Of course, i jumped at the chance to join this fabulous team and although it is going to make me a tad busy, my little man started school for the first time this week so i am going to have a few extra hours to do what i love best... housework! Errrr, no! Crafting!
The fabulous Choccy and the team have been so welcoming and i just want to say '' Thank You'' for having me.
