It wasn't until I had a little peek at Blogland tonight that I realised it was Wednesday. The Bank Holiday Monday has completely thrown me this week and I haven't a clue what day it is, well nothing new there really!!!

Anyway, I have been desperate to join in with Julia and her fellow WOYWW's again but Wednesdays just seem to have slipped by unnoticed over the Summer Holidays, is it really school tomorrow, where did those six weeks go, sorry I digress, again!!

I have been closeted in my cake room with a 4 tier Wedding cake today and DD has been brilliant and quietly played her Nintendo in the comfy chair in my room and been no bother at all. Yes, I do know how lucky I am.

After lunch I decided we'd missed enough of this beautiful day so we took some crafting out into the garden and made some paper handbags. Quick and fun, perfect for children. I then got on with painting my Groom figurine for the cake enjoying being in the fresh air. It never crossed my mind to take any photos of all this activity but DD was running round the garden with her camera and unbeknown to me had captured everything, so these are her photos.

I shall do my best to get round everyone elses workspaces this week. I'm in the mood for a good nosey so beware!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your week is going well so far. Lets hope this beautiful sunshine lasts over the weekend so that everyone can enjoy it.

I think Freya is becoming a rather good photographer too! What a fabulous figurine for the cake. I'm guessing it is for the son of a certain crafter we know! Love your handbags too. We are not back at school officially until next week, thank goodness!

Love the handbags, Lisa. They're such fun to do, aren't they? Hope you're going to show us pics of the cake when it's finished. Don't worry, you're not the only one who doesn't know what day it is during the holidays! Unfortunately, I know only too well that I've only got 5 more days off before I go back to school. Never mind, soon be Christmas! ;-( xx

What a lovely post Lisa, looks like you both enjoyed your time together. Please post the cake when it's finished, I'd love to see it.

You are truly blessed. First, you daughter was good inside while you had to concentrate, then took a pretty fabulous photo of you outside. I would say she saved the day! And I bet she helped with the handbags, too. She deserves a medal! Happy WOYWW.

Hi Lisa

What a brilliant share.

I love your little handbag cards and the groom for your cake is awesome.

You are one very talented lady.

Please tell your daughter that she takes wonderful photographs.

You asked me how I find time to make so many creations .. .. that is simple .. .. my children are grown up and have left home :-(

Love Jules xx

You are clever doing cakes Lisa, I definitely would have no idea where to start!! I love those little 'handbags'. If you have a mo to send me a link to make one that would be great! Jill x

Julia Dunnit said...

Please please show us the finished cake when you can! Your girly is a good 'un for sure, and a photographer to boot!

These are both brilliant Lisa, as is the project in the post below which is just stunning.

I am playing catch up big time, seems to be the story of my life recently, so aplos I have been missing a bit.

Hope we are going to get a peek at that cake sometime.
