This And That!!!

 The very gorgeous Miss Doodle enjoying a baking session with ganma. She is such a 'girl' that she was more interested in which bits she could wear as jewellery.......although we did make several pastry snakes and worms.
She absolutely floored me the other day when I was sitting with her while she ate her dinner. Chatting away she suddenly turned to me, put her hand on my face and said 'you're boofiful ganma'. How cute is that? I mean we all know I'm not boofiful but how precious that Ruby thinks I am. Love that little bean so much.

Today I have been doing one of those 'life's too short' type jobs. When DS got married I ordered two huge packs of four inch doilies from the catering suppliers which I have never really done anything with. So today I set about painting some of them with some of my huge stash of acrylic paints. They look fab but boy what a boring job that was.
Anyway I have made a few cards with them but didn't finish until the light had gone so I shall have to take pics tomorrow. I have an unexpected day to myself as darling DDIL is taking Mr Manic off out of my hair for the day. They are off to the races at Uttoxeter. It would be nice if he came back a rich!!!

Well I am off to do some investigating of a pile of discs I have found with no inkling of their contents written anywhere on them.
Have a great weekend.


  1. I love it! I can't wait for my granddaughter to get a little bigger so we can have those moments too - Dahlia is just 14 months old now. Won't be long though!

  2. She is so pretty, is hard to believe that she has grown so much. Enjoy her, time passes so quickly. Wish that I had kept a journal and written a update once a week when my kids were small. We think we will remember, but we forget so many things as the years go by. Loving all of your cards, I have not posted a reply lately but still read each one.

  3. My word Sheila, Ruby is turning into a real little lady. It's wonderful that you've got lots of photos to capture her as she grows up. Wonder how old she'll be before she gets into crafting ??

  4. She looks so like you, Sheila!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
It is much appreciated.
