Sunday, 6 October 2013


Gosh Sunday is nearly over along with the weekend.   Only two more days at work, did think I was going to get tomorrow off.  Public holiday here tomorrow and Daddy is off but Mummy has just text to say I don't need to go in until 11am.  It's going to be a mad house Daddy plus girls, Nancy the cleaner and myself, thank goodness it's a fairly big house, but oh I could have got so much done here, I have packed 99% of the things but there will be bits that I have forgotten.

Anna made the box Beth hot glued the hats on to the bag  and they both put the card together,

You can by the spots on the card some of these star boxes are very small, I told Anna not to waste paper so she didn't.

One of these new triangle do shaped bibs and a burp cloth fits in the box nicely , it's a gift for a neighbours  baby.

The box that Anna made for the gift plus this one was made from the 12x12 Lidl card, the little nappy  was made by Patricia - summer- house  ages ago in were in my stash along with the little ribbon thing and flowers.

Well folks that's it for tonight, I hope while I am away to keep commenting on your blogs, there is free wifi in al, the hotels .thank you for all your lovely comments, as I keep saying if I can give someone an idea for a gift I am happy.
Take care enjoy your crafting what ever you are doing. Oh don't ask me what has gone wrong to tried to redo this so I will just say sorry.

Any way on Friday Nancy saw the gift that Anna and Beth had made for their friend whose birthday was yesterday.  It was a bag with sketch book and gel pens also a origami box full of sweeties.  Nancy loved the box asked where we had got it told it was made by Anna, she asked if she could have a girlie one for a new baby gift, also would it be possible to make smaller ones.  I had to laugh as sitting just along from the gift was lots of very small ones Anna had made. We always say Nancy needs glasses.  The long and short of it all she order  six  little ones made from 6x6 paper in red and could they be Christmasy so they could be used for table presents.  Nancy wanted them for a stall at the hospital.  She works there at a weekend and to raise funds all the staff were asked if they could supply things that can be used at/for Christmas and she felt these would be just right. When I asked when she needed them for - Monday will be fine was her answer, it's on while I am away.

So a lot of photos, first will be the girls makes, then the baby gift and lastly the table presents.

  15. Hi Hazel
    Just read your comment. Can't believe you are going to be stuck for 10 hours. Horrendous. Make sure you get food and drink from Air Transat. EU261 won't apply as its not a European airline but there should be some provision made to feed and water you.
    Sorry your hols haven't got off to a great start.
    Take care.

  16. Hi hazel
    Don't you just love these boxes. I'm loving how you've made them in all different sizes.
    Gorgeous and stunning hazel.
    Hoping you are well
    Hugs xx

  17. Me again chuck.
    Glad they're looking after you. Did wonder if the delay had extended when you mentioned hotel but then realised its for the other end.
    Thank goodness it wasn't Ryanair otherwise your flight to Canada would have actually been to Greenland Airport and you may have been lucky to get a curled up egg sandwich as compo lol!
    Take care chuck.
