Some exciting things have happened lately

Firstly when I went to check on my shop this morning
~like I do every morning~
I had a lovely surprise
the treasury that I had made a few days ago
 was on the Etsy UK front page
I was so chuffed
especially as it features some lovely friends of mine

A couple of weeks ago I entered a fabulous giveaway
over at Alix's gorgeous blog
 and guess what????
I won the runner-up prize!
This is the first giveaway that I have ever won
so I was understandably a little over excited
Mr Sweet wondered what on earth was going on!

want to see what I won?
of course you do

This Cath Kidston book is gorgeous 
there are so many projects I want to try

 Making magazine and a toy making suplement
brimming with wonderful ideas

♥  Look at these buttons

and this brooch is just divine 
the stitching is so perfect and tiny

I am so thrilled with all of my goodies Alix
you are so generous
'thank you' from the bottom of my heart

If you haven't seen Alix's blog please pop over 
she is one clever and lovely lady

Do you remember in my last post 
I said that we had a girly craft evening planned?
and I said that I had baked a little something?
well it was one of the crafty ladies birthdays a while back
we always have a little celebration for each of our birthdays
It was my turn to make the cake

It did look pretty but it sunk badly in the middle
we still enjoyed it though!
unfortunately one of 'the Guild' couldn't make it
hope you are feeling better lovely C

Before I say goodbye for today
I just wanted to say a BIG 'thank you'
for all of your kind words on my last post
 and 'HELLO' to my new followers


Have a great week

P.S I shall be back later in the week with my raspberry and marzipan muffin recipe
