So Exciting!

I'm really happy today because I have had my first comment on my blog. Thanks so much to Vanessa at Coco Rose Textiles, whose blog is one of my favourites. It's really good to know that I'm not just talking to myself (and my parents who follow my blog!) - you never quite know if anyone out there is reading your posts. I have been too shy to comment on all the other blogs that I read - apart from when Lucy at Attic24 had her baby recently - but I was very excited by the beautiful mugs on Vanessa's give away, and it galvanised me into action. Fingers crossed!!

Today I have received an exciting box of goodies from Cake Craft Shop - new sprinkles for my cupcakes - pretty hearts, flowers and confetti, as well as some silver and gold balls. I've also ordered some stars and butterflies from another supplier - Cupcake Style. This will keep me going for ages (or so I keep telling Mark!!). I generally make a batch of cupcakes each weekend - the children love them so much and I try to vary the colour scheme each time. Lots of scope now.

Gosh, this week is going slowly. It feels like the end of the week, not Tuesday. I think it might be because the weekend was so hectic and we didn't really have much time to recharge our batteries. This weekend isn't going to be much better unfortunately, and there will be precious little time for card making - I'm really going to have to make up for it at half term.

I'm off to watch a new series - Vampire Diaries. I've read the books, they were OK. They're no where near as good as the Twilight Saga and the Sookie Stackhouse series though. We shall see.

Until the next time.
