SOS- warm and cozy

Staying warm and cozy with a cup of hot coffee.
There is a storm coming in and I have already been called out to the farm yard
to help get a cow and calf back inside after escaping while the fold door was open.

My head is thumping and I feel that the activities of the last week are catching up on me.
I have two sickly kiddies asleep on the sofa, best not disturb them,
they are warm and cosy with the fire and heating on.
This time next week we will all be back to normal, well as normal as it can be.
I hope that you are all safe , warm and well fed.

It has been very wet here in Scotland, its waders you need not wellies.
No frost or snow to talk about but just very wet underfoot.

Lambing has started early this year, I am sure that we have never seen lambs arrive in December. The children are excited as lambing is a big deal, got to check the sheep on a regular basis to make sure no one needs help, bring inside anything that is struggling out there and watch out for potential pet lambs. We are so fortunate with the weather because many time's the little lambs have dropped into this world during a cold blizzard of snow, does not help the survival rate at all.

Both stores are closed until next Thursday, plan are going on for things happening this spring. Demonstrations and classes with a wider variety of crafts.

I have been watching Kristie's Vintage Home and handmade Christmas, some days its on back to back on the TV so I think I have seen them all now. I am loving the vintage look, so pretty and not necessarily new. Keep your eyes open, because if I love it, I will want to share with you too. DO we have any space in our stores for a little vintage makeover?

I am still picking up ideas on Pinterest, mostly non card making but still crafting, a little felting and some wire works too, I am trying to say away from the baking as it looks like my blood sugars are not good, either is my iron and goodness knows what else they will find when they start poking about. I expect they will tell me I am over weight on top of everything else!

Watch out this week for some  ABORABLE sneeky peaks from the Design Team, we have new digital stamps coming out next weekend.

These come from the same artist as the ADORABLE's and are designed to make colouring in a breeze.
Don't worry if you have trouble shading, its all done for you and these vintage beauties are a must for any lover of the sweet stuff.

Until then, stay warm and safe.

PS thanks to Cassie @ tinywhitedaisies for all her beautiful collection of photos.

I hope your kiddies are getting better and your not coming down with it as well, the lamb is so cute. I love the vintage look myself but yet to learn, I'm sure whatever you do will be worth sharing. I hope you and your family have a great New Year...hugs xx
