On the run up to Christmas

I was very busy at work & so made very few things. I did get some much needed birthday cards done & did start a Christmas 2008 minibook. But, everyone at work is ill with one bug or another & it has been a battle trying to avoid them all. So I took a much needed break from my computer & the outside world. It was actually lovely to be cut off from everything for a few days & just enjoy the festive period of watching telly & not bothering to get dressed! I then went to Newcastle to spend a few days with my sister & brother -in-law & it was back home & straight back to work for a day. Had two days off & then back to work again on 2nd January. I feel well rested & ready to start creating again for the DT on mojoholder as we will go live again on Friday :0)
Deb's Birthday card for 18th December '08.
Martin's birthday card (BIL) for 1st January 2009
I will be back Friday. Just got to get through this week as we have huge changes at work & its stressful!!!

Great to see you back , Paula !
everything at your own pace , own time ! ;-) No worries !

Great masculine birthday for your BIL !

You said it about cutting back on scrappy expenses this year ! - frankly the Studio Calico Kit is a very good investment & with that alone it will keep your creations looking fresh !

Hope you're doing well.

Those cards are really gorgeous! =)

We have all been poorly so you have done well to avoid it girlie!
We all need a break from time to time, I too dont feel like blogging or doing much at all as Emily is teething and the sleepness nights and very hard days are taking the toll now. I have been up since 5am this morning and only had a few hours sleep, so computer time is the last thing on my mind.
Loving the gorgeous cards, you have been creative. I have actually scrapped so I will have some goodies to share soon.
Take care and keep wrapped up, its so cold this week.
