    Hi there

    I am thrilled you have joined in my “Free and Easy” theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response – over 600 so far !

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a “copied and pasted” message, for which I apologise.

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year.

    Have you entered my new candy
