writing a recipe - for a monster

It is June already. Crazy.
I have a craft fair coming up in just over a months time, and apart from papping my pants about how little I have made recently (I need to remedy this with immediate effect) I have been testing out some ideas for packaging my softies. This is one of the labels for the back of the packaging:I've also been beavering away on some more greetings cards - this time using coloured cards that come with co-ordinating spotty envelopes - very sweet. The cards have a slightly shiny surface which is a little tricky to draw on as the pen glides much more easily when drawing. I do like the effect though and have enjoyed making this last batch. They have all been photographed in readiness for the shopI'm also really enjoying my garden and greenhouse - I'm a bit surprised at myself actually about how much I am enjoying it all. The first thing I do when I get home from work is to go and have a look at what is bigger than it was yesterday. I'm pleased to report that is is all coming along nicely - the slugs have gone on a teletext holiday which is great - I wish they had taken the flies with them too however. The first thing to fruit is my strawberries and it won't be long before they are ready to eat. mmmmm strawberries.

Ooh ooh - Winchester? When? I've missed so much important stuff lately! I'm going to have to pop up and see you when you're there!

Gorgeous cards :-)

I'm right with you on the gardening. I've become something of a stalker - several times a day I have to wander round and see if anything new has appeared! I found the best way to make it grow is to go away for a week!
