I am so late today! I took some extra painkillers yesterday so my head was floating around in it's own little world & then I had one of those funny nights where I was watching a film way past midnight sat on the sofa cuddling Daisy Mae (cat) & then woke up at 3.20am, freezing cold & not quite with it. I remember bizarrely thinking "I'll do some colouring" so grabbed my copics, stamped an image, made a cuppa & sat there trying to colour to keep myself awake before eventually realising it was very dark so it wasn't the afternoon it was the middle of the night, so what the hell was I doing trying to stay awake anyway lol.
Today I am rejoining my DT's which I took a break from while I was poorly, I will admit I have enjoyed a little break & only keeping one DT going although I have been busy organising some things behind the scenes, it's not until you take a step back that you realise how time consuming being on DT's is, but I have missed my teamies so it's back to the grindstone for me lol.

We are going to be welcoming a new baby girl into our family in the Summer, little Ollie is going to be a big brother so his mummy & daddy are going to have their work cut out with two little ones under the age of 2, brave, or mad lol.
I wanted to give the little lady a gift that nobody else would so wanted something handmade & thought of my lovely and super talented friend Tabs & her crochet goodies. Tabs has made the cutest, & just perfect little pair of Mary Jane's that I instantly fell in love with. Unfortunately my piccy doesn't do them justice they are even more adorable & pretty IRL :)
Naturally I had to have some gorgeous crochet flowers too (thanks Tab for making them in the colours I wanted x) & Jodie wanted a lip gloss holder which I couldn't photograph as she was out when I took the piccy and the mean girl wouldn't leave it with me in case I didn't give it back lol.
Go take a peek at the gorgeous goodies in Tabs shop HERE
That's me done peeps, I'm going to be checking through the candy entries & delete any double entries and will announce the winner in my next post and just may have a little more sweet stuff to share :)
Thanks for stopping by
