Getting back in a routine ....

Happy New Year! Well you can forgive me for saying that as I haven't blogged in a month and hey we are only 14 days into 2010!!
I don't know about you but we've been enjoying the snow to it's fullest! We have been out walking, sledging, making snowmen, having snowball fights and making snow angels. We just LOVE the snow! Takes me and DH back to the days when we lived and worked in the Alps!
Before the festive season I was beavering away in my craft room making gifts for people and also decorations for the house. This christmas, well last one, I really wanted to make my own crackers. Armed with my silhouette and the White Christmas papers from Rusty Pickle, I did just that!
I decorated them by layering a few flowers which I had punched out with my SU punch and then added some coiled wire to them before adhering them to the cracker. I then went a bit crazy with the Glimmer Mist (which I am loving at the moment!). Before tieing them shut I popped in a wee chocolate, paper hat and the joke of the year!!
Loads more to share but I must head .......

Happy New Year. Hope you had a great Hogmanay in with all that snow. What amazing crackers - they wouldn't look out of place in the most upmarket lifestyle magazine!
