19th Day of Advent

I finally have sent off the parcels that needed to be sent, and while writing this am also tidying up my daughter Aimee's bedroom,( she is home for Christmas) which has some of my "stuff" in it!! Multitasking is not the word! or you could say a woman's work is never done! Firstly the winners of the bottles of Alochol ink are
Congratulations and please email me your snail mail addresses!
I made another Christmas card today. This time I layered Crafty Individuals papers, with Co-ordinations and then chalked the card. I embossed baubles from my collection on to the card in black, and stickles them I have a passion for the ruby slippers stickles! Then i punched holes in the top of the baubles , and glued on ribbon to them. It has become sort of ethereal!
More tomorrow... off now to dust and vacuum!

Oh I like this one - it looks very 3d. When I read that you were tidying you daughter's room as she was coming home for Christmas - I thought don't worry - it will only get messed up again. (Sorry I had son's and that was the first thing that popped into my brain.) Then I laughed when the next sentence was that you had your things in there!

It's a doddle isn't it working, shopping, cooking, cleaning and looking after everybody - and any pets.

The joys of being a mum! Hope you get to put your feet up at some time over the holiday and that you get 'spoilt' too.
