Happy December!

...and while we're at it, happy November and a bit of October too ;-)

I don't believe I've ever gone quite so long without updating my blog before, and whilst I have excuses reasons, I'm not going to bore you with the details, other than saying that along with the end of school/lead up to Christmas goings on that are standard at this time of year, we have been to three weddings in the past five weeks (with two more to come before mid February) and I have also been learning to drive my new and very exciting "World's Smallest and Smartest Kitchen" aka the Thermomix.

So between those things, plus life in general, blog time has very much taken a back seat, and while I've enjoyed having entire days without even switching the computer on, I feel bad to have slacked off so much.

Ok, so I went into the details after all... :-)

All this is not to say that I haven't been stamping.  There were three wedding cards at the very least, but I have also been busying myself with teacher gifts and Christmas craft, as well as a workshop here and there as well.

And planning.  I like the end of a year, as it means the start of a new one is not too far away and I love a new year for fresh beginnings and new adventures.  And I'm a tad bit excited about some fresh beginnings and new adventures of my own :-)

So anyway, I'll be back shortly (no, really, I will) to show and tell you about a great new promotion that's happening this month, plus the all new Summer Mini catalogue that starts TODAY!

I'm off shortly to wake up my small girl, collect my big girl from school, then get them both into their leotards for gymnastics this afternoon.

In the meantime, here's the card that I made for two of the three recent weddings...

May I say that I am completely and totally in love with the Basic Pearls Jewels in this year's Idea Book & Catalogue.  Like totally.

At $9.50 for a sheet containing 150 of those babies in three different sizes, plus three strips of joined ones, they're an absolute steal!

Right, off to bust out some cartwheels and round offs with the kiddos...

Back soon!
