Musings Friday

Hello I cant believe Christmas is over and its new years eve already!!!  I haven't crafted or been able to craft for a long time due to so much going on so yesterday I sat down and worked with Sj's newest Buy it now musing which is lovely! 

It comes with a star backing paper, decopage set and a uncoloured image for you to work your magic on and all for the fabulous price of £1.50. You can get it HERE over at Little Musings

This image would be perfect for some many things, adoption, dedications etc or just a simple card like I have made with a Elegant word art sentiment all about boys.

A christmas Eve Surprise

For some time I have always wanted a dolls house and my daughter has also wanted one especially as she has seen what my Uncle can make.  So this year our wish came true and my aunty and uncle arrived today with a very special handcrafted surprise!

Beautiful isnt it!  I cant bear the thought of any one touching it lol and I also cant wait to add lots more furniture and people to it!  Its currently sat in my living room so I can keep watch over the children playing with it.

I hope santa brings you lots of surprises this christmas!
