A mess! I am still playing "catch up" with my JYC Book.
I am up to 17th Dec but I don't have a lot of time left as that table is our dinning table and needs to be cleared away tomorrow so we can actually use it to eat at !

A few " Christmas presents" to me from me ;)
every year Country view crafts have an advent calendar special offer each day of December , up to Christmas. There are bargains each day - today there is lots of paint on offer. I have placed a few orders over the past few weeks - they have free p and p for UK too ,worth a look each day.
Right off to tackle the stores for fresh fruit and veg - not looking forward to that!
Have a wonderful Christmas xx

 Sorry not many posts recently- not as much time to play as i would like!
I am now on holiday till the 4th Jan so have a little time ( when not preparing for the big day or being a taxi).
I have been catching up with my " Journal Your Christmas" album. I was SO lucky to get to see "Harry Potter" world on 4th Dec on a school trip - a really magical day.

 I placed mt first Waitrose order on line and got £30 off as well as free delivery- Christmas crackers ( a few other items worked out free) .

 We had a great evening at Brome Grange on 12th for our "staff do"- a Saturday this year , so a lay in the next day.

 We did manage to get up in time for a breakfast at the local garden genre and we picked out a new Christmas tree. I Love the weird photo I found after taking some photos of the tree.

So far I have managed to have three Cinnamon lattes two from Costa and one from Starbucks- not bad considering how far away we live from Ipswich or Norwich.

Hoping to be back soon with more updates.

 A big mess! I am still working on my JYC book but of course am not up to date! ( that's all the papers etc to the left of the desk.  I am in the middle of making around 20 mini calendars ( I have made 6 so far!) They WILL get done but not all in time for Christmas ( it will give me something to do over the holiday ;))

 I have three completely finished and popped into bags.

This one needs a little something more on the cover , some ribbons added to the book ring and then onto the next.
They are quite fiddly and take about 3/4 of an hour to make each one .

 This will be short and sweet as I am running late this morning. A big mess! To the left Christmas papers for the last min cards- still making!! 

To the right, my Christmas journal and some printed out prompts found on pinterset. The little note book has note ( or will have) for each day as well - I doubt I will get time to make the pages up daily - more or a mad rush at weekends :) . Well that's me - Whats on yours??

Perfecting the poinsettia Card

 so I have been playing around with the poinsettia die and stamps .I stamped (only) and cut out with scissors for this card. The stamp was inked with versamark clear ink , then I used stampendous embossing enamel with flecks of gold. After embossing, I stained with distress stains.

Happy 1st December xx
