How are you?
I'm officially declaring today "Watching Films On The Sofa Day", thereby giving everyone a free pass to cancel all other plans and snuggle down under a blanket with Hugh Jackman/ Reese Witherspoon/ their Hollywood hottie of choice. Shall I post a film schedule so we can all watch them simultaneously? I'm thinking National Treasure, My Best Friend's Wedding, and The Princess Bride.
This week has been very full on; busy at work, busy at home, planning for Christmas... I was very grateful to reach the weekend in one piece.
Thankfully, the week wasn't all work and no play; I spent two delightful evenings at Fireworks pottery painting studio decorating a cup and saucer, tapping my feet to the lovely owner's eclectic music collection and drinking multiple mugs of tea. I'm very proud to say that I didn't accidentally wash my brush out in my tea once; something that was a regular occurrence during my art A-level days. I won't be able to share the finished pieces until they've been fired next week, but here's a sneaky preview:
Yesterday I found the perfect crackers to dress our table on Christmas day; they've got magic tricks inside them, and I think they look rather amazing too.
Finally, I've got some VERY exciting news to share, which involves this sandy-whiskered gentleman who you may remember from my crafting failures post last year:
I didn't tell you at the time, but I sent a photo of his sad little face to Heather at CraftFail who then asked if she could use him in her book! Of course, I said yes! I thought no more about it until a few weeks ago when Heather emailed to tell me her CraftFail book had been published! Eep!
I think it's absolutely hilarious that of all the craft projects I've done, the utterly crap one has been officially published. The best part is that Helen put him in the kids' craft section of the book! I'm assuming it's because I look so darn youthful :p
Now the exciting part for you; Helen has very kindly sent me a copy of the CraftFail book to give away to one of you lovely lot. Just follow the instructions below before midnight on 31 November (next Sunday).

P.S. I'm linking up to Hannah's The Week That Was: Captured. Please do pop over and wish the lass luck- she's in the process of moving her whole life (including a lively toddler) from Sussex to Yorkshire!
