WOYWW - Too Sunny for Crafting !

Well this past weekend - was gorgeous - the warmest & sunniest of the year so far.

So the garden called much more loudly than the craft desk !
It was a pleasure to be working outside !

Saturday was so lovely we took a mini picnic down to Burry Port - the tide was way out & the beach was just stunning as ever !

On Sunday, Lynda took me to a family nursery which sold beautiful plants at amazingly good prices - we both scooped up some brilliant bargains !

So on my desk this week is just a bit of a mess - on the left is a pile of plant labels from my newly planted green treasures which need to be written down in my Garden Journal.
In the centre I was working on the glass jar which we painted at Scrapclub last week.

I used my JOFY stamps which gave me a fun look.
I saw these pearl acrylics in The Range on Saturday & couldn't resist - they are working well on the jar !

So just a quick post tonight s it has been a 13 hour day at work and I am ready to hit a soft pillow now !

But one final bit of excitement today - Bella's parcel arrived safely from Cape Town, South Africa with some lovely gifts for Lunch lady Jan, Julia & I and her ATC's for me to take to the WOYWW Crop on Saturday ! So looking forward to meeting up with everyone !

Have a great crafty week ! Ali x

  19. Oh just look at those shots of the beach - wonderful; so much sand. Someone has lost the plot completely here and piled stones and rocks all over our sand in order to "stop future flooding" Grrrr!! Great fun jar there. Have a great day on Saturday.
    Thanks for visiting.
