...this 9th of November 2012 ?

Yes Friday has come around again and this is where we take a moment to step back and look at the things that have made us smile or brightened our worlds in the last week...then we toddle over to Virginia's blog to share these 'rocking' moments.

So what has been going on since last Friday...

Well, the weather has been pretty awful so that hasn't been rocking my world especially as the heavy downpours didn't do anything to halt the very LOUD bangs and whistles of fireworks going off late into the evening on most times the explosions were very like the news footage of shells going off in a war zone. I love a beautiful fireworks display but all that seemed to be happening around here was a lot of BANG and very little fizz...

The UKScrappers 10th Anniversary Cyber-Crop came to an end - that was sad but the classes/challenges that were produced for this event were fabulous. I have printed them off and will be making some of the projects at a later date. It was fun being part of a team and the galleries of super creations have been amazing.

Starbucks has the red cups back...
...this means the Christmas flavours are now available and I've had my first Gingerbread latte of the season - yummy, scrummy, delish.

Simply Christmas over at the Shabby Art Boutique has started with some fabulous posts - if you haven't visited you really must hop over there and take a look. So many lovely ideas for making Christmas more home and family centred.

Kerryanne holds a link party every Friday - Shabbilicious Friday - where folk share the super shabby chic things that they have made or found. I shared my rusty wreath last week and I have been lucky enough to be 'featured' on this weeks post - see the pretty button that I have been able to add to my sidebar **big grin**

This week I will be entering these...
...scandinavian style Christmas decorations. Not so much shabby chic but certainly with a family homespun feel to them. Red/White/Kraft colour combos are very much the thing at the moment and I used some scraps of fabric (out of my work basket) to make these two hearts. A small amount of wadding to give them a squishy feel and some wooden buttons that I bought a while ago in Sugar & Spice just to finish them off. I want to get some hessian or jute to make some 'kraft' coloured ones too.

I might even go mad and make some bunting like in one of the Simply Christmas posts (just need to find a few extra hours to tag onto my days LOL).

Why don't you hop over to Virginia's and Kerryanne's blogs to take a look at what is being shared...better still - why not join in..........................

Those hearts are gorgeous. Can't wait to see the bunting so you must find the time! I love the blog and the papers you gave a shout out to last week and I have been mentioning them on my blog too. And to all the croppers. Thanks for your lovely comments. Jenx

the hearts are fabulous - Starbucks Christmas cups are back, you aren't the only person who gets giddy about this - my sister and another friend find it exciting! Never quite 'got' Starbucks - must try again LOL!

the cyber crop was fabulous I have so many classes I've not done so will also be printing, downloading and having fun!

Hope you have a fabulous week ahead!
