Happy New Year!!

Wow how time flies - I can't believe its been so long between posts!! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas & and wish you all the best for the New Year.
So much has happened since my last post I don't know where to start...there has been highs and lows, a few adventures and a lot of creating. Sadly I lost my best bud for the last 14 years "Bear". We all miss him heaps but he was very old for a Staffordshire and unfortunately they cant live forever.
On the creative front ...I made quite a few Chrissie pressies this year, I decorated this ribbon box for my Mum...

Breanna had 5 Preschool teachers last year so I made each of them a covered notebook:





We packaged the notebooks and a small bag of chocs shown below (cased from the mega talented Karen Thomas) into these gift bags. They were all a hit with the teachers.



Oh yeah and on the 1 December we got a great new Summer Mini Caty - its awesome - check out the online copy on the right or email me if you would like one posted to you. Just a couple of the highlights are the Butterfly punch and the Circle Scissors - both featured on the notebooks above.
I had planned for this to be a much longer post but blogger is driving me insane (wont let me move the photos around) so I'll be back with another post shortly.

Hi Karen

Great looking notebooks, great minds think alike. My son had the same, 4 preschool teachers and a special aide that used to help out, So I too made them all covered notebooks plus I did some beaded pens for them. They all loved them.

Hey there chicki!

Gosh you were busy coming up to Christmas! Loved reading your post......and laughed at the mega talented Karen Thomas part! Your so funny! I can assure you I dont feel mega talented these days! lol

So sorry about your beautiful 'Bear'! I can only imagine how empty your heart must feel. My poodles are my babies and I can't stand to think about the day I have to say goodbye to either of them!!

Love and hugs
