December update

Sorry, I have been a very bad blogger recently. I have had a lot going on at work, so much so I handed in my notice the week before Christmas, but luckily have something else lined up from February so just have to get through the next few weeks of hell to move on to somewhere that is hopefully much better - fingers crossed!

Anyway, all these goings on meant I wasn't really in the mood for crafting :( and then I've been away for most of the Christmas hols so haven't had time. I went to visit my sister in the gorgeous Sweden - here is where we were on Christmas Day:

We had Christmas present opening a little late and I was a very lucky girlie (I knew I was getting it as I bought most of it myself lol!) but here is my wonderful new stash all ready and waiting to be used:

I also have to say a big thank you to Downrightcrafty Kate for the wonderful parcel of candy that I won on her website - thank you Kate - I can't wait to play :)

And I was also very lucky to win the October challenge (I know it was a while ago!) at Scrapology and wanted to say a big thank you for the eyelets I got as my prize - gotta love eyelets and now I have loads of scrummy colours to choose from :)

And a final thank you to the lovely ladies who sent me Christmas cards :) Sorry I didn't get round to sending any back - I have a big stash of unsent ones this year due to work :(

Right, I might go and try to tidy my craft room a bit so I can actually get in it (I am not kidding, there's about 2 feet behind the door to get in and that's it!) and then try and do some crafting this weekend or what's left of it.


  1. Hi Em, sorry to hear about the job & hope you like your new one when you start in Feb. Looks like you had a great crimbo, what a wonderful place to spend it. Lucky you to have all that lovely new stash to play with. All the best for 2012.
