just a quickie ;)

I might have accidentally (ok, ok it wasn't an accident at all) ordered my chooks an eglu cube last night!
Then we can look at getting some new chookaloolaas for them to buddy up with. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any rescues going on near me in the near future, I am waiting for one more reply, and if not it will have to be posh girls. I would love more ex-battery hens, but at the moment the priority is getting some more company for Lola and Ruby...leaving it to fate :)

Anyhoodle, I made this card with a squiggle stamps image, too cute!
Scenic route and MME papers (I think, I can't remember!), promarkers, prima and punched flowers, k&co letters  etc

Back again :)

After a tough few weeks, it has been really hard going, I miss Tilly terribly, and so do Ruby and Lola :(
I opted to have her individually cremated, and collected her ashes last week, she is residing in a beautiful beech box with her name engraved on top on a little brass plaque, it is a very fitting tribute for my beautiful girl.
We will at some point be getting a couple more girls, for Ruby and Lola's benefit really as if Ruby is in the nestbox laying, Lola goes bonkers and shouts until Ruby comes back, she hates being on her own for any length of time now, it really stresses her out.
On a slightly lighter note, I splashed out a bit and had this run built for them...I just need to paint it, and finish saving for their new house, then we should be all set!

and had this made to go on the run, which I love

Of course the girls had to *help*...chicken in a bucket anyone?

Onto other things, a recent card, I needed something that I could be doing to try and get me back into crafting, as that was the thing that had to go with being so busy, and after losing Tilly.
