Add fun to your New Year
Hello I know most of us are still rushing around getting ready for holiday celebrations me included.
So I am finishing up for the year on my blog. School holidays start later on today so I am going to be in Mum mode for the next few weeks enjoying the holidays with my family and friends. Here is a little Happy New Year gift for you to make. Two party hats to bring in the New Year and I hope that you all have an awesome 2013.

Easy to make just download the templates and print onto some light weight card.
Follow the shape and cut them out.
The party hat you just make a cone shape and glue the side and add some stretchy elastic thread to attached to your head.

The party crown glue the two sides together you might need to adjust to fit your head and trim any excess card at the top and sides.
You can add some glitter and rhine stones to add some New Year sparkle.

P.S If you make the hats send me a photo it would be nice to see andI can put them on the blog next year.

From my desk this week

Hello from my desk this week. The year is coming to an end soon.
I thought I would share some of the books I have been reading this year. They have helped move things along with my business and life. I might have mentioned some of these book in my blog already.
There is no harm in talking about them again. Maybe give you some last minute inspiration for gifts for someone you know or for yourself. I am in planning mode for next year. I am been sick again with another cold so I am feeling like I am walking through thick mud dragging myself to the finish line of the end of the year. Planning and reading is giving me a new refreshing perspective and feel ready for new starts and challenges for next year. I can focus on having a cracking good time in the holidays.
Kindle has been my friend this year making a quick read here and there far more accessible. You know those long bus journeys, dentist waits or in a cafe waiting for a friend to turn up.  Sorry this is not a plug for kindle or Amazon I just use the two services a lot. You can find these book elsewhere too.

Here is my list of books I have found helpful this year.
