Scrapbooking 2010

This time last year I wrote about new year's resolutions - and this year (like the last) I'll be trying to make a couple of small changes and sticking to them, rather than setting myself up for failure :) However, in addition to new year's resolutions, around...

Top Ten Christmas Songs

The Eyes Have It

I've been watching Rebecca Ferguson's journey through X Factor with interest. Remember her first audition? Beautiful girl; wonderful voice - and yet as she admitted herself, she's lost confidence. As Simon said "you've got to start looking people...
