Must be nearly Monday…

I’ve got that ominous Sunday night feeling where I don’t want it to be Monday morning again.  Pahhh!  And to top it all I’m not feeling too well and the cat has decided to start snoring again.  I don’t know what’s wrong with little scootie whether it’s his age or wot but he’s recently taken to sitting in front of Eastenders, Corrie, the news, anything on tv in fact and it’s getting bloody annoying I don’t mind telling you.  Then at the drop of his furry little hat he just nods off and starts snoring his fat head off!! Proper snoring I’m talking about, full on proper snoring.  Bizarre! Of course, his ears twitch whilst he’s chasing lickle moices in his dreams but the snoring is a new thing.  Maybe I should get one of those nasal clips or something! For him not me by the way!

Anyway, what I really wanted to say was that I have decided to start off my dedicated cricut blog again which you can find here ilovecricutblog

The intention is to post more projects with instructions and also to offer a bit of a technical help guide too so if you love your bug then get over there and have a nosey.  Right I’m off to psych myself up for the Monday morning blues…x

a lick-le bit of what u fancies…

shopbunny14I was pondering today about where people get their inspiration from really.  I went to the UK trade show at Birmingham on Sunday where I was demo’ing our funky freddies friends and was expecting to be blown away by lots of inspiring products and stands from my fellow profeshionals.  Didn’t happen really, with the exception of one particular laydee who truly inspires me. Sadly she wasn’t there as I would love to have met her in the flesh.  Anyway, there are a few new ranges about to arrive in the Uk which are a bit lush but not really anything “new new” if ya get me drift.  But getting back to the inspiration bit I was amazed at how much of the stuff on offer was very “samey” and quite frankly, a lot of it is about as inspirational as a dead grannie’s drawers and it don’t float my big girl pants I can tell you.  So I came home with my inspiration between my chunky legs and got out my ol’ faithful friend, Mr Cricut.  And a box of French Fancies which inspire me every time I look at their luscious little squares of yummy pastel niceness. Have I mentioned this before, I’m having a deja vu moment here… anyway, I love all there is about a French Fancie and they did inspire me to get designing some lovelies which should be available within the next week or so as soon as I get my chunky cheeks into gear.

Anyway, until then, here is what Mr Cricut produced, bit boring but I think he’s cuuuuute as a button and it’s cheered the shop window up no end (and I could see the people in their cars smiling as we were putting him in the window which is good enough for me).  Now I’m off for a coffee and the last little square of yumminess and to hell with the calories!…
