Good morning guys and gals. Hope you are keeping warm and well in this new cold snap.
The birds have been regular visitors to the table for munchies and we have been getting through 2 fat balls each week (Maureen . . . . .No!!!).
Myself and Nesta like to put out mealworms but they were getting quite expensive so I found a pet shop on eBay that did 5kg for a bargain price with free delivery, so we decided to order and split them. It seemed like a good idea at the time, not having much idea how much room they would take up. . . . . . .I knew all those empty Roses, Heroes and Celebration tubs I'd kept over the years would eventually have a use lol!!!
I like to make sure that they have a nice little buffet, fat balls, nuts, mealworms, grapes, blueberries and seeds. . . . . . . come to think of it, they're probably better fed than we are lol!!!
The reward has been a beautiful pair of plump Mistle Thrushes joining the regular diners. I'm hoping to get a photo but they always turn up, when my camera is in another room.
Anyhoo, there's me twittering on (sorry, couldn't resist) when I should be saying welcome to Maggie and thank you for following. Also, Karen, on my last post with the poinsettias, I inked through the die with Versamark and brushed with gold mica to get the veins on the bracts.
Now, warning . . . . . . photo heavy Christmas post. I thought that I would show you some of what I affectionately call my "lick and stick" cards that were ultra quick batch makes for less near and dear friends and acquaintances.
I decided to get stuck into the pile of abandoned Hunkydory kits and mixed and matched with other bits and pieces in my stash.
Can't believe how quick these were to make so I shall be using them again later in the year.
Perhaps not as exciting as the whistles and bells of fancy die cuts, but still a useful addition to the Christmas shelf, especially for the likes of me, who is not as disciplined as some of you guys who do Christmas all year round.
Hope you don't mind seeing something simpler than usual. Normal die cut service will resume on the next post lol!!!
Still up and down with me at the moment. Having interrupted sleep is what's wearing me down at the moment as lack of sleep can make the condition worse, yet its the condition that's causing the lack of sleep . . . . . .definition of vicious circle or what lol!!! Maureen, I've been diagnosed but its getting the treatment right that's proving difficult.
Oh well, onwards and upwards (said the gynaecologist to the actress).
Don't forget, you have until Saturday to comment on my 400th post here, to be in the draw for a paddle prize.
Have a great day and be good.
