The good thing about having a Wednesday off when you work part time is that you are never more than 2 days away from a day at home! Some Wednesdays are used productively, some are wasted doing boring old houseworky stuff, and some are full of fun and friends.
Yesterday was one of the latter. I ask you, what better way to spend a day off than to spend a lovely lunchtime eating scrummy food with two good friends? And if the restaurant you go to happens to be just across the road from a crafty shop packed to the rafters with all kinds of scrapbooking gorgeousness - well, the icing is on the proverbial cake!
And so what if I spent more in the craft shop than I did on my lunch?!
Having spent Saturday learning oodles of ways to make flowers, I realised a distinct gap in my scrapbook supplies. I clearly needed a flower shapped cutter. How had I managed all this time without one? Karen had shown us how to make carnation type flowers out of 8 pieces of pages from old books, inked around the edges and I loved them, but couldn't make them due to lack of cutter. Cutter bought: problem solved!
