Christmas Me To You

I've had some exciting news today . . . I've been planning, saving and dreaming about the final stage of the renovations on my little flat.  I was worried I hadn't saved enough but I got the first quote through today and it just happens to be exactly what I have saved!  I'm so excited to finally be confident that the renovations will be going ahead as planned!

Christmas Gift Box

This is my boyfriends Christmas present, or at least the box I'll be popping it into.  I've just ordered myself some green and red tissue paper to scrunch up and pop in the box.  Hopefully that will stop him guessing what it is.  He's already guessed half his presents!  - POUT.

Pink Floral Decoupage

Oh I'm still feeling very rough, but at least a good night's sleep got rid of the fever so just the usual sniffs and snuffles to deal with.  Being poorly is a good excuse to blow off the cleaning and make some cards for the evening.
