 Hello everyone,

What a weekend, it was busy and fun, full of cleaning and cooking and a bit of craft and the postie came, [I think I have a serious addiction] and to finish off I went to my daughters for dinner and had a lovely roast lamb..

My garage..a big pile of rubbish in the middle, it has been neatly spread throughout the garage, so neatly, I didn't realise how much I really had. [mostly my son's doing in here for me]
But, it didn't take long and now the floor space is clear and my shelves are lovely and tidy again..

Then I had a break because I had these wooden hearts, they are adorable embellishments but all the same colour and I wanted some deep dark chocolate coloured I sprayed them and was pleasantly surprised how nice they came out..

Then the postie came, oh dear, I really do have a problem, but, what a great problem to have..
look at all those dies and only doubled up once by mistake and once deliberately, as sometimes I get lazy cutting one by one and my lemons needed to be cut 2 at a time..
and Holly was happy, she had her man back for the weekend.

Off to the kitchen next, Lasagna time..I make a mean Lasagna..

and my world famous in Napier meatballs
they got heaps this time..honey soy and satay...yum..

Oh, look at that more craft stuff out of that bag..
storage folders for dies, washi tapes, snowflakes, and dies, dies, dies...

So that's it, my seat is ready to be occupied by the finicky feline who is now sitting on my desk right in my face, so I better get up for her and get on with my day..

Thank you so much for stopping by.
I'll see you tomorrow..

Hi Chrissy, your food looks wonderful. I am not a good cook, I haven't made anything for months. But I can produce a sandwich, so that's okay. Glad your cat has her man again, she will be happy! You certainly have lots of dies and other stuff, I know about things like that....Have a great, new week, hugs, Valerie

Canʻt wait to see what you are going to create with all those lovely dies! As the the lasagna, Iʻm very impressed. I just buy Stoufferʻs because it takes so much to make it (looks absolutely delish tho!). Sounds like you had a very full weekend.
