"Bags & Boxes"

Hello Blog friends and welcome to my little corner of the amazing wonders of Blogland.
I am afraid my Mojo is still relaxing somewhere in the sunshine I think.  Will he be back soon?? well your guess is as good as mine!!!!  If it were me I would be staying away till the weather here got better.  
I hope you are all safe and dry where ever you are.  I feel for these poor people who are flooded out.  I know how it effected my friend Pearl and how long it took for her to get back into her house.  She is now coping with felling trees in the little bit of woodland in her garden.  Lots of the trees blew down but also brought down others with the "domino" effect!!!  Cant even get some of the wood for the fire, it is all Pine Trees.  They are not good for burning, they spark and leave sticky resin in your chimney.
Anyway I have nothing new at the moment.  I have been working on Projects for the Card Classes at the Tearoom starting again on the 14th January. 
Here are some Bags and Boxes that were given out to some of my friends and neighbours at Christmas.  I filled the Bags with Tablet and Truffles, Boxes just Tablet.

Boxes made with bargain papers I got at Dunelm Mills some time ago

Lids decorated with Roses and leaves using SB Dies

 Bags made using Lidl Card.  

Hopefully they will bring out more soon, it is fantastic card to work with and a very reasonable price.

That`s it for today folks, I am off to prepare some things for a family Dinner here tomorrow.
Have been out to the shops, got in supplies hopefully that`s it because the weather is really wild.
Thank you so much for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time

"Happy New Year"

Hello everyone  from a very damp and miserable Perthshire.
I hope you all had a great Christmas and Santa was good to you.  
Santa left me some lovely Crafty Goodies ...  guess what?? ... he forgot to sprinkle some "inspiration" amongst them.   Unfortunately they are still lying looking at me and me looking at them!!!!!  If anyone finds my Mojo wandering about can you direct him back home to the kitchen please.....LOL!!
I hope like me you are all looking forward to 2014 and all the good things it will bring.
2013 was a rather exciting year for me both in crafting and in life.  
Our son was awarded and received his O.B.E.   
Hazel got "all clears" from the hospital.   I even managed to persuade her to start her Blog.   Hazel makes wonderful Gift Baskets and other wonderful creations to order, she does them up so beautifully.  I have also got her making her own cards.  Hazel got a Grand Calibur as an early Christmas gift and has been having great fun using and buying Dies as well as other Crafty Goodies.
That plus lots of other things have made 2013 a great year for me and my family.
Thank you all for your wonderful support by visiting, commenting, and encouraging me by providing inspiration in your projects. So many talented people to share my Blogging Journey with.
May you all have a Happy, Healthy, and Creative 2014

Simple card for you all
Don`t think it really needs any explaining 

Cheers!! Happy 2014
Thank you for stopping by I really appreciate it
Till next time
God Bless
