Back To Normal!

Thank you so much to everyone who commented on my last post.  I really had lost interest for a little while but all your lovely comments and an hour or so in Hobbycraft, seems to have sorted me out!!

I've had a few ideas for Christmas decorations, I've got lots of ideas of things I want to make for people for Christmas presents (my sister will be getting LOTS of handmade stuff this year!) and some more ideas for some crafty things I want to do with my girlies for Christmas.  So my crafty mojo is definitely back!!

Had a lovely browse around Hobbycraft this morning with the intention of buying supplies for Christmas decorations for the craft fair at the weekend.  This is what I came back with...

Does it look like christmas yet??

Got this little lot home, threw the rest of the shopping in the kitchen, luckily Lillie stayed asleep so I had an hour or so to start snipping!  Results so far....

As Im sure you can tell, they are going be robins, snowmen and penguins!  They need eyes but have put in my order at the lovely paper-and-string so Im sure my lovely decs will be able to see soon :)

Spent an hour on Pinterest last night too which was fab.  It was here I've found some lovely ideas to do with the girls for Christmas.  Take a look at my Christmas Craft Ideas board and see what I will (possibly) be getting up to over the next few weeks!

So, crafting is, once again, taking over in my house!  The housework has been left, dinner will be a takeaway, but hubby wont mind as long as there is a clear route from the front door to his xbox (some new game came out today so conversation will be at a minimum for the next few nights!)

Thanks again for helping me get back on track!

  1. Glad your back in the saddle, so to speak! Really love your robins-penguins-snowmen-to-be! Can't wait to see the end result! I always find Hobbycraft does the trick for me too! x

  2. Sorry that should read - 'glad YOU'RE back in the saddle' Very bad grammar - shame on me lol! x

  3. YAY! Glad to hear you have your crafty mojo back :-)
    I love Paper and String too.
    Look forward to seeing your finished decorations :-)

  4. I'm so glad your feeling "crafty" again, theres nothing worse than getting stuck in that rut.
    Cant wait to see what you create with your purchases.
