Greetings from a cold and freezing north! It is still white here, and colder weather and more snow forecast. I have not got any cards to show, as I did not take any of my stash with me, as I thought I would not have time to craft. I wish I did now! I am passing time by playing WII, guitar hero, and watching all the latest kids movies.
We are having guests this evening which I am looking forward to. I thought I would just take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year. I hope that 2009 brings health and happiness to all. And for many of us, the opportunity to put 2008 behind us! TC all

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow..... It has been snowing all day and the Christmas feeling is ooooooozing through the door! We have come up country to our holiday home, and I am soooo enjoying the time off! Yesterday, the boys and I went off to our forest looking for a Christmas tree, and then chopped it down and dragged it home. It's now taken pride of place in the lounge now, and although its a bit skew...it looks lovely! This morning we got up early and went and did a big food shop, and I have started preparing all the trimmings for Christmas. My OH arrives tomorrow night and hopefully we will be all systems go. If time allows, I will shoot some more snowy pictures and share my white christmas with you all! TC and have a wonderful Christmas where ever you are. Jillx

Greetings from Finland! Where does time go??? It was ages since I last posted, but I can promise, I have not been completly idle. I have made and sent all my Christmas cards, made and sent MOST of my gifts, made all these matchboxes, and in the process of making the last of my wine bottle cards. My youngest is at nursery school, and there are eight teaches in total, who all need gifts. I have made these matchboxes, and I will wrap them in cellophane with a candle. Got to get them wrapped by Friday.
Also today... I have made a big batch of shortbread, almond biscuits, and some other home made biscuit, 2 fruit cakes, and have pre cooked all my meals for the week! Am I effective or what!!!???!!! So hopefully I will be forgiven for not posting!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and hopefully I will be a bit more active this week!
