I'm Blog of the Month....

Papercraft Inspirations have a Blog of the Month and I was super excited when I opened November's issue to find it's ME! 


About 6 months ago I got an email from the magazine to say they were interested in showcasing my blog and asked me to send a few of my favourite cards.   I'd forgotten all about it...so imagine my surprise when I opened the magazine at lunch time when I bought it and there I was.  The magazines are always about a month later arriving here in NZ.

Our weekend was super busy ~ we did some Christmas shopping, got our tree up and decorated and for once my hubby did some impulsive buying.... He NEVER buys anything on impulse.  We had gone to look at a new sofa for our dinning area ~ and he saw a nice two seater that was 75% off and bought it on the spot.  It got delivered on Sunday and we found it was about a foot longer than the old one.  So some rearranging was needed which resulted in having to clean the carpet.  But it's all looking good now


Hope you are not too stressed in the lead up to Christmas.  I'm off to a team lunch tomorrow.  Weekend busy and next week our neighbourhood barbeque is here on Wednesday and then the following Sat my parents arrive... in no time it will be Christmas Day!
