And even timed it to turn up over a bank holiday weekend - how often does that happen !
So thank you Persephone for deciding to come back to the upper world this week at long last !
A card for Rich for our 20th wedding anniversary this Wednesday
How can it be 20 years since our wedding - where did all those years go !!
I decided to use photos of the wedding & some up to date ones - and the papers are from the Chronology range which I thought toned well & are suitably masculine !
With the card safely made, I was able go outside & take a few Spring photos in the garden
Then I headed to the garden centre to get some veggie plants - hardly any of my seeds have germinated this year - too cold maybe ? - so I had to give in & get some ready grown Pea plants, Sugar snaps & Little Gem lettuces - all now safely planted out in my veggie beds !
My name is Alison & I am an addict.... I am addicted to craft stash
We had forgotten to turn off the alarm clock & so when it went off at 6am on Bank Holiday Monday - being on my own I thought "whatever !" and set to having a blitz through my scrapbook papers !
I learnt a lot !!
I buy too many papers !
I buy too many brown papers - and don't use them up ! Note to self USE THOSE PAPERS !
It's not a bargain if you never use it !
There are always dreadful papers in every paper pad or set of paper ! ADMIT THIS & MOVE ON !
It's also okay to move on & admit you are never going to use that paper you bought 5 years ago !
If you haven't used it by now you NEVER WILL !
Even the greatest on hoarder (that's me then !) can clear out, bin and bundle up to give away a full box of papers - and it needn't cause palpitations - it can even feel liberating !
Yesterday was gorgeous here - we made a trip to Aberglasney Gardens - it was a pretty enough place - but not very good value for money - quite expensive to get in & not that much to see really - a couple of garden areas & a small walk in the woods .... not a patch on Picton Castle Gardens or even the Botanic Gardens !
But some pretty flowers to snap !
And as we drove back the views over the Towy Valley were stunning !
We just had to stop & take photos !
Have a great week !
