Pop-up Fun from Michele

Good Morning Ladies,

I have been looking forward to today so much, I trained hard too, I rested my vocal cords, so I'm prepared for a marathon day of chatting and laughing.  Paul managed to switch swifts, so we can take our time and not rush back for him to start work.
So we will set off to WATFORD, not London at about 8.30 am, sadly Margaret is too poorly to join us, so I want to send huge hugs your way Margaret, you will be missed. Stay warm and snuggled up and get well soon please xxx

Now how amazing are Michele's Pop-Up Boxes,  you are definitely the 'Queen' of Pop-Up's on our Blog Michele, I love both of these but the Cute Penguin just has the edge for me, I can imagine them all wobbling their heads whenever you move the box!
I am thinking that we should do another tutorial for making these and get everyone to join in,  what do you think ?? I could do a quick video tutorial if that helps.  I would love to see what everyone comes up with and we will all learn something new!
Thank you so much for sharing your boxes Michele xxx

Well I must dash, I have a lot to do to prepare for the day,  I am sure we will all let you know about the day later.
I wish you were all joining us, I really do x

I want to send huge, huge hugs to our very dear Lynda, you have horrible tests to endure today preparing for next week, I hope they give you a big room, because we will all be there with you sweetheart xxx

have a lovely day ladies,
love and hugs


  1. Morning Ladies

    Yesterday was busy at work. I called at my Dads on the way home then hubby was on a conference call when I got home. His phone didn't stop ringing for ages. Not sure where the evening went but it was suddenly time for bed!

    Calling at a friends to drop off a bottle of done as a thank you gift then my crazy friend is coming round to buy some Christmas cards from me.

    I'm thinking I'll do the Attic Sale/Xmas bazaar on the 3rd December as I'd made so much for the Christmas Fair and I doubt my colleagues would buy it all.

    I hope everyone meeting up in Watford has a really lovely day-I'll be thinking about you all.


    1. Hi Michele
      your two pop up boxes are really lovely they will defiantly sell
      But you probably won't get the price they deserve it's a shame.
      Your lucky your crazy friend buys your cardsπŸ€‘
      Hope work goes smoothly Hug's xx

  2. Morning Everyone
    MICHELE - I love both your pop ups. They are always so beautiful. Those penguins are so cute. Hope your Friend buys quite a few of your cards.

    MARGARET - please take care of yourself and get better quickly.
    LYNDA- I'll be with you today to hold your hand.

    To all of you meeting up today I know you'll have a good day and I'll be with you in spirit. Take care travelling.

    Not sure what today will bring but I know it's a 'stay at home' day as it's raining and very windy. Hugs to you all. xxxx

  4. Good Morning ladies.
    Michele . Your pop up boxes are always so lovely. The penguins are so cute. Hope you manage to sell a lot.

    You're probably all on your way now for your meet up. Glad you've been in training Sandra. You'll certainly need good vocal chords for all the chatting you'll all be doing today. Have a lovely time.
    Margaret so sorry you're not feeling too good at the moment. Hope you'll soon be feeling better.
    Lynda hope everything goes well for you today.

    The bar that I do Tai Chi and bingo in today is closed for two weeks so after the windows cleaner has been in about half an hour I'm having a day of crafting. I'm feeling really achy today as I normally do when the weather alters so sitting down is definitely what I need.
    Looking forward to reading later how your day has one.
    Love to everyone.

    1. Thank you Val
      First two appointments went ok next one is 4pm for lung function test.
      Have a lovely day crafting sorry your aching today take care & rest
      Sending πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€— love Lynda xx
