Don't be misled by the title...it's not what you think...I'm definitely not in tech heaven but Pampered Chef heaven lol!!!! Look what arrived yesterday morning....
and when I opened it look what was inside...my consultant's kit!!! I just adore kitchen gadgets...as long as they work.... and I managed to use quite a few of these while making dinner. I used both pieces of stone wear, knife, chopper and the batter bowl. I also used another piece of stone wear I was gifted at my training on Tuesday night for doing my homework lol. I can't wait to get started though I'm terrified. One minute I think I'm going to be ok then when I REALLY start to think about it I get all sick inside lol. My first show is at my house on Monday and I'm going to be practicing all weekend but I'm not telling you what I'm making just yet as some of my guests read my blog!
If you can bear to tear yourself away from the picture above, take a look at the card I made for my FIL whose birthday was yesterday...
I thought I'd try my hand at bunting again and I think it looks a bit better than my first couple of attempts a few months back. Julie is Queen of Bunting and I'm always studying hers...I curled mine under a bit cuz that's what Julie does and I also did some faux stitching...cuz that's what Julie does lol. I've a long way to go before mine looks as good as Julie's but then Rome wasn't built in a day :-O
I used Magnum & Lily's Cupcake Surprise digi image, colored it with my Copics and cut it out....I probably should have made it a bit bigger but hey ho. You can just about see the Glossy Accents I put on the cupcake frosting and glitter on the candle flames and Lily's party hat.
It's great having Steven home though I now know who give me the most work and grey hairs lol. The 5 of us (Ben was working late) sat down to dinner together for the first time in months and it was just like old times :-D The banter is always good in our house and everyone gives as good as they get...can't afford to be thin skinned in our family lol. Steven and Vanessa go back to Spain on Tuesday until mid September then are home until their next adventure.
I hope you have a good weekend. I'll be practicing my cooking, ironing and watching the Olympics :-D
Catch ya later x
