Tilda Bobbin - Addicted To Stamps & Totally tilda DT Project

Hello peeps,
I thought I'd scheduled my post last night but I must have intended to and fell asleep, good job I checked as I'd only got as far as uploading one picture! I'm not sure who took my laptop off me but I woke up to discover somone had reclined my seat, put a blanket over me, taken my laptop & unplugged the mouse as that was still clenched in my hand lol. I took some extra painkillers yesterday evening & they just suddenly hit me, one minute I'm wide awake not feeling tired and then I'm gone zzzzzzzz, hence why as wonderful as they are I only take them when I don't need to go out anywhere. I have visions of me nodding off while bending down picking up a packet of choc chip muffins in the supermarket, or falling into the potato bin, how embarrassing that would be lol. 
I woke up to find two little notes beside me, one from Jodie to say she was having a girlie night & they were all staying at Stacie's, and one from Gareth to say "home muma xxxxx" I always worry if they got home safe if I'm not awake to see them so I love the way they leave me little notes :)

Today I have a large bobbin / cotton reel to share for the new challenge at 
& our challenge is 
My bobbin is also as a midway reminder of our challenge at
for our

The bobbin / cotton reel idea wasn't mine, I have taken inspiration from some gorgeous shabby chic bobbins I saw on Pinterest although mine is not for practical use like the one's on Pinterest, mine is just to look pretty. 
Pinterest is my new addiction, I've still not got into facebook but I've recently discovered Pinterest and love it.

Medium - Copics
Papers - Bazill basics, Hero Arts Kraft & Whiff Of Joy corrugated card, (Creative Imaginations make similar)

It's so hot & humid here again today, I'm hoping for a nice crafty afternoon as hubby is off to work later, so fingers crossed I don't have any unexpected visitors and I can play :) I've put the fan on in my little craft room and opened the window wide trying to cool it a little so all that's needed in there is me and a cup of coffee, I wouldn't mind a choc chip muffin either, I haven't had one for 4 whole days & it's torture lol.
Thanks for stopping by

  5. Gorgeous creation Mandy, I love the swirls and pins, so pretty!

    That's so sweet that your family bundled you up and settled you in for the night on your chair, I do the same for my Mum when she's passed out on the couch hehe :) She's the same, always worrying about whether all her babies are in for the night...notes are such a sweet idea!

    I hope Jodie's feeling better, and you and all her other friends too.

    Hugs Tags xx
