Christmas 2011

Another Christmas gone, feel rather sad when it’s over and family all return to their homes.

I had some lovely craft presents this year as you can see in the picture.

Looking forward to  using these and all the other things I have purchased in the last year and not found time to use.  Also had a wonderful present of a year's subscription to Papercraft Essentials and a lovely Tim Holtz die from my crafting buddy Dawn.

Christmas nearly here and I am not ready

Can't believe it is Christmas on Sunday, still have so much to do.  Still a couple of presents to get and food to buy.   I need another week to get organised but suppose as usual will do what I can before the day arrives.   Every year I say "Will be better organised next year" this of course never happens.  Well bye for now.

My first post

I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Well off to do some more cleaning and shopping for Christmas.  I love Christmas but could do with a bigger house for everyone to stay and more room to hide the presents.
