Had a busy crafting day....

It's been a while since I could craft for a few hours but today was heaven!!!! I was supposed to be painting the extension ready for the new kitchen, but as DH has taken Leah skiing this week in Italy I thought I should have some leisure time too!!! He's not going to be a happy bunny when he gets back on Sunday and I haven't even started - I went clothes shopping yesterday instead of painting and managed to spend a sizable chunk of this months wages!

OK - back to today, I managed 3 cards, the photos are shocking as DH also took the good camera so I am having to manage with a naff old one, and also it is soooo dark here again today!

Then I made a gift for the lady at work who is retiring soon - This is not a new idea, I borrowed it from some of the lovely girls over on Just Bex who have made teacher survival kits before - I just adapted it for a retirement.

The bottle of wine is my favourite as I could use some of our terminology ( we spend hours each week raising prescriptions!)
I had fun making this so I hope she likes it.
