I am so sorry that the blog has not been updated for a couple of months. I have been so busy with work and also making invites and jewellery at short notice for a couple of friends. I am going to get it all up to date today and during the week and then we will be ready to kick off a brand new challenge for June. 

Thanks for being so understanding. Do not forget though that we are always active on the facebook group - HERE is the link xxx
