This weeks New Releases

Pop over to the challenge blog and check out the inspiration from the rest of my fabulous teamies.

I thought I would show you the fabulous birthday present I got from my Grandson's, my daughter has a friend who makes personalised bags, she paints a picture on the front of the bag of a big eyed girl and matches the eye and hair colour to the recipient, adding their name and something to do with their interests (mine has a pile of books as I love to read).

Isn't it brilliant, I just wish I was that slim and that my eyelashes were that long (short and blonde unfortunately) LOL!
I think you can order them through Facebook, but she only takes orders on the first of the month as she usually fills her order book up for the whole month in just one day, (they are very popular!).

In my last post I mentioned that I was off to see a Westlife concert that evening with my friend -well I never got there - very sadly my friend's brother in law was rushed into hospital on Tuesday afternoon and passed away at 8pm that evening, he was 51 years old, the same age as Julie and I. He died of a Pulmonary Embolism. Julie and I will have been friends for 40 years this September, and I would like to take this opportunity to send heartfelt condolences to her and her family.

Life is fragile, make the most of every minute
hugs to you all,
Colette xx
