I am still alive!!!!

Hello there, i am now back but what a hectic few weeks i have had. I have not read any blogs so i have a lot of catching up to do which i'm really looking forward too!!!

I started my new job on monday but i'm woth holding judgement on how i feel about it until i have been there a bit longer - if i decide now it will not be a positive outcome!

All of my time recently has been taken up with uni work, it was a hard slog but is now FINISHED!!!!!! I just have to wait until 14th July now, for graduation, fingers crossed.

Onto more exciting things - i received this parcel in the post aaaaaaages ago from the amazing Jenny. It was as a part of the Heart swap, and i'm only just getting around to bloging about it (shame on me!).

There were some great pieces of felt and material with heart designs on and sone red heart beads...
...There were lots of super buttons...
...and this fabulous purple brooch, which is now pinned proudly on the front of my bag so i can see it every day!
I got some yummy chocolate hearts...
...and this beautiful hanging pink felted heart.
Thank you so much for this great parcel Jenny - i love it!
I went on a night out on Thursday to celebrate the end of Uni so most of yesterday was spent recovering. Today me and Martin made the most of a rare day off together and went to Ramsbotton in Lancashire for the afternoon. I have never been before and i loved the little unique gift shops and the real steam train at the station!
Tomorrow i am doing a craft fair at Guy's Thatched Hamlet near Preston. I did one here just before christmas and it was a huge success so i am looking forward to tomorrow. I must admit though that in the madness of the last few weeks i nearly forgot that i was doing it. Oooops!
I stillhave lots to get ready so i'd better get a move on - i will be doing serious blog catch ups tomorrow when i get home!

  1. Congratulations on finishing Uni! Hope you have fully recovered from the night out! x

  2. What a lovely swap! I really love the heart buttons! Hope you have a safe and happy Easter weekend, and congratulations of finishing uni!

  3. Awesome array of colors and hearts. Lucky you!

  4. Congratulations on getting the worst thing about uni out of the way!!
    Good luck with the weekend

  5. Welcome back! Great swap pics, I have really enjoyed seeing what everyone recieved. Looking forward to hearing how you get on at the craft fair. I haven't been brave enough to do one yet! Kate x

  6. I couldn't wait to finish either! Good on you for finding a job! When I went to my graduation I was the only one with a proper job. It was almost like they were all waiting to get one after graduation, which is daft because then you are competing with thousands of other students. I think it took me a good year to get over the shell shock of being out of uni (the thing you have been working towards all your life) and used to the 9-5 working week. You'll get used to it eventually. My advice is to try and find something you enjoy - go with your heart not your head.

  7. So glad you liked your parcel, I do hope work turns out well for you and that you sell out at the fair! xxx
