Folksy Friday - White Butterfly

I am running a bit late today, due to getting to bed quite late, after going to see one of my favourite bands last night. "InMe" were playing all the songs from their "White Butterfly" album, so therefore, the theme for my Folksy Friday pays homage, here are some White Butterfly inspired Folksy finds.

Hello 30s - Day 44 - 54

This is another huge update!

Day 44:
I had been sorting out the kitchen cupboards, and had found lots of left over bits and pieces, so decided to make some bird cakes. Here they are hardening up in the fridge.

Day 45:
I decided to get a bit experimental with polymer clay, I want to start making some more pendants. This was my first attempt, although the second and third were much better :)

Day 46:
More experimenting with polymer, those sugary colours make it look good enough to eat right?

Day 47:
The first of the christmas presents are wrapped. I was seeing my friend Liz, as she was over from Germany, so I thought I would get myself organised, and have her presents ready so I didn't have to risk losing them in the post :)

Day 48:
Empty bottle... We are trying to save money at the minute, so rather than buying a bottle of wine, we decided to drink what we already had in the house. This was the strawberry vodka we picked up at the food fair in Cockermouth :)

Day 49:
Goodies arrived for me to play with!

Day 50:
I don't actually find myself sanding that often, but when I do, it feels like it is all I ever do. There was the usual sanding of skin from fingers - ouch!

Day 51:
This was me planning my trip into London, I always take my trusty map book with me in case the tube is down and I have to rely on buses or something. As it turned out it was an easy walk and I didn't need it, but I like to be prepared.

Day 52:
There has been lots of amusement this week for myself and Ollie the cat, created from a piece of pink ribbon. There were some better shots, but I felt this really captured the action.

Day 53:
Boyfriend really does make the best venison, bacon, cheese and onion relish burgers! :)

Day 54:
I have started some graphics work for a christmas concert, I am currently trying to work out out to make lengthy carols fit onto one page - eek!

Hello 30s - Day 39 - 43

The one where dawn has actually made things :)

Day 39:Is this a bit of a cheat? I am not sure, today I was taking images of goodies that were going into my Folksy shop, so I thought I would kill two birds with one stone :)

Day 40:
Some festive looking scribbles and plans.

Day 41:
Things start to get a little bit tidier, as the plan develops.

Day 42:
Here it all starts to make a bit more sense, I have been making christmas cards for my friends and family.

Day 43:
There are four different designs at the minute, but this is my santa card.

Hello 30s - Day 35 - 38

Day 35:I thought I would have loads of images to choose from today, as we went out for a girlie meal and chat. The chat turned out to be the problem, there was so much that I forgot all about my camera until we were being thrown out the pub at the end of the night, so a quick pic of one side of the dessert board it was - incidently I had chocolate fudge cake, and it was very nice.

Day 36:
That appears to be a rather iconic eye??? First bought christmas present of the year, well actually not the first bought, but the first to be in my possession. The first bought is from that high street store that begins in N and ends in T, who are being a bit disappointing :(

Day 37:
No it hasn't suddenly snowed :( , I was defrosting the freezer, but got all distracted by pretty ice :)

Day 38:I live in a reasonably built up area, but this what I can see out the window when I wake up in the morning. It struck me when I opened my eyes this morning, that I really am quite lucky :)
