A few last christmas pictures for you all! There may be a few sale pictures for you soon as well! Above is a picture of the wreath I made this year. I have made a wreath for me and one for my parents for the past 3 years, the one I did for my parents turned out much better than mine this year!! I did mine in the cold and dark so it is a little bit untidy - but I love it all the same. It has everything christmassey in it - holly, ivy, mistletoe, fir and lots of other greenery too - yew, conifer, conkers and pine cones!!

This is a couple of the presents I wrapped this year. There was a very red theme!! I usually go for paper with lots pictures on, but this year I thought I would try and be a bit more co-ordinated so a trip to hobby craft and a few pennies lighter and this is what I came up with!! There was glitter everywhere!!
I had a fantastic christmas and I may do a present post at some point - no promises though!!
Hope you all had a fantastic christmas! xx

Its nearly christmas!!

Anyone else noticed the snow and ice!!! These are pictures of the ice we had a few weeks ago - it was my little winter wonderland. It has now turned into a snowy land, but parts of it are turning grey and melting now! It is very fitting for christmas and I hope it stays for just a little bit longer (but not on the roads!!!)
I hope you are all ready for christmas and that the snow and ice hasn't been too much of a problem for you all!!

What a week!

It has been one very very hectic week, with lots of things going on! My job means that any cold weather and we are super busy, so I have been doing more there too.

I have lots of pictures to share but my cable to connect phone to pc is a little broke and I am yet to venture into the cupboard of doom to get the spare! However I have been at my sisters and so she has taken a pic and emailed it to me!

We have been crafting the past few evenings, and this was a little make for my mum (she LOVES robins) it is already on her tree!

Keep an eye on blogvent if you want to see some more felt creations!

Winter wonderland

As you know I went to York at the end of last week and it was a winter wonderland, there was snow and icicles everywhere! I loved it and in the fun of it all I fell over twice, I had a soft landing on the mountains of snow though so it was ok!

There was of course the negative sides to the weather but I don't want to talk about those as it spoils the christmassy-ness of it all!!
Then the morning after I returned to Gloucester Mr Frost had left his lovely patterns all over my car and a glittery topping to all the tarmac!
