Claire's Birthday

Oh My .. it is Claire's birthday on Weds. (tomorrow) as usual she is pretty excited. Believe it or not .. I am organized. Card is made. Gifts are made. I am just waiting on Jodi Picoult's new book to arrive Sing You Home  - Last yr. for her b'day Claire met Jodi Picoult in person, she attended a book tour in Ely. Fingers crossed the book arrives tomorrow - if not I will have to do an IOU
Just need to wrap her gifts and make a gift certificate - it was meant to be coming in the post but last minute hitches with  her b'day gift of a 1 days basket making course at the Museum of East Anglian Life in Stowmarket has gone pear shaped - a bit of a long story but in short the course, which was meant to be happening May 7th, has had to be postponed until July.
The gifts I have had a hand in creating are a Creativ Wooden key Cabinet
and a pair of Angel earrings Angel Earrings
A Tag using a fab. freebie Digital Image at

  1. All gorgeous Carole - I do hope the book comes for you. I know how worrying it is when things are ordered for birthdays and are late to arrive.
    I'd forgotten Claire's birthday was on the same day as my daughter Laura's. Do wish her Happy Birthday from me won't you?
    Love to you both - have a lovely day.
