Not too much of a problem when I am on my own creating (apart from not being able to shout at the cats...) but yesterday was a market day. It definitely makes selling a problem when no-one can hear you! Cue Superhubby who came along to help and in the end we had a great day - a little windy and cold with some fun and merriment for all caused by my attempts to make myself heard but all-in-all not too drastic and my voice actually came back by time we were heading home (hurrah!)
|Snow, snow and more snow |
our little car is buried!

I am seriously hoping and praying that the snow holds off this year - it can snow on Christmas Eve night for a couple of days if it really, really wants to (see, I think I am being more than generous!)
Last year was more than enough to last us for a while and I will be very happy not to have a repeat of the snowy scenes in 2010, thank you very much!
Anyway, today is Handmade Monday and whilst I haven't been creating any brand new designs to show off this week, there have been plenty of orders to complete and restocking to do to cover the rest of the season
Christmas is such a great excuse to let out your inner child and have fun recreating Santa's Grotto in your own home - perfect for big kids like me! I love the fun animals and snowmen, santas, bells, candles, wreaths, trees and lights and secretly wish they could be around all year! It is also one of the best excuses I know to bling out and cover everything with glitter!
All my Christmas designs can be reused year after year if stored properly and are available at the Ali's Craft Studio shop - go on... treat yourself this year to some extra festiveness!
Head on over to Handmade Monday to see what everyone has been up to...
