I made it....

Well, thank god - i made it through xmas intact :D We had a really quiet xmas, nothing terribly exciting happened which is fine by me.

Had loads of fab pressies though, i was so spoilt :D

This was my xmas project - it's an altered cd box that i bought from poundstretcher. I'm going to fill it with loads of lovely goodies.

This little fella is called "Stanley". He's being fostered by my friend Alexa until he finds a home :(

How anybody could ever be cruel to these little pups i'll never know :(. He's only 7 weeks old so he has to have a little coat to go outside for "wees" - we had to improvise with an old jumper.

He looks a bit chavvy now but at least it keeps him warm LOL

A bottle full of love ....

I saw this really gorgeous poem on UKS today and it really inspired me to alter the concept just a bit [thank you to vanda for posting it]

This is a very special gift
That you can never see.
The reason it's so special
Is it comes to you from me.
Whenever you are lonely
And feeling down and blue,
You only have to hold this gift
And you know I think of you.
You never can unwrap it,
Please leave the ribbon tied,
Just hold the box close to your heart
It's filled with love inside.

I changed it to "This is a very special gift, that you can always see" and "Just hold the bottle close to your heart it's filled with love inside"

It's for a special friend who i absolutely adore and she will know that when she looks at her bottle that im always there with her.

Thankfully everything seems to be quiet and peaceful this week. Work has been busy but manageable which is fine with me :D - think we're heading up to "christmas zone"

The most annoying thing this week is that i lost my sisters voucher for christmas - i have turned this house upside down and the bloody thing is nowhere to be seen. You can bet that boxing day it will mysteriously turn up ggrrrr....

I've done an altered cd this week for a friends mum. She has a cat called Tom who unfortunately got shut out all night hehe's 2 cd's joined together. One side says Tom is Out and the other says Tom is In - that should make sure that Tom is tucked up at night from now on LOL

Secret Santa...

Havent blogged very much recently. I've still felt a bit under the weather but we're all better now and raring to go.

I've made a few things but can't post them because they are for various people so i dont think i ought to post the piccies in case they see :D

This is one that i can post though because im fairly sure that the person that its for doesn't read this [i hope] :D

It's a post it note holder and i hope the recipient likes it :D

My First Layout for the Design Team

Hi All

Wow! i am feeling a WHOLE lot better - still get tired really easily but the cough and chest has eased off now thank goodness. Nearly a whole month of feeling really grotty is not my idea of fun at all.

Apparently there is a report out at the minute that says that a lot of people involved in the 7th July bombings are suffering with bad chest infections - my doctors were so good and he upped the dosage of anti-biotics i was on and tested my chest which luckily wasnt too bad - i hope this isn't the shape of things to come though, i hope that this is not something that im going to be affected by for the rest of my life :(

Anyway, onwards and upwards - i got my first set of ribbons this week from - i had a great time putting this lo together. It's another picture of patchey but heh - its either patchey or matty and patchey is by far the better looking :D [only kidding LOL]

All the ribbons featured are available on the site. Can't wait for the next lot :D
