Houses and more

Good morning my dear blog friends .... how are we? 
I am off to Pilates shortly but just wanted to pop in with a few things ... I am still going with the Christmas cards and need to make some bookmarks ... I bought some of my friends books for Christmas and I think a handmade bookmark would be nice to put with them ... So that is my plan this afternoon ... (she says) ... 
I survived my class at the primary school last week ... very different from my Thursday group ...  much more rowdy and frantic ... but I think the children enjoyed making their notebooks and bookmarks ... after which I opened my stash of embellies and cards and let them just dive in and get creative ... I was tired before I arrived and I just about staggered out ... 
I know you've seen these before (probably) but this is what we made ...



I thought maybe going to a school it was not such a good idea to show them cut up book pages ... but no one seemed to notice ... they were more taken with the ladybird and the calendar insert ...


So all my classes (apart from Pilates) have finished till New Year ... I have done virtually all my gift shopping and mailed lots of stuff already ... this is a sort of production line of "house" cards ... 


I don't like to forget people who have been great throughout the year ... the postman ... who trudges through the ice and snow ... my hairdresser who always accommodates me 'cos I never remember to make appointments ... and on and on the list goes ...


plus some sweet neighbours ... we don't always see much of each other but we know we can call on one another when needs be ...
Now my exercise class beckons whilst my body screams Nooooo!! Gotta make the effort ...

Till soon

Hola Ros ! Oh those house cards are so cute :D really nice. You made me laugh with the line about teaching kids to tear pages from a book ;). Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my blog. It's really nice to have someone who understands how one feels at a point in time. Muchas gracias. Big hug, Laura
