Shopping in Florida part 1

Thought I would start off by showing you my Michaels receipts ;-) but it's a little worrying, as didn't find the shop till my second week.

Just imagine if I had found it in the first, lol... it was just a 10 minute walk from where we were staying in International Drive...

Do you like the boxes I brought there? (they worked out at just over £4 each). I brought them with the idea of keeping themes/projects in them, so can pick the box I want and have everything needed already in there.

Like this one having lots of Disney and Birthday bits brought for Stevens album and book. They are 12x12 so take full scrapbook papers too.

I managed to get this album from the The Magic Kingdom where we celebrated Steven's birthday.

And these from Downtown Disney, again for Steven.

These were from Michaels, they were on the long receipt of 56 items :-)

Oh and finally, thought I had better show you how much my daughter knows me.

She had cut the ribbon and elastic off the Victoria Secrets bags and clothes she bought while on holiday and gave them all to me, lol...(hubby was not amused, hehehe)

Liebster Blog Award

I was given this award by Svjetlana

The idea of this one is promote small blogs, less then 200 follower and pass it to 5 other small blogs.

The rules are:

1. link the award back to person who gave it to you
2. Pass in to 5 small blogers
3. leave comments on their blogs
4. Liebster in German means dearest

I had trouble doing this as I don't read many blogs and I know a lot of people don't like to pass it on, but I said to Svjetlana I would give it a go.

Chocolate spoons

Steven had been busy mug painting again for Christmas presents, so came up with the idea for giving little boxes of tea or coffee with them. But my daughter and her fiancé prefer hot chocolate, so came up with the idea of giving them some chocolate spoons to with them...

Years ago you could buy these from BHS and Sam always looked forward to finding them in her Christmas stocking, but alas, like all good things they come to an end and stopped selling them.

We always joked saying we would make them, but like anything with me, it seems the ideas are there in my head, it's the actually getting round to making them, lol...

BUT before Christmas I managed to make them and they went down a storm, they loved them, trouble is they are expecting them again this year and next, lol...
