This is the kind of Rudolph that I think will go down well with men.

Afternoon all.
I'm back.
I've got lots going on in the background just now, catching up on things after Christmas and planning more of my kitchen redecoration.  In fact yesterday I spent the whole day ironing....which was really exciting.  Not!
Back to normal now, kids back to school and hubby and I back to work, even though we've both worked days over the festive season we've also had some family time too.  We've had a couple of good nights out with close friends playing all the new board games that Santa brought which was a giggle.  Now to go through the house and have a major sort out before Spring clean time.

I did get a gel plate for Christmas but it has yet to be opened.  I'm hoping to create some spare time to play next week, that's my theory anyway!

On to today and I will be honest I saw this next picture on Pinterest and thought what a great MAN idea for Christmas.

Rather than sending Christmas cards to my team mates at work I decided to send the men a bottle of Windswept beer, a local brewery from Lossiemouth, the next town to ours.  For the ladies a little bottle of wine.  I made them up just like this picture but in my usual I didn't take photographs. 
I would like to give credit to the person who came up with this idea but I've followed it back to source and no blog has been mentioned.  So to whoever you are thank you very much for sharing.
I attached tags on individual bottles with a note "Have a drink on me this Christmas!"
With work as busy as it was in the run up to Christmas, the drinks went down very well with my colleagues. 

That's all from me today, back soon with more.  I'm away into Elgin tomorrow morning for another one to one card lesson and am looking forwards to some crafty fun.  Take care and happy crafting to you all.  x
