She's a winner!

We had a wonderful surprise today when we went to pick up a medal Millie had won at our local library. She'd entered a city wide reading competition open to all the local kids by which they earn a medal if they complete reading six books over the summer holidays. To our total delight (and my great pride!) it turns out she also won first prize for a poster she designed for the summer reading comp too - a box set of Harry Potter books. Cool! Hopefully she'll share the wealth with mummy - I fancy a read of those so I do! My budding little artist! I'm all for encouraging creativity and a bit of individuality. Well done Millie! A special mention too for SadieBelle who was a really big help when it came to magically making all the crisps and biscuits disappear from the refreshments table!LOL!
My girls ROCK!

Xmas pressies sorted....

Been busy with my sizzix making these cute banners for my nieces and nephew's xmas. I hope they like them. Had fun catching up with the crafting ladies at Crafty Allsorts club last night. I took a couple of projects along and as usual completed none of them. I have to say I just don't seem to have the knack of preplanning and packing what stash I might want/need to use - result being I don't usually have the right stuff with me to do anything much. For example :- I forgot to take my guillotine with me, my friend didn't have hers either. We both had our heat guns - but had no idea why we'd brought them LOL! Shambles - moi? Nevermind, all was not lost as I had at least packed a scalpel and ruler - phew! I'm a terrible one for flying by the seat of my pants but I like the spontaneity of that - hate to plan anything in case I decide I don't want to do it anymore. Heehee!
Have a crafty weekend folks!
