairdressers, that'd just be odd, but while I was scurrying around town, trying to find a yellow jumper for Sweet Cheeks to wear to school on Friday for Roald Dhal Day.  Whilst scurrying, I noticed the scratchy feeling I should be feeling around my wrist because of my treasured opal bracelet/ glove combo, was not in fact, feeling scratchy. Oh. Insert appropriate word here.


I was so upset, I could have cried on the spot. But, before I threw my rattle at the nearest passer by, I thought I'd best retrace my steps quick. By the time I got back to the hairdressers, which was the first place I'd been, I'd resigned myself to the fact it was gone and I was in mighty big trouble with Very Understanding Hubby, who'd bought it for me. You can imagine my relief when I saw it on the floor by the till. And I kid you not, when I say me collecting said treasure, was like a slow motion rugby dive styley tackle!

Oh cute with a capital P!

Glad you found your bracelet - I left me engagement and wedding rings in a loo once. Was within a couple of months of getting married and I didn't realise they'd gone for quite awhile! Read almost all day there!

Luckily it was a works training day so we were in the same building all day - went back to the loo and there they were. Lucky!! I think hubby might've had some choice words if I'd lost them that soon after getting married! Don't think he'd notice now ;-)

Have a good weekend.

Lovely penguin card and tag, Fluff! New die? Smuggled in? You should start making two of every card you make for MMCS and keep one version for your own needs! Good idea, wot?
Brilliant that you found your bracelet. Perhaps you should take it to a jeweller and ask for a safety chain to be added. Hugs, Lesley
