Perhaps I should complain about the cold weather more seems to have bought about a mini heatwave the last two days and it has been so sunny and warm here today...fingers crossed it will stay that way for the weekend...especially as its the last one before the kiddywinks go back to school on Monday.

Well this week at CES's all about drink...not necessarily alcohol but judging by the design team makes this week we are all a boozy lot and have reflected this in our bottoms up, down the hatch and chin chin...we've had a lot of fun with this challenge...hope you do too! So RAISE YOUR GLASSES and then get crafting...oh errrr...maybe not in that order!
