Finally - pink balls!


The plan was simple , won't take a sec , fill my glass cake stand with pink balls to display in the kitchen for Christmas .

That was were it all started to go wrong .

The cupboard where the cake stand sat was dusty - remove and clean everything .

My melamine collection was looking a bit grubby - clean them all .

Wow the containers look really good now - take a photo .

Go to put everything back - windows dirty - clean them .

Rearrange and finally -3 hours later- pink balls !

Hey Clare! Oooooohhh!! I know EXACTLY what you mean!! I always manage to do this to myself when taking cover photos for new patterns!! The tea cups need dusting, the table needs cleaning, the background has to be tidied ...!! It becomes a very long process indeed just to get ONE good photo - but it's very satisfying when it looks just right! Now you deserve to sit back with a cup of tea and relax for a while! Bear Hugs!

Glad to know I am not the only one:) Know that feeling, I did the same thing, removed all the rocks out of the bowls they looked dirty so I washed them filled with with balls, then realised the cabinet was dusty so I dusted it then thought I had better polish it.

At least we can enjoy them and know things are clean.
