Hello everyone. I hope you all had a lovely, peaceful Christmas. We had a lovely time with family, and are now enjoying a quiet few days (playing with our presents!).
I was a very lucky girl at Christmas and received some fab presents, which I thought I would share with you today, although I apologise for the poor quality of the photos.
I got two sets of Dylusions inks as well as these great rubber stamps. These are in readiness for starting Art Journaling which I have been interested in for a while, although I confess to being slightly nervous of doing it wrong. I have been slowly building up a collection of acrylic paints, stencils and inks, and I think now I am ready to make a start.
I also got a set of star shaped Nestabilities dies that I have wanted for ages, a flourish die from Memory Box and a 2-disc set of Art Journaling DVDs by Kate Crane.
A much wanted addition to my tool kit from my mum and dad.
The cake stand was a present from the teachers I work with who know that I love to bake cakes. A very thoughtful and much appreciated present.
As a huge fan of the Great British Bake Off, this book was a lovely surprise. The recipes look amazing and I can't wait to try some of them out.
The second series of Glee and a Robert Pattison DVD - these will keep me happy for hours!
Not to mention some edible goodies and a bottle of Pimms!
I was indeed a lucky girl. I also got a couple of calendars and a new charm for my Lovelinks bracelet. But the present that meant the most was from my children. We have had a pretty tough year and Mark and I haven't been able to go out together, so the children saved their money and gave us some to have a meal out - just the two of us. It was so thoughtful of them and unexpected and it made me cry,
So, I hope you are enjoying your presents as much as I am enjoying mine.
