Almost over…. but not quite….

How are you all after the Christmas feasting and festivities? Did Santa bring you all you hoped for? Are you still buzzing or ready to wrap this year up and move on to a fresh New Year and whatever surprises that may hold?

We had a fantastic Christmas despite my being ill and taking to my bed for part of it, lol. Honestly, considering we are in the throws of a deep recession here Santa sure didn’t disappoint.

I got my gorgeous Cuisineart Soup Maker which I am yet to try out but can’t wait. I love good soup.


My next piece of culinary machinery has to be the Tefal Jam Maker. I’m saving hard for that. Can you think of anything nicer then homemade jam on fresh baked bread, mmmm.


Jay got a huge surprise in his stocking. He nearly choked bless him, hehe.



Oh yes, a fantastic iPad. He just loves it and hasn’t stopped playing with it since.

Elly got her own little laptop too so now I don’t have to share my pc with anyone. Yup, there was definitely method in Santa's madness this year and I for one am not complaining hehe. I sure hope you all had as much fun.

This weeks Freebie

Well, this should have gone up sooner but I was ill so its a little late but better late then never right. My ‘Snow in Love’ kit was released on Christmas Day and this super little add on pack makes a fab addition to the kit. I hope you enjoy

Christmas Eve....

is my absolute favourite day of the year. I know, you'd think it would be Christmas day, right? But not for me. I love the excited anticipation of what's to come. I love that if you haven't got it by now, you ain't gonna get it so stop worrying and enjoy the holidays. Its my day for relaxing and enjoying the moment and I like it to start early, I mean real early. It's not unusual for me to be found at our all night supermarket at 4am getting some last minute treats. Not that I need them, I just love the sense that I'm there because I want to be and not because I have to be lol. Probably, one of my most favourite activities on Christmas Eve is taking a little time out from the family and going off into town (literally a 5 minute walk), finding myself a nice little table outside at one of the many coffee shops we have and listening to the Christmas band whilst people watching. Its such a stress buster I highly recommend it. Of course, I'm blessed with the fact that we have a lovely town in which to do all this.

But feeling so fortunate at having this day to enjoy when I know most people are still going crazy stressing out that they've forgotten something I wondered what I would do if I discovered I'd forgotten to get someone's gift. Naturally, I'd turn to my favourite cook, Nigella Lawson and see what goodies she might suggest would make super gifts from the heart and lo and behold, look what I found on you tube....
so, if you find yourself on Christmas Eve without a gift, look no further then your own kitchen and whip up a real gift from the heart.

Or....... you could always whip up a little scrapable gift hehe. Today I have some sweet goodies for you to complete the Merry Days collection (available in all my stores now). You can't go wrong with these gorgeous little ready to use cluster frames. Grab a paper from your stash, choose your fav photo and pop it behind the frame, re-size it if required and merge the whole thing, hey presto, one layout ready for printing and what a super gift idea.

Enjoy and be sure to come back tomorrow for and brand new kit release and of course, something rather yummy to go with it.

Lets finish this wonderful day with a little treat for the youngsters and young at heart in readiness for tonight's special visiter

Hugs and a Merry Christmas to you all

p.s. don't forget to check out Sophisti-Scraps 17 Day event today for something special. You'll find the link in the side bar.

Temporary Blog and goodies....

Hey everyone,
Thanks so much for popping over. Unfortunately I have no idea at the moment what exactly is wrong with my WP blog and I just don't have the time to try and figure it all out during the Christmas Holidays so rather then have you all think I've dropped off the face of the planet I thought I'd set up this little temporary blog to keep things rolling.... I'll let you know as soon as things are back to normal over at BooLand 1 but for now, make yourself as comfortable as you can here and enjoy what we have for you.

Well, unexpectedly that huge snow dump we had a few days ago has decided to hang around and of course now its all turned to sludge and ice making it impossible to walk or drive through so we are stuck indoors for the moment. It sure was pretty though.....

 So there I am, unable to do any last minute things and I thought, 'hmmmm, what shall I do with myself? Ahhhh I know, I'll do some gift wrapping.'.... I found this neat little video all about gift wrapping, check it out...
and here are some pics of my gifts all wrapped for Jay. Don't you just love that boot stocking hehe...

Now thats all done and dusted its time to share todays goody with you all. This was meant to go into the Newsletter this week but I missed the post so I thought I'd share it here with you all. Hope you like....

Ok, thats all for today. Be sure to pop back soon and don't forget to bookmark this blog for all BooLand News until I get the WP Blog sorted. Thanks so much everyone
