Starting Over

Happy New Year everyone...
I hope you had a lovely Christmas, and Santa was kind to you with lots of  
new crafting goodies to add to your stash. Due to a serious family crisis, we
had a very quiet Christmas and New Year. My birthday fell between those days
(29th), so John and I went to a seaside town 2 hours away, where we had a lovely
light lunch, a long seaside walk, and a fabulous dinner. Between lunch and dinner we 
had 2 shopping expeditions...John bought me a new handbag, then went for a drive 
while I spent 1 1/2 hours in a scrapbooking/craft store, where lots of 
goodies 'fell' into the shopping basket.

I suppose you couldn't help but notice, I have updated and 'prettified' my blog. 
Of course I had an awful lot of help from my wonderful, and very clever John.

That's enough of my rambling on...let's move on to more important things!
After a break over the festive season, Crafty Little Fairies is back with a new
