Mugs and Post-it books...

Not sure if you remember Steven doing some art on some mugs for leaving presents for he's teachers, (see here) and how I was not sure if to put the names on them.

Well the vote was yes, if I have time, so here are the finished mugs, all tagged up with the full name of the people they were meant for...


and yesterday I managed to finish Steven's finished post-it books as well...



Today I took them into school, not sure what they thought of them, as I went in, left them at reception and came straight home again... me a coward, never, but I know I'm going to be a little emotional with Steven leaving...

On plus note, I managed some crafting this evening, a few quick cards that I suddenly realized were needed for tomorrow and guess what, I crafted DOWNSTAIRS at the dining room table, lol...






I know, I know, I have a craft room in the attic, but the table up there is still very junked up... but I plan on getting it a bit tidy so I can do the odd card or two, for as and when I need them up there while I'm still finding homes for everything...

The reason why...it was very tiring walking up and down two flights of stairs for things, HAHAHA that will teach me

Wow! Maria these are fab!!!!!
Well done Steven, your art work is beautiful!!!!

I love how you added the little tags and also all those post-it notes books, Gosh Maria, you really are amazing, I just don't know how you manage to do so much! Go girl!!
I'm sure the teachers will be soooo chuffed.

Fab cards too Maria, it's so funny reading you're crafting on your kitchen table, with a craft room to die for, lol!
But if I'm honest, I think there's just something lovely and familiar about crafting on your kitchen table, it's just the major clean up after that gets to me, lol!

Well done Maria and Steven! Everything looks great!!!

They are really lovely Maria, how did you ever manage to get so many done inspite of working on your room?? Good luck with Stevens's last day, and hope you soon have some solutions for the time after school for him! Big hugs, Valerie

I can't believe that you crafted downstairs!!! I also meant to say that with all that stash upstairs in your craft loft (I like the sound of that!) your downstairs must seem huge and spacious now!!!

Well done on all your, and Steven's crafting - I'm sure the teachers will love all their lovely gifts.

Will be thinking of you today as Steven breaks up.

Hugs - Carole xxx
