Christmas Wishes ♥

At long last...
I'm all finished with the buying, wrapping and writing, all that's left to do now is deliver the last few gifts, which I'll get done as soon as I've finished at work tomorrow.

I've made very few Christmas cards this year - 3 to be precise - just because of a lack of time, maybe I should really make a start on them before November huh?
But I made a stack of quick and easy gift tags.

I simply LOVE brown paper (and Kraft) and for me, there's nothing nicer than 'brown paper packages tied up with string', made a little more festive with the addition of some fat, stripey red and white ribbon, and a candy cane.

I made some more boxes too, to put small gifts in, though my red/white/kraft colour scheme went out of the window for these.

Nice and quick to make too...a simply box that's held closed by the belly band.

All that's left to say is A Very Merry Christmas to everyone.
I hope all your wishes come true.
Lots of Love

Maja and Joy Craft - Winner!

I'm sorry I couldn't get on here last evening to pick a winner...I was out with the girlies :)
It was a lovely evening and a very welcome break after a long week at work with lots of extra hours spent trying to catch up after my week off.

So without any further waffle and delay, Mr Random picked a number...

Congratulations Caz

Maja and Magnolia Winner ♥

It's been a busy old week to say the least.
We've worked longer hours on our week off work than we do when in work...but it's been a fabulous (if tiring) break.
We have achieved most of what we'd planned with the exception of the boiler. The engineer phoned to say it couldn't be done this week but they would book it in for the week before Christmas...not on your bloody Nellie!
I have enough to do without the disruption of the boiler being replaced so we've delayed it until after Christmas now.

On Wednesday we picked up our passports and headed over the border into Yorkshire to see the lovely Christine and the equally lovely Barry. We had such a fabulous time but the day just vanished! We had lunch  and lots of laughs in a very nice pub and I think we just chatted the day away.
The drive there was longer than usual due to accidents on the motorway, but the drive home was even worse! Next time I shall just pack a suitcase and stay the week ha! 

On Thursday we went to Bury to do some Christmas shopping and met my Mum and Dad for lunch.
We had another lovely day out and got an awful lot of the Christmas shopping done.
I am going to spend the weekend wrapping all the gifts and writing cards in the hope that by the time I go back to work on Monday I will have (almost) conquered  Christmas :)

Unfortunately, most nights it's been anything from 10pm to 11pm before we've been sitting down and so I've not ventured into blogland until tonight...for that I apologise....but I am here with the candy winner.

Mr Random picked the number...

Congratulations not the Christine I went to visit but t'other Christine (Nana seaside) 
If you can please EMAIL me with your full postal address and I can get your parcel posted on Monday.

Thank you to everyone that entered.
Ready for another little one?
