Today I am very very tired… it’s snowing heavily outside but I’m all wrapped up nice & warm… I’ve been tidying up my laptop & re-discovered my ‘inspirations’ folder.. Lots & lots of photographs that I lurve to look at… these are just a few… (Sources unknown… they’ve been on my laptop a while… if anything is yours drop by & let me know! x)

Xmas Shopping!

I managed to fit in a quick hours worth of xmas shopping yesterday before starting work… 3 balls of purple wool ready to make a pom pom mobile for one of my best friends… Liquid chocolate with hints of chilli & orange for another friend… a discounted price brand new Cargo photo frame from a charity store for another friend… posh shortbread biscuits (i’ll be making them next time around), a rescued photo frame with family photos in… I actually enjoyed myself! How’s your xmas shopping going???
