bookworld voucher giveaway

When I was asked by Bookworld to do a post for them
I hesitated for less than a millisecond.
I was given a voucher to spend so I now had a legitimate
excuse to do book shopping  research.
Would I buy a craft book or fiction?
The crime section narrowed it down for me but I yet to decide
I think this one Takedown Twenty may just be the one.
There are soooo many great discounted books!
Would you like a $20 voucher to spend there?
If you are Australian and looking for a fantastic Christmas gift
just leave a comment here.
Too easy.
Thanks Bookworld it was a pleasure collaborating with you,
 let's do it again soon. 
This giveaway is now closed , thanks for your interest.

just a quickie

Things have been a little frantic around here lately
so I thought I'd pop in and say hi and show you
a very quick and easy decoration that you can do for Christmas.
Simply wrap some coloured thread around jars
 and drop in a tealight.
I used baby food jars and battery operated tealights
because I don't like/won't use candles of any sort.
I have found a stash of baby food jars that I will be using
for Christmas crafts so I will show you more in a
couple of days , I hope you can come back then.

moving on

I'm always a little sad at the end of Winter to pack
my crochet blankets away.
All during the cold weather
they have been snuggled in and cuddled in.
They have been cried on and laughed in.
They have been fought in and fought over.

For now they are clean and being packed away.
Next Winter will be very different in my home
with my kids growing up and moving on.

So I guess I will be making blankets for their homes...

and cuddling the pets that are left behind.
