oooooh presents!!!

Well christmas certainly came to our house this year. I got some lovely presents this year and am so gratefull for my gifts.We also got a new small printer, a canon selphy.We were so pleased, thanks to my boyfriends mum and dad and sister and brother in law, as they got it as a joint present.
I got these today with the money that i got from my link childs family, i look after a child from the school i work at after school.

These are the presents i got from my boyfriend, plus, not photographed the wii fit plus game.I consider myself to be very lucky to have received these lovely gifts.

These were the gifts that were in my stocking, yes..... we do stockings for each other, i love having a stocking and i also love buying gifts for his stocking, finding little presents to go in it. Can you tell that i love the wizard of oz.I got a W O Z cup, tin,money box and purse. I also got a pig pin cushion that i remember seeing months ago and remarking that i liked it.I love my red polka dot pencil case, with pencils to match.

Now this beauty is my present to myself as i had some money left over from a gift, and i saw this and fell in love with it, she is so adorable, i also luuuuurve robots, especially cute ones that will look cute sitting pretty on my chair in my craft room.I am thinking of calling her robbie.
I also received lots of twilight goodies from my friends that i havent taken pics of yet, i got a metal lunch tin with flask.....mmmmm my lunch is gonna look so cool when i go back to school next week, a new moon calander, 2 robert patterson calandars, keyring, magnet and the twilight book with the apple on the cover... mine is the film cover, that was from my son as he knew i wanted it to match my others...sad yes i know.
I also got some clothes and the usual smellies...gotta love dove. Scarf and gloves set. Oh and a lovely glass mirrored picture frame with the word memories in bling.
Well that's it

I made this today

Well today i have had to wait in all day for a repair man to come and look/repair my washing machine, so i thought i would do the house work then set to making one of these. I had had this inspo file on my computer for ages from shimelle Laine from two peas. So i gave it a go, it was easier that i expected and so much fun to do.
Well it is 5.35pm and the repiar man has till 6pm to get here, he had better get his skates on, i can foresee a telephone call to whirlpool again.
Will post pics of my finished quilts soon too.

The Lion King

Well i have been an absent blogger, never mind lots of work related stuff going on and getting ready for a school christmas fayre. On to better things, such as the Lion King. We went to see this show in london on friday night and all i can say is oh my its amazing. It was my first time to see a live show in london, and i have been wanting to see this show for a very long time. I was not dissapointed, as it amazed me with its beautiful sets, dancers, singers, actors, puppets and puppeteers, truly spectacular. It was uplifting, sad, and happy throughout and truly had me in awe of it.Timon was so very good, funny and cheeky at the same time, very cleverly done.Timon is in the picture above, he is a meer kat ( i think ) . This is one show that i would love to see again, if i had the chance. My son loved the film when he was little and would watch the film over and over, and would be one of the ways to calm him down, so this has quite a lot of meaning to me, also its a great story and film too.

I did, at one point become a little emotional in the show, didn't quite shed a tear but could have done if i wasn't surrounded by about two thousand strangers!!! This show was the one show that my beloved mum would have loved to have seen, but sadly wasn't to be. That is another reason its special to me. I can also cross it off my list of 37 things to do while being 37. Seen a show in london.

The scenery was wonderfull, and throughout i kept thinking to myself, " how did they make that ?" or " you could make that with so and so ". I love to make things, arty, scrpbooking, cards, etc.

Well onto other things, i have started my december daily but havent taken any pics yet, will do tomorrow, its a little slow going what with work, but have now got to catch up till today.
