Special Gifts!

Wow where did December go!!! Life has been so busy with preparing for workshops, craft classes for children, doing all those fab parent things like nativity plays and carol concerts and of course the general prep that is required for Christmas!!! It's been so busy in this crazy household not least because of the car accident I had a the end of November and we still don't have our car back, then someone kindly put a bb gun out of their car window whilst I was driving behind them and it's been a little more than frantic helping Santa with the ever changing lists of my children, but all in all we've had a super duper Chrimbo and sincerely hope you have too!

I've finally got some time to load some pics of the yummy notebooks that I gave to some special friends recently. I've used the SU on board journals and decorated them front and back with designer series papers, ribbons, onboard letters and buttons to name but a few of the accessories.

They've gone down a storm and those who received them have daughters eyeing them up. I'm relieved I put initials on them for my friends otherwise I fear they would be borrowed on a permanent basis.

I've also received some fabulous gifts in the form of handmade cards from my lovely customers. Some of these will be making an appearance on The Stamping Hamster Blog so please do take a look. Thank you to everyone who sent cards of any sort. In particular the handmade ones have made me appreciate why I love being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator so much. It's a real joy to see what everyone has made. I love them all!

I hope that Christmas has been a special time for you all and that the New Year brings you joy and prosperity. I will be back soon, but in the meantime have fun.
Hugs Zx
