I've got one jute bag and set of notecards completed, using nice wee butterfly wording tags from Craftwork Cards:
I really need to do something about the condensation on my windows!!

I thought they were fab but when I tried a pair on they just didn't suit me :( Pity, they would be just the thing to keep my lugs cosy!!
I said I'd show some photos of the walk Himself and I took last Sunday - we visited the landscape-dominating "bings"; huge piles of spent shale which are the result of extensive mining in the area for shale oil during the last century. Now nature has taken control and they're starting to grass over but the bright orange colour does lend an unearthly ambience.
It's a very popular location for motocross riders and quad bikes - they were whizzing about all over the place!
And once again, it was superb weather!
Today I've been approving the proofs of my new-style business cards and labels which should hopefully be ready soon - very exciting!

Not that I'm insinuating that A) His new place is anything like the TARDIS or B) My Uncle resembles in any way, shape or form the alien in the drawing! Just thought I'd better clear that up!
Himself and I took advantage of the lovely sunny weather this weekend to visit two very interesting places in my local area. I was inspired to take my camera on both occasions.
The pics I'll show tonight are from our visit to Bangour Village Hospital. I have a great interest in Urban Exploration and even though we didn't get to go inside any of the decrepit buildings, it was fascinating to wander around the extensive grounds of this abandoned hospital and to imagine it when it was fully operational!
I'll post pics of our second outing next time!
This week I shall be...
Join in here and have a great week!

I covered each shelf with bright-coloured paper, added a card featuring my fairy princess design to the "girl's" shelf, a card featuring my robots to the "boys" shelf, and I made some paper bunting and a sign. I think the bunting came out pretty well! Hopefully it will catch people's attention!
Also this week, a crowd of friendly-looking monsters have found their way onto my desk:

On the subject of cupcakes, I couldn't not mention the delish banoffi cupcake I bought from this lady who had the stall next to mine at the fair. It was to die for and made the perfect treat to cheer me up when I got home after the event! So it's been a heavenly cupcake weekend!
Now, onto Meet Me On Monday #13 !!
This week I'll be...
Eating: Onion bhajis, vegetable pakora, samosas and naan bread left over from curry night, with lashings of mango chutney - yum!!
Drinking: Another flavoured cider by Magner's - Spiced Honey and Apple - slurp!
Buying: Ingredients to make Whoopie Pies as I really fancy trying it!
Making: Christmas tealight gift sets, once I've bought the tealights!
Listening to: For the first time, my music collection on an Ipod lent by my Dad - yes, he's embraced the technology of the 21st century quicker than I have!
Printing: New business cards and labels for Crafty Mushroom - that's the plan anyway!
