Gas Street, Birmingham

It's about this time of the year that I start getting withdrawal symptoms and panic about the safe place that I hid my locking gloves in. Will I ever be able to find them again in time.

I packed them into an acetate box which came with 50 blank cards from The Works, taking off all the sticky stuff and replacing it with my own decorations.

I then had to make a card for the new baby.
