If any of you have missed this publication- do look out for it. It not only has a fresh and clean approach to its design but comes with a fab set of stamps and the majority of the projects use the set in different styles. The accompanying stamp set is A4 sized and this is one of my projects in there. I was given the task of simply embossing. One of those things you often bypass on your way to the latest and most exciting trend. It was good to get back to basics and do some shrink plastic tags which again I’ve not tried on ages.

This is where you can find out more about the mag Its every 8 weeks and worth subscribing to. I’ve not found it locally- would be interesting to hear where you’ve all seen it?

At the mo I’m planning two parties. One for a lovely girl who’s heading back to the States (wonder if I could hide in her suitcase?!!) and the other is for Will aka ‘mr reluctant party’er’. He’s come around to the idea and is busy helping with the planning.
The only game he actually wants to play is ‘Don’t Eat Tommy Smartie’. The woman who invented this game needs a medal. A truly bizarre game with the ability to turn kids into a giggling mass!
You have a plate of smarties ( obviously limit the amount on there or there’ll be a ton of green faced kids moping around your celebration). 10-20 smarties. The kid ‘on’ leaves the room.
The rest of the kids decide and choose a particular smartie. Try to get them NOT to touch the sweets! The ‘on’ kid comes back in and chooses one and eats it. He continues to eat until he picks up the smartie and everyone screams ‘don’t eat Tommy Smartie’.
Yup.
I thought it sounded ‘lame’ ( to quote Will) too. But honestly- it was THE party game everyone loved.
Go figure.

Right- with 2 bouncy boys at home ‘sick’ (or not as the case is), my time is definitely not my own
See you soon when I’ll have been totally baked and partied out!
PS-the find the pony game still stands. Naughty Taheerah hid a pony in one of my posts. There’s a stampy prize up for grabs!

    Hi Keren, Love your card. We (in our family) have played that
    party game since my children were small – they have their own
    families now! But we call it WACKO – and we play with any kind
    of sweets. Sometimes we play GIANT WACKO – we have the
    fun size choc bars, even better.
    Lotsaluv, Jeanne xx

    Great story about Tommy Smartie, it does sound lame, but there’s no knowing what kids will love. May try it at our church Christmas party. Congrats on being Moxie Fab blogger!
