Todays been a really long day.... day 2 of the half term.... boo.

We went to a christening yesterday, that was good, the kids had fun :) they had a good dj that played games for prizes and had silly hats and glasses to put on so it kept the kids entertained for a while :) I did make a nice forever friends christening card but forgot to take a piccy of it.

Evening all

It's been a really long boring weekend for me this week.... boo....

Went shopping in Liverpool and didn't get what i wanted, didn't even buy ANY craft stuff (WOW) but i did look!!

We've been trying to get Christmas sorted out, what everyone wants, ect. I've got everything for the kids now :) yay!! One job sorted out :) Just the rest of the family now.

I've found that kobe is so much easier than ellie to buy for all the time. Kobes into so many things that you have a good range of things you can get him and Eloise likes doing her crafting & colouring and after i've bought some craft stuff i get abit stuck! All sorted for this year now though, thankfully.

I've asked Santa for some stampotique stamps and a few other little crafty bits :) I'm waiting to see what the new greeting farm stamps are in November as well.....

Off to find something to do, see u tomorrow :)

New stamps!!

Out of my birthday money i got i put some towards to the cost of my new set of pro markers (all the new colours) i also bought myself a nice new coat and..... i bought some magnolia stamps, tilda ones :)

I'd only had 2 of these which i never really used so i didn't bother buying more but i'm starting to take to them :) I bought 2 to make bookmarks with, a pile of books and tilda reading. I also bought 5 more but 2 are pre orders so i don't have them yet :(
