***This is my 2nd post for today so if you want to have a nosey at my spooky 
journal page too, its HERE***
Hello again peeps!!

I am just having a little relax on my settee with my laptop and thought I would share my little hanging basket I made for Adela's 3D challenge this week and the papertake weekly blogs creature comforts challenge  as I have had a bit of a morning ...............

Little mo wanted to take zakky to school so we got ready, got the dog in the car ( have to lift him in because he is old!) half way to school ( its 4 miles away) Little Mo pipes up with..
"EEEEEuuuwwwww mummy, it smells of roasted zakky poo in here"
to which mummy says...
"yes, its zakky's old doggy breath poppet"
to which Little Mo says...
" o-oh, no it isn't mummy, its a big zakky poo "

AAAARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!! thank goodness we have a totally old car and leather seats, the whiff was not pleasant though so Mo and I were the only people in a car with the windows wide open when it was tipping it down with rain! get home, clean car, cuppa......ahhhh all calm.
Then go out to print of some funky papers for a 3d challenge I like to have a go at, printer worked fine yesterday but today nope, luckily have dig in funky scrapbook, ( I keep all my funky scraps in one of those plastic folder thingies with lots of  plastic pages) have a sheet of double sided funkiness from a couple of weeks ago, use that,phew!! 

Then delivery man comes to deliver new printer,happy happy Lou, jumps up from chair in craft room....slips over Mo's twig (that needed putting near my door to keep me safe from aliens....?? ........bless him.....  ) and straight onto big butt!!!

Anyway........Heres a piccy of whats inside the hanging basket  ( .....which I may need to eat to make self feel better....)

So I am ever hopeful of a more peaceful and uneventful afternoon........ keep your fingers crossed for me please!!!!!!!

Hugs Lou xxxx


  1. Lou, you are too funny! Hope things calmed down for you :) I love this hanging basket. It is absolutely gorgeous!

  2. Oh Lou, I'm glad you're laughing. I think I'd have been hiding in the closet, and I KNOW I'd have been in the basket of goodies. You earned them. Love the part where MO says NO Mummy, it's zacchy poo. Glad you the seats were leather, and hope you were able to air out the car with a good spray.

  3. Lou, what a day so far for you! =)
    A twig to keep you safe from aliens, have to remember that! =)
    Hope the new printer will be good to you!
    Hugs, Elenor
