Busy Weekend!

Had such a busy weekend - it is so nice to just finally sit in my pyjamas, waiting for my takeaway to arrive!

Saturday I was up at 5am - caught a train from Preston at 7:30am and I was off to QVC in London - Presented the Cinch machine on air in the 1pm show and then I was back on a train home at 3:30pm!!!
Arrived home at 6:30 and then me and Chris were off out for a meal at a lovely Chinese restaurant with my In Laws as my Mother In Law was celebrating her 50th Birthday!
It was a really good night and an amazing meal - mind you, with it being a long day - one glass of wine and I was a little but squiffy!!!! I am such a half pint nowadays!!

Today was spent at my Nieces 2nd Birthday Party - it was great with all the kids playing on the back garden and the adults catching up whilst eating homemade curry!!
Ben went all day without his usual 2 - 4 hour nap - So 7pm on the dot he was ready for bed!

So, here we are - pyjamas on waiting for takeaway and all chilled out!
Great end to a great weekend!

Anyway, here's the next Blog Candy for you all and it's a gorgeous BRAND NEW Martha Stewart Cupcake Punch & Stamp Set courtesy of Personal Impressions............................
Lurve it - I was so tempted to keep it for myself!!! LOL!!

So, as always, just leave a comment to enter the draw - Will pull the winner a week from today - Sunday 25th July!!

Well, best get back to do nothing as I have got such a busy week ahead - Craft Day is on Saturday and we have 9 hours of shows and in each show there are at least 5 New Todays!!!!! Oh My!!!!!

See you all then!

Hi Amy,

What a hectic weekend you've had! Put your feet up and relax for the rest of the evening and enjoy your takeaway.

I spent the afternoon teaching various art and crafts to children at a community day which went really well.

I would love to be entered into the draw as I am obsessed with cupcakes! Thank you for offering blog candy.

What a nice blog design change, Amy- it looks very restful now, tho the reds/oranges of the last design were nice.
Hope you enjoyed your evening, you've been so busy lately that you have to have space to re-charge and re-energise; and it was good that your lovely Ben went to bed early!
Thank you for offering the blog candy and not keeping it yourself- it would be nice to use, so can you enter me for it, please? Thanks. Will be glued to the screen for craft day...yippee!
Take care, be rested,

madalison said...

Sounds like you have had a very busy week, but dosnt that make you appreciate any time left for crafting all the more?! Was going to the Tatten Park Flower show on saturday but now I'm torn with it being craft day, what to do, if I go out I will miss all the New Today goodies, and I know how swiftly they disappear, anyone know the weather for saturday, that might just make the decision easier for!
Love to you all

Can't wait for craft day and thank you for giving me a chance to win the cupcake punch. I can almost taste it, it looks fantastic. I do love Martha Stewart punches. Big hugs. Petrina XX

Well good golly Miss Molly, It's a good job you have been busy running around with all the posh meals and takeaways ha ha ha, Just kidding Amy, honest. Fed up about Craft day, will have to watch as much as I can and record the rest as I need to go to Wales with hubby to get a new motorbike, ho hum. Sophie say hello and is looking foreward to your next workshop so see you then.
Please include us in your candy draw either for the punch or some Quality Street...

Best Wishes Jacqui & Sophie

Penelope said...

Hi Amy, lovely to meet you at the QVC craft extravaganza, although silly me, was so exhausted (with not being too well) I left my freebie bag behind, ah well perhaps I'll win the blogcandy. I loved the punches you were demonstrating, promised myself I'd buy one but have been quite poorly since , however getting stronger again, so Rosie the chihuahua and I will be having a day out doing some retail therapy in the Design Studio, am thinking of doing a scrapbook of our days out in Ozzy! Hope you enjoyed your takeaway and the Ben is ok now. Penelope x

Jane said...

What a time you had. Deserve to chill.

Katie said...

Hi Amy, I love crafting on QVC. My crafting was quite limited before I found QVC, there are only a couple of small craft/art shops locally. I wouldn't like to try to add up all that I've spent on craft over the last 9 years of watching Dawn. I don't own any MS punches yet, but I'm hoping to rectify that very, very soon. Can't wait for craft day. Crafty hugs x

Melanie-Jane said...
