absent without leave .....

..... it's been ages since I last blogged. Do I have an excuse? Most certainly ..... I've been sidetracked by Otis who is, quite simply, the most huggable, loveable time waster that I've ever met. I've been spending my afternoons curled up on the sofa with him, watching TV while he sleeps next to me ......


However, I've managed to get back into the creative swing of things and have been spending more time in my craft room (of course, now with a delightful furry puppy helper!). This week I was asked to make bunting to decorate the front of a craft stall:


I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed making bunting ..... but now that I've remembered, I shall be making a lot more. I'm planning on making some for some special birthdays that are coming up in the next month or so .....

I've also redescovered a love of notebooks ..... for as long as I can remember I've loved pencils, pens, notebooks ..... pretty much any kind of stationery. I think it's "girl thing" ..... and so, with girls in mind, I've made some pretty little notebooks which are on sale in my MISI shop:


I'm hoping to spend a majority of my Bank Holiday up here, catching up on crafting and blog reading. What more could I ask for?

Loving the picture of Otis. He is so adorable!

Great looking bunting too.
I'll be able to see it in real life over the weekend, as I will be at the same place as the stall holder.
