Busy December

I've been working hard for last couple of weeks and I really can't see the results.. I've been making doorstops, cushions, Christmas decorations, cakes (yummy yummy cakes!), doing lots of cleaning and somehow everything looks the same. I can't believe it's nearly Christmas and I still haven't managed to do half of the things I need to do. 
The Cookie Day was a disaster, no-one turned up as everyone was busy. I have to admit, I was very disappointed. And sad. But my lovely boyfriend and our house-mate made the weekend absolutely fantastic! 
The things I did on the weekend (I just realised it's already thursday!! When? How?!):
  1. Baked some cupcakes. Dead easy, dead delicious!
  2. Put a Christmas tree up and half dressed it.
  3. Did mulled wine. Then drunk it.
  4. Did a little party.
  5. Watched the best movie ever made (I mean the best!) called "Baraka". 
  6. Thought a lot.
  7. Went out to my favourite local pub and drunk the best beer - Hobgoblin.
  8. Was visited by my sister and the cutest baby boy (I soooo love him!)
  9. Finished making doorstops.
  10. Sold all doorstops.
  11. Drunk some more wine.
  12. Drunk some more beer.
  13. Chatted, chatted, chatted...
Here are the cupcakes. Just to make you want them ;)

I made lots of angels. Will put pictures soon!

Christmas Cards

I finished making the Christmas cards. They are completely different to what I had in mind, but at least they are still simple. Made 40 for now, but thinking of making more as already sold half of it and need to take some to one shop plus need some for the Cookie Day as well.


And that's where it all happened. I guessed I can't really work in a clean place..

Ok, going back to work. And it sucks as my friends are sitting in the kitchen having a little party.. And it's super cool outside with lots of snow.. I'd better get back before I start crying...


PS. For a first time since I moved to the house I can hear children playing and laughing outside. I really like it :)
PS2. By the way, the cards are much more colourful in reality than on the photos. I definitely need a new camera. Anyone wants to get me one for Christmas?
