Well, here goes, my first post!

Thank you for all my lovely comments and albeit it rather late thank you so much for all the lovely crafty presents I received from the bloggy meet in London. It was very kind of you all to include me as well.

You will be pleased to hear that I have been crafty this weekend while looking after my friends children while parents went Christmas shopping. The girls (aged 13 & 12) made these, courtesy of "fan my flame".

I think it was quite an achievement as they made them all on their own as I was busy making blueberry muffins.

I say I was busy making these but in fact it was made by my friends nearly 10 year old son. They looked absolutely fab and tasted delicious.

Well, I say I have been crafty but as you can see the children have - does that count?

Well, she needed a helping hand

Seeing as my BIG sister Ally is"far too busy" to create a blog but is definitely an honorary blogger and has taken part in 3 bloggy meet-ups, I thought I'd do it for her - and I'm sure I have chosen the right title for it!

And she is a closet crafter too...............................

here are some of the decorations she made yesterday following Domesticali's tutorial

this one is from wrapping paper

and this is her clever variation made using the fabric wrapping from Michaela's fabulous fudge

she soaked it in a PVA solution first to stiffen it and it worked really well.

I'm sure she will have a lot more to say so please leave my BIG sister a comment to welcome her to blogland!!!
