Yipeeeee... I got round to writing this in less than a month this time ! Considering the month I have just had, that's quite an achievement. John is now living permanently in the UK to look or work and be there for his Mum. It has been a very long and hard decision to make, but we both feel its for the best and we know our love is strong enough for us to survive this. The plan is that early next year at the latest, I will join him back in the UK. It's going to be very hard for us but we can and will do it. I am already on count down till I see him, 72 days ! In the mean time I have also got a new job, I have moved from working at Epcot to one of the resort hotels. At the moment I am still in training but it is going well. I am hoping it will give me some great job skills for the move back to the UK and also a slightly more flexible schedule and therefore maybe some more time to craft !

I have been busy making lots of Small things ready for my craft fair, I think its important to have a variety of priced items and that way hopefully more will sell. I have been purchasing quite a few things from Michael's from their Dollar bins and then altering them. the 1st thing was these notebooks. I didn't like the pictures on the fronts so I cut out a variety of things using of course my trusty Cricut and went about changing them, added a bit of ribbon and there you have it, a small inexpensive gift. lets just hope they sell otherwise I have a lot of note taking to do !

Cupcakes! what a big thing they have become, so I have jumped on the band wagon and made some of these adorable sock cupcakes. I got the idea from the cricut website (I think from green bean) and have fallen in love with them. I had one made when a friend popped by and bought it straight away! I had to search hard for more socks as the shops around here are now out of wintry things but finally got some at my local M's and went ahead and made these this morning. They are just SO easy to make, the hardest part was getting the film to sit nicely around them. I see making quite a few more of these.

Lastly I made a couple more Hello Kitty bits but they have sold before I can get pictures of them up here. I will try and make some more before the next time I write and show you those.
Have a good week everyone, spring is on its way.
Thanks for stopping by
