* My orange vintage fabric bag making it to the front page of Etsy! *

* Making this cute bunny and snowman display in the children's library at work (some young people who volunteer at the library made the background and I added the bunnies, snowman, the black snowflakes and the poem, which I found here - it says 'A chubby little snowman, Had a carrot nose, Along came a rabbit, And what do you suppose?That hungry little bunny, Looking for his lunch, ATE the snowman's carrot nose...Nibble, nibble, CRUNCH!' - in case it's too small for you to read in the photo!) I LOVE getting paid to make bunnies! *

I also had a lovely review written about my blog by Joddle of WasteAM where I am proud to say she named The Last Biscuit as the 'Best Eco Lifestyle Blog' in her current series about blogging...she writes lots of interesting, well written articles on lots of eco-issues as well as doing a podcast I can't listen to because my PC doesn't have sound!  Check her out if you haven't already...she's lovely!  One of her readers, Stephen, also wrote this lovely comment about T'Last Biscuit  being all marshmallowy and nice is that...seriously guys I'll get a big head!  Thank you sooo much!  I was also contacted by Sarah from Greenty, a new green travel guide, who asked me to add my blog to their directory, which looks an exciting thing to be part of and full of other interesting blogs to discover!  Thanks Sarah!
