Up to Date ...

Hi Everybody,

What a week this has been and I have lots to be grateful for.

On Tuesday it was my birthday and last Sunday my Daughter and Grandson arranged a Sunday lunch for the family at a really lovely restaurant.

I had flowers and gifts and lots of gift cards to spend as I want. 

My Granddaughters bought me Pandora charm and so I went to town and got the bracelet and more charms to add to it. 

It is in the new Rose colour and it is sparkly and beautiful and I shall wear it a lot. Especially today when I go to my Grandsons restaurant this evening.

I used all of the vouchers and gift cards that I had been given and got lots of goodies. Perfume ... New shirts ... New sun glasses ... and lots more. Then we went to lunch and that was a lovely meal too.

Today my YouTube followers are  way over 52,000 and this week they have rolled over to 10 million views ... can you believe those figures. I am amazed but so very very happy about it.

And to top it all I have a brand new collection of 6x6 Card & Box die sets coming out so watch this space. This is a size that many of you have asked for and it will be with us soon. And it too is a beautiful collection

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

    Love the bracelet by the way. My granddaughters have a few of the rings Pandora do. They are lovely as well.

  2. wow, glad you had such a happy birthday. you are so good. if I get gift cards they go in my wallet and grow legs and maybe 2 years later I use them. I am awful. just not a shopper unless I really want/need something. then when I do I can't find it. looking forward to your new release. haugs to ruby for me. maybe even an extra treat.
