Had a few orders to get through the past few weeks and I can finally see the might at the end of the tunnel I think! I'll have to get my beading head back on as I am seriously running out of stock the only problem is I have an itch to be creative when i should really just be productive, it never comes along when you want it too LOL
I have really reached the end of these babies too, only two to go :) I do love making them though apart from all the sanding LOL the letter 'N' has been covered in Swarovski's & looking stunning in real life.
Hope you are all getting ready for the big day I can't wait!!! not that we are up to anything flashy or the kids are getting anything huge but I am closing the shop for a couple of weeks and it is just going to be a great family time for us all. Best of all we are heading down to York for a week of exploring down that neck of the woods and a much needed and really looking forward visit to Hubby's Aunt & Uncle in Manchester, only 18 days to go!!!

I am not proud and I am going to beg on my knees if I need too!!!! Does anyone have any of these wonderful stamps for sale????
Would anyone like to do a stamped image swap for some I really really really want to have a play with these beauties & you can't buy them in the UK :( they should really make a sign for my 2 yr old hissi fit but a sad face will have to do LOL
Thought I'd share a couple more Chrimbo creations :)

Today I took delivery of a fab amount of the wonderful Elzybells rubber stamps, aren't they just the best :) I oooed and aaaaaed over them for a whole hour while Hubs shook his head in the corner LOL I went for the unmounted range as they are half the price which means more fabby designs to work with.
I couldn't resist this little fellow so only one ended up on the shelf, well in fact it was really hard putting all of them on the shelves LOL I decided this was going to be my Christmas card for this year, I can't tell you how wonderful these are to work with!!! and my customers love the fact the picture on the front comes coloured and helps those unsure about the shading etc. such a great feature well done Ela :)
Oh and I squeezed in another Christmas card for a special little baby out in Salt Lake City who we can't wait to meet :) I've never done a Santa in anything other than Red but I'm converted he looks sooo sweet even in pink!

There is nothing better than snow outside and a proper craft day :) Being beside the sea (you can see it in the distance!) it is very rare for us to have enough snow that the kids can play in so when it comes they have a ball & it's such a beautiful sight to see :)

It's that wonderful time of year and I just can't get out of Christmas card mode!!! I really should be making for valentines and Mothers day LOL but I can't help sneaking in a few festive one's to get in the mood :) Today I have a day off work and lucky me I'm cleaning as our Christmas tree is going up tonight, early I know but it takes 5/6hrs as it's so big which makes me want it up and done or I just won't be bothered later!
This is my own cutie pie bear I just love him xx

My shop is all Chrimbo woooohoooooo I just love it and love my little black sock purse tree, but I must admit the little pink trees are very cute, I couldn't think what to put on them so they are plain and still look great!
Thought I'd share with the latest must have from the shop, altered letters!!! They can't get enough of them, which is great but they do take a lot of time with all the sanding need doing on them lol but I just love them :)

I have got some crafty pics but I thought I best post our holiday pics from Oct seen as it's now Nov!!! Hubs had been livin down there for a few weeks before I could get down, it was an fantastic place and I really wish he was going to be there for the 4 years instead of 1 at York and 3 at Bristol, nothing against Bristol mind :)
I was just bowled over by the vast amount of beautiful buildings and the amazing ickle shops, every street you went down there was loads more it was fab!! I even managed to get lost a few times LOL We went down on the train so only managed to walk into the centre, thankfully Hubs flat is a 2min walk) but when we're down at Christmas we'll be taking the car and hope to see the surrounding areas so any recommendations on what would be good to see please let me know :)

I thought I'd share some of my other passion- Beads! I don't know why but I never take pic of my jewellery LOL I couldn't resist popping a card on the end though, I can't mind where I got the stamp at the moment other than it comes from the U.S, I've got another two to show you but they are lying on my desk waiting to be added to card LOL
