It is not available on line yet - but it is distrubuted widely around the MK area and reaches Bedfordshire as well - so look out for it in a craft shop if you are local to me. It lists local clubs and classes as well as shops, and lots of craft articles.

I smartened up the furniture – I won’t be buying new things for the outside this year – the bench is definitely on its last legs though – but I reckon it will see another summer.
The gravel brightens it all up – we just reused paving slabs that we already had….sadly I did not think of this until a lot of them had gone on the skip..I will clean them up soon.

The flowers are once again from the vast stock I have Flowers for Sale….the leaves are cut with the Robo using a QK silhouette file.
The sun finally came out here and I did get out into the garden and managed to plant a few lettuces that I bought a while back, apart from that just did loads of filing…I really don;t know why I let things pile up really. Has anyone seen my driving licence?
I have taken a few of the garden (again) will share tomorrow.

Today I have just installed Windows live writer and I just wanted to have a play and see what it could do. It has more than my standard blogger editor although I must confess I have never checked to see if I could install more on there.
It certainly lets you link to previous posts so easily and it even lets you some styles around your photos
link test, and it lets you select it to a new window - yay sale
This is a drop shadow
Rounded corners – and even a watermark – any font any size any position – you need to click on the advanced tab when highlighting the image
The preview is a proper preview as well – how it will actually look on your blog.
Looks like there are loads more plug ins – will have to have a proper look later. I might even be able to post something new next time.

SO as I have so many I thought I would pass on a bargain to you guys out there - they were already cheap as I have had them for a while - but can see they are back in vogue - so have listed: paper roses and tiny ricrac on the forum - such as these lilac open paper tea roses, at 40p a bunch - who can resist:
I have also some lovely organza bags - which are ideal for gift wrapping you small craft projects - perfect for jewellery.
So do you have "Time to Create"? Well pop on over to the forum and see the fantastic recipe that Sue has launched for us to follow on the forum - your creation must include the following:
Here is the card she has made - she has also added a scrapbook page - isn't it fab

The prima flower was from the collection given to me as a prize from Tracy at Creative Treasures.
I have not been up to much - just working, gardening, and things - I have made a few cards this weekend - but somehow keep getting sidetracked on the computer!
I have been looking for a squirrel proof fat ball feeder - but as yet not seen anything I fancy - they are all so expensive - so have now started looking for a bird bath instead!
