Sweet Greetings

Just a quick hello and a few sweet ramblings for the holidays.

Do you like the Gingerbread houses, one is paper and the other is tasty :) frosting yummy

The small children in our house have been given a kit to build, I think its Tesco's but it will keep for Christmas Eve and there are going to be needing something to calm them down by then.

All my family are now safe at home, as I hope yours are too, the older girls have returned from uni/college and a full house is a manic house. My own Christmas fairy visited yesterday and set and decorated my table ready for dinner on Friday, along with a yummy box of Tablet ( sweet Scottish toffee), which I have had to hide from the children.

The snow is melting we had two days of the white stuff. A hello to Dorothy in Canada, where it is colder than the north pole in places, wrap up warm my Canadian friends and enjoy it while it lasts.

For our Dutch friends we have an extra sweet surprise for you in the New Year, not long now and we will show off our new range and some of you already guessed, yes its digi.

We are keen to see how many digi users there are out there and have no intention of stopping rubber, its just over and above what we already do, moving with the times.
All digi designs will be new and available instantly, I think that is the pull of digi, we have so many international customers who have to wait sometimes weeks for a packet that we are hoping they like an instant sugar fix. More news on that later.

It's Christmas week, are you ready? It comes every year but ever year I no where near ready. I am sure that whatever has been done is more than enough, is there such a thing as the perfect Christmas?


Snowy times

It snowed here today, things are getting colder and I am happy to see the snow fall. My kids love to play and I love them to go out and play!

Some new snowy themed stamps coming in the New Year, keep those snowflake punches handy not only for Christmas cards but for warm winter wishes too.

If I get any peeks I will show you later but for now its just a quiet month all round in the House of Sugar, time to catch up with boring jobs like paperwork and sweeping the floors.

I still have most of my shopping to do, food is almost done but gifts are a little harder to find. We had our staff night out last week and my first traditional turkey dinner of the season.

Still looking for the perfect gingerbread house, any ideas?

BIG ten

On the 10th day of Christmas
Sugar Nellie gave to me...............

TEN super sweet stamps for under my tree.

Not just ONE rubber stamp but TEN!
No one gives away candy like we do, the Scots are generous that way :)

You will have noticed that I have not been posting work by the DT, well that is because we are saving it for the gallery in the new blog, Zoe is working hard putting it all together for the launch in the New Year. Our DT are still making amazing things with sweet stamps and you can visit them all via the links to their own blogs on the right. A big thank you to our DT for their hard work and emails.

The sun is shining here in Scotland today, a slight frost up in the hills but we are heading to Glasgow this weekend. Debbie is studding law at Strathclyde and we are staying with her and the younger two children want to do a bit of practice ski ing at the indoor ski slope at Breahead. Oh what fun, might manage a little trip to Craftology ;)

There will be a few Christmas trees put up around the world this weekend, is your up yet?
