Have you all a had a good Christmas? I hope Santa brought everything you wished for.
We've had a fabulous time over here ..... eaten too much, had way too much of the Christmas spirit (Hic!) and the craft room door still hasn't been opened.
It's been the first year in a while, where all the family has been together for the whole of the festive season ...... and it's been magical. Especially with the little man, getting all ready for Santa ......
Reindeer food sprinkled before bedtime
and a tasty treat left for Santa and Rudolph
Then of course opening all his presents on Christmas morning ........
And, not only did we have Christmas to celebrate ...... but our daughter Lauren and her partner GOT ENGAGED!! on Christmas Day.
So we've now got a wedding to look forward to (and save up for!) And no doubt I'll have all the stationary to design and make. It's not going to be for a couple of years though (so they say) so I should have plenty of time.
As the old craft room is not open for business ........ it's still covered in wrapping paper and Christmas ribbon ....... I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite makes from 2013. I'll try and keep it to just a couple from each month but you know how indecisive I can be. You'll find pictures on here, with links back to the original posts (just in case you missed any of them, or fancied another look maybe).
It's been a busy old year but lots of fun, and I've loved having you share it all with me. Let's hope that 2014 is full of the same.
So ...... Grab yourself a cuppa, pick a comfy chair, and let's go all the way back to the beginning of 2013.
January is a busy month for me, birthdays galore. And they all start with Stephen's Mum .......

One of my favourite Blog Challenge sites is Less is More. Here's one of my entries from February, very clean and simple, using the gorgeous Memory Box Poppy Die and the theme that week was Use Kraft and Kreme ......

Well done if you're still with me ...... I can go on a bit can't I?! I think I've taken up enough of your time for now. We're a third of the way through 2013 though. If you've enjoyed seeing what are my favourite makes and would like to see the rest of the year, I'll be back tomorrow with some more.
Thanks for popping by today. Enjoy the last weekend of the year ..... and if you're braving the weather to go to the sales then I hope you grab a bargain or two. Me, I'm staying at home, well I still have the final Tim Tag of 2013 to do and I think that's definitely going to end up on my favourites list!
Cheerio for now
