Here we are again. Not sure what I mean - click on the WOYWW on my sidebar and find out more - and join in!!!
Thank you to all my lovely visitors last week - I attempted to reply to everyone.

re the baubles card - it is a Stampin Up Stamp Set and Thinlits.

It's been busy as always here at Copper Beeches.

More of what I've been up to later. First my desk aka dining table. It's a tip again :-) I am now trying to complete all the bits and pieces for the upcoming Craft Fair - amongst other things - so here it is.

 Below a view along the table to where I have gathered some of my  makes for the Fair.

Since last Wednesday I have held my All Day Class - everyone seemed to enjoy and lunch and other refreshments were delicious as always.
The ladies did their chosen kits from Stampin Up in the morning. After lunch they made a trio of curvy keepsakes and a card.
The ladies loved their Goody Jars and were happy with their raffle prizes.

Hard at work


Coming to the end

I had two cards to make this week , one was a card for a wedding - I was asked to make this and to their specification. The second is for my sister for her 60th birthday on Sunday.

Since last week's visit I've treated myself to a facial and had a manicure. Also had my hair done.
Last Friday evening I went to a 'Pink Night' my friend cooked dinner for 16 and we all made a donation to breast cancer charity. There was also a raffle and I won a lovely handmade bauble.
The table at the pink night!

Saturday was the All Day Class as I said and on Sunday I visited my Auntie who had a fall. Fortunately she didn't break anything.
|Today I've been baking. Not happy with it though. It's a red velvet and I cooked it in two halves but it took ages and has cracked across the top - hope it will be ok as I don't have time to make another and need to decorate tomorrow.

DH has been poorly for a week. I made him go to GP yesterday - well I took him and as I'd suspected he has a Chest Infection. I am missing his help with everything at the moment, he has been unable to do anything. Hope that he soons starts to improve - not so he can help me :-) but for his sake - he says he has never felt so poorly.

Enough for now. look forward to visiting everyone and will visit as many as I can but definitely all who visit me and those ending with same number as me.


  1. You have been so industrious, Anne, no wonder your table is so busy :) I do hope your craft fair sales are satisfying and that your hubby makes a speedy recovery! Get enough rest and stay well, too, please! xx

  2. Looks like you all had a fabulous day! Less a class than an EVENT LOL! Sorry to hear about your DH - mine needs to be prodded to go to the GP as well. Hope he is on the mend soon - for your sake LOL!

  16. Oh poor DH, I hope the Dr's remedy is starting to have an affect, its horrid feeling that ill. Especially when you're so busy, it must feel as if he's missing out! I love the cards you made for commissions, and the idea of a goody jar, how clever!
