Excitement...

... You know, at my age it doesn't really take a very lot to get me excited... and I have been ever so patiently waiting for this little beauty to arrive in the Room of Stash so I allowed myself a couple of celebratory squeaks and squeals. What it is? It is only the brand spanking new Studio 490 Scrapbook Organizer from Blossom Bucket. It is a birthday pressie from Grim and I am even happier that he has allowed me to have it now and not having to wait the next 30 days has made my life better (and he is because he won't have to listen to me whinging on about it being my birthday... very soon!)



When I got to The Stamp Attic yesterday morning it was there... waiting for me... and I had to really pull myself together to actually set things up instead of playing with it and ignoring all the lovely ladies who came along to get inky with me. So a big, big thank you to Wendy G for getting this in for me... and to Wendy V for designing it and just knowing that this is what all us crafters need. I was going to wait til WOYWW to show it off but... erm... I couldn't wait lol


As well as the excitement of the new storage, I also had a lovely, fun day so a big, big thank you to all the ladies who put up with my waffle all day. And... whilst I am saying thank you's, here's another big, big one to CazzyFifi and MiriamFifi who took care of drinks orders meaning that everyone got the right drink, with the right amount of tea in it and the right amount of milk. (I just cannot make tea!) And, finally... the piece-de-resistance of the day: Kate's Crumble. So, a few weeks ago I spies Kate and Wendy having a natter on yonder Facebook and they are on about this totes-amazeballs Apple Crumble that Kate had made for them. So, because I am a pig (self confessed even) I says "ooh can you make one when I come over next pretty pleasings?" And Kate said "yes". And... she did... oooohlllaaaa-chuffing-laaallaaaa. I would happily admit that I am a bit of a pudding conisuwer, I do love a nice pud. And I can honestly say, this is the bestest Apple Crumble I have ever tasted... just the right amount of apple and the perfection of the crumble topping... and the even thicker than normal cream.... nomnomnom. What makes it even better is that I ate it whilst crafting and standing up so it was actually into minus calories!

That there pic is of the ladies... you can tell by the look on Caz's face that she was ready for home rofl... bless her, she puts up with a lot....
Right then, I had better get myself moving, I have got a part finished tag I am making for tomorrow's blog post. Thanks for looking... TTFN

Looks like you had a fab day, and that crumble looks totally yummy. I've just been checking out your upcoming workshops, and what do you know, I'm away in France when you have your Studio 490 extravaganza. :((
Hopefully you'll do it again at some point.

Your cake stand thingy looks cool.. whats it for? what you putting in it? I would have just run home and started filling it up instantly and abandoned the waiting crafters LOL. yelled "BRB" as I ran out the door.

I hope your birthday works like mine.. if I get presents early, people feel sad for me that i have nothing to open on the day from them, so they get me something else LOL.
