Does ANYTHING ever go to plan???

well as you have probably noticed my thrifty day's till Christmas came to an abrupt end a few weeks ago.
Everything had been going swimmingly, then I had a really crappy couple of weeks - and none of it was my own fault! Family stuff...I am still dreaming of winning the lottery and have had a tiny cottage that is away from it all and ready for my escapes, earmarked for the winnings for years now! lol - one day.

The thrifting is continuing, I can't wait for the Jumble sale season to start again as I have a list of things we need, can't afford but could quite likely find at a jumble sale (hubby is after a pressure cooker!) and Baby Fig and I have signed up to have a stall at a new local 'Crafty Vintage' fair on 11th Feb. 

I have been busy making more up-cycled items for both folksy and etsy - I am very pleased with these scented hearts for valentines day   filled with a divine vintage rose scent.

I have had some nice news to sweeten all the poo! I was asked to write a little 300 word sales story for Craft Seller magazine! It has been submitted and I should be in there in issue 9 - on sale on the 14th March, so if you get it look out for me! if you don't, take a sneaky peaky in the supermarket/news stand.

I shall be trying my best to get back on track with the thrifty tips and stories as soon as I can!

Those scented hearts are adorable.

Well done on getting to write for the Craft seller, I have to admit I have not heard of it either, so will have to check it out.

Happy New Year by the way.

I'll be checking out your article in the Craft Seller magazine. Been trying to find an excuse to buy it for ages and now I have a really good reason!!

Hope things start to look up a bit. Families can make life so very complicated and awkward can't they!
