New Year's Resolution & Christmas Catch Up

Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year, and that Santa brought you lots of crafty goodies.  I received a few sewing books that I've had my eye on for a while, and my friend Kylie let me choose a Stampin' Up! set of my choice - so I picked Aviary, I can't wait to get started playing with it.  With my last order, I also received the Charming and the Create a Cupcake stamp sets from the new Spring Mini Catalogue (blog post to follow) for free, as well as a set of the Brights Brads, as a reward for getting two workshops booked during the recent Worldwide Week of Workshops Bookathon.  13,887 workshops were booked across the world that day! How good is that! It's not too late to book a workshop, so if you are interested, please contact me.  Or if you are interested in becoming a demonstrator, to receive great benefits like has just been offered, let me know.

I've not been very good at keeping myblog updated recently! Christmas took over, and I was so busy making all my cards and a few gifts, many at the last minute, that I forgot to take pictures of all my creations! I also didn't want to spoil any surprises by posting pictures on here before I sent cards.  I managed to sell quite a few cards at work this year, which was very exciting, two colleagues saw samples I had brought in and asked for 6 each.  Another friend wanted a 21st birthday card, and ended up buying 3 others too.  It got me motivated to try to do more this year, and have confidence that people do like and want to buy my creations.  My New Year's Resolution is most definitely to do more blog posts, and generally, do more crafting! Or at least be more organised with it! I've noticed a lot of crafty plans being made through Twitter recently, and I'm looking forward to making a few more friends through the various groups that are popping up around Leeds.

The first step to this organisation, will be getting my craft room in some sort of order! Even though I have a room where I can keep everything, I still end up bringing it all downstairs to the lounge and spreading out there in front of the TV.  After I had finished my cards, I then took it all back upstairs, and just put it on the floor, so I can barely get in and around the room now. It all needs taking out, sorting through, and putting back in so I know where everything is.  I also need a clear out, and I need to be brutal! So keep an eye out, there may be some sales and bargains available soon.

On a down note, my New Year didn't start off too well, by dropping my iPhone! So just incase any of you are trying to place orders or get hold of me or through Facebook, Twitter, email or good old phone calls, please be patient! It still works but is pretty difficult to see, as you can see from the picture below.  The "A" key on my laptop is playing up too, so please excuse any funny spellings! Why do these things all happen at once eh!
