I know I already showed you the girl doll, but thought I'd show you the boy doll together with her. I only finished the boy at the last minute, I kept putting it off for ages! I was realy pleased with how they both turned out, & my little cousins seemed to like them (even if they did both want the girl doll, eek!).
Cupcake earring holder (thanks Mali ♥), Personal Planner*, Hello Kitty Liberty vanity case, jewellery box, a couple of cute eyeshadow compacts from Mum & a birdcage earring holder from my sister:)
I got more things too, I was totally spoiled this year! I hope my family & friends enjoy their gifts as much as I love mine. We are meeting up with the rest of the family today, so after that I can show you what I made for everyone!
Hope you all got what you wanted & are still having a lovely time (& aren't back at work/school yet!!).

This will probably be my last post before Sunday, so in advance I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, or a happy holiday if you don't celebrate! Thanks for all your support this year, I cannot believe how much this blog has grown, & I just wanted to let you all know I appreciate it so much:)

Cream together butter & sugar with electric whisk, until pale & fluffy. Beat eggs in a separate bowl. Add a bit of flour and a bit of egg in stages, folding lightly in with the creamed mixture. Don't just chuck it all the eggs and flour in at once, this will separate the mixture, and you want to retain as much air as possible from the whisking!
Once folded, pour/spoon mixture into baking tray(s), and bake for 30 mins! Leave to half cool on cooling racks, then add a thick layer of jam, cut & serve whilst still warm! Yummy!

Yep, bought the bag in the end, plus the coral version! So pretty, I obviously needed two! :P
Also got some new glasses, I wanted big geeky frames & I think I succeeded! Haha, I love them, and not bad for £30 each! The tortoiseshell are London Retro, and the purple are by Fabris Lane. I haven't had glasses this big since I was 13!
No real reason for this photo, just thought this arrangement in the spare room was pretty!
