What I've been up to!

I feel that I have sadly neglected my blog apart from a couple of Folksy Fridays and my trip to the zoo! I have spent a lot of April making, photographing and listing on the daily listing club on Folksy, which has resulted in a lot better looking shop, than it was a month previously. Above, are some of the items listed this month.

I have a stall at the school fete in June, so I am making lots of extra stock for that, and I am conscious that I need to make a lot more for children. I have got some lovely Jelly Baby and Love Heart beads to use.

My First Folksy Friday

Well, I have admired others Folksy Fridays and I thought that as I haven't done a blog post for some time, I would try to do one today! The theme this week is lions. Fingers crossed it works!

A Hot Day at the Zoo

In the glorious sunshine, I went with my family, my nephews and niece and my Dad and his partner to Bristol Zoo. I had forgotten what a good day out was like:

My Mothers Day

My nine year old son made me this lovely card for Mothers Day, bless him. Looks like he raided my craft supplies box! My 13 yr old had a late invitation to a sleepover yesteday, and I imagine I won't be receiving a card from him. However, he did buy me some lovely white tulips yesterday.
Annoyingly, our cat Atticus likes the tulips too, so he wouldn't get out of the picture!
I have two things that I want to do today: 1, Plant a lilac tree in the garden and 2, Find somewhere to have a cream tea!! Happy Mothers Day to all Mums!
