This Week x2...Pretty, Pretty, Pretty

I was off having fun in the Cotswolds at the end of last week/start of this week, so never had chance to post, so the post this week, is a bumper 2 week edition. 
So this week (and last) we discovered a pretty bottle of wine from M&S, with a pretty label, and a fruity flavour. 
Rob's late birthday presents arrived - he had to wait for them to be published.
More pretty fabric arrived, for me to make flowers from.
Some paper samples arrived - we are beginning to think about our pretty invites.
A book full of pretty cakes arrived, for me to review.
A pretty parcel was sent to a pretty, new baby girl.
We visited pretty Tetbury, where we bought pretty cakes.
Groomie got pretty nervous, and man hugs were needed.
There were pretty sparkly brooches placed in pretty hair.
There were pretty dresses, and pretty ladies being put into dresses,
and of course there were pretty bouquets, and the Bride's mum gave us pretty flowers to take home.  

I shall be updating on my daily doodle challenge too - that is going to require a few posts!! :)

This Week... Cinnamon Toast & Chicken Nuggets

This week... next door's cat didn't care is if it wasn't a box, it was still cardboard...I received another book to review... Was left alone while my other half was off on a stag, so I spoilt myself with cinnamon french toast and hot chocolate... I made the yummiest oven baked chicken nuggets, thanks to a Skinnytaste recipe found via Pinterest... I made a start on some paper flowers for my future bouquet... and some organza ones... Also had a go at making tissue paper pompoms, in preparation for my friend's baby shower.

Evil rabbits, Hexagons & A Red Riding Hood Imposter

Day 67 of the Doodle Olympics - true story...

Day 68 of The Doodle Olympics - I saw a small boy determinedly squeezing himself between a wall and a lamp-post. Don't worry,  he had his mum with him, it wasn't like I saw a stuck child, and just left him there or anything.

Day 69 of the Doodle Olympics - I have no idea why I have drawn some kind of evil rabbit, in a waistcoated cowboy ensemble....

Day 70 of the Doodle Olympics - This is actually a different doodle, to the one I have from a week or so ago, I just found the triangles, hexagons and lines really relaxing, so thought I would do some more. 

Day 71 of the Doodle Olympics - Inspired by patchwork quilts.

Day 72 of the Doodle Olympics - A Riding Hood type character, pretty sure she isn't the real deal though, I mean since when did Red have a balloon?

This week... Soup & zines again!

This week has seen me trying to drink lots of water, and discovering coconut water, in an effort to keep myself hydrated, as it seems like a good habit to get into. I have been lucky enough, to get my mitts on another wonderful book, to review for UK Handmade. I have been staying out of the rain... well mostly, pimping up my tomato soup, and getting overly excited at the arrival of my second installment of Solo, by Lizzy Stewart.

Straight Lines

Day 63 of the Doodle Olympics - I love circles and organic shapes, but I thought I would head towards straight line ville - yeah that's right, I'm going WILD! ;)

Day 64 of the Doodle Olympics - Sometimes the things I draw feel more like a sketch, than a doodle. Maybe it is because I spend too long on them... is there a time limit when something stops being a doodle, and becomes a sketch... or something else? This one however feels like a doodle!

Day 65 of the Doodle Olympics - The thing I am loving about straight lines, is that they take less time. With curves, you are more likely to sketch over them again and again, getting them just where you want. Not with a straight line though, no siree, you draw a line and you're done!

Day 66 of the Doodle Olympics - Granted the moon is a bit odd, but I am loving those straight line roses.

Caped Rabbits & Squirrels In Bandit Masks!

Another big blog update, but this post means my doodle blogging is up to date - yeay!! 

Day 54 of the Doodle Olympics - I love simple little patterns, after the textile rug thingy, I decided I wanted to doodle more little patterns. 

 Day 55 of the Doodle Olympics - A sea swirl

Day 56 of the Doodle Olympics - I love going into dark caves on the beach, and looking out to the sea, although last time I did that, the cave was really dark, and I ended up scaring myself, and running out again... I'm cool... honest :)

 Day 57 of the Doodle Olympics - Cute squirrel!

Day 58 of the Doodle Olympics - This is Pete, he was a character in a comedy I was listening to on Radio 4 - he stole a loaf of bread, which I don't advise anyone do, but it was very funny. 

 Day 59 of the Doodle Olympics - Cute rabbits...

Day 60 of the Doodle Olympics - I seem a bit obsessed with squirrels and rabbits. If in doubt draw a rabbit... although this one has a cape, and the squirrel has a bandit mask so it makes all the difference...
... oh dear, stolen bread and bandit masks, please don't think I condone a life of crime!

 Day 61 of the Doodle Olympics - Chucks!

Day 62 of the Doodle Olympics - Look! It is another squirrel.
