I bought the new Sherlock Holmes novel today - The House of Silk by Anthony Horowittz.


Haven't started it yet...........


Well I read it. And rather good it was too. (sighs of relief)
I nearly stopped reading it as in the beginning, I found  Watsons over 'explaining' Holmes behaviour slighty tiresome, obviously done by the author to introduce the new audience (new??? what do you mean Sherlock who????) to the nuances and foibles that is Sherlock Holmes.
And bless Watson, so on the wrong bus, as usual.
 Would defintiely  read any future Sherlock books by Anthony Horowittz - here's hoping!
I really must tidy the spare room aka the craft room. I decided to move my desk about a foot to the right of where it was. I found soooo much stuff under it - alas, most of its now dumped on top of it!

Another birthday in December, and it was a special one - though I didn't find that out till after I'd give given her the card. Thank goodness I put a bit of bling on it.

A small card which can be either for christmas, birthday or just as a note to someone.
I made this using off cuts from a design sheet I printed off, intended for a birthday card, but never actually got round to sticking it all down.

This was done for Peel Off Crazy "contemporary chrsitmas" swap
I decided on black and white (in stark contrast to my usual traditional Chrsitmas cards) The design came from Graphics Fairy And I finally used my brother labelling machine! Woohoo!!

a 30th birthday card for a friend, an easel with added bling. I loved how it turned out, must do more easel cards.
