Di's Birthday Gift

As it is a milestone Birthday for Di this weekend we decided to get her somethng special.

Di keeps chickens at home so the first thought was a new chick but, as she has rare breeds we were unsure so we went for a garden ornament, A Cockeral made from metal.

 It was a complete suprise for Di and I hope you can see her reaction from the photos.

Hoping you have a fantastic Birthday Di
Love from all at Once Upon A Stamp

Yes as Jean has said a great weekend and very busy. Here we all are just before opening all relaxed before the we began.
We are now holding the fort at the shop while the boys are in the states, even though we all have a few aches and pains between us.

Summer Crafting at Doncaster Racecourse

Just returned from a great weekend at Doncaster, we have had a really busy time. Hope everyone who managed to go to the show enjoyed it as much as we did, although we have all come away shattered and could do with a few days off to get over it. But we are all in the shop tomorrow as Rob and Gordon are away to the CHA trade show in Chicargo in the morning so we are left holding the fort.

These are pic's of our stand on Saturday morning before the onslaught of crafters.
