Booked it...packed it...!!!!

Woohoo! Hi de hi to all you lovely crafty peeps out there!
Yes, by the title, you might have guessed already, but we have now booked and paid for the flights to our fave fabbo holiday place in the world! Yup! We're off to Zante in September. He who works, myself and our 2 buddies Jay and Shellbell (...ok, we do have more than 2 buddies you know but these 2 are our bezzies!).
So this week I've been trolling through Ebay looking for some holiday clothes bargains and I've found quite a few little numbers which will look lovely and all for a bargain price.
That's what we like us crafters! BARGAINS even if it isn't crafty stuff.

Anyhoo, I have also been busy making a couple of things this last week.
I had a little notelet/address book  holder bought for me many moons ago and I decided to take it apart to see how it was put together and then rebuild it with chipboard and alter it slightly.
I think I made a good job of it and also I recovered the little address book too.

The phrase is from an Indigoblu stamp and the papers I used were.....Graphic 45! Who'd have guessed!
(Sorry the photos aren't too brill!!!)


 I've also made another 3 DRAWER UNIT  but it isn't completely finished yet - here it is for now!

I thought this might be useful for little pots of embossing powder? I painted the MDF unit in white acrylic and I've used the Bohemian paper pad by Dovecraft; I purchased the unit from Lasersmith uk and sprayed the whole thing with Spray and Shine varnish to seal it.
A busy week then!

 Now, this week, I have 3 commissions to complete before 30th August including another family tree and, as I'm useless with remembering to update my blog, it could even be Christmas before I'm back! Lol!
I've made a promise to myself to blog at LEAST once a week - watch this space.....
