Let the Fun Begin……..

Let the Fun Begin…..

Let the fun begin 1


and the fun commenced yesterday at 12:00 Australia time with Jen and the start of the Ustream Stream-A-Thon, that scanned the globe covering all continents in a 24hr crafting extravaganza!! and organised by the lovely Lily … full details of the individual streams can be found here you can watch them all even if you missed the live event yesterday.

My time slot was 5:30pm GMT London time and I made a party chest hamper which was filled with gorgeous flowers and party balloons, tooters, poppers etc… and this was my giveaway prize for the end of my stream…

The winner was the lovely Jaen in Canada, which also coincided with her wedding anniversary!!

So here are a few pictures of the finished box…

It just leaves me to send you my very best wishes for the New Year and I hope you all have a wonderful time
