Bits and Pieces and Christmas Wishes

Just a quick catch up with some recent photos.

I've got visitors arriving this afternoon to stay for a few days so I'm not sure when I'll get another chance to update my waffle.

We had a busy weekend with shopping, a trip to the theatre ("The Country Wife" at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket - very good, very funny) and attending a carol concert. On Sunday evening we put the tree up, this year we have a blue and silver theme. Obviously blue and silver aren't "in" this year because getting blue ribbon for our parcel wrapping is nigh on impossible!
Here's the tree unlit:
..... and with the lights on, though in daylight. There are 440 lights on there, believe it or not.
Next a few more cards - little bitty mini ones using Crate papers and one from another batch of various BG Figgy Pudding Cuttlebug tree cards.

Lastly, the address book I've tarted up for part of my friend Dani's Christmas present, I hope she likes it - and I hope it gets there in time as it just went in the post yesterday.

All for now, if I don't get back here before the Big Day - Happy Christmas to all my crafting friends, I hope Father Christmas is very kind to you and that you all have a wonderful, peaceful Christmastime.

If the address book is for your friend then it's not my secret santa, so I know it's not your pressie under my tree! LOL

Have a wonderful Christmas and a fabulous New Year to you and your DH.

Thanks for being a friend in 2007.
