Beauty and the Beast

Sorry, I'm being very absent at the moment!  Mostly because I've taken on an order for a new retail outlet - whooop! (I'll disclose more details when I've fulfilled my order with them!). I've been quite cautious about going in this direction because it can be very labour intensive and leaves little time for creative work (particularly when you're working on a part-time basis), but I think I've had quite good innings with experimental work recently! 

It's time to get down to some good, old-fashioned hard work now and earn some 'pennies', so my posts may be a little sporadic over the next few weeks.  On the other hand, it's the school Summer hols soon, so I may need to 'blog' just to keep my sanity, hehe!  I'm in competition with 'Little S's' photography, a  shot of a wild crocus on the lawn this morning - that's the 'Beauty' part of the post . . . 


. . . and the 'Beast' part is . . . 


. . . this ugly pile of palettes in my garden!  This seemingly is a 'Summer' project and my Other Half will transform this ugly heap into a new Den for 'Little S'.  Never mind, it means that I can sneak off to get some serious crafting done while the blokes in the house can get busy with hammers and saws - sorted!!! :)  I'll maybe try and document the progress of this wonderful new Den (should really be my wonderful new workshop - hmpppphhhhh!).

Have a lovely week - I'll be back when I can sneak a break from my 'tweedie-making'!

Every time I see a palette lately I think of this: http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/gardening-without-a-garden-10-ideas-for-your-patio-or-balcony-renters-solutions-167221. :)

Hey ALison, I hope you find the balance between the 'have to and the want to' on the crafting side of things. I know exactly what you mean and it can be a juggle....

Well done on the new outlet and hope the 'pennies' start coming your way.....

A den, how wonderful for little S it sounds like a great project for the fellas to get stuck into, but you might be called upon to whip up some blokey type curtains and cushions!!

Hope the holidays bring good weather with them
I have my tweedie ♥♥♥♥hanging up and it looks fab......
