I haven't touched a piece of paper in over 10 days!! I am busting to get cracking on some Christmas stuff but first of all I have to re-establish my household.
It all started when we went away to Grannies house for 5 days. The intention was that DH and Grandad would re-build the kitchen. Fix the cupboards and re-place the workbench and sink etc. (Thanks Peter those drawers open out lovely now!!)
Whilst at Grannies house I shopped and I shopped and I shopped.....some of it was for Xmas presents but alot of it was to re=stock my dwindling supplies!! I vary rarely buy paper now as my kits keep me busy but I have had to stock up on flowers and leaves and Xmas embellishments as I have some huge projects planned!
I spent a leisurely 2 hours in a flower emporium......I basically emptied the shelves of paper flowers!!
To my delight I returned home and discovered that Prima are doing some the same as some I bought, so I'm dead chuffed about that.
I returned to a house in chaos and thick full of dust.......the next day was spent cleaning and wiping......and then Ben got poorly:(
He develped a severe rash as part of an allergic reaction and I took him to the GP. 24 hours later we were in hospital as 95% of his body was covered in huge areas of bright red circles and massive areas that covered his entire arms and legs. The hospital discharged him only for his feet, hands and lips to swell during the night and an ambulance was called. (I was foolishly at work-having felt guilty about having to take the previous night off).
Anyway the poor little might is now loads better but he has taken to hiding in corners so that he can scratch his legs.....urgh they are in such a state!! We are desperately waiting for our new flooring on Friday as we think the dust and exposed floor may be the cause?
So I'd like to apologise for my lack of commenting. I have alot to catch up on especially for Lets get Shabby which currently has a stunning giveaway.

One of my favourite memories is of my Mother making the Christmas Mince. She used a huge metal pan and every year we had to stir it with the wooden spoon and make a wish. I treasure that memory as it was a real tradition in our house and god help Mum if she put the mince meat into jars before we had come home from school and made our wishes!!
Following the horrendous Post strike over here I had yet another missing parcel. On Sunday morning whilst I was in Hospital Mark took delivery of my Bubbly Funk November kit.......a dreamy Christmas kit from Fancy Pants packed with Prima flowers, leaves, bobble trim, ribbon, Maya Road chipboard, Tando Creative chipboard and some super cool add on surprises.
Now I just wish I had another 10 days off work to get on with it all.........oh well one can only dream........xxx
Love and magic
