It's been a while...

 I must say sorry - time has slipped away with me again and left me with no time to blog, I need to make an end of year resolution to do better.

Here are a couple of things I have been busy with - I collected some jam and pickle jars, coated them with mod podge, and rolled them in Epsom Salts (available from any chemist/drugstore). They dry to a very satisfying chunky snowy glitter, and make great Christmas table decorations.......I used the LED tea lights inside....





Now my really exciting news, and one of the reasons why I haven't been crafting much. We have been anxiously waiting the arrival of our daughter Alex's first child. The due date came and went. I had a call from seven year old Milo:
Auntie Alex's baby is coming out today....
Well, maybe not today Milo
She came here for lunch yesterday, I thought the baby might come out while we were having lunch, but it didn't come.....will you be the baby's Ma?
Yes
Will my Pops be the baby's Pops?
Yes
Long pause.........I expect I will just be the baby's Milo

So eventually after ten days of waiting, baby Molly arrived on Saturday morning, healthy and utterly gorgeous. Mummy, Daddy and baby are doing well!  We are going down to see her tomorrow, so expect a few doting photos to pop up here...

  18. Congratulations Enfys ... how wonderful that Alex's baby has arrived. What a blessing! I love Milo's comments, he is such a sweetie. I hope he knows that "just being the baby's Milo is no small thing. After all, he will be the baby's "Very Special Cousin Milo" ... and little Molly is going to adore him.

    BTW, your decorated jars are fabulous. I would not have thought to use Epsom salt rather than glitter, but it sure gives them a wonderful sparkle, doesn't it. These jars will be a lovely accent to any holiday table or room decor. Thanx for sharing them.
