Coffee needed!

Coffee needed!

Hi there

Thanks for joining me. Here beginneth the early morning blog – one day at a time. I have a meeting up in Peterborough this morning, so it’s extra early! But a decision is made: our little Blog rises to the top of the daily list.

You’ll forgive the absence of a step by step. But how about a little early morning challenge? Let’s get you going, too! I’m going to show you a card – and perhaps you can answer me these 3 questions:

Who designed the die?

Which Designer Collection is the background paper from?

Where are these stickers from?

There’s a £20 gift voucher to be won here! Just add your answers 1.2.3 below. All the correct answerers will go in a pot – and a random lucky winner will be picked. Come on! Got to be in it to win it!

Winner to be announced friday xx

But now I really must hit the road, Jack!! Dartford Tunnel traffic is savage at this time of day!

Love & Hugs,

Barb xxx

    re: yesterdays blog – In order to be more organised and change some habits I decided to make a ‘to do’ list of 5 essential jobs each day, and have found this to be very helpful. Sometimes I get more done 😀 and sometimes none 😰 but it helps a bit to keep things on track. My aim is housework am while still fresh, crafting or art pm to relax, reading or other pastimes in the evening.
    Reading your blog over breakfast is good and gives me something to think about while I work. I can catch up on comments in the evening.
    Hope you had a good journey to Peterborough and that your meeting goes well. You certainly cram a lot into your days – such energy is enviable.How do you do it?
    Now fully awake I must get on with my list.
    Hugs 🍒🍒🍒

  12. Good morning Barbara. It’s lovely to read your blog early in the day. Maria’s shows yesterday were inspiring. I couldn’t resist those beautiful stamps. Have a safe journey to Peterborough.

  26. Good luck to everyone with the quiz! Managed to tidy 3 things off my work desk yesterday but the craft desk had to wait until today, although I did do some crochet in the evening. I love the idea of setting an intention for daily practice! The trick will be not beating myself up if it doesn’t get done!!!
