Nothing for days, and then way too much for one post!

All of a sudden I have lots of things to post about. There was the jumble sale on Saturday, the boot fair on Sunday, and my package from Alexandra today, wooohoooooooooo!!! And, I have also finished my tree topper from the Romantic White Christmas workshop!

Well, lets see now. I haven't photographed the weekend finds yet, so I don't need to worry about that right now, that will be ok for later in the week. And my beautiful, gorgeous, amazingly generous swap gifts from Alexandra, well, they deserve a whole post to themselves. Actually, I need TWO posts for those, and you are so going to love the pics. Well, not the pics so much as the amazing gifts shown in the pics. The pics are pretty poor, the weather is so appalling at the mo, there is not much light and I was way too excited to arrange those lovely gifts properly.

So, I'll show you my latest project from the Romantic White Christmas workshop today, and you will have to wait for Alexandra's parcel until tomorrow. It will be so worth it though.

I loved the idea of the tree topper, I was really excited about using lots of glitter on the gorgeous snowflake, folding lots of music paper etc, so here it is, without further ado -

I used proper sheet music so that it would look nice from the back as well, and I used that fabulous silver ink pen on the darling little cherub. I am pleased with the way it turned out, and I am almost tempted now to put the drawing room Christmas tree up.

Tomorrow is Alexandra Day, lol, so stay tuned!

Oh you are a tease! I do love what you have made though and yes you should put that tree up, it's not too early. We will have ours up in the weekend after the Santa parade. Nothing like a bit of tinsel and glitter to get one excited aye? Now roll on tomorrow so we can see what you received!!
