Me On a Monday

Happy Monday friends.

I know the lovely Sian, that started this fabulous idea has changed it slightly, but I do so love the original that I may just stick with it this year too ... I hope that's ok.

I'm not saying I won't also join in her new one, which is called Memorandum Monday, and it's all about what you've learnt that's new, so do pop over and check it out, in fact .... I do have a little something new to share with you ... but first!

You'll find me this Monday getting back into my normal routine as Simon has gone back to work after 3 weeks off.

So how was our weekend? Well it was Social.  On Saturday I attended my local crop and had a lovely day catching up with friends. Its been ages since I went, so hoping to attend more this year, and I even managed a layout.
That empty spot with nothing on the desk other than my cutting board and a Starbucks is, is where I was sitting lol.

Then Sunday saw us celebrating at my friend Jackies 40th birthday party.  She had a vintage afternoon tea theme and it was just lovely. You can tell she's a crafter by how beautiful it all looked, and the attention she gave to the small details.



So here comes the bit where I've learnt something new this weekend! 

All that bunting you see, that was made by Jackie herself. It was gorgeous and of course, we got talking about it, and it turns out that its all made from buying cheap duvet covers.  That way when you cut the triangles you can cut two at a time for being double sided. Plus its more economical ... how brilliant is she? What a clever idea. 

So that brings me straight back to today, and of course back into my old routine, which means coffee and cake with Emma. 
Have a lovely week friends, and I'll be back to share with you my layout and, (shines halo) my 2016 project life pages, so far.

  11. I think I may carry on with Me on Monday, still give a wave to Sian and if I happen to do something new or learn something new over the weekend then will share that also. Your crop looks fun and the party looks like it was great fun too.

  19. I am glad that you took the break from your daily routine life and celebrated hard. I am also thinking to celebrate at best New York event venues this year with my friends and make some memories. Hope I will get my desired venue for it soon.
