Thought I'd just quickly share a few more pages with you... I just can't stop !!!!
I've still got bits to do on a couple of the pages, but that's the joy I can do as and when I feel it's right.
Right this is my last blog post before crimbo.... As I must go make my chocolate log
So for the last time this year
Have a gorgeous Christmas everyone

Finally, finally, finally..... I've just done my first page in my Smash book.... and now I just want to sit here and fill it up...

Happy Christmas EVERYONE

No seriously O.M.G....... Karen Allman you are a STAR !!!!
Let me explain.... some time ago on Facebook I mentioned how much I LOVE POLKA DOTS and Karen Allman mentioned that you can get POLKA DOT TOILET PAPER !!!! Well I'd never seen it... have you ??? I searched locally, but to no avail :( :(
Then the postman arrived this morning with a package addressed to me with a top heading stating "Very Personal", well, I done the usual, I wondered who it was from and what it was, I turned it all around, and shook it, then it dawned on me that I'll know the above answers by actually OPENING IT... why do we do that ?????
Anyhoo's imagine my surprise and utter glee when I took these little babies out....
Now I know they're not craft related.... but I'm seeing polka dot flowers... are you ??? Watch this space !!!

That's what my craft room floor represents... I'm in a completely wonderful glittery mess... And I'm loving it !!!!
I feel so privileged to be doing the Martha hour on the 28th December at 2pm, AND.... it's an outlet day... Woohoo !!!
There's so much gorgeous glitter... I dare you to resist !!!
Anyhoo's back to the prepping

Is this....
This is the gorgeous gift bag (containing gorgeous gift), from one of our lovely customers Ali.
She recently gave birth to Oliver, and to make him part of christmas, he made these gift bags, with the help of his mummy !!
The antlers are his hands and the face is his foot... How cool is that.... I just had to share.
Hope you like it :) :) :)

My goodness, I've never dealt with such a bad Company, and although we never saw hind or hair of the November issues, we have received "some" December ones
From the 18 they sent us we only have 2 left in stock !!! So if you want one BE QUICK !!!!
They're not on the website yet, but if you don't live near you can call tomorrow and order one over the phone.
