The Joys of Christmas...

Hi folks....the Christmas shopper has returned slightly battered...bruised and absolutely cream crackered after the annual ritual that we all know as Christmas'd think we would learn from experience and at my age I have a wealth of the darned why do I always decide to leave it until the rest of the population decides to turn out en masse to hit the shops.  It won't come as a surprise then that I have no Timmie tag to share the time I limped home I was a wreck...only fit for a feet-up evening with a take-away and my Sunday night helping of Strictly but it's not all doom and gloom...the snow has boy Harry is through to the final and the parcel list has been well and truly decimated...only the food shopping to go...another nervous breakdown experience to look forward to next week...THE JOYS OF CHRISTMAS.
But before I can turn the cubbyhole into the parcel wrapping station...there is the small problem of tags lying everywhere so I've made a start on the canvasses to get them up on the wall out of the way.

And even more good news...the latest stamps from the Hero Arts 2012 launch have landed in the UK...if you're a Hero Arts addict like me and feel that you deserve a little festive can get them HERE and welcome to the "I HAVE NO WILLPOWER CLUB".
And my lovely buddies over at THE RIBBON GIRL have a fabulous give-away...
so pop on over and get your names in the hat...
Catch up with you all tomorrow
