I charged at today, have been here there and everywhere. And an hour ago finally hand delivered local Christmas cards, and slowly it’s dawning on me that I can now relax, I either will or won’t fit in everything I planned ,so, I can enjoy the final days of preparation for a great big fat family Christmas. The adrenalin is draining away and I feel chilled and oh so HAPPY.
I have finished the “teddy” for Master H

This was inspired by the materials I had to hand and a blog I read earlier this week- wish I had written down whose blog it was so I could thank them too.
One vanilla candle, in a glass pot and basket which had a hyacinth in last year, anchored into some dry oasis, surrounded by glass beads, a string of beads and some baubles,. Simple.
And this so effective vase of baubles- vase from a flower arrangement which I was sent for a Mother’s Day a few years ago and baubles originally used when I went on a flower arranging course for Christmas two years ago. Again inspired by a blogger whose name I didn’t record.
