What I woke up to this morning - my housemate put it up!!Its all been hidden in his room as im not trusted not to open it all at once apparently  Shocked Grin Grin Grin  (the tree had a present under it, but that was opened too quickly to hang around for a photo!)

I got an amazing craft holder Cheesy Its so awesome, already put to good use! Its great for taking my craft stuff round the house, and holding it neatly in my room, I love it, thank you!!

And the advent calendar, its so beautiful, sorry, our house is so dark it was hard to get a photo that actually shows the awesomeness

And I will post a photo too, because I already uploaded it  Grin Grin

There is the bookmark, as I read a lot, and often read a few books at once (some are too big to take on the bus etc, or too dramatic for night time!) so i  cant have enough bookmarks Tongue
And the purse toasty thing is cute, here holding my phone Cheesy
And the hairclips in a cute box - one question, one of the toasts made a break for freedom - which glue did you use so i can stick him back on?
And also the cute needle book, so sweet, and travel sized!
Thanks for everything Annie Grin Grin

Photos of my latest craftings:

13. Sew a phone case for Mum's birthday.
my mum's phone didnt have a case, but now it does!

14. Knit small blue bird for Mum's birthday.
My mum loves birds, especially small cute ones, this one will never fly away! I used a pattern from knitted toy box Smiley

15. Make a diary cover for my new academic year diary.
It has a pen holder for a 4colour pen - im going to be snazzy and colour co-ordinated this year, ooh!

16. Make a phone case for my phone.
It has a pouch, and a contrasting inside fabric!

17. Notebook and pen holder for friend.

18. Make a case for Florence.
My grandparents got me a solar charger for christmas last year, its awesome! It has loads of little connectory things, for the different shaped plug things in stuff (umm, yeah, thats the technical term!), so I wanted to make a case with a zip compartment to keep them all in Smiley

19. Make notebook cover for friend.
My friend is going travelling for a year (not jealous at all!), so i made her a notebook cover for her birthday, with a matching slip on pen holder (except i ran out of pens, so started filling it with wax crayons - very grown up Grin
