Starting as I mean to go on . . . . .

Happy New Year one and all! Hope you have all recovered from last night. I have been feeling somewhat sluggish today, too little sleep probably. I think the Christmas holidays can do that to you, and all the days merge into each other. I feel the need to get back to normal now, get the card making stuff out and get going!

Talking of card making stuff, look at my beautiful box of ribbons - a recent QVC purchase. They are from American Crafts and there was a choice between grosgrain and satin. I went for the grosgrain as I love the texture. Now I have a ribbon for every colour card I could possibly make.

I also bought these lovely papers, rub-ons etc and Thickers letters - also from American Crafts, they're called Blue Skies. I can't wait to have a go with them, although really I should save them for my foray into scrap booking.

My first job this year is to update my birthday list so that I know who I am making for and when. It's almost like my bible for the year. I've got Mark's birthday this coming week - I know what I want to do but it depends on my Silhouette die cutting machine doing what I want it to. I haven't used it for a year so I'm a bit nervous of it. I'm also going to make a few Christmas cards ready for this coming year - I know it sounds a bit mad - but I realised last year that there simply wasn't enough time to get them all done, and then I felt a bit sad that I couldn't send out as many hand made cards as I usually do.
Oh, I've just watched the last Gavin and Stacey - so good, but so sad it has finished. I agree that it had to go out on a high, but it's such a great programme I didn't want it to end. Ah well, perhaps I'll treat myself to the boxed set at some point. Talking of which, I am really enjoying the boxed set of Sex and the City that I got for Christmas - what a treat.
Anyway ta ta for now.
