What a day!
The day got off to a blazing start - literally, got to work to find the euro bin on fire and two colleagues trying to put it out. I joined in by grabbing the fire extinguisher, but couldn't get the stupid pin out, it took two of us, then we got a fit of the giggles.... as you do. Took us about fifteen minutes before the fire was out, by which time we all ponged of smoke.
Our newbie assistant made us all a cuppa - she is an excellent tea maker, and a lovely person who has fitted in really well. Always awkward when someone new starts, for them and for old staff. But it's like she's been with us for years and not just a few weeks.
Boss managed to put damper on things by banging on about the stats we got yesterday... so I turned to thoughts of escaping at 1pm and getting home to watch QVC. Wasn't taken by what was on offer, did like the celtic kit and the paper mania embellishments, they were really pretty, I recognised some of it as I'd bought the pretty butterflies and flowers from Papermill a while ago. But didn't buy anything, phone was out of reach and I couldn't be bothered to go get it. Glad I didn't as at the end of the show they said there was a craft day on Thursday with Rosemary Merry, and that means scrapbooking stuff! Must tho get to a craft shop, need some basics, namely glossy accents, my last bottle had split and it was leaking everywhere when I tried to use it.
Pic - a card I made quite some time ago, just used a plain pink card (possibly from LMC), I'd just got a QVC TSV, the peel off one.... and it had the pretty die cut flowers in it... so stuck a few on randomly, added a few sticky gems, then added some glossy accents, stuck a butterfly peel off to some pink vellum and cut round it and stuck it on using silicon glue. A simple card, but then I like simple!
