Wishful creating and prizes

Well, after the high of blogtoberfest, I kind of fell in a blogging slump there didn't I.

This has been a bit of a sh*t week for me, but today after a morning of terribly boring appointments, I came home to 2 wonderful packages from 2 wonderful bloggers. That's right, during blogtoberfest I happened to win not 1 but 2 giveaways. And highly coveted ones at that!


First up was these gorgeous cupcake papers from Cathie at m.e. She also chucked in a little bag of sprinkles with all those beautiful papers. I don't think I'll ever need to buy any cupcake papers again!



Then I also won the giveaway at Lino Forest. I got to choose a brooch or pendant from Liz, and you know I went Owl brooch! I have wanted one of these for ages! I did try to take a photo with me wearing it, but it's too difficult, trust me, it rocks.

Thanks so much ladies, you really made my week!


I had a bit of a score at the local patchwork shop too yesterday. I have been wanting the Christmas Honey Buns for awhile too, and at 25% off, I was putty in Tereasa's hands! That's the plan for tomorrow, make up some of the very cute little Christmas stockings using the honeybuns. They are going to be so sweet! (see what I did there!!)

For spaces that are going to be way more creative than mine today, head over to Kirsty's.
