This was the first tree skirt I didn't become a tree skirt as I couldn't bring myself to cut it LOL so it stayed whole and became a table cover

I love Bucilla kits and this stocking was so quick to make.

My first Bucilla kit, made about 8 years ago and still looks as good as new! :D

The sleigh I threatened to post a few weeks ago LOL and some cream cartons with chocs inside YUM!!

Sleigh, cream cartons,snowman advent and yet another bucilla table cover/tree :Dskirt :D

Merry Christmas Everyone !

when IS Santa coming???
all the stocking were hung

this one needs examining!!!


I hope you all had a Wonderful and Joyful Christmas. I'm sure you were all on the "NICE" list LOL
I had a super time with my family and couldn't have asked for a happier day especially as this was Jack's second Christmas and he was really excited.
Jack helped us all to hang our stockings at the fireplace and was especially careful with Storm's stocking....he does love her so much :D
Santa came to our house late on Christmas Eve and we managed to take a few sneaky photos without being spotted LOL
Christmas morning arrived here at 9ish ( which was very good considering) and Jack's face was a picture when he came down stairs and saw all the presents left by Santa ( Grandpa's face was one of shock too ;)LOL)

Jack's Christmas Photo Shoot

Jack had his photo shoot yesterday morning and what fun we had ... including the photographers LOL . Lauren bought Jack a fab Santa suit and he loooked sooooo cute in it. Now, keeping the hood up for the photos ... that was another matter. In the end we had to admit defeat LOL

I haven't yet uploaded the photos of my Christmas crafting from my camera .... SURPRISE!!!! NOT! LOL.
I was productive again today and put the finishing touches to a sleigh I bought last October from "MDF Man" at the SECC. He has some super MDF blanks all primed ready for altering and at extremely reasonable prices. Fee and I bought more goodies this year but they may have to wait till Dec2010 to be altered LOL.

Off now to try and upload those photos ....

night night

FA LA LA LA LA ! ! ! !

I'm back....... I had a great day in Perth on Thursday with my BF Fee, we spent the day shopping for Christmas gifts and decorations and I was in Seventh Heaven LOL !

We left early in the morning ( well early for me)and had the whole day to ourselves just rooting around in the cute shops. We did manage a couple of hours with Hazel who owns the FAB "South Littleton Farm" in Blairgowrie, Fee was delivering a Scor-pal board and we stayed to make a couple of projects and give Hazel a head start with her board.( I think she loves it as much as we do) A group of us are having a scrapbooking weekend at South Littleton in January and I can't wait, the facilities are superb and the craft room.......well go and check it out for yourselves... you will not be disappointed, I promise!!

Hazel showed us some Journal Jars she had made for a craft fair and they are wonderful. As we were leaving she very kindly gave us one each, they are so beautiful and shall be treasured :). We left Blairgowrie after 4pm and as it was already dark we were lucky enough to see all the Christmas lights in the town. WOW !!! Beautiful !!!

I've been quite productive this week and have managed to make a few christmas goodies, shall post photos tomorrow

night night
