What's Hot and what's Not.....

Joining in again with Loobylu again this week -

What's Hot

Getting the cute little Pipple cards back from Moo today. Love them. They're green on the back which you can't see, and I'm really happy with them.

My Bond
Shopping today for a tuxedo (for his High School Dinner Dance) with my 15 year old who is nearly six feet tall now and who looked like a young James Bond when he tried it on. Made my heart somersault with pride. That's MY boy!!!!! (no photo yet - but I WILL get one on the night!!)

Advent calendars and all that jazz..

I do LOVE this time of year and the build up to Christmas! I must say though, that since I started all this crafting malarky it is not as relaxing as it used to be. Exciting though, and challenging, and fun. Definitely fun.

Dare I say the P word again? I do apologise for those of you sick of the Pipples already but when I look up from my sewing or accounts! (eugghh yes I know!!) as I did earlier today and see their little faces staring at me, well, just look..... they make me happy.

What's Not

Bank errors
Spent/wasted loads of time this week already trying to sort out how some money has disappeared from my account, slowly but surely every month. Finally realised when the amounts got larger and more frequent. Sorted now but REALLY annoyingly time-wasting!

Being ill
I have a cold and although it's not a bad one, I still feel 'off' and I don't WANT it thank you very much.

Well, that's not too bad is it - only 2 moans and 4 happys. As long as it's that way round it's fine!

PS Don't forget about my GIVEAWAY of yesterday's post. If you leave a comment here then you're in with a chance. I am going get Floss to draw 3 names out on Thursday - that way, I can post Friday if I have the addresses!!! Good luck! xx
PPS You can see other great HOT and NOTs here.


  1. Nope, not sick of the Pipples. They are gorgeous and also bring a smile to my face everytime I see one of your photos of them :)

  2. I don't think it's possible to get sick of the Pipples, they do make you smile! Hope you feel better soon

  3. a young Bond! You'll have to watch that one.. and explain all sorts of things before the big night.. like beautiful women with innuendos for names are nothing but trouble (even more so than just us plain women)

  4. I really like your little Pipple cards! I hear about Moo that they make a great stuff and should check it out!

  5. I just couldn't imagine anyone get sick of the Pipples, they're just too darn cute :)

  6. How could we be sick of Pipples? Look at their ickle faces......it's the eyes, soulful!
    I am so there with you about being busier at christmas the more crafting you get into.....aaaah!!

    take care

  7. Yikes I'd never be sick of the little darlings ... now the nots well I agree with you. Fun isn't this? :)

  8. OMG moo! I'm in love! can't wait to get some mini cards!

  9. Love the Pipples. They are just too cute and they look suitably wrapped for this chilly wet weather!

  10. The Pipples are adorable. I would be suitably happier with them looking on as I work, too.
