Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Its been a bit of a unsettled coupe of weeks, so I apologise now for not posting a WOYWW or visiting very many blogs, hope you understand,
Mrs Bessie has been staying with us for a few days and we haven't felt much like playing in the craft room, but we have managed to visit a few craft shops! But I have had to get myself into gear as its not long until my SIL's wedding and invitations need to be made. Mojo soon returns though when you have a very special project to do for two very special people. They popped over on Saturday and fortunately loved the sample I had made up - they would say if they didn't!
So this is how my desk looked on Sunday when I started the production line. It still looks the same today as I left on Monday to take Bessie back to Kent and returned yesterday.

Can't show you the finished article until they are all finished and sent out, don't really know why I can't but don't feel it's right, so I wont!

The next picture is not from today's desk, but I am still going to show you.... remember my new oven?
Remember my Toad in the Hole? Remember I was Batter Pudding challenged?
Well these aren't bad are they? - I know of one person who will read this and sneer, but I am proud of myself LOL

Right off to finish the invites and make boxes for them to all go in, sees you later and HAGD!


  1. There is nothing wrong with your batter for those scrummy Yorkshire puds. They look perfect.

  15. Tidy that desk up!!

  16. I think you are quite right not showing the wedding stuff till after the invites have been sent. I think a spot a bit of golden syrup addiction going on here - and with those great yorkie puds you reminded me of a dessert I used to love as a child - hot yorkie pud with golden syrup poured over it!

  17. Can't wait to see the finished pieces for the wedding, good luck with it all. Love the look of your Yorkshire Puddings. Tracy Evans x

  18. Those look like damn fine yorkshires to me!! I'd be happy to help with any quality control issues ...

  19. Those wedding invites look so intriguing Nicks - will they be hand delivered too?

    Hope things settle back to as normal as they can for you and Sparkles - hope she is bearing up xx
