At last. ...

Finally, I can have a breather!

Yesterday was a very busy day, so today I'm taking it easy and doing some of the usual chores around the house - this includes washing!! YAY... I have a washer that works!

Our old washer, well not particularly old at 6 years, decided to break the other week and not wash, so the repair man came out (thank heavens for extra warranty - we've needed it this last few years!) and got it going, only for it to break again a couple of days later. Well, enough was enough and I said to hubby that if it stopped again I was buying another. So - off we went to buy another! lol.

It got delivered yesterday and I've just put my first lot of washing through it. It has a timer on and everything to say when it's going to finish. Dead cool!

Now I've finished waffling, I have a couple of little projects to share with you all. Now I have to say that I didn't take these photographs, I have borrowed them off Monica's site for now.

Last Friday, I went to a SU Training event held over in Carlton, with my SU mummy, the lovely Monica. We made two projects, a box and a card.

This is the card,

Isn't it lovely. I must it's inspired me to buy this stamp set that we used, it's so lovely. The kits were all ready for us, we just had to do the punching and stamping.

Here is the box that we made. I love little bags and boxes, and this one was no exception - apart from the fact it was making my Wish List a little longer!!

Isn't this just the cutest?? I absolutely love the little ghosty.

The box itself was totally designed by Monica, isn't she a clever little bunny? The new Word Window punch has been used for the handle.

I can see me making lots of these little boxes for Halloween, because when it comes to everyone coming round on that evening, I like to have everything individual rather than grubby, halloweeny hands delving into a pot of sweeties.. lol.

Well. That's it from me for now.. Happy crafting!
