Busy little bees ......

I have just received this lovely friendly award from bj@sweetnothings.. Thank you so much bj.. it is lovely to be given such an accolade!

This week the cogs have been whirring here at Cowboys & Custard enterprises..
I am trying to keep my web shop page stocked with frames and handle Christmas card orders as they come in... and as all you crafters out there who sell your own goods know.. you can never second guess how many orders will fall on the doormat or intray each day..
I work so much better under pressure as I need the adrenalin to keep the conveyor belt moving and love it when I get unexpected orders coming in as long as they are not required yesterday!
I can almost hear the click click click of the sewing machines all across the land of your frantic production line of crafts in time for Christmas.. so here's to all you arty crafty people out there.. raise your mug and here's a toast to every one of you..
May your needle never break, my your thread run smoothly, may your glue gun never run dry and have a wonderful crafty weekend!

So here are just some of my latest Christmas creations..

If any of you are lucky enough to get to the Country Living Christmas Fair then you can buy my cards on Dee Puddy's Stand P42. If you are interested in buying any of these items below... just drop me a line..

The Factory

P.s Thanks to all of you who have notified me of your comments being returned by the mail sender. I would just ignore these annoying messages as I DO receive your comments and appreciate every single one!

Thank you for that bj.. I think my photography is pretty naff though! I need to post some better photos.

I love all of your creativity! Congratulations on your award - that is just wonderful! I'm so glad I followed Niki's link to your blog... I am going to put you on my blogroll so I don't have to keep typing in your url every day (heehee)!

I'd love to purchase one of your teddy bear "Happy Christmas" cards for my new little nephew (less than 24 hours old and I'm already spoiling him for Christmas - haha)! I didn't see one in your shop... thank you! (If you need my email it is stitchintyme9 at aol.)


I am hearing in my head at the blogging community awards ceremony - and this year's best newcomer is .. Michele from Cowboys & Custard, well done on your latest award! I like your 'arty crafty' cards and how great the hub of your industry being on the kitchen table, looks like a lovely cosy kitchen too. x

Hi there Michele, Popped around to say HI!I feel my blogging has suffered some this past month, I too am frantically sewing and trying to finish my work in time for christmas, this one's a new venture and it's taking up all my available time and some, but I too need the pressure. I'm hoping to post a blog on what I've been doing, so please come see. Well done on your award, you deserve it. Best Wishes from Annie x

Congtatulations on your award.
I have got very behind with posts and reading blogs, I feel I have neglected everyone.
