Happy New Year!

WOW, just how fast did last year go? I can't believe Christmas is done and dusted and the kids are back to school already! And in all that time, I didn't update my blog once.... he he he, some things never change huh!
So what's been happening? All the usual, getting ready for Christmas, lots of festive activities with the children, resulting in glitter, glitter everywhere!!! A bit of scrapping here and there, although that took a back seat whilst I played along with the Journal Your Christmas. My first time playing along, and I have to say I loved it. I've not quite finished, although I know what I'm going to do, and I decided to stop on Boxing day rather than continue until the 6th Jan. I didn't go for a typically festive themed book, as I don't really like all the Christmas papers and embellishments.... although I seem to have accumulated quite a few over the years!

Anyway, here are just a selection of photos from my journal. I can share some LOs created for the Sarahscards November kit. The colours were just gorgeous, lovely and rich and perfect for the ridiculous amount of photos I have of the boys playing in the trees at Sherwood Pines and Sundown Park.

This LO was done at the little crop get together we have at my house. It was one of those LOs that wasn't planned but had to be done just so I could use the gorgeous new stamps I had just bought! I am just loving the Glitz range of stamps at the moment. Only got a couple of sets, but I have my eye on the rest. I neeeeeeeeeeeed them all!!!!
Sarah of Sarahscards has a personal blog to showcase the fab quilts she has been making.... you need to check them out. They are amazing!!! I am thinking that I need to learn how to do this, because I can see me getting cozy under a gorgeous snuggly quilt.... oh dear, I think this could get expensive!!!
Sarah made me my very own quilted bits pot.... in pink, because let's face it, there's never going to be enough pink in this house!!!

Right, I have ignored the boys for long enough whilst fighting with blogger to put the photos in the right order... I will be back soon, as I do fully intend to update this blog each week ;)
