Christmas 2009

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas, we went to my Mums and had a very enjoyable time. The kids were really happy and were extremely pleased with what Father Christmas bought them! (sorry for quality of photos I think I might have to get a new camera in 2010 hint hint!!!)

Although I'm not sure who enjoyed the spaceman outfit more, Noah or Grandad!!!

I also thought I would show you what I firstly made for my family and then decided to make for 3 of my followers who won my Christmas Giveaway, the reason for me making these were 1) they are so damn cute 2) they were wonderfully dotty for Becky at dotsandspots and 3) I had run out of stock over the Christmas fairs so had nothing to give away! The design is from a wonderful lady and friend called Brenda Walker.

Today I'm suffering with a cold but am in the process of designing and making for next year so keep coming back and I might show you some sneaky previews!!! Thanks for all your support in making 2009 good and I hope that you will love my new items even more making 2010 a great year!

Christmas Giveaway Winners

It has been a bit manic in my house recently, but I have finally finished all fairs, and have had my Ofsted inspection where I was graded OUTSTANDING, oh yeah baby, I'm OUTSTANDING!!! Lol ;) I have now done a to-do-list as I have not done any Christmas Shopping which is a first for me and now I'm starting to panic, especially as people expect handcrafted items and mmmm, I sold out of most bits over the past few weeks!

However I have now managed to do my giveaway, I used a random number generator this time so now beautiful girlie pulling names out of pumpkin! But I will add in my beautiful Angel!!!

Before I tell you who won I would just like to say a HUGE Thank you to all my Followers, Commenters and especially my customers who have supported me and made this run of Christmas Fairs worth while and extremely enjoyable!

So the winners are.....

Michelle Stanton,

Victoria Alcock,

Kate, who left a lovely Message

Saraeden, a lovely lady who follows me here and on Twitter


Dotsandspots, another lovely follower

I can't thank all my customers enough and I would love to have given you all a little something, maybe I'll have to think about something for next Christmas

more fairs and Sutil

This weekend I did some more Christmas Fairs and they were the worst ones this year. But I have a theory... those that have been buying before this weekend are well prepared so have now finished or are close to finishing their shopping. Now although I'm quite a Christmassy person with all my decorations up I have noticed that its not very Christmassy out there and I haven't done much shopping and I think there are lots of people out there feeling the same. So this weekend I'm doing my last fair at Brackley Town Hall, I'm really looking forward to it and gonna try to make it a good one.

Now as you've seen plenty of photos of my stall I thought I would also tell you about my Saturday evening. Grandma and Grandad came up and looked after the little ones so that Rob and I could go out to his Christmas do, and boy was it good, I got all dressed up and almost as soon as I walked in I was stood next to the most gorgeous man in the company and no it wasn't Rob!!! It was of course Adrian Sutil!!! The evening was great, everything free which is definately the way it should be, 5 course meal (food ok but waitressing was really bad, wanted to get up and organise!) but I think one of the best bits was the dodgems!

Need to do a bit more for Saturdays Fair whilst also childminding and getting ready for an Ofsted inspection on Monday!

Don't forget its the last week to enter my Christmas Free Prize Drawer, so go and check out my Folksy and Etsy Shops and buy something, there are lots of items that are stocking filler prices!

Personalised Christmas Decorations

So I have been thinking of these for a few weeks but hadn't got round to giving it a try until this week. I reached 1000 tweets and did a giveaway to the first person who tweeted me back and it was the lovely Lynsey at SwirlyArts. So I sent her a scarflace and her beautiful girls a personalised Christmas Decoration each.

If you would like one for your little ones please check out my folksy shop. And don't forget if you buy from me before 12th December you will be entered into my Christmas Prize Drawer.
