Indulge Me.......Please!

 

 
 
 
Hello Everyone.....I know you've seen these Printers Trays before....
 
 
But please indulge me.....this is my 100th post!
 
 
100! Well I never.....
 
 
I know many of you will have posted lots more than that, but it feels like such an achievement to me!
 
 
These two I think, will be winging there way to the USA! I still find it incredible that anyone wants to buy something I've made!
 
 
As you all know, (well those of you who read Vintage Sheet Addict regularly anyway), this blog only really came about because I hadn't been well. I needed a distraction really, something to focus on, because I wasn't well enough to do my usual job any longer. Well Thank You, you've been a Brilliant Distraction!
 
I've 'met' so many interesting and creative people through this little blog. I'm able to express my creativity, for what it is, I know there are so many much more creative people reading this. But you know what, it doesn't mater! You could be excellent, good, or just an improver, like me!
 
What really matters is that we are exercising our creative souls, we let them out every now and then, to have a little play. Creativity is Good For The Soul. It's been good for mine, and I'm sure that's partly why I'm able to manage my health, and keep it stable!
 
Have a great weekend everyone, I know we are all at various points of the weekend, surreal isn't it?! I've a busy, but lovely, weekend ahead, but will try and catch up with you all soon!
 
Those celebrating Mothers Day on Sunday.....have a lovely day. I will give my Mum an extra squeeze, she might not know me, but I still know her! I will probably give quite a few of the other ladies a extra squeeze too!
 
 
Bye for now,
 
Ada :) x
 
 
 
 
 
Photos taken and uploaded from my iPad, not quite as good.....but quick! :) x

  2. Congratulations Ada! You have whizzed to 100 in a very short space of time, and every one well worth reading!

    I too shall be giving my mum a squeeze tomorrow, but I'm lucky in that she knows me and can respond with a chuckle and a squeeze back. We are all going to lunch at my eldest son's.

    I hope the recipients of those gorgeous printers' rays are appreciative, they are lovely. Yes, you have certainly aired your creative streak! Lx
