Homemade Bread

Slight Change from crafting today - I made my first batch of proper home made bread and here are the results!!  Kneading the bread took ages and I'm not sure I kneaded it for long enough (although I was going for 15 mins!!) but its great for destressing and for the bingo wings - and a bit of a work out! Got a bit of a sweat on! :D  I put it in the airing cupboard to rise and it escaped from the bowl! lol!!  I've made some sandwiches for Owen from it and it tastes really nice.  Will definitely make it again

Christmas Cards

So this year's Christmas cards have been made!! (and mainly written too!! Go me!! :D) 

Here's a robin for the grandparents made from Isaac's footprints 

Christmas trees from Isaac's footprints for Aunties and Uncles

For Owen's mum from us two

For my Dad and Stepmum from us two

For my Mum and Stepdad to be from us two

For my brother and sister in law

All the other cards for everyone else

These last few were made from cutting out pictures of Christmas cards from a Christmas catalogue - solved the problem of not knowing which design I liked best!! :D
