Our love story begins just before Christmas 1992 which is when I first met James.
We were both teenagers, and felt as if we had known each other our entire lives, our connection was so strong, and so we made it 'official' and became boyfriend and girlfriend on Christmas Eve ...
I now take you to Christmas day morning 2003, both in our pajamas, James knelt beside me and proposed to me ...
One year on, on Christmas Eve morning 2004 all dressed up, off we went to be married.
We took two good friends with us, and in a 'secret' wedding we made our vows and exchanged rings.
It was our special day ...
3 years on we are as happy & in love as ever.
*Merry Christmas everyone*
I really hope you all have a wonderful holiday time and that all your wishes come true, and may the new year bring love, happiness & joy to you all.
Lots of love

Well I thought I would share at least a few photos of my seasonal decorations, even though my camera wouldn't be kind and take nice photos.
Anyhoo the above picture is of some little gingerbread men that I bought from *The Blueberry Patch* a few years ago! They are just adorable, and were made and then dipped in wonderfully scented wax, they smelt soooooo yummy when they came I could have just taken a huge bite and bit off one of their little legs!!!
This little wreath used to belong to my Nana and I received it when she died. I think it must be from the 50's. I remember she always used to hang it on the back of her front door, and I used to spend ages just looking at the adorable little red reindeer!
This little fellow is a cute felt Santa, here he is stood by my willow heart on my welsh dresser. I think he is soooo cute with his little bag of twigs!
This is one of my wreaths and I only picked it up a week or so ago and it is sitting in my living room on top of a painted & distressed cupboard.
And finally this is our tree, I really couldn't get a good picture of it at all. I have taken so many photos of it and it just doesn't look that good, but hey ho never mind.
It looks really bare in this photo. You can't really see the lights either! I made all the decorations apart from the little candy canes, but all the hearts and stars & the big willow star at the top were made by me.
I wish I could have shown you more of our decorations but all the other photos just turned out so bad, but I hope you enjoyed seeing these few photos!
I hope you can pop by again sometime soon before Christmas so that I can share my wedding anniversary with you all!!!
Love to you all

I just wanted to share with you some of the Christmas cards I made this year.
My lovely sister very kindly gave me lots and lots (and by that I mean *loads*) of card making supplies that she had won in a competition!
I received beautiful papers, lots of different card types and envelopes, lots and lots of different stamps & numerous lovely coloured ink pads, a DVD about stamping, beautiful Christmas themed ribbons and lots more too!!!
So I made these very simple cards to look like gifts tied with ribbon, they had little tags on too that said 'Merry Christmas' or 'Let it Snow'!
Well I hope you are all nearly ready for the big day and that you are enjoying the season.
I have really enjoyed seeing all your seasonal decorating on your blogs and I know I haven't posted any of mine (well apart from my lovely heart below, which I absolutely love!) but I have tried and tried to get some good photos but for some reason my camera is just not playing nicely! But I will try and get a few posted in the next few days (*hopefully*)!
*Seasons Greetings to you all*

I *Love* Snow!!!!!!! I mean I REALLY love snow!!! I love love love it!!!
Eeek, and guess what ... it's snowing outside right now!!!!! *Yay*
I'm doubly excited as we are decorating our house tonight! James and I always do it on the Saturday night 2 weeks before Christmas and this is the time we exchange our Christmas cards too. We open the bubbly and get to it, champagne flute in one hand and wrestling with tree lights with the other! We have so much fun, we snack on nibbles along the way, (tonight it's cheese and biscuits, mmmmmmm) we have Bing Crosby & Frank Sinatra singing Christmas songs in the background, the bubbly keeps on flowing and by the end we do tend to get a bit giddy and giggly, once we are a bit too giddy we tend to decide that it's done, whether it is or not really!!!! But I always finish off and tweak the next day!
*Squeal* I've just looked outside the window again and it's still snowing, I just can't believe it, I'm so excited! Now I know it isn't going to lay, but just to see those beautiful snowflakes falling from above makes it feel so much like Christmas.
I *heart* snow!

Sorry for the lack of blogging again this week lovelies, but I have had a horrible cold!
It has been one of those horrid horrid colds ~ you know the ones where you can't move without every part of you aching and you are all runny and disgusting and the sneezing is endless and only makes you ache more plus I have asthma and so of course it goes to my chest and feels like someone is stabbing me every time I cough!
But the good news is is that I am feeling better today so hopefully it will be gone very soon ~ I really hope so as I need to catch up on my Christmas shopping next week!!!
*Eeek* and can you believe it is December already .... he will be here very soon!!! *Giggle*
Anyhoo hope you have all been having a wonderfully wintery weekend (eek try saying that 3 times after a few egg nogs)!
Toodle-oo for now.
