A big thank you to those came to my Mulled Wine and Mince Pie fundraiser at home before Christmas....we raised a brilliant £121.19 for The Hospice of St. Francis in Berkhamsted.
I hope we can do this again - it was a great way to catch up on a bit of gossip as well as shop, eat and drink!! 
Thank you.

Valentine's sneaky peek....

I've started making things for Valentine's Day (which I'd not done before)....but when I came across some second-hand books on love poems and mills&boon! got me thinking and so I started making these paper gifts....'message in a bottle'...flower hearts...'apple of my eye'...I'll update with more photos as and when!

Sleepover Party

Well it's that time of year again when eldest chick has turned 9 and all she wanted was a sleepover party with pizza and movies, and of course, the obligatory hot chocolate!
We had great fun with this one and really went to town.....
Totally edible (except the candles!) 'hot chocolate' birthday cake complete with 'whipped' cream and marshmallows...

 .......Invites in the shape of sleeping masks........
...the Hot Chocolate Bar for the movie interval...........and the Breakfast Bar for the morning after!
..the 'Bedtime' Party Bags...slipper socks, lavender bag, milk&cookies, hot chocolate on a stick..
...and a 'cup' of 'hot chocolate' cake to take away!
All eventually asleep under a canopy of balloons and 'stars'
