Hello Everyone

Well as you can see I have been extremely busy! I had a fabby christmas a little quieter than normal spent christmas evening at my daughters with friends and family.

I got absolutely loads of craft goodies for christmas some I haven't even opened the packaging yet some new craft CDs as I am a lover of CDs but I think I have a tad too many now but dont tell anyone lol

I also went down south and spent a few nights with my Mam,Dad, brother and sisters noy done that in years it was great and I thought I was bad with deckies well my Sister is worse than me she has 4 very large xmas trees for every room downstairs it was like a winter wonderland lol.

I have a few projects for the coming months and a few more tutorials that I will be sharing with you all..

Hope you all had a fabby christmas and hope your New year is crafting heaven

Near the end of my christmas orders and still people ask if I could make a few more cards for them. I wish I had the workforce and the man hours as I would!
but unfortunately I don't.
I still have not got my tree up and my youngest son will be home on leave this Friday and all his life the christmas fairies have put our tree and deckies up when they where asleep lol
I loved to see there little faces the next morning then they knew it was christmas. so i dont want to spoil his dream ha ha and ask him to help.

I still have some shopping to do which I need to take my son Kyle with me he is brilliant at picking out christmas gifts and I think he enjoys shopping unlike his Dad my DH who hates looking around the shops he buys what he needs and then goes straight home.

Ah well need to go
