Busy busy busy

 I'm sure we're all busy at this time of the year but usually Christmas shopping.  I have to go out and shop today for mine.  Yes I should have been and done that by now but... Remember the organza flower I made for my Mum.. well I carried on using the waterfall I had and a good friend Mrs C said she could sell them at her work. 

Then the girls from work saw them and wanted some too.  Friends have bought them as I've been making them so I haven't been able to keep up.  My lounge is a mess organza all around me..

Petals cut out ready to melt on a tea light.  They don't have to be perfect YAY!!

See my work 'table'.. what a mess

Egg cartons.. great for pinning in organzas once they're melted..

And the benefit of having a lovely OLD lazyboy is you can put pins in it!!!  These flowers are sortof put together but not sewn together yet... 

I haven't invited anyone around for ages because it's in such disarray and my son is still here and I love him to bits and I have been a nice mum for 9 months.. but enough is enough!  I keep looking everyday for a place he can move too closer to his work.  I need my house back to myself... no boy smells - dirty socks and farts!, no plates on the floor in the bedroom, having to tell him to clean up after himself, put the seat down ra ra ra.  And he's 32!!  He does need his own space!

Heck, it's an hour later and I need to go and do my Christmas shop.
