Sunday Sevens #5

Here is this week’s Sunday Seven week number 5!

Sunday Sevens is the weekly blog series created by Natalie over on Threads and Bobbins.

1 & 2 Report week and parents evening at school this week, very proud of my boys and how well they have done this year! Especially excited to see their fab art work that we got to bring home, a pot and a mosaic tile.

3. Last year we had fun in the summer holidays doing the Birmingham Childrens Hospital (where I used to work) “Big hoot” trail looking for giant owls, so we were very excited to find this year they are doing a similar thing but with book benches and it’s called the big read. We’ve downloaded our trail already and can’t wait to get started!

4. A few weeks ago I bought a sandwich toaster and we were enjoying the novelty of it but it was faulty! My new one arrived and we had fun trying some more out this weekend! My personal fave so far is tuna, cheese and peppers on seeded bread but the boys love cheese and ham!

5. I’ve been sale shopping! The boys hate shopping but I was eager to get some new clothes that fit me as my clothes are all getting too big!

6. Making the most of no work to do this weekend and made some cards and thank you gifts for the boys teachers, a sneek peek here but will do a full post on them after they’ve been given!

7. Sun!!! Finally a sunny Sunday and a lovely family dog walk through the fields and along the canal! Perfect weekend family time.

Sunday Sevens #4

Here is this week’s Sunday Seven week number 4!

Sunday Sevens is the weekly blog series created by Natalie over on Threads and Bobbins.

1. This week I’ve been stressing out to the maximum about work, interviews and the last of the written work that I have had to do. So, when I saw this on my littlest ones t-shirt as he went off to his dodge ball match, I thought yes I need to remember B.E.A.S.T !

2. It wasn’t all bad news this week though, my mood was brightened by a £25 win on some premium bonds I forgot I even had!

3. By the time Friday finally put in an appearance I was ready for a night of wine, takeaway food and some music!

4. This made me laugh…the two boys trying to camouflage themselves, one put in more effort than the other!

5. We had a fun hour at Birmingham Airport watching the planes I’m not a very good plane spotter and have no idea what im.looking at, but thanks to a real plane spotting expert we got to see this REALLY big plane!

6. Meet Claudia the latest addition to the household, a family heirloom!

7. Out with the old…packed away all my university books and replaced them with my craft things!

Sunday Sevens #3


Here is this week’s Sunday Seven my third week!

Sunday Sevens is the weekly blog series created by Natalie over on Threads and Bobbins.

I even managed to squeeze a couple of craft related pics in.

1.

My car decided to demonstrate it’s own creative side by losing all its power steering fluid on the wet road! So pretty 😀

2.

Wimbledon! Manages to watch a few games this week, more than I would have got to watch if England had stayed in the Euros!

3.

The school summer festival was a very rainy event, but it didn’t stop these two doing the penalty shoot outs in torrential rain!

4.

My cover for my craft book is coming on, a desperate need for some blocking though!

5.

A super quick 70th birthday card I made, loving the Kraft card look at the moment and I’m getting there with my stamping.

6.

Breakfast out with my babies this morning! Some quality Mummy/Boys time.

7.

Back at the laptop for the rest of the day, last hurdle nearly complete!

Crafting: Kirstie Cuttlebug Cardmaking

So, I thought I’d have a got at making an actual card after all the bits and pieces of practice attempts I’ve done! The football was a good excuse to play whilst the rest of the house was glued to the television.

It wasn’t a success really more of a learning curve! Despite my 10+ practice stamps being perfect the one on the card went wrong! I plan to cover it up with a label and restamp…hopefully it will work, that’s for another night tonight though as my eyes are very sleepy after fiddling with the gems.
