Blog Award!

Been feeling really frustrated today because no matter what I do, I can't seem to take a decent photograph of the latest things I've made. Must be the light, but I've tried lamps, flashes, everything and it's all going wrong! However I discovered I've been given a sunshine blog award from the lovely Marie at Minky Magic and that certainly cheered me up! Maybe with a bit of sunshine my photos will be better tomorrow. Anyhow, the rules say you must pass it on to 12 people and link back to the original sender, so I will try my best. returning the favour for the blog award she gave me. A lovely, very personal blog and a great read. Always full of inspiring ideas. a fantastic blog full of tutorials. She makes beautiful brooches from felt in British wildlife designs. Be sure to check out her shop too! she creates beautiful embroidery and showcases it on her blog. I love this blog! It's all about the joys of crafting, baking, and enjoying life! It will brighten your day. This blog is charming. I love her style and her photographs are beautiful.

And that's as many as I have time to mention tonight. A big thanks to Marie again for nominating me.

Belated Post

Before Christmas, I had all of these ideas for blog posts, and although I was really busy with my shop (I nearly sold out completely) and work, I had big plans. Then everything went to pot when I got ill for pretty much all of the Christmas holiday. So this post is going to be a visual update, my Christmas condensed into pictures.

Beautiful Christmas wedding.

My lovely gold and silver tree.

A butterfly on top.

I tried my best to make an effort when wrapping my presents this year.

Christmas at my Mum and Dad's. So many presents under the tree, it was just like when we were children.

Snowy days last week. School was closed so I stayed at home.

Claude the French Snowman!

Now I'm back to full health so things should be back to normal now. School was open, snow was melting a bit. Hope you are all enjoying being cozy at home.
