Birthdays and Bear Fairs

Hi folks, its been a busy week here. Firstly I'm back to work now as the schools are back, so that always takes a bit of adjusting too. It was my birthday Wednesday, and had a pretty ordinary day but got some nice little pressies and was made a fuss of, which is always nice. I've put some pics of my pressies further down. I even had a bunch of flowers from hubby, which is the first time in 11 years, so was pretty shocked, but was chuffed to bits.
Yesterday my SIL and I went to Kensington for the hugglets bear fair. As you all probably know my SIL makes the most gorgeous bears and can be found here and here. We had a stall in the basement, which we actually quite like coz its nearer the loo's ;o). We had the best day, in fact she's never sold so many bears in one fair before and had lots of orders it was great, and sooooo busy all day. She only had two cupcake bears left, all the other cupcakes were snapped up. Sorry the pics aren't great forgot my camera so took these on my phone (birthday present from hubby ;o)

I'm all inspired to start creating now, so may delve into my craft box this week and start making again. Especially with Christmas around the corner (sorry i said the C word!)

Here's my birthday pressies. (I got lots of chocs and wine .... ;o)

Flowers from Hubby

Sunflowers from my friends Marie and Tracy.
See you soon!! .....Pixie xxxxx

Great birthday pressies, glad you had a good one!
Those teddies are adoreable.
I love the 'c' word. It's a very exciting time is the run up to Yule; I adore Autumn and Winter. Have fun with your craft box :) x

Happy Birthday Pixie, what lovely pressies :) I've already mentioned the C word, so don't worry about it ;) When you make pressies, you need to start early. What will you be making?
