Hello friends
I received a nice surprise yesterday, my blog has been featured
on '15 beautiful crafting blogs' by dotcomgiftshop.

They chose to display the picture of my advent frame...
(it's not just me that is getting Christmassy!)
All the details are here.
In case you haven't heard of dotcomgiftshop - it is a brilliant website
for pretty and unusual gifts.  
I am currently trying to convince the boys we need one of the cake stands,
they are gorgeous! 

Because I've already mentioned Christmas I'm going to share another festive favourite 
project of mine.  I'm itching to display this again at home. 
Graphic 45 papers adhered to chipboard and a Bind it All to create the spine.
The flip over numbers are created from Labels Twenty-Two, Classic Petal Edgeabilities
under the lace and a lovely big stencilled Layered Poinsettia
Another batch of Charity Add-On Kits are going out today, I've been at my London job 
but Elliott has been helping out - closely supervised by Bella!

Take care friends - have a wonderful weekend.
I'm back soon.

Hi Christine. Congratulations. How good must you feel to be one of the top 15! I will have a look after this. I love the advent frame and also the countdown calender. It will soon be time to put it out, you know how time flies: ) Glad to hear that Elliott has lots of kits to send out. That means more money for RM House. Hope you all have a good weekend. Take care.

Well done Christine. Also really like the countdown calendar, must have a go at making one, far nicer than the commercial advent calendars around and I can reward myself with a little chocolate everytime I remember to turn the numbers over! JuliaT x

Morning Christine, Congratulations, they know a good thing when they see it. It is lovely to see your advent calendar again, always beautiful, and the countdown calendar is gorgeous.
I received my 'add on' kit on Wednesday, it arrived alongside lots of other mail, all were soaking wet, as the rain was horrendous, thankfully my kit was OK.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
