Well.... I really think that this gorgeous weather has led to a new way of life in the Beazley household. Some things that have been happening to prove my point!
1) 3 BBQs in one week! (unheard of!)
2) Eating outside everyday - sometimes twice! (never!)
3) Putting out washing at 9pm at night and it's bone dry at 7am in the morning (just weird!)
4) 106 degrees F recorded in the greenhouse (not for a long time)
5) Having to take one overheated labrador down to the beach to cool down and paddling in
the sea at 8.30pm in the evening! (Oh bless!)
She was soooo happy to be cool! Sorry about the misty photos, although I rather like them!
6) Shorts on every day for at least 2 weeks (not in Wales for centuries!)
7) Everybody smiling! (Long may that last!)
I haven't been inside much to craft but this is my desk at the moment
On the right is some new stash I bought at our local craft shop which is unfortunately closing down and are having a sale. A fantastic CD from Joanna Sheen with all gardening and flower images on. I have already used it to make this card for a friend this week.
Some masks for my art journalling and 2 more TH Distress inks. (I'll now have to buy another storage box owing to growing numbers!) A half finished journal page, not sure where its going but I like it so far. I was trying to celebrate the sunshine. I drew my own flowers and painted them.
I used my new stencils and now its ready for words and a bit more detail. Hmmm? I think it's crying out for a Bumble Bee! In the front you can just see a chipboard 7 and 0 which one of my colleagues asked me to make to go on the top of a birthday cake for her Mum. Strange request but I'm having a go and I've never done it before. If you look at last week's post, I am going along the same lines as 'Maria' only in minature. I'll let you know if it was successful. Lastly on the left you can see the photos of our epic 25 mile bike ride that I printed out at last. I kept forgetting to buy photo paper. (I'll blame it on the menopause!)
Well.... thats enough for this week. We are off down the beach again with the dog! One person in our household that hasn't changed her habits and has no intention of doing so for a heatwave or anything else is our cat, Amber. She continues to cook on slow roast on the lounge windowsill in full sun!
Have a happy week yourselves!
