    Hi Susanne, at last I know the name of the chocolates used in the lovely box you made on February 26 – I made that box, however it is empty as I don’t have anything to fill it 😦 but it is still pretty 🙂 I like this one you made today too, so simple, but so effective. I was made up with myself because I found the chocolates on Amazon when I was shopping and just added them to my basket, I thought they were a bit pricey; seven quid a box, but I really wanted to try them and make the chocolate pouch as a gift for someone, it wasn’t till I was checking my order I discovered there were only four chocolates in the box – that’s too rich, even for me! I recognize the brand, they make Toffifee; one of my favourites, so I will get my super-shopper (my Dad) on to it and hope he can find some of the Merci for me. A classy looking pouch, that holds a lovely chocolate surprise, what more could you want!?! chocolate in my case LOL! Great tip about the ribbon knot (I am going to write that down), I was never in the Brownies and am all fingers and thumbs, sometimes my bows and knots are perfect, other times just a horrible mess. Thanks for another crafting session x Love to you x and give Molly & Quinn a stroke from me xx

      Hi Karen, thanks for the hugs to the kittens. They sure love it when people mention them online or maybe it’s me, anyway it’s very kind. I am pleased that you like the projects and perhaps one day soon something will arrive in the mail for you (I may have sent something the long way round lol). I had computer problems this weekend and had to reinstall my operating system as I stupidly allowed some kind of malware on my computer. Was a horrible test of my patience and skill as an experienced computer user to fix it. Sigh. I am hoping to get things working again so I can produce some more videos and of course my dreaded bookkeeping (man it sucks). Anyway, thanks for popping by and making comment.

    Oh, that puts my printer not working into perspective, hope everything is ok for you soon. I will keep an eye out for the Postman bringing something from you (always a treat x) You need to look out for a little something in the mail yourself 😉 (just sayin’!) Have a good week and good luck with the bookkeeping!?! x
