Butterfly Birthday Cake

Busy busy week again but I still had time to make my Mum a gorgeous cake -

Chocolate sponge, Galaxy Cookie buttercream, dark chocolate ganache and topped off with a white chocolate crunch butterfly.

Soo yummy :-D

We also picked up another male leopard gecko yesterday. Photos to follow.

Hard Weekend

So this weekend is has been very tough. We had our hearts set on something and had started to get excited about a big change but the problem is that its all set on the choice that someone else makes. A choice that's not ours but can change the path of our life.

Trying not to be all gloomy I set to wrapping my mums birthday present ready for next week. Out came some old wrapping paper, a hot glue gun and my jar of ribbons. And the is the result -

To be honest I really surprised myself as this was the first crafty thing I've done for months!

Gorgeous and reusable! I really enjoyed making it, think I might make another as a tutorial :-D

Back to work tomorrow. How I live for the weekends. Real shame that this one doesn't have the bight finish I was hoping for.

Disappearing Act

This time I have to say I did a very long disappearing act!

Thinks have really taken off with me breeding Leopard Geckos. Take a look here - South West Geckos

I've had a 11 hatchlings this year, more than I dreamt I'd have. Last week my last two eggs hatched -

Plans are going strong for next year, super excited.

These guys have taken up most of my spare time so crafting has taken a back burner but art and photography are creeping back into my life! :-D

This morning was a really heavy frost, turned my garden into a thing of beauty -

All being well we're going to be moving house in the new year which will involve a huge clear out :-/ but clear home clear mind. To me the key is storage.

Stay tuned, I won't be long this time! Promise!
