We're Home!

Hello everyone,

We arrived home safe and sound from our month long holiday to Thailand and Vietnam. What an amazing experience it was; from the delicious food to the sights and smells of these countries. It's now time to go through our 2004 photos (nearly had heart attack when I realised the amount we'd taken)!! and place them in some sort of order and hopefully begin a scrapbook of our travels.

I am so looking forward to catching up with our friends and all my lovely ladies who attend classes, technique days and just come along for a chat and coffee. Oh, it's so nice to drink 'real' coffee again!

Hubby returns to work tomorrow so I will be sending out a newsletter to all my lovelies regarding class and technique dates.

A lot of you know I just adore 'moth' orchids. Will you look at this arrangement! We could have brought home so many of these beauties, but Customs may have had something to say about it. Now I'd definitely know if that was missing from my front patio ladies!!

Christmas Decorations

Hi everyone,

I had a play last week with my new Ornament Keepsakes dies and stamp set. I have been loving the work some of our demonstrators have done on the ornament, so I found the instructions to make the gorgeous ornament on the front of our Holiday Catalogue, but I decided to omit the linen thread from it.  I wanted to try another colour and as I've always loved blue, decided to try a more simple adaptation. They take a little time, but I'm sure you'd agree, they are so lovely.


I always decorate my living room on 1 December but as I had a technique class last week, thought it would be nice to have it spruced up for the ladies. I made them up little gift bottles of chocolates, along with afternoon tea. Following the class I then drove up to help my son and his wife move homes! I was there with them for 3 days and then came home totally pooped; so was very pleased I'd decorated prior to my departure.

Till next time,
