Tagged, Snow, Lumpy & More New Goodies!

Hi all, I've got lots to post today so let's get right to it.

Firstly, I was tagged a couple of days ago by SemSee.

The rules are:

1. Go to the 6th folder, in your picture folder and select the 6th picture.
2. Post the Picture and an explanation on your blog about it.
3. Select 6 others to do the same and let them know.

Well, I only have one folder, so it will have to be the 6th picture from that folder which is:

This is my wonderful 10 year old son with some Wax Lips that were sent to him from a friend of mine in the States. I don't think you can get them over here in the UK, if you can, I have never come across them! Amazingly I was surprised that they tasted so good! Very nice to chew on too!
I would pick 6 others to tag but I know that this is a kinda old and well known tag and I do not have the time to go through all the blogs I follow lol, so if you are reading this concider yourself tagged if you haven't already been tagged :)

Secondly, we had lots of snow all day today. We do tend to get a few flakes here and there once a year in the UK but apparently today was the heaviest fall of snow in the last 20 years. It makes me laugh though because they are never prepared for when we do have snow. No gritter on the roads, and those that are, only concentrate on the major roads, Airports are closed, buses ain't running (again a lack of gritters). Which of course means people cannot get to work, so some work places are closed or severely short staffed etc. etc.

Also, because we get little snow we don't have snow ploughs like they do in the States and other countries, just because we don't get this much snow very often, the government think it is not worth it!

But when I was little, the snow was much deeper and heavier, yet we never complained, there had to be 6 foot of snow before we were kept home and we loved it!

No picture I'm afraid. It's 8pm* and the snow is turning to mush. Maybe I will post one or two tomorrow if it continues to snow overnight.

Thirdly, as I stated in a previous post, I finished cross-stitching Lumpy, but I just got around to ironing and mounting him into his little frame. So here he is, Lumpy, from Winnie the Pooh, and January's finished mini kit.

Isn't he cute? I haven't decided which mini kit to finish for February yet, still there's plenty of time left right?

And finally the first bunch of my last lot of goodies arrived today (no more spending on craft stuff 'till next month!!) I still have a few bits and pieces to come yet but here is what came today (I have done it in two pictures because I did not want you to see that I still have my Christmas Penguins tablecloth still on the table lol):

Here you can see: Corrugated Card, 4x Co-ordinating Dovecraft Papers, 2x Hot Melt Glue Sticks, Tweezers, Craft Knife, Large Orange Scissors, Small Purple Decoupage Scissors, Mini Angel Stamp Set and a U R 21 Embellishment. You can also just see the right hand side view.

Here you can see the 7x Embossing Powders, 2x Double Sided Sticky Tape, Hand Stamped By..... Stamp, Clear Away Tray, Black Pigment Ink and Silver Pigment Ink. There is also some Gold Pigment Ink, as seen in the above picture and some Clear Pigment Ink (not show).

I ripped open everything from it's packaging to show you that once all the packaging is removed it doesn't look like much at all! As you can see I have stacked almost everything in the Clear Away Tray!

Still, I do have some more items to come from two other companies, so I am looking forward to that.
Hopefully they should be here in the next few days.

Still to come: Quilling Kit, Anita's Rose Happy Birthday Border, Light Box and a few other things but I forgot what I ordered LOL

So anyway, I have 2 new and empty storage boxes and lots of loose little new goodies. Time to go fill up those boxes!

'Till next time.

* I know the time now is 11:30pm but I did write that section at 8pm lol - I have been doing other stuff in between writing this entry!
