My New Crafty Space....Tidy at last !!!!

Spoiling myself !!! Again

At last my new crafty space is finished , well I don't think I can ever say finished as I will be adding to it for the rest of my life as I am a craft addict !! as I am sure those of you who know me will have already realized !! he he. And the rest of you will gather from my photos.

I hope everyone had a good Christmas, we all had lots of fun and far to much too eat , my 2 boys got loads of presents and we all felt spoilt , I think it was one of the best Christmas days I have had in a long time.
I have 3 days without my 2 boys as they have gone to stay with my sister in law in London so is crafting all the way !! In peace which will be nice although I will miss the boys it is quite around the house without them, but I know they are having fun with their cousins.
Tomorrow I plan to finish a 5.5" x 5.5" chipboard scrapbook that I have started today it for Valentines .
I got lots of nice things for Christmas and my darling husband gave me some cash to treat myself I was going to buy some Coco Channel but I looked at The Glitter Pot craft sale and blew the lot on half price craft goodies I got lots of beautiful 12x12 papers , some Tilda stamps and several packs of Pebbles Inc ribbons , oh yes and some doodle bugs sugar glitter which wasn't in the sale but I just had to have it as it was just sooooooooooo gorgeous !!! Lol, I cant wait for it to arrive it will be like Christmas all over again !! He he
Well better go and grab some beauty sleep , Sweet dreams ....... Make sure they are Die cut Dreams !! Lol
Happy new Year to you all.

Merry Christmas Everyone

Merry Christmas everyone, I haven't posted on my blog for some time now as I have been so busy sorting out my new crafty space and unboxing at my craft stash. but I am back and to celebrate Christmas I want to share with you a really yummy easy Christmas recipe;

Christmas Easy No Cook Recipe
Susie's Quick no cook festive Yule log
1 pack of chocolate chip cookies
Half a pint of sour cream
1 cup of sherry
Half a pint of double cream
Some grated chocolate to decorate
What to do
Whip the double cream and pop it in the fridge until you need it
Grate the chocolate and set aside to decorate at the end
Open the pack of cookies
Pour the sherry into a shallow dish
And you will need a spreading / palette knife for the sour cream
You will also need a long plate to serve
Now as quick as you can dip the cookies one at a time into the sherry
And spread it with some sour cream and then on to the next one
Sandwich them together to form a log shape
When all the cookies are used , get the cream from the fridge and cover the whole log ,
sprinkle with the grated chocolate,
Refrigerate for one hour and serve
Yummy !!!!!!!!!! Enjoy ,
Merry Christmas
Love Susie xx
