A fantastic finish to my crafty year!

>> Tuesday, 29 December 2009

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed spending time with family & friends, eating too much and playing silly games. We had a lovely time and Thomas thoroughly enjoyed himself. He received so many presents and now has a wonderful selection of Lego and a HUGE train set.

In my last post I mentioned some exciting news that I was dying to share with you. About 3 weeks ago I received a phone call from the Editor of Papercraft Essentials to tell me that I was the winner of their 'Papercrafter of the Year'. I was so thrilled and excited I probably sounded a bit nuts on the phone! Not only did I win a huge stash of crafting goodies but I get to join the magazine's design team - something I am massively excited about.

It took a while for the news to sink in but I think I finally believed it when I bought my copy on Christmas Eve! 2010 is going to be a very exciting crafty year!!
