Deep breath and.....


Hello blogworld,

So Christmas is almost upon us and I'm pretty sure that nearly all that needed to be done to be ready has been done.  Apart from some wrapping of presents and the buying of two presents for people that we don't know what to get for - one of them being father-in-law!  But then when he says that he doesn't want anything and don't bother, what do we do!! So he's getting a personalised calender and box of Bertie Bassets!!

Today was last day of school as well and SHMbO is in a very funny mood - very happy one minute and down in the dumps crying next.  I'm hoping that it's just getting over excited in the run up to Christmas, and it's nothing more serious.

So this is probably going to be my last post now before Christmas - we've got last wrappings tomorrow; food shopping and a birthday party on Sunday; the father-in-law is arriving on Monday and then it's the big day - so slightly busy then!

I'll leave you with a couple of cards and very big thank you for all the wonderful comments and support over the last year.  I am so grateful that I've found this wonderful bloggy crafty community - so lovely to find people who get that desire to stamp, colour, create and generally spend a fortune on crafty stuff ;-)

I will pop back on Christmas day for a festive wave, but really won't be here until between Christmas and the New Year.

My cards, with apologies for the poor pictures - I'm flying around at the mo and didn't have a chance to get the light box out from the corner under the pile of stuff!


That's all folks!  Hope you get to do whatever it is you like doing best over Christmas - I'm hoping that Santa brings me a crafty present or two and a bit of time to play with the crafty stuff (if I get it!!).

See you soon,

The Cheeks has been similar all week, I'm putting it down to tiredness and excitement as he's also being a bit of a tinker, which is a sure sign, also. This is a really fab selection of cards Sarah. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and new year with your family, and Santa is kind to you. See you in the new year! X
