Why do weekend last such a short time and the weeks days seem to be so long but still never have enough time in them to do everything? Maybe it's just me but I really do need more hours in my days.
I didn't get near my computer or any craft all weekend and I'm still not sure why, I did help my son with some home work, he had to go through some feed back and was getting frustrated with books and papers everywhere, and all the typing though he doesn't like to admit it his cerebral palsy does make it hard for him to type after a while and his hands ache, so he did some dictation to me and I typed. Now before you all think I was doing his work for him he is doing A levels in business and IT and as I did nursing as a career I was learning as I was typing and have to say it's quite interesting learning about the 4 P's and all the different terminology for promotion, I never realised there was so much too it.
Have to admit his Dad had to take over when he said can you help me with this business plan as I'm not sure what kind of detail they want. Hubby was far more use at guiding him through this as he did business and IT at university. Don't think my son gets his brains from me, in fact not sure what he took from me genetically.
Have to admit I would have done this earlier only my son who I made all these valentine gifts for said I wasn't allowed to post them in case anyone from school visited my blog and saw them before he'd delivered them. Now I know that was highly unlikely to happen but if I had posted them I would have been caught out as is my luck so I played safe.
H asked if I could make him some valentines cards and gifts for 4 of his friends, all girls I might ask and not the ones who wanted to come over for sex in the holidays(for those who read the past post). One is apparently mad about pugs so I had to use a picture of a pug and as I don't have permission from the person he got the image from best not publish that one , even though he got permission for me to use it.
He said he would deliver them at lunch time and I hope they went down well. I wasn't allowed to get chocolates to fill the little boxes as that's too romantic so I got jelly hearts instead and that met with my sons approval. I think he's a big softy at heart but he does try hard not to show it.
The Edwins were all coloured with Promarkers and the glasses rims are sakura glazed. The ribbons are from my stash as is the pink card and the flowers. The flower centres are liquid pearls. The little tags on the boxes are from a scrapbook set from QVC. The sentiments on the cards are a mix of stamps from the stampman and the heart shapes I cut out using my circle scribe.
