Well, that was fab..

Great weekend for me, am going to brag a little. Spent Saturday in the kitchen (my second favourite place) and despite burning 12 mini mince pies, everything else was delicious. Although, not as much as I'd hoped has gone into the freezer for the holidays. Ho Ho Hum.

See that little car boot crammed with stuff? It's the after-packing. Yesterday was 2 Scrap Ladies' Christmas Card Marathon. It's the only photo I have that represents anything of the day. And I took it about 10 minutes ago! (Note to self: Call yourself a scrapbooker!) I was absolutely desperate for a cup of tea when I got home, so I pretended that there was no unpacking to do. Naturally, first thing this morning my bleary eyes were delighted to see my oh so tidy workroom. And then my brain kicked in and reminded me that practically everything I use on a daily basis was still in the car. And it still is actually. Like turning on the computer, I've left it until other jobs have been done. Because once I settle into this room, I'm a real-life-gonner and there's still a deal to do about the house!

Oh and just so you know: they're still there...this photo also taken today. OK so I can't really prove that, but look at it this way..I've barely been in the workroom this weekend AND I have a handful of sweeties right in front of me..so today at least, I don't need 'em! So onwards and erm, forwards I think. A bunch of now painted wooden hearts needs my attention - yes Linda, Mr Dunnit cut 'em out for me. One day, when I'm really brave, I'll tell you the story about the machine he uses. It's kinda like a big ol' Cricut. It involves a swear word tho', and you know me, I wouldn't want to be offensive!

Thanks for a lovely day - I had a great time - so much so that I completely forgot to take any photos!!

Unpacking is a rubbish job but actually the putting away is even worse. You didnt say how you felt the day went. Sam seems to have had a great day.
Well done re chocolate ...cant wait to see your heart creation.

Oh my word ... there is such a thing as a perfect man ... and you nabbed him all to yourself! I am impressed with the remaining chocolate stash ... you stay strong ... did Mr D design the shape of the hearts too ... or even pick the shape ... that is pretty impressive you know ... if John would agree to doing such things for me ... and that in itself is highly unlikely ... I would have to wait an inordinate amount of time for said item ... you got them painted and everything before I would have got through the sucking air through teeth stage ... I know I sound a little heart obsessed and the truth is ... I am ... truly impressed!

Could you pass Mr Dunnit and his wood-cutting machine around? I could give him a few items to make for me. Is he any good at DIY?

Can't wait to see what you do with those hearts :D I hates unpacking I do - I love going to Ally Pally but I don't put any of it away until Craig has a mini meltdown and sort of goes all Exorcist like and then I think maybe I better start putting things away :D It's just so BORING!

Great day and big thanks to the 2 scarp ladies for all their wonderful ideas, and hard work. I know about the unpacking bit as have several carrier bags of stamps that need refiling!!! I wonder why??!! Perhaps I should have just sent Julia all the boxes and she could have sorted them out before returning them, but I suppose that sounds really mean!! LN

Glad you had a fab time. I hate unpacking, but my DH is in charge of packing and unpacking vehicles so I just leave the boot open and point!

Hmmmm, a man with a big cricut that cuts wood ............ methinks the Mr Dunnit would be a very popular man amongst many! Gotta love a man with a power tool ....., heh, heh......
