I hope you have all had a really lovely Christmas and have managed to make some special memories to think back on in times to come.
We had a great time in the House of Hearts .. .. but sadly the best of the fun has gone because our kids have now returned to their respective homes .. .. however Mr Heart and I are enjoying spending some special time together ahead of returning to work later next week.
I should really be making a start on that big crafty work list .. .. but I have to admit to having been rather lazy these last few days .. .. but I am looking on it as "training" .. .. because one of my new year resolutions is to try and play as hard as I work!! But having said that it is all too easy to make rash promises to yourself in these lovely calm days that follow Christmas. I can but try!
But having said that it is also hard to craft when the craft pod is still full of all the stuff that I just crammed in there ahead of all the visitors arriving. It is a bit of an assault course to even get anywhere near my desk. There is certainly some serious clearing up and organisation to be done in there!! But all in good time!
I have been busy planning new designs and seeking out new suppliers for my wedding work and finding the location of an event's management company who I may be doing some work with next year. No good being asked to attend a consultation if you don't know how to get to them!!!
I do have to admit to my fingers being very itchy though .. . especially where one of my Christmas pressies are concerned .. because the kids arranged for Santa to bring me these little beauties:
I have them all ready for using .. .. though I do want to put little colour swatches on the top of each pot. The only slight problem I have is that now the pins are in place the lid doesn't close properly. I know they will fit nicely into something like an old ice-cream carton .. .. but I much prefer to keep crafty goodies in their original packaging where possible. Is that just me?
Looking forward to my first play and creation .. .. let's hope it is something worth looking at!! LOL!!
Catch you again soon ahead of a sparkly, brand new year starting.
