Hey there folks, How goes it today? Yesterday was a full on cleaning day for Jay and I in preparation of our Christmas Eve fun and frolics. More on that in another post but for now, I’m totally shattered and in need of a holiday lol.

I must admit, RoboVac, as we call him, is brilliant. I love watching him trundle back to his docking station and plugging himself in for a quick re-charge before gathering his strength to go again. Well, it’s a big floor…..

Once again I have some festive tips and tricks for you and a little reminder of new products and almost expired sales so watch out for that info. I’d hate for you to miss out on those awesome deals. I’m so glad you enjoyed my Solstice post yesterday. Hope you find todays post as interesting or at least, fun :)

All being well, we should be visiting Manchester Cathedral later today for our annual Nine Carols Service. It’s really beautiful and especially more so in the lovely old Cathedral However, Elly is poorly with flu like symptoms so we may have to cancel. It’s more important for her to get better I think.

Out here in Seattle, we got 8 hours, 25 minutes and 24 seconds of daylight today. Of course it was so heavily overcast you really couldn’t tell (If you’ve ever seen the American version of “The Killing”, it really is that dark here in the winter, but they exaggerated the rain).

Tomorrow we’ll have 3 more seconds of daylight. Wheeeee!

Making Christmas Tree Bows

and they work great for Christmas Gift Bows too :) 
Have you ever noticed that all the Christmas trees and garlands you see in shopping centres are nearly always just covered with a mass of bows and baubles?  It’s a great way to ‘fill’ the space.  Over the years I have built up a good collection of decorations and ornaments but we have a big tree so there is still space to fill.  Time to make some bows.
To make the bows I used some wired ribbon in pale green and gold, some beading wire and some square diamante buckles.
I cut 2 pieces of ribbon and thread them through the buckle.
I thread a small piece of beading wire through the back of the buckle. To make the bow I formed a loop on each side, so they crossed over at the back.
Twist the beading wire tightly round the ribbon to hold the bow in place, then twist the ends of the wire around the branch to hold the bow on the tree.  Use the wire in the ribbon to shape the bow.
I made about 15 bows for my tree, and they just help to fill the tree.
I think these bows are so pretty and could be used to adorn your Christmas Gifts too.

Thats all from me today folks.
Stay safe, have fun and don’t forget to grab those kits before the discount runs out.
We’ll see you back here tomorrow for more fun and games
