Christmas shopping!

Oh dear, I've gone and let another week go by with no posts. I don't know where time is going at the moment, it's all work, college, work at the moment. I have been spending a lot of time shopping as well though so I thought I'd share some of the things I've been buying- there might be some ideas here for good gifts for your friends and family.

This beautiful necklace from Contrary:

A photo manipulation from bunny:

I won't share the manipulation bunny did for me as I don't want the recipient to see it yet but there are loads of examples of her fab work on her flickr too.

Cute Christmas tree garland from Kala:

Totally beautiful and intricate crocheted cuff from Gilfling:

I've bought loads more besides these great items so I'll post some more later in the week. Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. x

So thanks to the respondents of my last post there will soon be three more opportunities to pay it forward.

Pinky has posted hers already, so go check it out now.

Keep an eye on Rhi & Kat's blogs for their PIFs.

Have a lovely weekend all x

London photos and paying it forward

Oh dear, I've nearly let a week go by again with no blogging. As an apology, there's a giveaway with a difference at the end of this post.

First up though, here are some pictures from my afternoon in London last Friday. I was playing around with the colour accent setting on my camera in Trafalgar Square which kept me amused for quite a while.

London Mosaic

You can see all the photos on my flickr page.

So now on to the 2nd part of today's post:
Lu of blu-shed and lusummers on etsy had a Pay It Forward giveaway on her blog and I was one of the lucky recipients so now it's my turn to pay it forward...
The 'pay it forward' rules are:
1) anyone with a blog can join;
2) the first three people to leave a comment on this post will receive a handmade goody from me and I have 365 days in which to send it to you;
3) in return, you have to pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

So if you'd like some free handmade goodies from me, leave a comment below and then offer the same on your blog. x

Looking forward to Christmas

So sorry I've been absent for over a week, I had a horrid cold/flu bug for most of that time. I've been left with one of those annoying coughs though that starts as soon as I lay down. Ugh.

Well anyway, the point of the post today is Christmas. As you know, I've been making stuff for Christmas for quite a while but there's plenty more to go- cards, decorations, presents and so on.

So if you're ready to start Christmas crafting too, here are some places to go visit...

Join the 2nd Annual Holiday Ornament swap- I have and it's going to be fun!
