Very proud to announce.....

I really can't stop grinning! Not been around for a while as my Internet has been playing up and have so much to tell but would first of all like to apologise for not visiting you all for a while. Big thanks to Mrs T for being my secretary...she was terrible though! LOL!

Many thanks to everyone for the lovely Birthday wishes you sent Belle...she had a fantastic party but for some strange reason all the other mums went white when I dumped a load of finger paints in front of the kids and told them to get as messy as they liked...!

Anyway...some of you already know but I can now proudly announce that I am part of the Inspirational Team and I can't stop grinning! Having been featured on there twice it was a dream come true when Julie added me to her list and I feel very honoured especially when you see who else is on the team! I'm really looking forward to getting to know all the girls and to do even more blog hopping!

And.....the oh so talented Debbie has asked me to become one of her DT for her fantastic new challenge blog...The Crafty Pad...and as I love her images there was no way I was going to say no! Many thanks Debbie for asking me.

And finally...yes there's more...something I've made recently is going to be featured in an e-zine...but will reveal more when it happens!

So that's all for now. I'm going to be spending the next couple of days going round all the blogs and seeing what you've been up to. Out with the girls tomorrow night for our Christmas meal so may be slightly hungover on Sunday!

I really hope you are all well and many, many thanks for the beautiful Christmas cards that have been landing on my door mat.

Zuzu's Blog said... yes I am adding a PS cos I didn't finish reading your post properly before commenting..
I just read your finger paints comment..

WELL DONE YOU.. as a child therapist in training I have to applaud that attitude .. its so so good for them and therapeutic as well as expressive and fun! I wish more people would risk the mess occasionally with their kids! It made me smile with delight reading that you did that
