Loves Me Loves Me Not

Happy Easter,

What you all up to? Hopefully I'm getting some rest time today, well after I've done the housework, grrrrr.  I've had a couple of days off work and I think it' s been harder at home than at work, lol.  I had a list of jobs to do, don't we all.  Today was to sort out all the post.  Now I have to confess that working in an office all day long the last thing I want to do when I come home is to sort out post and filing, but I'm ashamed to say that I had 4 carrier bags full, ooops!   Oh my god did I just say that, lol.  I know that most of it is for the bin but I can't throw it without sorting it, plus I'm a hoarder of receipts so one bag was all receipts, as you just never know....... Anyway, my feet are killing and my back aches as I was standing for hours putting papers in piles for filing, ripping up and making a shredding pile, although having Ollie close by is my own little shredder, lol.

I did also spend a couple of hours sorting in my craft room yet again.  I needed more storage and probably could do with just a tad more, it looked like a teenagers room with drawers overflowing everywhere, but its all sorted again now. Let's hope I keep it tidier this time.

I want to share with you a card I made using one of the new Artists at Crafts and Me, Dollie James.  The image is called "Loves Me Loves Me Not".


This is my attempt at clean and simple again and also coloured with polychromo pencils.  Still more practice needed but I think I like the overall result, I even like the simple look, or do I. Actually it looks alot better in reality.  Perhaps I need classes in photograhy.

I'll be back later today with some more candy peeps, picture is taken, just got to get my bum in gear.
