Good Christmas Everyone?

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas? As usual I ate and drank too much but had a lovely time with family. It was fairly uneventful and quiet but that is how I like it :)

No crafty presents this year, my Fiancé is still living by the rule I need to finish / start the projects I already have first!

But, he did still spoil me :) A new charm for my Pandora, an Urban Decay eye palette, Lush smellies, a woolly hat along with all the gifts friends and family got me! I am very thankful and lucky to have such thoughtful people in my life.

I did however get one crafty parcel in the mail on Christmas Eve. Crafty Kitten have started up a monthly Mystery Box service which contains an exclusive dyed fabric along with some other bits each month. December was the first box which had the theme of Christmas.

I was so pleased! I loved the fabric and the threads and beads will certainly come in handy!

Next year the theme is birthstones, so January will be Garnet. I have already placed my order :P

Well tomorrow is New Years Eve, which also happens to be my Birthday. I don't have any big plans for the day, my birthday does tend to get overlooked and forgotten about so I think I may just relax and perhaps pick up some stitching and please myself!

I hope you all had a great Christmas and I hope you enjoy your New Year Celebrations whatever you may be doing :)
