Banner Time

Waking up to a light sprinkling of snow made me feel so Christmassy this morning, although that soon changed when I got brain freeze on the walk back from school, must get myself a big woolly hat. 
So, what with the snow and all, it may very well still only be November (and I'm not normally one for decking the halls this early), but I've been in the loft and brought down the boxes marked 'XMAS'. I surprised myself at how well packed they were, I must have had a burst of organisation as I packed them away in January. I don't know about you, but I have an expensive addiction..... to Christmas magazines. I've bought so many that I got home on Monday with a shiny new plastic wrapped magazine of Christmas promise only to realise that I'd bought that one already, so that's it now, I am STOPPING with the magazine obsession....I've even kept old Christmas mags from 2007.... please tell me I'm not the only one? 

Anyway, I'm off now to post off an order, I was there the other day with 8 parcels all going Air Mail to various far off destinations (all needing customs labels filled out and proofs of postage) and there was quite a queue forming behind me - but I never look back these days as I know there'll always be a few huffy puffy noises coming from the queue - oops). 
But here's a few new banners in the meantime.....

Hope there's not too much snow where you are today, I ordered 2 new PINK sledges the other day for the girls (of course) just in case we get snowed in again like we did last winter! Have fun.

Okay, so lets ignore the huge elephant in the room and not mention the severe lack of posts of late.... right so, apart from a couple of local fairs, sewing orders in time for final Christmas posting dates to the States and Australia and sickly children what have I been up to? Well, I guess that's about it really. The More Than A Mama fayre on the 12th Nov was enormously successful so I'm looking forward to the next one on Wed 8th Dec, with mulled wine, pampering, twinkly lights and festive music, not to mention it's my birthday that day, I may have to give away little gifts to the first 10 customers at my stall that night :o)

I had a stall at Craft Fair last Saturday too which was slow but not too sad, I'm glad I brought along some sewing, not to mention the HUGE advantage of having Nevie-Pie Cakes at the stall next to me, breakfast and lunch that day consisted of a mince pie, a vanilla cupcake and a delicious macaroon too, I think that covered most of the food groups, oh and I chomped on a home made sausage roll, so that's the protein box ticked too!

Anyway, to keep you updated on some festive creations, here's a few pics to keep you going until the next posting, whenever that may be....


There you have it, short but sweet, I shall return soon (ish). Hope everyone's doing well with their festive creations, fairs and such-the-like, have fun :o)

It's true, I'm guilty of a blog blip yet again.
As I've said before, I'm doing lots of fairs this month and next and I've been stitching away making stock and trying to get on with some very lovely orders too. So, before you think I've gone and left the country, here's some of my latest makes, these will be on my stall on FRIDAY, eeeek, still so much to do. I shall be at the More Than A Mama Christmas Fayre at Berkhamsted Civic Centre on Frriday 12th Nov from 9am-12.30pm, hope some of you can make it.

So here are some of the goodies I'll have at my stall...
as well as some...
Tooth Fairy Monsters, Little Birdie Tooth Fairy Pillows, Bookmarks & Moustache Pencils.

So much to do still, I'm off to sew, hope you are all having a productive week.
