I am still battling to catch up with things, working at the moment on something I can't share just yet so thought this 'sorry' monkey card that I made for Papercraft Inspirations magazine was appropriate. All the papers, and the monkey image and sentiment were printed out using the Paper Boutique (vol 1) CD from Polkadoodles...................check out the new digi stamps by Nikky while you are over there, called Fredericka they really fill a gap as they are images of women, not cute girls or children. I will be working with them over the weekend so you will see what I mean next week

Limited edition whilst stocks last

and just in case anyone is at all interested, here's a sneak peek at how the kitchen is coming along - shiny new stainless steel appliances in situ, the trouble is, they look so shiny and new, I don't really want to cook, I might dirty them.......I did however bake a cake, for the first time in years. I read somewhere that the best test of a new oven was to bake a cake, so despite the fact that we don't often eat cake and it is a matter of supreme indifference to me whether the cake rises evenly, I had to have a go, and found it quite relaxing. I think I may try hot cross buns next. US friends probably wonder what on earth I am talking about, I don't think I have ever seen a hot cross bun over there. In case anyone is wondering, it's a yeast based dough with currants and cinnamon which has a cross baked on the top, we eat them by the million over here at Easter time. I have no idea why they are called 'hot' as they are usually served cold, spread with butter. Another British idiosyncrasy

and I love my new Metro tiles with an inset made from little stainless steel squares, rock, and tumbled glass, lots of texture there

The floor is being laid tomorrow, then the decorator comes in next week. I hope I have chosen the colours wisely because I am going down to London for a couple of days and won't be around to scream 'STOP' if I got it wrong

See you tomorrow

  7. I love your monkey! I was raised in Kansas (I now live in Texas) and we fixed hot cross buns every year for easter. We weren't ever able to find currants, so we used raisins. I love them and actually miss eating them. Thanks for sharing.
