Advent Day Goodies and a Special Birthday

Well all I can say, is I've obviously been on the good list as my Advent presents so far have been gorgeous ... Let me share with you, days 1 to 8

Each year we write out the papers or collections we like but this is usually done in September, so by the time December comes, its such a lovely surprise.  We both also asked for more paper this year than embellishments or anything too lumpy.  

I think we both need to just get on with our back load of scrapping projects, rather than faff, as that's what we're both so good at doing.  I can't wait to play with these gorgeous papers. 

On another note ... a certain two were one yesterday.  Goodness, this year has been a complete roller coaster for me. I've loved them to bits, and I can't imagine being without them, but they've turned my world upside down and inside out.  Adolescence has hit at the moment, so its a very trying time. Especially as they're terriers at that.  But we'll get there.  So here are a couple of photos. 

They're inseparable .... always have been. Its a joy to see.  Saying that, I can hear tug of war going on in the background, so I better go and check its with a toy, and not something they've grabbed off the workbench.  Yesterday it was my tea towel! 

I apologies for the blogs I've not been commenting on, I'm so behind on my blog reading, but I will catch up ... promise.
