Gosh it's a week since I last posted.  I have been busy making up gifts and cutting gift bags out.   I haven't photograph the gift baskets as the light hasn't been good and they were needed to be delivered.   Today is " oldie Friday ". Erika at  set this up so we can show some of our older work, why not join her it's good to get these old projects out again.  This basket is a bit like a couple of the ones I have been doing, just with different products.  

By the way Beth's school fair raised £1,140 not bad for a school of just over 100 pupils.  They still have school calenders sales to add to this total.   The fair it self was very busy and very hot, Beth wasn't feeling to well ( full of the cold) so we left after an hour.   So we just went home and cozyed up on the sofa watching a DVD.  

Now this was the scene at the school yesterday morning, snow on the Lomonds hills, it soon turned to a white out with a heavy snow fall, oh how I hate snow.  Yet for two and a half years Charlie and I lived in the very South of Germany running an adventure / ski place. Granted it was that very dry snow where as here it's wet and damp stuff.

Just looked out and oh boy, heavy frost and I am not looking forward to the drive to work, as there is BLACK ICE!!     Car needs defrosting, so I'd better get a move on.  

Thank you for coming to see what I have posted, feel free to leave a comment, I love reading them all and I do appreciate every one.  

Keep safe and warm.

    1. Thank you Steph, I do love making my baskets, granted by the time CHRISTMAS is over I willl be sick of seeing them. It's a nicer way of giving simple usefully goodies. My X cut gift bags have been a great hit this year, and thankfully they are so easy to make, plus adding a Sue striplet to them have been the selling point I think, my striplets will be needing replaced before long as I have cut out so many. You take extra care to keep warm, sorry about your cream carpet, ink is just the worst thing to get out. Hazel xx

  3. A lovely basket Hazel.
    Take care driving in the ice.

  7. Hi Hazel
    I use the leave in conditioner of this brand so its a luxury basket indeed.
