Nearly New Year

Hi All

Hope you all had a good Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year, we are having a quiet one as usual, don't really celebrate now, just have a glass of wine really.  Not sure what Sarah is doing she may be going to London to be with friends or may contact a couple here in Plymouth and go and stay with them.

We had a lovely day on boxing day we went over to Nicole and Dean's where she put on a lovely spread and met Dean's family and got an order for a personalised candle whilst there which was good.
Had lots of lovely presents for Christmas, earrings, kindle fire, new sewing box which has put me in the mood to do a little sewing project, also a voucher for Hobbycraft already spent lol, slippers, bailey's fudge, etc etc, spoilt rotten.

I have not made a card but wanted to show you a little decoupatch cat I have made really enjoyed doing this:

and here is Toby all tired out after his Christmas Lunch lol 

Not quite sure what he was up to here 

I have started making some soap again I have run out and as it takes 6 weeks to cure thought I had better get a move on and get some made the concoction I have brewed this time is Avocado, Fennel and Marjoram which smells gorgeous.  I will be making some Lemon and Orange tomorrow and then on Wednesday will make some Grapefruit, then Lavender, then Bergamot and Patchouli, will also make some Rose Geranium and Honey and Oats hope I have enough of the oils I use.  i.e. Coconut, Palm and Olive Oil otherwise a trip to the Soap Kitchen will be called for.

I have also decided to try and set up a web page to sell my wares not sure yet if I will be able to afford this every month but shall wait and see hopefully the thing should pay for itself.  I am about a quarter of the way through setting it up but now need some help which I will sort out tomorrow hopefully.  

Anyway am off to bed just now its around 12.30 am, and I am shattered. 

Love to all

Alison xx
