Christmas Baking

Well, we had a team Chrissie party, and I volunteered to make some biccies. I decided to get a little festive with the decorations. I am totally the new Martha Stewart!

Things are very hectic now in the lead up to Christmas. I’ve been nusy trying to make those last minute chrissie presents, but I keep forgetting to take piccies before I wrap them!!

I’m taking 2 weeks off work and doing completely nothing, so I will have plenty of time to get crafty and wipe the dust of my trusty old sewing machine.

Christmas Card Swap

Well I have been super busy making all my cards for Nikkishell's Christmas card swap. As you can see, my once neat craft room has been totally messed up - but i had a lot of fun doing it!!

Each card had to be made out of things that were either rececyled, or from your stash. I made a massive lot of cards last year, and had quite a lot of left over materials to use.

i like this one - i thoughtI was very clever making it too. I had some gorgeous Christmas fabric (only a tiny piece though) so I scanned it on the puter, and printed it out on recycled paper!! That way I can use as much as I want, and I won't run out!!

Think this is my fave - it's my Blythe (who i have owned for a couple of months now, but it still yet to be named!!) sitting in my garden in her little christams outfit I made her.
If you are a recipient of one of my cards, I hope you like them!! :)
To the girls who have sent me cards so far - I am LOVING them and am will post pics of them soon. Big Thankyous!!! xx

Nearly Christmas

Well it's nearly Christmas and I STILL haven't got my laptop fixed. I need to take it to a place which is about an hours drive away, and only open weekdays (typical) and so I really haven't been able to find the time to take it there. So posts have been sporadic when I find the time before / after work!

I finished my cards for the "postcard swap" through Nikishell's website. I had a lot of fun making them - i hope my recipients like them too :) I didn't realise how much cool stuff I had in my stash that I'd forgotten about!!!

I have been trying to also finish Christmas cards to send to my family and friends. I have been frantically cutting and gluing and my craft room currently looks like a fairy has vomited glitter everywhere!!!

I know bitch about how busy it is, but deep down I truly love the craziness! Christmas is totally my favourite time of year. Especially when you find THESE little gems at your local video store for sale!!!!!

These are my childhood memories or wonderful Christmases. Dad and I would sit together on the lounge and watch these moveis on Christmas Eve while mum did the final toches to the Christmas table, and we were allowed a few peices of ham before it was "done up nicely" for the table.
THEN to completely add to my excitement, the SMH then gave away my FAVOURITE christmas movie with the paper on Sunday! The lovely little man at the counter seemed a little shocked at my squeals of delight!

On another note, I am completely obsessed with several things at the moment...

Nuno Fabric (so, so , sooooo want to buy some!!)

Threadless Tshirts like this one (and with their $10 sale on, I might just have to buy it!)

My Friend Anika's things on Etsty (0049Design)

Ok, well posting time is over now - back to fun things like emails, phone calls, direct mailings, how exciting does that all sound!
