Sleeps till Christmas


Last week Sam asked me if I could make her one of the gingerbread chalkboards for a friend, I said yes, so on Monday she turned up after work with a board from hobbycraft...


Anyway I set to work after Steven went to bed Monday evening, but on looking through my stash found I didn't have any gingham ribbon or the right colour buttons. I did try fabric land, but they had nothing, so had to resort to tartan ribbon and also coloured some buttons...

Anyway, it was ready for her to pick up Friday morning to give to her friend on the way to work...


Yesterday I dug mine out along with my gingerbread yankee candle train, it being the 1st of December....


I just love the smell of the cinnamon stick tart... x

What a cute idea Marie! Think I'm gonna have to "borrow" that one to make for Sophie! Oooh I love Yankee candles too especially the christmas scented ones!
Have a great week!
