Have you missed me??

Well, have you LOL? I have been sooooo busy lately. My SIL ordered 14 notebooks to give as Christmas presents...how organized is she???? I knew I was going to get even busier so I decided this week was the time to get cracking and start them....take a look:

I really enjoyed making them though there was a lot of work involved. I think the hardest part was picking the images. I wanted them all to be different and I just hope my SIL likes them as well as the recipients!



I think this book is one of my favourites. It was one of the last ones I made....I was desperate to get a bit of sewing on one of the books and this one lucked out! The shoe is from a Hero Art set I bought at the SECC on Thursday. I always like to go on the first day of the show in case everything sells out!! I think there's 3 or 4 shoes and 3 sentiments in the set. This shoe has lots of black dots on them and as soon as I saw it I saw CRYSTALS lol!!! Love it!!! I still have to personalize them all but that shouldn't take too long (she says not very confidently).

And of course Nikki & Friends were at the show on the Craftology stand. I think she's done well...N & F has had the advantage of being on sale at only one stand and that's going to be the case at the NEC in 2 weeks time as well. I still get butterflies when I think of it : )

Don't forget the clocks go back tonight...I'm so glad because I really could use that extra hour in bed. I'm going to brave the gale force winds and lashing rain now to take the dog for their last outing of the day. It's on nights like this I wish I didn't have dogs...shhhhh don't tell Rocky and Ruby I said that lol!!!

On that note I'll say..

Catch ya later x
