Awards, Sweet Gals, and pretties i made !

Before i start my usual rambling on i want to say a BIG KISSY KISSY AND HUGGY HUGGY THANKYOU to all my lovely and caring friends (yes YOU reading this) who left comments and/or emailed me to see if i was ok when i sold my sweet horse (see previous post). Yep i was pretty grumpy alright...just ask my poor hubby Shane.
BUT all your cyber hugs and kisses made me feel lots better. I luv you gals so much and i am sending big huge massive hugs right back to all of you! I hope you can feel them {{{{{{{{HUGGING YOU NOW}}}}}}}}

Ok now for some serious stuff...
Nah not really.

I am AGAIN just overwhelmed by the friendship of the following lovely gals.
Alison,Kara,Kerryanne,Mandii and Joan who all gave me this awesome award !


Well girls lil' ole me is so humbled. Each of you are so important to me in so many different ways. I hope you know that and i say RIGHT BACK AT CHA and give you back the award!

AND.......today i am again just TICKLED PINK to have received this award from a new bloggy buddy, Brittany. Now this girl is FUNNY, i liked her right away !


Thankyou Brittany, you sweet thing. I also say RIGHT BACK AT CHA with this one and i will pass it onto my sweetie pie friend Joan.

Ok Ok enough with the awards already!

NOW lookie what i did !


yeah yeah i did, i made a lamp ! I am totally chuffed with myself *hee hee*.
I kept it kinda simple and not too Frou Frou because im putting it on Shanes bedside table so i really didnt want him having a spak attack at me...poor guy is so overloaded with pinkness..... Oh and i sooo need to steal a prettier base from my mummy...Oh Mummy....????

So now i have discovered something else i can 'create' i will no doubt have a house full of lamps pretty soon :) Oh how dreadful would THAT be...hideous, horrendous...LOL

OH and ive decided to get back into making some Faux Cuppies for Ebay....i like em, they are just fun!

Heres some i 'whipped up' today.



Thankgoodness they arent real.....my rear end is expanding by the minute.....now why is that......surely these yummies below have nothing to do with it..????


No surely not. It cant be....

Ok well im off then to find the solution..and more Cadbury Creme Eggs....hmm now where did i put that packet.....

Lotsa Hugs,

Shann xxoo

Great job on the lamp Shann! Come on Coll hand over a pretty base to Shann!!! Please....
Love your cuppies too!
I saw those easter eggs in the supermarket the other day, I couldn't believe it. I mean easter isn't until late March for goodness sake.

So glad you are feeling better Shannon! Ok...is there anything that you CAN'T do? LOL! Honestly,you are so creative and multi-talented!! Love, love, love the pretty lamp and the faux treats are awesome as always! Hugs,
Barbara

Kerryanne English said...

Okay Shan...we are both self confessed chocoholics but here we deviate.....alas, the creme egg is not a fav of mine. At Easter I can't go past the Turkish Delight mini eggs and when I am done with that there is nothing nicer than the oozing, delectable golden shine of dripping caramel in the Cadbury's Caramel filled Easter eggs..mmmmmmmmm.....

Easter - bring it on girlfriend!!!!!!!

Hugs,
Kerryanne

PurpleFlowerFairy said...

oh shann! i NEED that lamp shade!!!! =) and i am a TOTAL addict of cadbury eggs. thank goodness they are only available a few months out of the year or i'd be in big trouble =) hugs, debbie

COLLS GARDEN said...

Ok, & just who taught you how to cover a lampshade, hmmm? I see you even managed to match up the pattern. Maybe we can find a better base than that one (lol).
mwah :-}

Gail McCormack said...

You deserve the awards!! The lamp looks fantastic, bet Shane is tickled Pink!!! I'm looking out for some cuppies from you, as for the real chocolates, please don't tempt me!

Alison Gibbs said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Haven't had a chance to get used to the empty nest yet. My sister and her hubby stayed over saturday night, tonight and then Tursday night Lachlan and Chloe are having a sleep over. Maybe next week it will be a real empty nest - scary thought.

Shannon, Oh those cuppies are so adorable!!! I'm thinking of when I do the kitchen redo when Marc goes off to the Air Force on July to do an all bake shop themed kitchen! And I will need some of your cuppies to make it complete! Now hows my Sammykins??? Do you really not have Peeps marshmallows there? That is remarkable if you don't! Its freezing here and so snowy, but I'm loving the snow. Gonna be using Mom's fabric piece this weekend from your cottonand candy sap. Well gonna run feel the need to decorate today! Cute lamp! Lori

Hi Shannon,

Thanks for the award! Too cool! I really like your lamp you made, that looks like it would be hard to do. And I didn't know the cadbury eggs were out already,yum. I've been buying Valentine's candy. Oh and almost forgot, those cupcakes look good enough to eat. So glad you are feeling better and thanks again for the award.

Thank you so much for the sweet birthday wishes!

Love ya,
