Seeing Christmas is only 9 sleeps away I thought I had best show some of the little bits and pieces I have been making.

Firstly is this very cute stocking filled with all sorts of yummy treats, which I have made over and over again and have been giving away left, right and centre . You have probably seen them around on a few blogs – I first came across it on Tania’s blog (a very talented scrapbooker, her work is just beautiful… check her out!) and she very kindly had a link to Timeless Templates where you can download the template. Once I saw this adorable stocking I had to have a go at making one. So here is my version.

I also made these little candy filled bags to go in the stocking.


Sorry this is short and sweet but I need to get on with making my Christmas cards if I have any intention of them being received before Christmas!

Sent my paper work off today so very soon it will be official! I will be an Independent Stampin’ Up! demonstator.  After a couple years of my lovely and also extremely talented sister in law Sarah’s gentle coaxing I finally said four very magical words…. Alright… I’ll sign up! Quickly followed by don’t tell my husband!

I’m looking forward to seeing where this opportunity will take me and I’m getting quite excited about it.  I’m very new and very nervous about all this blog stuff so bear with me as I  get my head around it but I am really excited to have somewhere to share the things I LOVE to make.

BTW don’t you just LOVE  LOVE  LOVE  my blog banner … well I do … LOTS!  A huge THANK YOU to Sarah yet again for her amazing talents that go beyond the Stampin’ Up! world! She may live to regret signing me up! I do love her lots… she is just the best.
