This year, I decided to add a little personal touch to some of my Christmas gifts, and made my first ever Christmas truffles (or rather, truffles of any kind) to give out to some of our family...
I quite enjoyed packaging them all up and making them look pretty too; they seemed to go down a treat! :)
Continuing on the festive theme, I put in some sachets of mulling spices...again, all prettily packaged by my own fair hand :D

Well....much to the dismay of the bookies this year, it WAS officially a white Christmas in the UK...snow was falling as we went to bed on Christmas Eve, and the leftovers from the last week or so have only just cleared....here's a few snapshots of our 'Driving Home for Christmas' trip....it was all very pretty...
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

......it's Mr Gingerbread man! :)
- Here's a fun one I completed last week to go with my cookies and candy wrap...it's my first attempt at a gingerbread house, and I quite enjoyed it. :)
Well, there's only 4 more days to go until the big day arrives, and I'm off on a Christmas 'do' later with my fellow designer buddies.....so I think the time for festive fun is finally here and it's time to put away my pencils, tablet and mouse for an ickle while.
Have a great Christmas everyone!

.....that is all. The snow hasn't amounted to much so far around here; though to be honest, I'm hoping it stays that way, as I'm not a huge fan of snow....or the cold, darker days.....roll on Spring, I say! :)
I can't believe that Christmas Day is only one week away!! I finally got all my cards posted yesterday afternoon (not as organised as usual this year for some reason); don't forget - if you're in the UK - the last day for posting is today for 2nd class, Monday for 1st.
Have a lovely weekend everyone!

After the success of the craft fair a couple of weekends ago, I've been busily working on an order I received. I have 12 new calendars to create, and here's a little taster......
- I think one or two people may be receiving these in their Christmas stocking this year! :)

Well, it certainly feels a lot more Christmassy around here...we put our tree and decorations up yesterday , and then to top the day off on a real high I went to see the film 'Nativity!'; it's a new British film by the BBC, starring Martin Freeman and a debut acting appearance by 'chatty man' Alan Carr. It was soooo funny, and the kids in it were adorable - I really recommend it if you're after the feel-good factor! :)
Here are a few nativity designs of my own...these have already sold in the U.S., ready for Christmas 2010

Here are a few little things I've been working on to add to my collection tomorrow...cute little notebooks and calendars; perfect for those special little stocking fillers! :)
Hopefully the sun will shine and it will bring many happy shoppers to the craft fair tomorrow....fingers crossed anyway!
Have a great weekend everyone.
