Our Advent Calendar

I have put it on display again this year and added 4 chocolate jaffa's to each draw, the problem is each day when we open it there are always, 1, 2 or 3 chocolates missing!! I have been informed today that Grace has eaten all chocolates from No.22! We will have to find a higher self to put it on. Not many sleeps to go now!! Leah

Exciting Plans for 2010!

These little windows from the kitchen will be saved and put in here.

A lovely weekend!

Hello, I wish that I had remembered my camera! I could have shared some beautiful scenes with you! Bishops Lodge is a beautiful place and the weather was perfect. I thought that our little marquee looked great, but my sales were not fantastic. I purchased some super sweet Christmas gifts, the boys sold all of their eggs and parsley plants (they usually do well!) We also met some other lovely stall holders, which is always fun (none of which have websites to share). Several stall holders told me that they have success at Fields Days, does anybody have any experience to share?? I must ask my farming friends. We are trying to work out which markets to will attend in 2010. Have a lovely Monday! Leah

Another handmade purchase!

Hello, just a quick post, we are going away tomorrow to Hay so I should really get off this computer! Here is another of my babies, we had her clipped for the first time during the school holidays, that was a very exciting and time consuming exercise with all 4 children! Then the weather turned cold, so I bought her this lovely coat from our local craft market, Meg has been in hospital too this week to be speyed. No medical appointments for any of us next week (touching wood!!) Have a wonderful weekend! Leah

World Card Making Day

Hello, I wish that I could say that I created this card for
World Card Making Day but I was extra busy on Saturday. This is a card I created last week, with some lovely bits and pieces from Craft Queen. After the craft market on Saturday, Harry had a trampoline accident and we spent the rest of the day/night in hospital! Poor Harry had 2 bones sticking out of his arm. It's now all bandaged up and we are waiting for surgery next week. Not much crafting between children and extra shifts at work! Thanks for stopping by! Leah
