Busy and it's not good really

Oh dear we have been busy. Well, by our past standards we have been so NOT busy, but by retirement standards it has been full on the last couple of days.

I don't know how I used to run a large school, cope with girls,  staff, a board of governors etc because now the simplest things seem like hard work.

However,, the things we needed to do are done and it's been good.

Nigel had positive news from the doctor and I now have Dolly's Designs for sale in a fabulous local cafe.



That rotating stand is mine and full of my stock for sale


I have found time to scrap too, of course.


This was made for a DAF member to celebrate her 500 followers on Instagram (yes you too can follow me on my relatively new insta page at @scrapdolly ... if you are on Instagram please do follow me ... I could do with more followers as there is a heck of an echo at the moment.

It was based on a special Lisa Sikorski sketch






Stay wild


and there is a DAF cyber crop on this weekend so I have been playing along with that and with other challenges but at a slow pace - just two pages today

This was for a DAF challenge and a scrap squad challenge ... it was to use unloved stash that never sees the light of day. Brads and rub ons are my new focus!












and this was a DAF and a Scrap a Sketch challenge











Today I am thankful for

  • a bit of a quieter day
  • the support of a local business
