It arrived all beautifully wrapped, oh how I love Parcels in the Post, especially beautifully wrapped parcels!
Whilst I popped this in my virtual basket I also popped these in too....you can NEVER have too many buttons!
I've put it on my craft cupboard for now, I don't think it will be just for Christmas, I think it might just be an all year round Deer!
I'm always hanging things on handles, much to Mr Beas annoyance, don't tell him, but I do it all the more now that I know this fact, well a girls got to have a little fun somewhere!
Anyway, it's NOT THAT HARD opening a cupboard with something hanging from the handle is it, you just have to be A LITTLE MORE CAREFUL! Actually, it is perhaps a little big for there, but I'm enjoying looking at it!
Thank you Maartje for your creativity, you seem to have a endless supply of ideas running around in your head!
One of the things I want to do in 2013, is support this Crafty Community! I've decided that some of my earnings from my Etsy shop will go towards supporting other Crafty Souls enterprises, bit like a Crafty Tithe! I've already got some things in mind, Foxes in Boxes, Painted Buttons, more Fabric, and when I've made a purchase I shall share it on my Blog, promote their wares!
My (Almost) A Cushion, is now (Almost) A Blanket! I decided just to carry on....one thing I learnt this morning was to make sure you had the blanket the right side up before you start a new row, unfortunately I didn't discover this fact until almost the end! Never mind, it's easy to unravel and I need the practice!
Now for Crafty Currency Swap News....I've extended the joining date until next week, if like me you are in the mood for a good old sort out, you might just come across something you could swap!
People have offered up some lovely things-
Kirsty's Vintage Home
Liberty Book of Home Sewing
A large selection of jewellery beads, if you fancy a go at making some jewellery!
Raggy Doll, you choose which one!
Crochet fingerless gloves with flowers on (don't worry not me!)
Some lovely notecards, by a brilliant photographer!
Zips, Handmade notebooks, Frilly Scarf....lots of things! Please have a look but please could you leave your swap ideas on that post as it will help when I match up partners!
Patricia, from Pickworth, please send me your details, I haven't got them! You can email me, my address is on my profile page, thanks.
Talking of swaps Lisa is having one to celebrate 4 years of Blogging! It's a much easier, straightforward one! She's been around the Bloggy Block a few times, knows how to keep these things simple!
There's a button on her blog I'm supposed to use to promote it, however I'm not sure what to do with it! I know what to do with actual buttons, that's easy. You collect as many a possible, put them on display, occasionally tip them out to have a closer look, and if they're lucky they get popped onto something gorgeous! Easy! Technical Buttons, different story!
Thanks for all you New Year Wishes, I feel really good about this year! Juliab talked about a carousel ride, yes I'm definitely up for that, I think I might leave the big scary rides alone from now on! Something nice, gentle and pretty to look at, yep that's my option for 2013!
Bye for now!

p.s. Etsy Shop now reopened! Fabric nearly on, but might be next week when the girls are back at school!
